You may have obtained your first Ragnarok Origin job, mount, and even mercenary, but your character will never be truly complete without a pet. Luckily, getting a pet is one of the easiest, most fulfilling things you can do in this game! Keep reading if you want to find out how to get a pet in Ragnarok Origin!

How to Get a Pet in Ragnarok Origin

There are a handful of ways to get yourself a pet in Ragnarok Origin, but the easiest way is to simply buy a pet at the witches’ pet shop in West Prontera (it can be a tad expensive, but it’s worth it!). If you don’t have much money or just feel like getting a pet the old-fashioned way, however, then you have two more options for obtaining a pet: you can get certain pets from in-game events, or you can just catch one.

Catching pets is arguably the most fulfilling method of getting a companion in Ragnarok Origin, since it actually requires real in-game work to complete. Anything obtained through hard work and determination in games will always have more meaning; also, some pets are solely available through this method.

Prior to utilizing any of these methods of getting a pet in Ragnarock Origin, however, you’ll need to reach level 40. The ability to tame pets should become available to you once you reach level 40, which is an essential prerequisite to getting pets. Once you’ve obtained this ability, you’ll be able to go out and catch pets with your bare hands by following this guide:

Once you gain the ability to tame pets at level 40, you should be given a Pet Quest to complete (don’t worry, it won’t be difficult). Run through the various steps of the quest to complete it, and as a reward, you will get two items: Rainbow Carrots and Condensed Orange Juice.

These items can be used to tame pets. To catch and tame a pet, follow these steps:

  • Open up your new, in-game pet menu. You will see all of the pets available, ranging from S-tier to C-tier.
  • Select the pet you would like to acquire.
    • Generally, pets B-tier and lower will be tamable for you, so choose one of those pets.
  • Once you’ve selected your desired pet, click on the “Acquire” button. Doing this should cause a location menu to pop up.
    • If a location menu does not pop up, then you aren’t able to directly tame that pet.
  • Pick an area from the location menu and begin your search.
  • Once you see a potential pet, a net icon will appear on your screen. Click on the net icon to attempt a capture.
    • It may take multiple attempts to capture your pet, so don’t get discouraged if you fail the first couple of tries. Just keep trying until you succeed!
    • If you end up running out of pet-catching consumables, you can always buy more at the Witch in West Prontera.
  • After you catch your pet, an egg will appear in your inventory; hatch it to receive your new pet!

Catching a pet in Ragnarok Origins isn’t as difficult as many people think, but keep in mind that the monster may begin to attack you if your catches fail, and there is also a cooldown between failed attempts. It’s all worth it for an adorable pet though!
