In order for it to use its abilities? or it will use those randomly as soon as it has enough TP? I know i can give command to my pet like /stay and so, but, im wondering about the abilities commands.

Thanks :)

It depends what setting it is on I think. (Only lvl 7 Arc here).

I think carby attacks automatically but if you want to micromanage his abilities then you have to tell it to "Obey" I think instead of "Sic"?

Something like that...

Algorithm's pretty much got it. Use Obey to have Carby auto-attack with Gust only. This is important for party play, to keep Carby from launching a mob with Backdraft randomly.

I'm just starting out too, but see some potential in controlling Backdraft to interrupt special mob attacks. I like hitting a mob with DoT and then having Carby launch them a good ways for a few extra tics, also.

Has anyone had luck getting Carby to get out of range of special mob abilities using Commands? After the server work on Wednesday I hope to get on a bit more and have more time to do so while soloing. Could be very useful!

The best I've found is spamming "Heel". He'll come running to you but I've found hitting it once doesn't always work because of various factors.

Sic : let your pet make their decisions based on spamming all abilities
Obey : let the pet attack with basic abilities but let yourself decide on specials

To answer your question I would need to know if you use a controller

You don't HAVE to mirco manage your pet much as a ARN, but once you get to SCH or SMN, micro managing them will make the difference between the standard cookie-cutter smn/sch to one that really shines. I micro everything about my SCH's Eos spells. I always keep her near the tank while keeping myself out of danger and making sure that mine and her heals aren't working against each other but assisting as much as possible.

EDIT: there are certain spells/commands you can do also at the same time assuming you do them in correct order. Example; i can have Eos use embrace on one targert and then i can instantly start casting Physic on another, but, i can not order her to case Embrace if i start casting Phsyic first. Granted, she will automatically start casting Embrace after a member's hp is so low, but some times, like fighting the dragon in longstop dungeon, that slight delay in her casting is a few seconds to long and someone doesn't survive.
