About this mod

Do you want more pets? Do you want the temporary pets turned into permanent ones? Do you want non-pet summons to last longer? Then I think this mod might be for you!

Permissions and credits
Hello, as a player I always pick the pet-class first regardless of game. With Grim Dawn I wanted more "pets" while I lazy back and enjoy the show (like president Joe Biden). The mod might look simple at first but was actually very hard to put together.

Mod should be compatible with all game versions.


Side-note, if you play Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem I strongly recommend my mod (also called) "Pet Patch" for that game.


Install instructions
1. To install just go to your Grim Dawn folder and unpack the mod in your "mods" folder i.e. Grim Dawn\mods
2. To actually "use the mod" in-game do as follows:
3. Start the game > Main Campaign > Custom Game > petpatch (accept)
4. Create Character > Start


This is what the mod brings to the table
In a nutshell, the mod boost all classes "Summon Limits" where applicable from 1 summon to 3 (in some cases even more). All summon recharge timers are lowered to 5 seconds. Furthermore, all summons that only lived for X seconds have become "permanent". In a few cases 1 target summons have been upgraded to summon up to their "Summon Limits" in one casting.

If you are happy with only the above changes then you download the "basic version". However, if you want more (much more) then feel free to download the "expanded version".

The "President Joe Biden" version
Are you lazy? Do you want full immunity? Well, you are in luck! Download and install the mod, then activate it. Once you are in the game pick the Arcanist class, then work towards the skill called "Mirror of Ereoctes". Select it and train it to the max. The original vanilla buff only lasts 6 seconds, but with the mod it lasts 24 hours. This mod also contain all changes from basic/expanded version. Have fun!
