Whistles are Instruments. Contrary to other instruments, they cannot be used to tame animals. As for 1.2.0 r59, whistles are used to call for pets. Could be helpful in situations where pets are out of sight or if they were ordered to wait for the player.

Desirability[edit source]

Could be useful for players who are heavily dependent on their pets.

Guaranteed/Common sources[edit source]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. Since r69, Bards and Farmers start with one whistle. Note that Bards typically begin the game with two or three random instruments, which can include whistles. Should your character be created with only whistles (which should be impossible or at least very rare), consider restarting the game.
