I know it changed the Beasts of Fable fights but did they stealth buff the DMF pets? I'm having a MUCH harder time this month. I'd built a team that won except in rare bad luck situations and now I'm on my tenth attempt and feeling as frustrated as the BoF fights have made me.
I feel, if anything, it is easier because his pets have a higher miss rate than most other trainers. Missile 90% and Smash 85%. If you use a couple of Fel Flames or Searing Scorchlings they can easily counter the first 2 pets and work on the monkey a bit for the pet you want to get exp.
