Table of contents


Supplements are very helpful tools, there are 14 different supplements aimed at different groups of pets. You can find a list of what beast uses what supplements here. It is recommended that you invest in these before you go about leveling your pet, because they greatly improve your XP. The best supplements will grant your pet and extra 500 or more XP per kill.

Beast Happiness

Another thing that can improve your beast's XP and stats slightly is their Mood, There is a range of happy moods, a content mood, and a range of unhappy moods. Your Beast's mood will vary depending on the food you give him, the last time you fed him, the planet that you are on, and what you are having him kill.

The only way to know if your beast likes an activity is to try it, or go there and find out. Some Beasts like to do tricks, others do not. Other things include being grouped, and if you are buffed or not.

Keeping your Beast Happy is the first step to having a Best Friend Forever.

Leveling against Beasts Vs. Humanoids

There is a few pros and cons involved when leveling your beast against either humanoids or other beasts, so you should take them into consideration when choosing where you wish to grind, especially if you are AFK.

One pro of leveling against other beasts is that it can be a great way to learn specials for your pets. You can easily set up a macro to target the beast NPCs and initiate Creature Knowledge while you are AFK and even while your attack macro is running. Some of the cons are that you may want to be mindful of attacking creature nests that may be near by and could cause too much aggro. As well, beasts don't tend to drop credits or electronic junk. They will instead usually drop less valuable organic junk (such as insect legs), some stat loot and can also quickly fill up your inventory with isomerase which are not worth looting in low quality.

Humanoids don't offer any specials for your pet to learn, however they drop credits and electronic junk that can be reverse engineered, sold to a Junk_Dealer for credits and some traders will buy stacks of electronic junk also. Humanoids tend to drop better stat loot then beasts also. With autoloot enabled and a loot macro running you can pick up extra credits while grinding your beast.

Please also be mindful of hogging NPCs that are involved in quests. Aside from being frustrating for other players, it can also get you a warning or even a  game ban from GMs.[1]
