Poogie!

Hunting monsters is hard work and, sometimes, hunters need to unwind. Petting an adorable Poogie is the perfect way to get your mind off those razor-sharp Anjanath fangs that closed on you just moments ago. Pet it (the Poogie, not the Anjanath) the right way and it’ll eventually start warming up to you, even letting you pick it up and take it all over Astera! You might even be rewarded for your kindness…
