Pets become available when Sanctuary unlocks at team level 40.
Pets help your team in battle. Their main feature is that they cannot be damaged. What's more, their energy bar fills up over time: they can use their main skill once every 15 seconds.
The maximum level for pets is 130, the maximum evolution is six stars, and the maximum rank is Violet+3.
To learn more about a pet, go to Sanctuary, click Pets, and select the desired pet. You will see this screen:
Here you can find:
Skills and patronage
Pets use skills in combat. You can activate the first skill manually when the energy bar fills up; the second skill is used automatically.
Patronage increases the stats of the chosen hero and grants a powerful patronage skill if the pet is at the Violet rank. You can select only one hero to apply patronage. The pet does not have to participate in the battle for patronage to work.
Items required to increase pet rank
Merlin, Oliver, Mara, Axel, and Biscuit need Dawnstones to upgrade the first few ranks.
Fenris, Albus, Cain, and Khorus need Duskstones.
These items can be found in Adventures or purchased with Chaos Particles (you do not have this option from the beginning, it appears after completing a specific Adventure).
Once you put a Stone on the pet, you need to charge it. You can use Chaos Particles, gold, or emeralds for charging. Once you put on and charge all six Stones, you can upgrade the pet's rank.
You can also use a Gift of the Sanctuary to upgrade a pet's rank. This is a special item that promotes any pet you own to the next rank. For example, if your pet is at Violet rank, the Gift of the Sanctuary will upgrade them to Violet+1.
You can use the Gift to grant a rank to any pet of your choice. However, it is more effective to promote a Violet+3-ranked pet. The higher the rank, the more effective the promotion is.
You can get the Gift of the Sanctuary only as a reward in Pet Season. If you do not use the Gift of the Sanctuary by the time Pet Season ends, you will receive it in your in-game mail.
When you collect a Gift of the Sanctuary as a reward in Pet Season, a pop-up window will appear. There, you can select which pet to promote with the Gift of the Sanctuary. You can also close this window and do not collect the Gift of the Sanctuary. In this case, you will receive the Gift in your in-game mail after the Season ends. Once you collect a Gift of the Sanctuary from the letter, it will appear in your Inventory. To find it, check the bottom of the Consumable tab. You can use the Gift anytime; it cannot expire.
If you have collected all available pets and they are already at the max rank, you can exchange the Gift of the Sanctuary for 100,000 emeralds or just wait for new pets and upgrade them.
Pet level and evolution
To level up a pet, you need Pet Potions. You can find them in Adventures, Pet Soul Stone Shop, or get them by completing quests and participating in special events.
To evolve a pet, you need their Soul Stones. You can get them by:
- opening Pet Summoning Eggs;
- completing special event tasks;
- buying in a bundle.
