Work would be something that synergizes with the core concepts of the play style. In this instance, is there a way to use the CD that takes advantage of standing still and buffing your pets?
The reason I say I don’t think it works is because none of the skills boosted are core pet build skills. Bolster, TTF, LoM, and Resolute are buffs that require minimal, if any, conditions for both you and your Jacks to benefit. Collaborate, though it buffs the Jacks, only does so when they die.
As an example of what I mean; let’s say you just activated your AS and have a badass Jack and a normal Jack. In order for Collaborate (at 10/5) to give your Badass a damage bonus, your normal Jack has to die first. A normal Jack’s lifespan, without TTF, is 14 seconds. So, it would take about 14 seconds (assuming enemies don’t kill them sooner and that the badass Jack doesn’t kill any enemies) for your badass to get a 10% damage boost. In that same time span with Bolster (at 10/5) they would have 280% damage. And this is assuming that the Jacks are not being attacked or attacking enemies. Once you factor in TTF, Collaborate becomes extremely unreliable as a consistent damage buff for your Jacks.
So even though the CD does a good job of buffing Jack, it doesn’t do much of anything for his pets. You could just take a hybrid spec, but even then a Chronicler and Role Model do far more for the Jacks than the CD.
So basically, I suppose what I’m asking in essence is whether you can make a good pet build with only JC, Incentives, and MB with extra crit damage and reverse recoil.
