    we got the robot sidekick as power, why not something that follows around thats not technical or such?
    like a willowhisp or something that shoots stuff .

    Many older players have asked over the years, for a type of re-skin ability to the robot sidekick. Would be nice if, at least, that was implemented.

    i mean for non pet using powers. just something to keep you company and who helps alittlebit with damage, heal or tank.

    I know what you mean, but what the devs might say is, 'there's accessory items for cosmetics, and trinket pets for that purpose.'

    You can have a pet (trinket) to pull some aggro, or a sidekick, stone restore power or heal, others do damage, and some even debuff.

    To have a 'pet' (other than sorcery/earth) that would essentially tank for you, would be somewhat offsetting as to what your powers (and team work) is for. When sorcery uses the tank pet, they (used to, I imagine still do) take a little decrease in damage output (vs using fury).

    Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of having a full time pet to replace robot, that could tank for my rage or celestial dps, but it would upset balance to a noticeable degree.

    Yea except not a specific ability tethered only to a Specific power you’d have to play to access.
    More like RSK (the iconic ALL can use) except a dif skin.
    Hmmmmm reskin RSK to customize it to our power set……. I feel a little de ja vu as i type that…. Lol

    they added allies they do that but more options are never a bad thing

    You know what it would be even better? If we could customize our pets.

    Imagine a full pet build where the player looks like a ninja and all his pets look like him. The player's name: OneManRaid.

    This would be epic.

    Needs a updated paint job and possibly matching player's power sets.

    I hate pet. The game became a pet game. :) When you are going to kill a boss in the open world there is a pet wall in front of you. The game should give the option to use other items and/or powers. DPS is extremely pet dependent: iconic, trinket, artifact, etc.

    tbh, not a big fan of pets myself... I feel like I'm a necromancer in Diablo when I summon many many pets...

    like when ppl are ready for boss fight, they summon
    Mother Box, Henchemen, Robot Sidekick on, Grim or Quislet will join the fight, and NOW we have Allies...

    since they are OP-ish for DPS, I use 'em too but wish there are more different options...
    like instead of "A PET", auto-gun on shoulders, swirling auras that dps, stuff like that
