Tera Online has decided to give all of its player base a new way to enjoy the game. As of April 11, 2013 you will be able to buy pets from the item shop. Adopting these cute pets are not only for show but come with some cool features. So far the only mmorpg that has added pet's that actually do something is Ragnarok Online.
There are 5 pets so far to choose from. They are Rambo, Prince, Dragonette,
Carnivorous Plant, and Candyspinner. Rambo is a ram, Prince is a cute frog,
Dragonette is a baby dragon, Carnivorous Plant is one of the Venus fly trap
plants which is found in some maps in game, and the Candyspinner is the most
unique it's a little bear in a multi-colored jump suit that spins on top of a
rainbow colored top and carries lollipop's.
Pets can be personalized by the ability to change their names. So you are
not forced to keep them the names they come with you can name them what ever
you want. This is a nice feature which is the same as what ragnarok online had
to offer you where able to name pets or rename pets.
These pets are not the same pets many people saw during the closed beta of
Tera Online. Those pets where vendors of items like shops which could be placed
all over different parts of town to sell items. The pets that these are will
follow you around and provide the useful skill of picking up items for you.
Pets do require much responsibility and in Tera Online you will have to feed
your pet to keep its energy up so you can send it out to help you loot. Pet's
won't do their task if they are hungry so as a good master buying food for them
will be your job. You can purchase food at merchants in any town or you can buy
high quality food from the item shop.
Once a pet is used on an account it is bound to that character. You can
access the pet window from the activities menu in game. And pets can be
summoned by a summon pet skill located in your skills window. For now that's
most of the information which we know at this time but once more information is
known about pets I will update this article to provide more information.
