Favorite WoD Pet

Postby Salus » March 6th, 2015, 12:30 am

So it's been a few months. I'm curious what new (post-WoD release) battle pet people are finding they use the most? Personally, I am finding myself leaning on tried and true combos without really exploring the new pets as much as I probably should. Please focus your comments on battling ability (not appearance).

S/S Bronze Whelpling, probably the overall strongest new pet in WoD in my opinion.

It's an almost unparalleled sweeper, having access to the dragonkin racial, and Crystal Prison at 325 speed. Both combined will let it double tap pets from 875HP to dead (Stun + 350 + 525) without letting your opponent act. That HP threshold is a real game changer, because suddenly you have to play around the fact that any pet under 875HP facing the whelpling is as good as dead. To put it another way, your pets 'die' at 875 HP instead of 0 HP.

There are practically no other pets with so much control and damage in one package, and if that wasn't enough it has Lift-Off as well which at 325 speed it can make good use of as a juke/evasion move. Very scary pet to deal with at the late stages of a match, especially if you're swap happy and have a lineup of half-dead pets.

Teroclaw Hatchling. Evasion and healing can ensure lengthy use of Flying. Elemental conversion counters most Mechs and removes Magic weakness. Even on such a slow Flying pet Alpha Strike is always a viable option due to backrow healing although you could opt for the always-handy Claw instead.

Absolutely pleased with Servant of Demidos, though of late I keep using Fragment of Anger more and more. Spiritfire Beam is a killer move on an opening pet.

Ore Eater. Hands down. 341 speed. Reduces over 200 damage per attack. Has a dot and humanoid racial, so he heals in the back row. Can go toe to toe with most anything, and absolutely destroys elementals and dragons

Hrm, thats actually a pretty good reason for using the slot 1 dot.

I personally modified one of Disco teams with an:
S/S Ore Eater
H/H Ghastly Kid
S/S Bronze Whelpling

Should come as no surprise that probably the two best pets in WoD (Whelp and OE) combine for an extremely potent combination. Though I agree when Graves appears it will be extremely powerful either in the aforementioned team as a replacement for the Kid or anyone with a Murkalot will have joyous celebration.

But to answer the OP it is currently a tie between the Bronze Whelpling and Ore Eater.

I also pair my Ore Eater with the Ghastly Kid. Third pet varies depending on what I'm seeing a lot of. Ghastly Kid deserves an honorable mention in this category. He's not the overwhelming superstar like the ore eater or whelp, but he's a great auxiliary to a whole lot of teams

I haven't done much outside of tamers or menagerie. For battling, I've got lots of fun with my PP Starlette. For the looks, it's Sentinel's Companion, because I'm into nightelfish style and I've got a spirit beast that looks the same.

Teroclaw Hatchling possibly. But there are many strong WoD pets.

Nexus Whelpling P/P

Yeah, I know it wasn't released with wod, but since they got rid of the retarded hit thing it changed this pet so much, it feels like a brand new one to me.
What do you do with a pen that only works 90% of the time?

Hiya
I have a p/p and an s/s ore eater. In PvP, I often like the p/p along with a Dazzling dance pet ..these pets can often Flurry undead and the Ore eater's extra power goes a long way...the p/b Alpine Foxling is my favorite.

I like the Sister of temptation...p/b or s/b..either do fine..it has a great skill set with group healing/stun and strong vs humanoid attacks..very useful and tanky

Oh... so... many... answers. I really like most of the pets already listed here: I have a S/B and P/P Ore Eater, both of whom can be very strong for reasons already stated; the S/S Bronze Whelpling is such a durable sweeper with the stun and the avoid; the Teroclaw Hatchling just keeps on living on; the Servant of Demidos often stuns and kills pets before your opponent has time to blink; and my S/B Sister of Temptation is surprisingly tanky for a lady in such skimpy clothing.

However, of the pets no one mentioned yet, for me it's a tie between the Lovebird Hatchling and the Frostwolf Ghostpup. The Hatchling has a stun, and with 325 speed can often make use of the extra damage attack in slot 1, and Predatory Strike has won me a couple of close pvp battles lately. The Ghostpup has a nice AoE heal, a spammable attack which is strong against Undead which you see so many of in the pvp queue, and a nice nuke for when you really need it.

This is mostly for pvp purposes though. For carrying pets against the trainers, I just use the setups I had prior to WoD, since, you know, why change something that works?

Son of Sethe is a great tank, with 3 self heals attacks, and the undead racial it taks some hits to kill him.

Got a new pet two days ago, and it definitely deserves a mention here!!

The H/H Bone Serpent is an absolute beast in PvP. 1600+ health, 309 power, and he's carrying a barrage and two nukes (including a weather change). Decoy, bubble, and single hit evasion abilities are ineffective against him, and he absolutely decimates dragons, humans, and his archenemy aquatics. Obviously he's slow, but thanks to undead racial, its not a problem. The only problem is that his move set causes an eventual lockout with all attacks on CD. Not really an issue if you pair him with a decent tank pet for the stall.

Unfortunately, he's kind of difficult to get since you need lucky RNG. First you've got to have the traveling tamer or know someone who does. Then you have to be lucky enough to get a pet in your bag. Then you have to get lucky on WHICH pet. And then you have to get lucky on breed

P/P Axebeak Hatchling, Servant of Demidos and s/s bronze whelp has impressed me greatly
