    My Alpine wolfy stays at my side on each and every mission in pve . Never ventured out without him(always equip wolf totem 🐺 from wolf spirits shrine)... We've been through thick and thin... Kick mordrem butts, svanir butts Everytime ... When enemy moves was relentless, use f2 chilling howl, run around or run away :p ... Nice visuals, the howl sound, gives me goosebumps and boosts my morale ;) ... For PVP 🦅, smokescale or gazelle

  • River Drake named Bolt. My very first pet. :)

    Most of my game time is spent in spvp.

    Nothing does what Smokescale does.
    The smoke field for stealth,
    the knockdown
    the dmg

    and even more so while merged in Soulbeast, the f2 combo is beast when you are trying to hump a mesmer
    the f2 gets me TO the mesmer
    the f1 gets me a little closer to the mesmer and then stuns him

    It all adds up to a lot of pressure vs evasive classes.

    mhm, ok, sure, whatever you say, no after you, I insist, no really, please, be my guest,

    Snow owl. 1200 range leap and perma swiftness is a god send when roaming

  • Jacanda with its lightning

  • I think a lot of people's will be Smokescale, as is mine. My trusty goodest boy Ashes has been permanently slotted since the introduction of HoT. I change my secondary pet from time to time depending on the situation, but Smokescale is always there as a mandatory take. Speaking from a WvW perspective, it isn't actually mandatory, but it's skills are so valuable, it may as well be.

    Besides Smokescale, I also love Wolf and Tiger. Wolf was my go-to pet pre-HoT and I still use it somewhat regularly.

    I stay merged all the time. F1 is a cleaving 1k-per-hit self-heal, F2 is a blast finisher for my torch field, F3 is my fury+quick+bleed dmg aoe.
    There may be more optimal choices, but this one works really well for me.

    Same, before Smoke, Wolf was my go to. I used to run Wolf/Drakehound for that double fear (before they nerfed that)

  • smokescale is pretty great, but for wvw zerging, it's hard to go past birds for the mobility.

    My favorite pet is brown bear, I love the animation of it rag dolling when it gets launched, and he was my old trust worthy meat Shield back in ye olden days of PvP, throw him out to soak up damage and cleanse some condis before my “real” pet was ready to come back in.

    Sadly he’s been retired due to post hot pets just completely overshadowing my poor bear, nowadays I’d say the Floatibg zappy plant is my favorite just because it brings the AoE I never seem to have lol.

  • Wolves. Being able to consistently cancel their knockdowns and save them to bait dodges or use when needed is amazing. Also, you can cancel the leap in soulbeast via weapon swap to cut the CD by half but still get about 95-99% of the leap distance, making wolves the best movement skill in the games.
