It's been a while since I played Torchlight, but I seem to recall that my pet would sort of randomly cast the 'Heal All' skill, and the 'Summon Skeletal Archers' skill that I'd given him. It seemed like every twenty seconds or whatever, he'd cast one of them again, so this leads me to believe the pet is still affected by the natural cooldown period of whichever spells you decide to give him.

Based on this, does equipping your pet with things that give a 'faster cast speed' bonus make him able to cast his spells more quickly? I never noticed any improvement myself, but since I assumed it wouldn't work, I never gave him more than probably a 4% bonus in this area. I'm not even sure if this bonus affects spells with a timed cooldown used by the player.

  • I believe it has no effect whatsoever. They rarely (if ever) cast the same spell multiple times in quick succession so it's hard to tell. They seem to be able to cast both learned spells simultaneously however. May 26, 2012 at 22:29

They don't. Items that affect your pets explicitly say so (bonus to pet damage, etc).
