Nether Ray Review
Nether Ray – Coilfang Ray (64)
Overall Rank: 14/23 – Not Recommended
There is only one skin for Nether Rays that does not have caster stats and all of them are found in Underbog instances, so if you want one of these you have your work cut out for you. Make sure your group knows what you’re doing before you go to tame one, and is ok with it.
So what do you get for your effort? The highest HP pet in the game, some extra DPS, and Dash. You’re currently still missing a focus dump but those 3 things go a long way. Normally, I don’t hit mend pet until my pet gets below 2000-2500 HP, and starting a mere 600 HP higher seemed to make this much less frequently, and also meant 1-2 more hits if I wasn’t paying attention to adds.
Agro was still an issue. I was consistently meleeing mobs at 50% health. I got pretty good at kiting, but that’s not what I’m looking for in a soloist pet. For instances, this pet could make a decent OT, but agro generation isn’t there.
There’s no flappiness to annoy in PvP and he actually seemed a bit small compared to some of the other 70 pets. Dash can help a bit again, but DPS doesn’t match up.
Fans of Ravagers may enjoy their looks, but I didn’t care for them very much. You’re also limited in your selection to one skin unless you don’t mind caster stats. I would have liked one of those red ones in SMV.
