I am a Wa/Ra with a Pet. I focus on Melee combat, I took Ranger secondary becuase I thought it would be useful to have a pet. I don't have any attributes in Marksmenship, Wilderness Survival or Beast Mastery.
My problem is that my Pets main use seems to be as a mobile roadblock. I attack something, Pet comes with me,we kill it, so far so good. Then I hit c and spacebar, to target closest and auto attack. The problem is Fido is in the way and I just stop unable to reach the target. I have to manually sidestep the pet then when the path to target is clear I can attack them.
Are Pets designed primarily to work with Rangers operating with bows at range and so this problem does not exist for them ? As such I am considering dropping the Ranger secondary and switching to the ever popular Wa/Ne.
Am I doing something wrong ?
