Elfuego's Awfully Big Adventure Plushie Edition Guide

Postby Elfuego » December 10th, 2014, 10:31 am

Hey guys, This is an ongoing thread with Strategies for each section of the An Awfully Big Adventure achievement. As I get more strategies down I'll post them here. Most of the strategies are of my own design, but I wanted to give a shoutout to Jerebear. He contributeq a lot of posts here on warcraftpets and comes up with some very good strategies!

A few things to keep in mind : RNG RNG RNG! It kills me when we post a working strategy AND the video to prove it and people still post how it doesn't work or they can't pull it off. With this achievement Blizzard is INTENTIONALY hamstringing your team by one pet, but you can use the Plushie to soak damage in some cases. The Plushie DOES NOT have to interact at all, so don't swap if you don't have to. So keep an open mind, and know that the first few times you attempt it may not work, but the strategies posted here will ALL have video links and complete walkthrough guides.

So grab your Elekk Plushie and lets get to work! - The latest videos for WOD - The Plushie Strategy Guide

****Dark Moon Faire ****
Jeremey Feasel
Team: Emerald Proto-whelp and Lil' Bling

Start the round with Breath spam, the idea here is to use Ancient Blessing when under half life and reinforce it with Emerald Dream. Once Judgement is down and Honky Tonk is under 1/3 life, swap to Lil' Bling. Start with his Extra Plating and then Smckthat.exe spam. When Tonk is down and Fezzik enters, Start with Make it Rain. This will keep constant damage thru the rounds on the monkey. From here just keep smckthat spam up until hes down!

Team: Lil' Bling, Wild Golden Hatchling

Start the round with Rocket, then swap to the Hatchling. Use Lift-off to negate the incoming whirlpool damage then Breath once to end the Bubble( make sure you connected with Lift-off). Breath once more then set Call Lightning. Once the Hatchling goes down flip into Bling. Pop Inflation and it should take 2 of the three rounds and kill Syd the Squid. When Mr. Pointy comes in, the last pulse of inflation should put the damage increase debuff onto him before shield. From here, use Rocket and hit him for 1.6k. When Chick Filet's message board mascot comes in, reset the rocket then use Extra Plating. Now re up Inflation, and when it ends, pop Rocket one last time. GG Otto!

****Warlords of Draenor Grand Masters****

Team: Lil' Xt, and Pocket Reaver

Start with Tympanic Tantrum. It automates for three rounds so just let it resolve. Switch to Zap, and when his racial activates, make the switch to the Pocket Reaver. Once in play, start with his Quake. Its another three round automation. WHen its over, use Fel Immolate, then Thrash to finish the round. With the third dog in play, re up the Fel Immolate or re use quake, decide what's the most damage depending on how much life is left with the last dog. I like Fel Flame because even if they both die, it will tick while plushie lasts the few rounds out!

Gargra Video :

Team: Sunreaver Microsentry, Emerald Protowhelp

Start with Sunreaver. Pick anything because your going to be stunned from Counterspell, so when its over then use Extra Plating. Then choose Supercharge. When the cocoon comes down, hit Laser. Then its just laser spam till he goes down. If you feel Sunreaver wont make the next round, just use this pet to re up your Extra Plating, then kill him and move into the next pet. Keep super charge and laser up and dps down the second moth. Try to ride out the Sunreaver into the third pet. If you can't, when the Emerald Protowhelp comes in, start with Emerald Presence. The trick here is to use Proto-Strike to negate the Moth Ball damage. So if its cooling down, then get into the air with protostrike to avoid it, if not, hit presence. Its really just Emerald Bite spam until she GETS OWNED!!

Taralune Video:

Tarr the Terrible
Team: Unborn Val'kyr, Blighthawk

Start with the Val'kyr and use Haunt. The damage is going to tick off when the murloc switches into the rear. On the switch, choose Blighthawk. When he comes into play, you have a few choices. I like to start with Infected Claw. Once I swipe a time or two and he gets in range, switch to Ghostly Bite. If somehow he lasts to start Deep Breath, you can use Lift-off to negate the incoming damage on the round it resolves. From there just keep up claw spam. On the third gladiator, he's going to use a variation of leap, so have Lift off ready to meet it. When he comes down just use whatever isn't on cool down. If Blighthawk goes down, swap back to the Val'kyr. She should be good to go with Shadow Slash spam to finish it out.

