The reason why reflect is not giving you problems is simple: low dps.
Not just base dps, but also build. You can spec it to provoke pack + pvt, gruesome feast, hit 300k dps buffed and then hit reflect pack with bears, watch how 3000 life regen per second is doing absolutely nothing because you die in 1 second (about enough time to replenish 3000 life and lose your entire health pool to massive reflected crits).
Note that to survive reflect with rain of toads, you need moderate loh, defensive stats and just tough minions to keep elites from moving around too much so you can actually hit them with spell. The whole problem here is how to survive reflect when you use your best attack: zombie bears.
I agree though that replenish life + fierce loyalty is the way to make summons invicible at mp10, which is really tricky without that passive and life regen.
Hey there and thanks for the constructive comment
Even tho I agree with some of the stuff you said, saying that 130k DPS is low is not a true fact, even tho like you said getting more is way possible.
What people misunderstand in Diablo 3 is that not everything is DMG.
Damage is measured by how much sustained DPS you can make in certain period of time, not by the number shown under your character profile.
I can probably make more damage with 130k DPS then you with 300k, simply because I can stand and rain on anything that moves or stand still since I can take as many hits as I want, just because I m constantly full, same as my pets. Also keep in mind that I can stuck elites anywhere I want (stairs, doors, hallways etc) which give me a huge advantage and I can simply stand behind the wall and use rain of toads. As you probably know, rain of toads is the only skill that can bypass obstacles, which makes elites with walls and mortar completely useless.
All in all, try the build out, you will love it. I'd rather have 130 - 180k DPS and do stuff completely relaxed then beg Gods not to see any reflect damage
