Other changes i would like to see to existing companions and mechanics
- Raptor should not be locked behind beastmaster mastery, would love to run the raptor with the werebear as a druid
2)Raptor node that gives permanent damage and size after 15 kills in a zone, I do like this node, but to server a more melee build purpose with all the aspect buffs, would like to see a raptor gains 1% bonus damage for every kill that YOU get not the raptor, this node would be hidden behind a only allowed 1 companion node.
- Bear companion should get a node for baby cubs just like baby scorpions. A added node that when cub dies mama gets frenzied
4)Wolves skill tree should get a node for an alpha wolf, where you can only summon 1 and this way take advantage and have a viable solo companion wolf build
P.S. I know the beastmaster just got love and is unlucky that it will see these things soon, but just ideas for down the road i would love to see for it
