Crusher team suggestions please

Postby Logansfury » May 31st, 2016, 9:55 pm

Ive been running into a lot of Teroclaw Hatchlings and ive read that Crusher is a good counter but cant find any posted team.

With a nerf to Shell Armor coming, id like to enjoy this guy while I can before he slides out of first tier.

Can anyone offer good synergy teams featuring Crusher please?

I'm curious, why Crusher rather than Ore Eater?

Good Morning Biscuit,

Ive a PP variety Crusher and understand he has the strongest Shell Armor absorb at 333 power, plus he has 1441 health compared to Ore Eater's 1359 health/317 power

Just looking better on paper to me.

I do have an SS Ore Eater, and dont mind seeking out any breed of either pet for a viable team.

Found an Immolation team featuring SS Ore Eater, its already logging wins :)

Ill give it a shot with PP Crusher in place of SS Ore Eater and see how it performs.

They're both very good and viable in most situations.

I think the S/S Ore Eater stands out however due to his speed.
Being faster than a Fiendish Imp let alone alllll the 325 speed pets out there is a huge boon.
You want the option of throwing out poison (which is essentially a DoT AND a HoT thanks to the human racial) or immediately going into Shell Armor first, regardless of what your opponent does.

For 4 straight rounds he's an absolute beast.
Pair him with pets like Scalded Basilisk or Ghadtly Kid who have free swap abilities.
You'll constant be swapping the Ore Eater in and out and his poison allows him to heal on the backline.

This is all good fun...until Graves shows up.

Lately, I've been running S/S Ore Eater, S/S Fiendish Imp & P/P Curious Wolvar Pup.
3 humanoids, I know. Sounds like a bad idea.
I run this team and if I ever meet Graves or Weebomb, I just flee and queue up again.
If you purposely avoid undead AOE teams, it's a very very strong group of pets.

Why is everything all good fun until Graves shows up?? lol

I see your logic and ill prioritize SS Ore Eater over PP Crusher in team builds. Thank you very much for the info!

I appreciate you posting the example team. That looks fun to play and ill be sure to save the team and practice with it over the next few days.

I've never been a big Crushed user, but one of my all time favorite teams was built around the SS Ore Eater.

Bone Serpent
Ghastly Kid
Ore Eater

I actually earned about 1/3 of my total wins with this team (although most were pre-Graves).

I usually open with the Ore Eater. Once his shield expires, just swap him out for the Kid, Haunt, and then bring the Ore Eater back right on time to refresh his shield, then just start back at the beginning. Acid Touch is critical as a dot and Hot. Bone Serpent usually bats cleanup. If you run into Graves repeatedly, just swap out the serpent for any of the Lamb pets. They eat Graves alive

You should try for the fun of it:

Ore Eater S/S
Teroclaw Hatchling
Frostwolf Ghostpup

Picking the right starter pet and swapping smartly is key.
Don't be afraid to eat a Haunt with the Ore Eater if your shield is of cool down.
Apply his DoT/HoT before back lining him. Heal him up some more with Haunting Song.
There's a bad moon on the rise over Gilneas
