Will pets in this game be non combat pets who just pick up gold and/or materials? Or will we also have combat pets like Torchlight in which we can gear and have them hold loot to run back to town and buy/sell items?
The current plan is for pets to be purely a cosmetic option.
Them picking up gold hasn’t been ruled out. If we ever make the decision to have them do so, there will be pets obtainable throughout the course of normal gameplay.
