The pet is the second main character in M&M. The player must be familiar with its attributes if he / she wants to become a more experienced player.
Pet list: There's space for five pets on the list, which is also the maximum a player can carry at a time. There're two states for a pet: resting and marching state. You can choose a pet on the list and change its state. Marching state means the pet has been chosen to be marching as it will follow its owner into a battle or for other activities (like hitpoint recharging or disguise). Only one pet can be set into an marching state at a time while the resting pets are not going to follow their owner into any activities.
After choosing one pet, you can see its essential information under the "Detailed information about the pet" section.
Picture: represents the appearance of the pet you have chosen.
Name: Choose a good name for your pet. It can be changed at any time.
Life: That is the health of the selected pet. In front of the slash is the pet's current life and behind it is it's maximum health. When health drops to 0 the pet is stunned. If the pet is stunned too many times it will affect its growth rate. Remember that.
Experience: shows the current experience points and requirement to upgrade the pet to next level (They're separated by a slash). Experience will be gained through continuous fighting. When the current experience reaches the experience needed, the pet's level will increase.
Experience points needed to make a level with pet are lower compared to player.
Loyalty: Means how faithful the pet is to its owner. When a player first enters the game, system will grant his pet with 100 points of loyalty. However the loyalty of pets caught on the field will be between 60-100 depending on the experience of the catcher.
Every five levels a player or pet makes, pet's loyalty will increase by one point.
The loyalty of the pet has a certain effect on its growth. If the pet was traded too many times with other players or if it was stunned too many times by monsters, and the pet's loyalty drops below a certain point, it will run away from its owner.
When a pet's loyalty reaches 100, it allows its owner to change into its appearance. Access Disguise skill under Advanced command.
The five attributes of the pet: Every pet has its attribute where it can be Metal, Water, Wood, Fire or Earth.
