    Tired of being out damaged by sampires,throwers and even mystic mages ...

    GDs are great tanks but their damage output sucks compared to other templates :rant2:

    (ofcourse, if we do get a better pet, the pvp community will go apecake over it with complaints)

    Personally I would like to see some pet customizations. I.e. item slots for pets. 3 would be cool:

    1 Claws/Talons augmentation slot: can have items with stats like a weapon (no base damage or swingspeed, just the same possible item properties and intensities like on weapons)
    1 Neck chain/Collar slot: can have items with stats like jewelry (+skill bonus should not exceed the cap)
    1 Body armament/barding slot: can have items with stats like armor (+resists should not exceed the cap)

    The new items for these slots could be made by craftting, i.e. blacksmith, tailor, tinker, artificer, etc...

    That would not only beef up existing pets but also add more depth....

    At the anniversary party in Fairfax, Mesanna mentioned some tamer updates on the dev team's wish list. There was, of course, no promise of implementation or any timeline, but I was very glad to see how many tamer-related things made the list - consideration of stable slots, new tameables, and what Mesanna referred to as "tasteful" color hues for various pets/monsters. I'm hoping taming will get some love sooner rather than later! It's definitely on the dev team's radar.

    Nice, glad there at least thinking about tamers. New pets would rock. I would like something along the GD just not a dragon lol. I need something to add some spice to it!
