These gloves are considered mandatory for a pet-oriented Witch Doctor or Necromancer, but actually affect all pets, even summons and devices like Wizard's Hydra, Barbarian's Call of the Ancients or Demon Hunter's Sentry.
Unlike other Attack Speed boosts for pets that raise DPS by increasing damage (to avoid animation glitches), Tasker and Theo actually raise the speed of attacks.
In return, Tasker and Theo are quite rare compared to most other Legendary gloves.

Tasker and Theo
- 309-366 Armor
The master and his hound were the most famed hunters of their day. He died fighting beside his favorite dog, just as the way he would have wanted it. His loyal companion soon followed.
- The gloves' description and name possibly refer to a real world story. Theo, an English Springer Spaniel, was a bomb detection dog for the British Army in Afghanistan; Lance Corporal Liam Tasker was his handler. In the five months the pair were stationed there, they set a record for number of bombs found in Afghanistan. On March 1, 2011, the pair came under fire from Taliban insurgents. Tasker was killed in action, while Theo survived long enough to reach Camp Bastion where he succumbed to a seizure.
