Feb 282012

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.

Per Tolero in this post:

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!

Enemies howling
Darkness closing all around
Unleash the panther!

Is that a panther in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

  1. Thank you for posting this. I was wondering if the pre-order would be worth anything or not, this would make me think so.

  2. Cool, thanks for the info!

  3. I read that she also has *everything* Bane, Aligned, Metalline, and Destruction.

    “Is that a Harry-beater in your pocket, or are you just gla- ARGH, NO, GETITOFF, GETITOFF! *scream, gurgle*”

    Question: it breaks bravery bonus doing level 16 and 17 elite quests? Or that is another overpower thing like summoning two identical panthers in a party?

  5. HAHAHA.

    I can’t wait to get it, someone had it out for epic last stand!

  6. Again, from what I read rather than experience… yes, the panther counts as a level 20, disrupting your bravery bonus. Probably would break things like GH slayer as well, although I hear she can basically solo Vale.

  7. Yay, now xxDrizzztxx and xxxDrizzlitxxx will have their very own Guenhwyvar!

  8. I think that would be xxGuenhwyvarxx ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Great to see the panther…do u have the elite mask also (assuming u do). Could u post the same for that? Also with the mask does it bind with the initial helm used with or is it interchangeable and do the skill stats stack with other items that give a particular stat?

  10. @Mar watch this space. I’ll try to answer your questions in tomorrow’s post.

  11. Thx Geoff…I did find out on the forums that it is interchangeable and it does stack but u might want to still post for those myDDO’ers that don’t venture in to the forums…

  12. Apparently by “tomorrow” I really meant “Sunday” so feel free to check back then ๐Ÿ™‚

What do you think?
