Macros, some love them, some think they are cheap but to the MCH, they can be a major asset.:
Delivering State Effects: Use this macro to deliver state effects (pet specials) much more effectively. Train your pets to deliver with the same special command. Dizzy/stun/plague strike, does not matter, if it is inconsistent, the pet will still deliver on a regular basis using this macro, however.. THEY WILL ATTACK WHATEVER YOU TARGET, so it takes a little practice.
Halting Your Pets Attack Cycle: When you want your pet to stop attacking and come to you (especially now that “ferocity” is in full effect again. Use this macro to have pets come to you because the looping macro WILL get you in trouble due to pets aggroing the wrong target:
Pet Following: Use this looping macro general following to run in the background when you are on a speeder or something and want your pets to at least try to stay with you without losing interest and attacking a dark jedi knight or something:
This also resolves all pet tracking issues and keeps them from stacking on top of one another... have this looping in the background to have pets follow without issue while you are traveling with a speeder or what not. Losing the dump command lets it run constantly, so you never lose your pets while traveling. (ALSO THIS IS WHY PETS NOT FOLLOWING IS A NON ISSUE FOR ME)
Stop All Combat Including Pet Attacks:
You need a stop command for when that baby bull rancor pops out and you want your critters to stop aggroing EVERYTHING you target...
/ui action clearCombatQueue;
These work the absolute best of any macros I have come up with (they are simple enough but help TONS) and constantly deliver state effects to your target. The pets will aggro whatever you target, even if it is off in teh distance so you still have to coordinate where they are attacking.
if you are working your pets for pvp, you are gonna need something higher level than a level 30 pet. While they can have great ken resists, they will be probably vulnerable to everything else.
A toxic merrek battlelord is a great option, or a high level BE pet with good resists.

Good luck, sticky the macros if anyone wants them.
Another update tonight, just need to look through my macros again.
