Priest and Monk Arena Set Videos
The new video preview should be fairly representative of the set you will see in the final version of the game!
Pet Battle System Update
Since we last covered the Pet Battle system, there have been a few changes and things we didn't mention last time. The table below shows the new pet abilities added in the recent patches.
- You are now able to rename pets as many times as you would like.
- You are unable to use your character to attack the critters that you can do pet battles with.
- When doing a pet battle, only the pets you fight with will gain experience, which is granted relative to the amount of damage they do.
- During a battle, the mobs that are very close will disappear, leaving only the farther away mobs. They will not interact with you until the battle is over.
- Pets now have a quality similar to items which is not based on the pet itself, as the same pet can have different quality levels for different people.
- When your pet dies in battle, you can switch to the next one. The damage persists between battles now, requiring healing using a Battle Pet Bandage or Revive Pets.
- The auction house now has a section for the different types of pets. You can sell almost every pet after using the cage function in the pet journal.
