Pet teams 101

Postby Korvo » December 14th, 2013, 10:07 pm

What you need to make a decent pet team.

1st Pet!
Your first pet should have a strong D.O.T spell with high damage attacks.
Type- Undead
Example Pet- unborn val'kyr

2nd Pet!
Your second pet should have stuns and a weather effect.
Type- Humanoid
Example pet- anubisath idol

3rd Pet!
Your third pet should be able to heal and reduce damage.
Type- Elemental
Example pet- blossoming ancient

These are my personal thoughts and suggestions.
Hope this helps.

I dont really think your team should NEED to have specific moves to win.

It just needs alot of synergy. Even if the pets aren't that good, if they have synergy that will generally win.

Take for example Infected Fawn and Son of Animus. You'd generally think "Oh, easy win."

Well, its actually not.
Touch of the Animus + Death and Decay/Flurry means you'll sure be getting some health!

This goes for all pets and teams. Having no synergy can really hurt you.

You also want to find if your team has a general family its weak to. Take for example this team:

Snarly
Scalded Basilisk Hatchling

What family is this team weak to? You guessed it! FLYING!

Snarly takes increased damage from it while the Basilisk's Thrash is weak against Flying AND is not able to get the additional hit from it's ability.
So you want to put a double counter. A double counter pet is a pet that can absolutely dominate a certain family. In this case, we want to dominate flying. So we pick the Emerald Proto-Whelp. The whelp can both do increased damage to flyers with its Emerald Bite but also takes reduced damage from flyers.

Just putting my 2 cents out there. I'm no expert, but I'd say I'm decently experienced as I have 833 PvP pet battle wins.

Not sure I'd use Anubisath Idol and Unborn Val'kyr together. Sandstorm and Haunt don't combine well.

So how many PVP battles have you won?
and do you even have an Anubisath Idol? Cause if you don't how can you opine on how it might play?

Going to second that part about synergy. I have a team based around the 'Chilled' effect and I've had some great success with (surprisingly). None of the three pets are really that special, but when you have three pets that can greatly benefit from that specific weather condition and two pets that can control the weather, you can actually compensate a lot for weak individual pets or even a lack of type variety.

The team I use right now is Ragnaros, Blossoming ancient and the unborn val-kyr.
I've only won 300pvp pet battles, sorry if the information im giving isn't helpful.
