    I have read many posts about how we cant just tell pets to drop any more & how people ask how to get pets to drop items. and so i wondered...
    When we train at swoop or Miasma, do the pets get the artifact and would it benifit to kill my pet after a training session to see if it did in fact obtain one?

    Big mystery i guess.

    Do Pet Get artifacts Ever?

    no, pets don't get loot at all. The items you get from using the 'drop' command when a pet bonds are those which you would have gotten as loot if you had killed it.
    If you don't remember to use the command before the pet's first death (like me :blushing:) you lose the loot, unless you've the presence of mind to loot it off the corpse.

    After this first death the only thing that can be gained from using the drop command are a few arrows or bolts if the pet has been fighting an archer such as juka lord, meer captain, ratman archer or centaur.

    This makes me wonder just how many arrows my warhorse has sticking out of his backside from my recent spree of farming arrows off ratman archers.

    Poor Horsey.

    Last time I accidently killed my pre-patch golem and it dropped me 4k in bolts and arrows.

    :D ask him, give the drop command and the pile of arrows will appear at his feet.

    Actually pets can get the artifacts. I've seen it on my pets before. It's very rare but can happen.
