I have to disagree. Yes, you CAN build him to be a strong tank on his own. But the crawdad won't deal a lot of damage with all this extra HP. And its damage can pretty easily be outhealed. A burst pet (FFF!) however can kill pretty much any enemy pet within 3-5 rounds. Getting it healed up again can buy you very valuable time.
Example: Start with FFF. Kill one enemy pet. Against smart enemies the FFF usually is near death and does not have the time to fully charge up again. So switch to Crawdad, use Mists and Wish, back to FFF -> even if you get smashed into the self repair at this point your FFF is near 100% after Wish + Mists ticked. Kill a second pet. Or just charge up (if you are not sure if you will survive long enough) switch back to your Crawdad (or first your third pet, if Wish is still on CD), and just repeat. Basically you are transfering HP from the Crawdad (that takes a couple of hits to cast Mist and Wish) to a pet of your choosing.
Ooh I know, and I've healed my FFF with my crawdad too, but I dont use my crawdad JUST for that, is what Im saying. It's just a total waste if you ONLY use him to heal others.. yes his damage is low, don't use him against a pet who can outheal his damage, use him against any pet that doesn't heal, but mostly just don't waste a pet slot for a pet if you dont intend to use him...
Renewing mist will cost you 1 more round to do (then if you throw him in just to Wish your FFF), for 2 ticks on your FFF (wooptidoo), and your crawdad will end up going down faster that way. You'll last longer and be able to use his Wish more often if you can make him last longer. Plus when your FFF does end up going down, well your Crawdad wont be as useless. He'll be able to full himself up in a few rounds, given he's not against a very high damage output pet, and more efficiently with Shell Shield than with Renewing Mist.
Renewing Mist is not a bad ability, but personnally I find Shell Shield quite better. No matter how you intend on using your Crawdad really.
