Spritely, Why the Other Pet Cast it More?
I'm not sure if I put it on right forum... Anyways my question is:

If Both pets have Spritely, why the opponent Pet keeps casting spritely while my pet only might it cast once?

I was doing PvP and the opponent's Pet cast spritely four times on one round... And my pet only cast it once for that round....

So does that mean his pet is better even though have the same pedigree, or is it means the other person was using something to make his pet heal more? I just don't know, anyone think whats going on?

It's random. Sometimes my pets with spritely will cast it like three times in a row, then go for three battles without doing it once. There's no logic to it, and nothing you can do to make it happen more often. Sometimes I notice that they seem to cast spritely more often after an AoE attack, like Storm Lord or Scarecrow. Then again, that may just be a coincidence....basically, I think it's just chance.

I've seen spritely activate frequently on wand attacks :/ Although it could be just coincidence as you put it.

Most people don't know this and many people that ThinK they know everything there is to know about pets, will deny this, however:

May cast abilities have a % chance of working or not.

To increase that pets % chance, you have to increase the max stats of:

Agility
Will
Power

As all talents, there is a formula that gives a percentage. The higher your pecentage, the more chance the pet has at casting a talent...

I hope this makes sense for you, because these are the facts... Yes, there are triggers, however, the higher % chance you have, the more your pet might cast that spell... If your stats are low in any of these categories, the less of a chance your pet will have to cast that talent!

A pet being maxed out is fine and dandy, but the question is, what are the max stats?

You can have a pet, with maxed stats, but if the stats are too low, you can have an 8 resistance, some pets, get 9 resistance, and even others have a 10 resistance, depending on how high those maxed stats are...

Do you see the difference? 8,9,or 10? Same goes for may cast spells, you can have like an 8, 9, or 10% chance of spritely being triggered everytime, based on the max limit of agility, will, and power...

As many other people have said: It's simply chance. I know from experience; on some days, my fierce hound will cast Spritely maybe once throughout an entire dungeon. On other days, however, it seems to cast Spritely every other turn throughout the day.

A fierce hound does not have bad maximum stats, it is what?

250 max agility
240 max will
200 max power

the only thing that is needed to make this pet cast spritely a lot more, is power...

Take a look at the stats of a Sea Dragon, most know that this pet casts spritely more often than others...

250 max agility
225 max will
250 max power

now, the only thing that can help a sea dragon, is more will...

Yes, these stats do effect the % chance the spell will cast...

getting these stats all to 250, you will have a pet that will always cast may cast talents more than any other pet...
