The Question

Eleanor: “What are your thoughts on Consumable pet buffs as an idea for future expansions? For example, imagine a new type of item that has a random drop chance, even more rare than a Stone, but it grants a buff, such as +10% speed for 30 minutes only on the pet it is cast on. It could add a new level of complexity to pet battles, and cause us to reevaluate existing strategies.”
