Job OverviewEdit


Available after completing the quests Save My Son and Path of the Beastmaster, these experts in monster research have trained tirelessly to communicate with, and even control the animals of Vana'diel. Based on their knowledge of beasts, Beastmasters (BST) can charm the beasts of Vana'diel to fight alongside them or obtain items that summon beasts called Familiars through the Call Beast job ability.
Beastmasters are generally considered the best solo job in the game. Beastmasters often can be found soloing monsters or teaming up with other Beastmasters in all-Beastmaster parties. In a conventional party, a Beastmaster will most frequently fill the roles of damage dealer and puller, and augment their damage with "Jug Pets".

Pet's Effect on Experience Edit

  • A Beastmaster takes a 30% penalty to his own experience points if he has a charmed pet when a monster dies. The 30% penalty is only applied to the Beastmaster and not to the rest of the party.
  • The 30% penalty is not assessed if the Beastmaster is using a pet summoned by the Call Beast ability when the monster dies.
