I've been lurking for a while here and have been playing lock since BWL first came out. Admittedly, I've taken many breaks and my longest was probably before WoD launched, missing almost all of MoP (only did the first week of LFR and it was on a rogue).
Anyway, I've been having an issue as of late, and I don't remember having them in the past - that is, managing my pet's attack up time during trash and bosses like Imperator where he goes into intermission phases. I usually keep him on passive, but with trash I always have to send him back in on another mob, as once the mob he was first attacking dies, he comes back to me.
Forgive me if I'm wrong, but there is no aggressive button anymore, right? And I'd rather not use "assist me" because I switch targets too much, whether it be to dot or what have you. I tell my pet to attack so often (via alt+s), that now I subconsciously hit it even when there is only one mob!
IIRC while raiding back in the day, I used to just use one button for aggressive, and another for passive and just kept an eye on him (though in vanilla I believe I was running MD/Ruin, with a sacc'd pet).
Anyway, I'd appreciate any feedback you guys may have, even if there is nothing I can change aside from simply "get better."
Hey there! I'm a new in these forums and already needing a little help for my pet problem. I play a lvl 90 BM hunter and use chimera, spirit bear, devilsaur and shale spider as my main pets and all are chosen as ferocity pets. My problem is that they all taunt! I do know that devilsaur has growl and that can be turned off when doing dungeons but what about other pets? They don't have any active taunt ability and there is no in ferocity tree? Or have I missed something? All my pets are passive and launched to attack via macro that cast petattack and rabid. I'm only using devilsaur now (without growl...) but wanted to use others too, ecpesially that spidey to get that agi buff. Any ideas?
