At least you still have a pet that @#%^ing HAS TH. If I farm on pup, I can't let my pet fight on its own if I want to benefit from TH, which really slows me down.
is fairly easy to get, and is a ranged weapon all jobs can use. I forget if a PUP can switch out the animator or not, but there is a ranged weapon if it can be done.
There is a laundry list of things a BST would LOVE to do that a PUP can do (have a reliable magic casting pet, have more control over your pet, have a healer). Lets not forget that pretty much 17.5 other jobs would LOVE even the opportunity to fight two things at once with a pet (SMN is .5 cause SMN melee is rough), let alone using TH (because when farming, doubling killspeed >>>>>>>> TH). Are you really bitching about such a trivial thing as "punch once to land TH then move on to the next mob?" Seriously, is it THAT difficult? It MAY take you 5 seconds. sh*t, THFs had to tag 10-20 mobs in ye olde Dynamis, typically while pulling.
And "defeat the entire purpose of letting my pet fight a different mob in the first place"? Really? To farm anything thats worth it, it may take your pet 30-60 seconds to kill mob A, and 30-60 seconds for you to kill mob B. Are you honestly saying that doubling / nearly doubling your kill speed is negated by having to punch a mob once? Dont be so melodramatic.
I dont farm much on BST anymore, as I now have THF and a second account that can heal. Still, it was retarded of SE to nerf the TH on those pets. There are no THFs out there complaining about TH2 on a pet, especially if that pet cant add TH via melee hits like a THF can. There was no reason to waste energy on this when there is so many other things that need to be addressed. For example, instead of spending pointless time removing TH from BST pets, spend that time programming in the tier V BLM spells for SMN's elementals. Edited, Mar 29th 2012 9:18am by ManifestOfKujata
