The Best Pet Talents for PvP
There’s no doubt about it: pets have an undeniable impact on PvP. A pet on a healing frenzy can alter the tempo, or an added may cast pet blade can influence the outcome of a match. Whether we love them or hate them, it’s a fact that our comrades in battle play an important role in PvP, sometimes contributing more significant stats than any other single piece of gear.
Which pet talents are most important to you in PvP will depend on your level, your playstyle, and your school strengths and deficits. Which are your Top Pet Talents for Wizard101 PvP? Do you have a favorite talent for PvP that we haven’t listed here? Let us know in the comments!
Top Ten Talents
for your “Über Pet”
1. Spell Proof
Universal Resist. You want it. The end. At a maximum of 10% resist, Proof takes some of the sting out of any and every attack, making this an easy choice for our top spot. For many players, “Proof” is considered a must-have on their PvP pet.
2. Fairy Friend
Healing a whopping +450 per cast, Fairy Friend activates when damage is taken by either team. Add in a player’s healing boost, and you end up with a potential game-changer every time it casts, especially since this is one of the most active healing talents in the game.
3. The “Dealers”
The Level 78 Pets introduced new damage talents that can increase school-specific damage up to 9%: Balance Dealer, Storm Dealer, Death Dealer, and so on. Imagine having a 9% blade on your wizard for each and every attack. If you cultivate damage pets for an offensive playstyle, your school’s Dealer talent is a great option.
4. Incredibly Infallible
With the Jade Empire rising and resists going higher and higher, many players are boosting Pierce stats to cut through all of those defenses out there. With this talent, your pet’s “May Cast Infallible” provides an aura that increases accuracy and pierce for 5 rounds. The May Cast Auras are active too, activating from just about any move you make, including passing and reshuffling.
“May Cast Sprite” is a classic pet talent available on many first-generation pets. The pet Sprite heals for 50+300 over 3 rounds and is useful for breaking infections. It activates whenever you or your opponents’ team take damage, making this one of the best may cast heals in the game besides Fairy Friend.
6. Spell Defy
Spell Proof’s little brother, Defy, adds 5% universal Resist to your stats and is another talent considered by many to be a “must-have”. In an increasingly resist-obsesssed world, Defy is a small, but useful, brick in the fortress.
7. May Cast “Blades”
Pets that give a school-specific blade such as FireBlade, MythBlade, etc. can boost their owner’s offense without wasting a turn. These may casts are perfect for players who like to go on offensive combos so they can deal extra damage and close out a match.
8. Pain Giver
As some players dig into resist-based strategies, others look for talents that help power through those walls of armor. Pain-giver, especially if developed in combination with other aggressive talents, is a popular choice for those seeking an aggressive set-up.
A solid one-shot heal, and a potential game-changer in team matches, Unicorn is another talent players love to toss onto the may-cast pile, along with Sprite and Fairy. This one is also favored by those who like to keep minions out, since the team heal can create real headaches for the opponent.
10. Critical Striker
As mentioned, with so much resist-gear available in arena, turtle-based strategies have been on the rise. That’s why others are doing everything they can to piece together hyper-aggressive pet talents. Critical Striker adds a decent bit of critical to your numbers, up to +30 critical at max stats, making this a great choice for those looking to bring down the Jade Empire.
