Everyone knows ZOS is constantly focussing on tweaking pets so players use them even though most of the time they are super lame, now we have a new class whose main feature which is apparently an ulti is...wait for it...a pet. Why ZOS, why? Couldn't you at least move the pet skill tree from sorc over to Warden and make them a dedicated pet class so sorcs can have a useful third skill tree?

    The bear will be part of one skill line. And since it is an ultimate you will not be forced to use it. 2 other class skill lines to use for an ulti.

    There's that word again, "force". I think ZOS is forgetting the fact that they are playing a videogame that belongs to you...and not the other way around. /s

    My research shows that about 50% of all active accounts have never activated a pet so I'm not sure why they'd think that any player would ever want more of them.

    I completely agree with ya and said long ago they should have removed pets from sorcs (to mages guild tree) but Zos likes them because zero skill is involved. It's one reason why you see many new players picking sorc as their first character.

    I have seen some very good sorc pet builds to be fair, but the fact remains ZOS have a clear pro-pet agenda which they are insidiously imposing on the innocent citizens of Tamriel

    I think it has more to do with the fact that conjuring, pets, and companions have always been lore friendly in the ES franchise

    We will see. I just hope this new class will be balanced (and not OP). Otherwise it will be a "must have" class for PvP.
    So.. If it will be OP, and If you are PvP player - then yes - it is some sort of "forcing".

    But you don't do stats the way ZOS does stats.

    ZOS counts every sorcerer class that has ever unlocked a pet in order to advance the Daedric Summoning Skill line as a pet user.

    If you are Daedric Summoning lvl 50, you must be a pet user. That is how ZOS does stats.
    everyone is running this set it seems if everyone is running it you know it has to be op

    I am still excited about it, it's something different and a style of magic not really touched by ES lore yet (to my knowledge).

    Whining about whining. I like your meta irony.

    Unless of course, you're being serious? If so, pets need buffing not nerfing, currently they are weak sauce and only appeal to the inner cat lady in all of us.

    Before warden they didn't have enough pet classes,I just think they were in the wrong class.
    Raising floors and lower ceilings by zos standards has created an iron maiden.
    No matter how well you played,when the game is over,the king and pawn go back in the same box.
    Be careful what you ask for from zo$, you always get punished.

    Let's see if they add any kind of pet controls and / or a pet frame to the UI to allow for true pet management, if so, it could be great...

    ...if not and we have to rely on the derpy AI with no way to even see our pets health then I think I'll pass (and no using a pet isn't 'forced'), just like I do with sorc pets.

    The old warden class from the early beta was pet heavy and i'm glad to see it come back.

    I just hope they fixed all the bugs that made it pretty much unplayable back then ...
