Legendary pets are great, I love having my Fire Drake around with me, but the thing is he can take up quite some space. (He's already caused some arguments just by flying around.)
So I wondered what would be a good way to lessen up the space they take up.

Then I remembered that pets like Skypouncers will sit down after a short while.
It would be great for my Fire Drake to rest his wings for a bit and just sit down.

Like this;


Simply put, I'd like there to be a 'Sit' option added to each Legendary Pet's emote menu.
When told to sit, the pets would sit down in whichever way that certain pet sits and stay in that spot until called or until you go out of range where they automatically reappear next to you.

Any Legendary pets that do not currently have a sitting animation would have one created.

Also possibly having it where if you're stood still for a minute, the pet will sit automatically, but will immediately follow you should you move as opposed to staying put when told to sit.

That isn't the same.
The younger forms visually look different, they aren't just smaller adults.

Plus I roleplay, I don't really see how I could fit "My Fire Drake is suddenly a baby again!" into it.

Also I utilise all 3 of my pets set abilities, changing it to a smaller form removes one or two of those.

Well it isnt meant to "sit" as they're always using their wings unlike the other winged ones.


pets already sit if you stay in 1 spot long enough, what hes asking for is a perm sit option which is fine with me.

Well as drakes are always in flight, i dont see how they can "sit".

Also, Fire drakes aren't always in flight. They stand on the floor at the start of their Teleport, their Fire Breath emote and when they Forage.
Their sitting animation could start out with them flying down and sitting there like they do at the beginning of the Drake Teleport.

Only one of the things I mentioned was an Ability.
Drake Teleport and Fire Breath are both animations, which a sitting animation would be counted as too.

Your argument against this seems strange to me though, they shouldn't be able to sit because they always fly?
That's like saying before Jagex implemented resting our player characters shouldn't be allowed to rest because we're always standing.

Bump.

I have also encountered problems with my Fire Drake causing a dispute, mainly in highly condensed population areas (such as the Grand Exchange on w2).

I hadn't seen anything wrong with my pet's nature, I am enamored with the quality of the animation in its flight ability and the detail of the wings on the Drake while using NXT. Truly looks fantastic.

I wholeheartedly agree with this. I think that the adult version of this pet is too cool looking to have to change into less mature forms for the convenience of others.

Perhaps while it is sitting, it could spit fire accidentally once or twice? :P
