 1.2) Author Information
Ello there and welcome to my Beastmaster guide for Final Fantasy XI!  My name
is Lord Alchemy, and I have contributed a few game reviews (including one for
FFXI).  I can be found on the Fenrir server, character name Moriros.  I have
played a few jobs, and I started as a Monk, subbed Thief, and played a little
bit of the mage classes.  I ended up leaning towards the Beastmaster job since
it was rather unique.  I never saw too many Beastmasters in the game, so I
thought I would check it out.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.6) Basic Beastmaster info
Beastmasters are the experts of solo playing.  You can group, but I will get to
that later. You can solo though, at pretty much any level.  The main ability
that allows BSTs to do this is the charm ability.  This puts a monster under
the BSTs control, and will fight for the BST aslong as it remains charmed.
Charmed pets will eventually turn on their master, but the more charisma you
have, the longer the monster stays your pet, and the easier it is to charm
monsters.  At higher levels it is wise to not try to charm anything past
"Even match" (found out by checking) because tough mobs, if charmed at all,
tend to turn on their master rather quickly.  Also its important to know that
pets that become uncharmed, do not give EXP when killed.

Now, to get to the party info.  BSTs do great damage per second (DPS) with a
pet, but there is a big problem (mainly for the BST), you get a 30% exp cut
from having a pet!  This generally means that you will prefer going solo unless
you choose not to charm a pet, thus killing your DPS and making you somewhat
useless in the party, depending on your sub job.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.8) Role of the Beastmaster
The role of a BST, is to kill stuff.  This can either be done alone or in a
group.  Alone, the main role of a BST is to tame monsters, and have them fight
for him/her. Other then that, what else they do is determined by their sub job.
Most of the BST skills are related to melee and charming monsters.

Now, to clarify how the BST effects exp in a group.  If the BST charms anything
below Tough, the only exp affected is the BSTs, and its still the basic 30% cut
that BSTs should be used to.  But if a BST charms a Tough or higher, the pet
acts as a member of the party, and since its at a higher lvl, it cuts the
whole parties exp.

2.2) How to unlock the Beastmaster job
MUST BE LEVEL 30 TO OBTAIN THE QUEST!
Quest Giver: Dietmund
Location: Lower Jeuno (G-11)
Dietmund is located at top door near the entrance of Lower Jeuno. He comes out
of the door when it is opened. To do the quest, wait till it is night. (18:00 -
4:00).  Go to the edge of the cliff at Qufim at F-8.  There is a path leading
down to the item.  Once at bottom, a Kraken can be seen, but sometimes it isn't
even there!  If it is, either try to get a group to take it down or sneak past
it using various WHM spells, such as Sneak, Invisibility and Deoderize.  Go
back and talk to Dietmund and then talk to Brutus near the chocobo stables in
Upper Jueno.  After all that, the job of the Beastmaster is given.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.4) Starting Stats for Races
     Hume Elvaan Tarutaru Galka Mithra
HP    30    32      26     35    30
MP    0     0       0      0     0
STR   6     7       5      7     6
DEX   7     7       7      7     9
VIT   6     7       6      8     6
AGI   5     4       6      5     6
INT   6     5       8      6     6
MND   6     7       6      6     6
CHR   8     8       8      7     7

The starting stat bonus that you get is actually
HP: +2
MP: +0
STR: +0
DEX: +1
VIT: +0
AGI: -1
INT: +0
MND: +0
CHR: +2

Determining the starting stats for a BST is just adding that to the starting
stats of any race.

Another skill that Beastmasters have, that isn't really a trait or ability,
is the Wide Scan option in the map area.  It allows you to see mobs that are
within your scan range.

Now, lets look at how some of the BSTs combat skills rank up against other jobs
Evade is above average but not by much
Shield is below average but not by much
Parry is above average but not by much
At lower lvls, your combat skills wont be drastically different then say for
example, a WAR, but at later lvls, you will notice a larger difference.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.8) Beastmaster Macro assistance
Creating macros for a Beastmaster are VERY helpful, since it will become tire-
some constantly selecting Pet abilities from the menu.  Lets get started.

