Default Prices and Upgrades

The P.E.T can be purchased from the PET/Gears section in the Hangar.
If you have no PET it will be the only thing available to purchase.
Once the PET is purchased you will have access to the other items.



The P.E.T costs 50,000 Uridium to purchase and it has the basic statistics of:
· 1 gear slot

· 1 weapon slot
· 2 generator slot
· 2 AI protocol slot
· Base HP value (at level 1 – 50,000 HP)
It also comes with 10,000 units of fuel as an added bonus.

As the P.E.T. levels up it will grow in size, similar to the drones.
This grants the P.E.T. more slots for weapons, protocols, etc.
Each level will also give the P.E.T. a little bonus.



It's hitpoints can also be higher if you purchase the hitpoint upgrade.



This upgrade can be found in the P.E.T./Gear section in the shop, after each level gained.
To purchase the extra slots you must go to the P.E.T. tab in the Equipment section.



You will see that the slots are locked, shown by a padlock icon.
You can just simply click the padlock to confirm to buy it.



Each level unlocks certain amount of slots, for certain amount of price.
The P.E.T. can be destroyed by other players - you can also destroy your own P.E.T, but it's not advisable, as you lose Honor.

When destroyed, you will have to repair it.

This can be done on the Space Map (the repair cost will increase based on the level of the P.E.T).
Simply click the repair option to allow your P.E.T to come back online.

The P.E.T will come back with a small percentage of HP.

Default P.E.T 10 Fuel

The P.E.T needs fuel to fly around and be active.
The higher the level of your P.E.T or the more equip items, the more fuel it will consume.
The formula for the fuel consumption of the PET is:
1 + ( [PET Level] * 2 ) + ( [Ai Protocols equipped] * 2 ) + ( [Gears equipped] * 4)

The P.E.T will automatically hide away if it runs out of fuel, but it is needed to fly.
You can buy fuel in the gear section of the shop.
You can select, 10, 100, 1000 or choose maximum fuel allowed.
You can use the - / + signs to increase/decrease the amounts also.
If you just wish to purchase a set amount you can enter the number you wish to buy.

Set price for 0.25 uridium, but you can only buy a minimum of 1 uridium worth.
Since you can't spend 0.25 uridium.

Default Protocol FAQ

Protocols

There are a total of 10 protocols, each with 3 levels. Each level grants slightly better attributes of the protocol, the level of the PET dictates what level of protocol you can purchase and install.
Protocols can be purchased and installed on the PET just like equipment or gears, they are also configuration sensitive; if you are configuration 1 then you cannot use protocols installed on configuration 2.
Cargo Protocol



The cargo protocol will increase your cargo space by *%, the percentage is dependent on the level of the protocol installed.





Radar Protocol




With the radar protocol installed the radar range of your PET increases, this increases the effectiveness of the locator and collector gears. Each level increases the range of the radar increase.





Salvage Protocol




With the salvage protocol installed you can increase the amount collected from cargo and bonus boxes. It has a random bonus chance of "malfunctioning" and giving a 10% increase instead of the percentage dictated by the level of the protocol.





Shield Management Protocol




The shield protocol increases the shield value of the PET by a certain percentage; the percentage is dependent on the level of the protocol installed.





Laser Management Protocol




The laser protocol increases the damage caused by the lasers installed on the PET by a certain percentage; the percentage is dependent on the level of the protocol installed.






Targeting Protocol




The precision protocol increases the accuracy of the lasers installed on the PET by a *%; the percentage is dependent on the level on the protocol installed.





Evasion Protocol




The evasion protocol makes your PETs movement more erratic, reducing the accuracy of any attackers. The percentage reduction is dependent on the level of the protocol.






Hitpoint Protocol




The hitpoint protocol increases the PETs hitpoints by a certain percentage, the percentage is dictated by the level of the protocol installed.





Alien Protocol




The alien protocol increases the PETs damage towards NPCs by a certain percentage, the percentage is dependent on the level of the protocol that is installed.
Note: The damage increase pertains to the PETs lasers and not the kamikaze gear.






Economy Protocol



The economy protocol reduces the fuel consumption of the PET by *%, the percentage is dependent on the level of the protocol installed.





Thank you to Sephiroth & Kalona for their participation on this thread.

Default Gear Faq

Gears

P.E.T. 10

The P.E.T. box is represented by the circular symbol, once opened it will not show any details until the P.E.T. is launched, to do this click on the play button. It will cost fuel to launch the P.E.T.; if you do not have enough fuel only the fuel symbol will show to remind you to purchase some. The launch button will change into a dock button when the P.E.T. is on the space map.







When launched the box will display the statistics for your P.E.T. The image on the left of the window shows your P.E.T.s current level in the bottom right of the picture; your P.E.T.s name is shown at the top of the box. Underneath the name the hitpoints (1), sheild (2), fuel (3) and the EP (4) of the P.E.T. are shown. If you hover your mouse cursor over the numerical values of each will be shown.







The drop down can be used to select the behavior of the P.E.T.; the available behaviors will depends on what gears are equipped.
Passive mode

This is the default mode and your P.E.T will not do anything but follow you.
Guard mode

Your P.E.T will stay on guard to attack anything that attacks you, both players and NPCs. If you are shooting an opponent it will help you; it works in every map, including Galaxy Gates. It will use the ammo that you have selected, it will only use laser ammunition as it cannot fire rockets.

