I haven't found many builds I liked yet, but I did find one I really enjoyed, that worked quite well. It happened to be a Pet Focused Build that Worked. Quite shocking, I know.
I'm still playing around with the finer details, but the main points are using jaguar and flying bird (of your preference) combined with QZ, sic em, Rampage as one, and horn buff. One good thing I found is they don't all have to be active to be effective (which would cause periods of downtime where you would be ineffective) because of the naturally high crit rate of these two pets.
By now people are probably like "Pets can't even find their target in PvP, much less hit it." which is what I thought at the beginning too..
However, using the swiftness buffs from various things (warhorn, rampage AO, longbow vuln shot) combined with a slow for even just a few seconds (chill on axe, cripple on sword auto attack, or freezing trap) your pet can keep up with enemies quite well, especially if they are ranged and have to circle strafe, or melee and you are kiting them.
I'm still working to figure out whether sword or axe main hand is better, and whether to use longbow or shortbow on weapon swap. This might come down to personal preference/playstyle however.
The actual downsides of this build are:
- You need QZ if you want your pet to do fast burst.
- "Sick 'em" is almost a requirement (still testing this to see how much dmg it actually provides)
- If you have QZ and sick em, if you take lightning reflexes you need healing spring for condition removal, if you take the condition removal signet you don't have a reliable stun break.
- Troll unguent is the best heal for this build hands down because your pet usually doesn't get bursted like you would, however some people don't like this heal.
