How can I make my pet stronger?

There are several things you can do to make your pet stronger and more effective:

  • Give your pet weapons and armor
  • Use a pet focus item when summoning your pet
  • Buff your pet with beneficial spells
  • Learn alternate abilities that increase your pet's offense and defense

You will find a lot of additional information under the Pets (Pet Gear and Pet Focus), Skills (Alternate Abilities) and Spells menus.

If you are soloing, a healer mercenary will do a far better job than you can at healing your pet, and thus will enable you to kill much tougher opponents that you could without one.
