There's no way in hell that 77 damage on one pet + 43 damage on another pet during the course of ONE round = 240 damage on that round. I don't know if we're on the same page, but where I come from, you don't use a multiplier just cuz there's 2 pets receiving damage.
77 is from the Pheromones hits both pets total = 154
43 is from the lightning hits both pets = 86
154 + 86 = 240
Ok, gotcha now. I did not factor in the Lightning when I read the Pheromones line of damage up there.
I also mistook you and thought that it was 77 damage to one pet (non Aquatic/Flier) and 43 to the other (Aquatic/Flier, since they take reduced Pheromone tick damage).

While its sad to see an interesting ability nuked, it just had far too much of an impact on the pvp game. -EVERYONE- was using it as it was that good.
Yep, well put. Now, had Blizzard just taken my advice and lowered the Pheromones damage to ~100 per tick (give or take a few pts. in damage for randomness), everything woulda been fine. There'd be no reason to swear off Pheromones forever, and people still might be encouraged to go ahead and try out some of his other abilities.