Tarr the Terrible video:

Team: Emerald Proto-Whelp, and Chi-Chi, Hatchling of Chi-Ji

Start with the Whelp. Use Emerald Presence, then Proto-strke. Once it resolves, spam Emerald Bite. When the mechanical comes in, swap to Chi-Chi. The key here is timing Ethereal to Feathered Frenzy. After he casts it, get Tranquility up. Then its Fire Quills spam until he goes down. Try to be near full health when Darkwing comes in, he hits VERY hard. Once he's in, he will amp his damage with Anzu's Blessing. So attack with quills. His next move is Shadow Talon so use Ethereal to negate it. From here, he may heal so just keep spamming quills. This is a DPS race. Chi-Chi can usually burn him right down.

Cymre Brightblade

Team: Anubisath Idol, Pandaren Mechanical Dragonling

Start with Anubisath. The key here is timing Deflection with Rot. There both on the same cool down timer and Deflection always goes first. From there, pop Stoneskin, then Crush spam. Make sure when Rot comes off cool down, you time Deflection to it. Even if you miss the end of the round and cause Dark Rebirth to resolve, you can just continue to negate the damage. When Wishbright Lantern joins in, swap to the Dragonling. Start with Decoy, then spam breath. This is a DPS race to beat Wish from resolving. When he's down, Either ride out the Dragonling or swap to Anubisath. Either way, you want to time Deflection to the second use of Rocket. And keep Stoneskin up. The only time I avoid recasting stoneskin is when he's low and I can get him under Repair's resolution.

Cymre Brightblade Video:


Team: Emerald Proto-Whelp

Start with Emerald Presence, from there use Proto-Strike. As he's using Arcane Blast, its just Breath spam until he's dead. Once he's down as Doodle comes in, make sure you re up your Emerald Presence. Once she swaps to Tally, the essence will negate the stampede damage, so Breath spam for two, then as its about to run out, pop Proto-strike so you negate the Headbutt damage. From here is should be free reign on the plushie to do what ever you want! HELLA easy!

****Pandaren Spirits****

Burning Pandaren Fire Spirit

Team: Anubusath Idol, Crow - Anubisath solo's the fight

Start with Crush, useStoneskin as he goes into the air, then pop Deflection as he comes down. From there its a simple crush spam until he's dead. When the fire spirit comes into play, use Deflection on either the Conflagerate or the Immolation. I think the Conflagerate hits harder, so its up to you. As a humanoid, Anubisath will generate health from any ticking damage you receive with the Stoneskin up. Either way, theres a two round period where Fire Spirit just stands there waiting for cool downs. So just Crush spam, avoiding one of the abilities. Once Fire spirits down, and the wasp comes into play, you can pet swap safely here. It will set a debuff for a few rounds that wont hurt it much. I prefer to get deflection up for one of them, but if Stoneskin is running low, then re up that instead. it completely negates the damage from swarm over the next few rounds. With Anubusath back in play, just Crush spam until its dead, an easy win!

Burning Pandaren Fire Spirit Video :

Whispering Pandarian Spirit

Team: Emerald Proto-Whelp

Start with Emerald Bite to get a little damage in. The next move will be Cocoon Strike, so use the time to swap a pet if you need to level it or let it ride, your choice. Once the whelp is back in play, use Bite once more, then Ancient Blessing. Once the debuff it applies is up, use Emerald Dream to get to full then take Dusty down.
When the next pet swaps in, use Emerald Bite if your racial is up to do more damage, if not then just Bite spam if your life is above half. This is just a balance of keeping your life up and bite spamming. When the dragon is down and the Air Spirit comes in she will buff herself and start healing, so look to get yourself up to full also with dream. Now its just rinse and repeat between bite and blessing. SOLO OWNED!!

Whispering Pandarian Spirit Video:

Pandaren Water Spirit

Team: Anubusath Idol, Crow

Start with the Crow's Darkness. This will mitigate a lot of the healing happening in this fight. Follow it up with Nocturnal Strike. From here, spam Alpha Strike until Marley is down. When Tiptoe enters, if its off cool down re use Nocturnal Strike. If not, re up Darkness or whatever isn't on cool down. When the crow goes down, swap to Anubusath. Get his Stoneskin up and hold Deflection until you see 1 round left on Whirlpool and Geyser. This will completely negate all damage from the round. If you need to level a pet, swap them in in the first round the Water Spirit enters, then back out to Anubisath. She starts the round with Whirlpool then Geyser, so you have time to set up. From here just time Deflection to the debuff's popping off. If its off time as the fight goes on, deflect the geyser as it stuns. GG Water Spirit!

