There doesn't seem to be much love for boars as tenacity pets. Any reason for this? I

Boars do make decent tanking pets, but the special abilities of other tenacity pets are much more desirable for mitigating damage than the boar's gore ability.But really, if you want to use a boar, then use a boar. It's more important to enjoy the game.

There's just nothing special about them any more. Their only special ability increases bleed damage taken, which is not particularly exciting as a tank pet. Bears essentially reduce all physical damage they take by 10% by debuffing their enemies. Turtles and Beetles have a second tank cooldown, reducing all damage they take by 50%. Shale Spiders should have the most HP, if you are soloing. Heh, even the gorilla's interrupt is still more useful for a tank pet than the bleed damage increase.Poor boars. :(
"The only other short-duration pet debuff is the bleed debuff, and most mobs in 5-mans don't stay alive long enough to take much damage from Piercing Shots, the only hunter bleed effect."
