  • Puma Pets
    • What is a Pocket Puma?
      A Pocket Puma is a magical cat that can stand in the palm of your hand. Many have interesting abilities and can help solve complex puzzles.
    • How can I get a Puma?
      There are several ways to get a puma of your own.

      Everyone creates two Progenitor pumas to begin with (or upon return, if you're an older player!)

      You can purchase one from another player, or use the Puma Search to help you find that special one you want.

      Many users also have free pumas for newbies and will advertise on their signatures.
      There are give aways/"flings" done in the Discord chat at times. New members that come to chat may get pumas given to them there too.
      Also, you can find one for sale on the Forums "Puma Sales" board.

      Lastly, you can buy Tiger Eyes from the Cash Exclusives Shop and use them to buy Orbs from the Gemologist. With Orbs, you can design your own Puma in the Demo's and then make in the Orb Cavern and bring him/her to your Den as a member of your pride.
    • Can I create my own Puma?
      Yes! Aside from your progenitor pumas, you can create more custom pumas with the use of an orb. Visit the custom creator in the Orb Cavern to create a custom puma!
    • How do I find a user's pumas for sale?
      First you must click on a user's name to go to their profile. On the top right, click on the "view pride" link. That will take you to their pride page, and at the top left you should see a "sales den" link. There is also a Puma Search (PUMA SEARCH) that will allow you to search for Pumas by breed, marking and many other options!
    • Is there a limit of how many Pumas I can own?
      There is no limit at this time.
    • Will my Pumas die?
      No, But they can get fairly angry.
    • Can Puma names be changed?
      Yes, they can. Puma names can be changed whenever you like. You can find the option to rename them under the Manage/Breed tab.
    • Is it necessary to feed Pumas?
      It is, if you wish to breed them! A comprehensive explanation of this system, the "H3 Meters" can be found here (H3 METERS). Your Pumas will NOT die or disappear if unfed, so you do not need to panic.
    • Markings & Evolutions
      • What is a Marking?
        Markings are patterns and designs, such as stripes, spots, swirls and other shapes that make up your pumas overall coat appearance.

        Pumas can have as many markings as you like, and they may be any color, paradigm, paradigm mix, or combination of color and paradigm!

      • How many markings can there be on a custom Puma?
        You can have as many markings as you have orbs. Orbs are "stackable" meaning you can use as many or as few as you like. You even get "change" in orbs, for example, if you only wish to use 3 markings out of a 4 marking orb you will get one emerald orb as change.
      • What are Evolutions?
        Evolutions are additional traits such as wings, fins, quills, saberteeth, claws and more!

        They can be applied during custom creation or added to existing pumas using a Morpholixer or Changeling Elixir.

        Evolutions can also support their own markings called Enchantments.

      • What are Paradigms?
        Paradigms are color patterns you can use when making your custom puma. When making customs you can choose a paradigm or a hex color, or the markings/evolutions can be done with a mix of paradigm and a hex color. There is a list of all the paradigms here (PARADIGMS LIST)

      • What are Enchantments?
        Enchantments are markings that can be added to evolutions on existing pumas.
        They can be found in the Evolutionary Enchantments (EVOLUTIONARY ENCHANTMENTS) shop, but sometimes also appear as prizes, or as crafted items.
        They are also known as Evo Marks.
      • What are Cabochons?
        Cabochons add special Markings to pumas. Often these markings apply a special effect or animation!
        Cabochons are found in the Firefly Trader (FIREFLY TRADER) and also can be obtained from Bone Collector's Crypt.
        They are items that can be added onto a puma that is already created.
    • Breeding
      • How do I breed Pumas?
        Your puma cannot be hungry, so be sure to keep them well fed!

        You can feed pumas from your inventory, or visiting the Feed Pumas page. A good source of food is the excavation game, or purchasing from the Delicatessen.

        You can either find a mate within your own pride, find a mate via the search engines, or use one of our various networking tools such as forums and ads.

        Note that if your puma's happiness is over 90%, you also have a chance of bonus kittens!
      • How many Pumas are there in a litter?
        Between 1 and 5.

        More than 1 is only possible if the parents are at least 90% happy.
        Premium users have a higher chance of bonus kittens!
      • How old does a Puma need to be to breed?
        12 days old, when they turn from "Youth" to "Adult" in Age. They will turn in age at the specific time they were born.
      • How many days are Pumas pregnant before giving birth?
        5 days unless a Favor of the White Flamingo is used. Using a "favor" will result in an instant birth.
        You can purchase Favors in The Barge-in Empurrium
      • Is inbreeding allowed?
        Any two Pumas that share ancestors up to 7 generations back may not be bred together. These Pumas would produce an inbred offspring, which is not allowed. After 7 generations of separation, the gene pool is wide enough that a breeding would be allowed. The system takes care of this for you, so never fear! You cannot accidentally inbreed your Pumas. There is an inbreeding tool (INBREEDING TOOL) that can be used to see if potential mates would be inbred before purchasing one of them.
      • What are Prism Scarabs?
        Scarabs are breeding add-ons that will change the paradigms the kit you breed with them. Scarabs can be obtained from Miss Mingo's Tool & Dye (MISS MINGO'S), from random events, from excavation, quests and quest shops, also some are seasonal scarabs that are only released during events and in Leo's Loot (LEO'S LOOT)
      • What are Bumbleblooms?
        Bumbleblooms are also breeding add-ons like scarabs, however they change hex colors on the kit you breed with them. Bumbleblooms are obtained from Miss Mingo's Tool & Dye (MISS MINGO'S)
    • Custom Pumas
      • How does the orb system work?
        You can buy orbs in 1-marking, 2-marking, 3-marking, and 4-marking varieties.

