Because it's not a damage pet and ultimately, this artifact was intended to be for Robot Sidekick like Solar Amplifier with Heat Vision and the reason why Fury and Crystal were involved were to make sure RSK didn't trump them. I'll be honest, I'm having a blast right now. I have mine above 160. (Like 163, I think?) It definitely increased my damage loadout I had before with Suppressor Turret. Starting to get a feel for rotations and what not. I do wish I had one more slot, as I will hotswap Gauss with Taser right before bosses, I've also found myself lazy and just using straight Taser and the only AOE is from RSK. Which I take a big hit on damage in hallways, but I'm still playing around. I'm also getting the timing of lunge > pet trinket > jump out. (Which I wouldn't want to do in elite alerts/raids.) Did anyone do the damage calculations on the melee pet spawn AOE? I've seen a very wide range. Like sometimes it hits like a truck and sometimes it's a feather. I'm not sure if it is a weird splitting issue or where your pet is at that time. I think the only thing I've experienced to be by far the most annoying, is trying to re-summon RSK when it dies. Which, in clamped content, happens way too often. There is some weird health scaling issue in the clamp for it.
