Core Hounds in Island Expeditions
Core Hounds can be a great pet to use in Island Expeditions -- especially if you don't have a tank in your group -- because of how many mobs they can tank at a time. The most important thing is to keep Beast Cleave
active all the time to increase their self-healing and help them keep aggro. You can also rotate their primary target for Growl
taunts, which is useful for keeping aggro on elites/rares and any ranged mobs that may be just out of Beast Cleave range to prevent them from attacking you or your party members.
You have no control of when to use Molten Hide
, but this ability does help a little bit with some extra damage (again, it scales with more targets). Obsidian Skin
has a short enough cooldown that it should be available for every major pull. And of course, you always have Primal Rage
available to use whenever the opposite faction team ambushes you.
