Captains and Lore-masters have the ability to summon pets: NPCs that assist them and can usually be controlled in detail.

A Lore-master can summon an animal companion, or pet, to their side. These animals have special abilities and are able to assist the Lore-master in combat. Lore-masters can also summon non-combat pets which cannot attack nor take commands, but solely serve a cosmetic purpose.

A Captain can summon a herald, also known as a pet, to aid them in combat as well as buff anyone in their fellowship within range.

Pet Controls

Lore-masters and Captains can control their combat pets through control bars. These have the same setup for all pets and work as follows:

Commands (first three buttons):

Attack: Attack the currently selected target.
Follow: Move to Lore-master and then act according to his mode.
Stay: Stay at current position and act according to his mode.

Modes (next four buttons):

Aggressive: Will enter combat when valid targets are detected.
Passive: Will not enter combat unless commanded to.
Guard: Will enter combat if attacked or someone attacks Lore-master.

The modes Aggressive, Passive and Guard are mutually exclusive. A thoughtful Lore-master will set their pet to passive and control all actions with commands or skills while in a fellowship or raid..
