Torchlight 2 has been outfitted with a new patch that, among its various bug fixes and tweaks to current game systems, adds a couple more pets. Now you can have an owl or a badger following you around and doing your busywork for you.
Other additions from the patch notes include Russian and Polish language options, balance adjustments and fixes to the Engineer, Berserker, and Embermage, and pathing and collision fixes. Zombies also only strike once per explosion, and the game won't crash when wearing gear that requires a requirement reduction spell.
Probably most importantly to affected players, the game was apparently keeping some of them stuck without being able to advance their quests. That should be fixed now. But hey, owls!
