The Pets

So you’ve decided to tame a tenacity pet! But what pet to choose? To help you choose, Ive compiled information on each tenacity family, including a review of each family, a link to the different skins that family has, and where you can find them. Lets go alphabetically by family

 

bearBears
Swipe – Attack up to three nearby targets. 25 Focus, 5 sec CD

Bears are great all around pets. They are very capaple in world pve, and swipe is great for dealing with the herds that are so prevalent, or an unexpected add. If you are using your Bear in an instance, the aoe threat of swipe will help build more threat on multiple targets. For this purpose compare Bears with Crocs. In pvp Swipe isn’t going to be as beneficial as some of the other moves. Remember that Swipe now affects targets in the full 360 degree range.

boar1Boars
Gore – Gore your enemy, double damage after charge. 25 Focus, 10 sec CD

In its current state, Gore is a pure damage move, doing more damage initially. Its also single target, making the boar good at holding one target by buiding up a little extra threat early on. This would be ideal for off tanking/single target tanking in an instance with overgeared dps, but with all tenacity pets getting thunderstomp, you may want to evaluate whether this is needed. For pvp, if you are looking for a pure damage move in your tenacity pet, this one will do the trick.

crabCrabs
Pin – Pins the target in place, doing damage, for 4 seconds. No Focus, 40 sec CD

With a focus on mobility in their special move, a crab’s strongest suit is pvp, and in conjunction with longevity this becomes 28 seconds. With intimidation, the pet is providing a fairly frequent snare/stun. Furthermore Roar of Sacrifice is highly beneficial for the hunter’s survival. Pin will also find engagement-specific usefulness in instances where mobs are not easily controlled, and can lend a hand in positioning if your mobs are out of control.

crocCrocs
Bad Attitude – Deals damage to all attackers for 45 sec. No Focus, 2 min CD

With bad attitude, Crocs fall into the multi-tanking category. Crocs and bears are comparable in this category, and Crocs got an extra boost from thunderstomp. Thunderstomp can provide the initial aggro grab that causes the mob to attack the croc, and then Bad Attitude takes over. For pvp, this move wouldn’t benefit you much, since it is unlikely that several players would be attacking your croc, in which case your croc is a goner.

gorillaGorillas
Pummel – Pummel the target, interrupting spellcasting and preventing any spell in that school from being cast for 2 sec. 20 Focus, 30 sec CD

With the move of Thunderstomp to the talent tree, Gorillas are no longer the kings of tanking. They will still make great levelers, and the spell interrupt would also come in handy for pvp. For tanking, this move may prove invaluable for certain encounters, but it is very likely that the bosses may be immune to this move. Testers needed for this, contact me if interested.

rhinoRhinos (Exotic)
Stampede – Single target Knockback, plus a 25% extra damage from bleed effect. No Focus, 1 min CD

The bleed effect does not stack with mangle, so use of this as a raid debuff for the bleed portion will be situational (IE no feral druid but at least a few Warriors, Rogues, MM hunters). The knockback is still useful for pvp, although the effect has been reduced as it only affects one target now. For pvp and also tanking, remember that the knockback also interupts moves and spells, which could come in handy for specific encounters.

scorpidScorpids
Scorpid Poison – Nature dot, stacks 5 times. 25 Focus, 4 sec CD

Traditionally, the scorpid has been a big factor in arena drain-game setups. Aside from building up ‘fire and forget’ threat, the poison doesn’t have much application in pve, aside from encounter specific nature vunerabilities. I’m not engaged in pvp enough to know if this is still an issue. For tanking, this is a pure damage move, and so I would personally opt for one of the utility moves.

turtleTurtles
Shell Shield – 50% damage reduction for 12 sec. No Focus, 1 min CD

Turtles have always had a special place in my heart, and now I believe the will become much more popular. Shell Sheild is amazing for tanking, will save your pet in tough situations for leveling, and can deter would be pvp attackers. Personally I think this move is the best for Main Tanking or Offtanking instances and raids, especially to aid your pet survive that occasional but very nasty crit it will be facing.

warp-stalkerWarp Stalkers
Warp – Teleports to enemy, 50% change to dodge the next three attacks. No Focus, 15 sec CD

The free chance to dodge is nice, in pve and pvp, even if it’s not as strong as other moves of its kind, such as Shell Sheild. For mobility’s sake, frequent target switching becomes possible, which is definitely a boon. The extra two chances granted to this move will not always be utilized as the effect only lasts 4 seconds. This move needs to see a buff in my opinion.

wormWorms (Exotic)
Acid Spit – Your worm spits acid at an enemy, causing 58-82 Nature dmg and reducing its armor by 10% per stack for 30 sec. Can be applied 2 times. 20 Focus, 10 sec CD

This move has received an incredible buff, relative to player buffs that is. It decreases the armor by the same amount as the warrior, but can be applied much more easily and a little more quickly provided you have longevity. If the warrior is tanking, then the threat portion makes sunder armor the best choice, but against a dps warrior, its best if your worm applies the buff, saving the dps warrior rage, cooldowns, and unneeded threat. This is the only pet buff i know of that is better than a player buff, even though it only excels in the absence of a tanking warrior.
