Beast Master Tips & Builds

  • Don't pick Beast Tamer at level 1 if you intend to eventually become a Beast Master, you can't have both a beast companion and a familiar out at the same time. This has been patched, it is now possible to have both Companion & Familiar present.

      The tooltip says the bear can "endure heavy attacks" but has dramatically less health than the spider, and the spider also boasts a 3 armor rating class over the bear, has a +3 damage on rolls, and can web and possibly poison.

      Bear has a taunt, but that's basically useless with it's hp pool being 19 at level 3, whereas the spider has 32 and can entangle w/ web.

      I'm assuming these stat lines were accidentally swapped with one another, or they will improve the bear eventually, but as it stands there's almost no reason to use one other than RPing.

        i got a bug that every time i summon my pet i get into a fight with it, but i can control it
        and i don't know how to fix it... that's kinda harsh since it does make the beast hunter useless and it happened after i killed the goblins at the entrance of the goblin camp

          Note: Don't pick Beast Tamer at level 1 if you intend to eventually become a Beast Master, you can't have both a beast companion and a familiar out at the same time as of when I am writing this so it is a bit of a waste.
