Profession Overview[]

Creature Handlers are masters of creatures. They have the ability to tame, train, and command pets, which can be a powerful aid. The power of the Creature Handler lies in the power of their pets, as the profession gives no actual weapons skills or defenses. Because of the overpowering strength of the profession at launch, the balancing of creatures made the profession seem nerfed; however, recent changes (publish 21) have improved things significantly by allowing creature handlers to learn pet abilities from their pets and then teach them to other pets.

This profession requires 106 skill points to master, 43 of which go towards prerequisites.

XP requirements to master, including prerequisites:

  • 5,900,000 Creature Handler XP (granted for taming pets, teaching new commands, and killing MOB's with help from pets)
  • 156,000 Scouting XP (granted for harvesting creature resources, camping, and successfully using Mask Scent/Conceal)
