One of the biggest drawbacks of pets right now is that valuable gear is permanently lost when the pet dies. Obviously, this is desirable in terms of making you choose wisely in equipping your pet, but it can also back you into a corner if your well-tuned solo pet is forced to go on some progression raiding with a high likelihood of dying. To help with this, pet classes (MAG, NEC, ENC, BST, DRU, SHM) now have available a new AA called "Suspended Animation". This skill whisks your pet off to a safe space where it will remain, fully equipped and buffed, until recalled using the companion "Pet Revival" skill (which is free once you have attained at least one rank of Suspended Animation). The cost for the initial rank is 50 AAs, which allows you to suspend your pet up to 5 times. Additional ranks will raise this limit to 10 and 20. After reaching this limit, that particular pet can no longer be suspended. As part of this change, we have also made all newly-dropped Blades of the Prime Animator NO RENT. Existing blades will not change, however. The weapons are otherwise identical. There are some restrictions on the AA: You cannot suspend/recall a pet while in combat 10 minute cooldown on each skill Only "normal" (non-charm/swarm pets) can be suspended If your pet is wielding a particularly strong weapon (for now, this is just Animation blades), you will not be able to suspend your pet with those weapons on it This should help pet classes enjoy their well-equipped pets for longer, and not have to worry about sacrificing them at times when their expected survivability is low.
