On a similar situation, it took me something like 6 tries to get Skrillix down ... and the real issue was not him, but the P/P Bloodbeak after it, which really hurts things, as the two pets left you have have taken AoE damage, and their hit points are reduced. AND, in this fight, the important part is the part that the Zandalari Anklerender plays, when he does a 2nd leap, which in essence clears the "BLOCK", and allows the Hunting Party to be effective. Without that 2nd clearing of the blocks, the fight is not going to happen, and you might as well close it out and start again. The ZA will have not a whole lot of Hit Points at that time, but it has enough to do a great job on Skillix.
These are the kinds of small details that often we miss and pass up, figuring that our big gun will do the job anyway.
In many ways, this is the secret to Feasel's fight as well, in that you have to pay attention to the small details, and see what is coming, so you know what to do at that moment. Without that knowledge, you are relying on an uncertain ability of your pet, that could easily be countered by the opponent, that instead of taking 750 points damage, takes only 250 ... and now you have a hard time finishing him down.
In this sense, the Pet Battles of the game, is far more intelligent than the game itself, and its details are much better used, although it would be very hard to discuss details within a raid fight, since there would be so many of them, but as an individual fight, this is the one thing that most of us Pet Battlers learn well along the way. A tool like Pet Tracker that shows the spells the opponent uses, helps this a lot. Any other tool that shows that also would help.
I highly recommend that so you can see that big bump coming, and how to be ready for it. In Skrillix fight, you also need to be able to use the Shield, on Anubisath, when Bloodbeak flies up ... without it, the fight is over! AND, remember that Bloodbeak was (in this case) a BLUE and P/P ... meaning, the most damage! And you thought that Skrillix was the problem ... and he isn't.
