FairyLand 2 Online (Part Four)

Pets are an indispensable part of fighting in FairyLand 2 Online. By simply knowing what sort of pet to capture and how to use them, it will make your fights that much easier even when against a bucketload of enemies. As such, I will do my best to convey to you as much of what I know about them as possible.

Capturing a Pet

FairyLand 2 Online - Seal StoneFairyLand 2 Online - Capturing a Pet
With regards to the capturing of a pet, it is a pretty simple mechanism actually. The fundamental logic is to essentially weaken the target monster first and then use a "Seal Stone" to capture it. The higher your level is compared to the target monster's, the less HP it has left and the usage of a higher level seal stone will all contribute to increasing the rate of success in capturing the monster (from what I can deduce).

And while it may not be necessary to explain the capturing process (which is just select seal stone to use and click on target monster), I do wish to go on a little further regarding the seal stones.

Apart from this (which are all visible in the seal stones' descriptions), I have also come across some information that states that the level of seal stone used to capture a monster would have a vital effect upon its stats (growth rate) as a pet. But since I have yet to see any conclusive evidence that affirms to this info, you might have to take it with a pinch of salt.

Anyway, so long as you use the right seal stones upon the appropriate level of monsters, the seal stone wouldn't be "wasted" (in a sense) and thus whether this information is valid or not wouldn't matter much.

Finally, do not be afraid to use the seal stones as they will only be consumed upon a successful capture. In fact, I would pretty much encourage you to just go ahead and try to capture any and all monsters that catches your eye (though you must realize that there may be some monsters out there which are simply not programmed to be capturable).

Once successful, the captured monster will be found in the form of a pet statue in your inventory. All you have to do then is to right click to unseal it and make it your pet.

Pet Element
FairyLand 2 Online - Sesame MouseFairyLand 2 Online - Potato Rat
In FairyLand 2, each monster found in the game has to be associated with a certain element. And as far as this goes, the element that the monster is associated with is largely dependent upon its "Variety" rather than its "Specie". For instance, a "Sesame Mouse" is of the "Dark" element while a "Potato Rat" is of the "Earth" element but both of them are of the "Mouse" specie.

Anyway, according to what I've learnt, there are a total of eight types of element in the game.

Pet Stats
The screenshot below shows the stats of a typical pet that you may have obtained or caught during your journey in the game.
FairyLand 2 Online - Pet Stats
If you take a look at the "Pet Status" window, you should see a couple of interesting figures. Basically, these numbers represent how fast the stats of the pet would grow when leveled.

For example, with a growth value of 2.0 for its "Str", "Con", "Int", "Spi" and "Dex", the corresponding stats of this bunny actually increases by a value of 2 points per increase in level so by the time this bunny reaches level 11, it will have 30 Str, 29 Con, 29 Int, 29 Spi and 29 Dex.

As for the "Max HP" and "Max MP" growth rates, these are calculated with a slight discrepancy. With the same values of 2.0, the bunny actually gets a Max HP increase of 10 points per level while its Max MP only increases by 2 points per level. So this roughly translates to a ratio of 5 : 1 (Max HP vs Growth Rate) and 1 : 1 (Max MP vs Growth Rate).

While nice to know, I would need to once again state that the growth rates of a pet is random (though it is known to be within the range of 1 - 8). There is no way of knowing what sort of values it would have unless and until you capture it. However, what is certain is that each variety of monster should have a fixed range of growth rates (to generate from) for each of its specific stats. Furthermore, this range would most likely be modified by the element of the monster as well as the level of seal stone used in capturing it.

Pet Skills
Now just like how the growth rates and stats of a pet may differ, the same logic is actually applied to the skills that they come with as well.

If you grab a bunch of level 1 seal stones, head out into the fields and capture 5 to 10 monsters of the same specie and variety, I am certain that you will find that some of the ones you have caught would have only one skill while some would have two. If you increase the numbers to 20 or more, then no doubt you will start to find some having as many as three skills (if your lucky).

But as far as these skills are concerned, the first skill would have to be a "default" skill that is known by any and all monsters of the same specie and variety. Only subsequent skills that the captured pet may know will be different. But even then, these skills do appear to be pulled (at random) from a "collective common pool" and thus you may find different species and varieties of pets (that you've caught) having the same subsequent skills.

Anyway, that was just a simple example to show you the randomness in the skills of a pet that you catch but isn't of too much importance because any pets that you find lacking in skills may simply be supplemented by pet skill books (which can be obtained from monster loots, via pet exploration missions or simply purchased from the Item Mall for the rarer ones).
