Confused where to start? Let's start here with a pet of mine.
Time To Do Some Explainin'..
This is its stats. Notice it has two sections. One is a section about Strength, Agility, Will, and Health. Then the second section, the Cheer Stats.
The reason why they're separate is they're for two different purposes. The top section is for making your pet tougher and stronger. The bottom section pertains to the cheering ability that you have in Pet PvP. Be aware when you train, there are DIFFERENT activities for both.
This Activity page is how you train your pets. There's different options you can use as you unlock them. Each one will be geared EITHER to the section with Strength, Agility, Will and Health OR the Cheer Stats.
Look carefully, I picked Dead Lift which gives point towards Strength, Health and Experience.
Now if you read carefully, Deadlift will give you also a pet gear which you can save up for higher level activity. Higher level activities will require pet gear, but they will give MORE points towards Strength, Agility, Will, Health and Experience. You can also earn Pet Gear from Pet PvPing, Questing or if you buy them.
Now this is my maxed out pet, so she is able to unlock ALL worlds' activities.
Now I picked Iron Fist. Notice it will give points or NOT to the Cheer Stats. Like I said before, there are activities that are geared to one section or other.
You can see this requires a Squirt Bottle which I don't have, so therefore I can't train for it until I get some!
Now you're starting to wonder what to do with those Cheer Stats. You see in Pet PvP, you get to cheer your pet to make it fight harder or be stronger or dodge better, etc etc.
How Do I Use Cheer?
When you Pet PvP, you will notice the cheer section on the bottom of the screen.
As you can see my Cheer button on the bottom is grayed out. You have to wait for the meter on the left side on top of the cheer button to fill up before that cheer button lights up
Now the meter is full. You can see it be white.
Now it's green which is the more stronger cheering you can give. But be aware that sometimes the icon on the left side of the button changes. Strength..
Or Will. You'll have to choose, but do it quickly. They tend to change within a second.
WOOT I WIN! I get some pet gears that I can use towards my pet's training.
Okay, So What Should I Do With The Cheer Stats?
This is straight from Pirate101:
The number of times you can cheer depends on your pet's power.
It’s also important to watch your pets as they spar and time your cheers. Pets get bonus Action from cheering when they successfully attack (Strength-based cheer bonus), take damage from a hit (Will-based cheer bonus), or dodge (Agility-based cheer bonus). Knowing your pet’s forte with Strength, Will, and Agility will help make for winning decisions when it comes to cheering!
Have you noticed the other meter opposite of the white one? Well that's something you'll really like. Every time you cheer, you will slowly fill up the right meter. But once you fill it up, you will be able to pick from THREE actual cards and cast one of them.
Well, the cards you unlock while training your pet is very useful for pet pvping. You can use them to be casted on your opponent's pets for great damage or on your own pet for boosts and protection.
Hope that I answered all of your questions.
