About a week ago, I made a biopet using a Hiryu for Prowess.  I tried again this weekend and was instantly killed when I clicked on the peaced Hiryu.  I thought maybe that one might have been bugged, so I killed it and tried the next one to spawn with the same results.  Thinking maybe that one spot might be bugged, I tried another spot in South Isamu-Jima (rather than North), with same results.  I know you have a lot on your plate with all the upgrades and other fixes, but could you add this to your list somewhere??

It has always been extremely difficult to do DNA sampling at a high level. High risk = High reward. You'll need to come up with some creative ways to get it done. :)

Sampling isn't bugged, it was always like this, what i used to do, because i dont do bios anymore, is let the creature i wanna sample kill me, rez myself, then use the 30 sec of invulnerability to sample it, that way you cant die and fail. If you are using a luck suit, which i hope you are, make a dress macro, and sample it before the 30 sec of invulnerablility is over. Simple as that!
I dont believe in god, i believe in myself

Thank you so much for the advice Thorgal!  I just sampled (whether failed or succeeded) and never was insta-killed... so it came as a complete shock to me when it happened 3 times in a row... then I gave up thinking it was bugged.  I put in a help request and the GM that responded said they would look into it, so I just assumed it was "not normal."  Then I realized I should have posted it here rather than in game, because I otherwise, I would have no clue when or if it was "fixed."  Anyway, thanks again Kyn and Thorgal for setting me straight!!
