I have a couple characters I've been raising, and one is a Hunter. I've been noticing many of the higher level Hunters have a varying array of pets, but there seems to be a reoccurring theme for the ranged pets.
It seems most get a River Nastier for their first pet, then take a Draggler (which I currently have), and then either move to a Sola of some kind, or a Hiver, which they seem to keep until they hit 60. Many will upgrade the Sola to a different one as they become available.
I've read some of the topics discussing that each has a different range, but seems that once they are tamed they have a fairly standard range. (This hasn't been completely proven as far as I can tell)
So, what I'm actually looking for is people's opinion of a good ranged pet that will be used mostly for PvE, and if possible, some reasons for the choice. Thanks for taking the time!
