The Targ Handler Set is comprised of two Ground combat Pets, the Nanopulse War Targ and the Targ of Gre'thor. These targs may also be encountered in episodes. It is the first device-specific "set" to be added to Star Trek Online.
The Targ of Gre'thor is a twisted, demonic version of a targ, a mammalian, quadrupedal species native to Qo'noS.
Was he rescued from Gre'thor, or bred from ancient Dominion techniques? Regardless of his origins, this fierce beast is prepared to serve you in combat by tossing fiery projectiles at multiple foes. He specializes in ranged combat.
- “Afterlife” & “Leap of Faith”: Targs of Gre'thor may be encountered during the player's visit to Gre'thor.
Item description: Summons your Targ of Gre'thor ally. Spits fire bolts at distant targets, and will occasionally launch multiple explosive fire mortars to hit many foes at a time. Tries to stay close to you at all times, attacking from a distance.This combat companion remains with you for up to 5 minutes, but it can be targeted and defeated by enemies prior to this duration.
The Nanopulse War Targ is a mechanically-augmentioned version of a targ, a mammalian, quadrupedal species native to Qo'noS.
Originally trained by the famed targ tamers of House Mo'Kai, this particular beast has been made combat-ready and outfitted with deadly nanopulse blades to enhances its already impressive threat levels. This allows it to deal a combination of Physical and Plasma damage with its tusks in short range, and to lunge at distant foes for a similar attack. In addition to those, the technology also allows the beast to release a deadly electric pulse capable of causing immense damage to foes it is near.
- “Partisans”: During Aakar's ambush of the player and their allies in the Gorath System stronghold, a Nanopulse Warbeast Targ is summoned and subsequently defeated.
