How to Use an Attack Skill[edit | edit source]

To execute an Attack Skill, enter an ongoing quest. Wait for the cat's portrait at the bottom of the screen to flash and become surrounded by a golden border. Then tap the cat's portrait and they will launch an animated attack causing significant damage to the enemy. Damage amounts are indicated in red numbers that appear over the enemy position.

The recharge timer for a cat's Attack Skill can be shortened by tapping on the image of the enemy creature when your energy is not empty, and is lengthened when the enemy attacks the cat.

There are two subsets of Attack Skills: one does a singular amount of damage, and the other, Damage Over Time (DOT) attacks, does multiple (lesser) amounts of damage. The latter are generally more useful since excess damage from a singular attack isn't carried over to a new round when the enemy is defeated; but with DOT attacks, if the first hits defeat the current enemy, subsequent hits will be applied to the new opponent in the next round.

Legacy Attack Animations[edit | edit source]

Over the course of Halloween 2019 and Purrismas 2019 new animations have rolled out. Here are some of the old animations used before:

Guild Leader Attack Skills[edit | edit source]

Since version 1.6.5, the Guild Leader can enter the quests.
They used to do a seemingly random attack that the player couldn't control.
As of version 2.8.4 the Guild Leader's attack is stronger, happens more frequently, and its animation depends on the weapon wielded. Legacy animation:

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The first DOT cat was Holly, after which in subsequent patches the effect was added to other animations as well.
