Pet class in ESO?

MightyUncleanMightyUnclean Member EpicPosts: 3,531
I tried ESO a couple of times, but found the combat in PvE too challenging for my clumsy hands.  Did they ever add a true pet class to the game, or are those magic user demons basically it?  I might be able to succeed with a pet tanking for me.  Thanks!

    Have you tried the new Warden class?  probably not a true pet class, but fun.

    It will only tank if you let it gain aggro, it's not a true pet class but allot of fun. You'll do fine with the warden.

    Well the warden has a grizzly but the bear doesn't taunt - he's a DPS pet.

    Just curious... do you use a normal mouse or a gaming mouse? For me in a game like ESO having all my skills and weapon swapping on programmable mouse buttons makes all the difference in the world.

    My left hand is just for moving and I do everything else with my mouse.

    Ease of play in ESO hinges on two things:

    1. mastering the basics of avoidance - block, bash interrupts, dodge and just plain walking out of telegraphed damage
    2. building your skills intelligently - there are hundreds of guides out there for doing that

    The most frequent criticism for ESO combat is that it's two easy, not too hard.

    OK, thanks for the info!  I tried a gaming mouse before, but it's even worse with all the small buttons.  I have a particular problem reacting quickly enough to dodge.

    There are all kinds of gaming mice. Some much better than others on how they lay-out the extra buttons.

    Mine, for example, has a mini-joystick HAT switch where my thumb rests naturally. That gives me forward, back, up, down and in as 5 programmable buttons. All the other buttons are also very distinct and situated in a way that you just can't confuse one for the other,

    I also don't like the ones that just have multiple rows of tiny buttons.

    Honestly, no, no true pet class. The pets are glorified visual DOTs. That is it. Little to no control over them, can't even command them to do anything. In WoW, even the elementals you summon (for both mage and shaman) have control over them with their own special abilities. I know different game...but just an example of even the most basic summons having some control.

    That was why I stopped playing ESO. I only play pet classes, and I don't think a glorified DOT makes anything an actual pet class. That doesn't mean ESO is bad, just personally not for me. The rest of the game was pretty great, and vastly better than GW2 imo. Just no pets ruined it for me, since that is a make or break for me personally.
