As a former CH in SWG I am really interested in learning more about the pet system in AA. I've been searching for a game since SWG that offers the same unique depth of game play as CH. I would like to hear some feedback from people who have played AA on the pet system, and maybe start some dialogue on how it could be improved in this version.

In ArcheAge you need to raise them from little critters. So if you want a mount, you need to raise a pet to become a mount. If you want a battle pet to be at your side, again you need to raise it to become a battle pet.

You get you first little critter for free by doing a quest at around lvl 5. After that you need to purchase them using Delphi Coins(From doing Trade routes).

Pets Wear Armor and have their own stats

That's right pets have their own interface screen (or mount screen), where you can see your pets current equipment and stats such as: experience, HP, MP, Physical Defense, Magical Defense, Speed...

They have 3 equipment slots on them (head, saddle, feet) for additional armor which will increase its defense, HP, leggings can give movement speed bonus... To get basic gear, just go to the Pet NPC but for more advance gear you need to craft them.

Pets have their own Level's

Pets have their own levels, and in order to keep them gaining XP, they must be summoned while you are killing mobs (they are not getting XP when the player turns in quests, nor from gathering or crafting), but you have to be careful and always keep an eye on them since they die really fast if a mob arrgo's them.

If you notice your pet has arrgoed a mob and it's HP is dropping, just unsummon it fast, this is by far the best solution to keep it alive, and when the danger is over, just resummon it again, and the mount will be back with the same amount of HP as before. If you are unlucky and the pet dies, you can temporary resurrect it, but it will have only 1 HP and it will run 30% slower.

To "fix" your pet, you need to bring it to the NPC near a stable, and for a fee (depending on the level of the pet) the NPC will revive your pet. But don't forget the game wold is huge and stables are only available on the starting continents. The north continent there are no NPCs to revive your pet, but there is an item that will fix it when it dies, this item can be bought from the stable NPCs, but its extremely expensive.

When the pet reaches a certain level, it will unlock new abilities to use!

Offensive Pets

Offensive pets are referred to as Battle Pets in ArcheAge. Battle Pets are different from your Mount pets. While Mount pets can attack enemies they just don't have the attacking power as the Battle pet has. So the Mount Pets are referred to as Defensive Pets.

Differences between a Mount pet and a Battle pet

Keeping the fact that all the usual pets can be used for attacking, but they are all significantly weaker than the Battle Pets.

Some comparison:

-Mount Pets can be used as attacking pets too but they are significantly weaker
-Battle Pets cant be used as mounts.
-Both pet types have the same Character Screen and use the same equipment.
-Both pet types have the same basic controls (skills), while the active skills differ.
-Pets can be obtained from a level 5 quest, but to create a Battle pet you need to do a quest at lvl 25.
-Battle Pets start of as a level 25 pet with 2 active skill and 3 more to be unlocked.
-Leveling a Battle Pet is the same as any pet.
-Gearing a Battle Pet is the same as any Pet.

Ordinary pet stats on the left, a Battle pets stats on the right. As you can see a Battle pet has significantly more power.

http://images.bluegartr.com/bucket/gallery/c4ae040c04aed4cad0eb538b1f8f2175.jpg

After you do the lvl 25 quest, you can now raise a little critter into a Battle Pet. Like I said before you can buy little critters from NPC's using Delphi coins(from trade runs). To turn a little critter into a Battle pet you need to feed it certain foods and gathered items while the little critter is growing up. You also need to do certain quests as well to get special items to feed it.

When your Pet skills get to advance ranks you can get otherworldly Battle Pets to be at your aide. These are much more powerful than the basic Battle Pets.

Battle pet can't be a mount, but a mount can fight on his/her own. They just don't have the attacking power that a battle pet has. As far as I know you can have as many pets as you want, but I could be wrong about that..lol

Defensive Pets

Defensive Pets are referred to as Mount Pets in ArcheAge, as you can ride Defensive Pets. Mount Pets can attack but they don't have any attacking power, but they do have a ton of HP. When you attack with a Mount pet, your mount will attack while your riding on top of him/her.

ArcheAge is a huge world, and exploring it on foot would be massively time consuming, so luckily you can create Mount Pets to explore the world and to get to your desired location faster. They are also handy to use as a shield to get away from a player or mob.

Gearing and leveling the Mount Pet is the same as any Pet.

Raising a Mount Pet

To raise a Mount Pet you need to do a quest at lvl 5 and upon finishing the quest you get your first little critter for free. If you want more little critters to raise, you need to buy them from NPC's for Delphi Coins(From Trade Runs).

To turn your little critter into a Mount pet you need to feed it certain foods and gathered items while the little critter is growing up. Again you need to do special quests to get some of the special items to feed it.

