(This post was originally titled “List of Actually Useful Pets” but folks got hung up on the word “Useful”, so I changed it to “Functional”, as a more accurate description of what I was going for… )
I’m not much into cosmestic (i.e. non-functional) pets. Interestingly, the game actually provides pets that have an in-game effect (i.e. functional) via items and skills. I found a few and I’m hoping to list them all here for everyone’s reference. Then everyone can have a functional pet of their choice!
Please contribute in comments & I’ll update the list. Please state what it summons too, as I may not have the item.
- Bovine Bardiche: 1 x Ghostly Cow King + 3 x Ghostly Murderous Cows
- Puzzle Ring: 1 x Treasure Goblin (normal-to-rare item converter)
- Nagelring: 4 x Fallen Lunatics
- Skycutter: 1 x Angel
- Genzaniku: 1 x Ghostly Fallen Overseer
- Maximus: 1 x Oppressor (with fire chain link)
- Haunt of Vaxo: 1(?) x Shadow Clone
- Corrupted Ashbringer: 5 x Skeletons
- Golden Gorget of Leoric: 6 x Skeletons
[will work on this later…]
