this makes the 20 second shelf life of the fetish army not too shabby.
Fetish Army: they do 2x the damage x 5 (20% x 5 = 100% x 20 seconds = 2000 damage in 20 seconds) (120 recast time)
dogs: if they lived 20 seconds, it would be about 10% x 3 x 20 = 600% damage in the same time period. (60 second recast time)
you could then add the bonus of 120% damage when summoned, which means about 3000 damage in the 20 second time period vs 600% damage.
now if they are all going to die in under 20 seconds and you were not going to choose explosion or passive skills to keep them alive longer... why would you pick them?
im having this debate now because i want to use my pets but they are not my main focus.