Auto-looter



This mode will prompt the P.E.T. to collect cargo and bonus boxes within its' detection range, the level of the gear will expand the detection range.

Use the Auto-looter when on an NPC quest, or in a Galaxy Gate, to collect the cargo boxes for you. It will save you alot of time.

Auto-resource collector




When on this mode the P.E.T. will collect the selected resource type, to choose this type click on the ore in the second menu list.

Enemy Locator



Like the resource collector this gear has a second menu, it will allow you to choose which NPC you wish your P.E.T. to find within it's detection radius. Once that NPC is found a directional ring will appear pointing you in the right direction. A small green ping will also appear on the mini map for you.

Resource Locator



The resource location mode is identical to the enemy locator, apart from that it will direct you towards resources and not enemies. You can select the resource in the second menu, and when it has been located on the map the directional ring will point you towards it.

Cargo Trader




The cargo trader allows you to sell your resources outside of the base station, when the mode is selected the trade window will open up as normal. The P.E.T. will then sell the selected ore, and in doing so it will be unavailable for a short period of time. This time is dependent on the level of the gear equipped; a cool down will be shown to let you know how long is remaining until the P.E.T. returns.

Kamikaze




If this option is selected then the P.E.T. will explode when it's hitpoints drop below a certain level.

Use this in combination with a smartbomb in PvP battles to wear your enemy down.


Kamikaze detonator (Level: 1)
Effect: Causes 25000 splash damage upon exploding.
Radius: 250

When your P.E.T. or ship is close to being destroyed, the Kamikaze detonator will start the self-destruct sequence and explode, thereby taking out all enemies in the immediate vicinity.

After the detonator has gone off, your P.E.T. will be massively damaged and have to be repaired.



Kamikaze detonator (Level: 2)
Effect: Causes 45000 splash damage upon exploding.
Radius: 350

When your P.E.T. or ship is close to being destroyed, the Kamikaze detonator will start the self-destruct



Kamikaze detonator (Level: 3)
Effect: Causes 75000 splash damage upon exploding.
Radius: 450

When your P.E.T. or ship is close to being destroyed, the Kamikaze detonator will start the self-destruct




P.E.T. repairer



The P.E.T. cannot repair itself, it must use a Repair Gear. When set to this mode, the P.E.T. will regenerate a certain amount of hitpoints per second. The higher the level of the gear, the faster the repair rate. This will not repair your P.E.T. if it has been destroyed in battle - if this happens, then the launch button will change into a repair button. Clicking this will repair the P.E.T. with a small percentage of hitpoints; the cost will vary depending on the level of your P.E.T.



There are a total of 7 gears which have various functions; these gears also have 3 different levels. Dependent on the level of the PET dictates what level of gear you have access to.
To purchase a gear click on the gear icon you wish to purchase, and then on the right hand side you can choose the level of the gear you wish to purchase.


Protocols can be used to enhance certain gears.


Auto Loot Gear


The auto loot gear will allow your PET to collect the free cargo boxes from NPCs, and destroyed ships; it will also collect bonus boxes. Whilst the auto loot gear is active it can only be attacked by other players and not NPCs. Increasing the level of this gear will increase the range at which the PET can detect, and collect cargo boxes or bonus boxes.






Auto Resource Collection Gear


The auto resource will automatically collect the desired resources within its detection range. Increasing the level of the gear increases the detection and collection range of the PET. With no resource set it will collect any resource in its range when the gear is active; you can also set it to collect a specific ore on the map. Whilst the auto loot gear is active it can only be attacked by other players and not NPCs.



Enemy Locator Gear


The enemy locator gear will point you towards the nearest NPC, of the type which you choose (specific to the map you are in). The PET can be attacked by players and NPCs whilst in this gear is active. If no NPC type is chosen, then it will automatically default to the first NPC in the list. Increasing the level of this gear will increase the PETs detection range.




Resource Locator Gear


The resource locator gear will point you towards the nearest resources, of a type you choose (specific to the map you are in). The PET can be attacked by NPCs and players whilst this gear is active. If no resource type is chosen, it will automatically default back to the fist resource type on the list. Increasing the level of this gear will increase the PETs detection range.




Trade Pod Gear

The trade pod gear allows you to sell cargo at anytime, and from anywhere. However whilst the PET is selling your resources it will be absent for a period of time. The PET cannot be attacked at all whilst it is selling resources. Increasing the level of the gear increases the bonus you will get for selling resources, and decreases the time that the Pet is absent for.



Repair Gear



The repair gear allows you PET to repair battle damage at a rate of x per second; it cannot repair itself whilst in battle. Each level of the gear repairs the PET faster.




Kamikaze Gear



If equipped the kamikaze gear will cause your Pet to launch one last devastating attack to your enemy. When you, or your PET, reach a certain percentage of damage the PET will launch itself towards your enemy and explode. This explosion does a maximum damage, dependent on the level of the gear. Increasing the level of this gear will increase the damage of the explosion, and increase the area over which the PETs explosion causes damage.
