Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire Pet Locations and All Pet Bonuses

Looking for a furry companion to increase your stats and make your spells more deadly? We've got the location of every single Pillars of Eternity 2 pet!

Plenty of wizard, rogue, and barbarian companions can be found throughout the classic Infinity Engine-style RPG Pillars of Eternity 2, but there's an extra type of furry friend to recruit for even more customization options.

Pillars of Eternity 2 pets help to define your character build by shoring up skills you lack in, reinforcing your best skills to higher levels, and offering bonuses to the whole party just for following you around.

Most of these pets are found by exploring side rooms and rooftops across the the main city of Neketaka, but a few are much more difficult to track down as you sail across the Deadfire Archipelago.

Pillars of Eternity 2 Pet Locations

Screeching birds of prey, feisty kitty cats, faithful hounds, and even baby dragons can be discovered and added to your collection if you know where to look.

While your inventory can be filled to the brim with pets, the bonuses listed below only apply when the pet is in the actual pet slot on the main character (located below the belt slot on the right side of the character rag doll). If you want a place to house your extra pets on board the Defiant, you can buy the Menagerie ship upgrade at the Neketaka shipyard shop.

Besides the specific pets found across the game world listed below, you can also buy pets directly by talking to Ereti in the west of Kahonga Palace in the Serpent's Crown area of Neketaka.

When you defeat Nemnok in the Drowned Barrows (north of Junvik village), select the option to recruit him as a companion. He's not stoked about going from god to pet, but he'll do it. Nemnok will also loudly berate the party when in the pet slot, so there's a trade off for his bonuses!
