Diablo® III

Pig

Why doesn't anyone use the pig? I love the little sucker. Between him and the templar, I have no issues pretty much straight up DPSing with very little kiting.

My only issue is on reflect, his damage + mine seems to force me to spam gloom.

Why no bacon love?

What MP are you using him on? I only briefly used him the first day of patch but found it entirely unsuitable to tank upwards of MP5

He dies too quickly on higher MPLs.

MP5. I do have to resummon him a bit, but I am able to time my disappearing act so templar gets aggro and then I summon him to pick up anything not on the templar.

I have not tried higher than 5 as my DPS is just way too low to do higher MPs with any kind of effectiveness.

Obviously I just starting playing this toon again, but I really like my setup. Oink!

His life, resistances, and armor are derived from yours, so he is not suitable for a glass cannon build.

Yeah he's not bad, but you should have seen him when the test realms were first up. The boar could tank a ton of damage.

My eHP is over 350k (same as yours), I'm not a glass cannon.

I regularly use the boar when farming mp3-6. After mp6, I start using guardian turrets or mark of death. Boar proves pretty useful when Im doing ZK and Siegebreaker in mp5-6, it keeps siegebreaker busy and when it dies, I can just spawn another one by then. But I like the added resist the boar gives since I dont have a lot and the it keeps enemies still so I can place echoing traps under them and get the full effect out of each trap.

Delicious pigs are for eating not for pets.

the best part about the pig is you get bacon every time he dies !!

I use the pig when doing ubers because even if he doesnt live all that long, it's a long-duration 15% damage reduction. Also on ZK/seige he tanks seige like a champ for me=D

problem with "pets" and ubers is the small arena. The biggest place is of course ZK/SIEGE arena.

Pets aren't bad in it of themselves, but can certainly hinder you against ubers in the fact it can become near impossible to RES a downed player as your pet is "pecking" at an enemy or the boss hits your pet which can break your res timer. Bats are really bad for this.

I use boar/pig when I run tank mode. Works great but others know if we are doing ubers and I'm tanking and using any pet that my odds of RESing them are next to nill. Exception can be SIEGE/ZK if the downed player is on the other side of the map from zk/siege.
