• Chapter V of Runes of Magic brings us new pets which are categorized as "Zodiac".  As their name implies, twelve of these exist. Which ones are that? What are they called and what are they good for? We found it out for you already.

    Click "Read more" and choose your new favorite pet.


    "Zodiac" pets let us immediately think about the "zodiac signs" and thats exactly the eponym for these. Every pet is available in three different levels of development so that  totally 36 "Zodiac Pets" exist. The different levels are "Newborn...", "Adult..." and "Legendary...". These Zodiac Pets exist each with the mentioned levels:

    • "Gemini" Pet
    • "Aquarius" Pet
    • "Libra" Pet
    • "Pisces" Pet
    • "Cancer" Pet
    • "Scorpio" Pet
    • "Leo" Pet
    • "Sagittarius" Pet
    • "Aries" Pet
    • "Capricorn" Pet
    • "Taurus" Pet
    • "Virgo" Pet

    The desciptions for the levels are equal for all Zodiac Pets. We only list the Gemini Pet here:

    • Summoning Stone - Newborn Virgo Pet. Use it to summon Newborn Cancer Pet. When summoning the Zodiac Pet in its Newborn stage for the first time that day, you will receive the effects of the Star Spirit Blessing: for 3 hours, increases XP and TP obtained in battle by 20% as well as item drop rate by 20%.
    • Permanent Adult Zodiac Pet summoning stone. Use it to summon Adult Gemini Pet. When summoning the Zodiac Pet in its Adult stage for the first time that day, you will receive the effect you previously chose when using this item for the first time. The effect will last 3 hours.
    • Permanent Legendary Zodiac Pet summoning stone. Use it to summon Legendary Gemini Pet. When summoning the Zodiac Pet in its Legendary stage for the first time that day, you will receive the effect you previously chose when using this item for the first time. The effect will last 3 hours.

    Later in this news we will explain the effect you can choose at the higher levels. Every pet is also assigned to one of the elements Wind, Water, Fire or Earth:

    • Wind: Gemini, Aquarius, Libra
    • Water: Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio
    • Fire: Leo, Sagittarius, Aries
    • Earth: Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo

    All pets can be produced. We only list one example here, because the descriptions are very long and the width of our site is limited. You only have to change the name and the element for the other pets. The Arcane Transmutor is needed for the production.  

    Ressources to produce the Summoning Stone - Newborn Gemini Pet:

    • 3 Wind Star Sand
    • 1 Gemini Pet Crystal
    • 1 Arcane Transmutor Charge

    Ressources to produce the Summoning Stone - Adult Gemini Pet:

    • 3 Wind Star Stone
    • 1 Summoning Stone - Newborn Gemini Pet
    • 1 Arcane Transmutor Charge

    Ressources to produce the Summoning Stone - Legendary Gemini Pet:

    • 3 Wind Star Diamond
    • 1 Summoning Stone - Adult Gemini Pet
    • 1 Arcane Transmutor Charge

    You need two resources to produce a Newborn Zodiac Pet, the Star Sand and the Gemini Pet Crystal. Unfortunately we couldn't find out where to get those resources. The Star Sand is not a basic resource and can also only be produced with the Arcane Transmutor:

    • 3 Wind Elements give 1 Wind Stardust
    • 3 Wind Stardust give 1 Wind Star Sand
    • 3 Wind Star Sand give 1 Wind Star Stone
    • 3 Wind Star Stone give 1 Wind Star Diamond

    So this is what you need to produce one Legendary Gemini Pet:

    • 1 Gemini Pet Crystal
    • 351 Wind Elements
    • 174 Arcane Transmutor Charges

    Now let's have a look at the effect the pets will grant. We already know the effect for the Newborn Pets (see above). For the higher levels you can choose an effect when you first summon the pet. All effects last for 3 hours and some seem to increase with higher pet level, if the pest really can level (values in brackets).

    The Adult Pets have these effects:

    • Star Amulet of Fortune
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Increases item drop rate by 50%. (Effect duration also includes offline time.)
    • Star Amulet of Rage
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Increases XP obtained in battle by 30% (+1,5% per level). (Effect duration also includes offline time.)
    • Star Amulet of Strength
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Increases Maximum HP and Maximum MP by 5%. (Effect duration also includes offline time.)
    • Star Amulet of Talent
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Increases TP obtained in battle by 5% (+0,25% per level). (Effect duration also includes offline time.)
    • Star Amulet of Ability

    • Star Amulet of Defense
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Increases Physical Defense and Magical Defense by 3% (+0,15% per level). (Effect duration also includes offline time.)

     The effects of the Legendary Pets are a bit higher:

    • Star Amulet of Fortune
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Increases item drop rate by 75% (+3,75% per level). (Effect duration also includes offline time.)
    • Star Amulet of Rage
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Increases XP obtained in battle by 40% (+2% per level). (Effect duration also includes offline time.)
    • Star Amulet of Strength
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Increases Maximum HP and Maximum MP by 7%. (Effect duration also includes offline time.)
    • Star Amulet of Talent
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Increases TP obtained in battle by 10% (+0,5% per level). (Effect duration also includes offline time.)
    • Star Amulet of Ability
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Increases all attributes by 3%. (Effect duration also includes offline time.)
    • Star Amulet of Defense
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Increases Physical Defense and Magical Defense by 5% (+0,25% per level). (Effect duration also includes offline time.)

    There are three more effects which we couldn't assign to a level. Maybe they are always available or maybe only for the Legendary Pets. We will know it once they become available ingame in the future.

    • Star Amulet of Fortitude
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Increases Critical Physical Hit Rate and Critical Magical Hit Rate by 180 (+9 per level). (Effect duration also includes offline time.)

    • Star Amulet of Protection
      You receive the blessing from the Zodiac Pet. Reduces damage from being attacked by a player by 10%. (Effect duration also includes offline time.)