Thundering Pandaren Spirit:

Team: Pandaren Mechanical Dragonling, Emerald Proto-whelp, Elekk Plushie

Start with the mechanical dragons Decoy, swap to the protowhelp. Start with breath x2, then Ancient Blessing, then Emerald Dream. As your going to spend a lot of time stunned and frozen, might as well heal thru it. Keep Breathspamming, and always be in Emerald Presence when theres 1 round left on his Crystal Prison and Rupture. You can ride the round out to give max health to the whelp, it will help in the end. Once the Earth Spirit goes down, swap out to the Plushie, she can soak the first Expunge, then swap out into the pandaren dragonling. hold the decoy for the rat, just breath spam here until Sludgy is down. When the rat comes in use Breath x2, then on the burrow, pop Decoy. From there breath spam as much as you can until the dragonling goes down or you win. If the dragonling dies, grab the whelp and decide weather to heal or attack, either way its GG! Plushie Pandaren Spirits section - ACHIEVED!

Thundering Pandaren Spirit Video Guide:

************ Celestial Tournament **************


Team: Pterrodax Hatchling, Pandaren Mechanical Dragonling, and The Elekk Plushie

Start the round with Pterrodax and Lift-off. Once resolved, spam Slicing Wind until carpe is down. Use Ancient Blessing to regain health before the switch into the Dragonling. When you bring him in, pop Decoy, then its breath spam untill Spirrus uses Soul Ward, Use Thunderboltto set some damage on the rear pets when you can to remove the ward. Then just rinse and repeat until River enters. When he does, he's gonna start with some maintenance by using whirlpool then diving, so your decoy should be up. If you had to swap to the Pterrodax, then use lift off to negate the resolution of whirlpool and the dive. from there keep ancient Blessing on cool down and span slicing winds. An easy win!

Wisemari Video Guide:


Team: Jademist Dancer, Teroclaw Hatchling

Start with Acid Rain from the dancer. Use Rain Dance for 2 rounds of + critical strike and a heal. Now spam Steam Vent until Au is down. When Banks comes in, try to get another use of Rain Dance, it persists thru death into the next pet so sometimes you can get strong hits with the pet switched in. Once the dancer is down, swap to Teroclaw. Get Natures Ward up, and dodge if you like but I just spammed Claw to keep the DPS up on banks. When Banks goes down and Lil' B comes in, reup your Natures ward, and spam Claw. Im not sure, but I believe everytime I used dodge on Gift Package he healed because it didn't connect. So the call is yours. Either way, spam claw to glad!

Blingtron Video guide:

Shademaster Kiryn

Team: Harbinger of Flame, Son of Animus, your plushie =)

Start with harbinger use Immolate, then Conflagrate. Once its ticking, spam Burn till he goes down. Save the next conflag for Stormoen. When he enters, use immolate then conflagrate again. this will kill him, when his racial pops and he returns, swap into the plushie to soak any other damage for that round. when stormoen is finaly killed, swap out of the plushie into anumus. Get Extra Plating up ASAP, then Siphon Anima to recover some life. Then just spam Metal Fist to glad =).

Shademaster Kiryn Video Guide:

Loremaster Cho

Team: Spawn of Onyxia, Flayer Youngling S/S

Start with Spawn and use Lift-Off. When it resolves, use Tail Sweep. Before you kill Wisdom, be sure to get Healing Flame off to be as high in life as you can for the Broom. When it comes into play, use Lift-off again. After it resolves, get healing flame up again and then spam tail sweep untill either pet goes down. IF you have to swap in the flayer, do so, but leave deflection available. You wont use kick untill the dragon comes in play anyway. Once the broom is down and Knowledge rotates in, he will strat with Amplify Magic, so attack with Blitz. For his next attack use either deflection or kick, which ever isn't on CD. afterwards, use which ever you didn't. The idea is to bounce between Kick and Deflection to negate the two rounds of amplify magic he applies. Spam Blitz for the win!

Lorewalker cho Video guide:

Dr. Ion Goldbloom

Team: Nordrasil Wisp and Iron Starlette

Start with Soul Ward, this will negate the resolution of screamers Lift-off. Use Flash followed by Light. This sets a 2 round -50 hit chance for two rounds against you and does hella damage! When he drops below 50%, he will use Feign Death. So knowing he's going to use it, swap to the starlette. Once Trike comes in, start with Wind-Up. Afterwards, try to use Supercharge. If you use it great, If you get stunned, no big deal. Just use it again. One way or another your getting it off. After its up use windup again and drop 2.4k on Trikes face. When Screamer swaps back in use Toxic Smoke, then wnd up twice. With both pets down in comes Chaos. He will usually kill the starlette so when he does just swap into the Wisp. Start with ward, then flash then light. Keep cycling them in that order, and pass when you can do nothing. This method will completely negate the damage from Instability giving it a ZERO % chance to connect =).

