Beastmaster Build Guide

The Beastmaster Build in Enshrouded uses multiple skills to tame and use Wild Animals and Vukah in combat. What makes the build special is using the bow for ranged combat and having the unique ability to have companion animals fight alongside you. The Beastmaster build will emphasize range combat with high Dexterity and Endurance. This will give you great damage, mobility, and stamina regeneration.

Before progressing with our Best Enshrouded Beastmaster Build, your character creation will not impact gameplay. There are no racial passives, ability scores, or attributes to consider. Thus, we advise you to select a character whose appearance resonates with you.

Animal Taming

Beastmaster Animal Taming

The main feature of the Beastmaster skill and build is when you are targeted by an attack, wild animals within 50 meters will attack the enemy. These features are helpful in the open-world farming chest, completing Elixir Wells, and generating exploration. Additionally, the Vukah creatures, a bear-looking enemy will also be tamed and fight alongside you. These two extra companions make combat easier, unique, and fun.

Just unlock the skills recommended below, and the animals will follow and attack enemies. You can “guard” an NPC, though it doesn’t do anything particularly useful in combat.

Best Beastmaster Attributes & Combat Stats

The most important attribute of the Beast Master build is Dexterity. Dexterity increases your range damage, and this build will rely solely on range combat. The second most important stat is Endurance. This will allow for a larger stamina pool for dodging, sprinting, climbing, gliding, and movement. The Beast Master will not use Water Aura or Battle Heal like many other builds and must play at range using a bow to reduce incoming damage.

Additionally, your Flame Altar level will increase your attribute bonus. This is a priority for improving your Enshrouded Beastmaster build power level.

Beastmaster Gameplay & Tips

Aiming with a Bow in Enshrouded Game

The best tip to play the Beast Master build is to start combat in an open area surrounded by Wild Life or Vukah. While not always possible, the range of 50 meters is wide, and the extra help will enable you to finish fighters, avoiding damage. Below are some other gameplay tips when playing the best Beast Master build in Enshrouded game:

  • Weapons – Use a ranged short bow or something with a 0.6 draw speed. Moreover, look for any bow that doesn’t consume stamina when shot. You want to find special arrows for your bow by using the Hunter crafter. Shroud arrows are helpful damage over time, stun can control enemies, and exploding are end-game massive damage arrows. Also, equip a Wand and Shield for extra protection when escape isn’t possible.
  • Survival – You will need to use a combination of health regeneration food, bandages, and potions for healing. Unlike other builds, you will not have passive healing built in. Thus, relay on playing range with high mobility using Blink and Dodge to escape and punish enemies with bow attacks and special arrows.
  • Movement – The most crucial part of playing the Beast Master is keeping a medium 10 to 18-meter range from the enemy. Bows can be aimed down, giving you more headshot damage, but it is only advised when opening an attack or far from the enemy. Once the enemy draws near, zip away with Blink. If you are low on stamina, swap to Shield and Unarmed attack once you unlock the Begone skill. At this point, you can punch an enemy and stun them with mana.
