I'm also improving their Overload damage significantly.
Hey Archon, I've come to really enjoy the WCP's and appreciate the changes considered above. However, one aspect of the plaforms is sorely lacking: longevity. I've noticed that they seem to try to "jump" away from explosions, which is a greatly needed combat pet response in general. IMO, THESE pets need more, considering their long cooldown, having only two active at a time and lack of durability. No, they shouldn't be able to survive being directly targeted for long, that wouldn't be fair, but losing them and staring at 3-minutes before I can relaunch doesn't sit well either.

Also, and this may be just me, but I noticed that I tend to fly differently when they're online in an effort to keep them online. This isn't true with my HEC because I know I can respawn almost as quickly as I need to.