Dr. Ion Goldbloom Video Guide:

Sully the Pickle Mcleary

Team: Mud Jumper or Swamp Croaker and Teroclaw Hatchling and plushie

Start with the frogs Bubble, then Tongue Lash. Nest is Swarm of Flies. From here spam lash until Socks triggers his racial. When he does, swap in the Plushie to soak whatever damage he dishes. When Monte swaps in, swap to Teroclaw. Use Dodge first, when Burrow resolves, use Alpha Strike twice, use Ravage next as that should kill the rabbit and heal your hatchling on the kill. When monte is dead, swap back to the frog. Get bubble up and flies ticking. when the frog goes down, swap to Teroclaw. Start with dodge, you want to keep the racial advantage of going first. from there just alpha strike spam keeping dodge on CD. Should be an easy win by that point!

Sully the Pickle Mcleary Video Guide:

Taran Zhu

Team: Crystal Spider B/B and Crow S/S

Start with the spider and use Crystal Prison. This ability will allow us to control the tempo and pet order we want to battle. When Li swaps in, use Brittle Webbing and then Leech Life. This will feel a bit slow, but we will recoup a lot of health thru the rounds, and in the end kill him. So just bounce between those two abilities, keeping prison ready when he goes down to force Yen back out and Bolo in. When Yen enters, you should have your immunity to stuns up still, so its a wasted round for him. Get a little bit of damage on him with webbing then life with leech. Afterwards, use the prison to force Bolo in. After the prison resolves, use the time to swap in the crow. Start with Darkness, then pop Nocturnal Strike. then spam Alpha Strike until he Blinds, Swap to the plushie to soak, then back into the crow. Once the crow is back in, it should be around long enough to use another darkness and nocturnal strike. If not, the Spider with webbing up and leech should do just fine. Either way when hes down and Yen comes in, he will try to evade with Feign Death when he drops below half life. So wait till after that for prison. From here, its just bouncing between web and leech for the win!

Taran Zhu Video Guide:


Team: Elfin Rabbit B/B and Flayer Youngling S/S

Start with the rabbit and use Burrow. Once it resolves pop Dodge. This will evade inc damage for the next round. Watch the round counter on Ice Tomb. Once it has 1 left, that's when you use dodge. So pretty much your just gonna spam Flurry keeping dodge ready for Ice tomb and burrow on CD. When the rabbit is dead swap to the Flayer. Depending on how close to death the first dragon is, save kick for the next. When you first enter the round with Alex, use Kick, then deflection on an ability that isn't Ancient Blessing. Spam Blitz until hes down. When Dahda enters, use Kick. Get some blitz damage in until he casts Elementium Bolt. Save Deflection for bolt. When the bolt has 1 round left on it, use Deflection. Once it resolves, just keep him stun locked and Blitz spam. An easy win!

Wrathion Video Strategy:

Chen Stormstout

Team: Skybo and Teroclaw

Start with Skybo and use Sticky Grenade. Afterwards, pop Flamethrower then Launch. This will negate inc damage from Chew and Bite. Once Launch resolves, so will grenade. If it hasn't killed him, pop flamethrower once more! When Tonsa is down and Chirps enters she will cast Lullaby. There's nothing we can do so swap into Teroclaw once she sets you to sleep. With teroclaw in place, pop dodge, then spam Alpha Strike twice. This should get her into Ravage kill range to heal you back to full. With two down and only Brewly left, an easy win awaits! Dodge should be up by now. Use it to avoid the 4 round -25 hit debuff from Inebriate. With your health over half and racial up, spam Alpha Strike, when you drop below, use ravage. If she dies, swap back to Skybo and finish it with flamethrower spam or Launch. GG!

Just finished this weeks rounds of Taran Zhu, Wrathion, and chen. I'll be editing the guide for the vids and strats in a bit. For taran I used a Crsytal Spider B/B to force the swaps and an S/S Crow. For Wrathion I used the same strat as the first tourney I did, ELfin Rabbit B/B and a Flayer Youngling S/S. For Chen I wrapped it up with Skybo and Teroclaw.
