At 1st level, a feral guardian gains an animal companion, treating his warrior level as his effective beastmaster level for the purpose of this ability.
This ability replaces chosen weapon.
At 2nd level, when the animal companion can see and hear its master, it can use any combat feat possessed by the feral guardian. The animal companion doesn’t have to meet the feat’s prerequisites, but at the GM’s discretion may be precluded from using certain combat feats due to its physical form. For example, a feral guardian’s wolf companion with access to Exotic Weapon Proficiency (spiked chain) would not gain the ability to use spiked chains, since it doesn’t have any limbs capable of properly handling them.
This ability replaces combat offenses.
At 2nd level, a feral guardian loses access to any warrior talent that interacts with chosen weapon, but instead gains access to beastmaster tricks, treating his warrior level as his effective beastmaster level for the purpose of this ability.
