The Chimera, a man’s best friend.

The Chimera, a man’s best friend.

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, the popular first part of a trilogy, that proves to be one to be remembered is unveiling some of the secrets the 2nd installment will bring us. Namely the lovely chimera, a cute looking thing that can crush you bones with a simple hug.

NeocoreGames explains us why we should rely on this giant pet, and where it comes from:

Sounds good, but what is the use of a Chimera?

♦ The Chimera can be summoned during battles as another helpful companion (let’s face it, what is a hunter without a dog… or even better, a dog-like, hulking and loyal monster).
♦ You can send it to the Ink, where it can gather gold, enchanted objects, even special potions and essences (without giving you a hard time about it, like Katharina does).
♦ The Chimera will evolve: it gets stronger and more experienced, but it needs to be fed in order to be useful.
♦ The Chimera has its own summoning chamber in the Lair, where you can enhance its strength along with additional skills, or improve its scavenging abilities (it will probably never learn to sit, but there is no harm in trying).

Where did it come from?

You can set the Chimera free during a particular quest. However, it won’t follow you everywhere like a permanent companion, you just gain the ability to summon it during battles. The beast gains levels that influence its battle stats among other things. The “dog” will also have a Hunger rating that affects its scavenging and battle stats like HP and Damage. The Hunger increases with every treasure hunt and when dying in battles, and also with every minute it spends summoned anywhere. By feeding it Essences, the Hunger will decrease…

Do you dare to give him a treat?
