Legendary pets are great, I love having my Fire Drake around with me, but the thing is he can take up quite some space. (He's already caused some arguments just by flying around.)
So I wondered what would be a good way to lessen up the space they take up.

Then I remembered that pets like Skypouncers will sit down after a short while.
It would be great for my Fire Drake to rest his wings for a bit and just sit down.

Like this;


Simply put, I'd like there to be a 'Sit' option added to each Legendary Pet's emote menu.
When told to sit, the pets would sit down in whichever way that certain pet sits and stay in that spot until called or until you go out of range where they automatically reappear next to you.

Any Legendary pets that do not currently have a sitting animation would have one created.

Also possibly having it where if you're stood still for a minute, the pet will sit automatically, but will immediately follow you should you move as opposed to staying put when told to sit.

That isn't the same.
The younger forms visually look different, they aren't just smaller adults.

Plus I roleplay, I don't really see how I could fit "My Fire Drake is suddenly a baby again!" into it.

Also I utilise all 3 of my pets set abilities, changing it to a smaller form removes one or two of those.

pets already sit if you stay in 1 spot long enough


Well as drakes are always in flight, i dont see how they can "sit".

Also, Fire drakes aren't always in flight. They stand on the floor at the start of their Teleport, their Fire Breath emote and when they Forage.
Their sitting animation could start out with them flying down and sitting there like they do at the beginning of the Drake Teleport.

Only one of the things I mentioned was an Ability.
Drake Teleport and Fire Breath are both animations, which a sitting animation would be counted as too.

Your argument against this seems strange to me though, they shouldn't be able to sit because they always fly?
That's like saying before Jagex implemented resting our player characters shouldn't be allowed to rest because we're always standing.

Thanks for the support and the suggestion Howlwolve!

We could also think up of other little things the other pets could do.
While kneeling, Prototype Colossus could create a tiny one of those orb things, catch it in its right hand and just toss it behind itself.

Blazehounds could also let a bit of fire/smoke slip out when it barks.

Thanks for the support Soaky!

Ahura, Adult Drakes take up 4 squares, the same as every other adult Legendary Pet. My Fire Drake has already been hidden under 'Pouncers and Reindeers.

They only seem bigger because of their wings, which would be folded up when sitting, making them appear MUCH smaller. In fact, when doing the Breathe Fire emote my Fire Drake sinks lower than my Skypouncer stands.

Besides, one point of my suggestion is that they stay in a spot when told to sit.
You can tell them to sit away from the smaller pets so they don't take up their space.

And on terms of pets clipping, pretty sure other Adult Legendary Pets will clip with the larger single tile pets. ie, Adult Warborn Behemoth & King Black Dragonling.

I've been pretty lucky lately on that front.
When training my alt I had about 3 people saying my dragon looked cool and how do they get it.
But still, I avoid highly populated areas because of the ones that do complain now.

Thanks for the support Luis244!

I'm glad Jagex lets us post images on the forums now so I can show what I mean by a sitting Drake. :)

Thanks for the support Redstarpelt! ^^

Seeing an adult Fire Drake running across the floor like the Adolescent version would be kinda scary haha, though that might just be my experience on Monster Hunter games.

I've noticed that my Fire Drake also has a darker skin colour on NXT but since it's usually a light colour anyway it looks nicer.

Thanks for the support Raptor! ^^

Yeah, we can get the pets to bring stuff to our banks, carry items and even pick up items in certain categories, yet we can't even tell them to sit and stay. :P
