Project Jungle Book - team creation advice please

Postby Logansfury » June 2nd, 2016, 8:17 pm

Good Evening,

Probably just the battle fatigue acting up again, but I got another idea (god help us all).

Not sure yet if its creative or just silly.

One of my all time favorite books is Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. The recent movie release obviously put this in my mind.

Ive gone thru my pets and selected as many as I could that seemed appropriate for named pets from the Book. Id like to now make a few viable teams (Jungle Book I, Jungle Book II, etc) from the pets on this list. Please advise on any synergy that looks good - I know theres much more talented team builders here than I!

Is there any pet other than Zao, Calfling of Niuzao, ingame now or coming in legion, that is a buffalo?

I need a good candidate for Rama the King of the buffaloes. Id rather not rename Zao, but until/unless I get a replacement, I will for sake of another strong pet on the list.

Jungle Book Pets:

Rama the King - Zao, Calfling of Niuzao (beast) PS
Bandar Log - Bananas (beast) BB
King Louie - Darkmoon Monkey (beast) PB
Shere Khan - Savage Cub (beast) PB
Mang the Bat - Tirisfal Batling (flying) HS
Baloo the Bear - Dun Morogh Cub (beast) HP
Kala Nag - Trunks (magic) HP
Hathi - Meadowstomper Calf (beast) PB
Pudmini - Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm (critter) HP
Sahi the Digger - Brown Praire Dog (critter) SS
Mor the Peacock - Golden Dawnfeather (flying) SS
Kaa - Death Adder Hatchling (beast) SS
Akela the Wolf - Tito (beast) PS
Chil the Kite - White Tickbird Hatchling (flying) SS
Bagheera - Panther Cub (beast) SS
Rikki Tikki Tavi - Kuitan Mongoose (aquatic) SS
Nag - Cobra Hatchling (beast) PS
Nagaina - Cobra Hatchling (beast) PS
Darzee - Tickbird Hatchling (flying) PS
Chuchundra - Golden Civet Kitten (aquatic) SS
Karait the Dusty - Brown Snake (beast) BB
Chua the Rat - Rat (critter) SS

OK so theres a list of 22 pets, 19 or 20 unique (note the identical pair of Cobra Hatchlings to use all book names)

If any alternate pets are stronger or have better synergy than any ive listed here, please let me know. Royal or Everbloom Peachick could be replacements for Golden Dawnfeather as Mor the Peacock. Rats are pretty much rats, Ghastly Rat might be a strong replacement, but I dont know that he fits the theme as an undead. I think ive used all of the only 3 elephant types? Did I miss one?

Thanks for reading, I hope this looks interesting to some of the community team-builders.

Peanut is the forgotten elephant. Identical moveset choices as HP Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm but HH breed with more health.

Can be considered part of the Jungle Book roster for team building.

Also need a hyena/jackal pet. Only one coming to mind is Hogs from DMF? That would help balance this beast heavy list a bit. Can anyone suggest a better jackal?

for now:

Jackal Tabaqui - Hogs (humanoid) HP

Ive found a 4th elephant name and another Wolf name, both for females (which wont fit all pets designated gender but oh well), so Peanut makes the rotation joined by Moon Moon!

I see this thread getting a decent number of views, if anyone is coming to any conclusions from the list please post! Im interested in any tested or untested theories and eagerly awaiting to see the community's ideas :)

Heres updated list with Peanut, Hogs, and 2nd wolf

Jungle Book pets:

Jackal Tabaqui - Hogs (humanoid) HP
Rama the King - Zao, Calfling of Niuzao (beast) PS
Bandar Log - Bananas (beast) BB
King Louie - Darkmoon Monkey (beast) PB
Shere Khan - Savage Cub (beast) PB
Mang the Bat - Tirisfal Batling (flying) HS
Baloo the Bear - Dun Morogh Cub (beast) HP
Kala Nag - Trunks (magic) HP
Hathi the Wild - Meadowstomper Calf (beast) PB
Pudmini - Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm (critter) HP
Radha Pyari - Peanut (critter) HH
Sahi the Digger - Brown Praire Dog (critter) SS
Mor the Peacock - Golden Dawnfeather (flying) SS
Kaa - Death Adder Hatchling (beast) SS
Akela the Wolf - Tito (beast) PS
Raksha the Demon - Moon Moon (beast) PP
Chil the Kite - White Tickbird Hatchling (flying) SS
Bagheera - Panther Cub (beast) SS
Rikki Tikki Tavi - Kuitan Mongoose (aquatic) SS
Nag - Cobra Hatchling (beast) PS
Nagaina - Cobra Hatchling (beast) PS
Darzee - Tickbird Hatchling (flying) PS
Chuchundra - Golden Civet Kitten (aquatic) SS
Karait the Dusty - Brown Snake (beast) BB
Chua the Rat - Rat (critter) SS

25 pets including 2nd Cobra Hatchling an extra elephant breed option, and unique moveset beast.

Please contribute team idea's if youve time!

Just found an exaustive list of Jungle Books names and added some very interesting pets. Theres some real options for teams now I think.

New Pets:

Oo the Turtle - Darkmoon Turtle (aquatic) HB
Porcupine Sahi - Porcupette (critter) HS <- Yes I know Vengful Porcupette is amazing, but he looks undead
Jacala the Croc - Snarly (aquatic) HP
Ko the Crow - Crow (flying) SS
Sea Catch - Sea Calf (aquatic) SB
Pappu the Panda Mountain Panda (beast) PS

31 pets now :)

My first ideas, not yet tested in the field:

Unforgettable

Trunks - Smash, Ethereal, Avalanche
Peanut - Smash, Trumpet Strike, Stampede
Meadowstomper Calf - Trample, Primal Cry, Headbutt

No real synergy, just 3 strong pets, 3 separate families, and a theme "Elephants Never Forget"

The Elephant's Dance

Trunks - When Elekks Fly, Moonfire, Avalanche
Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm - Smash, Trumpet Strike, Stampede
Meadowstomper Calf - Trample, Primal Cry, Headbutt

No synergy beyond Trunks' selfbuff of first strike with When Elekks Fly under Moonlight weather. The moveset fits the title, taken of course from The Jungle Book

Bear Necesities

Snarly - Rip, Surge, BitW
Dun Morogh Cub - Roar, Bash, Maul
Hogs - Vicious Slice, Consume Corpse, Maul

Bleed team. I think rot would go something like Snarly:Rip>Blood in the Water Cub:Bash>Roar>Maul Hogs:Maul>Vicious Slice repeat, Consume Corpse when necessary, Surge on Snarly for filler, Vicious Slice on Hogs for filler.

Wolves' Moon

Trunks - When Elekks Fly, Moonfire, Avalanche
Moon Moon - Moon Fang, Howl, Moon Tears
Golden Dawnfeather - Quills, Hawk Eye, Love Potion

synergy based on Moonlight weather condition, giving 25% heal buff to Moon Tears and Love Potion, 10% damage buff to When Elekks Fly, Moon Tears, and Moon Fang, and first strike buff to When Elekks Fly.

Thats my first pass at teams, ill try to test all four out in whatever time Darkmoon Faire plans allow.

I'll have to check those out!

I added a few more pets to the lineup:

Father Wolf - Worg Pup (beast) HH
Grey Brother - Moon Moon (beast) PS
Grey Sister - Moon Moon (beast) SS

Im surprised I havent seen anyone mention teams. I guess ive got just too many beasts in this group, but I did think more people would find the thread fun lol.
