    Default So here I am juss derp'in on some player's pet in pvp....

    I thought to myself.... Hmmmm pet classes could use a survivability boost for their pets with all the buffs characters are getting to their damage.

    Make it so!

    I hate people like you, it's such a pain when my SUPERAWESOMESAUZE raptor dies because of antics like these!

    I agree pets need a boost though, it's a pretty significant nerf when someone kills mah pet when I'm on the BM/ranger. Ele it matters less because I can just sac it for a burn or use a ranged pet but the other two need some love.

    If a match is going well, sometimes I like to just stalk and kill someone's pet every time they resummon it.

    Little bastards, always nipping at my heels when I'm trying to capture a flag...

    Well, not for the past few months (Skyrim happened. Again)...

    ...but otherwise, yes. If I can afford to ignore the enemy players for a moment.

    Yes, please! Necro pet management is a pain in the ***, its like 17k health, puts itself in vulnerable positions (i don't think valor translates over to it either), and my only pet heal kind of blows. Exhume is on a way too long cooldown assuming its not down from using it with Mass Graves, and pet casts of 8s(+pushback) are too interruptable

    Pets should share stats with caster. Pretty straight forward and easy to balance.

    I think i suggested that once eons ago near launch. Regardless, good idea. I'm really just asking for a raw HP boost to the pets, or some extra mitigation, but honestly I'd rather see the HP boost. A major aspect of a player's class (the pet) is getting nullified in pvp a tad too quickly these days and could use a tweaking.

    Pets? Kill those damned Decoys. I do. It's my favorite thing to do when I'm on a losing team and I need a timely BT proc. Ah BT proc, the sweet sound of success.

    Also tab target those shambling horde zombie whatever things that Necros spawn. They're a Warfront version of Trollbait.

    I guess you're right.

    Been a while (about 10 PR) but I decided to play the build when I got tired of all the time being wasted by people typing in chat who weren't getting enough heals and I was surprised at how fast the pets were being killed. I can't get some powerful procs without a pet, and being gimped without them for 2 minutes is more than a little ridiculous and has me equivalent in power to like a level 50 at PR1, lol. If they'd just lower the instant pet summon cd from 2 minutes to like 30 seconds then the pet dying wouldn't be such a bad gimp in higher level PvP. I'd like other pet survivability improvements, sure, but just being able to summon it again would make me happy. Maybe they could sell a PvP consumable that would reduce the cd on instant pet summons, I'd probably buy it!
