Animal Training Properties

Once a pet's "Pet Training Progress" bar is full, it is time to teach it something new. Use the Animal Lore skill on your pet and select "Pet Training Options."

The Animal Training menu lists all of the available training properties you can apply to the pet. The Categories pane shows the category of available properties:

Stats and Resists increase individual Stat and Resist properties for the pet.
Increase Magic Skill Caps and Increase Combat Skill Caps increase skill caps for various magical and combat related skills. This process requires the use of Power Scrolls and only increases the skill cap, you will still need to train the pet in the specific skill through traditional pet skill training.
Magical Abilities give the pet magical abilities in one of several spell schools
Special Abilities give the pet special abilities, different than those traditionally found as weapon special moves.
Special Moves give the pet special moves, similar to those traditionally found as weapon special moves.
Area Effect Abilities give the pet an area attack, targeting multiple adversaries within an area.


When you train your pet, the number of control slots the pet requires will increase. The maximum number of control slots any pet can have is 5, however different types of pets each have their own limit on the maximum control slots they can be trained to.

A pet can only learn so much during each training level. As you mix and match properties from the Animal Training menu, the amount of available training points will decrease based on your selections. Different property selections have different training point costs. When you are ready to apply a new property to your pet, select "Train Pet" and confirm you are ready to do so.
