You'll see in your pet damage window something like 6k... 6k... 15k... 6k... 6k... 15k... Still no where near the benefit of a melee pet, but at least they get some bonus now.
Didn't Koz tell us this was simply impossible when the suggestion was made shortly after the fire pets got "FIXED"?
Said no way that FBO could be made to increase fire pet DPS iirc...
If it was not Koz who said it, I appologize.
As shown though with all the pet changes made for /pet hold he will devote time to classes but that is one area where we can point to for a lost opportunities. Koz and his /pet hold was never suppose to work as it did. The changes he pushed for and got really were not needed and took time away that could have been used to make twin cast coding changes to work on RS pets or other issues as in swap pet or suspend 2 pets and have one out. That still bothers me to this day his revisionist history on what pet hold was, and his saynig it was never suppose to work the way it did. Amazing how it was perfectly fine for years and was so simple. Issue a /pet hold and the pet stopped attacking and returned and never attacked another mob till you told it to, just add in a /pet back off and we had it all covered. The only issue was you need to hit the /pet hold key when you zoned. Not really an issue for any mage paying attention, and instead he went on his crusade .... end result, lost opportunity for something meaningful to have been added, as that was all code changes.
We were like no, it mean what it says. Pet hold. Not later. Hold now as soon as I press the button. We all put in a /pet back off also, but an aoe would not cause the pet to engage untill the pet was told to attack aagin. He had it changed to fit what he wanted and tried to convince all we were wrong since Luclin went live and /pet hold entered the game that it was not suppose to do what it always did.
Anyway that is revisionist history from Koz. He wasn't even playing when pet hold went in, and he tried to tell us how it was suppose to work, not as it did work. Yes it ticked a lot of us off.

What I miss most from the old Mage boards are the 37 page Calebe vs Kozvar rants.
I used to read them to my kids at night and it used to make them LMAO so hard they would stay in the house on the weekends instead of running the streets and getting in trouble -- They were teenagers at the time.
Now in their 20's and planning to start a family in the next few years, my daughters wanted to revive the Friday night Calebe vs Koz family tradition for their own kids.
Only got a couple of paragraphs from this instigation, but I will try again in the future whenever the opportunity arises
Hence why everyone made a hotkey that had pet cold and then pet back off commands. Seems irritating to me that that would ever be considered anything but working as intended because it was that way for many years.
I don't recall any complaints from any solo/group magicians about that or raiders either.
