The boar I named Jayne….
His Charge was OP, but he still knows Gore
Bliz nerfed him to hell, and fans gave them what for
Their love for boars now is hard to explain
Once hero of soloist, the boar I named Jayne
Yes, I named my boar Jayne Cobb, just so I could put a song in the post about the review. I finished boars a few days ago, and the review is finally up. The random nature of gore put it both above and below Crabs in terms of threat generation, but the ability to teach them both Charge and Dash ensured they were slightly above. After 10 levels, the first fight I tried with my testing spec was horrid. I went back over the log and Gore did not double or crit once. A few fights later I was totally impressed when he held agro through 3-4 crits in a row. This is a gambler’s pet. If you routinely roll 20s, you may enjoy it even more.
So, I’ve now tamed a bear. Let’s hope the patch doesn’t go live tuesday. Oh. You thought I was doing Nether Rays next… Hmm… Wonder what happened to that.
I have updated the Pet Review to include both bats and spiders. Bats made the #3 spot just inching out owls because of their increased wingspan for increased annoyance. Spiders got #1! … on the ‘not recommended’ list. Sorry, but they were worse than my crab, who I already feel like I’m recommending just because I love him. I had thought that the lack of a focus dump could be made up for by the +7% increased base DPS. At least compared to my -5% DPS crab. Nope. In fact I did a little spreadsheet research.