        Emerald Orb - 1
        Sapphire Orb - 2
        Garnet Orb - 3
        Opal Orb - 4

        You may use as many as you like when creating a puma, the orbs add up their values.

        You could use 3 Emerald Orbs (valued at 1 marking each) to make a 3-marking puma.

        Or you could use 2 Opal Orbs (valued at 4 markings each) to create a 6-marking puma, and get a Sapphire Orb as change when done.
      • Can I own a one-of-a-kind Puma?
        New One-of-a-Kind (OOAK) Pumas are not currently available. Please check back for more details.
      • Can I make a "Markingless" custom Puma?
        Yes! This requires the use any Orb, you will aquire "change" from a larger orb if used as a markingless is considered same as one marking if no evolutions are used.
    • Equipment
      • What is the Evo Marking Demo?
        The evo marking demo is used on an existing puma to see an Enchantment on any one evolution. It will only show one Enchantment Mark at a time. The Evo Demo does not allow you to order where you want it, so it always shows the evo marking on top of any existing evo marks
      • How do I dress/equip items to my puma?
        To equip any item, go to the item in your inventory, click on the drop down menu and select equip item to puma.

        From the manage link, you will be able to select "Remove" next to the item you wish to take off your puma.

    • What is Towel Day?
      Towel Day is a worldwide celebration, but also one that the pumas of P3 holds near and dear to their hearts. Towel Day is a tribute to Douglas Adams and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

      Towel Day is celebrated the 25th of May, but sometimes begins a day early on P3 and lasts about a week.

      During Towel Day you will find the Gifting Stump appears, covered in towels, for sharing gifts with other hoopy froods.

      Confused? Don't Panic! You can learn more about the real world Towel Day by visiting the Wikipedia Article.

    • What is Summer Festival?
      Summerfest is all about the hottest season of the year! Pumas break out the cool drinks, pool noodles, and go on exotic vacations!

      Approximate Date: June 20th-22nd, and lasts about a week or two.

      During Summerfest you can play the Profile Click Game every hour to bounce a beach ball with your friends!

      The gifting stump also appears so you can give and get summery gifts!

    • What is Weekend Luau?
      Often shortened to just Luau, this festival is a short weekend event, though sometimes extended to about a week.

      Luau is always the last weekend of August!

      Traditionally Luau has been a tropical island themed event, with Hawaiian inspiration and hula-dancing. Recently Luau has begun shifting to being a summer party that may take place in other locales, but you can expect a party no matter where the pumas go.

      The profile game is available to play once per hour during Luau, and the gifting stump also appears for sharing gifts with friends!

    • What is P3s Birthday?
      Every year P3 celebrates its birthday!

      From September 12th-18th everyone is invited to celebrate P3 being another year older.

      During the Birthday celebration we hand out gifts and cake and other sweet treats, and you can play the profile game every hour.

      The Gifting Stump also makes an appearance so you can share gifts with friends and other players!

    • What is Danse Macabre?
      Our biggest celebration of the year! The Danse Macabre is packed full of spooky scary prizes, costumes, and events!

      Danse begins in late October around the 24th, and lasts into the first week or more of November.

      Along with our normal seasonal releases, special costum packages called Trunks appear during Danse for the cost of 5 Tiger Eyes. Trunks from previous years return for 7 Tiger Eyes.

      You are invited to play the profile game each hour for special prizes, and the gifting stump appears so you can stuff it full of treats and gifts for your friends!

    • What is Winter Festival?
      Winter can be a dreary month, so the Pumas fill the time by having snowball fights!

      Each December, often lasting a bit over a month and well into January, we celebrate Winterfest!

      This festival is purposefully long, as many players are quite busy during the holidays and we don't want anyone to miss out. You'll have plenty of time to check in and get your seasonal items.

      The profile game appears during Winter Festival, where you may join the snowball fight once per hour for prizes (or a snowball to the face!).

      Giving gifts is easy with the Gifting Stump also making an appearance during Winterfest!

    • What is Steampunk Month?
      Although not one of our main festivals, we aim to release steampunk themed items during all of November!

      There are no additional features during Steampunk Month, just gears and cogs and getting creative with decorating pumas!

    • What is Talk Like a Pirate Day?
      International Talk Like a Pirate Day! Also shortened to TLAPD, this mini-celebration is about pirates, arrr!

      TLAPD happens every September 19th!

      We aim to release a few pirate themed items, and encourage players to use pirate speak and dress up pirate-themed pumas!
