Garrison Daily: Jahan, Samm, Archimedes. Farm for pet XP

Postby Moraven » November 27th, 2014, 3:34 pm

This fight is repeatable for easy Pet Battle XP.

I use Celestial Dragon and Nexus Whelping. After 10 fights the worst RNG was my 3rd pet had to attack once and survive a hit. I have had my Celestial Dragon solo it.

Samm and Archimedes open with a non attacking ability. This is the best time to be swapping if you can.

My worst fights are when my Celestial does not kill Jahan. Swap to lower level pet to finish him off. Then to Nexus Whelping. Mana Surge can 1 shot the other 2.

Revised battle to open with Nexus and Mana Surge. Swap to non 25. Swap to Celestial.

Battle Pet Master has free Pet heals.

XP bonus item examples.

Safari Hat (10% increase to XP)
Lv 20 - 2393 XP (1595 to level)
Lv 22 - 2046 XP (1860 to level)
Lv 23 - 1848 XP (1920 to level)
Lv 24 - 957 XP (no difficulty bonus, 1980 to level)

Safari Hat + Pet Treat (10% + 50% increase to XP)
Lv 20 - 3480 XP
Lv 21 - 3240 XP
Lv 22 - 2976 XP
Lv 24 - 1344 XP
Lv 11 - 4536 XP

Lesser Pet Treat can be stacked with Pet Treat.

Battle can take ~70 seconds.

This is not 100%, but I would stay it is pretty high chance of success.

This does count towards Draenic Pet Battler, Win 500 pet battles in Draenor.

Edit:
Revised battle plan:
Nexus Whelping - Mana Surge, make sure you dont kill all 3.
Swap to non 25 pet for a round
Swap to other 25 to finish the fight.

Old battle plan:
Celestial - 3 (Moonfire), 2 (Arcane Storm) , 1 (Flames) until dead
3rd pet - do one ability, then swap
Nexus Whelping - 2, Mana Surge for the win.

For those wanting quick battles.. Frostfire ridge (by an ogre waygate) has a ton of wild pets. I use a Warbot to start, drop the trap and missile away or switch to an imperial eagle chick (p/p) ..if you're short on bandages then add a healing pet like a crawdad

You usually face 2critters so a fight can be done in less than a minute if you only want speed ..i leveled a toon from 99 to 100 with that zone

I revised my fight to.


Revised Battle Plan:
Nexus Whelping - Mana Surge
If Samm is still alive, Arcane Storm. (Best Scenario)
If you are now fighting Archimedes, swap to non 25 pet.
Swap again to Celestial Dragon.
Finish fight.


The non 25 should only get hit by the first Arcane Storm from Jahan. They have to survive a 234 crit hit.

As long as they have that much HP and not Flying, they should be good. Based on my low level pets, that is level 3.

Correct. They have to do something or get hit by something. Wild Magic debuff counts.

Took me 5 battles to hit lv 3 - 25. Safari hat + lesser pet treat + Pet treat.

Streaming it for a little bit. suftv on Twitch (my low post counts prevents posting links).

Updated fight and description:
Jahan, Samm and Archimedes make up the 3 Flying pets you battle at your garrison.

Their Birds of a Feather buff, 50% more chance to crit, also benefits your team.

What makes this fight easy is Jahan opens by casting Arcane Storm (Arcane Winds weather). The magic ability Mana Surge gets additional damage when it is Arcane Winds and it is strong against Flying pets.

Dragonkin take less damage from flying attacks and some of them have powerful magic attacks like Mana Surge and Moonfire.

You are able to level a low lv pet since Archimedes casts a debuff (Wild Magic) during his first round. This is enough to get your pet participation credit for XP.

My Team:
Nexus Whelping (Dragonkin) - Mana Surge
Celestial Dragon - Arcane Winds, Moonfire
Any lv 3+ pet (unless flying)


Nexus Whelping alternatives:
Non tested quite the same yet.

