As usually lot of information is missing. Does the whistle need to be recharged? Price is? Yes and pet bonded. What is if pet is on sale?

you can only target a pet that has already bonded with you.
And if you sell your pet, you can target another pet with the whistle.
but it has to be a week after you added the first pet to it.

What's with the week timer? You should be able to use it on any bonded pet you have out of the stable. Some times they really overthink things.

Only one pet "bonded" to the flute
One week before you can bond another
account bond flute

It was cheap though, only 200 soverigns, but that doest justify all the limitations.
Are you supposed to have multiple pet flutes in your backpack, one for each pet? I dont want that, even if cheap price.

would be better 600 soverigns, no limitations.

What are the "tricks" that the pet does with the whistle?
Ultima Store Item – Pet Whistle
  • The Pet Whistle can be bound to a bound pet.
  • Allows the owner to command their pet to perform a number of animations including,
    • Attack
    • Block
    • Play Dead
    • Settle Down
    • Wait
    • Eat
    • What’s that?
  • Not all animations are available for all pets.
  • The pet whistle is an account bound item and can only be used by the account that purchases it.
  • The whistle can be bound to a new pet after 1 week.
Pet Whistle is Account Bound!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A pure decorative item.
Pets that have an eating animation work correctly.

Some ML pets and older do not have that animation so those do not do everything correctly.

I put in a bug report while it was on TC. Maybe they fixed them. :grin:

My nightmare also does very few things, its basically the play dead thats kinda cool, but appart from that particular one i dont see the value in it.
I am assuming they will add animations in a new patch (I guess other games would have made the patch first, then flute, but OK)
Then again, considering of the work to do new animations on 50pets, for both 2d and EC I dont think we will see one.
:confused:

Did anyone try this with a dread mare?
I don't have one. If you want to give me one, Ill test it.

All the other horses did the same. Horses have one of the best Play Dead.

The pets that don't do everything correct will cycle randomly thru what they can do when you click commands.
