The primary way to obtain pets is through the Crown Store, with prices ranging from 400 to 1,000 , or through special promotions, events and packs. Players can still use pets acquired from the discontinued subscriber loyalty program, promotional give aways and limited time offers on the Crown Store.
What could be more appealing than a hovering football-sized odorous gas bag trailing a half-dozen squirming tentacles? Once this young Netch calf imprints on a master, it will follow him or her anywhere, floating along and tootling happily.
Who says a giant, aggressive, blood-sucking insect can't make a loveable pet? Not the Dark Elves of Bal Foyen, who breed them as trackers, watch-hounds, and netch-deflators. Befriend one of these twitchy little arthropods, and it'll follow you everywhere!
The comical Blue Oasis Dragon Frog is native to Hew's Bane, and before they were bred as pets and widely exported, they could be found only on that Hammerfell peninsula. These little bug-eaters are popular mascots at open-air taverns, and can be trained to puff out small flames to light Bosmeri bug-smoke pipes.
Though Badgers mainly eat burrowing rodents, farmers hate them because they'll take chickens, kwama scribs, and bantam guar if they get the chance. Cranky and irritable, they make terrible pets—which is why they're favorites among the Undaunted.
Who doesn't want to be followed around by a hulking, armored Daedric bug with steel mandibles and a venomous stinger? It eats nothing but the cries and lamentations of your enemies, so it's an easy keeper. And it's friendly, too—in its way.
The Jackal of Tamriel is called by some the "thieves' dog" because it's quick to sniff out sources of food, and clever enough to figure out how to get at them. Once tamed, they serve as loyal companions.
Loyalty reward to players who own the Thieves Guild DLC.
Bear-Dogs are such fierce and courageous fighters, the hunters of Western Skyrim use small packs of them to pursue wild bears. The Bear-Dogs track, corner, and harry the bears until the hunters can arrive with their spears. Afterward the dogs trot home alongside their masters to share in the subsequent feast.
The Moonlight Senche-Tigers have been the sleek and silvery guardians of the Khajiiti temples of the moons ever since the revelation of the Riddle'Thar. The Moon Bishops say that the Moonlight Senche just … knows things of which no other tiger is aware.
Native to Tamriel's northern forests, in the wild the Lynx lives on a diet of rabbits, hares, and skeevers. Domesticated, the brown Northern Lynx makes a dignified and stylish animal companion, popular with the Nord aristocracy.
If you domesticate a Senche-Lion Cub when it's young enough, it will follow you everywhere, no matter how dangerous. And it will remain safe from all harm, while your enemies will burn from the cuteness.
The Snow Bear is known for its fierceness, but its cub is as cute as a bug—maybe two bugs! Even in the direst of circumstances, you're certain to keep your spirits up with a roly-poly Snow Bear Cub tagging at your heels.
Available for a limited time on the Crown Store from December 10-14, 2015.
Once a common sight in Cyrodiil's Great Forest, the Sylvan Nixad is now most often encountered in the glades and meadows of the Gold Coast. Once tamed, they make charming companions, loyal and easy to care for.
Scholars think the iridescent blue Turquoise Nixad must have inherent magical properties, because those wings certainly aren't big enough to enable it to fly. Yet fly it does, flitting about like a beautiful human-shaped hummingbird moth. They live on a diet of treacle and poetry.
