This pet is an awesome hard hitter! One word of caution however is going up against an Anubisath Idol. For one, he will change the weather away from Arcane Storm and another... he will murder you with crush. Having a Arcane Eye added to the mix can mitigate and eventually remove the Idol from play. I really enjoy playing this pet... just 2 buttons and sit back and watch the other team scramble.
Special note... due to Arcane Winds he can't be interupted or stunned. :)
For the Daily Pet Battle with Jahan, Samm, and Archimedes, I noticed that the opponents first round was always Arcane Storm.
So, for you Nexus Whelpling, use Wild Magic to put another magic attack augment into play. Then just Mana Surge your way through all three, or play clean up with the last survivor if you are unlucky. For me, it killed all three so fast, I thought I had found a bug.
Awesome, awesome pet and one of my favorites by far! I didn't realize how powerful this little guy was until I finally tried him out as a serious pet team member. Arcane Storm followed by Mana Surge are such a deadly duo! If that isn't quite enough, Tail Swipe will put the nails into the coffin. One of the most powerful and consistent pets out there. All that, wrapped up in an adorable blue package of cuteness...I know it's going to be a great takedown when Blueberry enters the arena! :)
This is a must have pet for everyone. Its' combo of Arcane Storm and then Mana Surge is incredible. I have three different breeds. They can kill any flyer, and during the garrison mission quest; one Nexus can easily solo that fight. I bring two Nexus to the daily fights in Spires of Arak and Talador. For my third pet, I usually bring in a lower level critter pet in Talador, just to get the extra experience points. Flyers dont do well against critters.
Dominates the daily garrison mission with Samm, Jahan, and Archimedes.
One of my all-time favorite pets!
Nice anti-magic with a great model. Somehow, I got lucky and got a P/P rare on my first try after three times of checking the island while looking for an unborn val'kyr.
I run 2 of these P/S breed (and 1 level pet) and they tear through Taralune and Vesharr's pets in Draenor like they were made of butter. When going against flyers, the P/S of the whelpling usually takes over by the 2nd or 3rd turn and DESTROYS flying pets.
Started looking for one of these yesterday. Found plenty of spawns last night and this morning. Plus they would respawn normal enough, initially, but then they stopped respawning . Captured two uncommon. Will be going back to look for a rare, unless I get a stone.
The P/P Nexus Whelpling is absolutely destructive in PvP. If your enemy doesn't have a Mechanical Pet, even after Mana Surge's damage was toned down, the Nexus Whelpling will put out an insane amount of pressure and (More often than not) kill something.
I get prepared to feel the hurt whenever I see this pet in an enemy team, and it's not too uncommon to see some people running three of these at once.
I was able to pick up three green spawns in a row, all in about 10 minutes, and it was just shortly after a patch.
Geeeez! I can't seem to find any! Where are they hiding, i've looked on the map. Do they only come out at a certain time??
I'm considering one of those, a P/P breed for PvP to combat all the Valkyrs people are using nowadays, I figuere Tail Sweep + Sear Magic + Wild Magic can really hurt them. Can anyone give me some info about Sear Magic? Does it remove everything, like Haunt, Blinding Poison, Curse of Doom ? And what happens to the Valkyr when you dispell Haunt?
Got my rare on the first one I found :D Granted, it took me a couple trips to even see one. It was only a P/B, so I flew around and found a P/P even though it was poor. I can always stone it later :D
Still trying for a blue but I've seen something funny .dont know if it's a glitch or not. As I was flying round looking for pet battles I saw a sheep and a hare. But when I got there they were nexus whelplings . Was so funny to see a sheep and a hare hovering of the ground. Is this glitch or is it some sort of disguise .
Nexus Whelpling is the best pet to use against Jeremy Feasel.
Using Tail Sweep is the best to defeat the first pet and Arcane Storm is essential to combat the monkey.
Sorry guys but i have a dumb ? What does P/P breed mean?
Thanks Morgren52 That helps alot.
Finally upgraded mine to a rare. Found it right before logging for the night. This little girl has one of the more intersting looks then the other drakes. The rune on her leg and the helmet making her stand out.
I was having trouble finding spawns. Every time I went to Coldarra I could find one, maybe two...but after the server reset there were about ten flying around. Had no problems finding a rare then!
It does pack a punch with mana surge, can kill all three wild pets, but when it does, I've noticed I don't get any XP for it. Anyone else notice that?
