Ive finally gotten ahold of an S/S breed Ore Eater
after hearing of how good the breed is.
After trying it out, I must say im quite pleasantly suprised with how tough it is, despite its slightly lower than average hp. Having a consistent ability to nearly always getting Shell Shield
off before your opponent makes their move thanks to its 341 speed, is absolutely incredible. As it absorbs a lot of damage, even on an S/S breed for 3 turns. A 204 damage reduction, which also completely nulls the blowback damage from Body Slam
The shell shield combined with the humanoid racial, means it actually can last for quite a while. I had overlooked the pet at first glance, as I thought it was just a standard shield spell alike Stoneshield
that only reduces like 70ish.
The Ore Eater is for sure one of the more annoying pets to aquire in WoD, due to triple rng involved. First you have to be lucky to get a Goren Protector to spawn when mining, then he actually have to drop the pet. Finally you have to get lucky with the breed as well, as it have five different breeds. 3 mixed ones and 2 pures.
