The pets in this game are poorly executed. That is why I dislike them. For something that is basically fire and forget, they do too much damage/healing. If players had control over their actions and had to take an active role in managing when they used abilities, I wouldn't hate them so much. My Sorcery toon predates Home Turf. I enjoyed the dps aspect quite a bit back then with its field/aoe dots, buff procs and reliance on PIs and weapon usage. I even enjoyed WM with that toon. When uber-Fury appeared, I shelved the toon for anything other than healing. Can't stand the cruise control pets at all. I would prefer that Red Soul Aura procced when an enemy with Bad Karma was KOed.
