View Full Version : If non BL races could be BL...

If a non beastlord race could be a beastlord, what would their pet be?

That's definately appropriate for DE.
High Elf - Fairy!
Human - Bandit! They're kinda beastly, right? (Although my first thought for human was large rat..) Not to claim the status of a "real professional" in any one endeavor has been a small price to pay for the many benefits and pleasures of trespassing. ~Leo Lionni

I thought about this a bit when they announced Beastlords.
Human--I would have to say wolves...or moss snakes.
Halfling--Bixies! or, a smaller bear.
Dark Elves--Definitely spiders
Hmmm, Im drawing total blanks. Interesting thread though.
01-25-03, 11:15 PM
Well, seems kind of like one of those "if pigs could fly," kind of things, but I'd go with:
Human - Snake
Halfling - Bixie
Half Elf - Forest Drakeling
High Elf - Giant Wasp
Gnome - Rogue Clockwork
Dwarf - Skunk
Erudite - well, what animal has the biggest forehead?
Dark Elf - Snow Bunny
01-26-03, 07:37 AM
"Dark Elf - Snow Bunny"
I'd definately play one.

Wood Elf - Mini Treant
Half-Elf - a mule
High Elves - a snow cougar
Halflings - bixie obviously~
Humans - gnomes
02-05-03, 06:05 PM
gnomes would have voracious brute pets..
02-23-03, 11:11 PM
Haha. Humans with gnome pets. That would kick ass. They'd be HUGE at level 65, though.
03-02-03, 10:18 AM
Lets just be thankful that they didnt allow more races... no others make a bit of sense... they are part shaman... more animalistic in nature and no other race really fits their primitive style... The options available imo are the only ones that make sense... I could MAYBE see a froglok, but being of Mithaniel Marr it wouldnt make much sense either...
but... if I ever wanted to see a unique pet for a race it would have the be a smaller Ashenbone Drake model and would look awesome running around with a dark elf...
03-06-03, 08:51 AM
froglok = shroom from fungus grove etc
human = drowned citizens
gnomes = kobolds
dark elf = spiders (duh)
high elf = pixie or bat
half elf = they suck, they get a severed foot for a pet
wood elf = mini treant would roxor my soxors!
im drawing a few blanks now, ill get mor elater
03-09-03, 09:30 AM
Gnomes would have to have clockwork spiders. With the tick tock sound aswell.
03-11-03, 11:51 PM
Frogloks could have that yellow spider that they have in gukta
Dark elves could have werewolves
high elves could have fairies (redundant?) or unicorns
Half elves could have monkeys (maybe liiiiittle tiny brutes)
Iksar should have gotten sarnak pets
humans can share wolves with barbs or maybe lions
03-22-03, 06:46 PM
Human......well wolf is taken by barbs...but wolf is a dog and mans best friend etc.
But next would be any big cat....lion etc.
Halflings? Bixies are semi intelligent races so that wouldnt fit...plus halflings hate bixies and there is no real role play reason. im stuck...going towards big cat again...spend there life eating and sleeping.....cats halflings...yeah very similar...but u can thave cats for both human and halfling.birds i reckon....some kind of hawk or other bird...yeah i know they dont exist in eq...
DE-spider without a shadow of a doubt.
High Elves - Draklings......without a doubt. elves haughty dragons haughty....baby relation to Dragon ...drakeling.
dwarf.hrm i guess skunk is the nearest in game that we have...but Badger would be right.
Gnome........yeah clockwork is so wrong for a BL...but gnome ...heheh yeah u couldnt have a BL gnome it would have to be a unique class ...roboteer.......
Oh i must be really drunk tonight.just realised vahshir have biig cats as there pets............oh ignore me....

