Witch Awakening Pets

Is it even useful/worth it to have their awakening pets out? It seems like they don't do much...I'm also only level 56 so I don't know if they will get more badass when I'm higher level?

In PvE they have their own aggro cap which means you can hit more monsters, and since witch aoes are huge that's a very big bonus. Same rule applies for poison orb and pink orb.

In PvP it's useful to keep the earth pet out against grabbers, it can mess up their targetting.

Errr... no.

Only lava/poison field increases the aggro cap.

Also Magic Lighthouse, which doesn't even swap you to staff mode anymore.

Just tested it myself, aggro is wonky, but they do.

Mido is absolutely correct that the wiz/witch pet does not increase agro cap the way tamer pet does. Our magic lighthouse and poison/lava fields do, however.

To the OP, cause I don't have time to meddle with people who don't know what they're talking about. Its completely worth having them out in both instances.

In pvp: They can literally body block for you because they can be targeted. Many a 100 percents were wasted because someone aimed at my pet instead of me.

They also act as an extra bit of damage, nothing crazy BUT there have been times where it was literally down to the wire in a fight and my pet got the last shot in before my opponent could get their last hit in on me on top of that, its another point of distraction, another thing an opponent has to have eyes on and potentially try to avoid which means another thing that might cause them to mess up.

In pve: Again, an extra bit of damage. Ability to take aggro, which I have found useful when dealing with higher level mobs (I'm level 60 but even at lvl 60, there are things that can kill you). As a witch if I'm ever taking too much aggro from mobs etc, I can just put up my block for sec, let my pet take the aggro, heal up and then reengage. Your pet can take aggro of mobs that are attacking you and it does allow you to go beyond the normal aggro limit, how well it does that is another topic. But using your pet, lava/poison and yourself and thats quite a bit of aggro that you can pull at once.
