Summonable Penguins

Recommended Posts

Pretty self-explanatory title but it would be "cool" to have summonable penguins.

 

The big 5 level gaps in lower-level summoning between red snake, brown snake and fox could be bridged by this fairly low-level creature (i appreciate penguin is slightly stronger than snakes or foxes), making leveling in summoning more varied for the beginner. The strongest perhaps could fit in between gargoyle and bear.

 

an example recipe could be similar to boar, with different amounts of raw meat/bones depending on size of penguin (chinstrap,gentoo and king).

 

why penguins? well apart from the fact i think they look good:

 

> It would be awesome to summon the Linux mascot! :rolleyes:

> They are a low level creature and starting in summoning has some fairly big jumps which they could easily fill.

I agree that summonable penguins would be cool.

 

I think down by fox is too low though. Maybe a run of the 3 penguins in between wolf and puma would work better. If all 3 types are thought of as too much, maybe we could have just 1 kind be summonable too.

 

Suggested recipes -

Gentoo - 2 LEs, 4 bone, 4 meat

King - 3 LEs, 4 bone, 4 meat

Chinstrap - 3 LEs 4 bone, 5 meat

More summons, more monsters, more equipment is always good :rolleyes:

I think developers are working on it, but not a bad suggestion anyway, I like :)

Summoning a little Tux would rule. Idea sounds good to me!

I can't resist a me too here though it would be sad to see them poof or get attacked by some passer-by. On the up side for taking things out of the game, I'd use more essences healing them for as long as possible...

Whilst yes it would be great - would anyone ever actually summon a penguin?

 

The answer of course is no - apart from a single one to prove that you can!

(unless they have a special property like bear/white tiger)

I think you'll find that all those Lnux-maniacs will take up summoning overnight just to reach penguin levels! :(

Maybe they could give you "Happy Feet" (ICD perk for 15 sec's) :(

I thought they could perhaps be useful for leveling before you are able to spam bear stones, without making summoning too simple. There is the Linux reference which also adds to the penguins attraction.

 

(just to stop any accusations: I have reached level 30 so this is not a case of trying to make the game easier for myself)

 

If a special ability is desired, the most appropriate one would be "freeze" (like spider paralysis) though this could be controversial (perhaps overpowering them) and I would be happy with the normal penguin.

 

p.s. not sure how to add data to quotes (e.g. @ conavar) if anyone could show me, i will add to the post.

I certainly would. On the PK server, I like to train one of my alts through summons, and penguins would be great exp for both characters.

Cats first please, leopards, black panthers etc... They've been in game much longer and some of those items (Black Panther fur) have no uses!
