    Default Ranger pet holding Aggro better??

    IN beta it seemed impossible for the starting beast to hold aggro on more than one mob. Now I'm seeing quite a few people as Rangers, and the pet seems to be charging and holding aggro commendably.

    Was something adjusted for launch? Or is that just from the outside looking in

    "..what i DO have..are a very particular set of skills..."

    Funny, my wife is saying she's having more threat issues from the boar. Mine's working fine as my Ranger/Marks/Sab, but her Bard/Ranger/Bladedancer is pulling aggro with a couple strums of her string. (Put in order of the most points per soul).

    Ranger...powers. Too easy...

    Really though, thats all I can think of as well. The Boar's level cap scales with the rank of the summon, make sure she has the highest one available.

    Remember to resummon the new pet once you train the next skill as well... My pet wasnt holding aggro once and I was confused since I keep my skills up, but then I realized he hadn't died since level 1 so he was still capped at 8

    Also it seems the bard's songs generate quite a bit of hate. My primary soul is ranger with bard as secondary. I can shoot away with my ranger abilities but chaining cadence will pull aggro very quickly from my pig. I don't have a problem as long as I am judicious with cadence.
