			      STAR WARS GALAXIES
		A Guide To the new Beast Master Expertise System
				By KXRNIDGE



In mid-May 2007, SOE released the newest update (publish/chapter) 
to Star Wars Galaxies, Chapter 6. With Chapter 6 came the Beast Master 
((BM)) expertise tree. It brings back much of the old Bio-Engineer and 
Creature Handling system many Pre-Cu players have been begging for. 
This guide is a guide to help you understand the BM system and to get you 
on the fast track to crafting and incubating your very own combat pets 
and mounts!




VERSIONS:
_____________________________________________________________________________

1.5 - Added Pet Leveling Guide (10/2/07)

1.0 - Basic Guide was Created





1) INTRODUCTION/EXPERTISE TREE EXPLANATION
___________________________________________________________________________


The BM system isn't a profession; rather, it's an extra expertise tree 
available to every class and profession. You have 45 expertise points to 
spend in this tree. Let's explore each skill in the Beast Master 
expertise tree.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

INCUBATION: This ability allows you to use an Incubator to craft new beasts. 
You will also receive the "Extract DNA" and "Revive Beast" commands when 
you learn this skill.  

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

BEAST EMPATHY: You can learn this skill to improve your ability to keep 
your beasts happy. Your creature's happiness can range from furious to 
ecstatic and has a direct impact on its loyalty and how quickly it 
gains levels. You'll need this skill if you have a mount or a combat pet.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

INCUBATION QUALITY: Can provide up to a 20% bonus to your enzyme qualities 
during incubation. Increasing the quality of enzymes can affect the points 
available for the beast's stats during incubation. You must spend three 
points in Beast Empathy to learn this ability. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

GENETIC ENGINEERING: Grants a bonus to Genetic Engineering. 
Learning this skill gives you a bonus toward the effect of hydrolase 
enzymes during the refining process of incubation. You have to spend 
three points in Incubation Quality to learn this ability.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

STUPID PET TRICKS: Beast(s) under your control will do tricks at your command.
Some pets enjoy performing tricks for their master so much that it can 
improve their happiness. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

DNA HARVESTING: Learning this ability increases your chance to obtain higher 
quality DNA from a creature in the wild. Every 10 points will give you a 5% 
bonus to the minimum quality of the DNA you are extracting.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

CREATE MOUNT: You can make a creature a mount when its still in its egg.
Beasts such as the Bantha, Bol, Bolotaur, Brackaset, Carrion Spat, Cu Pa , 
Dewback, Eopie, Falumpaset, Graul, Kaadu, Kashyyyk Bantha, Rancor, Tulrus, 
Varactyl, and more can become mounts. You have to spend a point in Stupid 
Pet Tricks to learn this ability.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

INCUBATION PROCESSING TIME: Learn this skill to reduce the time required to 
incubate and hatch a beast. If you spend three points in this expertise, 
combined with a high quality incubator, the time between incubation sessions 
can be decreased by as many as 12 hours. You must learn the ability Create 
Mount before you can spend points in this skill. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

ATTACK!: You can command a beast under your control to attack anything you 
are able to attack yourself. Choosing this skill automatically adds the 
Attack button to the Pet Toolbar. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

CREATURE KNOWLEDGE: Learn this ability to gather detailed knowledge 
about a creature. This skill allows you to study creatures in the wild 
for chance to discover special abilities that can then be taught to your 
beast. Beasts can only learn from creatures of a similar type; for example, 
a narglatch can't learn abilities from a rancor. You must have spent a 
point in the the Attack ability in order to learn the Creature Knowledge 
ability. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

ENHANCED SKILL AcQUISITION: This skill improves your chance to learn 
abilities that you may use to train your pet while you are studying 
another creature. You must spend a point in the Creature Knowledge skill 
before you can learn this ability.

