I had gotten used to buying a little acceleration buff from a stable when going on a melee hunt. It seemed like the most reasonable offer, since I don't need it all the time. But none of the three stables on Arkadia sells any acceleration buffs anymore. In fact, two out of three sell nothing at all anymore. The last one has some leftover pet & taming booster nobody seems to need. We've gotten ourselves into the pet thing again after MA's multi-year hiatus until the new system was done, some are more excited than others about it but it has become a part of the game now. Let's for a moment not talk about how they've gone completely off the rails with their making it rain cats and dogs, literally, and all the other stuff which simply doesn't fit into this universe. What I want to know is, what the hell happened that the business is completely dead so shortly after it has been introduced? I've been told in chat that it's all the strongbox stuff, pills and rings and whatnot, that rendered the pet idea pretty much obsolete. Surely stable owners have invested quite a bit of money and must feel royally screwed, if this is true. Does somebody have more insight, is there any future at all for this or shall I stuff my pets in the juicer and sell any leftover nutrio before everything becomes worth zero?
