Ferret Companion

Ferret Companion is a rune effect in Companion, a Discipline-spending Demon Hunter skill that summons a companion animal.

This rune effect summons ferrets that scurry around like the gold pets did before they were removed during beta testing. These ferrets do not help the Demon Hunter in combat, but they are cute, they grant a 10% gold find bonus, and they pick up the gold that drops, saving the Demon Hunter the time it would require to gather the coins herself.

Skill Rune Effects[edit]

See the Companion rune effects page for a more thorough description of the five rune effects in this skill, including screenshots, videos, and skill tips.
