A pet is a special type of companion that can be summoned and functions as a Hireling but does not take up any space in the party roster.
Pets have their own Character Sheet. They level-up at the same time as their master and gain Action Points to spend on Enhancements.
Pets have two equipment slots on their character sheet. One slot accepts Collars while the other slot accepts an appropriate piece of armor - for Iron Defenders the slot will accept any Docent, for a Wolf the slot will accept any non-metallic light or medium armor.
- If you're a druid with Heavy Armor Proficiency, your pet can use non-metal heavy armors as well, such as dragonplates.
Pets and equipment with slots
Pets could not use items with a legacy Guild slot, but these have since been removed.
For cosmetic pets, see Creature companion.
