A ranger's skill is oft demonstrated by their menagerie of tamed beasts. From bears to bristlebacks and beyond, the successful ranger knows the secrets of communicating with these creatures multifarious. In this fascinating series of personal accounts, ex-corsair and ranger extraordinaire Abasi details the complex intricacies of these relationships.

Using a suite of skills typical to rangers of any experience level, Abasi demonstrates proven methods for taming beasts of every shape and size using the proper body language, sounds and tools. "It's a back and forth," explains Abasi. "It's a negotiation in a different language, and each creature has its own language to master."


  • When interacted with on the bookshelf, it opens up a new book interface, a feature which was shipped with the Daybreak content release. The new book window is used for many (but not all) of the books found throughout Istan.
