Notes and Tips

Elite skills are flexible and not particularly effective in this build. Generally choose Strength of the Pack (useful if alone), or Entangle for a bit of extra dps.

You can unmerge with your pet, and use it to tank for you. If your pet is about to die, merge and unmerge to refresh its health.
