    Default Raptor pet or Great Razorbeast?

    Keep hearing that Greater Razorbeast is a better tank and hold aggro better than Raptor, is this true?

    If this is true then why would anyone spend the point to get Raptor?

    You should keep the razorbeast if you want him to tank while you DPS.

    It wasn't the part about knowing which one was tank that's a problem. The fact you would dismiss ever even wasting a point on the "higher dps, but can't tank" pet was what made it seem like a troll. You'll be doing instances leveling up, and I can say from experience that if you use a pig the tank will hate you. Use a wolf or raptor(raptor is better) in an instance, as it's annoying with he pig trying to steal threat.

    Yes, the (greater) razorbeast can indeed hold agro amazingly well. It's a pity they can't survive (dungeons) nearly as well as they can hold agro.

    that is about the only thing i miss from WoW.... the pet tanking in groups. took some work but was so damn fun!
    it was even more beneficial at times to use pets cause of how they were immune to aoe and stuff. fun times!
    they could even tank raids! took a ton of teamwork though.
    but really the biggest thing i miss from that game was the fact that the world was a hunter's petshop! hint hint rift...

    You might want to ask the forum mods if you can change your forum name. Just a suggestion.

    Actually, to piggy back off this since I'm genuinely curious, what's the point of the Dire Wolf? It seems anyone who's spent enough points to get the Dire Wolf generally spends the points to get the Raptor and uses that instead when DPS is needed.

    I like the Dire Wolf and everything for aesthetic reasons, but I can never find a situation where it's more beneficial to use it over the Raptor or Razorbeast.

    Unless Dire Wolf is really just the DPS alternative for people who want to put 22-30 points into the soul rather than 31 to get the Raptor.

    i dont know why people are slacking off a newcommer for asking a valid question. If you havnt tried the raptor and dont really notice pet dps then youd wonder. When i got raptor for the first time i hated that pet coz i had no idea what it was for.
