    Since this build uses Daedric Prey and the pet isn’t viable in all fights, what do you do for situations where you go to BSW instead? Seems like a pain to have to swap morphs just to grab Haunting Curse.

    The situations where pet isn’t viable are super rare. The only situations where you don’t want pet is VSO hard mode last boss, and VHRC hard mode last boss. In VAA you can run it if you have 3-4 melee guys tops, more than that you will have problems.

    So, what do you do when pet is not viable? Simple, your standard BSW build but with daedric prey instead of haunting curse. The dps loss isn’t huge, you still proc more shards, which also evens out the sustain side of the rotation.

    Yeah its basically like the old Velocious Curse (<3) rotation in terms of DPS. Daedric Prey without a pet is still more damage per cast than Force Pulse.

    Btw why not use the pet on Sanctum HM? I’ve never had any problems apart from the fact that you have to re-summon after each World Shaper thing lol

    Well, exactly for that reason haha. Because it dies at every worldshaper and you have to resummon it every time which doesn’t seem worth it at all to me.

    Aumann’s got it right, though Scamp death upon world shaper is not guaranteed. You can set it to passive and sprint to get far enough that it escapes, usually, but doing that is also a DPS loss compared to not summoning. I’ve run the build in there purposefully to learn it, but I can’t pretend it’d be top DPS to worry about saving two entities per WS drop, rather than just yourself.

     

    I’m planning to do an update and cleanup of this topic, which will include tips about how to keep your Scamp on task and situations where it acts against expectation. An example would be, if you go Bottom Team at HRC after Ra Kotu, your Scamp may walk through the player gate after it shuts to attempt to attack Top Team mobs, if you don’t utilize Passive mode to keep it nearby. Sustain adjustments are also on the future inclusion list, as the public PTS notes heavily suggest will be needful.
