That is pretty bad advice, guys.
Breeds are important.
Look at Son of Animus, a Power / Power breed mechanical pet.
SoA comes with Batter
which hits 1-2 times, plus an extra time if you are faster than your opponent. But given that Son of Animus only have rather low speed of 260, Batter is a quite unreliable ability to slot. And to make matters worser, SoA comes with a second speed dependent ability in Interupting Jolt
that only interupts if you go first, which a 260 speed pet rarely will.
A Cogblade Raptor on the other hand, can have up to 341 speed and is a much more reliable user of Batter, where it proves to be a quite viable alternate choice in skillset.
Many dragons comes with Tail Sweep
, which does more damage if you are slower than your foe. So if you are looking at a Scourged Whelpling, which comes in P/S and H/H breeds, the H/H breeds stands out for 2 reasons.
1: You can be more sure of doing more damage with Tail Sweep due to being reliably slower than an opponent. 2: Due to how the Undead racial works, if you are slower than your enemy, you can get an additional turn of immortality.
