Pets, or NosMates, are a key part of NosTale gameplay! They can be used as tanks in PvE, help you with stuns and various debuffs and some of them can even give you different buffs while they're with you! Disclaimer: Location of items like event trainers or even rates of success/failure/downgrade could be changed in the future with custom patches, the guide contains the original server informations and will be modified if any change is applied in the VGN server. In the red box you can see the effects the pet can apply, they can apply on each attack received/dealt, meaning that in this case Fibi could mitigate attacks received by 90% 10 times in a row or keep someone frozen forever~ The right screenshot is an example of Pet buff, not many pets give buffs so it's usually better to get a pet with a buff you like when choosing your main little helper. In the green box we can see the reason of this guide! Attack and defence levels. Unlike for equipment or specialists, pet attack and defence levels can only be increased with special "training dummies". Pet training can only be done in your miniland. The attack level can increase by attacking said dummies a certain number of times depending on the attack level, while defence can increase by receiving a certain amount of hits from them, depending on the defence level. There are 3 kinds of trainers: Pet trainer, sold by Eva Energy in Nosville, they have low attack and low HP. Stats: They can survive for 610 seconds if not attacked. They can attack 430 times before death (if not attacked). They have very low HP, so they're mostly indicated to increase Defence levels. Advanced pet trainer, can be obtained from all monsters from act 2 onwards or obtained as quest rewards. Stats: Their attack and HP values are higher than the base trainer, making them perfect for attack levels training. They can survive for 2400 seconds (if not attacked). They can attack 4000 times (if not attacked). And finally, event trainers, their stats are similar to the Advanced trainer, but a failure in training with them won't decrease the attack/def levels of the pet regardless of the outcome, so they're the best bet to try and upgrade your pet Def levels to +8/+9. They can be obtained in events such as the summer pirate raid or the easter event raid and considering their usefullness they're usually pricey on the in game market. Now some data about training! When training a pet there are 3 possible outcomes: Success, the attack or defence level will be increased by 1 Failure, nothing will happen and the hit counter will be reset. Downgrade, the attack or defence level will be decreased by 1. (Note: Precise % of success/failure/downgrade are unknown but the chance of downgrade increases noticeably after + 5) Depending on the statistic level, the pet has to hit/get hit a certain number of times before knowing the outcome: +1 : 50 hits +2 : 100 hits +3 : 150 hits +4 : 200 hits +5 : 250 hits +6 : 300 hits +7 : 350 hits +8 : 400 hits +9 : 450 hits +10 : 500 hits Note: The hit counter does not reset when you stop, for example if your pet has def +5 and was hit 180 times before you stopped, the next time you will need only 120 hits before knowing the outcome and resetting the hit counter. Training Strategies Attack: What to use: Advanced pet trainer Low level pet (advised to train the pet attack at level 1 or lower than 20 since strong pets can deal lots of damage even at low levels). Can't stress that enough, train your pet when his level is low or it's going to be painful later on, and the attack level can make a pretty huge difference when the pet level reaches 85/90. Strategy: Get in the lower level of the miniland, where there is a lot of space, and keep the pet you want to train away from you. Release a SINGLE advanced pet trainer and catch his aggro right away with skills that deal no damage, like the Warrior SP pull, the assassin smoke bomb or the holy mage skill that can hit only undead monsters, this way the trainer will start attacking you and the pet won't risk death at any time even if it's only level 1. When you're sure the trainer is attacking you and you're as close as possible to the trainer, press f1/f3 to control the pet and start attacking the trainer with him. (If you're not close enough to the trainer there's a chance that the pet will get closer and get hit instead of you). Patience and pop corns. Repeat until you're satisfied with the pet attack level. I advise stopping only when the pet attack reaches at least + 5/6, since as i said it's going to be really difficult to upgrade attack at levels higher than 60, a strong pet can 1/2hit even advanced trainers. Defence: What to use: Basic pet trainer High level pet, if the pet is still around level 50/60 it's still advised to have a mage/holy mage with you to heal him if needed since the poor little thing is going to get swarmed by trainers. Defence level is the most important part since you're going to use your pet as a tank most of the time, but unlike attack, it's "easier" to increase defence, not because of success rates (they're the same for both stats) but because you can just spam a bunch of trainers, sit back and just wait for them to expire or stop when you reach the level you were going for. Of course multiple trainers also means faster hits, aka more tries in less time. Strategy: Move to the lower level of the miniland, where you have more space. Move the pet in a spot far from the borders of the map (at least 1 or 2 cells). Press S to put the pet in idle mode , this way, he won't attack the trainers and stand still. Move on the same cell of your pet and release 8/12 basic trainers, they will be released around you and attack the first pet they find in their range, so you will be sure that all of them will be attacking the pet. (Releasing 12 is possible but there's also the chance that some of them will move out of range, moving away other trainers and slowing down the process, so it's advised to use 8/9 at a time). Sit back and relax, keep an eye on the chat to know when you succeed/fail/downgrade and kill all the trainers when you get to the defence level you wanted so you won't risk downgrading if they keep hitting the pet. Considering defence level is more important and basic trainers are cheap, it's advised to take your pet defence to +7 and then wait for event trainers to try for +8/9. Don't get frustrated if it keeps failing and just keep trying \o/ it's going to be worth the effort! Tips: It's not advised to go afk while training your pet, since there's the chance that you will succeed on a high stat level and then downgrade in the next one, so keep an eye on your pet! Upgrade your pet attack when his level is 1~10, it's not worth getting a pet to level 80 if it's attack is +0~4 Upgrade your pet defence when his level is 65+ so he's not likely to die and lose the trainers aggro. Good luck with your pets!
