Onyx Panther

From DDO wiki

Onyx Panther
Figurine of Wondrous Power- Onyx Panter.png

Name: Onyx Panther

Race: Panther

Gender: Female

Attack[edit]

Qualities[edit]

Onyx Panther is a special Fighter hireling - pet that players will receive if they pre-ordered the collectors edition of Menace of the Underdark. Each character receives this bonus. This hireling contract goes into hireling contract folder if a character owns one. Unlike other hireling contracts, it never expires.

Onyx Panther is a level 20 Gold Seal hireling. She can be used at level 18 and later. Note that her high level might affect quest experience.

She is treated as a Gold Seal hireling for a couple of purposes:

  • This affects Dungeon Scaling like any Gold Seal hireling (i.e., less than an extra player or regular hireling).
  • This also allows you to summon her anywhere in any dungeon - but not raids.
  • The panther acts as a party member, and takes up a party slot.

Unlike all other hirelings, multiple party members can summon their own panther.

The Onyx Panther is a level 20 fighter.

In all respects, it is treated as a Gold Seal hireling, except that the contract (the figurine used to summon it) has an unlimited duration. The figurine can be stored in a Hireling Contract Folder.

The Onyx Panther (or Battle Cat, as we like to call it) has, among other effects, Manslayer (vorpal vs. Humanoids), Improved Destruction, and Tendon Slice 10%.

Because, really, how could we make a giant panther and not give it Manslayer? It was too awesome an opportunity to pass up.

The Panther has a number of "useful items" equipped, including ability score bonuses. (And deathblock, and heavy fortification, and a few other "standard adventuring items".)

Trivia[edit]

  • This panther is a reference to Drizzt Do'Urden's panther named Guenhwyvar which he summons from a small statue.
