If you are a fan of Wizard101 and you are thinking of making a storm wizard, one of the things that you want to know is what is the best storm pet. Below are some good suggestions on the best storm pets in Wizard101.

Rain Beetle Storm Pet

Rain Beetle Storm Pet
Kraken Storm Pet

The Rain Beetle has been picked as the best storm pet in Wizard 101 out of the four listed in this article. We came to this decision because of its glass cannon playstyle (high damage output and useful abilities), like its ability to stun opponents, for example. The Rain Beetle is a great addition to any storm wizard’s deck; it will undoubtedly help players in PvE and PvP.

The Rain Beetle is a shade of blue and yellow pet with spines on its back. It looks similar to the other beetles in the game except for its colors.

How to Get a Rain Beetle

This pet is a bit different from the others we will discuss. The Rain Beetle is a hybrid pet, meaning that you get it by hatching two different pets. You can get a Rain Beetle by hatching a Storm Beetle and another pet, although a lot of people say that you have to hatch two Storm Beetles. This pet is difficult to get, but the time is worth it.

Best Talents For Rain Beetle

Since this is a hybrid pet, that means that the talents and attributes of the Rain Beetle will depend on its parents. Therefore, you want to use your best pets to try and get the best combination. It also may take some time to get it, so be patient.

If you are able to get a Rain Beetle, you are lucky indeed because it offers the following features.

  • Can be equipped at any level
  • Can be used for any play style.
