    Fort, Lai, Eka, and Arby

    Stance Change

    Beast Tamers do not have 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Job Advancements. Instead they 4 different animal modes with their own separate skill trees. The skills can only be used while in the chosen mode. There is a Bear Mode, Leopard Mode, Hawk Mode, and Cat Mode. Bear Mode and Leopard Mode is available at Lv. 10. However, Hawk Mode is unlocked at Lv. 30 and Cat Mode is unlocked at Lv. 50

    Skill Tree

    New skills are unlocked at certain levels and after allocating a set amount of Skill Points (SP) into that animal skill tree. However, you will not be able to max all your skills as there is not enough SP. Additionally, any skill effects such as passives and actives are only granted while in that particular animal mode
