[Changes to Animal Lore] Animal Lore skill will be updated as a stand-alone skill, to accommodate localization issues and player- and Dev Team-driven suggested changes. This update does not include any changes where Animal Lore coordinates with any other skill. Players will be able to use Animal Lore to gain two items of additional information about a given animal.
Secure Pet Trading[23022k]
Secure pet trading will allow players to sell or trade items for tamed animals and monsters using the trade window. To trade a pet to another player the owner of the pet can;
Speak the words, “[pet name] Transfer”
A targeting cursor will appear. The pet owner can then target the person they wish to transfer the pet to.
A trade window will automatically appear.
The trade window will contain a deed in the current owner’s portion of the window. This deed will display the pet type and the pet’s name.
The other player may then place gold (or other items) into his portion of the window.
Once both participants have clicked the gems to agree to the trade, the pet will automatically be transferred to the new owner and the deed will delete itself.
If the transfer is cancelled, the deed deletes itself and all other items are returned to their owner.
The following changes to taming animals and monsters were made to fix some outstanding issues;
A fix for pet commands including the “pet friend bug”.
Saying “stop” to your pet will clear any previous commands.
Pets will remember who their previous owners were. Previous owners are anyone who has tamed the pet or has the pet transferred to them.
The more previous owners a pet has had, the more difficult it will be for other players to tame it if it goes wild. This also means that players who were not a previous owner to the pet can tame the pet for skill gain.
Any previous owner may retame the pet regardless of their skill.
Pets that go wild will become more difficult to control. This change will affect both previous and new owners.
If line-of-sight is broken during the taming process, the attempt will automatically fail.
When transferring a pet to another player, the previous owner and the new owner will now receive the proper confirmation messages.
Pets will now only guard their owner’s corpse.
Fixes for various messages with relation to pet commands. Tamers who give commands to their pets that the pet does not follow will find that their pets will go wild faster than previously.
