Fish are consumable items for pets, acquired through trading and fishing. Fish may temporarily transform your pet into a monster, permanently transform your pet into another type of pet, or give it straight boosts to specific properties for a limited period of time. Fish may also contain items of any rarity (all the way up to Unique) and consumables for the player.

You can also purchase a 'Cat Fish' or a 'Dog Fish' from the General Goods vendor in town at any time, allowing you to change your cat to a dog (or vice versa) or reset a transformation.

Fish SizeEdit

3 sizes of transforming fish can be caught, and the size determines the duration of the effect. The margin of time from when the fish gets hooked to the time the player clicks to pull apparently correlates with the size of fish caught. Catching a fish right after it gets hooked appears to increase the chances of a Big or even Giant fish being hooked.

  • Normal fish containing no prefix in their name will transform your pet for 120 seconds.
  • Big fish containing the "Big" prefix in their name will transform your pet for 3600 seconds.
  • Giant fish can also be caught, but are proven to be very elusive. Giant fish have the ability to transform your pet permanently1 into what ever the giant fish is (example: Giant Ice Angel: Ice Elemental)
1: Runic's use of the word permanent is not accurate for pet transformations. All it means in practice is that there is no time limit on the transformation of your pet. So, if you started with a dog and feed it a Giant Muckfish, thus transforming it into a Goblinhound, it will remain a Goblinhound until you feed it another fish of the normal or big variety. However, you should be aware that when the timer runs out, your pet will transform back into its ORIGINAL state of a dog, not back into a Goblinhound as you might expect.
