    Default New Mage pet skins

    Hi folks.

    As so many others, I like to change my pets around every now and then, so when the new skins arrived, I bought almost all of them. Including the 3 Baacs for my mage, because I like their look. One thing annoys me, though, and that is the Marauder skin. It's supposed to cover the Knight, a tanking pet, yet it has absolutely nothing that indicates that. The Dreadtrooper is fine, it's clearly a DPS skin with the dualwielding axes, but the Marauder is not holding any weapons, shield or wearing any kind of armor that says "I can tank for you".

    Does anyone know why this is? Trion just forgot to add stuff to the model or is it for the fun of if ("haha, I can do this barehanded, you sux")?

    "new"

    They're the ptw models they had out when the Planetouched Wildes came out. They were locked away behind lockbox rng. Now finally adding them to buy right out. As in they're straight model copy paste from the few unique mobs in that zone. Does the correct corresponding mob have a shield?

    No clue, I skipped most of PTW when it was current because I wasn't really playing at the time. Does it?

    I guess I should have made the title "new in shop" instead of just "new", but hey, I didn't know better. And it's also beside the point, which is: Why is the tanking skin not showing any signs of being capable of tanking?

    Thanks for the reply, I'm glad that they are permanent. Now I don't have to worry and I can buy them whenever.

    Yeah, the new pet skins were a real letdown. I'm honestly amazed that Trion can screw something so basic up like this. Of all things, you'd think a F2P game would bother having some effort put into cosmetic item stuff once in a while.

    Those aren't the new pet skins lol those have been in game for at least 2 years.

    The "newest" pet skins were ones found in lockboxes but they decided to put them on the store. The skins came out when PTW came out.

    The mage skins are only for Necro pets.
