Carnage-

Add a pet reward to Kings game survival

Recommended Posts

I'm fairly sure it's the only map missing one; can one be added at wave 15/20 ?

My suggestion for a pet is a "weighted die" pet; which would be a reskinned Cube made up to look like a slightly battered die

I've always had the idea of giving a random pet(randomness fits well with theme of the map) from the Vanilla Game and/or any Non-Eternia Shards DLC, but in decent quality(Trans+) only on wave 30 and only 1 single item(i.e. no extra pets for more chars).

The reason I suggested a weighted die was simply that the effort to create and add it is fairly low but it would still be a cool reward

I want one! :)  Can it fly lower than a cube and have somewhat better range?

Who cares about range, Id rather see it somehow be able to do different attacks. Or possibly spawn in multiple elements? Red/Green/Blue/White with a very rare chance of spawning with all 3 elements and be Black...

If you've ever upgraded a cube, they tend to fly kind of high and miss things, and they would do a really good job of grabbing mana, except their range is poor :(  That's why I suggested it.

I still think this would be cool :)

Is this still able to be done? I think it would be pretty cool. Maybe a different pet is an option if the one suggested above doesn’t work. I would do more survival King’s Game if there was a pet reward added.

I've added this to our backlog. Can't guarantee it will be in update 4, but it's on our radar.

What wave should it be on? 

 ・ The original post suggests 20.
 ・ I put it on 25 for the time being since that's in the middle of the useful farming waves.
 ・ Thales thinks it should be on 30 (final wave).

Thoughts?  I can change it from 25.

If there is no reward for 30, I'd say put it there. Might as well have SOME reason to go there.

I think 30 probably does make sense

I'd concur with w30 reward; and in doing so, you could make them have really good (or at least decent) drop rates.

But I also agree with the idea of keeping with the randomness of the map and the jester, and having it reward random pets from a small drop pools (ideas for the pool: genie, fairy, imp, dragon, animus, guardian).

Is that doable?

We were talking about putting the dice on wave 30.

We could still do Mambo's idea and put a random pet on wave 20 if the community supports it, although there haven't been too many posts about it yet, so I'd like to see more support for that first.

Maybe change to random pet on wave 15?

How good a random pet are we talking? If it doesn't roll at least a little better than the various campaign survivals where they are normally found, then there's not really any reason to have it there at all besides just for flavor, since the only difference would be that you couldn't farm a specific kind.

I do still support the idea if other people want it, for aforementioned flavoring reasons... especially if it can roll up stuff you can't normally farm on Nightmare, like Guardians.

I think if the random pet should be only the ones you need to get for the “I’ve Got Monsters in my Pocket” minus the republican elephant and democrat donkey
