— In-game description


  • While in Beastmode, the player gains the attribute bonuses.
  • Despite what the description may suggest, this trait only grants recharge reduction to the pet's beast skill. It does not give recharge reduction to normal pet attacks, neither any of the merged Soulbeast skills, not even the merged Beastmode beast skill, which defaults to F3.
