While I do like a lot of the pets in this game, two things bother me about pets like this:
It’s only cosmetic. We have what, 34 kingdoms and probably 20 troop types that need bonuses, plus all 6 colors, and gold/xp/soul pets. So, you have plenty of things that could be attached to pets long before you need to make cosmetic only.
This comes out once a year. So, unless you spend hundreds of Gems, this will take you years to Mythic. Which is ridiculous.
The only saving grace in #2, is that the pet is cosmetic only. But, can’t we find a better compromise between having a bunch of “useless” pets taking years to Mythic and having more readily available pets that actually do something?
I don’t get it, man. Pets make no sense to me, overall. The battles can be tough, all for a copy or two for something that barely has a bonus (or none at all), that is (now) tied to Kingdom Power and could take years or hundreds of Gems to Mythic for really no more than a “pat on the back” and a “good job, random player.”
I guess just file Pets under “Things I Don’t Really Understand About The New Gems Of War.” Sigh.
