Black bears are the most common type of bears. They can be [[Summon Bear|summoned]] by a [[Ranger]] and [[Shapeshifter]]s can [[Bear Shape|transform]] into one. The Ranger's bear levels up with the character and thus makes for a great tanking ally, with high health and damage output.

The more common type. Encountered in [[Lothering]] during the quest [[When Bears Attack]] and in the [[Brecilian Forest]]. A [[Mage]] Warden will also get the black bear companion for the remainder of the [[The Harrowing (quest)|Harrowing]] in the [[Magi Origin|Origin story]].

A bear corrupted by the [[Blight]], that has lost its sentience and became a [[ghoul]], much like [[Blight wolves]] and [[Corrupted spider]]s. They use the same skills as Great bears, but have much higher stats, with increased armor, health, attack and defence. One is encountered in the [[Dalish Elf Origin]], while the [[sloth demon]] in Mage Origin has stolen its form and appears and fights like one. Later on, [[The Warden]] can be ambushed by 3 Blight Wolves and Bereskarn in a [[Low Road]] encounter, while another, named Fade Rifter, can be fought during the [[Summoning Sciences]] quest.
