This item is only available by pre-ordering the expansion Menace of the Underdark between Feb. 27 2012 and June 24 2012. The item functions as if it were a gold seal hireling contract that never expires, summoning a panther when used. Like gold seal hirelings, one may summon the panther anywhere within a private instance, the panther will coexist with other hirelings and summonses, and takes up one party slot.
The panther functions as a level 20 fighter hireling, displaying a hireling control bar that features fighter feats Intimidate, Trip and Sunder.
The Figurine of Wondrous Power summons a Panther. It’s similar to a hireling with a few exceptions…
- Pather’s class equivalent is fighter-ish. He’s statted stronger than our humanoid hirelings.
- He does take up a group slot, however if your friend also summons a panther, you may both use the panther. (If you and your friend both summoned the panther you’d have a party of 4)
- Dungeon scaling contribution is like gold seal hirelings – less than a person, and less than a vendor hireling
- The panther has a 5th claw, so yes he is able to use levers and doors
- The “contract” for the panther never expires
- For those who buy the Collector’s edition, the panther will be available for all of your characters, and for each new character you make.
- Remember that you need to be minimum level 18 to summon him.
Actually it is a “her”, not a “him”, in spite of the reference to a 5th claw.
Nice item. A gold seal fighter that never expires. Useful!
Darkness closing all around
Unleash the panther!
Is that a panther in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