For a pet ability, use
/pet "Ability Name" 

for job abilities, use
/ja "Job Ability Name"  or 
the  or  depends on what the skill is used, for example,
for heal, use  but for calm, use 

for weapons skills, use
/ws "Name of the Weapon Skill" 

for good renkei ws macros, do something like
/p USING "NAME OF WEAPON SKILL" IN 3! 
/wait 3
/ws "Name of the Weapon Skill" 

Now, if you end up subbing a job with magic, you can use magic macros
/ma "Name of Magic"  or 
again, the  or  depends on the type of magic, curative or destructive.

for other macro assistance, see the macro faq.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.9) Leveling Assistance
For a Beastmaster, you probably will do alot of solo playing, so it can be kind
of hard to make a cookie cutter leveling guide.  The main thing that changes
how you will be leveling is what sub job your sporting, because it will have
different effects on your skills and how you can solo.  There are basically
two ways of leveling your Beastmaster while soloing

1.) Charm a mob, and attack other pets at the same as your mob.
This allows for less downtime, since you and your pet will be doing damage.
But you will have to put up with an annoying exp decrease, but it isn't that
bad.  This is generally the easiest and safest way to level, aslong as your pet
stays charmed.  Thats not a big problem if you have high charisma though.
A good way to do this is to charm a Decent Challenge, and then you can exp
chain up to 3 evens, as long as they don't link and you can find them fast
enough.

2.) Charming a mob, and having your pet solo a mob thats slightly stronger, and
debuffing the strong mob with magic so that your pet can get in alot of damage
before it dies.
This way of leveling is alot riskier.  Not only do you have to make sure your
pet dies, but you have to make sure your pet atleast did enough damage to allow
you to finish off the mob.  The easiest and safest way of doing this is to
charm an Even Match and have it attack a Tough.  Then use spells or skills to
give your pet any kind of advantage.  Hopefully your pet will get the mob down
to HP low enough for you to finish off the mob with few problems.  This gener-
ally means more down time, but you get higher exp from the kills.

If anyone else has some good tips they would like to share, feel free to drop
me a line, and I will put it into this faq.
===============================================================================
3.0) Job, Sub job, and race information
===============================================================================
3.2) Race information
For a Beastmaster, charisma is the most important stat, since it governs how
easily you charm mobs, and how long they stayed charmed for.  Because of this,
Galkas and Mithras make the worst solo playing Beastmaster.  They are
playable, just not the best since they have poor charisma.  Humes, Elvaans, and
Taru Tarus make the best since they have the highest charisma.  So, Im going to
focus on those three classes.

Hume:
They make very well rounded BSTs, because if you end up subbing WHM, they make
good use of the mage skills, but also make decent warriors.  Very well rounded
and they make a nice choice for BST.

Elvaan:
They make better melee BSTs, but if they sub WHM, they have poor MP.  They have
higher HP, and STR then humes, making them better for melee damage and tanking.
They have lower MP though, so they can really make much use of WHM spells.

Taru Taru:
They make for some decent BSTs, since they have alot more MP the either of the
other two races, but they make poor warriors.  Because of this, they will
spend more time in the back casting suppost magic, assuming their sub is WHM.

Now, the other two races do not make poor Beastmasters, but they have to equip
more items that add to charisma, since they don't have much of their own.
Galkas have the most HP, so they can tank nicely, and Mithra have more dex
and agility, so they hit and dodge a good amount.  But I would prefer one of
the other races since they have higher charisma.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.4) Sub job decision
Since you need to be level 30 to even acquire the BST job, you should make
good use of your sub job.  So, I will take the time to go down the list.
Also, since version update 1.1 to 1.2, I have added a list of all the spells/
abilities you can have as that sub job.  For now, the cap for your sub is lvl
37, since the max for main is lvl 75.  Also, the lvls shown are what lvl as a
BST (main job) you will get the abilities/traits/magic.

