— In-game description [?]
Become the Bear turns the user into a half-norn half-bear. The transformation applies the following multipliers to your primary attributes' base values (916 at level 80):
|Attribute||Multiplier|| Level 80|
While transformed, your weapon skills are replaced with the following skill set (and the right side of the skill bar is disabled).
|1||Swipe||¼||Lash out with bear claws, damaging foes in front of you.|
|Brutal Swipe||¼||Strike foes in front of you with bear claws, making them vulnerable.|
|2||Heavy Swipe||¼||5||Swipe at your foes knocking them back.|
|3||Maul||1½||5||Slash repeatedly at foe.|
|4||Roar||½||10||Roar, giving allies might.|
|5||Charge||3¾||15||Hold down to charge at foes.|
- On Ranger characters, using this elite skill will deactivate your pet until you return to normal. This removes stacking pet buffs such as Master's Bond from the pet.
In Guild Wars, norn opponents have the ability to transform into Bear Form which will change their appearance to that of a bear, but not their skills. The player can get a special skill called Ursan Blessing which will change their skills, but not their appearance.
