Beast Mastery

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Beast Mastery is a secondary attribute of rangers.

Beast Mastery increases the damage dealt by your animal companion and its chance to inflict a critical hit. Many Ranger skills, especially those related to making your animal companion stronger, become more effective with higher Beast Mastery.

— in-game description

Inherent effects[edit]

Beast Mastery has three inherent effects:

  • Each rank of Beast Mastery increases the pet's chance to land a critical hit by about 1% (if both attacker and target are level 20).
  • The pet's base damage also increases with rank in the same way that mastering a weapon attribute does; see Damage calculation and pet damage for details.
  • Finally, each rank decreases the amount of time the owner's skills are disabled when their animal companion dies.
