You can't allow the gear to save, it becomes too unbalancing. A ghast with a conjured shield is better then one without. A ghast wearing IC/SS/BS gear is substantially better than a ghast with a conjured shield.
I used to have macro's that fired out and geared up and un-geared all my pets in a heartbeat. Farming IC/SS/BS loot doesn't take a lot of time and was easy to come by. If I didn't have to worry about loosing loot, I would have geared them out to absurd levels and it would have been unbalancing.
I was already doing nutso stuff with them in garbage gear and it would be absurd if could toss serious stuff on them. Go gear 5 ghasts out like I did, including +save +hp gear. Give 3 no weapon, and 2 ebony bladed longswords. Have triggers to pick up and re-arm the fumbled weapons to the ghasts. Rotate your 3 tanks so they constantly self heal and help mitigate the dmg and the wielding ones constantly blind the target(s).
Then post here talking about how even better gear you never lost wouldn't be unbalancing. Because that's the risk, so much of a power increase MUST HAVE a equally detrimental downside.
Btw, some pets DO need equipment. Solids can't use shield-related skills without a shield, and they don't show up with one. :P
