Question Does giving -MR items to pets "really" help minimize charm breaks?

If yes, how do you know and how much -MR makes a noticeable difference?

I have to imagine it does given that other wearable effects (notably haste) are active when you hand pets items, so they equip the item.

Yes, it’s a big difference. Also the book makes mobs dual wield while beating the hell out of everyone like an angry librarian.

Never bothered in 54 levels of charm soloing

If I’m outdoors I can space the pet far enough that I can get a mez off on a break before they close. Should be even easier to handle with a snared pet on necro I would think

I guess if you wanted to make a super pet in a dungeon maybe. I don’t really group tho so

ah the book is a good idea, charm breaks don't happen as often as they did at 54 vs 56 so maybe it was the levels

If your just doing 1v1 charm solo, I would avoid the book at least. Pair of adamantite bands stacks for -20.

Book,rings and shoulderpads is like adding Tash. Very handy and not too expensive to maintain.

i like grouping too - i'll see if this package makes a difference
what i really enjoy is using a pet to beat up 2 mobs then calm release it for super fast regen, rinse repeat

comfy grind when it goes well

pet kits are really more of a duo thing, ideally when the pet isn't tanking or you have a cleric around.

best thing solo is the conga line. Just send your pet against like 6 mobs, root them all, then deflux em down 1 by 1 recharming as necessary. Use Paralyzing earth in slot 1 so you can gcd reset chain cast it for fast roots.

Iíve primarily only given -mr items while Iím group. For solo work Iím usually working too fast for it to matter.

If your keeping a pet,or reusing the same pet it's very handy kit.
Your level relative to mob level will always make the biggest difference,but MR is next on the list.
