Let's equal the playing field shall we? Pets will stay the way they are but lets balance the tamer instead. 1) Want to heal your pet with bandages? The tamer should be required to have high dex to have the fastest heals just like I have to do with my fighter. 2) Commanding a very large,very powerful combo such as a mare/dread combo or a greater should be "mentally taxing". It should cost mana to give commands and to control your pet.Perhaps the same way the bardic spellsongs work. Every other template has to balance mana usage and the points asigned to each stat. The tamer template has no such limitations. They command pets that,head to head,would quickly destroy any Mage/SW/Mystic summon(that costs mana to cast). I know I'll be told I am wrong because I do not blindly agree that tamers arn't overpowered and need no balancing. So save it,I already know.
