More About MMORPG with Pets

Game worlds are often inhabited by an incredible amount of a wide variety of animals — it can be both formidable, bloodthirsty predators and cute little animals living a peaceful life. As a player, you can often notice how they live a chore without notifying you, and watching their abilities often leads to thoughts about how they could be used for your purposes. Fortunately, many MMORPGs provide players with the Pet System. There are usually two types of obtaining pets: first of all, you can tame the creature you’ve found in the wild nature, and the second method is to buy a companion from traders or in-game store.

The taming in MMORPG with Pets are often has several types. Most likely, those tamer abilities are ranged depending on the chosen class of your character. It means that only Pet-Classes will have privileges in this activity, and heroes with other professions are limited in functionality and can only get the most basic taming skills or not have it at all.

Pets in MMORPG can be used as a cosmetic feature, or as a functional part of the abilities of your hero. The first example is clear. Still, the second needs some explanations: usually, when you obtain a battle pet, its skills will automatically add to the skillbar of your character, so that you have to control each action personally. It works as an extension of your hero, designed in the form of a beast. However, some online games move away from this concept. Developers of the pet-based games are trying to make this feature enjoyable and immersive by adding advances AI and sophisticated behaviour mechanics to beast NPCs, and they do it so well that some pets are becoming realistically wild and temperamental. It makes the tamer role more complicated and exciting.
