As an early birthday present, a good friend of mine gifted me a herc ticket! So I got him to 100 and now he awaits me collecting enough feral stars for his evolution. My goal is to make him be able to tank as many bosses as possible in the most smooth way as possible.
Forexample the bosses in TT3-3 sleeps, seals, debuffing, and purging and all that kind of stuff. So I was looking at the moods with Tidal Protection as I think that skill will fit my herc. I found 4 moods in the spreadsheet with tidal protection: Subtle, Naive, Indifferent, and Mischievous.
If you have any other suggestions they are more than welcome as well.
But let's take a look on those 4 moods 2nd skill:
Subtle: Reduce damage taken from players by 55%
Naive: Attacks all targets within a radius of 12 meters, causing physical damage equal to 100%, and holding aggro on targets. Amount of Aggro depends the level of skill and the pet's maximum HP.
Indifferent: Can not be selected by players for 8 seconds.
Mischievous: Has a 30% to attract all targets around the pet. Higher level, greater threat.
Subtle and Indifferent is a bit mehhh since they learn towards PvP, and this pet will probably never touch a tiny bit of it. I have my monkey for that.
So that leaves Naive and Mischievous left but I don't have any experience with those skills. The mischievous mood made me wonder if the aggro will be "built up" or more works like roar that resets it and only adds a little bit. I also wonder about how well Naive's aggro works. I don't even know if I should worry about aggro in the first place, since pets does pretty nice damage on Lv? mobs, buut I'm r999 after all so you never know lol. I can't really figure out which mood would be best but so far my bet is Naive. However, it would be nice with some confirmation on how they works.
Also what should I do with pounce? It has long time been populair to replace it with Bash, but is that needed for aggro anymore now with the evolution skills? Should I keep it for stun and increased attack rate, or still replace it with Bash, or learn a totally 3rd skill?
And suggestions for a herc name is welcome too!
As you see I still have a lot to decide for my herc b:chuckle
