How often must tamers feed pets?

Bonded Pet Update

  • Bonded pets can no longer go wild and will no longer respond to commands from their owner until the pet owner feeds the pet
With the new patch it seems pets won't obey unless fed, how often must pets be fed to keep them obeying commands?

    Looks like they are actually working on some long term buggy bugs (ghost mobs in the EC was first reported on Stratics in like 2013 or something).

    Ghost Mobs in the EC
    Pets disappearing
    Velocity removing slayer effect
    Resilience not working correctly

    Some of those have been around for years and years.

    Hopefully the fixes actually work - and don't break anything new...

    Publish 111 – Ultima Online (uo.com)

    Same place as Larisa and Riner I'd guess...

    Says the page was published on Sept. 1st by the UO Dev Team...

    Did someone publish early without telling the wiki keeper? *Giggles*

    :) as a general rule I get to read the publish notes at the same time as everyone else, when they go on the front page.

    yes, a guild mate told us last night that the main page was down.
    And that is why I checked this morning to see if the Publish notes was available.
    I figured they were adding it to the wiki and they did.
    And I shared the link to several Discord groups and to stratics.

    Keep an eye on UO.com for the full Publish 111 release notes.
    (this was in the news last week, I was just following the DEVs advice
    by sharing the notes)

    @Riner for me, it depends on the pet, how often I feed it.
    I feed my giant beetle constantly (i carry my harvester blade,
    so I feed it any meat that i get, so I don't get heavy)

    and my CU, i carry fruit
    I give it one fruit after any huge battle.
    the more powerful the foe, the quicker I feed it

    I have always fed my pets at the first sign of a refusal bark, and don't give another command till I have. So far that has always worked for me and I've never had my tamer's pet go wild on her. 

    However as regards the publish notes, I would imagine the complete refusal to obey will come at a low level, close to that at which it currently goes wild.
    I would appreciate a more in depth description of this change. @kyronix pretty please?

    This might be a crazy question/idea but i AssuMe there's some testing that happens before we even get the publish for testing??

    I have never ever fed my pet, what am I doing wrong? :)

    Just giving commands seems to keep him green and fully happy always?

    I find that the more slots a pet takes up the more often you need to feed it.  My 1 slot pack animals can go over a week before feeding.  My 4 slot hiryu I need to feed at least once a day.
  • CookieCookie Posts: 905

    Mine is a 5 slot fully trained Cu, had him since the pet publish.

    I've never fed him since then, sometimes he goes blue if I leave him too long, but I just give him a command he goes green, fully happy, I have lore, I keep an eye out always, just it never changes?

    Just noticed new spawning spot for Cu!!

    Constantly spamming pet commands is the fastest way to get a pet to go wild or walking off and leaving it.  Listen to your pet it will tell you when you messed up and an all guard me works wonders.
