I. What are pets?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pets are generally monsters that you can "pet" and become your companions
while exploring the world of Midgard...... This feature is currently NOT
IMPLEMENTED in the International version of the Ragnarok Online servers 
and will be implemented in June, having played the other versions of 
RO (Which now has pets) , I made this guide to help people on how to 
capture, take care and have an idea on pets in RO in general.

As far as I know, these are the pets that you can capture in Ragnarok 
Online :

Poring
Drops
Picky
Lunatic
Chon Chon
Savage Babe
Rocker
Peco Peco
Spore
Poporing
Smokie
Poison Spore
Steel Chon Chon
Orc Warrior
Munak
Sohee
Isis
Dokaebbi
Hunter Fly
Green Petite
Deviruchi
Baphomet Jr.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
II. What is needed to get them?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
To start, you need the taming item that is suitable for that monster,
for example, to capture a Drops, you need an Orange Juice.

A "Pet Incubator" is needed to "hatch" the egg and receive the monster.
To use a Pet Incubator, double click on the Pet Incubator, after that,
a list of eggs which can be hatched will appear, in which click on the
on the egg you want and press "OK".

Also, a "Pet Food" is required to feed your monsters, this is very
important, since if you skimp and/or forget to feed your pet, the
monster could run away or die. But the direct opposite is also 
possible, they can also die if you over feed them too much.....

To get most of these items, when the pets are implemented in RO,
there will be new NPCs which would sell these items.

This is a table of which item is needed to "tame" a particular monster :

Unripe Apple             = Poring
Orange Juice             = Drops
Shining Stone            = Green Petite
Armlet of Obedience      = Isis
Baked Yam                = Smokie
Book of Devil            = Baphomet Jr.
Bitter Herb              = Poring  
Book of Devil            = Deviruchi
Deadly Noxious Herb      = Poison Spore
Dew Laden Moss           = Spore
Earthworm the Dude       = Picky
Fatty Chubby Earthworm   = Peco Peco
Horror of Tribe          = Orc Warrior
Monster Juice            = Hunter Fly 
No Recipient             = Munak
Old Broom                = Dokaebbi
Rainbow Carrot           = Lunatic
Rotten Fish              = Chon Chon
Rusty Iron               = Steel Chon Chon
Singing Flower           = Rocker
Well Dried Bone          = Baby Desert Wolf
Silver Knife of Chastity = Sohee
Sweet Milk               = Savage Bebe
Tropical Banana          = Yoyo

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
III. How to catch a monster
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
To catch a monster, simply double click the taming item, and target the
monster you want to catch.

(PS. You will have a better chance of catching them if you damage them 
 first, the less life they have, the more chance you can catch them.)

After that, you should see a kind of slot machine with only two choices,
"success" and "failure" click on the button to stop the slot machine,
when the machine stops on "failure" , you have failed and would never
get an egg and wasted the taming item. If it stops on "success" , the
monster would disappear and you will get the monster egg.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
IV. What to do after a successful capture
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
After getting the egg from that monster, you will now need a "Pet
Incubator" .

To use a Pet Incubator, double click on the Pet Incubator, after that,
a list of eggs which can be hatched will appear, in which click on the
egg/monster you want and press "OK".

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
V. Pet Commands
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pet Information :
In this command, you will be shown a window that lists it's name (Where
you can rename it ONLY ONCE) , it's level (It also levels up just like
the player.) , it's hunger level (From "Very Full" to "Full" to "Normal"
to "Hungry" to "Very Hungry") and it's affection towards you.

Perform / Performance :
The pet will perform certain stunts for you. This "stunt" will be 
different on the monster that you have and it's current relationship
with you, the monster will perform a different stunt if it hates you
and a different one if it likes you.

Feed Pet :
Feed your pet.

Return to Egg status :
Tired of your pet? Then revert it to egg form through this command,
while the monster is reverted to an egg, it will never go hungry and/or
run away.... However, to hatch them again, you will need to use another
"Pet Incubator" ..............

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
VI. Maintaining your Pet
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
After hatching the egg, you can first set a name for it, after setting
it once, you cannot change it again, to think carefully of the name.

Then look at it's status by right clicking on your pet and choosing
"Pet Information" , if they are from normal to Hungry, feed them NOW,
or you will risk the pet running away from you.

So generally after that, you just need to feed your pet whenever it's
hunger change to "Normal" or lower, also, giving them an equipment
could also improve it's affection towards you.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
VII. Pet Accessories
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pet accessories are "equipment" that can be used on a monster, however,
currently, it only provides an extra eye-candy for your monster, such
as glasses for your Rocker and a backpack for your Poring.

Here is the list of Pet Equipment that is found is RO (As far as I know
anyway..... ^^)

Backpack       = Poring
Rocker Glasses = Rocker
Bark Shorts    = Poison Spore

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
VIII. What are next on Pets?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
According to official statements from Gravity and some Ragnarok fansites,
in the near future, pets would be also able to assist the player directly
and/or warn them of dangers and other problems.....

For example, if you are dying, a monster would suddenly show emoticons,
and/or say something. They would be also able to gather item 
drops by monsters......

Also, they would be able to assist the players by attacking the monster
currently being attacked by the player.

For Ragnarok Online, but NOT Gravity anymore. I now officially hate 
Gravity because my account got banned because of a stupid pic......... 
Sad really.... They should be more busy banning scammers 
and the trade bug abusers......... -_-

Anyway, if anyone has seen any wrong spellings and the such, you can
