THEME

The Bear Caller is a summoning-focused Incanter with one goal: To make the most terrifying bear the world has ever seen. Thanks to multiple feats and the Incanter's high number of talents, this build starts off with a lot of abilities, most of which are dedicated to growing the Bear over time. A dip into the Life sphere allows you to heal your companion when it gets wounded in battle.

Consider hopping on its back to ride it into battle, especially once you make it even bigger.

BUILD RULES

20 point buy. If higher, raise Intelligence or Charisma. If lower, lower strength.

SUGGESTED GROWTH

More Conjuration talents. A bit more Life can make it easier to sustain your companion, while the Enhancement sphere can make it even more powerful.

And, naturally, as much of the Bear sphere as you can afford.
