Camelot Unchained’s Mark Jacobs has posted a Thursday afternoon update that’s basically required reading if you’re a fan of the fantasy RvR title. He talks about a whole bunch of stuff including last week’s successful 24-hour alpha test and the recent announcement of the spirit pet stretch goal.
Jacobs mentions some curious new gameplay wherein the player sets up a series of portals that a pet must move through in order to attack its target. He also touches on more traditional pet roles like turrets, crafting assistants, etc. There’s even a blurb about pets who do everything from serving as scouts and messengers to spreaders of disease and darkness![Source: Thursday update]
