Common Uses

Binding the petcom command to keys or using them in macros can greatly increase your survivability through better control of your henchmen. See Mastermind, and Mastermind Numpad Pet Controls, which makes use of the petcom command through bind files.

This is also applicable to the control of Heavies and Pillboxes in the PvP zone, Recluse's Victory.
