Newbie help re: pets

Ive been reading some threads and kept on noticing “i use two pets”. How is that possible? Is there a specific level/floor needed to be able to equip two pets?

Could be using a pet on your main character and a pet on your hireling character. for example using a slime on your main character for the elemental damage buff and using an Imp on your secondary character for the random item chance.

I see. Makes perfect sense. Thanks a lot! I guess im gonna have to get meself a hireling. :smiley:
