We've got a ranged beastmaster ranger with a raptor pet that has been re-fluffed as a phoenix. Said ranger is really keen for his pet to be doing lots of attacks, so we've houseruled Twin Strike to be one ranged attack from him, and one melee attack from his pet (which, frankly, I think is a nerf to the power, but he's excited and that's what counts).
Now he's looking for ways for his phoenix to do fire damage. I'm thinking maybe letting his phoenix "carry" a magic item with a daily power that does close burst 1 fire damage, or something like that.
Any suggestions on what items would be reasonable for adding phoenix-like powers?
