Well see, someone like me is going to go for as much pet based damage output as possible (or at least automated damage). So having dogs die in the middle of their cooldown would not be optimal for me. Sure, it's only a potential 36ish percent weapon damage a second, but it still helps.
I wonder though, at what point it would be better to switch out jungle fort for FL (after a while, even jungle fort won't reduce the damage of most enemies below the damage cap, if I've invested enough into AR/Armor. I mean, even with 70% damage reduction from armor and resists + 20% from jungle fort, I bet a lot of act3/4 enemies will still hit for over 1k damage which would be over the cap at that point) and possibly get tribal rites to reduce that cooldown a little more.
I may just start replacing all my CC with life regen, and drop jungle fort once I get my life regen higher than the damage cap on my dogs. And probably reduce my dex by half to about 20% dodge rate. Since resists, armor, and health will be more important than they were before, I should prioritize them all a little more. I now consider a socketed helm to be a must have, just to reach my 30k health goal faster
