Upon using this skill, the target animal will immediately become hostile during the skill activation time. If you have high level henchmen with you, they are likely to kill it before you can finish charming the animal.
This skill can be replaced with a new skill, via learning a new skill or gaining a mission's skill, without losing control of the pet. In explorable areas, the pet will no longer appear with you once you change zones.
Once you charm an animal, it will be forever bound to you even if you change professions. The only way to get rid of your pet is to talk to a Pet Tamer.
