Honestly I saw that change and that has me excited as heck. This is pretty much the build I use, along with Red fang at times, or I will switch to a deadeye class mod that has 3 in fast and furryous and 2 in go for the eyes. Which lets the pet’s first hit deal over 1 mil, this lets him clear through trash mobs fast has heck since the class mod gives that extra 35% to enemies above 75% hp so combined with go for the eyes it becomes actually decent

Yeah, Go for the Eyes has been a staple of my build for a few months, but it’s getting to the point where it may be worthwhile for other pets aside from Countess and Beefcake, at least to cleave through trash mobs quicker.

I’m glad go for the eyes much better now. I am stubborn and like using the skags mostly. The eridian skags singularity can destroy a lot of enemies at once. And the horned skag, if you can get its command attack to be the first opening attack on an enemy, it seems to count toward the first hit since its a physical attack and it just does so much with both those things combined

Unfortunately Horned Skag was one of the pets whose attack command got nuked in last week’s patch. It was nerfed by 50%. Noelle said the devs are aware of it though and that it wasn’t intentional.

Dang. At least they know about it which is a great sign

Not sure if this has been mentioned much, but if you’re trying to maximize He Bites damage I have found it best to roll Mob Mentality. With Red Gamma active, most enemies like to huddle around your pet so it stays procced much better. Then they get +30% fire rate and damage for around +60% reflected damage.

I played around with this yesterday. As long as my pet is close, the enemy targets it. I only get attacked if my pet wonders off and enemies spawn near me. If I call my pet over to me or Gamma burst it to me, then the enemies disengage me and start attacking it. I did this with the Bounty Hunter COM.

As long as the pet is close to you, or close to the enemy?

Both. If the pet is close to me, the enemy targets the pet. If the pet is close to the enemy, the enemy targets the pet. The only times I was targeted was in a large area when my pet would run off to attack stuff and some enemies spawned right on top of me.

I will say this wasn’t a true isolated test. I wasn’t using anything like the Hidden Machine to see if the icon appeared. I was just going about my business and lazily standing still. Most of the time nothing shot at me.

There needs to be some kind of icon for Hidden Machine. I’m not sure how it would work unless it highlighted enemies that had Hidden Machine procced.

I gotta ask how you get it stacked that high lol

We run similar skill trees, I have splash on COM, AoE on artifact and 200 splash on weapon and could only get around 15m outta Countess AC lol

That was a hollowpoint kill. Get enemies close together and you’re guaranteed like 100mil minimum lol.

It’s ■■■■■■ stupid man, once you get the hang of the AOE radius whole groups just blow up. I’m gonna do a write up for it soon, but just focus on enemies that are close together, especially melee units.

AaaHhhhhh :bulb:

It takes the Hollowpoint proc and adds pet scaling, I presume?

That’s my theory for right now. Something to do with pet scaling or splash
