The new demon hunter companions

I can't get on anything to test it, but does anyone know if the boar/spider companion can tank like witch doctor pets, or if it's just a glorified passive damage now? turrets too, do mobs attack the turrets?

i heard the boar will be similar to the WD flesh golem thing

Have they stated whether Turrets with Aid station will stack?

I heard the DH pets are more like a Zombie Dog, not the Gargantuan. If thats the case and they die that often + need to be recast, it actually makes them worse. That, or people just keep using Bat/Ferret like always.

the wolf pet will be equal to the zombie dog while the spider and boar will be much more durable

How much more durable, we talking the survivablity of 3 dogs, a garg, or even more than that? no matter what probly gonna take the boar anyway, that damage reduction is niice.

Reduced each Companion's attack cooldown from 1.5/2 seconds to 1 second
Weapon damage increased from 30% to 38%, but they can no longer critically hit
Companion's damage now scales with attack speed

Skill Rune Wolf Companion

Wolf Companion has been redesigned to be a more durable pet:
Now has comparable durability to one Zombie Dog

Skill Rune Spider Companion

Spider Companion has been redesigned to be a more durable pet:
Has slightly more durability than the Wolf Companion

Skill Rune Boar Companion
Boar Companion has been redesigned to be a more durable pet:
Has more durability than the Spider Companion


+

Sentry

Cost changed from 10 Discipline to 30 Hatred
Increased from weapon damage from 55% to 88%
Players can now have two turrets active at once, but an 8-second cooldown has been added to compensate
Sentry can no longer critically hit
Players can now have three turrets active at once with the Custom Engineering passive skill




So now DHs will be OP in 1.0.5.

One WD Pet + Three Wiz Arcane Hydras = GG

Those numbers still seem worthless to me. Will go right back to using my HungeringElementalVaultSmokeScreenShadowPowerPreparation.
