During the maintenance of January 16th, 2013 we received the new Pet System! Some people are confused on some of the mechanics of the system and I'm here to help explain it some.
To begin to use your best friend and partner in crime, you must first complete the 'Lv25 Combat Skill' quest.
To start off, there are 3 grades of pet, White (common), Green (alpha), and Blue (Prime). White pets receive 1 battle ability, but no pray ability, they can help in battles as they go, or pick up that lovely little box on the ground. Green pets receive 1 battle ability and 1 pray ability, they can either be used as your partner in crime or the boost you need. Blue pets receive 1 battle ability and 2 pray abilities
, both pray abilities will effect you at the same not, not you pick one!
The Advancement UI!
- 1 - Pet list : This is the list of how many pets are in your pet UI, the most you can have is 10 pets!
- 2 - Seal Locked : This allows you to extract your pet from the pet UI, it also keeps their progress so you can archive to change them to a different character! You have to pay 10 gold to Seal them and the pet must not have any pet equipment on!!
- 3 - Pet Info : The pet info shows you what the pet looks like, battle and pray abilities, and what its stats are!
-Pet stats; we have P-ATK/M-ATK, ACC, P-CRIT/M-CRIT, and ATK SPEED. P-ATK/M-ATK determines how much damage your pet does, just as the same for us. ACC effects how often they hit another person or mob. P-CRIT/M-CRIT effects how often they crit attack, the sad part is the CRIT DMG/ M-CRIT DMG is set at 1.50 and can't be effected. Finally ATK SPEED effects how fast your pet kills the other. The Pet System uses the same basis as our combat mechanics, but the sad part is that the Pet System does not show a percentage on how often they will hit or crit.
-Pet Battle Abilities : When you call your partner to battle, you'll get your pet hot key bar back! When the hot key bar is up, you can select him to either battle with you, or loot your booty! If you choose to battle, click on the skill and your pet will use that skill while it fights. This is the only way your pets will lose Energy!
-Pet Pray Abilities : You have the option of your pet to pray on you, which means they will bless you with their abilities! If you have a Clever Papillion, you will receive 5% cast speed (Empathy) if they pray you.
- 4 - Pet Lunch Box : That's right! You can feed your pets again if you couldn't before you can now! Just click your pet food and place it in and click on feed!
- 5 - Pet Command : This allows you to tell your pet what to do, or if what you want to do with it!
- Rest : If your pet is in battle, or praying, you can use the Rest button to allow it to stop, and it will go back into its little fuzzy home hidden in the pet UI.
- Battle : This allows you to bring your pet outside of its house and loot or battle.
- Advance : this allows you to upgrade you pet to a 1 star or 2 star pet, it also increases their pet stat grade, and allows you to try to mix up abilities!
- Pray : Allows your pet to set its effects on you.
- Seal : Not available fully yet! This part allows you to remove your pet with your pet gear equiped.
- Rename : This is just like before, you need a Pet Name Tag (ever think about trying Tactics as a name btw?), the only difference is you cannot use symbols anymore *Cries*.
- 6 - Current Pet you're looking at and what level it is.
- 7 - Pet EXP bar : tells you how much EXP its at and how much it needs
- a1 - Primary Pet : shows you which pet that you're going to use, this will be your pet that's consuming the secondary.
- a2 - Secondary pet : shows you which pet you are selecting to be consumed by the primary
- a3 - Pet selection list : allows you to select which pet you want to merge with the primary
- a4 - Bonus Item : not available yet!
To addition to the rules, Green grade pets will receive only 1 ability, Blue grade pets will receive 2 (If i am wrong please correct me) pray abilities. The abilities will be selected at random.
Pet stat grading!
There are 6 noticeable grades right now. D, D+, C, C+, B, and B+; B+ being the best, much like the grading scales in school. Each pet stat is graded based on what the pet is, and how many stars it has from Advancement.
Note: if anyone has a A or A+ Grade stat on pet please show me!
As some of us saw before the patch-in, we were receive pet toy boxes from Legion Elites in the maps Valley of Kings and lower. The Pet Toy Boxes will give you necklaces based off of the level of the zone you got the Pet Toy Box off of. The highest level pet equipment is level 70
as far as i'm aware!
Pet Weapons can be purchased from <Arena Merchant> Maru! These cost Honor stars so if you want more damage on your pet, you might wanna save! She also sells pets for Honor Stars too!

Now that pets can be upgraded to 4 star pets, i think i'll add a list of the new skills and effects!
How to get a 4 star pet:
In order for you to obtain and get a 3rd skill, you must upgrade a pet to 4 stars. You can only get a pet to 4 stars by using 16 pets total and fusing them together as pets go up.
- No star pets can only be fused with a no star pet
- 1 star pets can only be fused with a 1 star pet
- 2 Star pets can only be fused with 2 star pets
- 3 star pets can only be fused with 3 star pets
You can get a S-Rank stat + 3rd skill. I don't know why some players aren't getting a 3rd skill, it may be part of the mechanics, i would have to ask a GM (or another would) if it's a glitch or if it's not working properly.
It's also been confirmed for a "S+" Stat rank as well.

- Pet Food!
Pet food can either be purchased from the In-Game Item Mall, or as a reward from the Alpaca Token Event. You can receive Copper, Silver, or Gold Alpaca tokens from doing repeats in various maps.
This item restores your pets Energy back to full!
- Pet Upgrade Food!
This item was first acquired during the 2012 Eden Eternal Christmas Event via the Present that you received from helping kill Nasty Clause, or turning in Appreciative Gifts into the Event NPC to get a Present.
This item instant increases your pet to your current level, I.E if you are level 75, and your pet is lv23, your pet will instantly go to level 75.
Note: There is no possible way to receive this item right now!!
- Pet Name Tags!
This item allows you to change the Name of your Pets! The only change is now you cannot use symbols (< > / \ ] [ etc) in your pets names Ironically, pets that already have symbol characters in their names, and that were not equipped when the system was updated in (such as your pet was already in your inventory, or archive), its name was not affected and keeps its symbol characters.
