Discord Eggstract – Pets – 21 May 22

Hey everyone. This is the first post of this kind that I’ve been able to put together, but was actually one of the main reasons I started putting this site together. Whilst some people might tune into AMAs, catch some Twitter posts or read an artcile on Medium, it’s still really easy to miss some information.

The following is a collection of information about the upcoming Pets release that might be of interest to you.

The Cost of Hatching Pets

There are still no definitive prices / list of tokens that we’ll need to incubate the pets. After yesterday’s great preview (covered here) of some of the features, we know that there’ll be three tiers of incubation that will affect chances of summoning a mythic pet and the speed at which pets are incubated:

So. Gaia’s Favor, Gaia’s Grace and Gaia’s Boon. Great. We still don’t know how much they cost or what they’ll cost, though. However, here’s some information that might narrow things down for you:

So no Runes, at least. Which is good, as Shvas Runes are in far too short a supply already.

So different coloured eggs will require different tokens to incubate.

I suggested yesterday that Gaia’s Boon was going to be expensive, but over five times as expensive as Gaia’s Grace is definitely going to be on the steep side.

The thing that I found most curious was, during the middle of an impromptu Discord Q&A, on the subject of costs, Hubert responded to a screenshot of somebody’s inventory (that was shared separate to the ongoing conversation) with this:

Could it be that Lesser Attunement Crystals are one of the tokens we have to spend on the Gaia’s Boon option? Who knows, but a curious segway for Hubert if not.

Feeding Pets

I asked Hubert if feeding would be something you had to do regularly with pets

And to clarify the tokens that will be used, Mortis ask if would be using existing materials (loot from the current L0 Profession Quests):

When asked if feeding pets affected the level of bonuses that would be applicable, Hubert went on to say that pets that aren’t fed “don’t cooperate at all”. So, gotta feed ’em or pointless having them, essentially. But, he also said that if you don’t feed them, they won’t die or run away.

Also of interest was that it doesn’t matter what the pet type or rarity, the feeding requirements will be the same:

Utility

To round everything off, there’s just a couple more comments about utility of eggs. First one is confirmation that blue eggs will hatch pets that can spawn with Fishing bonuses, grey eggs with Foraging, etc… but all pets that hatch can have almost any other type of bonuses, except for Gold Eggs which have some unique utility that’s yet to be revealed.

Conclusion

So whilst there was nothing that was particularly earth-shattering information, if you like having all the information available to you with as much notice as possible, hopefully this helped. If you think this kind of post is useful and would like to see more of them, please let me know in the comment section below!
