Be sure to check out this month's feature on the Elwynn Lamb
!How Do You Use Your Elwynn Lamb?
The Elwynn Lamb
, like most other pets with that Stampede
mojo, is a stellar pick against big bosses. Try a buddy with an additive buff, like a raptor with Exposed Wound
. A big asset of the Lamb is that Chew can hit from the back row, so if you're starting to get low after that Stampede you can Chew
and then swap to keep your pet safe but still deal that damage. That Stampede can make timing a bit of a dice throw sometimes however, as the Lamb can't counter anything thrown its way while it's stampeding.
Personally, unless there's something very specific I have in mind I usually choose Comeback
. Soothe doesn't work immediately so it can be very tricky to time for interrupts. Though I can use Soothe to set up some cool combos and stall while I wait on cooldowns, I prefer having the option of a filler move in my pocket more than that versatility.
I use my Elwynn Lamb in Pandaria pretty frequently to take out the Beasts of Fable. It does have some use against the Tiny Terrors of Tanaan, but what the Lamb brings in DPS it usually lacks in longevity. The Beasts usually don't hit my poor Lamb as hard as the Terrors, so I can use those combos a couple times.
There are three other pets which have moves that mirror the Elwynn Lamb exactly. The Summit Kid
is likely the easiest to obtain, as an easy find all around Kun-Lai Summit. The other two options are quite a bit easier to find as Alliance than Horde. The Little Black Ram
is relatively common around Loch Modan, but the Black Lamb can be a bit of a hassle to find in Elwynn Forest.
The Black Lamb has the most breed options, including a Power/Speed hybrid. Both Lambs are classified as Critters, but the Kid and Ram are Beasts, which gives us a few more options for PVE counters. While the Lamb may not be such a great pick to counter, say, Kafi, the Kid could maybe enter the fray instead.
