With the new dmg penalty from forfeiting battles to force the trainer to give you the needed first pet, and the nerf to fluxfire feline
, I have been at work trying to find a team for every highlevel trainer where you can have 2 lvl 25 pets and 1 lowlvl pet for leveling, and where you can take down the trainer no matter which pet the trainer starts with.
In this little adventure of mine, I have found that Infinite whelpling
(breed 4) is very interesting indeed.
Apart from it being a very solid pet in general with its healing flame
and high damage abilities tail sweep
and early advantage
, it has a very nice synergy with the dragonkin racial giving +50 % dmg when bringing an opponent below 25 % hp. Nothing new here, but I stumbled upon something I hadn't really considered before, although it's really a no-brainer:
Being a solid pet, it dishes out high dmg and can heal itself back up pretty decently. The first trainer-pet is often easy, which gives the infinite whelpling
a great dmg-bonus to the next opponent due to the dragonkin racial. If this second pet is a mechanical (which often is a pain because of the high damage abilities of such mechanical pets), then you are in for a treat!
1) Dragonkin racial bonus +50 % dmg
2) early advantage
deals extra dmg vs mechanical pets.
3) Your infinite whelpling
will probably have low enough hp from fighting the first pet, that you get the extra hit from early advantageResult:
2x850-ish dmg (without crit), oneshotting or almost oneshotting the mechanical opponent. Example 1:
Major Payne (killing Grizzle is easy), oneshotting Beakmaster (that was a very
satisfying thing to see happen, and I was a bit flabbergasted to see all his HP disappear in a 2x850-ish hits). Just finish Beakmaster up with a tail sweep
, or let another pet such as spawn of onyxia
(breed 4) finish him and the last pet.Example 2:
Jeremy Feasel also works, but you "only" bring Honky Tonk down to about 200 hp left doing this.
Another question is whether I find a very reliable team combination to finish the enemy team off no matter which pet they start with. But this was an interesting find for me anyway.
