    Dropping a quick idea of making "scrolls of transcendence" and "scrolls of alacrities" consumable by pets. Looking for some thoughts and ideas.

    Why yes and why not?

    This should be a thing, drag it onto the pet like a piece of food. Most people have piles of unused alacrity and sot scrolls as most of their chars are already skilled up. This would be a good way to get rid of them

    I am fine with SoTs, but there is already the taming mastery ability Whispering which gives your pet better gains. So I dont see a need for SoAs for pets.

    And why is this a problem? How many scrolls you want to be able to use without a cooldown? This could make a pet training way too easy.

    Just my 2 cents!

    Sorry I don't think either should be done, especially since some players have tons and tons of each saved up.
    I have played more in the last 3 weeks than I have in years doing pet training.
    I really enjoy it and can see the benefits of my work. Every one wants to either nerf or make this game easier and easier.
    It is one of the reasons I mainly play Siege, resources are very limited there.

    Would just turn very quickly into the same situation as we have now with the Power scrolls.
    Massively over inflated prices so only a chosen few can afford to buy them.

    Not a good idea in my mind, the only way they will go with this is by adding "pet" versions to the cash shop.
