This is a guide for Gunslinger DPS with “Endgame Pets” (Pets with 6 Skills +). It is no question that pets do insane amounts of damage in Heroics. With that said, this build revolves around buffing your pet to the max potential.
Now your stats, skills and abilities will most likely remain the same as a regular gunslinger build but with a few twists. See here for the regular gunslinger build.
In terms of DPS, Gunslinger Pet Build is by far the best DPS build a Gunslinger can achieve. Why? Pets take almost zero damage for standing in mechanics = 100% uptime DPS. The damage alone on pets is ridiculous.
Skills & Abilities
The skills and abilities are going to be the exact same as a regular Gunslinger Build. However, you want to switch out 2 passive abilities.
Joint Fight – This literally boosts your pets attack power by 5%, it will also make you not needing to ever worry about mana again.
Infection – Also another passive that boosts your pets attack power by 5%.
Pet – Your Main DPS
You want your pet to go full wind build., Why? Because Mad Wind compliments your abilities increasing nature damage by 30%. For the full pet build, check this guide here.
Boosting your Pet
From the 2 passives, there are other ways to squeeze the most damage out of your pet. These include increasing its max potential stats. Through the “Properties Increase” button on the picture above or increasing your pet’s raw attack power by guild skills, which are acquired through the guild’s “University of Magic” building.
