On an artisan: yes
On a bourg: no
Battle artisan is so overpowered, that your pet also becomes overpowered. Buff it with a cleric and it's like releasing a mad pitbull in a children's daycare. It will taunt your targets and he only costs 5SP to get.
On bourg no because he doesn't tank for you + his damage output is rediculous low for a damage class. Also he takes 19SP to max which is a lot of SP for something with so little advantage.
On craft artisan: Doesn't matter, the only decent way to level artisan quickly is an overpowered battle artisan.
I am sorry, but a bourg dont got a terror knight,
and then yet again, if you have an overpowered artisan (I am one myself), what has the reason to get a slow summon, with not fast atking speed?
yet again, this summon is in my eyes quite useless, since it can NOT tank either, if you plan on taking on bosses, its better to have 2 distance
shooters, then to let your TK go first, and see him die in 1-2 hits.
It is better then to attack first yourself, and if you are not sure about the healing that you will run away while the summons shoot from distance,
then can atleast hang up at the speed with distance shooting, a melee summon HAS to come close (many bosses do an aoe damage, which are dodged by hunters)
hope that I have proved a point now
oh and just to know: woho looted my first epic in a devourer master, a dual blade epic 100 dura _/!!!!!!
