Absolutely love this guy. I have a P/P and, like the guy who named his Bane of Nishi, I use him to power level on both Nishi and Aki! I'd really like to get a second.

I got a 4, 14 (Destruction) breed of this guy and he's been one of my mainstays ever since.  Good mix of moves, and with his high damage/high healing, he's got great survivability, and he absolutely crushes Elemental pets with a Surge, Healing Wave, Whirlpool moveset.  Surge makes his high damage, low speed combo almost a non-factor, since you can always get off a finishing attack even against faster opponents.  Pop Whirlpool, Surge, Surge, and Healing Wave as needed :D

So many other crabs come in the H/H 6,16 breed, but only this and the other panda crab (spirebound) have the P/P 4,14 breed, so why have another H/H? Edit, the goblin crab also currently comes in a P/P, but it might not when it gets changed. Anyone know what its getting changed to? I would guess its going to be B/B but I really hope not.

Found one spawned, and found several of different qualities as addons to the Rapana Whelks in the area surrounding Kaz'tik the Manipulator at 42.72.

This guy devastates Farmer Nishi.  Against first sunflower pet use almost any combo starting with Whirpool, Heal and Surge.  Against his second turnip pet; he will submerge for two rounds, so on your first move use Surge, then Whirpool and Heal yourself up.  Once he pops back up, that untasty turnip is basically just a nice soup for your Emp Crab. Hit his last beast pet with Whirlpool to keep things safe, then swap in low level pet to finish up, getting tons of exp.

I found my rare secondary to a Clouded Hedgehog.  I noticed while capturing it, and previous lesser quality ones, it seems oddly difficult to capture.  Not sure if it was just a bug I was experiencing or what, but it took me 5 shots to catch the little bugger in two seperate instances.  That said, I love it as a battle pet.  I use a P/P breed, tough as nails.

Definitely a must have pet for PVE pet battlers, this pet can practically solo almost all of the MoP trainers (I use P/P breed, but H/H does fine as well). 357 attack power with the P/P breed! You have a wide assortment of attack/defensives to suit your needs (Surge for Elementals, Snap for Critters, Mist/Heal+Shield or Mist/Heal+Whirlpool). I carry 2x P/P breeds, and 1 H/H breed.

I have two lvl 25 rares, Constantine and Nero, that form the backbone of my Critter Gitter Mob. Pop in a low lvl pet to level up and they're able to deal with any wild trio I come across.

This little guy is extremely resilient, withstanding even flying barrages. His impressive health pool and defensive abilities make him a powerful wall, and his strength makes him a formidable attacker. The versatility of his moves also make him a team player, capable of healing his team or holding off attacks long enough to wear down the opponent.

 

Suggested moves:

1st: Snap or Surge (Situational)

2nd: Healing Mists (Healing Wave can be used if you have a HOT)

3rd: Shell Shield

Named mine "Bane of Nishi" as he can easily solo all 3 pets of that master in VoFW.  I use this battle everyday to level a pet by throwing up mists then swapping in low pet right after sunflower casts sunlight.

 

Rocks against 'most' elementals. :)

This pet has the ability to hold down any group through leveling as it is capable of self/current pet heals and the use of an average damaging ability.  At times, this pet is almost cheating, even against NPC pet trainers

Love this guy. He's the anchor on my team and once the first 2 have beaten on the enemy for a while they have little chance of over coming his shield and self healing.

Happy to say that my 1st was a 25 rare, piggy-backed on a snail. ;) I was stoked to say the least.

Breed 4, 14 of this bad boy has huge attack! Since healing is affected by attack, this guy is an amazing healer and can pack a punch with his offense, too.

 

I got lucky and found a rare one of breed 4, 14 on my third try!

Got one tonight on the coast. Poor quality. I was surprised to see it on my map, assumed it would be a second pet after looking for so long. I also noticed that this pet, along with several others I caught around the same time were not showing up as being caught under the safari achieve, and as i entered battle with the same pets it said they had not been caught yet as well. They are in my pet journal though. Opened a ticket, haven't heard back yet.

I just can't find a rare to save me.  I did however, use a lvl 22 uncommon to defeat Majro Payne's Bloom elemental.

The emperor crab was named for its regal appearance: the ridges of its shell and its raised claws eerily resembling a crown. One that would pinch your eyes out if you tried to wear it.
