Mage DPS 49+ (anyone parse?)
Hi guys,

I'm about to hit level 53. In group situations, I'm wondering is it better to use the 53 Air Pet, 51 Earth pet, or focused 49 water pet? Has anyone parsed DPS on pets 49 - 60 and if so, what do the stats look like?

Thanks for the feedback!

While I didn't parse them yet, there was a pretty big difference in the time it took to down the same mobs when I started using the 50+ pets. 50+ Water > 50+ Air > 50+ Earth > any pet below that. It shouldn't be that surprising, either. The earth pet has a damage component to the root 50+ which is bigger than the water nuke at 49. It also hits harder and more often due to the level difference.

Dyzil's is an interesting case because it is far more mana efficient solo than the others (if trying to compete for 100% XP), but in a group situation the 50+ pets will be better than the 49 ones.

Another interesting tidbit is that the 54 water beats the 57 Earth using the same metrics. Probably unsurprising considering the nuke does twice the damage as the root and once the mob starts running, backstabs end it quickly.

TL;DR: use 50+ pets* as you get them in a group situation unless you REALLY don't want that mob rooted for some reason.

*Unspoken pets are left unspoken.

If you have a warrior tank, earth pet for the roots for easy access to fast aggro via proximity.
Otherwise the 53 Air pet is going to outdps a 49 water pet/51 earth and it will stun.

Don't forget dual stun whips! Especially useful nowadays with the gating mobs.
