Would you like to have a pet in the next Borderlands?

So, would it be similar to Bloodwing in use, or would it just be some random creature that sits around at the main hub world?


Similar to Bloodwing, you could call it in in addition to your natural power.


So basically it would be the equivalent of having a dog companion in Fallout/Skyrim, one that travels with you and fights with you. That could be kinda cool. Although I could totally see how people would complain about how it would make things easier.

Completely against this idea.

Thats a bizarre thing to want in BL. I don't see it happening

I would like this only if the pets didn't get involved in battles. I'd still like for them to have some kind of purpose though. Perhaps they could pick up items you wouldn't ordinarily be able to reach? For instance, a Baby Skag could crawl through a hole in a wall/log/etc. and come out with a random item, a Docile Rakk could go and grab something off of a cliff face that you couldn't ordinarily reach, or a Domesticated Cave Worm could dig into the ground and fetch things for you. Think of how the dog works in Fable, except take out the whole "pounce on a near-death enemy" thing.

Thats what it would relate to yes, i just feel like with all the creatures in Borderlands, why havent we been able to tame and ally ourselves with them? Especially Threshers, definitely Threshers.

I'd be in to it if it was like Torchlight and it could go sell my loot for me.

Really don't like the way you described it. So in that sense, no.

However, when I saw the TT I actually thought it was a great idea. Like class mods or relics, a "pet" slot or even pets with their own equips would be more loot to hunt for and choose between. So if they were things that were equipped and stuff, perhaps they'd give you passive buffs depending on the equips you give them or what type of pet they are. That kind of thing I'd be all for. But the way you explained it doesn't sound good for a game like BL.

This. One of my favorite features in Torchlight.
