Pets have been introduced on 20 June 2013 Maintenance. An update followed on 22 August 2013 Maintenance introducing Monster Island Map, Pet Auction House and increasing the amount of items that can be fed to pets.
Here is a good guide in official forum.
Monster Island is accessible from Miladiel Galaron at Hellgate in Infernus. On the Monster Island there is Monster's Lair (a place where players can get pets), Colosseum (an upcoming feature), Beast Master's Post (with Antonia the Town Mayor), Pet Auction House (where players can trade pets) and Coliseum of Enlightenment (which works like a Marketplace at the moment).
Monter's Lair is the place where players can get pet cards. Players can access the following "dungeons": Forbidden Lands at level 60, Dawn Cliff at level 70, Boundless Laputan at level 80, Howling Dungeon at level 90, Sunset Abyss at level 100, Frozen Cemetery at level 110, Forgotten Passage at level 120 and Doom Sea at level 130. Each day a player starts with one dungeon key for those pet dungeons (a VIP player has two at their disposal). One key is required to enter a dungeon. Players can buy more keys at 10 gold each - however with the extremely low droprate in the instances it is not worth the gold.
There is currently a glitch which allows extra island hopping. If you end the day on the level 60 island, you can explore it again the next day without using a key. This leaves an extra key free to explore either the level 70 island, or the level 60 island again.
Orange pets have souls which need to be collected separately. When a soul is collected it is added to your collection book.
The pet can gain experience by feeding (as described below) and level up to increase its stats.
|Level||Experience Required to next level|
Attribute is similar to hero specialty.
Pet qualities are as follow (currently confirmed):
- Red (can be obtained through exchange shop or transmutation)
Higher quality pets can be collected by breeding pets using Breed Stones.
Orange Pet Souls are collected directly to Collection Book.
Rabid Wolf Soul ulocks 4th entry in Collection Book: Rabid Wolf: Attack Aptitude 36~80, Defense Aptitude 33~63, Agility Aptitude 47~66, Vitatlity Aptitude 34~78. The biography says: "Rabid Wolves are a kind of wild wolves which live in hill zone. Different from other wild wolves, they prefer acting alone to living in groups. Looking into the dark night, are their jewel-like mysterious eyes glowing with danger and brightness."
Pets have stats like Heroes and Equipment. Attack, Defense, Agility, and Vitality.
This is the multiplier which is applied to the pets stats when equipped by a hero. Once pet is equipped by a hero, the amount of stats added to hero is as follows: Hero Stat with Pet = Hero Stat without Pet + Pet Stat * Multipler. The table below shows available Boost levels, their corresponding Multipler value and the chance to increase the Boost value, explained below.
|Boost||Multiplier||Taming Chance||Extra for ensure||Note|
|1||0.3||100%||Base boost for white pets|
|2||0.35||95%||Base boost for blue pets|
|3||0.4||90%||Base boost for purple pets|
|4||0.45||85%||Base boost for orange pets|
|5||0.5||80%||Base boost for red pets|
For example for Boost level 1, if a pet has Attack 10, the hero gains +3 Attack when the pet is equipped. The chance to increase the Boost level with Taming is 95%.
Players can increase their pet's Boost by Taming the pet using Taming Whip (add item color). To Tame a pet, it cannot be equipped by any hero. Chance of successfuly taming a pet is decreased the higher the level of pet's boost is. Succesful Taming increases the pet's Boost value. Failed Taming decreases the pet's Boost value, which can be prevented by using an extra Taming Whip (add item color). The amount of additional Taming Whips required to keep the Boost value of a pet increases with Boost level.
About skills nothing is known at this time.
Pets deployement works very like the hero one. You can find formation tome chapters for pets in Monster Island or from events and transmuted by transmutation master.
For each stat, pets also have Aptitude. Aptitude has a Current Value and a Maximum Value. The amount of stats gained by pet upon leveling up is dependant on aptitude and boost. Currently the formula for stat gain is still speculated, and requires more tests. However, based on inital data it may be as follows: Stat gain by pet upon leveling up = (Boost + 0,05) * Current Aptitude
