Really easy stuff = epic pet is the best
Tough stuff you arenít pet tanking = focused water is the best
Very tough stuff you are raiding = Why did you summon a pet? Do you want to wipe us??

There. Saved you all that silly gathering. Go loot a water staff.

As a non-raiding pleb, why no pets in raids?

Depends on the raid, some places they tend to warp. Others they can cause level agro issues being so low

Nothing I have done on P1999 was as painful as getting the earth staff. Nothing took even a tenth the time I spent tracking, camping and negotiating with the guild to get help for mages on that quest.

And nothing felt as wonderful as finally getting it and summoning my first epic pet.

Three months later, I am still as happy as larry that I completed that quest and obtained the skittlestick. No item I will ever earn will give me that level of feeling of hard work resulting in accomplishment.

Did it change my EQ experience? Yes it did, and very much for the better.

YMMV.

As far as an hours spent / dkp / plat perspective...mage epic is probably the lowest bang for your buck. Its sad to put 1 million plat into a character whos best spell is COTH.

It's almost exclusively in ToV; Mage pets are welcome in most epic fights, in VP and ST, in all of the Planes, and against the old school dragons and gods (eg. Cazic and Tunare).

Sadly though there are a lot of raids in ToV, so it works out to Mages not being able to use their pets in something like half of all raids, just because (back in 2000) the EQ developers failed at creating paths in a single zone.

They can be used to ToV more than people think or currently do. I get why ToV is a focus, but it's not the entire game. The epic is a huge upgrade for raiding because of its guaranteed level, sure a max level focused water pet does more DPS, but good luck getting a max summon every time you cast it.

People hating on the epic simply have never played a Mage before and after to understand the difference. Is it worth acquiring? That's something people need to decide for themselves because the cost is so great. For most folks it simply isn't.
