On top of that... just make the game downloadable from the website. Screw the Microsoft store and all its errors and bloatedness.

At higher levels, I found (until M$ store crapped out and my .exe file disappeared) that Wanda/Jinga for durability and Redran for damage were the best two pets. I've seen some Maron/Melon fans out there for the large damage on aggressive bosses. Viola has some fans out there too due to change and the skill of healing reserve pets faster (forget the name). Trim was good at lower levels, but Redran is better if you have him leveled up due to the ability to attack multiple enemies. I'd switch between wanda/Jinga and Redran with Viola as back-up as a top 3 rotation. Mix in who you want after that.
