Meld with your pet.

— In-game description [?]


The ranger's profession mechanic is altered when in Beastmode. The F1-F2 skills are determined by the pet's family, and the F3 skill is determined by the pet's archetype. Additionally, the pet's archetype provides attribute bonuses and some pet traits and effects apply to the player instead.
