Wolf with pets build

Recommended Posts

I am rolling around in my head a Wolf with the Crab spider pets plus the epic pet, nothing else with the Crab spider options.  Pretty much a pseudo AR/Traps (debuff grenades) + Pet concept (Summon Spiderling, Call Reinforcement, epic  Summon Blaster) but there is a lot of powers and not enough options, as well as trying to get the pets as near perma as possible. Trying to bump up defense which looks like its possible to go positional, but AoE is lagging.

I guess my main question would be, have you tried Spiderlings and are you satisfied with how long they live? I think they die way too quickly in any sort of challenging team fight and never do enough damage to justify giving them a lot of enhancements. So, I have a couple of theories on their use:
A) Don't bother with them. You can be a maceless Bane Spider with three strong ranged pets and not bother with waving around a non-functional Crab backpack.
B) Take them, but slot them with the +Defense and +Resist unique IOs to keep your pets alive longer, and don't worry too much about their own damage.


If you are taking the backpack I would definitely take Serum. You're going to have more aggro than your pets and a self-heal is a handy thing to have.


Teleport Target is useful if your pets ever get stuck, or if you can't complete a mission because an enemy is stuck in a wall, and you can slot it with a Blessing of the Zephyr Knockback Resist IO, so you don't have to dedicate one of your free enhancement slots.


I recommend converting Frag Grenade's knockback to knockdown. Besides annoying melee teammates, knockback can cause your pets (especially Spiderlings, which think they're good at melee) to "play fetch" into the aggro of another spawn.

The Spiderlings should at least be 4-slotted for the Set bonus from Expedient Reinforcement. Being able to resummon the pets when they expire is important. Mileage varies if you want to put any of the pet global pieces in them.
