Combat Messages

Arena Messages

  • None - familiar cannot compete at the Arena.

Notes

  • When attempting to have this familiar battle in the Arena, Susie gives the message: "Since the Arena doesn't have a 'sitting motionless, doing absolutely nothing' event, there's probably no point in allowing your Toothsome Rock to compete." (Although the thought occurs it would probably be pretty good at hide and seek... the hiding part, at least.)
  • The Toothsome Rock does nothing at all, similar to a real pet rock, but it can at the very least contribute to a few trophies that require familiar weight.
  • Before May 1, 2012, the Toothsome Rock was sometimes a familiar of choice for PvPers as its +11 equipment was advantageous in the "Familiar Kills" minigame.
  • While it doesn't say anything special for the wax lips, miniature gravy-covered maypole, or lucky Tam O'Shanter it still gives the effects of each item. In other words if you equip a Toothsome Rock with wax lips you have the equivalent of a 9 lb. volleyball.
  • Unlike most familiars, the Toothsome Rock has two pieces of familiar-specific equipment.
  • This is functionally identical to the original Pet Rock, although it has a large useless tooth like most cartoon depictions of prehistoric creatures.
  • Note that "toothsome" means "tasty" or "sexually attractive." "Toothy" means "having teeth." Mr Skullhead likes to conflate the two words.
