I have noticed that I tend to go for H/H or H/anything breeds more and more in PvP lately. The H-Breeds where pets I usually never looked twice at before. But I find myself often switching to breeds with higher health where I previously mostly focused on power and/or speed. I am not saying H/H will dominate I'm just finding them much more useful than I did before.
I think there are two main reasons for this.
1. Plenty of AoE around nowadays and the extra health for one or two pets in the back can really make a difference when it's time to get them into battle. Often you won't notice "much" damage output difference but your pet will still last a long time even though you have already been hurt by the AoE.
2. Quite a lot of current favourites are glass cannons. They will dish out a lot of damage in a short time but in return quite a few of them have quite low health themselves. Having higher health will keep you in battle that one or two turns longer to make a difference compared to your average 1400 health pets.
Anyone else that have experienced something similar or am I just crazy(not entirely unlikely)?
