Here are the class skills.
There are multiple ways to obtain pets.
The first way to obtain a pet, and is the most basic, is the capture feature. You can use this by clicking the capture button then click on a monster, in an outdoor map, that you are currently battling.
There are multiple Grades or levels of pets. There is white (lowest grade), then green then blue then gold(highest grade).
The next way to obtain pets is from flip cards in instances or dungeons. If you want to check if the map you are on has an instance, or dungeon, then click on the map and it will tell you if there is an instance. The dot for an instance will be red and state the instance level.
Clear a dungeon to get a chance at an egg of the bosses in that dungeon. Alot of luck is required in this. For the sewer instance there were two bosses so in the flip card there were two boss eggs. As you can see I was not lucky enough to get a pet egg.
Pet eggs can be found in events, sign-in rewards, achievement rewards and other time-limited events.
Ancient Forbidden Path
The last boss of each floor in Ancient Forbidden Path carries a dragon pet egg. Grab it if you can!
To upgrade your pet or to equip new skills you need to click on the boost button in your main toolbar on the lower right hand side of the game.
There are multiple functions here so I will explain them in order.
The first function is Pet Synth.
Pet Synth allows you to upgrade the quality of your pet, this upgrading the stats of your pet. You do this by using 4 pet subs that are of the color of your current pet. White pets need white pet subs to upgrade the quality to that of a green pet. You can win pet subs from instances or events. If you gather up 10 pet subs, of a lower quality, you can exchange it for a pet sub of a higher quality form the pet item
Click on the pet master
Click Redeem pet sub
Then you can choose which sub you need.
The next function to be explained is Pet Star
This function allows you to upgrade the stats of your pet by using star pet stones. There are 3 types and they correspond with the amount of stars it can upgrade to. Each time you attempt to upgrade a star it will add half a star.
The most common found in instances for killing monsters or in chests is the low star pet stone. This allows you to upgrade your pet star to a maximum of 4. It requires more Pet star stones for each star level you wish to upgrade.
The next pet star stone is the Moon Pet Stone. This allows you to upgrade a pet from 1 star to 7 stars and is required to level your pet past 4 stars. Like the Star Pet Stone is required more of the item for each star you wish to put on. This is found rarely in chests and is found from the daily quest given by the pet master.
The last Pet Star Stone is the Sun Pet Stone. This stone allows you to upgrade your pet to a maximum of 10 stars which the limit on pet star upgrading. This stone can be obtained by buying it from the pet shop.
The next function is Pet Talent. This also raises the stats of your pet. You can increase the talents with a talent boost potion or unbound ingots.
The talent boost potion can be obtained from the instance flip cards, some chests have a certain drop rate for them, or from the Mall using bound ingots or from exorcism.
The exorcism function can be found near the top of the screen right next to the map. You have a chance of receiving the talent boost potion from here.
The next function is Pet Skill Equip. This function allows you to choose and replace your pets skills. Depending on which pet you have will limit its skills range. There are also general skills for every pet that you can equip. Any pet skills that states passive on it, will not need to be activated during battle.
The pet types are as follows: Plant, Animal, Machine, Doll, Elf and Dragon.
You can obtain pet skills from Chests found on flip cards at the end of instances, from the top 2 escorts, the item mall, and you can get a low pet skill from the online gift claim.
A pet skill chest looks like this. I didn’t have one in my inventory so I got a picture of one from the market.
You can buy pet skills from your specific type of pet from the mall. You can find it on your toolbar at the bottom of the game screen.
Here is where you can find the pet section in the mall.
The pet skills are located on the 2nd and 3rd page. You can also get pet skills for a certain type of pet from heroic instance end flip cards.
You can upgrade a pet skill by getting another pet skill book of one you already have and use it.
The next function is Resistance.
This allows you to reduce the damage from poison or fire or any negative Damage over Time debuff. It also allows you to reduce the chance of your pet getting stunned or petrified or any other negative debuff. You can get the items for upgrading resistance from the mall.
The next Function is Inheritance. This is useful if you have done alot of work with a pet but then get a new one that you want to use. You put the pet that you want to use as the main pet and the pet that you want to transfer the stats from as the Secondary pet. This will transfer the quality, resistance, and some of the stats from the secondary pet to the main pet.
When you do use this, it will not be perfect. You will lose some stars and some stats but most of it will be transferred to your new pet that you want to use.
The next function is the Pet Guide function. Any pet you have in your inventory gives you a low pet pill. You press instant to get the pill then press claim to put it in your bag. This is used for upgrading your bloodline which is the next function covered. It also servers as a guide for the pets in the game, telling you what the pet is good for / excels at.
The last function on the pet boost area is the Bloodline function. This function gives your pet better stats. It works on all pets and has multiple levels.
You can upgrade each one for the first level with one low pet pill.
It costs one low pet pill for each star. It works on level 0 and 1 bloodlines. For level 2-3 bloodlines you need a medium pet pill. For level 4-5 bloodlines you need an Advanced Pet pill. For level 6-7 bloodlines you need a super pet pill. For level 8-9 bloodlines you need a holy pet pill.
To upgrade or awaken a star you need to press the awaken button located here.
You can synthesize higher grade pet pills by having 5 pet pills of a lower grade. You synthesize a pet pill you need to press the synthesize button above the awaken button. Once pressed it brings to to this screen where it shows you the progression of pill synthesizing.
To heal your pet outside of battle you need to press the pet button on the toolbar.
It will bring up a screen with the pets you have in your inventory. It should looko like this.
From there press use item. It will bring up a window with all usable items that will work on your pet.
Select the potion you want to use on your pet, whether healing for MP or HP. This press use. This will make the potion you selected to be used on your pet.
If you want to switch between pets or release a pet you do not want then open up your pet screen. Select a pet. To switch a pet in and out of battle first select the pet you want to use in battle and press battle which is underneath the pet image. IF you do not wish to use a pet in battle select the pet you are currently using in battle and press rest. If you want to discard a pet. Select the pet and press released. These buttons are located under the pet image here.
The last two things I am going to talk about are royalty and pet home.
Pet home is a guild pet farm located here. It will put your pet in the farm for 8 hours and give is a major amount of EXP. It should level it to the level of your character.
If you press that button it will bring up this screen.
As you can see I am allowed to feed the pets for guild donation points. You can select the pet you want to put in as long as it is not in battle with you by pressing foster. It will bring up a screen like so.
Select the pet you wish to use and press foster. Then go back in 8 hours and collect your pet.
The last thing I wish to talk about is royalty. If your pet drops below, I believe it is, 50 royalty it may not use it skills in battle and if it drops lower it will attack other players in your party. You can check the royalty here.
To increase your royalty you can spend one ingot or use a pet royalty potion. The potions can be bought from the pet master. All you do is click on her then press let me check your goods and you will be shown the royalty shop.
To purchase the royalty potion just click on it and adjust the number to that of how many you wish to buy then press buy.
Toy restore your pet royalty just click where it shows the royalty of the pet and it will use the potion. If you don’t have any it will ask if you would like to restore it using 1 unbound ingot. Remember to keep your royalty up!Other Tales of Laputa Articles
