Resources - Livestock Numbers

In order to maintain a small bit of realism in terms of general care and time dedicated to upkeep, Characters (Loners and Joining) and Packs are limited by the number and size of excess livestock animals that they can have attached to them. For your reference:

At joining, a maximum of two (2) hoofed livestock cNPCs is permitted per adult character. This means your character and its canine cNPC (if it has one!) may have up to four animals between them. Hoofed livestock include horses, cattle, oxen, sheep, goats, pigs, etc. Traveling into the area with a large number of livestock is not permitted. Characters that join packs can, post-joining, obtain more personal livestock within a reasonable amount. Loners remain restricted to two livestock per adult.

  • Large hoofed animals: 10
  • Small hoofed animals: 20
  • Fowl: 20


  • Packs are also required to have 1 dedicated pNPC per 30 communal animals.
  • Packs are permitted to trade in slots of small hoofed animals for large hoofed animals in a 2:1 ratio. Thus, if a pack with maxed out milestones chooses to forgo keeping any small hoofed animals in order to maximize large ones, they'd be able to trade those 40 small hoof slots for 20 additional large hoof slots. Fowl slots cannot be traded in.

How livestock are categorized

Curious on where your livestock animal falls by our categorizing standards? Use this guide! Need help on figuring out where your exotic livestock animal falls? Ask Google (ex. “How much do [ANIMALS] eat per day?”)!

  • Notes:
    • Non-livestock animals of "benefit," such as resident cats and crows, do not count. Non-hoofed mammals such as rabbits also do not count. Communal raptors (ex. falcons, eagles, hawks) are not permitted (or realistic) and should be individually owned/partnered with by specific characters.
    • Only adult animals count towards Pack livestock allotments! Juveniles and infant animals should not be counted in your totals.
