MAPLESTORY 2 HOW TO LEVEL UP YOUR PET FAST!


Normal Pets

Normal pets, as opposed to combat pets, do not accumulate experience nor provide buffs during battle, but instead have extra inventory space that can be used while the pet is summoned. These pets can generally be obtained through certain events or offerings.

Pet Taming

Level 50 Maplers can begin taming monsters around the world that have the “Hungry” tag in front of their name. To easily see if a map has a hungry monster, look for small blue dots on the Mini Map.

Monsters have a sweet tooth, so you’ll need Dryad Pet Candy to entice them so they’ll let their guard down and approach you.

Throw the candy at “hungry” monsters you find to make them like you. When you increase their fondness enough (bar above their head will fill up), they become “docile,” and you can try to capture them.

Place a Dryad G1 Snare, Dryad G2 Snare, or Dryad G3 Snare on the floor and guide them to the trap. If a “docile” monster steps on the snare, they are captured and become your pet. However, if a “hungry” monster steps on the snare, it will break.

Once caught, the pet will be displayed in your inventory. Double click on the pet to summon them and add them to your Pet Album.

Rarities

Currently, pets come in Normal, Rare, Exceptional, and Epic grades, which is influenced by the grade of Dryad Snare used, although pets dropped from Dungeons are guaranteed to be Exceptional.

Pet Bonuses

Depending on the rarity, your pet will receive various talents and level up bonuses. Bonus talents include but are not limited to Movement Speed, Physical Piercing, Health, and Attack Speed.

Rating Talents Bonus Talents
Normal +9 Attack Bonus on level up, max of 450 None
Rare +15 Attack Bonus on level up, max of 750 1 bonus talent, unlocked at pet level 50
Exceptional +21 Attack Bonus on level up, max of 1050 2 bonus talents, unlocked at pet level 30 and 50
Epic +34 Attack Bonus on level up, max of 1700 3 bonus talents, unlocked at pet level 10, 30, and 50

Leveling Pets

While some pets are unable to level, the ones that can continue leveling until a max level of 50. Pets gain miniscule amounts of experience from the player killing monsters; however, the best way to level your pet is to use the pet fusion option, which allows you to “feed” other pets to your chosen pet to increase its experience dramatically. You can receive bonus experience from the fusion bonus, which gives you bonus experience for the first 24 pets used to fuse with your pet and is shared across all pets. This bonus resets daily at Midnight (daily reset).

If you do get a new pet that you would rather use instead of another, don’t worry! You can fuse it with your old pet to make full use of the experience your old pet had.

The amount of EXP for pets is as follows:

Pet Grade EXP Needed every Level
Normal 22,000 EXP
Rare 55,000 EXP
Exceptional 90,000 EXP
Epic 90,000 EXP
