Can we make pets untargetable now?

Why must they be targettable?
  • They act as body shields on literally anything. If you are between the pet and the sorc, forget it, you can't damage that sorc.
  • How many ults have we all wasted on a pet?
  • Is it fun and rewarding to accidently hit a pet with something despite you clearly aiming at the player?
  • Should a passive ability really give you 100% damage reduction on some abilities due to them not actually hitting you?

    That's kind of how games with collision detection work..they are physical objects represented in 3D space.

    the same goes for any pet that is targetable.

    Neither are trees, or rocks, or buildings. We must remove those from the game too. LOS is too OP.

    Which class has the most pets? I've never seen a warden use the bear ult.

    Just cause "thats how collision works" doesnt mean its a good thing. Look at the netch for warden.

    "Good" is subjective. It's part of the play styles. Learn to stop clicking abilities when something is in your way, that's a L2P issue.

    the only time I have a problem with pets is a wardens bear blocking a crafting table so you cant use the table without jumping on the table to find the one spot that will let you interact with it.

    They made the packleader's direwolf pets untargetable on top of taking away the damage...

    Leave pets targetable for PvE, make them untargetable for PvP. Plain and simple but some passives based on pet death should be reworked then to.
    I am doing my best, but I am not a native speaker, sorry.

    There are times I have seen the pet but not the sorc. If we cannot target the pet then that can be free damage.

    Because there should always be a carry class... you know like Moira and Junk in OW. I don't mean skill ceiling of course, but in the low/middle ground those classes are just a bit easier to play. Teleport, frag stealing, pet body block etc. Something for newbies to get used to PVP.

    Pros: constant Necropotence 5th bonus, pets cant be stunned – dont need to care healing them, matriarch heal is always available – dont need resto staff
    Cons: cant hide between pets

    IMO overall it will be huge buff to petsorcs.

    Pssst. Don’t tell them. Let them come back After more shed tears.

    Tbh. I am not sure why they are still targetable... When ZOS nerfed pack leader (Werewolf ulti morph with 2 pets) they made WW pets untargetable, and their argument (developer comment) was something like: "it was only causing targetting errors & confusion".
    As far as I can tell NB's shades (those count as pets too) are also untargetable.

    So for the sake of consistency, they should make all combat pets to work that way, unless they have double standards...

    WW wolves and NB shade do only dmg. But sorc pets heal and stun too on cast. So if you do a 1vs1 or want to kill a pet sorc it s often better to kill the matriarch first and interupt the recast. It becomes an easy win for you. Killing WW wolves or shade would a complete waste of time and ressources, but if you kill the pets from a pet sorc it isn´t

    Also make the twilight heal over atleast 3s then - so it´s not an OP spammed heal without being killable.

    sorc's got nerfed into the ground and you still find something to complain about, maybe its a "l2p" issue after all this time and you still cant kill a sorc?

    Shield = supposed to block attack
    pet =/ supposed to block attack

    Wut? You're demonstrably wrong. Some pets are supposed to block attacks and it's not just Sorc pets either. Bear, Blastbones, Engine Guardian... just some right off the top of my head. Old and newly designed pets too.

    Your statement is merely your own opinion that is in contradiction the developers' actual intent. Not to mention in contradiction with basic Newtonian physics too.

    You also can't attack through trees rocks and buildings... So that's just a dumb argument. Any good player would agree that pets should be untargetable.
