I don't think that the level of the Pet matters in terms of rewards. I have fought Decius's Pets with low level or a 65th level Pet and never have received a high level Pet Snack or Pet Gear. You might get the higher level rewards from sparring with other players.
If pet eggs are added as a reward from pet sparring, I reckon it should be a rare pet as a milestone prize, like your 50th/100th/150th etc victory against another player (not practice PVP), or as a reward for being a finalist in a PVP/Pet PVP tournament.
When you spar against me I don't reach too deep in the bag of rewards, but if you spar against another player I make sure to give out better rewards.
I love to spar with every pirate out there, but its more exciting to watch 2 pirates spar with each other!
Come on down to Bestia and get into a match for some fun.
Does that perhaps include oval shaped rewards?
Hmmmm..... I'm willing to give it a try, who wants to spar? The hardest part of sparring is waiting for an opponent. I'm willing to put in a few hours if someone else wants to try at the same time, see if we can get Decius to reach way down and scrape the bottom of that reward bag and bring up something shiny.
I don't even mind being out matched if it produces an egg and new info, I'm sure I'll get a hatch eventually ;-)
It's a holiday weekend so maybe some other folks have some time. Let me know my schedule is semi flexible.
Perhaps the pet sparring rewards should be based on the scaling of our pets' levels, from lowest level that should award low level snacks & common pet gear to the highest level yet, which should reward higher level snacks & much rare pet gear. The higher the pets' levels are, the more better the rewards from pet sparring should be. Does anyone else like this thought?
