First off, I'd like to say that this new pet evolution system actually got me back into the game. I had quit playing for about a year. I was really excited about the fact that venos would get some new perks. Now here's why I'm upset (skip over the italic if you don't give a !@#$ about my pet story):
When I was just a little lvl 12 veno a bit over 4 years ago, I found out about the tabby. I wanted her so badly that I went to every spawn time once I hit lvl 20. I had to compete against higher lvl venos with -chan gear and pots. Of course, each time, either I would fail, or a veno would kill it, or I wouldn't even have a chance to finish taming.
About 2 months in, I thought the poor thing was going to die again. The other venos had failed. 50% HP... 40% HP... 30%HP... Still casting... 20% HP... Her pet is about to inflict the last deadly hit... And the tabby disappears. I was about to log off when the big bold Success! popped up. And yes, there it was, sitting in my inventory: a tabby plumdrop egg.
Since that day, my little Aly has always been by my side. Rare pet hunting became a hobby, and when ever I would see a noobie veno get disappointed, I would summon my little ball of fur and say:"You see this little cat? When I was just a little veno..." and tell her this story. I would always finish with "So never give up, don't lose hope, and keep trying. One day you'll get it." . It was my way of boosting her moral, and it worked.
Now Aly is lvl 100 - and actually the only pet I had the patience to lvl (my nix drove me crazy) - and has a few special skills to make her OP, which actually cost me quite a few million$.
Now imagine my dismay when I learned that the tabby (ok ok, and snow hare) is the only rare pet that doesn't have access to the new perks...
Why oh why PWE? Why couldn't you simply make the tabby fluffier like you did with the cuddly pup?
Giving the pets a new form might be a challenge, so here's my suggestion:
Let every other pet evolve and beneficiate of the new perks and simply give them a golden aura instead of a whole new form. Or something like that.