Here is a video that shows the process in super fast speed motion

Dual-Mount Pets

Many of the Mount pets can be raised to carry 2 passengers instead of 1. This is extremely handy, if there are two persons on a mount, the person on the back is free to shoot with his bow at things in range, while the person in front is "driving" it. (Handy in Battle)

There is a wolf pet and I WANT IT. O_O I like how it goes from "I'm a cute chibi puppy" to effing terrifying in five minutes. XD

What some of the mount info neglects is that the pets have drastically different skills, from what I've experienced. Playing an eastern human, the Tare mount has a mounted slash attack, a distance movement, and that stealth special.

The deer on the contrast is definitely an elven mount, favoring ranged attacks while mounted and a magic attack as well.

I'm curious to if the other race's mounts can be purchased as well. As much as Tare are cool in abilities, I don't rock how the lion looks. I'd rather just have a horse for my humie. @.@;

Farm Pets

Farm pets are called Livestock in ArcheAge, and they are very different than other pets.

-Livestock don't like you, so they constantly run away. You need to house them in a fenced area, coop, or barn. Scarecrows works as well, as they think someone is watching them.

-Livestock can be stolen from other players. Scarecrows work well for this as they put a 15m circle safe zone around them. But guild members can always steal them, as they are your friends..lol

-Livestock constantly need to be feed and groomed, or they will get sick and die. They can also catch a disease, and if not dealt with, it can spread to your other livestock. Even worse it can spread to your neighboring farmers livestock. Livestock also have a life span, so you need to put them out to pasture so to speak, after they expire....lol

-ArcheAge has a climate system, if you grow your livestock in a temperature they don't like, they won't produce as much food and materials for your farm.

-Growing, maintaining, and harvesting Livestock uses up Labor power. So you need to be careful what you do with Livestock.

I feel this is like WoW, where you get battle pets. I cannot say that this game is making a blatant rip-off of World of Warcraft's Battle Pet System because most MMORPG games are doing this anyway.

Requiem has posted a lot of good information from translated guides. It's worth noting that not everything they copied is 100% accurate, but it still gives you a good idea of what the system is like. Also, some of what is linked is from the 1.0 (or more generally, the later patches), which means we probably wont have the full variety of pets/mounts (or the taming system) until sometime after our launch.

This system is nothing like Battle Pets in WoW (and I wish people would stop using WoW as a reference to every other MMO). It's much more like pets from the Lineage series if you want to compare it to anything.

As a former CH in SWG I am really interested in learning more about the pet system in AA. I've been searching for a game since SWG that offers the same unique depth of game play as CH. I would like to hear some feedback from people who have played AA on the pet system, and maybe start some dialogue on how it could be improved in this version.

As a former SWG player and KR ArcheAge player, I will let you know now, the pet/mount system in ArcheAge is nowhere near SWG.
Yes, in both games you have to raise your pet but in ArcheAge, there is no CH class. Pets do not have many skills and really don't do enough damage to make a big difference.

bummer, this is something i think Trion/XL Games should consider adding more in depth later. Its a great little game within a game for serious pets with training and growth. I really really enjoyed playing a Tamer in UO too was one of my favorite things to do to seek out pets with the best possible stats and skills and traing them up to 7x and just set them loose on players/mobs

Most mounts are two seaters. Only very specific ones like the Tare aren't.

Pegasus glide like Gliders do, they have a short time limit, so they are actually a more of a grandiose glider to show off to others.

So pegasus are the only pet that can glide, but you never know what may come out in the future.

Serious? Wow again did not revolutionize squat! Ultima online in 1997 had battle pets and livestock and rideable mounts long before wow. Archeage's system sounds very similar to UO. Please do research before using an incorrect opinion and stating it as a fact to rally people behind your comment. The biggest issue with the internet, too many false opinions and everyone has one

I want to make mention it was nice to see some people backing up other games other then WoW for once, I think i will enjoy this community very much. :)

Anyway not here for that, I wanted to mention that there is a vid of a bear mount, that kinda seems to glide in it, maybe it is a bug or just a player-made vid, but you never know, maybe they made more then one 'gliding' pets just like you can dance and walk at the same time. :P

There are so many interesting pets, but at the same time it seems like those that do not want to have a fighting pet that follows them around would be having a bad time on land. Is there some short of balance on the matter, or those that have pets will simply be able to throw down more damage and have an advantage in both group and 1v1 situations?

No way, battle pets were in UO well before WOW, besides the pet system in wow is rubbish

Which race can have the fastest mount? Movement is important for me more then looks. Also which race is best for pvp? I think I rather have a mount pet for defense in pve and dps pet for pvp.

The nuian race has the fastest starter mount. However no mount is race locked and the better mounts can be bought by anyone. The fastest mounts aside from the lord mount are the bloodstock horses at mirage island which can then be upgraded to the black arrow once they hit level 50 for the price of 500g.

No race is best for pvp since there are no combat bonuses for races. However each mount has their own special abilities but most aren't really used for direct combat, only when engaging or escaping.

You can see their stats and abilities here:
http://archeage.gamepedia.com/Mount

Now for battle pets I have no idea which is better a lot of them are from world bosses or other methods of getting.
