We need more monkey pets in the game

kaioruschellub17_ESO
I was wondering why we don't have more monkey pets in the game, there are only two, a pet from the beta test and other pets from the jester event, we need more monkey pets, cute monkeys, I need at least one in my collection. :(

    ZOS needs to go to the zoo and see the vast varied and types of monkeys and pick something that isn't plain brown; though I do love my brown monkeys!

    I want them to add monkeys as a playable race. Then there would be a LOT more monkeys in the game! 🙈 🙉 🙊

    If you were in th beta you would have gotten a pet monkey. just sayin. Def would like something monkey ish but not a monkey. monkeys are not nice pets. if they had a mind to, they could end you. though eso monkeys are an idealized fantasy so maybe they'd be ok?

    Not at all interested in monkeys myself (see Clowdy's statement above - "not nice pets" is a major understatement) but sure, put 'em in. I don't have to use them.

    they can add to the game yes, the monkey from the beta will still be there so you can display it, there are several different colors for them to add to the game,

    Tang Mo. Another race from Akavir.

    Maybe they'll expand to the isle of Akavir somedag. Then all the races there should become playable too. Maormer also. There's really no lore reason we shouldn't have that option. There are Maormer and Tang Mo mods for Oblivion and Skyrim even. Was one of my favorites.

    I would also adore if we got a merchant or banker that was a monkey that climbed on our arm like the Crow merchant/banker perch on our arm. It would be so cute!

    A pickpocket monkey to go with the Thieves Guild story line.

    I have some good news for you

    Until ZOS decides to make monkeys playable we'll have to make do with nords as theyre the next closest thing

    I have the beta monkey and I'd be fine with another one being added to the game. I assume ZOS would make it look different enough that if anyone cares they'd be able to tell the difference (as they have with the jester monkey that already exists), but I doubt many people care about where exactly another player got a specific pet.
    If you were in th beta you would have gotten a pet monkey. just sayin. Def would like something monkey ish but not a monkey. monkeys are not nice pets. if they had a mind to, they could end you. though eso monkeys are an idealized fantasy so maybe they'd be ok?

    I don't think daedra would be nice pets if they were real, big cats certainly aren't and wolves are at best very impractical for the majority of people, but they're all pets in ESO. I don't think real-life considerations have anything to do with it.

    If they add more generic monkeys to the game in different colours, then no one will bat an eyelid at the beta monkey, because monkeys will just be another regular reskinned pet you can acquire in the crown store. The whole point of even equipping the beta monkey at this point is to say to people “I was there at the start of it all.”

    That's why I think the game shouldn't have any new monkey pets added, the beta monkey pets should remain rare and worthy of comment when you see one.

    That's a really fun idea!!!! We got the gopher node harvester, a pickpocket monkey would be reasonable.

    Agreed. I was honestly a little ticked off when they added the Jester’s monkey.

    Does anyone actually comment on it? I use mine regularly and I can't remember anyone ever saying anything about it.

    I have had comments about other pets, most memorably someone who had the Striped Senche-Panther Cub pet from the Starter Pack saw I had the adult version and asked what they had to do to make it grow up. I think they were disappointed when I explained it's a seperate pet and I just bought it from the crown store.

    I commented on another player's monkey pet recently. I said "Is that one of the beta monkeys" and the player confirmed it was. Obviously, I have no knowledge of other such conversations, but they probably occurred.

    Where did that image come from?

    Edit: Apparently it hasn't been officially announced yet, so it's being considered by someone at ZOS but isn't guaranteed to be released.

    I want a 300 pound orangutan polymorph. All the dialogue will be different variations of "Ook."
    The polymorph's name will be "The Librarian". It will like drinking and playing the organ.

    It will gently caress the spines of chained books, then casually pound on the heads of those requesting more “monkey” pets.

    man, there are so many things in ESO that should be unique and today they are no longer, most of the PVE achievements (skins and mounts) should be unique, and today they are no longer due to the fact that there are others exactly similar in the game, so this narrative of yours It's kinda silly :)
