    I like Boros since I ret while doing world stuff, but he's big and gets in the way often. I wish there was a way to shrink them like in Draenor.

    Hell, I wish we could just put him on a horse even. Like, sweet jesus the amount of times he'll just casually walk over my digsite while doing arch makes me frustrated as all hell. Or even a simple "dismiss/summon" option like a hunter pet.

    I was using boros, but damn his elek was driving me mad, not to mention his aoe shinny explosion that used to pull every critter out there leaving me in a state of permanent combat.

    I switched to Arathor, packed him with 2 legendary and 50+ gold items and for me now, he simply can just "be there".

    I haven't used Max or Nerus at all, as I find them too useful for Missions.

    While leveling and before being somewhat geared, I used Boros. Guy helped keep me alive a lot during earlier Legion days of World Quests and rare hunting before flying.
    I mainly stick with Arator now. A little extra damage to clear the enemies faster never hurts.

    As I normally blow things up with 1 crit or 2-3 attacks, I've never bothered with bodyguards. But with some of the elites out on the broken isles, tempting to try using Boros to improve my soloability, because there are just some that I can't seem to blow up without dying to.

    The only problem with Boros is he's bugged to mount every time you leave combat. Otherwise, Arator can't compete with his damage output, because Arator is not a ~12% damage boost of my dps on top of his own attacks like Boros is.

    I think it really depends on whether you do world content as prot, ret or holy (I've seen people do it as holy)

    I use Nerus in passive mode. I don't like using active bodyguards because they sometimes aggro more mobs than needed, including enemy players, making them run after them. While they are in combat I can't fly away. I can always call on Nerus if I feel he can useful.

    You can have him on active and if he keeps you in combat for some silly reason when you plan to fly away you can always dismiss him.

    Does the BoK from Max actually work? I haven't noticed my stats actually increasing and this kind of "trolling" would be just too well fitting for him (can't check myself right now since Max is on a longer mission).

    Do they even do anything?.. I have one to get the bonus Order Resources from WQs but that's the only reason.. he seems like shite, does shite and is just in the way when I try to loot stuff... I'd toss him off a cliff if it weren't for the Resources his gear brings!

    Originally it didn't, but blizzard did have a hotfix note saying it works now. I haven't checked to confirm.

    But I did and it indeed works. Thanks.

    Max is brilliant, I can now solo every "mini boss" on the island as ret with him just tanking them for me and I get them down within wings/a minute.

    The 10 % buff and the fact that he keeps aggro when I am doing 1mil+ dps makes him the best bodyguard in my opinion. And I am happy to be his squire

    I like max a lot, the 10% dmg buff and tanking is great.

    You do so much dps as prot or even as holy, it hadly matters imho. I do WQs as prot. I am a god in world content; there is nothing I can pull that even drops my health and I can dish out 500k-1mil dps.

    I would also add that prot has SO much aoe for tagging stuff, and in world content it is often about tagging as many mobs as possible as fast as possible.

    Just my 2 cents. Have fun!

    I use Meatball. The 20% execute(one-shots anything that isn't a world boss) and the 10% damage per orb stack(stacks infinitely) is nuts.

    He also uses the flying red disc cloud mount thing so he's very non-invasive when flying around.

    Honestly the only downsides are not using him as a mission runner and he has a hideous model from 2004 still.

    Arator is your tie to Turalyon. RPwise taking Arator with me is training Turalyon's son and for a human paladin that has a lot of value.
