/ Lava Beetle
Definitely my favourite (two...) of the Beetle pet family! Still sitting in the Critter family they've got a nice palate of skills at hand. Whether you choose to go with Burn
is moot; they're both great skills without cooldowns. While Hiss
makes sure Flank
has a greater chance of putting out its maximum potential and Scorched Earth
is an outright great skill, both great for general Wild Pet battles, they don't compare to the combination of Cauterize
in those lengthy Tamer battles, as well as PvP Pet Battles!
did recieve an increased CD it is exceptional, especially if you can keep that beautiful little bug alive! On a personal note; I love matching this guy with a Magical Crawdad
and Singing Sunflower
: combine their skills pallet and you have a very tanky, healing team - which while still doing damage, will lead to the enemy pet dropping dead and a pretty red Beetle surviving! Singing Sunflower
buffs up both pets: using Sunlight
the weather is changed; increasing the Health and healing done of all pets. It doubles the effect of Photosynthesis
too, making it much easier for you to switch to your next pet...Magical Crawdad
is the teams tank, more so with Sunny weather - the poor guy must be burning up!
. Using Renewing Mists
there's a lot of HoTs (Healing over Time) active on your team. Next turn a Wish
is in order before switching back to your lovely Fire Beetle
to see them get healed (probably to full health) and back in game to heal themselves and fight some more!
The full track of switching pets lasts 7 rounds in total; switching to Singing Sunflower
and finally back to your Fire Beetle
. Two round trips and, if you're back on your Beetle, Apocalypse
However this does not account for stuns/weather changes - but that doesn't mean it will not work. It is by all means a slow, but fun process! No one likes the player that never dies but your pets certainly will.