Sub jobs:

Warrior:
Warrior makes a good sub job if you plan to party as a BST, since BST have a
good amount of defense, and you can pull.  Playing solo though, it doesn't add
much.  You can provoke mobs off of your pets, you will be stronger and do
better damage then usual, and you will also get Double Attack, which is rather
nice to have.
Job abilities:
Provoke: lvl 10
Berserk: lvl 30
Defender:lvl 50
War Cry: lvl 70

Job Traits:
Defense Up: lvl 20
Resist Virus: lvl 30
Double Attack: lvl 50
Attack Up: lvl 60
Resist Virus: lvl 70

Thief:
This Combo isn't that bad.  Since you can send a pet in first then follow up
with a sneak attack. This combo will tend to be on the rich side, since they
get all the treasure since they solo, and the treasure they get is amplified
by the thief skills.  This also is a decent choice if you plan to party as a
BST, since you
can use sneak and trick attack.
Job abilities:
Steal: lvl 10
Sneak Attack: lvl 30
Flee: lvl 50
Trick Attack: lvl 50
Pick Pocket: lvl 70

Job Traits:
Gil Steal: lvl 10
Evasion Up: lvl 20
Treasure Hunter: lvl 30
Resist Gravity: lvl 40
Evasion Up: lvl 60

Monk:
Monk makes an ok sub, but not very benefical.  It adds a good amount of HP,
which is helpful for solo, but the hand-to-hand skills are completely useless.
Counter is nice, but everything else is wasted.  The only pluss is the nice
HP boost.
Job abilities:
Boost: lvl 10
Dodge: lvl 30
Focus: lvl 50
Chakra: lvl 70

Job Traits:
Martial Arts: lvl 1
Counter: lvl 20
Hp Boost: lvl 30
Martial Arts: lvl 50
Hp Boost: lvl 70

Blackmage:
Poor sub job.  Low MP, very few nuking magic, and no skills or stat boosts that
really help you as a BST.  The various "- Spike" spells are kinda nice to have
since most of the time, if you engage an enemy at the same time as your pet,
your the one who is going to be tanking since pets don't hold hate to well.
This might not be too bad for early levels, but it isn't the best for early
levels either.  Best pick something else.
Job Abilities:
Sign of Spirit: lvl 30

Blizzardaga: lvl 64
Aero II: lvl 68
Bio II: lvl 70
Thunderaga I: lvl 72

Whitemage:
Most BSTs will agree, this is the best sub job you can have as a BST.  The real
draw is the Charisma boost, since WHMs have alot of Charisma.  The White magic
is also very nice.  Being able to toss out a few cures, debuff, buff, and all
the other curative magic REALLY helps.
Job Abilities:
Divine Seal: lvl 30

Redmage:
Not too bad a sub, but not the best either.  You get the En-spells, which add
elemental damage to your weapons, you get fewer curative spells, and you get
some more buff/debuffing spells.  The stat boosts aren't anything special.
Job Abilities:

Ew, nothing special here.  You already have wide scan, the bow skills are
useless, but scavenger is rather nice.  The stat boosts aren't very helpful
either.
Sharpshooter: lvl 1

Job Traits:
Precaution: lvl 10
Accuracy Boost: lvl 20
Rapid Shot: lvl 30

Bard:
This actually isn't too bad a choice for a sub job.  It adds ALOT of
charisma, but the songs are kind of gimped, since you can't equip an
instrument.  Not to bad of a choice though.
Job Ability:
NONE! yeah... no job abilties earned with this combo >.<

Job Traits:
Resist Silence: lvl 10
Resist Silence: lvl 50

Obado: lvl 66
Strength Etude: lvl 68
Pian III: lvl 70
Light Carol: lvl 72
Requiem III: lvl 74

