I agree...6.1 seems to have significantly weakened Anubisath... Very disappointing. :-(

Has anyone noticed, that sandstorm doesnt work as intended after 6.1 patch. At least for me it doesn't reduce dmg by 74 as it should. Seems like sandstorm has any effect.

As highly rated as this guy is, I have been fairly non-plussed by the high percentage of misses when I use Demolish or Crush. Is there any other breed than HH? I like to open with Sandstorm and sometimes use Rupture, and then use either Demolish or Crush (whichever I've got going for the fight). My guy misses up to 5x in a row, seemingly whatever I'm fighting, and I don't like using him anymore. Has he been nerfed or am I just doing something wrong?

To anyone who said they don't raid. All you have to do is walk into the dungeon by your self and go to the boss that has him. I ran by everyone on my mount and the second time I came he dropped it. It took me longer to travel to the area then it did to walk in and get him.

  This pet is just crazy good. I was fighting some mad beastie that was level 22 with my level 14 Anub. and the first pet got me down to about half health but by the time I had finished him off and the other 2 pets as well I was back up to within 100 points of full health again. Go figure.

This guy has earned his reputation as best pet in the game.  I lucked out and found him for 500g at the AH over in Gadgetzan.  Doing the Pandarian Spirit Tamers for the first time so many recommendations was to use the Anubisath Idol but mine was still only at level 16.  But he had the spells recommended so I figured why not.  He crushed through those Spirit tamers along side my Emerald Proto-Whelp and others.  Finished all 4 at level 24!

People are commenting saying they aren't raiders and paid unglodly amounts of money for Anubisath. Don't have to raid to get him, solo the instance if you're max level. Dropped third time through for me! Now I have to get the other two pets to drop lol

Paid only 1000g for this one on the AH because I'm too impatient to raid everytime. Such luck! :D

After testing many pet dailies in 6.0 I've decided that the tweaks to Crush end up as an extremely minor nerf if that.  The extra turn or two it may take to bring down enemy pets ends up basically same as the misses you'd encounter with the old 70% hit chance (with Sandstorm up).  This is still an amazing pet and absolutely essential to every tamer.

The only way to improve this guy is have demolish at 75% instead of 50%. Great defensive skills. When demolish does hit the battle is over.

They tweaked his Crush ability a bit in 6.0. The hit rate base is up to 100%, and it now does a range of damage rather than a set amount. Overall it'll probably end up being a very minor nerf and this will still be a top5 battle pet.


Also, I highly suspect there's an error in the mechanics of Crush. It's still missing at an astronomically high rate with standstorm up compared to the claimed 90% hit rate. I suspect the hit rate flavor text was updated, but the actual data is still at 80% base.

Had to pick up mine on the AH.  I am a very slow gold maker, and unually have less than 1000 gold, but it just so happens I had completed the trainers quest which gives 3000 gold reward.  As a treat, I bought myself on for 990g.  Then a week later I read they nerfed the attack damage.  Sigh.


I still find this to be a good pet, and useful in some of the garrison battles.  The dodge ability is pretty key to missing some big hits.  If you have pet tracker addon, you can see when they care coming and avoid them.

I named mine Choke Artist, because the one thing he's good at is missing attacks at the worst times, and I don't even use Demolish.

I bought him a couple of weeks back at AH for 900 gold.  The next cheapest one was listed at $1900.  He is by far, my best fighter.  He was beating level 20 pets when he was just level 11.  Very impressed with his look and his abilities.

This pet is very good. I use him in most Pandaria Trainer/Elemental fights. It might be slow with his miss rate, but as long as he doesn't have a chain of 3 misses on crush you usually always win. Many of the fights he is still doing well after he kills the first 2 pets. On a good RNG on crush he can solo some trainer fights.

VERY easy to beat IF you know what your doing you need i either A a pet with healing Magical Crawdad is what i do or B a pet with defence or able to stun you like  kun lai runt or C you fight fire with anubisath fire and hope you go first alot ALSO use crush, stoneskin, and rupture dont use demolish beacause it has low hit chance dont use sandstorm because it makes it harder for you to hit and dont use reflect because you cant hit them and they cant hit you so its like nothing even happend

Ever since he dropped of Vek'Lor, I have been in LOVE with this pet, I have a thing for Egyptian type stuff, named my first one, Anuksanamun (Mummy movie reference) and second one Hemotep (another, Mummy movie reference, lol) and he is awesome, this pet is a BEAST, the ultimate "panacea pet", he has a self-heal, crushing blows and a guard you can use every 3-5 turns, he's pretty bad ass.

The ones I use in Battle are Anubsiath Idol, Chrominius and Pocket Reaver.

I rarely lose, if ever.

On a whim, checked AH and saw a couple of these for 2Kg. Not a small fee, but for the pet rated second only to the Unborn Val'Kyr - and virtually impossible to farm without a group - I figured it was reasonable. I only used him in two battles so far, but he won me my rare Fluxfire Feline, and both will become my Thirds for their respective types once I get the core 15 levelled.
