Pet attributes

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A Ranger's pet has access to five primary attributes:

However, pets do not intrinsically have access to secondary attributes such as Condition Duration.png Condition Duration and Boon Duration.png Boon Duration, although certain Ranger traits can mimic their effects.

Pet attribute modifiers[edit]

On their own, pets can only upgrade their primary attributes by leveling up. However, certain Ranger skills and traits can directly increase or decrease a pet's primary and secondary attributes:

Ranger tango icon 20px.pngTraits[edit]

Expertise Training Taste for Danger — Gain increased vitality. You and your pet gain expertise based on vitality.
Lingering Magic Lingering Magic — You and your pet gain increased concentration.
Instinctive Reaction Instinctive Reaction — Gain quickness when your health drops below the threshold. You and your pet gain healing power based on power.
Pack Alpha Pack Alpha — Your pet's attributes are improved and pet skills gain recharge reduction. Improved attributes are power, condition damage, precision, toughness, and vitality.
Pet's Prowess Pet's Prowess — Your pet moves faster and deals more damage on critical hits.
Celestial Being Celestial Being — Gain access to glyphs. You can become a celestial avatar once you gain enough astral force. Generate astral force by healing allies and damaging foes.Your pet's attributes are weaker.


On top of these effects, a pet counts as an ally for all AoE effects, so it could potentially receive attribute boosts from friendly effects on top of those from its master.

Attribute distribution[edit]

Each of a pet's primary attributes increases every time its master levels. However, the number of points in a specific attribute is dependent on a constant ratio between the various attributes. The units shown in the chart below describe the specific ratios between each pet's attributes. For example, looking at the chart below, one can see that any Devourer's base Toughness.png Toughness will always be twice as high as its Precision.png Precision because

8 (Toughness.png Toughness) = 4 (Precision.png Precision) x 2.
  • Most pet families have the same attribute ratios across all species (i.e. all birds have the same ratios).
  • Exceptions are denoted with "↳(species)".
  • The fish family only has two species and both have different ratios.

Edit: The table now shows the values after the April 2013 patch. The bear picture as well as the shark below still need to be updated. The attributes table for level 80 pets futher down also shows the old values.

A level 1 bear demonstrating a simple 4:4:4:12 ratio.

Jellyfish 4 4 4 10 22
Moas 4 4 4 10 22
Porcines 4 3 6 10 23
Spiders 4 4 4 10 22
  • Looking in the "Total" column, it is apparent that bears have the most attribute points of any pet while the hyena has, by far, the least.
  • The information in this chart may be helpful when determining which type of pet might serve better in certain situations. A pet with high Toughness.png Toughness and Vitality.png Vitality units would likely withstand more damage than a pet with high Power.png Power and Precision.png Precision, while the latter would do more damage.

Despite its simplicity and utility, there are a few things to keep in mind when viewing this chart:

1) These numbers are not the sole determiner of a pet's effectiveness; this chart does not include a pet's non-stat specialties, such as a devourer's ranged shots or a jellyfish's immobilization.
2) There may be a few irregularities to these ratios. For example, bears at certain low levels have a Vitality.png Vitality ratio number of 10-11 instead of 12 for unknown reasons.

Edit: the 12 and 10-11 are still the old values. Is the ratio discrepancy still around?

3) These ratios only describe trends between a pet's base attributes. Equipping skills like Signet of Stone or traits like Master's Bond would subsequently alter a pet's attributes.

Attribute ratio[edit]

The incomplete chart below shows a few conversion constants between a pet's level and its effective attributes. These constants can be used to determine exactly how many points of a certain attribute a pet will have at any given level. To do this, simply find a specific level for your pet on the chart below and choose the corresponding conversion factor, then multiply by that pet's specific attribute ratio unit.

A level 61 shark with 1348 power.
Attribute-Ratio Conversion Chart
Level Attribute Points per Ratio Unit
1 2.5
4 11.75
61 192.5
80 343.5

For example, if you wanted to find out how much power a shark would have at level 61, simply multiply its ratio units of power by the conversion factor at level 61, as shown

7 (shark power ratio units) x 192.5 (attribute points per ratio unit at level 61) = 1347.5 power ≈ 1348 Power.png Power
  • See the screenshot to the right: a level 61 shark with 1348 power.
  • Note that the game will round all decimals up to the nearest whole while calculating attributes.

List of pet attributes[edit]

The following tables show the base attributes of each pet at level 80. Note that the ratios described above are maintained. Unlike other stats which scale based on the above ratios, pet Condition Damage is scaled directly according to level.