Dark Knight:
Nothing special here, good melee stat boosts, but nothing else.  The traits and
abilities don't add anything very benefical, and neither is the BLM, since not
only do you have to deal with lower MP from sub, but DRKs dont have very much
to begin with.
Job Abilities:
Arcane Circle: lvl 10
Last Resort: lvl 30
Weapon Bash: lvl 40
Darkness: lvl 60

Abosorb MND: lvl 62
Tractor: lvl 64
Absorb CHR: lvl 66
Thunder I: lvl 70
Absorb VIT: lvl 70
Absorb AGI: lvl 74

Paladin:
Defense up traits, and other melee job abilties and traits just make you a
gimp tank, and the half level white magic isnt that helpful since you will
have poor MP with PLD as a sub.  Nothing that boosts your main abilities.
Job Abilities:
Holy Circle: lvl 10
Shield Bash: lvl 30
Sentinel: lvl 60
Protect: lvl 70

Job Traits:

Banish: lvl 68

Ninja:
Ninjitsu is always helpful, but very expensive.  Dual Wield doesn't help too
much since you wouldn't be able to equip a shield if you had two weapons.
Again, not to great of a choice.
Job Abilities:
Again... no job abilties gained from this subjob. >.<

Job Traits:
Stealth: lvl 10
Resist Bind: lvl 10
Dual Wield: lvl 10

Ninjitsu:*

Samurai:
Nice boost to TP gain, but if you play solo, you wont be doing many renkeis
anyways.  Otherwise, nothing special.

Silent Concentration: lvl 60

Job Traits:
Resist Blind: lvl 10
Store TP: lvl 20

Dragoon:
Ewwwwwwwww.  Bad choice.  This job generally makes a bad subjob, because its
main strength is summoning the Wyrven, but if its your sub, you won't be able
too.  No reason at all to sub Dragoon.

Summoner:
Uh, you won't be getting anything good from this.  You will have a good amount
of MP, but it won't do you any good with half level summons and no spells to
cast.  Not only will the half level summons suck, but they make it so you cant
charm, since you can only have one pet >.<
Job Abilities:
Attack: lvl 1
Call: lvl 1
Release: lvl 1
Those are all pet abilties I might add that correspond to your summon.

Job Traits:
MP Max Up: lvl 20
Resist Slow: lvl 40
Auto Refresh: lvl 50

Summons:
All summons are gained via quests (the summons that have been seen in past FF
games) or via scrolls (elementals) and are all lvl 1.  So Im just going to
go down the list.

Carbuncle
Ifrit
Garuda
Leviathan
Ramuh
Titan
Shiva

The elemental summons are just based on magic elements, i.e. Water Element.

3.5) Equipment Assistance
Beastmasters, seeing as they solo alot, can wear heavy armor.  This allows them
to have a decent amount of defense so they can tank for their pets if they are
solo playing, and they can take some decent hits as a tank if they are in a
party.  There are some types of armor they can't wear, like some mage specific
or MNK/NIN/SAM (stuff like martial slacks that only those three can wear) that
a BST can't wear, and at higher levels the armor starts to be more Job specific
so they can't wear that kind.  But you won't be short of any defense.

Weapons-
Here I'll just list the weapons a BST can equip and how they rank.
(ranking system is 1=Great 2=Decent 3=Basic 4=Below Average)
Sword=4
Axe=1
Dagger=2
Scythe=2
Club=3

Looking at the Weapon stats of a BST, Axe is the best kind of weapon for a BST,
but in a party, you might want to use Scythe if you don't plan to tank incase
the party needs a higher damager dealer.  Generally is best to stick with Axe
though since Axe does decent damage, has decent delay, and allows you to equip
a shield.

3.6) Stat Calculator
This URL leads to a decent stat calculator that will give you stats based on
race, job, and sub job.  Just keep in mind that it doesnt take into consider-
ation any job traits that boost HP or MP.

3.8) Artifact Armor
Artifact Armor, commonly referred to as AF armor, is job specific armor with
really nice boosts to skills and stats for that job.  To see what AF armor
looks like, take this URL.
