    • Your old pets will be redelivered to you via parcel post so you can get them into the new system.
  • Companions now remain summoned when teleporting.
  • License: Players now receive companion licenses to register a new pet or partner.
    • Multiples of the same companion type can be registered.
    • Pet and Partner icons in inventory now have an image of the companion.
  • Moondrop Fragment: Players can exchange moondrop fragments for a pet license.
  • The story quest, “Thrall Egg,” is granted to level 66+ players and upon completion give players their first partner, Cocomin, with personal storage.
  • Partners have two types of skills:
    • Bond Skill: An active skill with a 3-minute cooldown that improves combat abilities. Bond Skill effects increase as your fellowship with your partner increases.
    • Gifted Skill: A passive skill of buffs including recovery and defense buffs, XP buffs, as well as crafting and gathering buffs. A gifted skill is randomly given to a partner upon registration. The gifted skill activates randomly when the partner is summoned and is more likely to trigger the higher the partner’s stamina.
  • Grade and Fellowship: A partner’s grade and fellowship start at 1 when registered.
    • Grade can increase to 10.
    • Fellowship can increase to 50. Higher fellowship is reached at higher grades.
  • You can change a companion’s name the Companion UI. The first change after registering the companion is free. A Companion Name Change Voucher is needed afterwards.
  • Partner Abilities:
    • Partners generally don’t start with any abilities. Instead, you train your partner to transfer an existing ability from another pet. After the transfer, the transferred ability is removed from the pet and cannot be restored.
    • Partners are more adept than pets with the Auto-Use Potion ability, allowing players to designate specific HP or MP potions to use at specified percentages. Adjust the ability options in the Companion UI.
  • Additional partners can be obtained through combining pets and evolving pets:
    • Pets can be combined for a chance to obtain a new pet or a new partner. The higher the pets’ levels are, the higher the chance of obtaining a partner. The combined pets no longer exist. No abilities are transferred from combined pets in this process.
    • Pets gain XP when they are fed and can level up. You can Evolve a grade 10 pet into a random companion using Evolution Cores. Pet evolution can fail, reducing your pet to grade 9. No abilities are transferred from evolving pets.
  • Pets need food to keep their energy up. Feeding your pets recovers their energy and increases their XP. The XP increased is proportional to the energy recovered.
    • Pet food is obtained through crafting or merchants.
    • Purchase pet food recipes through fishing supplies merchants.
  • Partners need gifts to keep their stamina up. Gifted figurines recover your partner’s stamina. Note that partners are not required to be summoned to give figurine gifts.

    • Purchase gift designs through the processing materials merchants in crafting centers.
