This fight sucks for pet classes. I'm a Warlock and I couldn't get our PUG healer to send any heals to my pet, so it died about three times during the fight (Affliction spec using Felhunter). Either the puddles or the aura must not count as AoE damage or something; I forgot to look through the combat log, but something was causing some major damage that wasn't being mitigated through the pet's AoE resistance. I probably just should have used a phased imp the entire fight.I wish healers would realize that throwing the occasional heal to Warlock pets is more important to us that it used to be...depending on the pet, the group is also getting some nice buffs from them as well.

I healed this last night on my disc priest and I can say it's hard to keep lock and hunter pets alive even more if you need to heal the players that are standing in the puddles and don't move out of the spray. If I got the time I throw a PW:S and a renew on them but they tend to die pretty fast. So maybe it's better to have your pet on your side if you need the buffs instead of having it attack.

I can't really blame the healer for this; the pets just die way too fast because they have no auras.

If Avoidance was working correctly for this fight, your pet wouldn't die. But its not. So basically, as a BM hunter, your going in with almost a third of your DPS cut. Your pet will die, as your Mend Pet alone cannot keep up without the mitigation. Basically, your only gonna get off two CD burst and no pet in between, and that's only if you HOTP or rez your pet after it dies the first time.
