Main / Animals / Animal conditions

Summary

Creatures occasionally spawn with a special condition affecting its size, color, fighting ability, and/or behavior.

A creature's condition appears in its name, following its age. For example, a mature crocodile with the "fierce" condition will appears as a "mature fierce crocodile".

Spawning

There are three ways an animal can spawn with a condition:

  • A creature lair may have a specific condition associated with it, and spawn its creatures with that condition. For example, a specific garbage pile may spawn sly large rats.
    • Lairs will also occasionally produce champion creatures of its creature type.
  • Creatures that spawn naturally may be spawned with a random condition, if that creature type can have lairs.
    • For example, trolls may naturally spawn with conditions because they have a lair type (troll mounds), even if there is no lair nearby, but cows will never spawn with conditions naturally, because cows do not have a lair type at all.
  • Missions may spawn champion creatures, regardless of whether or not that creature type can have a lair.
    • For example, blue whales do not have a lair type, but champion blue whales can still be spawned by missions.

Breeding

  • Animals can be bred with a condition only from breeding a female animal with the desired condition. If the male animal also has the condition it may have a greater chance of being passed on to the offspring.

Size

  • Many conditions affect the visual size of a creature. However, if the creature can be ridden as a mount, its size will not be affected by conditions.
    • For example, a champion deer will be very large, but a champion unicorn will be the same size as a normal unicorn of the same age, because they can be ridden by players.
