Hello, Rob!To answer your comments: 1) While I know that most NPCs have large mana pools that make Viper Sting rather ineffective, there have been certain fights where Viper Sting is effective, on mobs with deliberately small mana pools, or bosses such as Moam in AQ20. It's certainly very situational as a tool in PvE, but it is worth mentioning. 2) I do understand that it is sometimes helps to choose a pet for tanking purposes rather than pure DPS, but my intent in this article was primarily to explain why these three specific pet families are so popular among hunters. I actually use a Boar and a Carrion Bird on my two high level hunters specifically because I like that balance of tank ability and DPS, and said so to some small extent in my last section. I might have been a bit clearer that I wasn't recommending certain pet families as much as explaining why they were so omnipresent, though, so I do apologize if I came across as a pet Nazi. I am very much a fan of choosing a pet for your own personal reasons, and not just because it does Max DPS.
