1: Call Pet
||Time of Day:
Cast on you: You summon your companion to your side.
Cast on other: Soandso summons a companion to their side.
Summons your pet to your current location.
Items with this effect
1.) TRUE- Pets no longer aggro mobs by being in aggro range (Thank God).
2.) TRUE- Pets still dumb as a box of rocks when it comes to pathing. They take NPC path vs. the way you want them to go.
3.) TRUE-Pets can NOT be summoned while they are on any mobs aggro list anywhere at anytime.
A good example of the use for this spell was mentioned below in a previous post. If you are traveling in a zone with nasty drop offs and cliffs (Sol Dungeons, the Deep, Velks, etc etc) telling your pet to attack a mob will get you the "Attacking %t master" response you hope for, but it may not get your pet to actually do it. If your pet fell down a pit, under water, etc etc it will not actually get to attack until it 'warps' (for lack of a better description) out and pops ontop of the mob you pointed out for it. This warp can take as little as 3-4 seconds and I have had it take up until I actually killed mob myself THEN used this spell to get the pet caught up to me.
Remember pets are just NPC's that you can boss around. They travel the same lines as what your killing and they 'warp' just like they do too.
4.) TRUE - Telling your pet to attack %t will get you the response you want & if you use this spell, as soon as pet pops to you, it will be off on its attack. If you have changed your mind about wanting that mob attacked, make sure to /pet back off or /pet hold before you cast this or as soon as your pet arrives, or it will be off killing what you asked it to.

Will you get multiples and/or does the pet lose aggro when summoned?
I'll experiment myself and let you know what I find out.
Pets can get multiples when using them to pull.
Also, if you don't have a pet focus item so that your pet is slower than you are with R3 or higher, you could use it to hunt a large zone that you would normally leave him behind in while you run around looking for prey.
I will say this though, it is not worth taking up a spell slot to have while you are hunting though. I suggest you get the silverflank (think that is the name) belt that has this for a right click effect. The belt has nice stats and has this effect on it so you don't use a spell slot and yet can still have the benefit of this. It is a must have belt in my opinion for pet class.
I know quite some druids who don't have it at 60, and with the recent alterations of pets it's even less of an issue, since they are non kos. So the spell has been made more or less obsolete unless you are going to a multilvl place, but with pet being only lvl 35 it's no issue for a druid to have it up.

BST also can get gloves with this clickable, no mana wasted either.
There is my 2 CP's, hope it helps someone!
Anyone tell me if that has either changed or is based on wrong information?
There is a method to every madness.
