“Pet Lending gives Wizards a powerful in-person hatching option to lend their pet for hatching to another Wizard. And as a bonus you can do this without being charged Gold or having your Wizard’s Hatching Slot timer started. It’s a wonderful opportunity to exchange adventure stories as you also exchange pet types!
New pet features wouldn’t be complete without rewards for having fun going through the process. You will get advance warning before the hatch process begins on what type and quality of reward you are expected to receive. The value of the reward will depend on the pet lending level and pedigree. Also, you will receive a badge for many of these lending actions!
Note that there is a limit to how many times you can lend a pet (based on your Wizard’s level).”
If you’re being lent the pet, select the hatch option. From there, everything will proceed as usual. The cost to create the new pet will remain the same based upon the pet’s age. Keep in mind older pets will cost more to Hatch than younger ones. You can tell if someone is lending you their pet by looking beneath their pet’s stat block; it should say “Lending”.

I must applaud the Wizard101 Team for the feature they’ve added to the Hatchery. For years players have been in the game forums asking for more Hatch Slots. With this update, KingsIlse not only solved this problem, but they took things an extra step. They not only gave us a system that makes Hatching easier and more affordable. They included a system the reinforces and rewards players for helping one another.
No longer do we have to make the difficult choice between helping someone else with their pet or working on our own. Gone is the stress and struggle of finding someone willing to Hatch. Players no longer have to feel guilty for turning someone away or wait an entire day to Hatch.
Hatch Peppers are now much more comfortable to get and are more useful. Grinding and Gardening aren’t the only way to get Mega Snacks anymore. Which makes snacks of that caliber more available to players who struggle to get them. The same goes for the select few Elixirs we can now craft.
I am amazed by the impact of this little feature. Pet Lending has made the eternal quest to achieve the perfect pet that much easier. With that said, I look forward to what future updates will bring.
