The above sums up your comments on the matter more or less. I am not arguing those facts at all. I am saying for single target trash mobs I should not have to do "lots of other stuff" for the pet to live reliably. A warrior pet that has something like 180k hps naked, raid focus, raid self pet buffs, merc buffs, 10k pet related AA and a dedicated merc healer should not be 50/50 on a single trash mob unless the necro himself steps in for even further support. A SINGLE TRASH MOB. Other actions should be reserved for named or oh moments or some rare really difficult mob ie then having to use cascading doomshield every 18s or casting pet heals or casting phantasmal on refresh or casting aegis on refresh and slowing the mob or having a full set of TS attuneable gear would be required. But a single trash mob verse a supposedly raid focused warrior pet with a dedicated healer should not require its owner should to have to do anymore then dps. Otherwise like I said its pointless. I am better off root rotting or kiting or tanking myself with swarm pets or using swarm pets or boxing a tank or getting a tank or getting a mage pet or getting a beastlord pet. All of which require half the effort and result in faster killing or easier completion. To kill a single trash mob I should not have to use the necro pet version of fortitude, last stand, pain doesn't hurt and dicho. Because blanket nerfs to control mage pets have gutted our warrior pet.
