Yeah I was thinking along those lines too. Like what if you have a companion to follow and go into battle with. Like in the old RPGs.
So like a cross breed of pet/companion/friend/Mount.
I think it would make the the three separate category in one and more personal one.
Pet: which follows from a toy
Mount: which you can ride
Companion(follow and battle, maybe it could be like a totem or helper in battle. Like an angel or spirit of encouragement boosts): which doesn’t exist.
Though, terms of programming, I think it would be too much for the Dev team to do, especially the daily bug reports, working on a new storyline, these little small things are just not essential I mean, it would be cool to have a MOUNT you can PET, FEED and INTERACT. Like great warriors and their noble steed.
