This month’s Alpha, The Cursed Tribe, introduces new animal sidekicks: Buddies! Here’s a guide on how to get them all.
The Baby Bat is a 50% drop from The Ancient Mine, found south of the Eastern Ruins (this is also the place that you get your first 4 Adver crystals before entering The White Forest)
The Dog is available as a 25% drop from the tutorial encounter when you first create a character and a 10% drop from the first miniboss in the Isle of Giants.
The Beholder is a 100% drop from a chest found in The Crypt, East of Landing Point and North of the Eastern Ruins.
In order to enter the crypt, you’ll need a Crypt Key which is a 15% drop chance from fights in the Eastern Ruins. The crypt features a fight slightly harder than the Eastern Ruins but featuring the same mobs.
The chest at the end will teleport you outside of the Crypt and give you the Beholder pet along with some gold and Cloth Armour, so it’s an ideal chest to aim for when you first start.
The Snake is a 5% drop from fights in the Eastern Ruins and a 25% drop from fights in the Crypt, so if you’re lucky enough to find a Crypt Key then it’s worth looking there for the Snake.
Earth / Fire Elementling
Both the Earth and Fire elementlings are a 10% drop from the encounter in The White Forest.
The Horse is available as a 5% drop from the Skeleton King fight in the Sorcerer’s Prison dungeon and a 10% drop from the Ice Giant miniboss in the Isle of Giants.
The Dragonling is a 50% drop from the raid (Lair of the Sorcerer).
Obtaining the Fly is a little trickier than just a drop chance. In the Lair of the Sorcerer there are holes in the ground. Falling into one of these takes you to one of four locations: the White Forest, a house north of the Lair, Courtyard of the Sorcerer or an inaccessible room within the lair.
When you are in the inaccessible room, move East (south will put you in another hole!) and then south to get the chest. Inside that chest is the Fly!
Spirit of Death
The Spirit of Death is the rarest pet: a 1% drop from the Skeleton King fight in the Sorcerer’s Prison dungeon and the two cutscenes between the raid (Lair of the Sorcerer) and the boat that takes you back to Camp Mortus and a 50% drop from the Giants encounter north of the Isle of Giants.
