Hunter Pets Tenacity/Tank
Return to board index
Gameplay (Hunter Pet Tanking)
Problem (Hunter pets suck at holding aggro unlike warlock pets now.)
How to fix (Give pets more AOE. Some pets would have wide range abilities naturally. One ability pure pet is unrealistic and tottal crap at least two per family some 3 and beastmaster exotic pets 4 to 5. Evan if some abilities overlap because guess what all pets or most have claws a teeth. A good talent to increase threat in the tenacity (Tank Spec) would also help.
I have no problem keeping agro on my pet since growl became a propper taunt ( i dont even use a tank spec pet anymore) .
thunderstomp is an AOE tanking talent .
glyphed misdirect also keeps agro on your pet
send your pet in first before you attack also helps with agro .
All in all there is no priblem with our pets as tanks if you use the mechanisms already in the game
If you have Growl on, it should be almost impossible to take aggro off your pet vs one enemy.
If you're gathering mobs for a big pull, facepull them (either by yourself or using your pet) and then Misdirect + AoE.
Warlocks don't have Misdirect, so their pets need more AoE threat abilities. We have other tools to accomplish the same goals.
I find opening with Blink Strike also helps to give my pet a lot of aggro early on, the my pet will growl, keeping it, and a misdirect to hold it there further. Thunderstomp is also useful as an AOE as mentioned above, and when soling at least, or in scenarios with no dedicated tank, my pet has no problems holding aggro.
My pets have no issue holding aggro- you should be misdirecting before every pull if you are having issues. Also, double check that all of your pet taunting abilities are active.
Macro misdirection into all your abilities and run the glyph. Should have no threat issues.
On another note, I do think Thunderstomp's damage output is absolutely pathetic.
found aoe groups never a problem, while i pull aggro sometimes.
its nothing that a quick feign > misdirect > multi shot , cant solve
actually personally i found it more pleasent too use a ferocity pet too use as a tank then a tentacity when i gained a few levels in pandaria. the amount i was able too pull was slightly less (5-7 instead 7-10)
but they were dieing quicker. which seemed too speed things up a lot more.
Another option would be to get
into your pulls on signle target pulls.
