The Complete List of Diablo 3 Pets and Their Locations

These lovable, little Diablo 3 pets are looking for a family. Call our toll-free adoption hotline or read this list to find out how you can provide them with a forever home.

While not every class uses combat pets in Diablo 3, every class can use non-combat pets to their heart's content. Whether it's a mini-version of the Lord of Terror or a murloc-treasure goblin hybrid, there's a Diablo 3 pet out there waiting for you to adopt it.

The following is a complete list of all Diablo 3 pets as of the release of Rise of the Necromancer (with many pictures courtesy of the Diablo wiki) . There are a variety of ways to get pets -- like buying collector's editions of specific Blizzard games or killing certain rare mobs in-game. Some pets are only available for a certain amount of time, so it's important to stay on top of events and new game releases. As more pets come out, this list will be updated, so stay tuned!

Pets That Are Available via Special Purchase in Diablo 3


  • Acquired via Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Collector's/Deluxe Edition Purchase

Not to be confused with the Fox show that stars Zooey Deschanel's sister. This little pup can be purchased as part of the bundle of extras that comes with the Collector's/Deluxe editions of Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls


Half-Formed Golem

  • Acquired via Rise of the Necromancer Purchase

This beautiful boy can be purchased along with the new class in the Rise of the Necromancer pack. Gaudy necromancer in mismatched armor not included.



  • Acquired via Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void Collector's/Deluxe Edition Purchase

Some alien probes are uncomfortable, but not this one. You can get this Protoss unit as a Diablo 3 pet by purchasing the collector's/deluxe editions of Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void


Pets Available Via Menagerist Goblin Drops in Diablo 3

The menagerist goblin is one of the rarest varieties of treasure goblin and its spawn rate is unaffected by difficulty. It's rare because it's a guaranteed, random, unowned non-combat pet for each member in the party. You don't have to worry about duplicates! This mob is definitely high priority if you want to finish your Diablo 3 pet collection. 


The perfect companion for a wizard, this flaming skull is likely an homage to Marvel's Ghost Rider. Rumor has it that if you idle long enough, Nicolas Cage's face briefly replaces Blaze's.



While he's far from man's best friend, this pup is still your little Buddy. He'd appreciate tagging along with a necromancer to get in on some of that bone action.


The Bumble

This yeti is always ready to play Buck Bumble. How do you think this Diablo 3 pet got its name?



If you're into depressing children's literature about arachnids, this is definitely the pet for you.


Friendly Gauntlet

Perfect for snapping its fingers along to the Addams Family theme with you. Or for holding your hand on long walks through the cemetery.


Galthrak the Unhinged

You know this guy is down to party when he's got unhinged as a title. Or maybe he just unhinges his jaw when devouring prey.



Grunkk is a miniature version of the Siegebreaker from Act III. Keep him away from your mini-buildings!


Haunting Hannah

Hannah is hauntingly beautiful. Or maybe just hauntingly haunting. 


Humbart Wessel

While not as good as Blaze at riding motorcycles, Humbart is the champion of goofy names. Just don't let Zayl (Act V) know you took him.


Lady Morthanlu

Everyone's favorite lady goat since that one lady goat from Undertale, she's the perfect Diablo 3 pet for the adventurer with a taste for petting zoo animals with attitude.



This non-combat pet is as cute as a mutton and also a human child. Whose child is this? Where are his parents?



Although this Diablo 3 pet has an air of horror and death around it, if you bond with it over the latest season of New Girl, it'll soon become your palfeasance. 


The Mimic

How come mimics only ever mimic treasure chests? Why not mimes? Mime-ics, anyone?


Ms. Madeleine

She may look like a character from a Korn album cover, but the flavor text describes her as "a happy go-lucky gal!"


Overseer Lady Josephine

The teddy bears in our world are happy and cuddly, but in Sanctuary, they're vengeful and hellbent. Still cuddly, though.


Queen of the Succubi


Now's your chance to adventure with demonic royalty. She may even introduce you to her friend Morrigan Aensland.


The Stomach

The stomach is a great Diablo 3 pet to have if you never finish your plate. The lung is a better choice, though, if your character has asthma.


That Which Must Not Be Named

There's no pet here. I don't know what you're talking about.



This legendary beast has eluded humans in the real world for too long. Now you can finally own one as a pet in Diablo 3. Part horse. Part horn. All fury.


Pets Acquired Via Other Drops in Diablo 3

Liv Moore

  • Acquired via Ravi Lilywhite Drop (Weeping Hollow, Act I)

Based off of a character from the TV show iZombie, this knife-wielding zombie can be found as a guaranteed drop from the incredibly rare mob Ravi Lilywhite, Passionate Player in the Weeping Hollow in Act I.


Pets That Are No Longer Available in Diablo 3

Seasonal Pets

These pets could be gained by completing Chapter 4 in the seasonal journey of their respective seasons. They were only available during their given season, and thus can't be picked up if that season has passed. 

Dream of Piers

  • Acquired via completing Season 7 Chapter 4

This quarter-horse, quarter-Diablo, half-horn hybrid was only available in Season 7. 


Frost Hound

  • Acquired via completing Season 4 Chapter 4

This chill Diablo 3 pet was the very first non-combat pet seasonal reward back in Season 4.


Old Growth

  • Acquired via completing Season 5 Chapter 4

Disappointingly not voiced by Vin Diesel, you were able to get this pseudo-ent back in Season 5.



  • Acquired via completing Season 9 Chapter 4

He's the best damned boxer who's also made of stone I've ever seen and he was available in Season 9.


Blizzcon Pets

Classic Diablo

  • Acquired via Blizzcon 2016 Attendance/Virtual Ticket

Blizzard brought back the classic Lord of Terror in travel size for Blizzcon 2016 attendees and virtual ticket holders.



  • Acquired via Blizzcon 2015 Attendance/Virtual Ticket

Blizzard keeps finding ways to make cosmetic pets out of murlocs, and I'm all for it. This pet was available to Blizzcon 2015 attendees and virtual ticket holders.


Event Pets

Royal Calf

  • Acquired via Wirt's Stash During Anniversary Event

To unlock this beautiful bovine, players had to craft Wirt's Leg, decipher a map, solve a puzzle involving cow carcasses, and raid Wirt's Stash during the anniversary event. 


The Butcher

  • Acquired via Level 1 Anniversary Event Dungeon Run

This meat is extra fresh and was only available during the anniversary event. Players had to enter the cathedral and run the dungeon starting off at level 1 to get this baby boy. 


That's all the Diablo 3 pets in the game so far. As more seasons, collector's editions, expansion packs, etc. come out, there will definitely be more. Do you have a favorite? Least favorite? Frustrated that you missed out on one? Did we forget to list one? Tell us in the comments!
