Venomancer's Pet Skills Tame Pet
The Tame skill is used to capture monsters as pets. Weaken the monster to low HP and perform the Tame spell. The lower the monster's HP, the higher the probability the Tame will be successful. Every 10 levels this spell can be upgraded to improve the chance of a successful tame by 5%.
Tame-able monsters will have an icon next to their name:
Green means the monster is easy to tame. Yellow means the monster is harder to tame. Red means your Venomancer's level is too low to tame the monster.
During battle a pet might receive damage from an enemy and therefore will need healing if the HP drops too low. It is important the pet does not die, as upon each death the loyalty of the pet drops by 20%. The Heal Pet skill can be upgraded every 10 levels in order to increase the amount of HP healed and reduce the channeling and cooldown.
In the instance that the pet does die, it must be resurrected before it can be called back to battle again. The Revive Pet skill will bring the pet back to life and enable to the pet to be called onto the battlefield. This skill can be upgraded every 10 levels to reduce the Mana cost. To revive multiple pets, the Venomancer will have to use Revive Pet multiple times.
Raising Pets - Loyalty Pet bag can be accessed by pressing P or from here:
Once a pet is hatched and summoned, it must be fed in order to prevent the pet's loyalty from dropping, and to ensure that the loyalty increases. Different pets eat different families of food, while specific kinds of food within those families will raise the pet's loyalty by greater or lesser amounts. The families are: Meat, Water, Hay, Fruit, and Greens. Basic pet food can be bought from the Pet Manager. One can be found in every big city. Additionally, you can make Perfect Cookies using Tokens of Luck. Perfect Cookies can be fed to every pet (with the exception of the evolved Windwalking Piggy) and raise their Loyalty by 200 points.
Buying and equipping a Mystical Tome will keep your pet fed forever. Then you won't need to feed your pet anymore, unless it dies and loses Loyalty.
To find out how loyal your pet is, hover over its icon in your pet window.
There are 4 tiers of loyalty for your pet:
Name Loyalty Dmg EXP
Savage 0 - 50 60% 10%
Wild 51 - 150 80% 50%
Tame 151 - 500 100% 100%
Loyal 501+ 120% 150%
When your pet dies, it loses 10% of its current Loyalty.
Buying and Upgrading Pet Skills Pets, when tamed, come with a set of skills. Four is the maximum number of skills one pet can have. Obviously, not all skills the pets come with suit everyone's playing style and sometimes adding new skills or deleting old ones to add new ones is essential for the performance of the pet.
Pet skills can be brought from two NPCs located in Archosaur, Mrs Zoologist (587 620) and Mr Zoologist (586 649). The latter is underwater and is commonly used to teach water pets skills, because water pets can only be summoned underwater. Prices of the pet skills are between 150,000 coins to 300,000 coins depending on the skill. Pet skills can also be bought in the Auction House (sold by other players) and I highly recommend it as you will often find the pet skills for a lower price than those at the Mrs Zoologist.
Pet skills can be upgraded every 20 levels and there are 5 levels in total, with the exception of few specific skills.Therefore, the core levels for upgrading pet skills are level 1, 20, 40, 60 and 80. In order to upgrade a pet's skill a Tame Book is required. A tame book can be bought at any Zoologist for 200,000 coins. An important note here is that there are pets who appear to have skills that normally their level range wouldn't allow them to have. Such pet is the Lunar Wolf that comes with Howl level 5 despite being below level 80.
If one wishes to remove an existing skill from a pet, a Forget Scroll is required. A forget scroll can be bought at any Zoologist for 100,000 coins.

Usually players will put them in the Auction House for sale but be aware that these skills are expensive and prices can be between 5 million to 20 million coins.
