If definitely isn't Force of Will. I only ever seem to have my pet vanish shortly after the pull...after I've used Bestial Wrath :/

It has to do with distance. Durumu's hit box is huge. If you start at the entrance of the room, and your tank faces him that way (where the death laser eventually forms), your pet will run all the way to the opposite side of the room, and despawn. I haven't had this problem since starting at his side.
As for the water elemental, I assume you don't have the glyph which makes it follow you everywhere, and it got caught on the other side when the bridge dropped, and despawned trying to find a path to LoS on the boss. Otherwise, IDK.
Had pet despawning several times untill i figured : At the start when pet starts attacking it looks like it's trying to find proper position, and shortly after it despawns.
What I did is: send pet in, then Master's Call it back and send it to attack the boss-never had problems again. Somehow after that pet doesn't have problems with positioning at all.
Hope this can help to some of you guys, cus it's bloody irritating.

No, all you need to do is summon your pet inside the inner ring close to Durumu. It will never despawn that way. Unless of course you send him in too early and the boss one shots it, but otherwise that should fix your problem.

This was happening to our hunter, warlock and myself (dk) last night. I had to go respec frost because I couldn't guarantee my ghoul would be alive and Bliz in their infinite wisdom keeps a 2 minute cooldown on unholy's ghoul summon.
We played around with pet positioning, summoning inside or out, and other things but it wasn't giving a pattern. They would just simply despawn.
Are the pets being knocked back? I haven't had this issue and I play BM on that fight.
Noticing a lot of issues, with DPS being a problem on Heroic my pet just happens to Houdini at the beginning of the fight where all CDs rolling, or my pet just decides to...not auto attack/bite resulting in a massive DPS loss. Solved the auto attack/bite by embedding bite casts into pretty much every ability, however I still haven't figured out the random Houdini episodes since I've tried standing close, far, all over the platform.
Most of the time it happens at the start of the fight, occasionally happens at a random point of the fight.
What confuses me most about Durumu, is that a Hunter's Hunter's Mark will appear up-side down.
Thanks Quosk1867, for the amazing sig! <3
UGH, this happens to me every other pull. It doesn't matter where I summon my pet or where I position my pet. It's completely random.
