    Default pets in t1+

    pets seem seriously broken / useless in t1+

    in normal situations i can almost substitute with my pet for a tank, in t1+ my pet seems more a liabilty than anything else.

    comments please.

    you shouldn't use pets in t1/2 because it steals aggro from the tank, then in 2 seconds when its dead, all that aggro comes right at its owner.

    if at all, keep it on stay and only let it loose if the backline gets aggro-ed to divert attention away from yourself

    you illustrate my point.

    in normal pve, i can keep aggro, in a dungeon, my pet is a liability.

    why does my tank pet go down faster than myself as a caster in T1?

    yeah, you should never use the tank pet in a group situation when you have a tank because it will taunt mobs, steal agro, die, and transfer the agro to you. that's why you have been given a pet that doesn't taunt.

    Yes almost Working as intended

    Most games necro pets can be so so tanks solo and with a good necro or the right gear or both can tank heroic/ group content to some extent.

    T1 is the start of the raid progresion gearing up, i havent ever played a game where a necro pet is regarded as a raid tank.

    Strange my ranger pig must be broken it cant tank t1's either ;)

    Pets aren't meant for tanking the content. Sorry to call you guys ret|arded, but you truly are ret|arded for thinking that. You should be getting a tank and using a DPS pet. Any other is just a hassle and shouldn't even worry about being summoned. This is almost like saying "why can't my pet tank the raid boss? he keeps getting one shot yet he is a tank pet" <-- see my point?

    yes, i know that my tank pet taunts and my mdps detaunts, but they die in one second in T1

    in normal pve, my tank pet can almost substitute for a true tanik, in T1, there is no way of keeping my pet alive for 2-3 seconds. as a necro.... it's stupid.

    as far as i can tell, pets have no toughness stat.

    and even without that, pet's in T1 are a liability.

    to use a worn out meme...ur doin it wrong

    My dps pet can go through T1/T2 content and never die. If your pet is a liability, look at who's controlling it.

    necro class is useles,s without it's pet, and pets are usless in T1+. in this game, unless someone gives me some hints, pet classes are .... second rate for end game

    You're doing it wrong...

    Tank pets are not supposed to be use in instances ever. Your pet doesn't have toughness so that's why it goes down faster then in regular.