2) CREATING YOUR CREATURE
_____________________________________________________________________________

Ok, you've spent your expertise points in the Beast Master tree...now what? 
You have to have an Incubator to bio-engineer your pet!  Once you contact a 
structures trader to craft an Incubator or buy one for yourself, you need 5 
things to start your pet.  Each time you craft a pet, you'll go through 
three Experimentation Sessions until you can formulate an egg.  Each 
experimentation session can last from 12-24 hours, depending on your skills 
in the BM tree and/or the quality and functionality of your Incubator.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A. GEOTHERMAL ENERGY - A new type of energy, Geothermal energy is needed to 
run the incubator. It can be obtained like any other type of energy, 
though a Geothermal energy generator, (or through a bazarr if youre lazy <.<).
For each Experimentation Session, 2500 units of Geothermal Energy are used.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. LYASE ENZYMES - Out of the three enzymes needed to craft a pet, the Lyase 
are probably the easiest to get. You need one Lyase Enzyme per Experimentation
Session, and they are obtained simply by foraging. That's right, foraging 
actually has apurpose now rather than to just find fishing bait!

A Lyase Enzyme will be colored, and will say "Random Attributes Affected: XX"
The XX represents the number of random attributes a single Lyase Enzyme will 
affect, and you want as many as possible. The minimum number of attributes 
you canaffect is one, and the maximum number is 11, or all of them.

Lyase Enzymes are easy to get, and they help out a combat pet immensely.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

C. ISOMERASE ENZYMES - The second easiest enzyme to get, Isomerase Enzymes are
common and play an important role in the development of your pet.  You will 
need two Isomerase Enzymes per Experimentation Session, or 6 for a full beast.
The quality of Isomerase Enzymes is measured in a percent, the lowest percent
 being 5% and the highest being 90%.

To obtain Isomerase Enzymes, you must loot them off of dead beasts. This is 
the important part so listen up: THE QUALITYOF THE ENZYME IS DIRECTLY BASED 
OFF OF THE COMBAT LEVEL (cl) OF THE BEAST YOU KILL. For example, if you kill 
a cl 5 worrt you will most likely loot a 5-6 % Isomerase Enzyme.  Now if you 
kill a cl 91 piket protector, you will most likely loot a 87-90 % enzyme. 
The percentages will usually be a little higher or lower than the beast you 
kill, and 90% Isomerase Enzymesare rare, so keep on killing to get the good 
enzymes.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

D. HYDROLASE ENZYMES - Undoubtedly the hardest enzymes to get your hands on, 
the Hydrolase Enzymes determine the points you can spend in the 6 types of 
skills your pet can get while in the Incubator. Hydrolase Enzymes' quality 
is the same as theIsomerases Enzymes, or in percents, with the same caps,
(5-90 %)

To obtain Hydrolase Enzymes, you must first purchase or craft an Enzyme 
Extractor. After you get that, go out and kill an animal. When its deceased, 
target its corpse and use the Enzyme Extractor. You will have sucessfully 
extracted a single Hydrolase Enzyme. Similar to the Isomerase Enzyme, 
the quality of a Hydrolase Enzyme is based on the cl of the creature you
extracted it from.

The six skills your pet can learn are as follows:

Survival and Bestial Resilience (green) represent a creature's defensive 
skills. 

Cunning and Intelligence (yellow) represent a creature's intellectual 
skills. 

Aggression and Hunter's Instinct (orange) represent a creature's aggressive 
skills. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

E. DNA - Without a creature's DNA you can't even start an Experimentation 
session! DNA is extracted from live or dead creatures using the DNA 
harvesting ability. The DNA is stored in DNA Storage Devices, and they say 
the quality of the DNA, ( from 5% quality to 90% quality) and the name of 
the species of the DNA. You only need one DNA storage device for 3 
Experimentation Sessions.  

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



3) PET COMBAT
________________________________________________________________________________

Now that you've crafted your pet, its time to take it out and level it up.
A pet levels up the same way your character does, by gaining experience 
points from killing other creatures or NPC's.  To level up your pet, have it 
attack an NPC that is close to or higher than the pets combat level. 
(Your pet will come out of its egg at cl 5).  It will gain experience points
for every creature it kills, and will level up like you would.  

When your creature is out, an action toolbar will appear over yours, with 
your pet's abilities.  To use these, just click on them like you would your 
own attacks.  

