Proposal
Allow trading of pets with the following limitations:
- Revert pets back to level 1, or revert their loyalty back to wild, or both
- If we think players will abuse this in some way, maybe at least allow pets to be "No Trade Shared" to swap between your own characters
Justification
Pokemon!
Motivation
I tried out CH on my main character to see how I liked it. I invested a lot of credits in 60pt pets to compare to other builds. I like CH for pve but not pvp so I dropped it on my main but would like to pick it up on my second character. However, all of the credits I invested into purchasing pets is now wasted and they just sit in my creature container 😿
Gotta catch em all!

BE pets are expensive, but that high price is based on the fact they don’t deteriorate over time like armor and weapons do.
If pet trading does come in, pets will need to have some form of condition decline similarly to armor and weapons.

I know this is an old thread, but I like the idea of going to a beast master and having the pet reverted back to a 1 level then allowing that to be traded amongst characters in a same account.

What happened to the transfer ability and non-CH pets? Why isn't that a thing in CU era?

The reason to buy pets is already hurt by the fact that they never Die. Limiting further purchases at this time doesn't make sense imo.

Other than fancy mutations it doesn't really take long to get 1-1.5m to buy a pet. IJM NPC missions are 24k x 2 = 48k. You only have to do 20 trips of 2 missions to make 1m. If you spin NPC missions with a couple of friends you will make 1m in an hour.

NoTradeShared would make sense to me.

Yes, pets never die. So do droids.
A 60pt pet is 1.5-2mil? A SBD is not even 50k.
People still buy multiple pets becaus of different style, look, skills,... or just mutations because they want to.
I've never seen anyone buying another SBD becaus they wanted a black and a green one...

Some people spent millions in Mutations. I'm talking hundreds of millions, not 2, 3, or 5 and then loosing all those pets because it's the only character that incites is painfull.
At least give them a chance to reroll another character to CH and transfer the pets. Reset loyalty or something, but let the pets be usefull in any sense.
