1. While battling, always - always, always, always - have your Pet Battle Combat Log open
2. Use addons that show opponent cooldowns
Yes it does. The recommendation of Yellow Moth as P/P came from previous expansions, however it's still a great choice of breed on it as I believe it's still the only moth with that moveset that comes in P/P.
The moth's, I can not speak for them much, as I would use different moths, like Flaming, the two from the Timeless Isle and the like, for a variation, rather than have two of them of the same kind, even though I think that I do have several of them, like the Ashwing one from Timeless Isle

So the yellow moth at p/p isn't as viable now? Should I catch more moths? What makes moths in general such good pets?
Arkindal wrote:As for your tip about making my own tactics, today I had the quest "All growl no bite", or something like that, where I had to defeat an epic Chrominius, I tried to come up with my own tactic. The guy ignores any move that does more than X damage, so I used Stormwing with lift-off and flock, Ikky with black claw and flock and Zandalari Anklerender, with blackclaw and hunting party.
I used lift-off to dodge the surge of power, in the end I only used Stormwing and Ikky, the raptor wasn't needed and Ikky had barely a scratch. Thinking about it, I probably could've used a slightly different combo.
Anubisath idol with 1/1/1, starting with sandstorm to mitigate the damage taken, deflection to soak the first surge of power, and then going on with the anklerender, switching back to the idol when it was time to soak. I'll try it next time.

I absolutely recommend trying something different next time. Now that you found something that works, see what other combos you can come up with and then see how they compare to what worked previously. Last time I did that same quest, I tabbed to a different window and came back to find I'd already won the battle while I was staring at something else - good ol Zandalari Raptors!
The reason you don't see people favoring speed over health or power with fliers is their racial boosts their speed while above 50% health. So going with something like a H/P over a P/S is in a roundabout way boosting the speed as well, for moves like Alpha Strike.
