I have run my first toon fully investing in summons, this included augument, improved augument, sion of elysiun, 3 druid lives, magister grand summoner and harper.

My toon was mage enchanter, and did quite well all heroics amd EN. EH was doable also with dcs near 50-55. With itens, i belive it gets 65 easily. For my surprise, i only gave up 2 feats, epic spell focus enchantment, and sion of feywind, what could gave me dcs in 70, nedded for EE. But with 60 i was able to land 100% mass hold in normal, 80% in EH, and 15% some lv 30 elites. Spell pen wasnt a problem due 2 wiz past lives and i got all feats.

My initial planning was to use this boosts on chamed creatures, but it lasts 15 seconds maximum in EE due their epic buffs, so its not adviseable to try that.

For those who want to know my skelly pet was doing 330 dmg, doublestrike, sometimes criting 500 (700 on holded mobs) at lv 30. Succubus had 200-300 fireballs. Both with 2k hp.

The point is, some time ago, many said that u cant have pets out in EE. THIS IS NOT true anynmore, with feats, they are for more resistsnt than you. I tryed Driad and with 28 on atributes, evasion and self healing, she was able to solo like 10 abishai after i died in grim EE.

The biggest problem now is lack of shine dps if you are looking them for SOLE souce of it. I belive all pets tank well with feats, but arent able to do much in dps or hold agro for long. On the other way, 500 dmg per second on skelly its like a free Ruin spell everytime, and takes some hits for you. Skelly and Succubus were able to solo grim and barret at acceptable time in normal with me holding mobs.

Besides Epic content, pets perform very well in heroic. My skelly used all runes and lever with no exception (+14 on atributes during heroic) soloing many quests whie carrying my stone lol, namely 95% of prove your worth when i died in first trap.

Overall, i think feats spent worth, and since i got undead form, int and sp from PM and harper, enhancements wasant too costly also. I recomend try pets if u are not going final build because makes a breeze for leveling up to EN, while they can sbstantaly take some hits and so dmg comparable to one free spell being cast.

I've had good experience with pets with 1/2 that investment. The problem is that its a playstyle, a playstyle that those that are in a hurry and prefer doing a quest in 5 minutes that could take 20 minutes have a hard time with.
