Friend in Need is an aura available as part of the Members Loyalty Programme and can be purchased from Xuan in Burthorpe, for 3,500 Membership Loyalty Points. Upon its release, it was on sale for 400 points instead of 3,500. On the third release of the loyalty shop, it was put on special again for 1,750 points. This aura summons Party Pete to distract opponents using the medium of dance. Distracted foes suffer a delay to their next attack, but does not work in PvP. It is activated for twelve seconds and has a recharge time of fifteen minutes.
Its usefulness is extremely limited as most dangerous monsters are unaffected and the recharge time is very long compared to the active time. Also while in use, another monster may attack you forcing you to attack him instead of your original target.
The monsters that are not affected by this aura include:
