Zaros Update – Large pet System Changes


Recommended Posts

  • Developer
Happy New Year, Zaros!
This update brings large changes to the pet system, giving them much more value than before. Take a moment to read through the changes below and as always - let us know what you think in the comments below!
Pet Shrine:
  • Located just north of edgeville bank (trapdoor), the Pet Shrine allows you to roll perks onto pets, giving them a greater use than just being a one-off cosmetic gathering dust in your bank.
  • Breakdown of Pet Shrine Interface:
    • Rating (top right) - All pets in Zaros have been given an individual rating from 0-100 based on their rarity, difficulty, or time required to obtain. This rating serves mostly as a cosmetic representation of the overall rarity of the pet, but also impacts your chances of successfully rolling perks.
    • Overview Tab - Lists all perks your pet currently has. Perks are bound to each pet "type"; Cosmetic recolors/variants of a pet will share the same perks. For example, all colors of the ikkle hydra pet will have the same perks. Once your pet has perks, you can choose to "lock-in" perks for a fee so that they are not re-rolled. The locking costs are as follows:
      • First slot: 5 tokens
      • Second slot: 10 tokens
      • Third slot: 15 tokens
      • Fourth slot: 20 tokens
      • Fifth slot: 25 tokens
    • Perk Pool Tab - Lists all available perks your pet can roll. All perks have an equal chance of being rolled (none are rarer than others). Some pets will have unique perks that only they can roll, which show as highlighted in the list.
    • Roll Perks Tab - Allows you to re-roll perks onto your pet using a new currency, "Pet Tokens". Pets can have a maximum of 5 total perks at once. Out of the 5 total perk slots, each one has a different chance of successfully rolling a perk from the pool. Base chances for each slot are determined from the pets overall rating. The first slot is always a guaranteed 100% success chance, so you'll always roll at least one perk no matter what!
      • Roll chances for each slot can be increased by spending more tokens on each roll:
        • 1 Token (default) - 0%
        • 2 Tokens - 5% applied to each slot
        • 5 Tokens - 15% applied to each slot
      • Roll chances can also be increased by 20% for a one time fee of 1x Pet Shrine Scroll, obtainable in the zaros store! One scroll must be used per each pet type.
    • Pet list button (top left) - Allows you to see a list of every pet in-game along with their assigned rating. Each pet is clickable and will show you their perk pool.
    • For further information, players may click the "?" button at the top right on any of these interfaces.
