Foe Reaper from Deadmines, stuck with breed

Postby Peanutty » June 17th, 2017, 12:44 am

Well this was not well thought out. Foe Reaper 0.9 has 3 possible breeds but not only is it not cageable (which makes sense given the new currency system) but it can't be released either.

I'm now "stuck" with a S/B Foe Reaper that I can't get rid of and my policy is no duplicates, so... now what? :cry:

Definitely report this as a bug. Doesn't seem like it was intended and the 3 breeds were probably from the time when the pet was a drop and cageable.

Think this was also initially the case with Bonkers, which was later made removable, and finally, tradeable. Most likely an oversight, in fact, I see no reason for them not to be tradeable so I would expect it to follow the same path eventually.

Thanks, Peanutty!

I didn't even notice that it had three breeds, stoned and levelled mine (P/B) without thinking.

Oh, that's evil. I have to admire the slipperiness of it. :) I doubt that it's a mistake; rather, the devs' way of saying "You think you're done just because you bought all the pets? look again, sucka!". Do you think they sold their souls to a Demon of Randomness? It would explain a lot....

I'm really trying to convince myself it doesn't matter (because, really, am I going to need to use this pet in the future, especially with a specific breed?) but I'm not a very convincing liar. :? I did submit a bug report, in case it really is an oversight, but for now, this guy will be last on my list to level.

As a warning, it appears Tricorne also comes in multiple breeds.

Unsure about Pocket Cannon though. Originally it was the reward from the Deadmines Challenge achievement, and achievement pets usually only come in one breed. It's possible the one breed has stuck even after becoming a vendor pet.

I logged a bug report as well, just in case it makes a difference.

We should not be precluded by RNG from ever getting the breed of pet we want.

Well, heck. I never noticed the different breeds. I suppose that means once I have one of each pet, I'll keep running and buying more to try and get the other breeds.

I'm hoping this is just an oversight though. I really don't want to think the devs are being that devious to keep us running and it would pain me to have to release any duplicates since they can't be caged.

Now I wonder whether to wait with buying anything until I get all 6 coins…
