I've only been playing Torchlight 2 for a couple of hours and I have seen my pet get stuck twice already, and both times in fishing holes. I find that walking away from my pet gets him unstuck after some distance, but that would mean roaming around alone for a while, which is not a good idea for some classes.

Is there a more reliable way to get a pet unstuck and immediately?

  • Could try sending it to town. It wouldn't save much time though.

  • Tangential: you're going to have trouble if your pet is functioning as much more than a pack mule. I personally just learnt to live with my pet dealing with the occasional baddie when it felt like it, but mostly just staring at me fighting a horde from a ledge. Jul 18 '13 at 3:28
  • Your pet is unreliable - don't make a build that relies on it.

    Noted and thanks for the tips. Although I don't personally rely on my pet right now (I'm playing a berserker), I just feel naked without my panda. Jul 18 '13 at 6:42

*One workaround would be to get items and/or skills that drastically reduce pet town travel time, (eg. Rohac's boots) and just send your pet to town whenever it gets stuck. You can find a list of items that possess this attribute here.

*EDIT: As pointed out by jw013, it is not necessary to reduce pet travel time at all. You can simply send your pet to town and recall it immediately.

    You can recall your pet when sending it to town to get it to instantly reappear.

  • @jw013 Ah yes, that's true. Haven't played in a while. Jul 18 '13 at 3:41
