What Can Your Cerberus Do For You?

Your Cerberus loves to be useful, and will allow you "swing" it at monsters. When swung, your Cerberus will cry out with a sound much like a cougar. A Cerberus also likes playing with items in your quiver and pouch, and can "shoot" arrows, rocks, daggers, thorns and other items, but they don't go more than a square. To get the full potential of your Cerberus, however, it is necessary to feed it.

How Do I Feed A Cerberus?

A Cerberus is fed with the spell that transforms a normal Cerberus into a Fiery Cerberus. This spell Show text

gives your Cerberus the ability to cast fireballs! As such, you gain the ability to inflict fiery magical damage even if you have exhausted your own personal mana. You must have achieved UM (UM) level Wizard Mastery to cast this spell. Casters are also limited to a maximum power level of 1 minus their existing Wizard level. Thus an UM (UM) Master Wizard can only cast a LO (LO) level version of the spell. Such a Fiery Cerberus will cast a single fireball before reverting to a normal Cerberus and want to be fed again.

Know Your Cerberus By Its Behavior.

Like most cats, your Cerberus will be bored if it is not in your weapon hand(getting pet). To alleviate its boredom, it will actively move randomly to any open places in your inventory. When it does so, you will hear your Cerberus make a muttering sound. This is all perfectly normal and can be safely ignored.

Even from your inventory, your Cerberus can sense certain dangerous monsters. When in close proximity to hidden Demons(even disguised ones), Stone Salimanders, and Litches your Cerberus will issue its cougar cry. Be sure to take heed of these warnings when they occur.

It's all in the Eyes.
