A Look At The Final Fantasy XI Character The Beastmaster

By: Hunter Crowell

The beastmaster is simply what it literally means, which is a master of beasts. It tames monsters and uses them for its own purpose. Creatures do not remain tamed forever though as the time you get to keep them is random. Beastmasters are not as powerful as warriors, but they are very good for those who like to go solo or always hunt and go alone for they can tame monsters to come to their aid. The beastmaster can use many different active abilities to tame and command its' pets.

The beastmaster's job revolves around their ability to tame monsters. A tamed monster becomes the beastmaster's pet, following the beastmaster around and attacking their foes upon command.

Beastmasters usually tame monsters of equal or lower level. While beastmasters can tame higher-level monsters, it is not advisable to do this as these monsters can return to their hostile and wild state and you could lose control over it at unexpected times.

Beastmasters can command their pets to attack a foe. The pet will remain totally allegiant to the beastmaster until the pet dies or the maximum duration for control expires or the monster breaks the spell.

The beastmaster is an extra job that must be quested before reaching level 30 and at that time it becomes available to your character. As such, you will have a good working knowledge of the final fantasy xi world by the time you are ready to attempt the beastmaster quest.

Switching to the beastmaster job for the first time (just like switching to any other job for the first time) means that you start at level 1 in that job.

One of the main uses of a beastmaster pet is as a tank. Often, monsters attack the first thing that attacks them. This allows the beastmaster to have their pet absorb a large amount of the damage in a fight while simultaneously keeping their party safer.

To become a beastmaster make sure you have the right level required. You can now go to the lower jeuno area and talk to the npc named dietmund, located at the G11 merchants door. Click on the door and the character will come out and would ask you to get him some night flowers. Next go to location F8 of qufim island. Walk down the small passage at the cliff and click on the night flowers. Remember that you can only obtain the flowers at night when they start to glow. You can now go back to dietmund. There will be a cut scene, after this is finished talk to the chocobo house owner brutus in upper jeuno to complete the quest.

After all of this is done you can now be a beastmaster at your mog house.
