Exploiting how Weak Pets are in Arena!

Hunter
Pretty annoying how any decent team above 2200 will just pull and root your pet behind LOS and kill it almost instantly when against any BM hunter team. It's a very poor design and any arena game against a BM hunter shouldn't be about killing his pet and stopping pet Resurrection.

Currently our pets have sub 300k HP and they also take a lot more damage than they should be taking if they do in fact get 100% of our resilience. Also not that we should have to use deterrence to get a pet rez off pretty much every kick in the game can be used against us while in deter so it's almost impossible to get our pet back up.

Another valid point is why is a Warlocks gateway a shorter cast than our pet rez is?

Please buff pet survival some way or buff our pet rez even further.
It's not hard to get a pet res off. Gateway has nothing to do with pet res. Pet killing has been around for the longest time, ntm no offense but that's how the 2200 bracket players play.

...ntm you get 5 instant pet resses via stable. If your pets are dying 5 times, I don't know what to tell you or your healer who is obviously afk.

THought they said they were "fixing" the pet abandon thing
Yea they did fix the abandon thing that was the only thing that made it alright in 5.1 and 5.2
Since they fixed the pet abandoning, i wish they'd buff pet survivablity a bit.
Not asking for them to be invincible juggernauts, but, at least let them have the same health as us. hell, extend it to dk's and warlocks etc too, but it's really dumb that my pet is essentially a player in greens in terms of health.
if your pet is getting stomped by players, put it on passive instead of sending it LoS and to its death....? Just a thought.

Glyph the undying rage for bestial wrath (Pet is immune to death for the duration) if anything.

The other day in 2s my pet was being 3-4 shotted by a frost mage. They are pathetically weak. Yes I just cast rez pet again and over and over and over every damn time they kill it...but as BM and our pets being vital to our dps...they are paper dolls.
you sir are a fool.
even as marks in 3s even at 1900-2k i have to rez my crane 2-3 times a game. i swear the first thing targeted is pet..... its so weak that ive seen healers solo it lol.
Probably going to have to use cunning spec for "cornered" and the damn glyph of Endless Wrath.
I miss the days when our pets were not burst down in the opener by a warlock or mage who don't even have to blow a CD to do so. My pet shouldn't have to pillar hump in an arena in order to survive, he should be on target being able to dish out damage as intended and my healer shouldn't have to be healing the pet more than his teammates either. Bad design.
ill be 100% behind a pet survivability buff once BM is toned down - the only way to beat them for some comps is to kill pet.
I make my healer pop pain suppression on my pet :)

BM has been toned down every patch so far this expansion. Right now, we have no burst outside of a CD best used defensively, and said cooldown has "wind up" time in that burst (the burst comes in from the machine gun Arcane Shot+Cobra Strike procs more so than the 1 Kill Command every 6 seconds).

BM specific CC has been gutted, every single piece of CC a BM hunter can bring that is spec specific is "weak" when you compare the duration/effect/CD to other similar abilities. Non-BM specific pet CC all around is this way with the exception of Snatch.

BM then lost a spec specific CC because it was placed on Tier 30 to rot, even GC said he doesn't expect many to take Intimidation now.

On top of that, pet uptime took a nose dive when they removed the CC immunity from the pet way back in 5.1.

Seriously, if you still have issues with BM, L2P.

Deal with it.

Or play at a lower rating more to your liking.
I was killed by a rogue yesterday in 50/50 tyranical and s13 mal...killed in 4 seconds flat...he did 467,000 damage to me inside of a stun opener.

My pet has half the health of what that rogue did in 4 seconds....simple math dictates he could kill any pet in 2 seconds.

Pets need a survivability buff bottom line....the easiest strat to kill a BM hunter should not be kill his pet.

You are too stupid to insult.
You know what I wanna see happen, Put this thing in the game a buff that will make people not wanna kill our pets like "If you kill a hunters pets, we will get an enrage buff for 1min by 100%" then if someone kills it you are just stupid, and now you all gonna say "hunters dont need that, lol, what a noob hunter, learn to play" all I can say is !@#$ just cause you play an op class and dont play hunter makes you dont know a %^-*, I know it is kinda hard, and stampede is nerfed as !@#$! make this happen blizzard! buff our main pet!
...ntm you get 5 instant pet resses via stable. If your pets are dying 5 times, I don't know what to tell you or your healer who is obviously afk.

Evidence of someone who doesn't know how hunters work.

Trust me, if that actually worked, I would join you in laughing at any hunter complaining about pet death (assuming it isn't overtly excessive anyways).

Edit:.....ggrrrrr
stupid necro....
