Re: Raven or Bear ?
AT end game levels, Moria and beyond, I find the Bog Guardian or the Bear, some times ol' Snaggle tooth ( all three to tank), to be the best for soloing. For grouping, your pet will depend on the content, but I find, in order of what I use, Bog Guardian (Ranged, flanks and pulling), Bear (Tanking and taking agro off of me or the healer), Eagle (Power regen and Fan the Flames), Raven (Shadow Defense and flanks) I use most often and maybe the Wisp (Healing).
