    How the hell do you feed a warlock pet?

  • Nibuca

    “Pet food” is different from food you feed your pet. :) Hunters use the “Feed Pet” ability to change the happiness of their pets. Warlocks don’t care about the happiness of their pets :) But even if we did there’s no “Feed Pet” ability for warlocks.

    Luckily Kibler’s Bits and Sporeling Snacks aren’t happiness food. They’re stat food. To apply the stat food to your pet you “use” the item ie, right click on the item.

    It’s the same way with Hunters. You don’t use the “Feed Pet” ability.. instead you treat it like you were eating it.. but instead it’s consumed by your pet (and gives the pet the well fed buff).

  • omg! i’ve been missing out like crazy! i had no idea i could feed my minion!
    do you think it will make my imp a better mana battery?

    psychonias last blog post..Life Tap etiquette: guilty pleasure or raiding necessity?

  • Nibuca

    Nope, sorry. The two pet foods available only adjust STR and STA. I’ve used the STA for when I’m using the Succubus or Fel Hound. If I had a felguard I’d use the +STR food.

    With the imp, 99% of the time he’s phase shifted so he’s not going to get hit (no reason to add more HP).. and his mana pool would only be adjusted through +int or +spi.

    I do suppose you could use scrolls on him if you really wanted it to change.

  • Nibuca

    Oh, also, when there’s buffing going on, make sure your imp isn’t phase shifted. That way he’ll get the priest, druid, pally buffs (more int, and more spirit).
