Lore Master Mounted Companion

With Update 11 comes the availability to summon a Mounted Companion for Lore-masters.

For each class of mount -- Light, Medium and Heavy -- the "Yellow" trait Tree provides specialized improvements to the mounted skill set of the character.

For the Lore-master that includes the ability to summon a Companion while mounted!

At release, that companion is a War Wolf.

Fourth level unlock: Riding Companion, which in turn unlocks the trait "Bred for War" which can be leveled up to 3.

Bullroarer release notes

Mounted Combat Update

Mounted Combat receives a significant update, with the yellow trait tree being integrated into the base War-steed for optimal maneuverability. In place of the previous movement trait tree, each class will get their own specific yellow tree, with boost and skills tailored to each role.

Lore-master

  • The Lore-master Mounted Combat pet will now behave similarly to its un-mounted counterparts. On critical hit, the pet will apply a bleed, and will have a chance to slow when attacking enemies from behind. Each of its attacks also have a chance to proc the 'Flanked!' effect, which will now cause Enduring Embers to do additional damage, and Metal and Mettle to provide a power heal.
  • The Bred For War trait will now increase your pet's damage, bleed damage, and chance to flank enemies.


Implementation Observation Notes

  • This "Yellow Tree" is the same for all mounts -- Light/Medium/Heavy
  • You can activate the mounted companion using a minimal number of points -- a total of 8 points are need to max the "War-Wolf."
  • Once activated in any trait configuration, "Yellow Tree Traits" are available in all Stances.
