Why not creating a lvl-up system for some pets ?

Hmmm ya it would be cool after lvling is so hard now...e.g 1 lvl for pet is +1point for its stats...something like this system would be rly great

I think it would need to be more than one level gained by a character to earn a +1 stat point. Imagine what someone with fairies or lightning bees could do after several levels and having faster and stronger attacks than new pets they could purchase at higher levels.

I don't think it's feasible.
If a pet grows with the character, they wouldn't buy pets!

Agreed. It will affect revenue so I can't see it happening.

The other thing - which I'm not that familiar with - is the monster ID codes. What would happen here?

Perhaps if money is the issue...sell pet equipment that enhances them...a bit stronger attack or a bit stronger armor rating.
Or perhaps a pet rejuvenation scroll that will heal a pet{s} but can only be used one time. Don't know if any of that is even possible but if there isn't a safe haven for pets being able to restore them once to full strength for maybe a third of the cost of a new pet would help with one ooops. It would still be your responsibility to use the scroll BEFORE they die.

Equip pets ... it will b cool, but with only normal drops for pets.

U can lvl from 1 pet to another, maybe than u can buy new pet !

If pet gets stronger to reach other class pets u can choose nxt or keep old !
If nxt than u can buy new pet and lvl it from zero again to nxt class pets !

Its only an idea, but equip these pets should b cool idea !

That means ... u can not only equip and lvl urself.....pets too !
And... compbatant can still sell pets !

I think equipment would work in a game type where you get an animal companion that levels/grows/equips as the game goes on. I can see equipment for pets in FT being a big hassle with needing to figure out what class each type of pet is and what type of gear it equips. There would also be goofy arguments like whether worms can equip boots at all or whether spiders can equip four pairs of boots.

And since pets don't respawn do you keep any gear they had when they die? (Not if they die as pets do die.)

Interesting options to think about for leveling, evolving, and equipping, but I can see it being a big mess.

I was more thinking of stat adjustments than literal equipment since we don't have a separate screen to view pets. Call them boosts...increase of strength..or armor or hp.
