I conducted my second round of scientific studies concerning exotic pet DPS. The results may surprise you. Out of my three exotic pets, the Cunning family pet came out on top. That’s right… my Chimera was head and shoulders above the Devilsaur and Spirit Beast.
I was a bit surprised at first, so I ran the test two more times. Strangely enough, the DPS only improved on the subsequent tests.
Previously I had tested my Devilsaur and Spirit Beast, attaining 746.7DPS and 664.2DPS respectively. My Chimera posted 797.6 in the first test, 804.7 in the second, and 818.1 in the final test which was an overall figure from tests 2 and 3.
I was expecting the Chimera to be competitive, but I had no idea that it would come out on top. The test may be a bit skewed due to the fact that the target dummy’s health is below the 35% threshold where Feeding Frenzy comes into play.
However, if we were to use Loque’nahak’s DPS as a gauge for base damage, 744DPS would be the end result taking Feeding Frenzy into account. The Chimera’s weakest performance was still over 50DPS above that mark. O.O
I’m not too surprised with these results, as I had foreseen the Cunning family pets emerging as raid worthy in 3.1.
After reviewing the screenshots, I saw that two of the tests ended with him not at full happiness. I’m going to run one more test with my Chimera possibly tonight, and another with my wolf. I’ll post those results probably tomorrow.
