So have been thinking about how the pets work and their damage. I really like pets, and use them in every build i make. But one thing I find strange is how they work.
Since patch 2.0.5 blizzard changed some runes to make the pets benefit from more elemental damage. But in base all pets do physical damage. which means that if I want to use pets I almost have to stack for physical dmg and skipp buffing my other skills.
I had an idea of using Rhen'ho Flyer that makes the frogs explode twice and seek out targets, at the same time with pets. So I made a build that utilized the pets and exploding frogs with fire dmg. Then I choose the pet runes with fire dmg and tried. Sure it was fun and went good for me. But compared to a wd that stacked physical dmg instead of fire, I did so much less dmg.
So the question I ask is why the pets when using a rune with new elemental dmg (like fire) not also have their base attack do that elemental dmg..
So for example make the burning dogs do fire dmg when they bite and their aura instead of their bite do physical dmg and their aura fire.. Since this just makes it so hard to gear properly to make a build as good as just using physical and pets...
If there's anything I have understood wrong with topic or if you guys feel the same way I do don't hesitate to comment and maybe we can make blizzard change the way they work for the better
