From the update notes:

Quote:
• Reference attributes when calling pets over level 99 have been changed.

If at or below level 99: PC’s Level + the pet’s maximum level
If over level 99: Main weapon item level + the pet’s maximum level
 
* The internal level will still be level 99, but the pet's stats will be raised.
* If the main weapon is switched out when a pet is active, the increased stats will change based on the new main weapon.

• The effects of the “Beast Affinity” job trait earned through merit points will now apply even above level 99. The following pets have the possibility of being greater than level 99.

Slippery Silas / Turbid Toloi / Crafty Clyvonne / Dipper Yuly /
Flowerpot Merle / Luckly Lulush / Nursery Nazuna / Dapper Mac / Discreet Louise / Fatso Fargann / Presto Julio / Malibuster Cetas / Audacious Anna / Swift Sieghard / Faithful Falcorr / Bloodclaw Shasra / Bugeyed Broncha / Gorefang Hobs / Gooey Gerard / Crude Raphie



Can someone explain this a little more clearly? I'm not sure I fully understand.

Example: I have Brethren Axe (item level 113) in my main-hand. If I use one of the new jugs, that pet will be lvl 113? If I use a Falcoor jug, it can be anywhere from 99 to 109, depending on how many Beast Affinity merits I have?

Is that right, or am I completely misunderstanding things?

Pretty much your max pet level will equal your main hand item level. They made it pretty easy just equip say the delve axe item level 113 and call pet remove axe and watch the hp drop.

So Beast Affinity should definitely be 5/5 now then, if I plan to use the "old" jugs?

Am I correct that if I had 2/5 in it, Falcorr would be 99 + 2 + 2, so 103? At 5/5 Falcorr would be 99 + 2 +2 + 2 + 2 + 2, so 109? Just want to make sure that's how it works before I decide how to re-do group 2 merits.

So using their "formula"

Delve axe = 113
Pet max level = 99 + 15 (max merits w/ augmented Relic +2) = 114

If over level 99: Main weapon item level + the pet’s maximum level

Not sure if really can exceed weapon level 113 but right now looks about right from what I hear can't be certain until test it all out any ways talk about beast mode for dynamis farming lol....

You're going to kill everything before you have a chance to stagger them.

There's a new mechanism for pet levels above level 99, you can think of it as a sort of "Level Sync" effect, that will reduce or increase your pet's level depending on the Main Hand weapon. So if you want to maintain your high iLvl pet, you won't be able to use Aymur. I'm sorry. ;(

I'm in a similar boat with Guttler, haha. REMs will get an iLvl boost in the future, not sure when, or to what iLvl... but someday.
