I like the snare, confused variant. I’m just disappointed they didn’t make it a debuff/survivability tree in general. It would make up for TTK and DPS loss. If the tree in general created ways to disable, weaken enemies, then you wouldn’t care about less damage since TTK might be the same. You’d be an absolute monster with red/purple though.
The knock down should be electrocute or something that effect ( ‘shield stripper’ with all the same health and ammo drops). Maybe while it’s out it increases recharge rate.
The pet shield is fine. Fix the loader FFYL mechanic. Maybe it creates a singularity and jams enemy weapons when it blows itself up.
Wooly armor could be a debuff against armor instead based on whatever condition. They could also have done another stack skill like “Attack the body, the head will fall” a victory rush type augment that stacks normal hits for a few seconds of double criticals ( yes, make it anti synergy with megavore just to force choices). I don’t know - all the emphasis on Pet damage seems unnecessary since they’ve fixed the scaling. I’d rather more utility from the tree.
