Destiny Online features a remarkable Pet system. You can capture any monster in the wilderness and turn it into your beloved pet. They will assist you in combat and accompany you exploring the world of Destiny Online.
If you summon forth a pet to help you in a fight, it will obtain some EXP every time you kill a monster. Like heroes, if a pet has enough EXP, it will level up and get some bonus points that you can assign to different pet attributes.
Initially you are only allowed to carry 4 pets with you but if you give some Pet Cages to Pet Doctor Heather in Golden Plume City, she might help you expand your pet space up to 10.
How to Capture a Pet
1) Buy a Fairy Rope from a Grocer or your Class Mentor's Aid and drag it from your Backpack to the Quickbar at the bottom of the window.
2) Beat a monster which you wish to turn into a pet until it only has a little HP left.

Like a hero, a pet has five basic attributes, Vitality, Spirit, Intelligence, Strength and Stamina, to which you can assign level-up bonus points. They will affect pet's HP, MP and fight ability such as PA, PD, MA, MD, Hit, Dodge and Critical Hit. Pet's Loyalty also affects its fight attributes. To maintain the pet's morale, please keep its Loyalty high by using Pet forage or visiting a Pet Doctor. Two pets of the same level, however, might be different in fighting abilities because their attributes are generated at random when you capture them.
Pet's Fighting Attributes
HP: indicates the health status of the pet. If a pet's HP drops to 0, it will die. You can increase a pet's HP by distributing its Lvl-up bonus points to Vitality.
MP: Essential to skill practicing. You can increase MP by adding bonus points to Spirit.
PA: The ability to inflict physical damage on the enemy. The higher it is, the more damage your pet will cause. You can increase PA by adding more points to Strength.
PD: The ability to resist physical attack from the enemy. The higher it is, the less physical damage your pet will receive. You can increase PD by adding more points to Stamina.
MA: The ability to inflict magic damage to the enemy. The higher it is, the more damage your pet will cause.
MD: The ability to resist magic attack from the enemy. The higher it is, the less magic damage your pet will receive.
Besides ordinary pets, there are some special “Monster Babes" hidden in the world of Destiny Online. Their attributes are comparatively higher than that of the ordinary ones. What's more, when you capture them, they start from Level 0. Therefore, you can cultivate them in any way you like. You can use Juvenescent Dew to reset an ordinary pet to Level 0 and randomly change its aptitudes and skills. If you team up with other players and summon forth your pet, it will receive extra EXP from your teammates' training. You can also use some EXP-adding items such as Advanced Manual and Basic Manual to help your pets grow rapidly.
Lifespan and Loyalty will be decreased.
When you summon it again, its HP and MP will be half of the maximum.
There is no decline in pet's EXP.
