How to Tame Pets
Taming a pet requires pet food. To tame the pet, equip the pet food in the pet inventory slot and approach the untamed pet.
Each pet has a favourite food and will only respond to its favourite food. Pet food can be bought from Item Shops. The availability of various kinds of pet food will vary from town to town. Pet food can also be obtained from monsters. The player can only carry one of each pet food.
Taming a pet in the presence of other pets will turn the untamed pets hostile.

Types of Pet
There are four pet interaction types:
- Melee – Will attack foes hand-to-hand
- Ranged – Will attack foes from afar
- Tank – Will sustain foes attacks
- Healer – Will heal the player
By far, the most common pet type is melee. All pets not mentioned in the following table are melee.
Mounting and Riding
Some pets can be mounted and ridden.
To ride a mountable pet, they must first have one point the Riding skill. The pet can then be ridden by interacting with it. Performing an attack will dismount the pet.
While riding, a pet’s thirst meter will deplete. The thirst meter can be refilled by standing in water. A pet with an empty thirst meter cannot be ridden.
