Tallstrider – Lost Torranche
Overall Rank: 19/23 – Not Recommended
Damage reduction: 51.03%
Skills: Bite, Dash
|Solo: (C+) Has dash. High health is nice, too bad he couldn’t hold agro.
Instance: (D) Brings no utility other than HP. You’re better off with DPS.
BG: (C+) Dash can keep your opponent in combat, but it’s like a huge “here’s a hunter” arrow when walking beside you.
Arena:(C-) May give you a slight advantage while your opponents are laughing at you.
There were only two modes my tallstrider was in while soloing: lost agro or dead. The second one may have been me just being lazy, but I used more pet food testing this pet than any other by at least 3 fold. It was like he wasn’t happy unless 3 or more mobs had agroed, and he was blocking my view of 2 of them so I didn’t know to use Mend Pet. Even with extra health (+5% gives a whopping 300), it wasn’t long until there were mobs running at a petless hunter.
The saving grace of this family is dash. Getting to mobs quick and chasing down runners in PvP gave me hope that this time he wouldn’t be the main course at an all you can eat strider buffet.
Game play aside, I like the family a lot. I could see myself with either of the 2 unique lowbie skins Mazzranache or Strider Clutchmother should some stable slots open up. The attack sound was borderline annoying. Some may hate it, others may love it. I found it to be the cry of an innocent soldier going off to war to die.