To boost your pets experience while fighting, give it a Dietary Supplement.  
There are different kinds of Dietary Supplements and you'll need to find the 
one that will affect your pet. These will boost the exp that your pet gains 
by 400-500 points per kill, and are extremely effective and useful while 
grinding your pet to cl90.

Pet combat is very similar to normal combat, and takes only a few minutes 
to get used to.



4) TAKING CARE OF YOUR PRECIOUS PET
_____________________________________________________________________________

While not enitrely essential, your pet's mood will determine if it gets an 
xp boost or decrease, and if it will listen to you. You may notice that your 
pet "approves of this activity" or "dislikes being on this planet". Every pet
has a favorite planet, activity, and food, as well as activities, planets, 
and foods it dislikes.  To find out its favorites, all you have to do is do 
all the activities you can, (killing NPC's, killing creatures, tricks etc), 
feed it all the food you can, and call it out on every planet. This way, 
you will quickly find out your pet's likes and dislikes.

A pet's mood can range from anywhere to furious to ecstatic...and belive me, 
you'll want to keep your pet's mood up at all times.  The madder your pet is,
the less xp it will gain during combat, and vice versa.  To lift the spirits 
of your pet, just do its favorite activity, feed it its favorite food, 
or call it on its favorite planet. You'll be glad you did.

A pet's loyalty level can go up and down the same way. Your pet's loyalty 
level will start at "Wild", but with time, patience, and some of your pet's 
favorite food, the loyalty level will increase, capping at "Trained". 
You'll want to try to get your pet's loyalty level as high as you can, 
because it will definitley help while grinding your pet to 90.

NOTE: Like a real pet, your pets in Star Wars Galaxies love attention 
and food, so be generous with both! ^_^



5) RARE CREATURES
_____________________________________________________________________________

You may be trying to extract DNA from an animal, and it might say 
"This Creature does not have DNA viable for Incubation".While that statement
may be true, it doesn't mean you can't get one of those rare creatures as a 
pet. To get a rare creature, such as a rancor, graul, or kimogila, you 
will have to use Pre-CU DNA Samples. What I mean by that is that the DNA for 
these creatures is no longer available, and you have to get the DNA samples 
from a player that has them from before the infamous Combat Upgrade. 



6) PET LEVELING GUIDE/OUTLINE (( ADDED 10/2/07 ))
______________________________________________________________________________

Though you probably have made your pet by now, only a handful of people have 
actually grinded their beast to its cap, cl90.  I'm adding this Pet Leveling
guide to help you get the best combat possible out of your pet!
 

- Always Always Always use Supplements if possible! These have a chance to 
give you a 500% bonus to EXP per kill! It will make grinding a lot easier. 

- Never attack a creature that Cons grey to you. You will negate all EXP 
being rewarded to your pet even if you do 1 hp of damage! 

- Do not be afraid to go grind off of creatures even up to 10 levels lower 
than your pet. If it is capable of getting EXP off that creature, it will 
get the same EXP off of that as it would a lvl 90 elite. 

- Use Macros if necessary. To activate any option on the pet toolbar, use 
/ui action petToolbarSlotX <-- Where X is 0-8 depending on position on 
the bar. 

- You may also do all the killing for your pet provided to only attack 
things that con GREEN and up! spend 1 point in the BM expertise to be 
able to call your pet and set it on PASSIVE. This will grant you the 
abilitiy to call your pet and also grant the REVIVE ability. Go out 
and hunt away and your pet will gain the same EXP as it would if it was 
doing the killing, whatever method works best for you! 

- Keep your pet Happy with food, tricks, etc for extra EXP. You must 
find what activities it likes best as every pet is different.

- If you want your pet to auto-attack using one, two, three, or all of the 
abilities you've trained it just right-click on the icon on the Pet Toolbar 
to set that ability as an Auto-Attack. 

- Set your Pet on DEFENSIVE MODE. Aggroing many NPCs allows your pet to 
pick them off 1 by 1 as they attack you. Watch your health though...
