Beastmastery

From Archives of Lusternian Lore

Jump to: navigation, search
The ancient dracnari skill of Beastmastery allows the training and transformation of certain creatures, sometimes referred to as beasts, which can range from a simple horse to a great winged wyvern. By using certain alchemical reagents, beasts can be transformed to grow wings or taught to cast simple spells. Although you may have and train as many beasts as you like (and can afford the stable fees), you can only ever have one beast out at any one time.

If you dismiss a beast with the 'feed' option, it will feed out of its feedbag while it is in the stable.

Whip your beast into a fury and trample the ground. Any personal enemies who are prone in your location will be in danger of having their limbs crushed under your steed's deadly rampage. The number of limbs crushed is based partly on chance and partly on your steed's level. The amount of damage is based upon the level of your steed and number of limbs crushed. Further, the larger group of enemies that are trampled the fewer potential limbs will be crushed per individual (i.e., trampling 4-6 people will only potentially break 3 limbs per person, and over that the maximum that could be broken per person is 2 limbs.)

Raising And Training Beasts

Additional Notes:
Training a beast is a multiple step process.
  • Buy an egg, colt, or foal. See the Beasts page to see which ones are available where.
  • Bring it to the stable on Avechna's Peak or in your city or commune.
  • STABLE INCUBATE <egg> to start incubation, which takes about 30 game days.
  • STABLE REMOVE <beast> when the beast has matured.
  • Enroll your beast in a stable.
    • STABLE HOUSE <beast> ENROLL to enroll the beast in a stable.
    • STABLE PAY <beast> <months> to pay stabling fees.
    • You can have up to three years paid.
    • If it runs out, the stable will stop feeding your beast.
    • If he starves, he'll lose levels and eventually die permanently.
  • Take your beast out with you while you hunt or influence, so he can gain levels.
    • Beasts can be up to level 12.
    • If a beast dies, it will lose a level, return to its enrolled stable, and be unavailable for a while.
    • A beast of level 1 that dies is permanently dead and gone.
    • Beast levels will increase how much damage it can take, and how much it does in battle.
    • Beast levels have nothing to do with training, feeds, or reagents.
  • Choose the abilities to give your beast.
    • You can only train abilities you yourself know in Beastmastery.
    • Even if a beast already has an ability (innately or because someone else taught it), you can't use it if you don't have the skill.
    • Each ability requires a certain number of Trains of either Body, Mind, or Spirit.
    • Some abilities also have other abilities as prerequisites.
    • A beast can have only 600 total Trains.
    • You will divvy up the 600 between Body, Mind, and Spirit by feeding the beast with the appropriate feeds, then applying the corresponding reagents.
    • The innate abilities a particular kind of beast comes with don't count against the 600 trains and don't have to be trained at all.
    • If you make a mistake and give it too much Body, Mind, or Spirit, so you will run out of the 600 trains before you get all you need for other abilities, you can't get it back except by starting over using wackodoru reagent.
    • Building the beast's Body, Mind, and Spirit also determines how much Health, Mana, and Ego it will have.
    • Some abilities use Mana or Ego, so as you choose abilities, be sure your beast has enough Mana or Ego to power them, and enough Body to survive long enough to use them.
  • Feed your beast to build its strength during its first year
    • BEAST FILL FEEDBAG WITH <feed> to feed your beast.
    • meatfeed and oatfeed will increase your beast's Body (and thus Health).
    • fishfeed and vegfeed will increase your beast's Mind (and thus Mana).
    • eggfeed and fruitfeet will increase your beast's Spirit (and thus Ego).
    • Different feeds can also affect the appearance it will get when it is a year old.
    • If you don't like the appearance you get, zimoru reagent will re-randomize it.
  • Apply reagents to build up your beast's Trains.
    • Apply bodoru to build Body Trains.
    • Apply mindoru to build Mind Trains.
    • Apply suporu to build Spirit Trains.
    • You can only apply a reagent after the beast has eaten enough of the corresponding feed, usually two.
    • STABLE HOUSE <beast> FEED to keep your beast eating from its feedbag while in the stable to speed up this process. Otherwise, it'll eat generic stuff the stable provides which keeps it alive but doesn't add Body, Mind, or Spirit, or prepare it to receive reagents.
  • Train your beast with abilities.
    • BEAST TRAIN <ability> to train an ability.
    • You must have the available and unused trains to do this.
  • Be sure to keep your beast in the stable when you're offline so it won't be killed or starve to death.
