Compared to the pet class with pet heals and pet res, right? Also the pet class with more defensive based pet buffs.

This just makes them more suitable for bosses and soloing (Vulcanus included). I suppose it's worth waiting to see how much HP Kubrik mobs have until ruling them out entirely DP-wise.
Most DPs are almost entirely ranged. So while you're running to the mob to stab it with your kitchen knife, the most is already pretty much dead.

OL has the NM VM wish they had. OL and CO have the superior NM. Also, this is what they make wis for. The [cheddar] are you DPing with, full str/agi? If you can't hit nightmare on a mob then I doubt your kitchen knife is hitting very accurately.
