I have to say, today’s topic is one of my least favourite topics to cover as I’m actually a bit bitter with the way that Pets work in Punball. While last week I covered the awesome A-Rank Pets players can gain access to, what I didn’t cover was one of the most frustrating parts of Punball.
As many of us, if not all of us know, upgrading your Gear and Pets is going to be the most important element to Punball in order to complete more difficult stages. Players are free to upgrade and recycle their Gear as they please, being able to recycle all elements of the Gear.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m referring to being able to recycle Scrolls, Coins as well as any Gear that was used to fuel the level of the piece of Gear. The only time players will not receive their resources back from upgrading Gear is when a player upgrades the Gear’s level beyond the tier that it is currently at. For example, if a player takes a piece of Gear from Epic to Legendary, they will not be able to deconstruct the Gear to get back the Epic Gear and are simply stuck with a Legendary piece of Gear.
Being that Pets work in a very similar way to Gear it would feel obvious that the Pets work in the exact same way, but this is not true.
Essentially, players need to be more careful with their Pets than they do their Gear as anything can be refunded for Gear. With Pets the only refund players can receive is the level of the Pet which requires Coins and Food.
Now, the same is not true when players Evolve an Epic +1 Pet or Legend +1 Pet. Essentially when players Evolve Pets they will consume that Pet for good as if that Pet actually ate the Pet used to fuel. So, please only upgrade Pets when you know you’re going to use them in the long run as the very shocking part of this mechanic is that players will not even be able to utilize a +1 Pet to evolve another Pet. To explain, you cannot use a Legendary +1 Thunder Wolf to evolve a Lendary Thunder Boar, this is extremely frustrating as you will end up with a bunch of Pets that you just never want to use if you upgrade the wrong pets.
I’m currently sitting on a Legendary +1 Fire Boar, which isn’t so bad, but now that I have enough Fire Wolves it’s kinda of… useless and I wish I could use it to fuel my Fire Wolf.
Luckily for players, having multiple of the same type of Pets isn’t the worst thing as you can send them on daily missions, but you still want to be cautious as Pets are such an important part of damage in any Stage.
I’m very curious if one-day Habby is going to change the way that Pets work as it’s quite frustrating right now, but I’m also curious how many of you got trapped in this mechanic.
