The cat will mark all nodes that can be gathered with your EQUIPPED gathering tool. It'll usually mark the closest so 3 cats isn't much more effective than 1 except it marks more quickly. The mark is a red pillar in the game world and a blue ring ping on the map. I'm not sure what the delay on marking is governed by, I assume it's the same as their pickup gathering speed.

Was wondering myself. Didn't think about equipping the tool.

Thanks.

Seems to me like the cat detects things way after you've run by it. The only time I see a notice is if I'm stopped in that specific area.  For the money we spent on cats, they should be able to detect things much faster within the whole minimap area.

You will see yellow-orange spots (not like quests mobs, a bit more faded) on the map, probably depending on the tool.

I just re-tested it. There is nothing showing on the mini-map for me. And I still have to stop in an area before I get the pillar of light. Kinda regret having bought the cat TBH. I could have used those pearls on inventory space.

you need to right click pet button (bit buggy sometimes) and it will list all you pets underneath. then left click a pet and make sure its special ability is on

The ability seems to always be off by default when I summon the cat so I have to enable it in the upper left hand corner of the UI.

Orange spots are enemies you need to kill for quests.

Thank you, forgot about the options there that got it all working for cat thank you.

The mark is a red pillar in the game world and a blue ring ping on the map. I'm not sure what the delay on marking is governed by, I assume it's the same as their pickup gathering speed.

I just want to add, if you are mostly chopping trees or digging for ores, a cat is really not that helpful. But if you often harvest wild herbs for alchemy, you will love you cat, because wild herbs are not that easy to spot.

Even with 3 cats active the skill isn't really helpful, as it's triggering way too late most of the time. It seem so be suffering from cooldown/short range/lag.
