I want a pet. Actually, I want ALL the pets. I want to be the SK equivalent of a crazy cat lady.
I mean uhh... Yeah, great idea.
For now, I will just post this.
I sent this a while ago, but I guess it's kind of relevant to the thread.
These are little machines, kind of like a pet. They offer up very unique and helpful bonuses to their owner.
These are very similar to the Mags from Phantasy Star Online, but instead of offering bonuses based on types and personalities and feeding patterns, they offer bonuses in the forms of abilities.
They might heal your character by running and picking up hearts/pills and saving them for later.
Or taking the bombs you charge and running into nearby enemies with them.
Some might offer more defensive abilities like blocking ranged attacks with a weak shield.
These would change the way players play the game, allowing you to bring the pace of the game up.
Collecting parts for them and then combining them in the Pet window will produce different results.

A snipe of my very own. I'm in!
That picture is even funnier because you're wearing a Chroma Suit, made from Chroma. :P
To be honest, I personally don't like the idea of pets in games like this. It makes it seem more like one of those dreadfully easy games intended for kids, that are more about socializing than anything like skill-based combat.
only of the mech companions/golems. Pets would be nice, but, not follow pets, please. If we, for some reason, get a housing system in SK, then it would be cool to get a random egg from a drop of a monster (yes, an wolver egg too, if i may...or a construct egg too), and them incubate it in your house, just to stay as a wandering decoration >_<
Yeah, I'd be fine with that. I don't know if Mecha Knights will function as pets, but it'd be cool if they followed you around.
As i saw here, it will be mostly like that you find then in a floor, willing to help, them you power it up, and they help at the floor...it is good, but i would like to have a permanet one for me.
Am thinking a companion gremlin that could partner up with you when you reach tier 3 and the outcast gremlin town.
It fits, plot-wise.
Pets would make Spiral Knights even more cutesy than it already is. I want one. I want my very own Kleptolisk following me around, stealing things from mobs.
I'll even trade you a trinket slot for it.
Just don't make me spend CE to feed it. Well, at least let me use either ME or CE to grow/evolve it.
Maybe we can have an event where we fight a Giant Snipe that drops Snipe recipes and Snipe materials so we can make Snipe pets.
I WANNA CUTE LIL" JELLY THAT FOLLOWS ME AROUND!!! YAY!!!
They could change into a subspecies and grow.
I want a pet! I don't care what it is, I love them all!
I support the "Companion Machines" idea from post #2 (mainly because I love the "Mag" System from Phantasy Star Online).
The "bonus based on pet" idea would work really well in this game (Even though, I would ignore this and choose my pet based on design only), and would give a little more "stats customization" to the player.
And now I want a blue-glowing fairy following me around screaming "HEY LISTEN" every 5 minutes.
Pets should be rare. Costing Like 100k, and will be dropped as an a born pet, but young. Dropped by it's related monsters. For Example: Baby Wolver -(Dropped By) Wolver Family.
(Sadly, There wouldn't be pets that heal, because OOO [Three Rings] said so.)
(Weaknesses And Resistances will be chosen depending on the Species.)
Royal Mini to Jelly Cube to Blast Cube/Ice Cube (Blast Cube Or Ice Cube will be picked by what potions are used the most. To be Blast Cube must have more Fire Potions Used, for Ice Cube, more Freeze Potions needs to be used, if same number used, chosen randomly.)
Effects (Above):At Royal Mini, will do damage as a Royal Mini would. At Jelly Cube, does the same damage as it does. At Blast Cube, does the same damage it does, does blow up every 1 minute, not effecting you or you're teammates. At Ice Cube, does the same damage it does, does freeze every 1 minute, doesn't effect you or you're teammates.
I like the pet idea, but it might be anoying if you had to feed it every few hours.
Agreed that you shouldn't fed it.
But what if I want it to stay a Jelly Mini forever and ever? :D
Too bad! :o...
You could possibly buy a de-evolvion pill? making it stay for what it is.
they should make pets that follow you around and help you kill monsters.
with me being a deadly virulisk I wanna deadly virulisk for a pet X3 nope not a pet but as a baby brother XD!!!
I'd like this.
I think that pets should work like mecha knights, but less powerful and able to be brought in, out, and through the clockworks.
AND I WANT MY OWN JELLY CUBE, DANGIT!
