I AM SO EXCITED!!! The new pet battling system sound really cool and you can finally place pets in your house! I hope that no other pets take place of my Armadillo...

Quote from the Article: "The Pirate101 Pet system may be a little different than what you're used to! You'll be sending your Pets out to train on world-based activities (Like Crane Meditation in Mooshu or Hay Bailing in Cool Ranch) while continuing on with whatever you were doing previously in Pirate101.

In general, Pet training activities take three things: Time, Energy Cost (you'll have a new orange globe by your health and mojo potion indicators), and most require special pieces of Pet Gear. After training your Pet, you'll be given a chance to feed your pet a snack to grant them even more experience or stat upgrades!"

. . . you can read this as no mini-games.

Oh I was SO hoping that's what that meant. *Does happy dance backflips and lands with perfect swashbuckery flair and ends with a brilliantly executed swoosh and flourish of the plumed hat.*
You confirmed my highest hopes and made my year. *Starts singing, "They listened, they listened, they care, they care" and goes into silly overdrive.*

Oooh, I can't wait either, sounds like a fantastic way to mix things up a bit in the Spiral. And every pet does need a home, so it is great that they finally get a place to lounge around. I hear you about hoping poor little Armadillo doesn't take a back seat...I too have become quite fond of that oversized little roly-poly guy. Definitely can't wait to see all of these new 'toys' in the game. Very eager to see how more effective the new pets will be in combat

This will either be a flop, or the most fun thing I will ever have the pleasure of playing! I hope that my armadillo will become unstoppable. For morphing, I have a spare armadillo! I can't wait!

Is pet training for members only. Because my membership is going to go out soon and I really want to upgrade Admiral Peanut.

:O finally our pets will become useful in battle.

Also excited about the housing update (I have plenty of mounts and pets that need to be unleashed to my houses XD )

Well, we finally get to let our pets and mounts roam free in our houses! Thanks so much! Now, if we could only allow our Companions to roam around in our houses, we would be very happy.

I agree these pet changes are soooooooooooo cool! I can't wait to send Admiral Isabella ( my armadillo) to CRUSH YOUR ( adorable and irreplaceable) PETS! Those new areas are gonna have to wait 'cause my dillo and I are going to have a serious pirate and pet day! ( needless to say I'm hitting the Armadisco )

I almost forgot to ask, what is the minimum level requirement for the Advanced Pets? I'm certain there's a level requirement for that.

From One Eyed Jack on the central forums- We're definitely going to have a full run on the Test Realm with the Advanced Pets system as balance is sure to be looked at, and I’m sure we'll have a lot of valuable player feedback. Our feeling is that if you've leveled your Pirate to 65, or you've leveled your Pet to 65, then you've already put in all the work to earn the rewards. You can transfer that pet to a new, low level character, and your pet will happily romp all over the low level content.
Does this mean that if we have a pet on a low level pirate, from a high level pirate, then will that pets level be dropped? I certainly need to do some pet swapping....

Now that I see you have been trying to figure out a way to implement advanced pets without ruining p101, I understand why the latest update is taking so long. Please take your time. Let test realm percolate your system. I apologize for any impatience before I knew how much fundamental change is coming. Pet training soured my experience of wizard101, so I know how carefully you've considered all this. We will see the new system soon enough, and it sounds like you've eliminated the "Salt Mines" experience of Mini-games.

Would y'all believe I just recently went through and sold all of my duplicate pets?!

Aaargh! I could have made so many morphs.

Like a lot of other people I'm really excited for advanced pets

When I first saw the teaser pictures i thought it would be ship pvp, but this sounds like a whole lot of fun.
I'm definitely impressed at all of the effort kingsisle has put in this next update.

See you in the skyways

Pet..... Training? *Grumble grumble grumble* So, the Aquilans think Bat Masterson isn't fit enough to be a hero, yet they think pets are? Has logic left the Spiral? I mean, why would the Aquilans suddenly move to Skull Island? And pets can now go through metamorphosis? What has Pirate101 come to? Tell me the next world(s) will make up for this mistake.........
