Usage

  • This is quite Straightforward. It depends on a pet wall. It has 0 interrupts or aoe dmg. But pets are great tanks and soak up a lot of dmg.
  • Heroes that are not rangers (dervish and paragon) sometimes refuse to resurrect their pets. If that happens you need to micro them.
  • No heroes have caster armor. It means foes will prioritize attacking pets most of the time.
  • If you go to hard areas like Slaver's Exile or WoC in HM then you could drop an Heal as One Ranger for a 3rd Dwayna healer if you find survivability to be a problem.


Counters

  • Massive blind on pets
  • Mobs with Energy surge (a Mesmer boss with this skill can wipe balled up pets)
  • To much AOE dmg pets don't scatter
