Pet Bead Guide

Below are recommended bead setups for Buff Pets. Included are "Simple" bead setups that don't include Angelic or Sacred beads, in addition to "Preferred" setups that can be much more expensive, but are more optimal.
You can deviate from these recommendations as needed. These bead setups are only meant to serve as guidelines.
Feel free to experiment with your beads as needed, but pay attention to the Sacred Beads, as they have prior requirements for you to use them.
