Well, since we're in a state of tranquility at the moment, let's discuss our favorite pet and/or pet that we want to get in the future.
When I started the game I was a huge fan of bunnies and grew very fond of the Moonhare bun buns around the starting area. Caught one and managed to get a Calm-Ferus element one as my first capture outside of tutorial. The little buddy sticked with me for so long I ended up maxing its meld stats (save for defense/resist). While it may not do anything worthy of PvP, he/she still holds a place in my heart. Now if only I could give it a third fuse stat...
A pet that I've been dying to wait for release/availability is the Lamian Huntress. Apparently it was available in the past, but has only been distributed a few times. For a while I've waited until the day I see her available again, but it looks like she's very elusive to being available.
So what's your favorite pet? It doesn't have to be all powerful, just a head's up!
