Beasts are an essential part of every hunt. Many monsters are extremely fast and hard to hunt, this is where beasts come in. They carry the hunting supplies (food, weapons, etc) for the warriors, and use their extreme speed and senses to locate and hunt down the monsters of Nicah.
Just like warriors, beasts can be summoned (=minted) for a set USD value and will be of a certain strength depending on the luck of the summoner. Higher strength beasts are stronger and are able to support more warriors for each hunt.
The usual summoning fee is 20 USD (to be paid in $BLOODSTONE) per beast. The summoning fee may be adjusted based on the Omni-Balanced Oracle™.
You can also choose to summon multiple beasts in one go, by making your choice in the dropdown menu when you hover over the summon button. You get a discount on the total amount if you summon multiple beast:
After about 30 seconds after summoning beasts, you need to click on the "Reveal Beasts" button (once the button becomes orange color) to see your new beasts appear in your inventory.
Each legion can have a maximum of 10 beasts, which will determine the amount of warriors it can support. As the combined strength of your warriors determines the hunts available to your legion and the success rate your legion will have for each hunt, it’s important to build legions with the strongest beasts that can support a lot of warriors and hunt the deadliest monsters of Nicah.
Beasts can be executed, which will return 20% of current summon fee back to the player in $BLOODSTONE. To execute a beast, usually when you are not satisfied with it's capacity, you just need to click the "execute" button (in the form of an X).
On the Beasts page, you can also use the filters, the "select all" button and the "mass execute" button to execute multiple beasts at the same time, based on your filters. Mass executing might result in a slightly different gas fee compared to executing beasts one by one.
There is no limit on the amount of beasts that can be summoned.
Here are the probabilities of summoning each beast type:
