As I understand it, increased attack speed speeds up the attack animation of Hydra, but not the frequency of attacks, i.e. the Hydra always attacks the same # of times/ second, but faster attack speeds mean that the animation of the attack is faster, and damage scales with paper DPS.
Crit chance/ crit damage do effect pets, but only by increasing paper DPS which their damage is in turn based off of.
This has never made sense to me, and I've always thought it would make more sense to have pets like Hydra and Sentry inherit the players attack speed, to give more value to attack speed over CC/CD.
