Best pet vs Flying?

Postby Griffiths1999 » March 20th, 2013, 2:01 pm

I've tried many different ones, but none seem to great. I mostly use Kirin Tor, and 2 different slimes. Any suggestions?

Try a Sprite Darter Hatchling or Nether Faerie Dragon. Both have abilities that are strong against flying, and flying attacks are weak against them.

Emerald proto whelp, especially P/P breed, is particularly good against fliers. It takes less damage from flying attacks as it's a dragon and it has Emerald Bite which is strong against fliers. It's shield and Emerald Dream heal are really, really good too.

Heh, Emerald Proto-Whelp is an end-all answer. =P I like crabs against them, too; even though they're weak against the flyer's.

EPW for sure. Great shield, best heal in the game (imho) and strong attack. What's not to love? I even went and got a second P/P one... they are that good.

Celestial dragon tears through flying pets too.

Any of the magic attack dragons I'd think. Azure whelp, Tarecgosa, Nexus whelp, and the ones that have been mentioned.

Lil' Tarecgosa: 4 x Arcane Blast deals cca 1900 damage to a flyer (without any other modifications)
Emerald Proto-Whelp P/P: 4 x Emerald Bite deals cca 2150 dmg. It is a bit slower and has a lot less HP than Tarecgosa and has great survivability toolkit.
Nexus Whelpling P/P: Wild Magic + Mana surge deals cca 1900 damage in 4 rounds. Has same stats as proto-whelp.
Azure Whelpling Wild Magic + Surge of Power deals 1350 damage in 4 rounds.
Netherwhelp: Soulrush + 3 x Nether Blast deals cca 2000 dmg. Very fast pet.
Sprite Darter Hatchling/ Nether Fearie Dragon S/S: Moonfire + 3 x Arcane Blast deals cca 2000 dmg. Very fast pet
Nether Fearie Dragon P/P: Moonfire + 2 x Arcane Blast deals 1720 dmg.
Nether Fearie Dragon P/P: Moonfire + 3 x Arcane Blast deals 2450 dmg.

Personally I would go with fast Nether Faerie Dragon as it is most available and will let the opponent strike just 3 times (it is identical to rare drop Sprite Darter Hatchling). Or if you look for some avoidance and self healing, go with Emerald Proto-Whelp P/P. This may be a bit harder to come by on CRZ realms

Chrominius is quite good against flyers and can 2 shot many of them with his double damage debuff and power surge attack.

So I was finally able to get Sprite Darter Hatchling off the AH for a decent price. Such a great pet. Found another good use for him. His Life Exchange move is amazing vs the Legendary aqua pets. Can just about solo them all with Sprite alone.
