I like a lot of these ideas. Pets definitely are being under utilized, as it is now, with so many cheaper options for similar effects.

Pets that can pickup fruit & stones This is cool. But may affect the market and one of the only revenues for new players as it would be the wealthier players being able to support such a pet and able to gather mass amounts.
...
I don't think so because the pet is consuming energy all the time, it might increase the total available amount of fruits on the market overal but the added amount came at a price in the form of energy per hour for the pet that collected it. So you're taking something that is completely free (fruits and stones) and giving players the ability to pay a little bit to get a little bit more of it.

It's the perfect loop. A pet that collects fruit which is necessary to feed it :)

You left out the most important feature for me: turn off the bloody sounds.

And the winner is... (drumroll) Pets you can mount and ride!

I just noticed recently that the log in screen when you are on Ark shows an avatar on a big animal with a saddle. I wonder how long ago this image was released and if Ark dev team has made any statements regarding such things as future pet mounts being in the works...

It may look counterintuitive but this is not an avatar riding an animal, but a single mob called Oratan Lancer. It's been there for a long time and features prominently in events, you never been there?

I would like to see battle pets! real battle pets that fighting with you against mobs! There isn't new. Exist in other MMO's. Buff pet it's ok but it's lazy programming.

Oh ok, my bad. I've been on Ark a few times but only to trade, not to hunt or mine.

i like any development that brings the focus towards team play rather than solo. So buffs which aid the entire team would be good.

I think picking up stones and fruit could also be a good feature.

damn! didn't realize it was multiple choice!!! but I do like the team buffs idea. infact any pet buffs should apply to you and team if in one.. currently auto loot works in this way technically and is always very nice to have in groups :)

YES!!!

They could make a pet extractor tool you can attach to the pet. When you now get a claim, you can setup the pet, that it automaticaly go for extract your claims. If the pet is outside of radar, it still continue extracting, and the pet return to your position. The resources are then into the pet, and if the pet is back in storage, you can move the resources to your inventory.

If you be in lootable pvp, the pet can be killed, and all stuffs go to the hunter. also if the pet owner get killed, stored pet inventorys give all stuffs to the hunter, if they are into the players inventory. If the pet is spawned, it needs to be killed also, to get the stuffs. Into pvp, pets are not visible at radar.


Now, in same matter, the pet could get a attacking tool attached, like a weapon basicaly work. But if you spawn a such pet, it will also help to attack the current mob you be attacking.

Also it could be a heal tool, and the pet start to heal you, if you get damage. (I know, healers hate me now :) )
