A flinty cragbeast makes the best pet (imho). Let the group take it down to about 5% life - then claim your pet. Tash/Malo and charmed with True Name, related AAs – Charm lasts average of 05:00 during the trial for me. This thing throws out massive dps. Throw a scarecrow on it if you or a groupie "needs" to see what is going on - it is rather large :) Send in pet when tank has good agro or calls for assist if you play that way.

Also at a minimum, do yourself and your group (yes you all belong to the Chanter in your group!) a favor and have a dedicated ranger/druid in group who's first priority is snaring this bad boy EVERYTIME charm drops. It will regenerate its hit points and eventually will come for you. You will get a feel for when charm will break and keep communication with group open. The last thing you need is to have charm drop on a pull when the group is focused on the pull. Squishy Chanter = wipe in most cases.

Stop pulls - break Charm - re Tash/Malo/Snare/Charm - rinse/repeat as necessary, take a few more hit points from it here and there to keep it subdued when charm breaks.

I saw a post suggesting using a Pally to stun the pet to re-charm it. Great idea in theory, but bad if Pally is MA and charm drops in a pinch. You need someone looking out for your lack of AC first and added dps second - this pet will do most of the damage.

It’s not a continual 30 minute run for most of us out there. You need to be patient! Non-DC charming of a pet is high maintenance and some, if not all of your group, needs to share that responsibility for the benefit of the group and the run. Groups come and go - never the same peeps twice. EVERY TIME I've done it this way, we have won. Take care of the dps and you’re in there like underwear.

Heres to the SICKEST dps in your group! /cough from a Chanter no less. Did I mention haste? No? Even SICKER dps! Hope this makes your Tipt run a gimp event!

True name (and any charms beyond PoP era) nerf the DPS of your pet. If at all possible, use Command of Druzzil on a 64 pet. This is the last charm that allows 100% damage output of your charmed pet. As annoying as finding a 64 can be, the DPS is vastly increased. My husband and I used to duo Vxed/Tipt this way back when 65 was the level cap for insane exp.

Now with increased level caps (meaning 70, I haven't tried this at 75), a normal group can blow through this event in 45 minutes easily. The added risk of doing it this way (due to DoTs on the charmed pet, making it unmezzable) isn't really worth it anymore. If you're going to run it with 3 people, charming can still be viable if you want the extra DPS.

Keep in mind:
1. the pet will take more damage than any tank nowadays. It will get a 14?ish minute DoT on it if it's used for tanking. A chanter does not take the place of a tank in the group.

2. Sony nerfed ALL charms beyond level 64. Charm anything higher, your DPS will be cut down.

3. mephits will make your best pets, if they turn on you, they won't eat you up in procs, but their melee damage is very high. Hynids seemed to have the highest MR and broke charm too frequently.

4. if you have a snarer, I recommend not keeping the mob at low health. You want it running for the chanter so you can pbae 1-2 tick mez, (think circle of dreams) for fast de-buff and remez. The name of the game is beating respawns, and I've seen too many charm groups not keep up because of mis-handling pets.
