What are the worst pet abilities and/or pets?
I know that the moment probably has passed(the ship has sailed etc), since the patch came with some nice ability updates. But during the "battle with that pet" thread I have come to use at least two pets that should be looked into.
Porcupette. First it has 289 speed, and possible speed buff from Powerball. This makes Counterstrike quite useless. Though beast of fable and certain dread waste trainer do use it with their inflated power stats for big hits. Secondly, survival which need speed and power ball in the same slot, just is wrong. Thirdly all three of it's attacks are 100% hitters so even with medium 260 power the hits are very low, 210/280 respectively. This pet purely sucks.
Bat. Pretty low health, unless you get a health-breed, and no defence at all except a one-target 25% slow. Leech Life needs a web to be useful at all, which means you need a spider to switch with and that will cause you to take a hit just to get an improved heal. Secondly Leech Life heal does not scale with damage, it is fixed. I tried with Hawk Eye, and crit for over 200(wee
) but heal was still 172. This probably also means it does not even heal more with things like Howl. Though I have yet to try it in sunlight. It just would have been more useful, but still questionable, with a Consume type move that returns damage done. Thirdly Nocturnal Strike needs darkness, well ok that is something you can work with. But these things combined makes this pet sub-par in my mind.
I'm sure there are other pets that really need some looking into.
Edit: By the way nobody would be happier than me if someone else can make these pets work.
