I purchased the Battle Pets skills on a few of my characters on the beta. They all share the same roster of pets, but each character has their own cooldown timer for the Revive Battle Pets skill.

It seems like if I wanted to, I could just invest in giving all my characters the basic pet battle training, and never have to spend money with a stable master ever again. Just log to a different character and use the free ability.

A 3m coolup (activated on login) is now applied to the Revive Battle Pets spell and the Stable Master version. You guys should see this in the next build.

This is a good thread, here are a few of our thoughts:

Healing pets to full after every battle is not a change we are interested in making. We want to encourage players to not only win a battle, but to win by taking the least amount of damage or by using pet heals in a smart way. Attrition is a driving part of the gameplay and it won't be going away anytime soon. We do have tunable factors that we will continue to watch though. (Battle Recovery, Revive spell cooldown & pet bandages)

In regards to the Revive Pets spell, we have just reduced the cooldown to 10m for the next build. (Down from 15m) We will keep a close eye on the feedback and continue to monitor how often players are using the Stable Master to heal. The Stable Master should be a fallback, not a requirement. We know the pet bandages are a bit too sparse right now too, we are going to amp that up as well to help fill in the gaps.

Finally, the cool-up's that we added to the heal spells (both the player and stable master) are to deal with exploit cases of players using multiple characters/accounts to avoid cooldowns. We used 3 minutes as a baseline since most players can fly to one in that amount of time from pretty much anywhere on a full speed mount.

Thanks for all the feedback, we are listening!
