Hey, just gonna be a short thread here, since none of my friends seem to be able to help me figure this out. I haven't played my hunter since Cata, but they seemed rather fun this time around so I decided I'd start leveling it to get a feel for it.
I picked BM as my spec, as I've been BM since vanilla and it seems like it's still fun.
Soooo, my issue. My pet dies instantly to any aoe from any bosses. It seems like the usual 90% damage reduction simply doesn't apply to my pet for some reason. My 2 friends who also play hunters have not noticed the issue, but they both play survival, so it might be a minor issue for them, I don't know.
Anyway, basically I can't do any real dps because my pet doesn't survive anything. Is this simply a case of Blizzard changing it so that you have to micro your pets out of aoe/pull them back when the boss casts something, or am I encountering a strange bug?
EDIT: Should probably add that this is at 86, not 90, so it might just be some weird scaling issue. My pet "only" has 110k hp and is a wolf with ferocity.
