    It really depends on how you play and your template.

    If you need more tank the HP and resists are key. In that case your beetle is very nice..could be a ...little better not much.

    if you are going for out and out damage then you surly can do better.

    For me, I play a "damage output" crucial template so when I tame beetles I am looking for
    124 eval (110 post tame)
    180 stm(@110 eval blesses itself got ~11 stm so 169 dex bare min)(think swing rates)
    135 poison(123i think post tame)
    then resists need to be 65/50/*/*/50

    After I see that I evaluate weather Id tame it based on the rest of the stats
    Mana is nice but HP trumps it in my book. Then strength is the last factor.

    That said I tend to stand under my pets swinging with a sword so vetting is always an option for me.

    For a distanced tamer max HP might be a higher concern then resists then the whole damage output thing.

    Best thing about it is....

    Your the Boss!
