[dev1024] Beastmasters can now call two new familiars with the Call Beast ability.

Was this in the test server? Haven't heard this before, but I can't wait to play with it.

yeah they were both on the test server, and have been tried out. That slug is very water resistant, also two tp moves one lowers max HP by 10%, other lowers def and attack by 33%.

I can't wait to try them out myself, but that slug sounds badass.

I just read this on the main forum. It sounds too good to be true. Will somebody who is playing this afternoon please explain? I'm at work for a few more hours.

I almost shat a brick.

For a minute there, I thought you meant they had allowed for us to call 2 pets at once, like some of the campaign battle Bst NPCs do.

I initially thought that when I read the main thread. Only after re-reading did I notice that it's only two new jugs (which we knew about) being introduced this update. Nonetheless, good update for the BSTs. Can't wait to try some of the NMs with beefed up level 95 pets.

Didn't mean to do that to anyone! I need to be more careful with post titles!

Looks like Slug is synergy only sadly, unless the recipe is different from the synergy to crafting one :/

That sucks. I didn't level cooking for a long time, only to finally bite the bullet and do it. If I have to level synergy I'm not going to be happy.

oh god, didn't notice they were synergy recipes... sigh... and I was so excited cause it looked like the slug jugs might be reasonably inexpensive. Probably not if they are synergy onry

Looks like you need 78+ Cooking, and we could almost make them with someone with 36 Synergy skill.

I crafted some with extreme difficulty at clothcraft Cooking 70, lots of breaks, only managed to walk away with 2 successful synthesis (8 jugs). So you do not need synergy though it is probably better.

San d'Orian Flour, Imperial Flour, Coriander, Distilled Water is the listed in the update notes. Thought for the clothcraft it may be different?

Says 78+ Cooking if you are attempting to Synergy it (adapt)

Slug is very resistant to water and earth at least. Just had a doom mage cast flood on it and it only did 35 dmg

well did some more testing this time vs the sea monk NM in vunkerl abyssea. The one that casts waterja, ga IV, and water V. Along with the TP move malestorm.

the worst I saw it take I think was 300 from a malestorm, but most of the spells and malestorms did well under 100 damage to the slug. Was able to solo it with just thepet on it and using 1 healing slave.
