    Or enhancement lines that open at level 21-25. Your pets get 10 APs to spend at epic levels. Give something epic for us to spend on it. Multiclassed arties/druids might be angry for this ones, but gives value to pure classes.
    Main: Amossa d'Cannith, Sarlona, casually trying Completionist [<o>]

    Almost-never-played-alts: Arquera - Chapolin - Fabber - Herweg - Mecanico - Tenma

    I want DDO to be a better game. Those are my personal suggestions on: Ammunition, Archmage, Combat Stances, Deities, Dispel Magic, Epic Destiny Map, Fast Healing, Favor, Favored Enemy, Half-elf Enhancements, Monk Stances, Past Life, Potency, Potions, Ranger Spells, Summons, Tiered Loot.

    Personally, I would say don't summon pets in EE.

    I generally only use my pet when soloing.

    Pets are like hirlings, usefull in some niche situations, but when running with a party in EE content they tend to be a liability.
    They activate mobs before party is ready to deal with them, or aggro mobs that you didn't intend to fight at all.
    Jotmon - Let's not forget why we play these games - to have fun - ~
    Guild: Degenerate Matter - 200 (Former Guilds: ChaosKnights, Big Damn Heroes, Shadowfiends, Order of the Drow, Unusual Suspects, Raided R)
    Argo-Jotmon(Completionist - before the Otto's/XP pots easymode), Jotmonheals(Clr17/Rog2/Mnk1-Epic Completionist), Whatthetruck.. and many many more alts..

    Update 24: Champions... "whew, it's ok, it's only a red name" .. sad day when trash spawn Champions and their one-shot ignore fort attacks instill more party fear than the Red named bosses.

    I do wish they had a "stand in front and block" - (turtle up) command. Maxing out their HP and giving them evasion makes for a good mobile barrier to block delayed blast fireball and meteor storm. I've been keeping the Beholder plate docent + 10 reflex upgrade on my dog. Figure the antimagic spike is useful even at endgame for those annoying casters that hang in the back.

    In any case extra enhancement points at epic levels for dogs or even an epic enhancement line would be nice to have as an in-game option to choose from.

    I use my dog in epic normal or hard. But I dont bother with him in epic elite or raids.

    this is as a fleshy arti who doesnt bother with recon or recon scrolls. I 'might' toss him a heal scroll once a week, but I usually let him die; more often than not, he makes it to the end of quests just fine w/o any aide from me
