Also, Shadow Talons changed from UD to Flying damage, so his slot 1 choices are both flying damage now. There's nothing to distinguish Dread Hatchling from a PP crow aside from the skin, and we should be able to get PP crows from breeding.

I'm just annoyed because the precedent so far is that CE pets are not top-tier PvP pets, but they do have interesting/unique moves and/or movesets. That seems like the ideal balance, since we don't want pay-to-play, but the CE should still give you something neat.
Dread Hatchling is the opposite of that. Crow is already a PvP staple, and now Hatchling will largely replace it for anyone who pays for the CE. But in the end it's just a crow, which is very boring.Luciandk wrote:With Call Darkness Id choose Peck as I find Shadow Talon too risky to use with 80% chance to hit.
Here's the relevant numbers:
Peck, 357 dmg 100% accuracy = 357 average dmg
Shadow Talon, 428 dmg 90% accuracy = 386 average dmg
Peck (under Darkness), 357 dmg 90% accuracy = 321 average dmg
Shadow Talon (under Darkness), 427 dmg 80% accuracy = 343 average dmg
Average damage probably isn't the most relevant though, since your damage is so front-loaded. Call Darkness is 536, Nocturnal Strike is 714, so your first two moves produce 1250 damage unless avoided. With Peck, you'd have a 90% chance to finish off any pet below 1600 health on turn 3; with Shadow Talon, it would be an 80% chance to finish off a pet below 1670 health.

Poofah wrote:Consume Corpse is also cute with Valk, obviously, but we already see that with Stitched Pup. And 3 turns of Howl-buffed Haunt is better damage than 4 turns of Anzu's-buffed Haunt (15 vs 10 base).
