    Companions for Gold Idea

    So I've been brainstorming just how getting companions for gold can work. Here are my ideas:

    -They don't have to be completely new models or anything, in fact, I'd think it's be better if they were just a reused one (ex. Cat Thug), but is not currently available as a companion.
    -These companions are being bought for gold, they should have no more than 2 promotions, and when promoted they only get one epic.
    -It is fast to get maxed on gold, I know that. What I've thought of is that you can buy companions over time. For example, one can be 4 payments of 250k gold or something like that, depending on their usefulness.

    Some companions that can be bought for a certain amount of gold could be:
    -Troggy Hunter
    -Crab Crossbowman
    -Flying Fish
    -Wharf Rat Squirt
    -Radical Hound/Tom/Fox


    What do you guys think?

    I like the idea, but I'd prefer a gold limit increase lol.

    Re: Companions for Gold Idea

    I like the idea, since I believe in having a large and varied crew. However, I know that there are many pirates out there who would never purchase a "lame" companion for gold, unless they wanted it as a housing decoration.

    Re: Companions for Gold Idea

    I can see the infomercials now - get YOUR very own goat companion for four easy payments of 250,000 gold!!

    I wouldn't mind seeing companions for just 250,000 or something rather than an excess amount, but maybe they're like factions in Wizard101 where you earn certain badges to unlock them.

    Then just comes the matter of should they be purely cosmetic and not really viable in PvE/PvP, or should they actually be good?

    OH, this is not a bad idea. I can imagine our pirates heading to a house in Skull Island to discuss and negotiate several companions quitting from other factions, then taking them on our crew! We may get new ones with recycled and future content, one day each of us might have dozens of them...

    When that times comes, I see Captain Avery sending his bird pet to the Handler in charge of the recruiting management... with a brief but self-explanatory message:

    "Execute Order 66!"

    And thus, I guess Avery can begin expanding his plans to conquer the Spiral with a military Crown market...

    They should be good, but not as good as, say, the Beastmasters. They're being purchased for gold, not crowns, so they should be a bit less powered then those bought with crowns, but not so weak that they're useless.

    Re: Companions for Gold Idea

    you could make it a purchase of scrip and gold, and add in the faction vendor price so they can come really close to the same quality of our regular companions.
