    Well I doubt they were banned for using a pet to tank . . . so if they were it was for something else. I have a response from a GM stating that pet tanking is a perfectly legite way to tank a raid boss . . .

    So as much as I did not like their antics, don't see how they could be banned for that now . . . must have been one of the other exploits.

    @Even

    If pet tanking is a "perfectly legit way to tank a boss" then they wouldn't have changed how Regulos works. Not all GM's are on the same page and I'm willing to bet that a lot of them respond to tickets from outside of their department with generic responses.

    Weird... I've seen messages from Senior GMs AND Devs stating it is unintended for pets to tank raid bosses.

    Note the use of the word 'attempt' in the response.

    ie it's fine to try using pets to tank raid bosses, but if it's successful it's probably unintended
    Nope.

    I believe the reason they responded to the ticket the way they did is because now they are confident they have made it impossible to tank bosses with pets.

    It previously was an exploit, so Trion got around to fixing the mechanic that allowed for the exploit. Now you can try whatever you want.

    Where have they said they fixed it? Can't find it on the forums, and yes I have checked the dev tracker.

    If it isn't changed already, it will be soon. There's only a few ways in which it can be fixed; Regulos becomes immune to pets, pets no longer immune to damage from Regulos. For the pet classes' sake, probably the latter.

    It obviously never was the intention to let some tankpet slaughter the god of death. We'll see what the fix is when it arrives.

    The encounter was fixed the week after NQ killed it. Regulos used to be only cleave damage, which is why pets were able to tank it. Now, that's no longer the case. As I've stated previously, not all GM's are on the same page.

    It should be quite obvious to any person with an average or better IQ that pets aren't meant to tank raid bosses.

    Ya I think my question was to the GM was just to point out the error in their logic, I do not agree with what NQ did but I also think that it is Trions responsibility to make content that at least takes a bit of effort to cheat on . . .Tanking bosses with pets is not something that NQ really had to search for to find out.

    Its not like building up a platform on LK using saronite bombs for an example . . . so my point was to show Trion they should really get on the same page here. I really enjoy this game, but I am tired of the raid community having to deal with stuff like this.

    Its not just regulos that could be tanked with a pet, there are numerous bosses where a pet can do it, and gm's dont tend to know every rule of everything the devs consider exploiting.

    We contacted the gm's about this issue too, first reply was he wasnt sure, second reply he told us not to use it or make it public or we could risk being banned/suspended over these actions as they were not intended by the devs to be used like that.

    The issue with pet tanking was mainly trion's fault, and they had been told several times at different points in the year and didnt fix it, was only a matter of time until others found it out.
