Update History


Tier 5 Pets


 The Adventurer's faithful companions can now be trained to Tier 5 and also be appointed as Alpha Pets.
You can now train Tier 4 pets up to Tier 5 pets, who will also gain the ability to be appointed as Alpha Pets.

Alpha Pets will keep other pets in your pack in line to make sure they will all work together to aid you in your adventures.
The Alpha Pet's Talent will increase by 1 additional level, and their "Pack Leader" skill will increase the looting speed of all of your other pets nearby.

You can only appoint one Tier 5 pet as the alpha, and any other Tier 5 pets checked out will display the same stats as other Tier 4 pets.

We originally designed the Tier 5 pets to boast a greater variety of skills or effects, akin to an upgraded Tier 4 pet, so to speak.
However, we felt that the process to "upgrade" to a Tier 5 pet would prove too taxing on our Adventurers, so we decided to change the focus to increasing the pet looting speeds.

We bid you happy adventuring with your cute pets and their alpha pack leader.


  • Added Tier 5 Pet Training and Alpha Pets.
    • You can now train Tier 4 pets into Tier 5 pets.
    • Tier 5 pets gain the ability to be appointed as Alpha Pets by the Adventurer.
