That doesn't address my potent hate for the ability, which is that it's EXTREMELY positional-- but we can barely do anything to position our pet without a lot of time and effort. I am quite willing to accept that a jiggling chimaera spamming it would be a hilarious anti-stealth maneuver in PvP, but it still doesn't do beans for AoE in that case (unless five rogues were all standing right on top of each other as they crept up on you).Cialbi wrote:Wark, have you used a chimaera recently? When 4.0.1 came out, Froststorm Breath was horribly broken; high chance of your pet expending all that focus and just sitting there channeling a phantom ability. At some point, it was hotfixed; now, when you use Froststorm Breath, it will be cast unless your pet lacks the focus or is incapacitated/stunned/silenced/etc.
So we currently have one "AoE" ability that's pretty much worthless for AoE because it demands perfect positioning from our pet, an entity we have limited direct control over; and the other AoE ability is annoying but DOES actually do AoE, but only for DPS purposes-- from a Tenacity pet.
See, it's not even necessarily that I won't tolerate pet AoE capabilities, it's that the game should take out a restraining order against whoever is trying to design them.
.../rerail: so how's about those hydras? I hear they have three heads and everything! Too bad we can't tame them right now: imagine if you could get all three heads Biting in synchronization!
