I didn't say it "Had" to hinder the player. I'm saying Spirit Link already does hinder the player, So Giving it a Shorter Recast isn't broken as there's already a Limit to how much it can heal and how it effects the Player itself. I'm addressing that as a "possible" Fix to Wyvern pets dying. I don't like that it hurts the player, Nor do i think its "great". I'm only saying DRGs have an Ability to cure their Wyverns, getting SE to adjust that Ability would be more likely than having them add an entirely new system to Wyverns in terms of Curing.
If you're not addressing me, Then Ignore the above, As it would have nothing to do with you.
If you're in an Alliance, You can always disengage, move back, Spirit Link, Cure yourself, and come back. If you're solo. its more complicated.
If Solo, Your pet should only ever get hit if its by an AoE, At which point you should cure him, and not wait until the next possible AoE. When a Wyvern takes damage you should Spirit Link to recover it. So You should never be in a situation where "My Wyvern is almost dead and the mob is readying an AoE". <Edit: I'm not saying these situations never arise, I'm only expressing they should be rare, maybe brought about by a bad -aga spell > AoE TP move, But in those situations Pet food wouldn't save you anyway>
So I reiterate. I Would welcome the idea of a Pet Food for Wyvern, I'm only saying its Unlikely, not that i hate the idea. And That i agree Spirit Link is in itself a hindering Ability as its Timer is too Long, and it hurts the Player.
I'm Just express my idea that Tweaking Spirit Link Instead of introducing an entirely new job ability and System around a Wyvern-Feed idea Might get more attention/Implementation. I think if we asked SE to Rehaul spirit Link to something like this:
Recast: 1 minute
Drains 1/4th of Users HP. Gives 2x the Amount to Wyvern.
We might get that. It wouldn't be perfect, But it would be a simple solution, easily added, that might make some people happy? Again, I'm not insulting the idea of Wyvern-Food, Infact i like it. I'm only saying its unrealistic, and maybe asking SE for Spirit Link Over-Haul could get is more attention/better results.
