    Default Dying pets

    So I'm in a modest little guild, and we've just started the 20-man. On the first boss, Gelidra, the other ranged rogues and I all had trouble with our pets dying (I'm using PopeorGod's 40mm/36rng, and I took hasten call and close quarters). It was raptor slaughter time, even though I have a pet recall hot-keyed and I tried calling it back when switching from the boss to the birds.

    These pets were dying even before Hasten Call got off cd. Any advice appreciated. Does not having a full Ranger build cause this? Is there something I can do to prevent it?

    The birds attack the closest target including pets. Order your pet to attack the vortex and it should survive if tanks are positioned correctly.

    Ok, interesting. Should I take "petattack" out of my macros so it doesn't switch to the bird when I have it targeted?

    For this fight yes you should take it out of the macros and manually manage your pet if you want to use the MM/Ranger spec optimally.

    ok, many thanks--tried going straight 61mm, but at my current sort of intermediate gear set it knocked my dps way down.
