    Songs that buff Pets / Wyverns / Avatars, Attack / Accuracy / MAB / M.Acc / Regen?

    Can we have songs for Bards to cast that only augment our pets or a master's pet? Is this possible?

    Thank you.

    Just allow all party buffs to hit pets too. Some mab/macc songs would be nice both for player and pets though.

    Just make pets recieve all buffs that are currently on their master. Done and done for everything ever.

    I don't see them doing this, as it would make abilities such as Spirit Link with Empathy (which already adds the master's buffs to wyverns) and pet-specific die such as drachen, puppet, beast, and companion rolls useless. Geo spells also already indirectly benefit pets when they are used to debuff the target mob, which basically helps everyone attacking it (acc down, def down, eva down, etc).

    Bards are the only support jobs with little to offer pets (their debuffs in general are limited to elegies/nocturne, threnodies and requiem). But considering their advantages in other areas in a party setting [selective targeting using pianissimo (cors can't), songs overwriting each other (cors can't refresh active rolls), being able to grant up to 5 buffs (cors can only do 2)] it seems only fair that cors are thrown a bone here and granted the sole ability to buff pets.

    Given the incoming nerf to BST, I suspect you will see far less cors in groups anyways. Making BST stand in range virtually guarantees that people will just use a stronger DD that doesn't require it's own set of rolls (or a cor at all for that matter) to put out high damage.

    Although that could be offset by people switching to summoner since they will effectively become the new masters of safe ranged damage after the update. The problem though is that summoner is far harder to gear / play than other jobs and summoner pets can't tank nearly as well. So if the paladin dies, things get far more complicated in that scenario. I think you'll see a lot of people going back to the RNG strat or magic burst strats. Those don't rely nearly as much on Cor for support.

    Don't worry. Automatoms are much more durable tanks than plds anyways. And with 2 if one dies you can just deus and put it back in no problem. And their dmg isn't as horrible as people think

    There are no plans for adjustments to be made that would allow pets to receive buffs players ordinarily receive.

    Which is bad because it actually ended up making pet jobs harder to balance, not easier.

    Someone care to tell me what's wrong with a couple Yukes?
