Sparring

Speak to Decius Duelmaster in the Circus Maximus to join a pet battle. You can choose to challenge other players in Pet Sparring PvP, or you can practice in a Pet Practice Match. Select up to four pets for your bullpen, and enter the arena!

You unlock the ability to fight with four pets by earning badges for completing fights. Compete 5 times, and you unlock the ability to fight with two pets. Compete 15 times, and you unlock the ability to fight with three pets. Compete 30 times to unlock the ability to fight with all four!



Once you’re in battle, you can select each pet to cheer for them. Each pet has an Action Meter. The Action Meter is filled by cheering. The number of times you can cheer is determined by your pet’s Power pool. The amount of Action bonus you receive for each cheer is determined by the pet’s Guts, Guile, and Grit stats. Cheer at the right time, and you’ll earn more Action.

  • Guts. Pets with great Guts get more Action from cheering when their health is high.
  • Grit. Pets with great Grit get more Action from cheering when their health is low.
  • Guile. Pets with great Guile get more Action from cheering when their health is in the middle.

Once your pet’s Action Meter is full, you can select a power for it to cast out of the powers it’s learned from leveling. All Pets have a default power they can use if none have been trained up.

The best time to cheer is when the cheer button is bright green and lit up. You can cheer when the button is blue, but it’s not as optimal.



Cheer and cast the right powers at the right times, and you’ll prevail in battle.

Once the battle is over, whether you’ve won or lost, you earn pet gear and perhaps some snacks. The reward is better if you won.
