Hey, I play on official PvP and 'm wondering if pets guard against NPCs outside raid hours? A croc keeps coming in my base and annoying me when I’m doing chores. I want to set up a pet to kill him when he gets near so I don’t have to bother.
If I set this pet to Guard Area or Stand and Defend, will it do so only during raid hours? Or will it fight the croc whenever it gets near? I don’t want to train up a pet just to have it and the croc ignore each other and the croc walk right past it into my door again.
The second question is, if the pet will fight NPCs outside raid hours, will it level up from this? or does it need to be following me to gain experience?
