    I played as a summoner in EQ for years and one big issue was the pathing of pets and their ability to draw unwanted agro. This became such a hindrence that people would constantly tell magicians to unsommon their pets and magician would always be second runner up to wizards and necros. It was hard for magicians to get groups and raids. I hope this will be adressed. If the pathing for pets becomes difficult add a instant cast ability that lets you summon your pet to you and make it so pets don't agro, until they engage something of course.

    Amen to this!  However, it’s 20 years later... I have faith that pathing has improved. 

    Cant wait to test this for myself.

    I do remember in Lower Guk there used to be a lot of summoner pet aggro issues and always wondering if this was the time a big train would start. Man I miss those days. Pet AI in most games seems to be fine though so I suspect it won't be an issue unless it is intentional ( like a fury haste buff for a pet that gives it a chance to go wild or something ).
