  • HP – 4088

Molten Lion reduces the incoming elemental damage and significantly increases your defense. At lower HP (<10%), its ATK speed and Normal Attack DMG get major buffs. The fact that you can reach a state of invincibility with this pet is enough to prove why it’s a part of this list.

Best water familiar – Hippocampus

  • CP – 17 942
