I believe they even cited the CVK pet as one of the reasons for nerfing the Dreadrock quest (since the pet already came with guaranteed DCS drop).
So pet complainers essentially got the quest nerfed.
I think it was mostly the change to the VHL quest that caused the change to Dreadrock Gem Exchange as well as the quest designers vendetta against the quest for a longer period of time. CVKS may have been a part of it as well, but what about the Orb Pets, they were released after Dreadrock, but Dreadrock Gem Exchange remained the same after that. It got nerfed when they changed the VHL quest after the weekend, which gave the 100 TGs as a requirement for the quest, as well as some other slight changes, not on release of CVKS.
I already have CVKS, should I buy the Drone pet too since people said it's the fastest Nulgath farming pet right now? I have about 12k AC
If you want a slightly faster way to farm Nulgath reagents, then yes. It's definitely not a "must buy", because CVKS is good enough as is.
I'm not sure if I should buy the Drone Pet now or wait a while; last time I bought a farming pet(Mounted Paragon Pet), it became obsolete(?) a few months later with the release of Dage's Birthday(Shogun Paragon Pet)
Don't expect any new Nulgath pets to be added in until next January, which might just be the seasonal one, although with all these people insisting on wanting rare ones, I kinda doubt it. You don't NEED to buy it this year though since it is seasonal after all, but it's still a great tool to have.
Wait a second, did they change the quest on the Sword Pet?
Didn't it use to require 5 Onibaba Nails, or was I just seeing things wrong all along? Also, since tanuki Ears drop off of Wereboar, the quest is definitely better than I first thought, although, poor Wereboar.
Nvm, the wiki says 2, but ingame it says 5, so it's still very "meh"
Having Makais be a requirement for the quest also works in the favor of the Drone, on top of everything else, because it's basically free Essences while farming for other stuff.
And Drone pet is faster than CVKS?
If you can manage to kill the Wereboar in between the hordes of people, or place an alt in a private Greenguardwest map, then yes, it seems slightly faster, I can only speak from the quest requirement, since I haven't bought it yet. Unless you are really eager to spend 2k ACs on something that would only be slightly better than what you already have, then it's not worth it IMO.
