Sorry late for the discussion-
I have NEVER understood people who use sheep, even back at 80 cap. Using sheep... I cant even comprehend a reason why you would (inb4 HP tanking lol)
Also, killing EP mobs slower = the same thing as killing hard mobs slower. Why would you gimp yourself in one situation and not the other?
Rabbits (speaking for Lakshmi) are always, ALWAYS, on AH and are about 6k a stack. Rabbit also easily does 1.5x-2x the damage of sheep, can AoE farm, and can heal yourself of the minor splash damage you will always receive.
What the person you were with was probably thinking, was that the 99 jug situation was like the 75 jug situation. Sure, a level 73 HQ tiger would beat the majority (if not all) of the uncapped/75 jugs. This is by far a different situation though, as sheep has inferior stats to nearly every other top tier jug (ladybug, rabbit, tiger, slug, ect)
So in short, I have no idea Thydonon. It's like the BSTs who wear Perle or Fulltime AF3 head.
Edit: Actually, Id like someone to tell me why there would ever be a reason to summon a jug besides Rabbit (DD situations), Ladybug/Hippo (Tanking situations) or Slug (Magic situations)?
