Update 34 (Part 2: Electric Boogaloo) – New pet system, dungeon, religion and much more
Posted on October 9th, 2018 09:01 AM EST
This update includes several code changes from the previously deployed version. Depending on these changes, some mods built with the previous dev kit may or may not work as intended. Mods are less likely to break as they did in the [last patch](https://forums.funcom.com/t/pc-update-34-04-10-2018-the-midnight-grove-and-jhebbal-sag-religion/38589) as this is a smaller update, and a new dev kit will be rolled out as quickly as we can after the patch is release.
- New pet taming system
- Fixed 2 critical server crashes reported by the community
- The north-western corner of the Frozen North is accessible again!
From today on forward you will be able to tame and raise your very own pet(s). Explore the Exiled Lands with your trusty companion by your side or build a farm to have them produce materials for you.
You will want to start your career as a Beastmaster by building an animal pen for your new future friends. These shelters come in three different tiers and have 5 available pens to hold your animals.
Following this, you will need to obtain a baby or an egg. These can be found in the world, and on certain (rare) vendors so keep your eyes open while you travel! You’ll be able to place your baby pet version into the pen and have them grow into an adult and trusty companion over time.
However, don’t forget to feed and treat them well or you might just end up with a carcass!
While you have a baby animal in your pen, the type of food you offer it will influence your chances to have your baby grow into a greater pet version: A rarer, more powerful and special looking variation.
The new pet system will also introduce the mechanic of thrall feeding. Special Feed boxes and Thrall Pots are available for easier, automatic food distribution to several pets or thralls for those of you who are planning for bigger armies of two and four legged friends.
While keeping your pets happy and fed they will eat any type of food that they can digest. However, feeding them their favorite snacks will grant them temporary buffs.
Very conveniently, live animals will also produce dung, which is used to create compost for your planters.
Even in the sad and unfortunate event of your pet's untimely death, you can still make use of them. Placing dead pets inside a Liquid Separator will grind them down into blood, bone and hide resources.
New Server Settings
The following new server settings controls pet and thrall hunger:
- Food will decay very slowly when placed in pet Pens. The higher the tier of the pen, the slower it will decay.
- Food will also decay very slowly when placed in food dispensers.

- Fixed a bug where the Avatar of Jhebbal Sag would remain active for longer than set Avatar Lifetime