If Beastlords are part Shaman, WHY THE HELL do they get to use the same weapons as monks? Add their spells and pets and it's no wonder a level 60 bst with epic can solo a Dark Assassin.
03-24-03, 06:04 AM
Humans - Mountain Lions or Armidillos
Gnomes - Clockwork Spiders
Dark Elf - Spiders
Assling - Bixies
Wood Elf - Orcs
Half Elf - Rats
Erudite - Kerra Cat
Froglock - Kobold
Ogres - Should be gnomes!
Vah Shir - crawlies that look like THO
Dwarf - Skunks
Barbarians - Should be Polar Bears
Troll - Should be Guk Froglocks

uh, because we're a shaman/MONK hybrid. and honestly we should be getting far better hand to hand weapons than the ones monks get :P -----------------------------

Instead of spiders for dark elves, how about ghouls?
04-21-03, 07:14 PM
Iksar should have got scorpions.
04-30-03, 05:44 AM
halflings already have their pet laid out for them, the original beastlord is a halfling and his pet's name is Ember
gnomes should have clockwork giant minotaurs
dwarves should have tame crag chiks 'cos then they'd look like pirates...
ogres should have the snowbunnies
darkelves should have a small skeletal cat model
05-13-03, 07:56 AM
Well iam a little late on this topic but ...........
Froglok- Tadpole and it would grow into one of those HUGE sperms from HS
06-10-03, 02:41 PM
frogs, imo, SHOULD be able to be beastlords... and should have the 'poison arrow frog' warder, ala the small tree frog in Valor / loroks in Storms....
06-20-03, 08:09 AM
Im a bit late on this topic as well but a fun topic and off the top of my head I do think the spider is fitting for a dark elf beastlord but I would go some time of rotting or undead looking one. Perhaps even a skeleton in a spider form of some sort.

The pet should not be from an intelligent race
Halfling - Wasp
Dark Elf - Spider
Human - Rat
Wood Elf - Drixie
High Elf - Emeralde Drake
Dwarf - Skunk
Froglok - Snake
Erudite - Willowisp (really shark would be more appropriate due to ties to Prexus but who wants a PC you can only play in the water)

myself, i thought dark elves should get raven warders (yanno, like blood ravens in PoNightmare?) fit the dark and mysterious thing, and just imagine a level 65 dark elf BL with this frickin' huge flying pet.
and on a random tangent, how the hell can those birds that aren't much larger than a gnome hit me for so much damage? it's kinda humbling to have to say "yeah, i just got owned by a bird that's smaller than a rat." R. Sablerose

Personally if i had it my way it go down like this...
-Human should get Wolves...Mans best friend and all.
-Barbarians should have gotten Cougars.
-Vah Shir's should have gotten Rockhoppers.
-Halflings should get Wasp...Bixies woulsnt work as they are semi-intelligent.
-High Elves should get Emerald Drakes...I think its fitting.
-Half Elves should get Rats...cause thats what they are
-Gnomes should get Minotaurs...no doubt about it.
-Dark Elves should Spiders..I think we all agree on that one.
-Frogloks should get Mosquitos...They are pets in Gukta as we know.
-Erudite should get a Snake of some sort.
-Dwarves should get a bear...kinda fits their personality.
-Ogres should get maybe a Basilisk or scorpian...kinda running out of ideas heh.
-Trolls and Iksars keep their pets cause they are already cool.

What the heck does everyone have against Half Elves? It's obvious they're superior, having the best qualities of two inferior races combined. They should definately have a Manticore or some type creature, since they are bastard half-breeds by nature, it is only fitting they should have a bastard pet. (No, not a mule)
Edit: Changed a bit to sound more sarcastic rather than indignant. However, I still see nothing wrong with half-elf, and would pick one over an annoying football gnome anyday. Edited by: Kaielen at: 8/18/03 9:01 am
08-25-03, 09:53 PM
There's no reason Dark Elves should get spiders. They don't worship the Spider Queen on Norrath, they worship the Prince of Hate. Give them Siamese Cats...those are hateful little things too. Caffron, Wizard of <Sanctus Lumen>, the Good team PK guild.

