So, according to the Test server update notes, Befriend Animal is being removed. I dislike this change immensely. I like this AA and I have found it useful a number of times. I prefer to solo and it has occasionally made the difference between me winning and losing a fight. Also, it's a plain fun AA, in my opinion. Sometimes I like having a pet centipede or spider or crab, or a more typical animal pet like a wolf. I used this ability during the Festival of Unity role-play event to enter the pet show competition. This is no longer going to be possible. Why is this ability being removed? Is it a perfect ability? I don't think so. It's situationally useful, just like a lot of AAs. It's not overpowering. While it gives a certain combat advantage, the charmed pets are far from overpowering, and the added benefit is balanced off by the chance of them turning on you when charm randomly breaks. Please don't take away AAs because they may not be very often used. Nobody has to buy this AA. It's optional. If it isn't taken very often by other rangers it's sort of a moot point to remove it, isn't it? Please leave it in for people who use it and enjoy it. Don't take away something that is fun.
