Before I get into this topic, I want to say this: I am not trying to judge this in relativity to other classes, how ranger stands in the pvp meta, or any other external factors. I don't need a compiled argument on why ranger is in an awkward spot and deserves to have near-abusable mechanics. I'm merely questioning whether or not soulbeast's ability to fully revive their pet every 10 seconds using beastmode is fair or legitimate in comparison to the other ranger specs or in combat against other classes, especially when killing some pets and/or taking even a few key hits from them is quite a pain in the posterior.
That said, is it intended, fair, or legitimate for soulbeast to be able to revive and/or full reset their pet without any consequences by entering beastmode and then leaving it? As far as I know, there's no cooldown or lockout penalties to at least the more troublesome part of reviving a pet in doing so, such as adding a penalty skill lockout and/or extending the period of time before being able to leave beastmode when merging with a dead pet, or extending the cooldown of re-entering beastmode after merging and unmerging with a dead pet to rally it. I would certainly not argue that killing a soulbeast's pet should bar them from using beastmode until it's revived by other means (that'd be extremely cruel given some pet healthpools and refusal to avoid area spells), but some penalty on the constant ability to revive a dead pet using beastmode to balance the cost other classes pay to kill said pet would seem fair.
However, that's just my opinion, which I try to balance since I myself am not a ranger main any more: what do you all think of this beastmode revive trick? Is it fair to have, given they cannot juggle pets or heal pets constantly like druids and cores can to avoid pet death, or rather is it legitimate since it's only a duelist trick and they should excel in dueling environments, or does it still deserve some drawbacks to it since it's still a powerful capability? I haven't seen anyone else address this, so I figured I'd at least see what others think of it.