High Elves = Fairies
Erudites = Wisps (perfect fit)
Half-Elves = Lions

Halflings = Bixies
Wood Elves = Treant

Ok, lets assume that the races cannot have intelligent species as their pets. After all, they are beastlords.
Dark Elves = Spiders
Humans = Ravens
Frogloks = Mosquitos
Gnomes = Clockwork Spiders
High Elves = Small Drakes
Erudites = Panthers

well, being a dark elf myself .. I think that snow bunny would be the best choice. What would be better than a gigantic now bunny warder at level 65? that's right.. nothing
I guess if we had to have spiders, I would rather have the purple/black ones like in plane of nightnmare instead of the red/black ones.
10-02-03, 02:12 PM
If the gnomes can have clockwork spiders, then I see no reason why the Erudites can't have golems.
Think about it. The Erudites are a group given to little interaction with mother nature (and who can blame them with Toxulia next door), but very skilled in magic. Instead of summoning an animal friend, they'd magically enchant one.
So you can keep your silly little kodiak. I'll take a black reaver for my pet.

Wood elves = ravens
As a druid I've charmed the Blood ravens in PoN before, and they make neat pets, both for fighting ability and just coolness factor. Shrink em down and they look like hummingbirds!
10-12-03, 04:30 PM
Erudites should get seagulls or something like that...we are the oceangoing race and Prexus is as close to a nature god as we get...sharks would be better but, or dolphins, but you really need something that can go on land. Caffron, Wizard of <Sanctus Lumen>, the Good team PK guild.

Ok I put a little thought into this. I think most of us were thinking too much inside the box (ie all creatures that already exist in the game), but I dont recall seeing the Tiger Model or the Dino model prior to the addition of BLs. So some of my suggestions do include some opptions that don't yet exist (this is a "what if" thread after all).
First the ones in game:
Barb = Wolf
Vah Shir = Tiger
Ogre = Bear
Iksar = Dinosaur
Troll = Gator
Now the new races:
Dark Elf = Spider (but it changes the color and markings as it gains level)
High Elf = Unicorn (Too wild to ride, but a great companion, and is a rogue class (stabby horn) at higher level)
Wood Elf = Bird of Prey (ie halk, eagle) after all they live in trees and imagine pathing of having a walking pet follow you with out falling.
Half Elf = Griffon (Half breed pet for half breeds, and since they can start in Kelithin, they would need a flying pet as well)
Froglok = Salamandar (Iksars get a lizard like pet, Frogloks get amphibian pet)
Halfling = Firebeetle (some one mentioned Ember, and the Giant Firebeetles would be cool at high levels)
Human = Snake (not a lot of options left for them, but a huge rattle Snake with menacing rattle sound would be cool)
Gnome = Clock Work Warder (Tinkerers - nuff said)
Dwarf = Bat (plenty of bats in BB, and bats are cave dwellers and so are drwaves)
Erudite = Will-o-Wisp (Erudites are powerful in magic, and should have magical pet from the start, and they are night blind and have a crappy newbie zone, so the pet could act as a light source to compensate.) Zyndor Fyrmane

the iksar pet is a scaled wolf, they are AAAAALL over FoB and have been since kunark came out. the tigre model also made it's first apearance in kunark. the enraging tiger in emerald jungled, but no one really goes to EJ much.
i remember when luclin came out, i was reading the character info for beastlords, it mentioned that the pets generally were creatures taken from the newbie zone of the BL's home town. vah shir, i guess, would be the exception, altho they use tigers to guard their palace /shrug
There are tigers all over Kerra Isle and always have been. There's a couple others scattered around in places like the Ak'anon zoo, long before Kunark.
12-10-03, 02:31 PM
come to think of it, the tiger model is probably just a puma/cougar model with a different texture and some added bits.

Most of this stolen from other posts ...
Barbarian = Wolf
Vah Shir = Tiger
Ogre = Bear
Iksar = Raptor
Troll = Alligator
Froglok = Myconid or Mushroom
Dark Elf = Spider
High Elf/Wood Elf = Small Drake or Hatchling
Halfling = Wasps
Human/Half-Elf = Raven or Lion
Gnome = Clock Work Warder
Dwarf = Boar or Underbulk
Erudite = Will-o-Wisp
