There seems to be a bug in the latest patch. Pets are suddenly very hard to kill. I chalked it up to resilience finally affecting pets, but over the course of playing lots, something just seemed off.
This one time I was in the mid road away from healers in AB to with my friend and we were fighting a hunter. I focused the pet, he focused the hunter. There's no way the hunter should have died before the pet considering the pet was attacking my sham friend who couldn't build up lightning shield charges, and I had no one dispelling my dots.
I talked to my hunter friends, and they said it might be a spirit pet, so I started paying attention, and it seems to be all pets, including water elementals, and lock pets. There are times where there could be no los from a healer, no mend pet.
I'm accounting for things like Bloodthirsty, and damage to health pet talent. Which should be healing for around the vicinity of 5% or a pet that uses cower to slow my damage. These jumps are around 50% however.
It seems to be % based whether I'm fighting a pet with 20k, or 35k. So, I dueled my warlock friend even with that damage to pet health talent. Sure enough the talent was working, getting like small ticks of health here and there, but once in awhile the pet would just dramatically get health for about 50% of its health for no reason. You can't find the heals in the combat log. Its almost as if the game, if the pet gets below a certain health readjusts its hp as if it is adjusting for stamina from gear.
I'm glad pets are sturdier, but when the pet becomes harder to kill than the master, something is inherently wrong with the game. This bug needs to be fixed.
there was definitely a hunter pet tanking Gamon in orgrimmar on an alt's server the other day. it would take all of its health in damage and drop to 1hp every couple of seconds, and then get enormous heals from (apparently) nowhere (nobody healing it) before dropping back to 1hp on the next attack.
i didn't bother to find out what the bug was because i didn't have time, but in any case there appear to be quite substantial pet bugs remaining in the game currently.
