Recommended Race(s): Therian; most skills are based on the Pet’s stats, so race is somewhat flexible for the Rover

As opposed to Flying Falcon, this class has access to Hound-related stuff. When Hound is summoned, the user can perform various Hound-related skills. Ground Patrol gives a chance to obtain food/items when exploring the labyrinth, Healing Up increases Hound-related recovery skills, Menacing Howl may inflict panic ailment to all enemies, Guard Command lets Hound absorbs damage for one ally, Foot Pierce deals damage and may inflict Leg Bind, Medicinal Lick restores HP to random party members, and Stun Shot may inflict Stun ailment. There is only one bow-related skill when Hound is unavailable: Arc Shot deals damage to one enemy with a 2.5x bonus if the enemy is in the back row.

Hunting Hound is capable of solo healing, so it may be redundant to have a Merciful Healer in the party. Necromancers don’t like sharing summon slots, but sharing hinders the Necromancer much more than it hinders the Hunting Hound. Hunter Shot, Menacing Howl, Foot Pierce, and Stun Shot inflict ailments or binds, so Harbinger's Wilting Miasma may be useful here. Graced Poisoner can be considered into the team due to its Chaos Smoke which benefits Menacing Howl, brings additional ailments to prolong the period in which an enemy is “locked down” (although head bind options are lacking), and also has access to a revive spell and ability to heal on demand. A Flying Falcon for Head Bind or Barrage Brawler for Head Bind and Leading Blow should be considered as well.

With the assumption of a rested character with around 30 skill points, maximize Menacing Howl and Status ATK Up as soon as possible. Panic ailment works really well to stop the enemies, and Menacing Howl inflicts it on all enemies. Don't forget to learn Hound Whistle to level 4, then maximize Animal Therapy and Target Arrow. Foot Pierce, Stun Shot, and other healing-related stuff can be learned as you go.

Contributed by Enfinete:

  • Pets
    • Hound: usually will attempt healing, targeting ally with lowest HP at the start of turn. Amount healed as per atwiki is HP * 15% + 5, modified by Healing Up. With Target Arrow, Hound will attempt attack with 8% leg bind chance.
    • Stats depend on user's level and the summon skill's level (which modifies the stat).
    • Skills with pet component will use pet stats.
    • Pets cannot suffer ailment/bind/buffs/debuffs as they don't have slot for that.
    • Passives and Pets: need to test. Supposedly Status ATK Up applies to pets (atwiki). Not sure if true for other passives. Should test.
  • Animal Therapy/Brushing: WIS-dependent. Doesn't stack across multiple Rovers.
  • Healing Up: this only works for healing skills involving Hound.
  • Medicinal Lick: the attempt targets self and other pets.

Build notes:

  • Brushing and/or Animal Therapy as low as possible to keep the pet alive and the party healthy.
  • I’ll admit my build may be too ambitious at the start, but Foot Pierce does incredible damage, especially at level 9, so try to make use of that once your get the healing situation addressed.

Hound Damage, Binder, Healer build:
Start [Hound Whistle (9) > Hunter Shot (3) > Aid Command (3) > Guard Command (5) > Foot Pierce (5) > Medicinal Lick (4)]. Hound Whistle(4) may be an option to free up points.

Optional Brushing (1), Animal Therapy (5 or 10), Target Arrow (1 or 5), Healing Up (1, 5 or 10), Status ATK Up (1) and/or TP Up (1)

Then [Foot Pierce (9), Aid Command (3-10), Medicinal Lick (4-10)]
