What are “eggs”?
An egg is an item that can only be used in the pet yard, and when used will spawn a pet, there are 15 types of eggs.
Eggs are only obtainable through “Pet eggs”, which are dropped in dark blue potion bags by Lesser Gods, Gods of the Realm, Event Gods, Dungeon Bosses, Oryx’s Simulacrum, and Oryx 2.
What are “pets”?
A pet is your characters best friend, it helps you in battle by healing you or dealing damage to foes.
A pet has 3 abilities (second ability is unlocked at uncommon and the third at legendary), there are 14 types of pets and 5 types of rarity.
They do not disappear when you die.
You must feed them in order for them to grow stronger and level up.
To level a pet’s rarity level you must fuse 2 of the same rarity and family.
What is the “pet yard”?
The Pet Yard is where eggs must be hatched, and it can contain up to 50 Pets. Pets are only removed from the yard upon being Released or Fused – they do not leave when you die. The Pet Yard is also the place to feed or fuse Pets. Both functions cost Fame or Gold, at an increasing price which is dependent upon the pet’s rarity level.
What abilities/max levels?
Heal: “Heals you periodically.”
Magic Heal: “Restores your Magic Points periodically.”
Attack Close: “Shoots at any nearby close-range enemies and deals heavy damage.” Range of 3.5 tiles.
Attack Mid: “Shoots at any nearby mid-range enemies and deals medium damage.” Range of 6.75 tiles.
Attack Far: “Shoots at any nearby far-range enemies and deals light damage.” Range of 9 tiles.
Electric: “This attack has a chance of paralyzing your foes.” Affects enemies between 2 tiles to .35 tiles.
Decoy: “Enemies will aim at your pet instead of you.”
Rising Fury: “Your pet will charge an attack when you stay still, and release a area burst when you move.”
Savage: “Increases the effect of attack and eletric abilities.”
Feeding and fusing!
Items contain a “Feed Power”, shown in their description, with higher numbers meaning that the item will increase a Pet’s levels more. It is advisable to use higher feed power items when possible, as it costs Fame or Gold each time a Pet is fed. Food items can also be bought in the Nexus, whose only use is to feed Pets.
Fusing pets is only possible when the two pets used are of the same family and rarity, and as long as the Pet Yard has been upgraded to a high enough level to allow for it. The pet on the left and its stats will be retained while fusing, while the other will be consumed and disappear from the Pet Yard. It is best to max both pet’s stats before fusing, otherwise it will have a lower stat cap once fused. Fusing will give a random pet of the next rarity level. Below is a breakdown of the respective costs. “Fusion Strength” is a measure of how maxed the two pets being used are.
|Rarity Level||Pet Yard update||Feeding cost||Fusing cost|
|Common||–||10(fame) or 5(gold)||300(fame) or 100(gold)|
|Uncommon||500(fame) or 150(gold)||30(fame) or 12(gold)||1000(fame) or 240(gold)|
|Rare||2000(fame) or 400(gold)||100(fame) or 30(gold)||4000(fame) or 600(gold)|
|Legendary||25000(fame) or 1200(gold)||350(fame) or 60(gold)||15000(fame) or 1800(gold)|
|Divine||50000(fame) or 2000(gold)||1000(fame) or 150(gold)||–|
Fusing unmaxed pets!
Pet rarity corresponds to common, uncommon, rare, legendary, and divine, while ability level corresponds to the the level of things such as heal, attack, paralyze, etc. When increasing the pet’s rarity level, their ability level will not be affected. However, the ability levels’ stat caps can increase, the next ability can be unlocked, and the pet may look different depending on the rarity level.
For example, a divine pet with the heal ability at level 30 will heal 14 hp, just the same as a common pet at heal level 30. The only difference is that the pet looks different and has a higher maxed stat cap.
At higher rarity levels, it is more costly to feed a pet. Coupled with this, feed power is less effective at higher ability levels, as 500 feed power may raise a low leveled ability several levels, yet hardly do much at the higher ability levels. Because of this, it is advantageous to level up at a lower rarity level until max, and then fuse as it is easier and more cost efficient to level up at the lower rarity levels.
So in a nutshell: DO NOT FUSE UNMAXED PETS
Q:”I fused 2 unmaxed pets, what do i do?”
A: Sadly you can’t do nothing, you will have to make 2 more.
Q:”Why can’t I hatch my (e.g rare) egg?”
A: Your pet yard needs to be on a higher level or you have reached the pet limit
