and then proceed to ask if it was level 1
I feel like venomancer pets are always something that gets overlooked on private servers with higher level caps. Not that it applies to me, but I've only been on one server where they were remotely useful in PvP (and it wasn't official).
you could give them more defense if the pet skill books were available. i think the "rare" ones are for like 10 minutes. probably could put the option to buy them at the flower granny, if they're not already available that isedit: Mrs. Zoologist..... yeah she has a few. i believe the skill you would be looking for would be the "protect" skill. but she sells them. to find out which skill in particular, go to "teach pet skill" then click the skill tree button. (been awhile since i did any of that, so the info may not be completely accurate)
Pets still get rolled even fully buffed :/
I don't think it's a good idea:) in 1 vs 1 will be harder to kill a veno:)
