I have caught a giant web fish. It allows me to permanently turn my pet into a pet spider. Do I lose anything by doing this except the cuddly looks of my companion? What are the benefits of having a permanent pet spider? (Does it then keep those benefits if i feed it other fish to turn it into other creatures temporarily?)
Is there any advantage to turning your pet permanently into a spider if you have piles of web fish to keep turning it into a spider temporarily?
