Necro/Lock/Pyro in Rift, Necro/Mez in Guild Wars, Hunter in WoW, and Summoner in Allods, but not so much for the pet, rather the fact that it's a DPS pet class that can toss out some decent heals, the pets themselves aren't terribly creative, but for Xadagnian, you do get an undead crossbowman as your DPS pet, and as you level, the pets automatically become more B.A. looking, that's kind of nice.

My FAVORITE, all time, would definitely be Beastlords in EQ. Once they leveled up, they were a fantastic class.

They had slow, so you didn't need a chanter or shaman, and I'd say out of all the different hybrid classes, their buffs had the most utility. Their mana/health combo regen was a blessing, they had haste if no other haste was around, and they had some baby shammy buffs that were still effective enough to be happy to have them.

Their DPS is top notch, their pets were probably the strongest out of any pet class in the game (some mages may disagree, but I say they're wrong :p) and out of all the non-tank hybrids or melees, when pinch comes to shove can even play at tank in an emergency situation, or in specific group situations, like taking on fairly easy mobs for AA points or quests, etc.

Plus, their pets, for the most part, looked damn cool :p

So, add up strong pets and dps + wide utility and I'd say they're more kick-ass than any other pet class that I've seen in any other game.
