I was messing around with him in PvP tonight. A couple of notes that differ from the tooltips.
Blessed Hammer is actually 3 hits for 1/3 the listed damage each. If you have any +damage debuff applied a flyer will vaporize.
Righteous Inspiration doubles *all* damage that your team does on the turn the swap happens as well as the following turn. It's not just a doubling of the next pet's attack, but also any poisons, pheromones, or effects like Geyser or Whirlpool that are about to go off. The swap itself appears to be random choice, and not based off of health.
A well timed dodge/burrow/lift-off will shut down this bomb, but in PvE this is better than Howl for the Water Spirit combo. You get a doubling of the water effects, and if the active pet dies you still have an attack waiting that is also doubled for whatever gets swapped in.
Note that the swap is not free in the same way as the Scaled Basilisk. The enemy pet will execute its turn and deal damage against whatever pet you swap in. This is another reason why Shieldstorm is looking quite strong.
