I'm uncertain as to the use of these. In a game like Maplestory they are invaluable as they help you loot much faster on crowded maps. Vindictus has no such thing...so what exactly are pets going to do, besides exist?

afkalmighty of Vindictus HQ has translated the test server patch notes:

Pets have been updated

-Pets are account-bound.
-Pets gain experience after completing a battle and can be used up to a maximum of 2 hours each day.
-Pet food and feathers [yes feathers] can be bought from Aislinn.... I wonder if I got her name right.
-The following pet related cash items are available
Pet resurrection stone : Can be equipped on your pet to auto rez (3day period)
Pet attack stone : Can be equipped on your pet to increase it's attack
Owner defense stone : Can be equipped on your pet to increase your defense when you have your pet out.


Twinked the whisper function

Character social action /dance added

Will stat improved to give additional HP up to a maximum of 1200

Putting up a item up on trade will now be loaded in the number of the particular stack you chose.

The soldier on the Rochest dock will now also sell seal items.

so, pets are free, but you get bonuses from Cash Shop..... but nevermind that, it's time to stack WIL!

They...twinked the whisper system? So is it still really low level now, but can 1 shot all other whisper systems? XD.

Anyway, I think WIL was always supposed to add HP, so isn't that considered a fix? Free pets are cool and all, but from the footage I've seen they don't seem to do anything but stop you from getting screwed out of items that fly out of bounds. That and function as another form of DEF stack, but most people are there anyway now...so that's not going to be an issue.

Good to see the game isn't on the dying path yet though, it deserves more attention than it gets.

and apparently, it's 2000 WIL for 1200 HP

not sure if it's possible to get that much without the stat boosting transformation skills
