Suggest moving to Beast master instead of beast master (See Minion master) -elviondale (tahlk) 17:48, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Same article :) - anja talk 17:56, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Why are piercing damage pets coveted? --Vhalantru 18:16, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Why would a pet need lower Health and higher damage in order to properly tank? -- Gordon Ecker 21:27, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Working on a semi-major overhaul - taking out opinion-based arguments and replacing with (hopefully) just the facts. Also dealing with minor formatting and grammar and evening out advantages as well as disadvantages of this kind of build. Riallews 12:09, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Okay well that didn't take so long... hope it's an improvement - I didn't remove the cleanup tag in case more might be needed. Riallews 12:48, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Shoudl be "Beast master" since the attribute is Beast Mastery. BTW I'll work on this thing, it needs some redoing.User Ereanor sig.jpgreanor 01:39, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

I intend to go over several of the build articles already existing and revamp them (and maybe write some new ones), however I want am still waiting whether anyone disagrees with the proposed Guild Wars Wiki:Formatting/Builds. I guess if noone objects in the next two days, I'll start changing articles accordingly. --Xeeron 12:22, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Delete[edit]

Delete this or just use the page as lingo definition, something along the lines of: A beast master is someone who uses the ranger pet to deal damage. Anything more is venturing into the realm of builds. SystemisFlawed

Check out GWW:BUILDS. --Xeeron 13:13, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
I rewrote the build, as it seemed to call anyone with a pet a 'beast master,' rather than focusing more on the headgear + sup rune utilizing beast-master. --Berk Avci 00:53, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Companionship[edit]

An anonymous user has recently added (and poorly coded) Companionship into the common use section. I've fixed it and moved it to its proper place, but I don't think it is all that widely used, considering that it does not rez the pet. However, I have no beast master build whatsoever, and am curious to know whether anyone would forego a rez skill for their pets (probably not), or bring two heals. If not... dibs on removing the content. OK, maybe not. --Chaiyo Kaldor talk contribs 23:23, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

I've tried the skills, it's not really all the good, but then again that's my own personal preference. — Eloc 02:28, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, no 100% beast-master can easily sacrifice pet-rez. --Relax and Play 02:38, 16 May 2008 (UTC)
I use companionship for my heals, not so much the pet. But I also still bring comfort animal. It works good. Its all about how and when you use the skills. I also use melandru's resilience cause lets face it, from time to time, they will ignore the pet and come for you and you need some resistance. I have taken my build to some of the highest lvl areas in eye of the north and it held up just fine. I did more dmg than other ppl in the party as well as avoided dying the majority of the time unless someone was stupid and brought every enemy in the area down on us lol. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:99.25.184.89 (talk).

Links[edit]

How funny, not a single link to the beast mastery attribute page. Justice 05:18, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Pet updates etc.[edit]

Changed a few of the notes, added 33% less and more in pve & removed note about a MM for a pet. No MM has one minion ^^ --User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 12:13, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

A Few Things[edit]

I normally don't go on this wiki, as a result, I don't have an account here and am not logged in. I'll point out a few "errors" in the page, since I don't want to make changes while I'm not logged in.

- Under Strengths, you refer to the BM as being one of the most powerful tanks with Call of Protection and Symbiotic Bond. This isn't completely correct, since the BM is the subject being referred to. Call of Protection is factored in after Symbiotic bond, which means that the damage done to the Ranger is not reduced. Otyugh's Cry, on the other hand, is factored in before Symbiotic bond, and as a result, reduces damage to both the the Ranger and the Pet. So, Call of Protection makes the pet an effective tank, not the BM, especially since Symbiotic Bond has a very long duration, and can effectively become a death sentence of a Beast Master if they aren't paying close attention to the damage their pet is taking.

- Also, in the section Disadvantages, Thirsty River is mentioned to be "the very last non-elite mission in Nightfall" with reference to the giants one can slay for a morale boost. Thirsty River is not a mission in Nightfall, but a mission in Prophecies. You must complete it and two other missions before attempting to ascend at Augury Rock.

Theres nothing wrong with correcting it yourself, and if your worried about your IP being displayed publicly its shown more clear on talk pages then mainspace articles C4K3 User C4K3 Signature.jpg Talk 16:35, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Thirsty River is not made out to be the last non-elite mission in NF. "such as the giants of the Thirsty River, and the very last non-elite mission in Nightfall." The article states Thirsty River as well as the last non-elite mission. Shadow Shadow Runner sig 1.jpg Runner 16:37, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
