The Lynx is the third pet obtained by a Lore-master, at level 30. It has the same level as the Lore-master itself.
It is naturally in stealth mode and tends to be more fragile than other pets, having lower morale. It has the ability to deal a lot of burst damage. The strongest attack of the lynx, Surprise Attack, has a high chance of a critical hit and can only be used from stealth. After use, the lynx will remain out of stealth for the rest of the fight. It also has a couple of AoE skills. The DPS (sustained damage) of the Lynx is average. The auto-attack damage is mediocre and it flanks little (not many opportunities to use Improved Staff-strike), although critical hits on auto-attacks do apply the DoT Savage Bleed on enemies. The lynx is a popular pet choice for leveling or questing Lore-masters who are not traited down the Master of Nature's Fury line.
The lynx has a mediocre flank rate.
The last three skills on the Lynx's Skill Bar are:
- Surprise Attack: Sneaks up to targeted foe and does a sneak attack with amazing critical damage
- Feral Strike: AoE attack
- Slashing Claws: AoE attack
The trait Noble Savage enhances the Lore-master's companion by improving its morale, power, attack speed, damage, critical chance, block, parry and evade chance, stealth and stealth detection, as well as granting it immunity to knockbacks.
Auto-attacks have a chance to activate Flanked! on an enemy target.
Auto-attacks from the rear have a chance to activate Harried! on an enemy target.
Auto-attacks cause Savage Bleed to occur on an enemy target on a critical hit.
