Aside from just being another obtainable pet, Aslan is actually quite an important character in WitchSpring R. Aslan plays a big role in the game’s storyline as the temple guardian of the Temple of Arua. But despite being one of the most powerful beings in the game, story-wise, he is immediately “overshadowed” by another pet that will be obtainable around the same time.
Guardian animal of Arua Temple.
Aslan is first and foremost and NPC that Pieberry will be interacting with over the course of the game’s story. As one could guess, Aslan becomes a party member joining Pieberry’s collection of pet companions. His skills scale mostly with MAG and deals lightning damage, perfect against enemies’ weak to the element. Aside from being a strong combat summon, he is also a rideable pet that acts as a replacement to Caric. A replacement that will last a meager 5-10 mins.

Your first encounter with Aslan will be during your first little excursion outside the Black Witch’s Forest, in South Island when you reach the entrance of the Temple of Arua. Here, you’ll also be fighting him to enter the temple. However, this isn’t actually where you’ll be able to get him as a pet. Instead, Aslan joins your party after a while through the story, when it finally takes you to Aimhard’s Temple. He’ll plead with you to not hurt his lion brothers and instead opts in to join your party in order to prevent any conflict between his brethren and Pieberry.
After first getting Aslan as a pet, my first impression was “wow” and “holy shit”. Because his numbers says how much damage he deals, and those numbers are nothing to scoff at. On paper, he has one of the highest damage scaling in the game in terms of raw power. In practice however, he comes across as a little too underwhelming. But if you’re going for a full MAG build then I say go for it! Aslan is still pretty effective against most foes especially against enemies that are weak against lightning.
