I've known for a long time now that in pvp with pets, dps (damage per second) is king. You can argue that if you like, but that isn't the point of this thread. However, I've always been of the opinion that in pvm, resists are more important than dps, until this morning. I always used to farm greater dragons with my hiryu. The resists on the hiryu match up very well to the dragons' damage, and with their special attack (lowers physical resist) I always figured that their dps was good enough. However for the last few days I've been hunting greater dragons with my cu sidhe, the cu sidhe's damage type matches up very well with the greater dragon's weaknesses. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the cu sidhe did, it seemed a little bit harder to keep alive, but I didn't have too many problems in that department. Then this morning I went back to my hiryu, and that was when I realized how much faster the cu sidhe kills dragons than the hiryu does. It seemed like my hiryu took forever, and required far more bandages. So this leads to my question. When you hunt with pets, do you attempt to match the mobs' weaknesses with your pets damage type, or do you attempt to match your pets resists with the mobs' damage type? Do you prioritize offence, or defence?
