    Just curious...I can peace a tamed pet. I can discord a tamed pet. Why can't I provoke a tamed pet (preferably onto it's owner)?

    Because there's no bard-love, only tamer-love.

    Hot, sweaty, sheep-wool covered tamer-love.

    Then the tamers would agree to the firebreath nerf. :)

    I agree with provoking pets, just not on the owners. I think if you tame something it would have a kind of bond to you, like pets do to their owners.

    On top of that, it would totally negate tamers in PvP. I am all for slowing them down, and making them weak, but just because someone has magic resist I don't think a mage should get half the damage they do reflected back to them.

    Because it's been this way for 10 years now. Apparently it's not fair even though it would be the ultimate equalizer against tamers.

    I haven't played a bard character since... in protest.
