This is a screenshot of my pet (a former cat, now permanently transmogrified into a Mimic) shortly after triggering an outburst of lightning.
Please note that:
- My character is not doing anything.
- Mimics, as far as I know, do not cast electric shocks (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong).
- According to the Pet sheet, my pet inflicts zero elemental damage.
I don't know much about the inner workings of Torchlight, but I suspect a few factors:
- My pet has an amulet equipped which increases its electric damage by 3%.
- My currently equipped weapon inflicts electric damage.
- My pet was a Burrower at some point, and Burrowers do cast electric shocks.
Which one(s) is it?