Maybe you could choose evolve it? And maybe make it a personal choice by choosing to 'feed' it your Heat; sacrificing equipment progress for your pet. And to balance this out, he/she needs a LOT of Heat.
I am totally up for this! Snipes, Wolvers and Jelly! :D We should be able to take them on the adventure with us, but you can only take like 1. It should also be able to help you out in he journey and stuff like that. I also agree that they need a lot of heat to evolve and stuff like that. Snipes are cute as, people!
YEAH! I love the idea of an assist type creature stalking you around! But there are possibilities that I'd love as well!
For obtaining them:
Like maybe you collect samples of the monsters, then pay a cost to create them into the actual creature?
Or you fight one, beat it, and it decides to join you 'cause it thinks you're awesome? (But that would be rare, like how they do it in pokemon dungeon.)
Or find an egg hidden somewhere and keep it and feed it heat till it hatches!
Or some tool that allows you to tame one! (Lawl, chain a gremlin)
Or you buy them. (Meh. Less fun, but still plausible.)
My favorite idea is like the one on Digimon world. You start with the base creature, and it's next up evolution path is shown. Based on what you do with it, you can choose what it becomes! Each branch has a criteria that must be reached to allow it too become that type, so you can leave it as it is, or chose it's evo path!
Or they can be like pokemon, where they just follow whatever path they have. (Booooring!)
I'd Love the idea of having a little pet to follow me around! But it'd have to do something, it being like something that just stares and blinks at you all the time would just be boring.
Or a machine could work. Robot slaves!
Teehee. This idea has so many possibilities!
What is this? Idea deficit? No more posts after mine. Either nobody cares about this topic anymore, or...I dunno.
Just leave either a definite no for this idea or leave it as still in progress. Otherwise people will make more threads about this like they have already. Then we'll have 20 threads with the same topic but different ideas.
Prediction came true. There was a new thread on this idea just a while ago >.<
Won't say I told ya so...wait...I just did...dam....
You should be able to hire them as a hireling, which would be really nice. Gremlins overall are annoying but having one fighting by your side is quite fun
I want JELLY KING for my pet!!!
And make 4-player parties even more chaotic than they already are? No thanks.
Kay, this is turning into a Pokemon thread.
But still, as another option, they don't actually need to DO anything. Some people are right, they could just be a snipe perched on your shoulder/helmet. Doesn't matter. It'd just be nice to have the option.
WOW!! i never thought of having pets on spiral knights but tha would be AWSOME!!!
like how it will block you it would be VERY helpful in devilish drugery levels.
and how it will pick things up for you in a extra storage AWSOME!!!!
but to even things up a bit you should have to feed it and it would cost money
and you can upgrade it pirmanetly for ce and cr it would be AWSOME!
Someone other than me keeping this thread alive, Highfive!
The only pet I could understand having is a kleptolist to hide my pills in from other kleptolisks. Plus, whenever I need my pills, all I gotta do is eat him. Hey, I belive in tasty pets, it's just my opinion. Same goes for snipes. I've got my eye on those tasty little buggers...
Jelly...soo much jelly...everywhere...
/pulls out toast
Comes in Multiple flavors! Frosty, hot, plain, toxic(ewww), licorice, orange, and all with or without nuts! ^^
YOUR TOAST get it (meme face)
licorice pisses me off.
Forget the jelly, all you are now is nuts ^^
You are what you eat :D
LOL and i want a royal jelly pet with armys of green gaints green mini and royal mini :D
If i got a pet it would have to be those birds in Heaven. Maybe they can go around finding tokens and items for you if you treat them good. And then they grow huge and and fly you around!!!! IMAGINE THAT!! THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!
They won't put pets into the game. It will give the game the feeling and vibe that it's meant for children. OOO isn't going to cut off half their players, especially the half that is paying.
As most other suggestions, people don't HAVE to get them. The option will just be there for people who WANT to use it. Like the damage counter, or costume armour.
GM Edit: Removed 11 pages' worth of <3. I shall translate it as the player in question being in favour of the OP's idea.
I seriously hope you're trolling.
Double post. I hate you internet-failage.
This WILL hurt you.
brb, assuming direct control of the citadel.
Uh oh D:
*hides from the accursed ban hammer*
I would love a wolver following me around and attacking enemies
nice necro from above, again
