When there’s a full day pet rescue, like on Wednesdays, you can’t trigger an hour pet rescue. Makes sense, only one pet rescue is allowed at a time. This unfortunately means on days like Wednesday, PvP is useless to those of us who only do it for pet gnomes. I’ve been busy this week so wasn’t able to get to Tier1 on Monday. I finally had time today, Wednesday, but without the potential pet gnomes it’s a waste so I’m not bothering.
Recently there was a post asking the devs to remove pet weekend from gnome weekend because of that issue. The devs did (yay thank you!), but it highlighted how this is a problem in general.
Here’s some ideas on how this may be solved. Anyone want to add their thoughts, either adding on to these or other ideas?
Whenever there’s a 24 hour pet rescue and someone kills a pet gnome, override the 24 hour pet rescue with the 1 hour pet rescue. After the hour, revert back to the 24 hour rescue.
Have the 24 hour pet rescue separate from the 1 hour pet rescue. You know how with the recently updated gnome vault, you can choose either the regular vault or the epic vault? Same concept, but with 24 hour and 1 hour pet rescue.
When someone kills a pet gnome, they get a key that can trigger a pet rescue any time they want. Works like a gnome bait in that if one is already running, it won’t do anything. Would allow others to kill their own gnomes while a pet rescue is running instead of sitting there. However, you’d be limited to one pet key at a time (again, like gnome bait).
