Wow I didn't know Manders were REALLY rare. There is a lot of conflict and policies people expect you to follow. They say fight Prince Maru Nirini ( What ever his name is) and he will drop a pet. But they didn't say this: you gotta fight him about 20 times. I recommend to fight easier bosses, that have the most chance of getting a mander. Have you ever seen those Minotaur pets? Somebody said that you get it when you battle a boss in the Life tree in Wizard City. Is this true?
I don't know if they all drop the same color, but Mandy Zaptongue dropped as orange for me and I have the option to change it to green at the paint shop in Wizard City.
Yeah, this is what I thought too, but recently I noticed that I can't change my Mandy Zaptounge's color anymore to green. What happened?
They're changing things around ... again! Get use to them, since I personally doubt they'll listen to player complaints concerning colors. I've growled about how unfairly their color-pricings treat genders, since boys get a price break over girls in the Shops; but I haven't heard even a whisper of agreement among other players, let alone acknowledgement of the problem from KingIsle. I even have ScreenShots showing the problem; but nobody is interested
Enjoy it however you can .... I'm trying ...
