Have you ever felt a bit sad when you see your adorable jackalope die mercilessly at the wretched hands of that evil Rooke? The way it gasps for breath, before finally falling into the ground. Its last gasps for air are drowned by the mechanical laughter of Rooke. The poor thing lies there, and it feels like some diabolical armada general is planning to eat it for dinner. And then the process gets repeated on the next fight, round 1

On behalf of pets, please make them stronger! I am not asking for El Toro epicness, but at least make them have the ability to endure 4-5 turns, rather than helplessly die in round 1.

Agreed. This makes me think of my jackalope Lord Kobe when he fights the ninja pigs. Please fix!

Well, they are actually good. In some battles, you will need as much damage possible, and they can draw attention away from you. Also, you don't have to go to a life fountain or use a mojo potion after they die. I think they made a post about something like this....

Ashley pulls her shoulders.
'' Don't know about you, but I love my little Pipper'' the jackalope on her lap snuggles and playfully bits her finger.'' Aww...
'' Captain!'' yells the crew.
'' Aw, come on. She's cute....Fine.'' Ashley pushes Pipper from her lap'' Weak or no, but i'm good with my pet. Pipper always has our backs in battle. Right guys?''
'' She more has my tale in battle'' Ratbeard mumbles, the suddenly yells in pain:
'' YEEWOWWW!'' he jumps in the air. Pipper was just sitting there. Everyone knew what just happened.
'' Ha. I agree with Ashley'' says Sara petting the jackalope.

Me poor ole Armadillo pet is but a shadow of what he used to be.

But game balance required some adjustments, perhaps as time goes by, further adustments will be made, if and when, I hope they get turned up a lil bit! Don't like me poor little critters out of the match before their first chance to attack, which happens frequently in upper levels.

Definitely. And maybe they could have a pet area in skull island to give pets talents/stats through some games similar to wizard101's pet pavilion.

Oh I don't think I could stand more of those monotonous pet games. As it is now, I lose them on purpose just to get though them faster so I can give my pet his treat which does the real growing. I love the idea of doing something to improve the pets, but maybe some other way?

Mostly my pets tend to stand exactly where I want to move to, thus changing my strategy mid fight. Keeps me on my toes - and my celestial dragon is just too cute.

I agree with you that the pet game are monotonous, but I actually enjoy training my pet.

*Whole room gasps*

Yeah, I said it. I like the pet games. Especially the pet races.

Agreed! I'm a Grumpy Warlord, and a Pet Captain. XD I love training my pet, and I've got a few different fierce hounds, one pure and two hatched. Pets can be really amazing (I don't know what I would do without Chance), if you take the time to give them the proper care that they need. Once you do this, they can be a huge help. My pet heals me with Sprite (the spell, not the drink, though that would be awesome) pretty much every time I get attacked, and he gives me extra health, which I need, because as a Necromancer I tend to spend too much time building up my traps and blades rather than keeping myself alive before I attack. I love my mega fierce hound, and it would be really cool if we can have a better pet system, like the one in Wizard101. Also... is there any chance that KI could add a new pet to Pirate101... maybe a War Dog? Ooh! Gonna go post that idea right now!

This is kind of true, and not. I think when you lvl up your pets do, so then lvl up and they will be stronger, or it is so, that so pets are stronger than others.

I do agree with this thread, but I look at pets as a kill-finisher. Silver Howler, my silver buffaloon usually finishes my kills for me, which is very convenient. They could be stronger though...
