Concerning Myth minions

I just recently started a myth wizard and noticed that the golem minions hit points doesnt scale with pips like the death minion. Of course unlike the death wizard there is different minion spells so I was wondering does the minotaurs HP scale with pips at least? If not what his his set HP?
I just assumed that myth minions would scale with pips since my death wizards does ( as well as pet type) and myth wizards are soppsoed to be the offical minion class.

The point of the golem minion is that it lets you get a minion up at a cost of 0 pips. Myth has other minions where the health scales with the number of pips used.

I, myself, am a grandmaster Myth mage. As a myth mage, you will end up at the end of it all with 3 minions: Golem, Cyclops, and Minotaur. The Golem and Minotaur pets have set HP (and I'm sorry to say I don't remember what my Minotaur's HP is.) The Cyclops minion does have pip scale, from 1-4 pips. Minotaur I BELIEVE has around 700-750 HP, but honestly, I use my Cyclops at 3 or 4 pips more often.

Just as a side note, I removed Minotaur from my deck because I get more "help" in fights from my cyclops, who will heal, buff, debuff mobs, as well as fight. The minotaur acts more as a tank (for those who haven't played other MMOs like FFXI, a tank is the fighter who attempts to hold the hate/attention of the monster you are fighting). He Taunts and fights only, in my experience, and is not as well rounded a fighting partner as the cyclops.

So, for all upcoming myth mages, prepare for your newest allies, and have a ball doing it! :)

Don't forget that Myth casters also get a troll minion that scales from 1-3 pips for a total of four minions not three. Also while the cyclops is more useful he scales from 1-4 pips the minotaur cost only three so he is a bit cheaper depending on the cyclops you use.
