Notes[edit]

  • This skill will activate only if you do not have an animal companion and the target is a charmable animal.
    • It can target friendly and hostile creatures, but not allies nor animals already charmed to be pets.
    • If you try to use it on an invalid target, it will fail to activate (and you will see the relevant error message in red text).
  • Once an animal is charmed, there is no special value to bringing this skill over Comfort Animal or Heal as One.
  • Although this skill is unaffected by your rank in Beast Mastery, your pet's attacks benefit from a higher rank and you recover more quickly if your pet dies.
  • Even if you replace this skill with another (e.g. a mission-specific skill such as Disarm Trap), your pet will remain with you. If you rezone and retain the replacement skill, the pet will not zone with you.
  • PvE characters and heroes have to charm their own pets; PvP players start off with an Elder Wolf.
  • Be careful when charming a pet with nearby heroes or henchmen: the target will become hostile and could be killed. To prevent this, flag your allies farther away and/or set heroes to avoid combat.
  • There are six special versions of this skill, notably the one used in the Codex Arena.
Anomaly Anomaly. Although technically considered a pet, occasionally a charmed animal will retain the red wording associated with a hostile enemy just after completing the charm animal skill.
