Venomancer pet buff?

Tali

I was wondering if venomancer pets like the nix and herc would ever get a defence buff? They're pretty much useless now except for that initial stun.

I understand nix's bleed is broken, I'm not asking for an attack buff per se, but they definitely need more defence (I've had someone 1shot my herc and then proceed to ask if it was level 1)

Unfortanly this is something we always forget, we talk about it, but then something else comes up, and we always let this for the in to do pile.

But i promess as soon as ET is back from his X-mas holidays, to see with him, what can be done about this. Until then remember to bbug me up with it, so i dont forget :)

I feel like venomancer pets are always something that gets overlooked on private servers with higher level caps. Not that it applies to me, but I've only been on one server where they were remotely useful in PvP (and it wasn't official).

Pretty much. They were amazing in official servers, why couldn't they get a little survivability tweak?
As I said before, bleed is broken, it doesn't get the damage reduction on players, but even a 150 nix still has some nice damage output...just pure definition of glass cannon.

you could give them more defense if the pet skill books were available. i think the "rare" ones are for like 10 minutes. probably could put the option to buy them at the flower granny, if they're not already available that is


edit: Mrs. Zoologist..... yeah she has a few. i believe the skill you would be looking for would be the "protect" skill. but she sells them. to find out which skill in particular, go to "teach pet skill" then click the skill tree button. (been awhile since i did any of that, so the info may not be completely accurate)

Correct me if I'm wrong that some pet skills can only obtain from faction base, provided the guild leader contribute it, which I hope we (venos) can easily obtain just like sage/demon skills. So far I joined couple of guilds and none have it in the vault and guild leaders don't really bother to get for us. These are the skills which can only be obtainable in the vault.

Pet Protection (level 3 Vault) (+180% magic resistance)
Pet Reflection (level 5 Vault) (reflect 80% damage)
Pet Aggressiveness (level 5 Vault) (+35% attack)
Pet Fortitude (level 6 Vault) (+180% physical defense)
Pet Vitality (level 6 Vault) (+35% max health)

But I do agreed with Tali that our pets are damn weak and can be easily one-shotted pk.

I don't think it's a good idea:) in 1 vs 1 will be harder to kill a veno:)
