How to travel on horses, mastodons and other animals, how to enlist the support of animal companions
After creating a character in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous , choosing a class, race and alignment, you will probably wonder where to find your first companions. In addition to standard companions representing different types of races and classes, the game has “furry” (and not only) companions – various animals that differ from the summoned familiars. In this guide, we will tell you about the system of animal companions, as well as give practical advice that will allow you to find mounts and move them around the locations.
The first thing to look out for is the Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous character class. The availability of companion animals and mounts directly depends on his choice. Some archetypes allow you to get animal companions already at the first rank, for others the function is unlocked later (for example, a standard-bearer cavalryman receives a horse only at rank 5 of the class).
Here are the archetypes for adding companion animals:
- Barbarian – Mad Dog
- Horseman – All archetypes except Follower of the Spear and Standard Bearer
- Druid – Real-Time Defender, Primordial Druid, Fairytongue
- Hunter – All archetypes except Forester
- Inquisitor – Hunter of Faith
- Magus – Mystic rider
- Monk – Sohei
- Sorcerer – Forest Sorcerer
After choosing a class, continue the character creation process and select any of the available animals. Pay attention to the types of their attacks, as well as the size of the animals. For example, Triceratops, Bear, and Mastodon are considered medium sized companions and can be placed on the front lines as they are more powerful and can withstand severe blows.
By the way, about the size of the animals. Their dimensions can be increased at the fourth or seventh level. You will be able to use the animal as a mount as soon as it reaches a large size. The riding skill will be displayed in the action bar. The only exception is the horse, which by default is considered a large ally, and therefore can be used as a means of transportation from the very beginning of the game.
Companion animals and mounts in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous have their own portraits in the squad bar. You can control them manually and attack opponents. Likewise, you can assign them abilities, skills and abilities as they level up. But familiars obtained by magic are creatures that appear on the map and give some kind of passive bonuses for testing skills. No more. Finally, their summons are usually temporary and have a limited daily number of uses.
Do not forget that you can retrain your character at any time to try other options.
