All players (non-newbie) knows on the mud. Pet cant gain levels if the character is not leveling period.
personally i think if the pet gets the killing blow it should be able to gain exp.
Here is my issue on the problem with the code and im asking people input on it. Should this be changed?
Someone gave me a pet for gold and i pay will and i wanted to level it. problem is its to weak to try to get the killing blow or it just die with one hit from a mob in a low be area.
So my question is basically what can we change the current code to something more reasonable?

make the pet more powerful, find other areas?

spell up your pet before and during combat

sanctuary
bless
shields
wards
heals
refreshes


unravel defense the opponent
bane it
weaken it
curse it
faerie fire it
spit on it for good measure

What i find most frustrating about leveling a pet is that you basically have 3 chances per charachter. If you dont get a pet right away, around levels 1-11, then you can not level it once you get it. you have to wait untill you avatar to start training it. i suggest broadaning the level range so you can group it to within 15 levels of yourself, the closer to the maximium 15 levels, the more exp penalty, so it could level much more slowly if its farther away from your level.

the thing you might say is, why not let your pet level on its own, you just watch it so it doesnt get KO'd. the problem is if you are with your pet, it wont gain any exp and you will get the message, "That kill was to easy for your highest level party member" even if you dont group the pet.

Gilgolad, that's not quite true...you can level an infinite number of pets, if you just delete, or, like what I see more often, abort. A handful of players do this already. Also, you have 8 character slots, so unless you have 8 tri-avs you really want, there's not much reason not to do this.

yup, usually people make friends, or have trusted guildmates which can be used to transfer the pets between your characters.

make a new character, give it the pet, level up both

I was going on the fact that for your main char, you dont want to have to abort, and you dont necessarily want to make all those alts if your busy with a certain char over another one.

If you're busy with that alt, you're not gonna have time to level your pet anyway. It doesn't exactly take long to go from level 1 to level 50, especially with the aid of a pet. It's quite possible to easily do it before a pet even fully matures, so it's not a large amount of time.

just wanted to ask about this theory on the weaker pets like spiders or cats is it possible to level faster if the pet is not powerful enough? :arrow:

It will be slightly harder, but, from what I've seen, levelling fast enough generally isn't a problem unless you're just sitting around not doing anything...You can easily get to av, and probably master a craft or two before a pet fully matures. If I'm not mistaken, Jimi was tri-av some where around age 21, and that was with focusing on guild matters and a small amount of idling. Of course, that was basically power levelled (not illegally, just the character and group set up) but it's still perfectly possible to level quickly enough without that because you can only speed it up so much..
