Hi everyone, this is my first post on the summoner forums so please be kind ^^; lol
So I am a pearlsack holder of a pet linkshell on Ifrit and we are trying to find more smn who would be interested in joining and I was wondering, what would make you want to join a pet linkshell? I am asking because I have really only started playing smn myself so my personal smn knowledge is sadly quite limited for the moment anyway so I figured best place to see what smn would expect from a pet linkshell would be here!

We are currently doing things like helping with all different missions, NMs that people need that we can gather enough people for, prime fights, some farming in La Vaule and then the regular stuff linkshells do like helping with LBs/AF. The more members we get, the more things we can do so hopefully in future we will be doing much bigger events. So what do you think we could offer smns to get them excited about joining a pet shell? Any ideas big or small would be much appreciated as we welcome any level pet job so not just limited to high level stuff =)

I guess those waking the beast fights could be top SMN activities. You get to utilize avatar elemental properties and have fun with avatars. Else I can only think of campaign where you are allowed to use those much rarer skills like melee or spirits.

Actually, spirits are fun to use for the avatar fight. A friend and I duo'd Leviathan and all we did was melee and let the spirits tank using siphon and spirit taker every chance we got. It was quite fun to do.

But that's neither here nor there. Most summoners would be glad to join, especially if they get to utilize their pets more often. Like at Xolotl or Hakutaku, but that can get a bit iffy as the fights progress. One would have to appeal to mercenary or good gear NMs for summoners to join. Like AF fights, ZNMs, or things along those lines.

Edit: Spelling and grammar.

Thanks for the replies guys! The smns would definately get to use their pets more often thats for sure. The majority of things we do, the strategies for them involve the bsts making our pets take our damage for us so we shouldnt need cures much if at all so smns would be free to go nuts with pets :p

So far what we could offer at the moment is: Yinyang Robe NM, Prime Fights, AF, LBs, Xolotl and lower ZNMs (plus missions etc). We do Hakutaku runs as our members need and occasionaly do ZNMs- mostly just ones that bst can duo at the moment because not many people seem up for trying more sadly but hoping that will change once they see the fun you can have there as well as the gil you can make on drops!

Appart from those is there anything else you guys can think of that smn like to do? Any other gear smns really would like from NMs we could help you get or missions that we could try that would be fun?

In my opinion, using avatars more doesn't always mean having more fun. It depends on what you are using them for. Predator claw spam is right up there in most boring activity with main healing. Though at least you can look for those spike damage hits.

That is why I think the best way to attract Summoner's is to find activities where you get to use the less common things. One of those would be wards... though I doubt any pet LS would ever find a way to use wards efficiently. (SE thinks avatars giving other avatars ice spikes is overpowered)
