Charm: Allows you to control your target. There are some monsters that are un-charmable. These include beastmen, monsters like Marids and Cockatrice; these are often called "big game." The success of charm is directly related to your charisma, the level of the monster, your level, and the type of the monster. Charm is a light based attack and therefor gains bonuses from items that improve light based attacks such as the Apollo's Staff. The duration of charm depends on several variables including your level in comparison to your targets level. The charm duration can be extended with the use of armor pieces like beastmaster artifact set.
Gauge: A job ability that allows a beastmaster to approximate the success that they will have when attempting to charm a monster. Gauge takes into account your current stats and beastmaster level as well as the level of the monster you are currently targeting. The gauge ability was used to confirm that your overall beastmaster level is what determines your charm success rate. This study was particularly useful in concerns with beastmaster as a sub job.
Reward: This ability allows the beastmaster to feed his/her pet special food that restores the pet's hp, adds a regenerative effect, or erases a negative status effect. There are eight types of pet food; Biscuits Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, Zeta; Roborant; and Poultice. The Biscuits all restore a pet's hit points and adds a regenerative effect. Pet Roborant acts as an erase and removes a negative status effect. Pet Poultice increase the healing hit points of a pet by 5% when used in conjunction with the stay command. The amount of hit points a biscuit restores is affected by the players mind as well as "reward" enhancing gear.
