Core abilities[edit]

Icon Summon Avian Companion.png
Summon Avian Companion: You have been trained to keep a hunting bird. Activate this ability to summon your companion. Your pet cannot be attacked, and cannot die. Damage it causes is attributed to you. While your Hunting Bird is by your side, it grants you a +2 to Spot and Listen checks. Choose one: Summon Falcon, Summon Grey Owl, Summon Raven, Summon Snow Owl, Summon White Falcon. Your bird will remain with you in public areas, but, unlike a Wolf Companion or Iron Defender, it is considered a summoned creature. You can have only one summoned creature at a time.
  • Your choice of bird only differs in cosmetic appearance, they are otherwise identical in function. Images of the five different birds visible [DDO Forums]
  • If you are a ranged attacker and don't have the Precise Shot feat, then an avian companion will block your arrows/bolts when it is in the line of fire.
  • Summoning an avian companion may disable some Hunting bird attacks for 4.5 seconds.
  • Summoning an avian companion may cause other summoned creature to despawn.
  • Casting summoning spells makes an avian companion despawn, but this still keeps the toggle on, and you can use Hunting Bird attacks.
  • Your death makes an avian companion despawn and toggle off this skill. You need to toggle on again to use Hunting Bird attacks.
