Dominance is a specialization which revolves around the taming and/or befriending of beasts. Those who specialize in this category are typically referred to as "Beast-Tamers". These creatures are capable of dealing damage equal to their own Tier with their natural weapons. D-Tier:
Can own 1 D-Tier beast. Beasts can register C-Tier and below techniques.C-Tier:

Can own 1 A-Tier beast and 1 C-Tier Beast. Beasts can register A-Tier and below techniques. At this rank, your primary beast (that is, the A-Tiered one), reduces word-counts on travel topics by 25%. and can trained into a Legend Beast (see below for details).Ω-Tier:
Can own 1 A-Tier beast and 1 B-Tier Beast. Beasts can register A-Tier and below techniques. At this rank your primary beast (that is, the A-Tiered one), reduces word-counts on travel topics by 50%. Ω-Tier abilities can only be used by "Legend Beasts".
Unlike people who specialize in other areas and use their own abilities, Beast-Tamers are practically defenseless on their own. All of their abilities and attacks come from and are produced by their beasts. There are several things to note about Beast Abilities:
- These abilities take up stamina points from the owner, and beasts don't have stamina limits of their own.
- Ability slots are spread throughout all of your beasts. Just because you have multiple beasts, you don't have any more ability slots than the average person.
- The type of beast you have determines what kind of abilities they can use. Ex. A normal tiger cannot use wings to fly, or shoot its claws out as a ranged attack. This is further limited by its Classification Type (See more on Classification Type below)
- All beast types may utilize the speed passives and movement-type abilities.
Beasts perform certain combative roles that vary between each individual species. At lower tiers, beasts are limited to how many roles they can fill, but can gain access to more as they rank up. The chart below shows how many roles a beast can have at each tier. D-Tier:
A Beast at this tier may perform one role. C-Tier:
A Beast at this tier may perform two role. B-Tier:
A Beast at this tier may perform two roles. A-Tier:
A Beast at this tier may perform three roles.
Types of Roles:Brute Force:
These beasts are close-combat specialists and their abilities follow the strength guidelines. They can only use offensive abilities for close range attacks.Defender:
These beasts are effective at taking blows and acting as a shield for their tamer. These beasts can only use defensive abilities and supplementary abilities for Immobilization, following the strength guidelines.Assassin:
These beasts are effective at attacking from a medium range with a projectile and their abilities follow the stealth guidelines. They can only use offensive abilities for medium ranged attacks. Sniper:
These beasts are ranged specialists and their abilities follow the Dexterity guidelines. With increased ranged, they pay for it with their ability damage dealing a Tier lower, except in the case of D-Tier abilities which deals its tier in damage. They can only use offensive abilities for ranged attacks and supplementary abilities for Immobilization. Support:
These beasts are much more unique able to support their tamer with a variety of skills. They use supplementary abilities for Healing, Poison, Invisibility (up to C-Tier), Sensory-Based Techniques, and more, however they are unable to cause Immobilization. They follow the stealth guidelines.
Beast Size and Speed
The maximum sizes and speeds for beasts are as follows:D-Tier:
2 meters in scale. Movement speed 5 m/s.C-Tier:
5 meters in scale. Movement speed 7 m/s.B-Tier:
10 meters in scale. Movement speed 10 m/s.A-Tier:
15 meters in scale. Movement speed 12 m/s.
Beasts have multiple different modes of movement. Flight, swimming, walking, running, jumping, crawling, slithering and burrowing are all examples of movement. A person may also think that the bigger the beast the better, however you should also take into account that larger beasts make easier targets.
Unlike weapons and staffs, Beasts are living creatures. So, instead of purchasing higher-tiered beasts, a tamer can instead train them into higher tiers. The process for training beasts is the exact same as training abilities, including the word-counts. When training a beast to a higher tier, the focus should be similar to Specialization training and focus on the beast gaining power, whether that is through strength, utility, or awakening passives.D-Tier to C-Tier:

"Legend Beasts" are creatures that are typically thought of to be mythical. This can include anything along the line of dragons, phoenixes, and any otherworldly creatures. There are several things to note about these special beasts:
- These beasts can use a single element. Their abilities follow the Magic Guidelines.
- All Legend Beasts must be A-Tiered.
- Legend Beasts can be up to 30 meters in size.
- If you wish to have a Legend Beast, you may either sacrifice your primary A-tier beast or extensively train your current A-tier beast up to Legendary Beast. The training for a Legendary Beast will be based off the guidelines for Omega tier training.
- Legend beasts can only be obtained by individuals with Dominance as their Primary specialization.
- Once your Legend Beast has been obtained, you will be able to replace up to 5 abilities, B-tier and lower, that you lost due to replacing your starter beast.
