Pet Decorations in SWTOR

Pet Decorations in SWTOR

In Star Wars: The Old Republic, you can use your pets as decorations. They’ll appear mostly the same as when you have them placed on the ground as pets, but they won’t walk around or follow you. You can only place down pets you own on the character you are currently decorating with, and only get 1 copy of each pet per stronghold. List of All Pets in the Game

Unlike companions, pets you place down will appear as normal even if you aren’t online or are on a character that doesn’t own that pet, so they are great to decorate with. Their only annoyance is you may need to swap characters if you want to place down a pet you don’t have on the character you are currently decorating with, as the pet will show up as 0/0 in red on your decorations list. Once a pet is placed you can easily shift it around in its hook as long as you don’t pick it up, regardless of what character you are on. Pretty much every pet fits on a “small green hook”.

This is a great way to take pictures of your pets, because normally they are busy running around after you! Place your pet as a deco somewhere where you can take a step down (like at the foot of a staircase or on a ledge) and you’ll be able to see it face-to-face when you normally can’t.

Many players choose to show off their favorite pets in their stronghold.

You can use pets to tell a story, especially the animal pets. Many pets are also miniature versions of mounts, so you can create families.

Droid pets can be used as normal droids to set a scene. Some droids float and some sit on the ground.

Or they can just sit around looking cute.

If you’re looking for a good spot to put your pets, the staircase on Dromund Kaas / Coruscant is a good spot with lots of small hooks!
