Graves is back in town :D

Postby Wootzy » November 8th, 2016, 1:05 pm

Try out my pvp team for a few battles if you like: ;)

Slot 1: Wicked Soul S/S - Ghostly Bite, Haunting Song, Haunt
slot 2: Graves - Skull Toss, Gr.Destruction, Consume Corps
slot 3: Court Scribe - Arcane Blast, Consume Magic, Arcane Storm
(Strong third pet is Teroclaw, but that's no fun) :P

I like starting with Wicked Soul and directly haunt into Court Scribe.
But I open with Court Scribe if wisely (against Ghastly Kid and Teroclaw).
You can also soak big damage, cleanse away dots, stall, anti stun set up, sacrifice etc.
Wicked Soul is my favorite Legion pet so far, and he works so well with Graves against Imps.
Any suggestions? Tell me what you think guys!

Cheers :)

Having fun also with this versatile Ruby Droplet team:

Ruby Droplet (acid touch, bubble, drain blood)
Wicked Soul
Teroclaw Hatchling
Flamering Moth (alpha strike, healing flame, moth dust)

:D

You got that emote the wrong way. :P

Graves is back in town :( I truly detest the Haunt/Consume mechanism.

I'm starting to think that the Wicked Soul is just a better option than the Kid. Obviously against the Imp, but even against other openers. You like Ghastly Bite? I'd be a bit afraid of getting CD locked. And if you are using the Court Scribe, you cover some of the Kid's strengths where the Soul is weaker. I don't have that one yet. Sounds like a nice team.

Flamering Moth is a personal favourite of mine. I don't really play the Ruby Droplet. You swap to the Droplet for a stall after Haunting?

I've always considered this a bug that just never got fixed.
You should only be able to consume ONE corpse ONE time.

Thanks for your reaction guys :)
I like sharing strong pvp teams because we need more pet battlers, and an even playing field.

With the first team I manage to use consume corps 3 or 4 times in a battle (haunting song helps here too). Just don't be afraid to swap out graves and don't let his health drop low (graves is your finisher). Do not go toe to toe with wicked soul against ghastly kid. I like both haunting pets but for me wicked soul holds the edge atm (speed!). I'm experimenting with dread hatching for a second consume corps pet. :P

The second team with ruby droplet is there to handle iron starlet, bone serpent, unborn valk, ghastly kid, nexus etc. He's very tanky with bubble and drain blood. Acid touch is a strong dot against teroclaw. A much underrated pet if you ask me. He can stall and take on any pet, even aquatics. It's a pet harder to play correct, like back lining him with bubble up, for a dodge the next time you bring him in. Paired with wicked soul and teroclaw you have control and dictate the battle. Don't rush for a win but swap, keep your dots/heals up and play smart with patience. ;)

So...what's your allround pvp team(s)?

EDIT: ruby droplet also works wonders in a darkness team with nightshade and bones!

So..if you ask me S/S Wicked Soul, Haunting Song and Haunt is a big danger (that, and Teroclaw).
How do we counter it? I'm expecting more Ghastly Kids with Consume Magic running around (makes it even worse).
What else is there? :?:

Darkness team with Frostfur Rat might cause some trouble.

Easy with a Magical Crawdad, it soaks up the haunt because of being aquatic and gives a rats ass about undead damage plus Surge is awsome against Terrowclaw :D

Crawdad wouldn't win. It's a stalemate.
With wish on one side and infinite consume corpse on the other, you'd go on indefinitely.
I know cause it happened to me the other day.

Very true, but you can't win against sunny day with these haunting teams.
As you can see in the score I counted them as a loss. So indeed a counter.. sort of. :?

Darkness teams are my ol' favs 8-)

Yes you might win, or not. But pls lets not start with the Bone Serpent again :|

Here's a surprise Refuge team with the rat:
Lovebird Hatchling, Frostwolf Ghostpup, Frostfur Rat
Sneaky :mrgreen:

If only the new Blind Rat with Lullaby was as fast.. (looking at you Imp)

No the consume corpse team would lose because the Soul can only haunt as long as its alive and thanks to surge it would die, thus its no indefinite consume corpse, thus it lose and THIS is the key to beat these teams by outlasting them :)
I know cause I regulary beat these kind of teams with DAH, Anubis and my Crawdad :D
