  • Resounding Timbre Resounding TimbreCommands apply additonal boons around you and gain reduced recharge.
  • Elevated Bond Elevated Bond — Gain access to Stances. Survival in the desert has enhanced your connection to your pet, granting you the ability to meld with them by entering beastmode. Traits that affect your pet may affect you differently while in beastmode.


In PvE, skelk and jaguar seem to ignore this shout's revealed effect.
  • Cannot be used without a valid targeted enemy.
  • If the pet is in passive mode, activating this shout will have the same effect as the 'Attack my Target' [F1] command - It'll make the pet attack your targeted foe, and once said foe is defeated, the pet will be back to passive mode.
  • Using this command while commanding your pet to use its unique skill [F2] will cancel the unique skill, but the "Sic 'Em!" (effect) will now persist if you give commands to your pet.
  • While using the minor trait Elevated Bond in the soulbeast specialization, the skill gives only 25% bonus damage in PvP and WvW while being in Beastmode.
