Don't get me wrong, they're very cute, and at first it gave me the nostalgic feeling of Feral flare. Plus I like the potential for viability in a starting item. The previous jungle items only changing smite was boring, and it's nice how it doesn't require extra gold or take up a late game item slot like the older items.
But I don't get the purpose of the actual pet model. I don't see how they couldn't achieve the same effect without needing a little creature following me around. I never notice the pet, unless I'm chasing down the enemy jungler and the pet lags behind them, which is purely a negative interaction imo.
Am I alone on this? Does everyone else secretly love having a lil frog friend following them around?External link →
