"?" in Pets table

Hi there Cordarion the Grey!

Thanks for all the fixes to Pets! Reordering the columns was a particularly good idea.

I was wondering if those ?s were an accidental side-effect of your regex, or if they are intentional? It does appear like they have a pattern that may be related to level; if this is the case (i.e., if certain pet features are unavailable below certain taming levels), could you add that information explicitly to the descriptions of the features at the top of the § List of pets? Idealy, with reference! (even if that reference is not in English!)

Alternatively, if you just give me the reference I'll happily make the changes, or if those ? are accidental, that's also fine. -- Djonni (talk) 16:03, 31 October 2020 (UTC)

Hello. Those question marks are intentional. I’m afraid I cannot provide a more authoritative reference than the table itself: I just looked on it and noticed that the first pets with riding, dungeon, and sailing abilities can be tamed at 25th, 60th, and 80th levels, respectively, so I assumed that lower-level pets cannot have those abilities.

Why did I put them, in the first place? In reality, there are 6 pets’ features: healing, combat, looting, riding, dungeon, and sailing, and every pet has at least one of them. For example, I can tell you about my pets: Rocky Raccoon is healing and Hyper Lynx is combat. I’m totally sure that each dungeon and sailing pet has another ability that is not related to duel-mode adventures (i.e., healing/combat/looting/riding) so it is able to level-up if its owner does not spelunk/sail. So, if we know that a Lava Lamb is looting, we cannot exclude the possibility that it might be sailing, too. You can examine the pet table in the Russian Godwiki to check my words.

By the way, I’m surprised that no pet is marked as riding+dungeon or riding+sailing so far. While it’s possible that there are no pets with such combination of features in Godville, perhaps, their owners just did not pay enough attention to them when they are accompanying their masters on the world map?
