    I just bought "The Sweeper" which has Minion of Eternity on my level 68 necro and cast Lost Soul (67 pet spell)

    Minion of Eternity is level range 59-75 but I didn't get a "The Sweeper feels alive with power" message or anything like that when I cast my pet...

    Did I mess up, or do pet focus items not give you a message?

      I don't think pet focus items are reporting right now. My DoN Orb with Minion of Darkness also does not glow with power or anything anymore. That is supposed to affect pets up to level 75 as well.

        You're right, my focus definately works (max hit is up considerably) without any message from the item.

        Thanks

          There is no message given for pet focus items ... from my understanding of it, a pet focus item will summon and "increased power" pet from the database; looks at a different column in the pet model database. The developers must create a new pet model for every pet/focus combination.

                Neat! They keep adding and adding, I swear ><

                SoF should be interesting for pet foci...

                    Allegedly pet foci below Anguish level no longer work now in SoF. Need testing to be sure.

                    There, added some missing pet foci items.

                      Pet focus for 76-80 pets now start at Ritual Summoning according to Rytan; don't trust what lucy shows as min/max level anymore. The big change was introduction at spire servant & beyond a cloak in the "back" armor slot containing what was explained as appropriate mod2s to go along with the pet scaling. Just as pets are summoned with higher value AC armor based on focus, they now get summoned with a mod2 cloak. Things such as accuracy, etc. I was unable to parse any improvements in pet defensives using higher tier focus outside of raw AC gain (mitigation) and saw zero improvement on pet avoidance, dodge, riposte, etc. My findings were never reputed, so I expect it was intentional to forgo any actual defensive improvements on our pets via focus outside of raw AC gains.

                      Base Pet, no focus: 100%

                      Ritual Summoning +10% dps
                      Minion of Discord + 12.5% dps
                      Servant of Chaos + 15% dps

                      New Foci with Cloak_of_Mod2s:
                      Tier 1: Spire Servant + 17.5% dps
                      Tier 2: Servitor of Scale + 20% dps
                      Tier 3: Enhanced Minion I + 22.5% dps
                      Tier 4: Enhanced Minion II + 25% dps

                      Raid Foci including Cloak_of_Mod2s:
                      Tier 1: Enhanced Minion III + 27.5% dps
                      Tier 1: Enhanced Minion IV + 30%% dps
                      Tier 1: Enhanced Minion V + 32.5% dps
                      Tier 1: Enhanced Minion VI + 35%% dps

                      Here are some parsing results to give an example, zero pet AA to keep it simple, using 80 rogue pet & Sigil of the Abberant (post +STR change):
                      No Focus DPS @ 178
                      Ritual Sumoning DPS @ 184
                      SoChaos DPS @ 193
                      SpireServ DPS @ 199
                      ServofScale DPS @ 205

                      ...having maxed pet crit/flury AA (SoF included) increases pet dps by another ~15% regardless of focus. I never bothered testing further once I saw the numbers were lining up with the expectations.

                        In layman's terms, this does or does not work on the 77 and 80 pets?

                          Negative. This focus level was the cut-off point for 76+
                          Lucy shows this correct, Slot Description
                          1: Pet Power Increase(25)
                          2: Limit: Max Level(75)
                          3: Limit: Min Level(59)

                            Posted on another thread but will post it here as to not lose it and update at a later date as needed.
                            --------------------------------------


                            The long and short of it I guess per lucy .... x marks the level of pet spell affected by the worn focus. Yellow are pets that get summoned with the additional mod2 cloak. Level 72 (green) is where the base pet stats were increased and those foci had a lesser effect on the pet. Not nerfed, just worked to a lesser degree but with the base pet being more powerful, supposedly evened out.
