    I suspect would have been a lot funnier in your hemisphere than ours, depending on how familiar with the lingo us northerners are. I would have giggled though.

    Of course, then everyone would have had to put with me doing one of my two australian accents every time I made the same jokes... I mean basically I can do Alf from Home and Away (draaawl) or generic-angsty-teenager from neighbours (which, if I'm honest, just amounts to saying 'oh no!' in a horrified voice but pronouncing it "oy noy"). I do a better New Zealand, but only after many hours watching Almighty Johnsons...

    Where was I? Oh yeah. Parrots.

    Cosmetic parrots would only be truly awesome if you could record a half dozen sound files for them to play - you know, actually teach them to talk.
    "Awk! Behind you! ORK!"
    "Polly want a D-Door! Polly want a D-Door!"
    "Squawk! You're going home in a Stormreach ambulance!"

    And so on. They'd have to provide us with a recording tool I guess that would keep file sizes down, there's be a max length, a way to report offensive stuff, all that jazz. But how awesome would it be... provided there was a mute option for other players to use. Also there should be a "squelch me, squelch my parrot rule" coded in...

    It also talks like an esophageal cancer patient. I never thought that the ship-amenity parrot would ever sound good, but the cosmetic version's vocal emissions are vastly worse and more horrifying.


    Overall, the Parrot pet is just simply terrible. There is simply nothing about it that is worth the money, or even remotely pleasing to have in-game. I'd ask for my money back - but that'll never happen.

    So what you guys are mostly saying is there is lack of quality in the conception and creation of said parrots.

    Seems to fly ok, it's just the landing that's a bit difficult for it. Jumped off the bridge in GH to see what it would do, toggled my view to watch behind me. It sat perched up top until I landed, then it followed, hit the ground, bounced up and landed next to me... No squawk or anything, so I suppose it wasn't injured in the process.

    That's a shame.

    Again I will state the obvious. Give all of us who hate these pets to have the ability to turn them off so we don't have to see or hear them.

    It would be a win for the people who like them and a win for people who hate them.

    Just admit it - you're a Parrot hater. Probably don't like cute little frogs either, do you?

    Not sure, entirely too quick for my clumsy feet. They have an uncanny ability to avoid my attempts at discovering that mystery.

    I don't mind these at all. It's cool - people can buy them if they like (and I purchased a cockatoo myself) or not. Yeah, it would've been cooler if they landed on your shoulder and taunted anything you were fighting. Maybe later? That would be so cool.

    But I rather see Turbine adding things like these then releasing the latest possible tome for anyone to simply buy. I'm glad btw that the latest items are BTA and I wish there was one step more you could upgrade them to make them BTC. Enough with selling the latest loot on the shard AH.

    But that Hawaiian short idea...nice. Make it so. I'd love to be running around on a pirate island in a Hawaiian shirt clobbering harpies.
