dire boar portrait

The dire boar is a strong ally, and as it gains levels it receives the ferocity ability, giving it a bonus to attack and damage rolls. The dire boar is a larger, more vicious version of their common cousins. Their thick hide and bone ridges allow them to wade into battle without much chance of being hurt.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The boar animal companion's strength increases rapidly, but only in the pre-epic levels. Specifically, strength increases by one for each level obtained up to level 20, then does not increase after that.
  • This animal companion's skills do not improve as level increases.
