While the Ranger enjoys a fairly consistent play rate and is in no way in an unplayable state, playing since launch has left me with no doubt that the Pet as mechanic is lackluster at best and falls behind any and all other profession mechanics in terms of effectiveness, responsiveness and engagement value (read: fun). It feels like a mechanic that was never improved upon past its most basic functioning state.
As such, I am of the opinion that the pet needs a good stern look and some sweat and dev tears to get it into an actual engaging and rewarding mechanic, hence, a bigger rework is needed.
But that is just my opinion, what is yours?
