Agreed, the daily summon time nowadays it nothing more than an inconvenience..
It's especially inconvenient when it comes to some of these Pet Perks' activation requirements.
It seems like no matter the perk, they have at least one requirement with a "do something for a certain duration", and with pets having a limited duration, that very much puts a limit to the amount of use you can get out of it.
Blue Shield has "Maintain Divine Link for 1 minute", and Bonding Ties has "Stay mounted for 1 minute".
But, probably the worst is "Healing Rays".
Its activation requirements, which you have to complete every one for the perk to activate once, as it is for the other perks, is:1. Keep pet summoned for 5 mins (0/1)
2. Use Healing (0/10)
3. Use Party Healing alongside your pet (0/5)
4. Apply the Life Anthem effect (0/1)
That first one is the worst. 5 whole minutes per activation at the least.
And to get from rF of the perk to rE it's 10 activations!
50 minutes at minimum of a pet's summon time for the first rank!
It's an inconvenience by itself, though the mandatory wait time is basically the same as a cooldown, comparing to traditional skills, but the limited summon times of pets make it worse.
