I've just started using this website, so I thought I'd go ahead and see if some of you more experienced pet battles can give me some advice for my team.
I like to build themed teams. Either the same/similar 'class', or animals. And I like teams that synergize well together.
The main team I am working on is a Dragonkin/Magic oriented team. The 'Leader' is my Celestial Dragon. My problem is I'm not quite sure what would pair up well with him.
Moonlight is my weather affect of choice. So I'm trying to find pets that have fairly good survivability, and who actually get some benefit from Moonlight.
Currently I'm using:
Nether Fairie Dragon
I've previously tried Tiny Sporebat and Lil' Teracgosa, but I traded them out because neither has good survivability.
This team is doing alright, but I'm wondering if there's something better I can pair up with Celestial Dragon and Moonlight. I like pets that heal, since my experience with non-healing pets is that they have trouble surviving for long. I'm just not sure what pets would work well with this comp.
I've also been debating if I should get a pet that casts Sunlight, so that on the few occasions I end up against a magic team, I can have something else to cast that doesn't also boost their dmg.
Celestial is my highest lvl pet at 16. I have most of the battle pets lower lvl then that, as well as most vendor/rep/faction/Blizz store/holiday/raid pets. So I'm looking for suggestions for pets I can actually use right now.
Moonlight buff both healing and magic damage so you have quite a few choices. With the celestial dragon I would go with a nexus whelp and Chrominius unless you have an onyxian whelp from wow 5th aniversary. The nexus whelp is around level 20ish so you might need to level your team a bit to catch it but it shouldn't take too long.
As you get higher in pet level you will find that 80% of the time healing won't be able to keep up with the damage, especially in pvp. It it usually better to kill your opponents fast or have control abilities than have healing. If you do go with healing you're better off with heals like "cauterize" that heal for a lower base + 1/2 of last hit than you are with a higher base only heal. With moonlight and cauterize style heal you can negate hits for ~900 dmg vs negating ~600 with an ancient blessing type heal. Think of healing as dmg reduction to your health pool.
