How do I get my non combat pet to auto collect gold, loot or crafting mats around me?
They can stand underwater or in molten lava for hours without dying, climb sheer walls just so they can be beside you, stand with one foot on the ground and the other three in midair over the side of a cliff, follow you automatically through portals and wayshrines, etc. In other words, they are totally awesome!
Like a pet vac? If pVac was added to ESO, it would probably be pay-to-win. The only situation I can see it being useful in is a pet that automatically picks up the reagents from the ground for you, those being alchemy, blacksmithing, woodworking, etc. This would be too powerful to be something free, and would need to be sold. There's another game that does this called Maplestory. But the system is different slightly, and it's still pay to win.
I used to play Torchlight and the pet was more like a companion than a pet as it fought in battles. It had its own inventory and when your inventory was full you could send it to town to sell your stuff.
Also you could do fishing and feed it the fish and it would transform into different creatures.
I'd like to be able to send Bastion to the shops. And feed him a minnow to turn him into a mudcrab.
