    Is it just me or do henchmen die instantly most of the time, well especially during boss fights it seems like?

    I don't think they are a must in every encounter but when playing solo missions I think they can be useful.

    Eh, it's some free damage. They're certainly more important for support roles or if you're soloing weekly bounties, stuff like that.

    Swap 'em in, swap 'em out.

    True, I guess you’re probably better off with a pet trinket anyway for boss type fights

    Also depends on ur build
    The pet users/source shard users get alot of benefit
    I dont lol, but they do

    As a tank, I wish they would die instantly, especially during boss fights. Gotta love trying to dodge crap when I'm surrounded on all sides and in the air by backup/sidekicks, pets, RSK on top of any ads.

    Low tier combat pets hit harder than henchmen and sidekicks. At least sidekicks have support abilities.

    If you're an Electric Healer and use Galvanize, Henchmen are actually really good.
