Pets play a very important part in Clash of Streamers. They are used to improve your team's combat potential, gain additional loot from various mechanics, improve Weekly Event completion, and much more.
To learn about what pet abilities are and how they work, take a look at the Pet Abilities Guide.
Players that actively use pets to optimize their account progression will be much further ahead than other players who do not. With that being said, it's extremely important that you are regularly updating your pet abilities to optimize them for the most appropriate strategies.
So, how do pet abilities relate to the weekly reset?
Essentially, once you change the abilities of an active pet, you need to wait until the weekly reset for these new abilities to become active.
This is a sort of preventative measure from players constantly swapping out abilities all of the time before doing each and every in-game action. Essentially, when you set your active pet abilities, you are committing to that pet ability-set for the entirety of a week.
Once the week is over, you will have your new pet abilities enabled on each of your active pets.
Why is all of this important anyways?
Each week, you need to ensure that you set your next week's pet abilities before the weekly reset happens.
Pet abilities are hugely important. In terms of Weekly Event completion, LuL pet abilities are likely the most important pet abilities of all. The variety of LuL pet abilities allow you to save resources while earning more back from Weekly Events.
Since you should be completing at least the rare Weekly Event each week, you need to ensure that you change your LuL pet abilities each week before the weekly reset.
For example, if the Gem Event is currently shiny legendary in the Weekly Event rotation, you know it will be rare next week. In this case, you'll want to equip the Gemcutter and Gem Bargain passive abilities on your active LuL pet. These abilities will lower the cost to complete the Gem Event, while earning you more rewards in the process.
This simple example should be a good demonstration of the importance of changing your pet abilities on a weekly basis.
So, before the weekly reset, you need to do the following:
- Update your LuL pet abilities to the abilities needed to complete next week's rare Weekly Event.
- Update any of your other pet abilities based on any other strategies you aim to use (check out the Best Pet Strategies for a few different strategies).
This is an extremely important part of maximizing your account progression in Clash of Streamers. While the LuL pet abilities may not seem like a big deal, they can save you tens of millions of Gems worth of loot in the long run. The same applies to other pet abilities - update them appropriately before the weekly reset!
