About Sky-Bo

Postby Vek » October 16th, 2014, 4:27 am

So has anyone gotten this guy yet and tried it out? Found two on AH for about 40-60K so thats a no no for me at the moment.

Did we really need a 325 speed Decoy? At least it does not have Thunderbolt(damn that hits hard on 1-2 pets now).

Seems like an interesting pet but nowhere near as annoying as the MPD.

Seems like an underwhelming pet to me.

Its slot 1 attacks are a low damage dot move, which doesnt lend itself to be spammed. As well a low damage stun proc, which benefits from high speed.

The sticky grenade in slot 2 seems fairly impotent on all but P/P. But the second move reboot actually have synergy with slot 3 decoy to help protect you while you heal.


All in all, not a terribly impressive pet, rather low damage.

But, on the other hand, it's such a cute pet. It flies like the mount. :lol: That's all that matters, right? The *cough* cute factor?

Hrm, just aquired a P/P Sky-Bo. might as well take it for a whirl and see what it can do. Possibly could do something with delayed damage. Sticky, flamethrower and launch.

Edit: Tested it, feels -quite- underwhelming still.

I ran a p/p sky-bo a few PvP matches.. The grenade glitches on me and never started to count down and never went off. I don't like decoy moves so I knew I wasn't going to be too thrilled with it.

Its a half decent pet and I'll try it on some more comps

I think S/S is the way to go. While MPD 309 speed Decoy is damn annoying, 325 speed Decoy can be even more so. First it means that 325 speed Flurry is no longer sure to bring the Decoy down as it can easily do against the MPD(my main users is S/S Grasland Cottontail and P/P Fjord Worg Pup with Dazzling Dance). Now you need even more points in speed to use Flurry. Still Barrage and Stampede moves will punch through it quickly enough even without speed.

I ran with Flamethrower and Sticky Grenade. While Flamethrower initial hit does not hit very hard it adds up, also I have been lucky to been able to match Sky-Bo vs Mechs and on those Flamethrower does respectable damage. Sticky Grenade is still quite useful since your opponent can't avoid it. And with Decoy you can easily Flamethrower -> Sticky Greande(in either order) and switch to another pet.
