Companion's Relocation

Move pet a short distance.

This ability moves your companion forward in the direction you are facing.

There are a number of times when it can be useful to move your pet away from you a short distance. For example, if you have someone else "tanking" an opponent, you might want to move your pet behind it. Pets can do more damage striking from behind an opponent, especially the water pets once they get the backstab ability. Also the pet may take less damage from certain types of attacks that only work in front of the opponent.
