Default chippy

idk if its intended or not but chippy will nom stacks of trophies your unable to stack to. Tested with only being able to stack to 100 and it nommed stacks of 105, assume its the same for lower stacks as well (example nomming full stacks if toon can only stack to 60 or 50 or w/e)

Also, it seems if you sacrifice a large number of trophies and then immediately enter combat you are stunned for 2-5 seconds at the start of fight.

Chippie can do stacks of 105 himself. We will not nerf that.

The slow encumerance update needs to be addressed.

When DA is turned off. The chippy still works.

Since it was my design (DA trophy nomming) I'll take a few minutes to explain thinking behind this mechanics .

First of all thank you Glitchless for going through with it (attaching it to pet to make it harder was Jeff - yet fair compromise since you need to work a bit to unlock it's potential)

The 2 main reason for it was:

1. To make DA more appealing since alone it seems a bit underpowered (besides ability to stack with Accel) and it was last upgrade choosen by alts (obviously virtues are best choice for feeding)

2 To make it easier for those who already did all hard work creating sophisticated main character to feed their alts

Reason for Chippi to stack 105:

There is no way for mid level alt to drop big stacks of 102 anyways and only option to do so is create it (too expensive) , buy it on AH (smart and good for everyone making trophies more popular now since some didn't bought those big stack due need of constant splitting) and mainly to receive those large stacks from their mains or good friends.

Note: same mechanics works for memory craft when you able to take ingredients from larger piles you normally cannot interact with.

There is no need to waste time for endless clicking and splitting for those who already went through the hard way of leveling stacking/BGT and dress up to be able to kill in high zones

In case when someone new joins the game and push it to petmanship going through endless clicking and splitting it's fine too - those people would need to sell tons of TCS and buy tons of trophies to be able to save lots of time not to mention they need to purchase DA early.

May seem as pay to win but in fact it's not - it's an option to pay extra (aka to use tool road to get to destination faster oppose to be stuck in traffic)

Lastly Chippy (if you invest in it - and very first day record number of new pets was created) allows you save time on things that doesn't expand RT and become annoying for many after introduction of boon/BGT.

Regardless how you feel about it , this utility pet (leave listless out of it) was due to be implemented due changes in game over years.

Buying DA unlocks chippy. It's like grinder doesn't consume mana/energy while crafting (with premmy) and allows TM .
Regardless if you have it on or off - you own it and associated benefit (chippy) is unlocked

I'm pretty sure that beetdabrat was the first to suggest it

Now what's the point of the whole another wall-o-text that no one asked for; one could only wonder.

Owning DA is enough. It would just be a pain if you had to toggle it on/off to make use of Chippie.

Joanna did send a recent email suggesting trophy nomming for DA owners which was good input. Having DA as a prereq for Chippie made sense since DA is a prereq for nomming large stacks. Most of the credit for this implementation has to go to Darklords for being the one to finally supply the requested nomming video.

I'm not Glitchless for x time .

Just the person with some creative input .

And when i respond its usually obvious answer some cannot see or making it more complicated than needed (saving precious admin time)

If there is more complicated question where wording could be interpreted in 2 ways
I'm staying out of it as Jeff is Alpha & Omega if it comes to code and mechanics .

Again to keep it clear:

Joanna = client (player) input
Glitchless = admin (aka God of Nodiatis)

@Darklords: Thank you for backing me up (helping it to happen)

Can we rename the lvl 18 pet in t4 to Hamster, which it clearly is? Now that we have an actual chipmunk and is taxonomically correct (ok it's a nickname, who cares?), this may bring some confusion when chipmunks and chippies are mentioned, i.e, noobs reading chat thinking about lvl 18 pet and caps listening to noobs thinking about LG pet.

Similar to the stun, after nomming trophies with chippy, immediately entering fight your unable to draw a gem or us your CA for ~4-6 seconds at the start of the fight