Celestial Dragon alternatives:
Sprite Darter Hatchling


Typical battle:
Nexus Whelping - Mana Surge
If Samm is still alive, Arcane Storm. (Best Scenario)
If you are now fighting Archimedes, swap to non 25 pet.
Swap again to Celestial Dragon.
Finish fight.
Heal at Batlte Pet Master for free.
Repeat

+XP buff items can be bought from the Battle Pet Master for Pet charms.
Lesser Pet Treat - charms - +25% XP
Pet Treat - 10 charms - +50% XP
They can stack.

Safari Hat is a 10% XP bonus item that can be obtained by defeating 40 master pet tamers.

The non 25 should only get hit by the first Arcane Storm from Jahan. They have to survive a 234 crit hit.

As long as they have that much HP and not Flying, they should be good. Based on my low level pets, that is level 3.

Level 2 H/H can also be the carry pet. They'll have 2 health left, as they have 236 to start.

quills for some reason has a weird laggy interaction for me hitting the celestial dragon

And a flying pet needs to have 342 health (since a crit will do 341 to a flyer), but you could have power levelled those, too.

The lag happened for me vs either of my chrominiusus (chrominuisi?, LOL, I had 2 teams to speed things up / reduce bandage use/time).

I did this for a couple of hours last night to get my 500, and I found using Lil' Tarecgosa was a better combo. Mostly because frequently I would face off against Archimedes with the Celestial dragon only to see him require two hits to kill. Granted SOMETIMES this is the case with Lil' Tarecgosa, but more often than not her Surge of Power was enough to 1-shot.

Really, this is a trivial change and both teams get it done, I just found using Tarec to be a bit faster.

The Azure Whelping being the an alternative, alas not capturable. But farmable.

I'm surprised no one mentioned the emerald protowhelp. It can solo this fight by keeping emerald presence up, using emerald dream intelligently and spamming emerald bite :). Haven't run into any bad rng yet and haven't had to use my backup pet. I just swap my level pet when archimedes comes out then swap back to my proto!

I took two nether faerie dragons, which seemed to work really well.

2, 2, 1 (Arcane Blast, Life Exchange, Moonfire)

Always hit Moonfire on turn 1, overwriting the arcane winds to avoid it buffing itself. Then I would hit Arcane Blast, which got increasingly better.

The first opponent goes down after a few arcane blasts. If your faerie dragon is >400hp, you have the rest of the fight easy. Hit life exchange and you're good. If not, and your carry pet is >400hp, I would swap that pet in just because the first thing the second opponent does is usually heal if you're over that threshold.

Then I bring in the second faerie dragon and repeat.

For the last opponent, I would usually be low, so I would hit life exchange while he debuffs me. That would be JUST enough healing AND damage that my moonfire would finish off the last pet.

It seems to work somewhat reliably, but I would have bad turns. It works REALLY well when the carry pet is capable of doing a couple hundred damage and survive a round, since that extra guarantee was necessary once in a while.

------- Edit -----

I've now tried swapping in the Emerald Proto Whelp in slot 1. if I had two, I might try two. It's still no guarantee, but I actually have a better record with the proto whelp now.

I'm not sure what the best way to run the proto whelp is. Definitely keep the Emerald Presence up, hit the Emerald Dream when you have some damage, and don't forget that your draconic buff makes that emerald bite do tons more damage.

But... yeah, either of these strategies works most of the time.

I tried using the Celestial Dragon, but the lag was just too bad on Archimedes' attack. Lil Tarecgosa worked better for me.

This works for sure but it isn't terribly fast. The advantage to Nexus Whelpling + Chrominius (my choice for 2nd pet) is how fast it is. I usually take 60 seconds per fight and the only fights that I lose are where I screw up and don't pay attention and hit the wrong button. :)

well, this trio was in my menagerie sunday and I had 7 pet and lesser pet biscuits. I didnt spend 7 whole hours doing it....but boy did i get stir crazy after a while.

I didnt want to just get everything to 25....I got quite a number from like 7 to 23

oh yeah, nexus whelpling....mana surge, sometimes a mana storm or whatever its called to kill Samm...which weakens archimedes enough for chrominus to easily take him out. sometimes im not paying attention and chrominus has to use howl and THEN surge of power.....sometimes he dies and i just do another mana surge.

either way, you cant go wrong with those two
