As you master the art of hunting, you can capture Legendary Beasts, which are rare and formidable foes. Werewolf Hunters' Armory Since hand-to-hand combat with a Werewolf would be a losing battle, it is important to maintain a well stocked arsenal of the most advanced weapons currently available.

Each chimera had certain abilities that mimicked those of real supernatural creatures. History[ edit ] The earliest bestiary in the form in which it was later popularized was an anonymous 2nd-century Greek volume called the Physiologuswhich itself summarized ancient knowledge and wisdom about animals in the writings of classical authors such as Aristotle 's Historia Animalium and various works by HerodotusPliny the ElderSolinusAelian and other naturalists.

Beasts that you capture can be kept alive and put on display in your Menagerie until you're ready to sacrifice them at the Blood Altar. Berserkers can leap great heights.
