NONE OF THIS PETS WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR OLYMPIADS.
Mass cubics effect greatly decreased on higher lvls of the skill.
thoughts behind this changes:
This changes will be made in other to make summoners and this pets still have a big impact in a lower lvl party and helping the lower levels evolve keeping some utility but not affecting the high lvl game play.
Cubics. Mass cubics might be a bit unfair in the higher levels pvp atm but they still have their usefulness on pve, there for the effectiveness of this cubics was decreased as the level increases. Meaning parties will still be able to use it while they progress on their hard lvling mission but their impact on the higher lvl pvp scenarium will be negated by their lack of effectiveness
Buffs. It was noticed some parties started replacing the active buff classes with the summon buffs (mostly pony), there for the effect of this buffs was decreased. This way the summoner still keeps the friendly buff to give away in a lower lvl not so perfect party or for solo proposes but it will not have impact so big on high lvls and it will not replace classes such as Elven Elders or Shilien Elders in a higher lvl party.
Cleanse skills. Not much to explain here. pets cleaning all curses had to be removed so this skill was turned into what it used to be in older chronicles. pony has a chance of removing bleeds and poisons while cat have chance of removing phisical attack/attack speed imparing debuffs.
Removal of gifts and Blessings. tho the reuse buff of the pony is not so much noticeable on instant cast skills like normal nukes or heals, the impact grows with the longer CD of skills such as vortex and balance life etc, with the runes coming out for more cast speed this skill have to be removed in order to keep some balance the same it was added before in order to keep some balance. As for the cat, Crit chance is caped and it wont be too hard to hit with some runes and skills tho crit power is not caped, there for to avoid insane damage output on certain skills/hits, this skill had to be removed.
overall: This pets will still stay in game. they will be useful in lower lvls helping groups progressing with their smaller support but this changes added before to keep them useful will start fading in the higher lvls as they transgress from a more supportive role to a more offensive role.
