How to get pets in Darkest Dungeon 2

There are 10 different pets that can be unlocked at the Altar of Hope with Candles of Hope. At the altar, navigate to the Intrepid Coast section and look for “Companionship” to unlock pets.

Once you’ve unlocked Companionship, pets can be purchased from the provisioner in the first inn for one relic each. Only three of the pets you have unlocked are available to the Provisioner. You don’t automatically get newly unlocked pets in your inventory like you would with unlocked trinkets.

Each pet has its own unique abilities and buffs that it bestows on the party. The first six unlockable pets grant buffs based on the items equipped on the stagecoach, while the last four pets grant direct combat effects.

You equip your pet through the Wainright screen in the Inn and can only equip one pet at a time and cannot change pets during an expedition. To name your pet, go to any character page. There you will see a Pet tab next to the Goals tab.
