Dropped for me last night! He becomes very large with a pet biscuit.  I named him Daniel Jackson!  :D

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

Mobot, I hope you are right. IMO this pet (along with the Unborn Valkyr) has ruined PvP - at least for me. On my server, at least 50% of my opponents have one on their team. I saw one team that had two Anubisaths and an Unborn Valk!

Why did I bother grinding up 109 pets to lv 25 if half the PvP battles are going to have one or both of these pets?


It's gotten to the point where, when I see one of these overpowered pets on the opposing team I just abort the fight. It's sooo boring fighting these same pets over and over. And it's such a drag having to set up all my PvP teams to guard against them.


Part of the problem is that AIs have gotten really cheap on the AH. You can get one now for about 1100g. So you don't have to put in any thought toward making a good PvP team any more, you just buy one or two of these, level 'em up, and you're ready to kick butt.


So I am all for nerfing both of these pets as I think they do harm to the game the way they are now.

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.

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.

My One-set Strategies for Pandaren dailies:


Burning Spirit

-Against Crimson

(Sandstorm [1] on cooldown > spam Crush [2] > Reflective Shield [3] {on Lift-off})

-Against Pandaren Fire Spirit

(3 [before Conflagrate] > 1 on cooldown > spam 2)

-Against Glowey

(keep 1 up while leveling pet att. > spam 2)


Courageous Yon

• Leveling pet introduced while 1 is up during any stampede att.

-Against enemies

(keep 1 up / use 3 to evade Lift-off, Burrow / spam 2)

Very powerful pet and easily my most used. My only complaint is the percentage ratio on the skills. One is 50% while the other is 80%. It just doesn't seem to me that the 80% skill lands any more often than the 50% one.

I ran this dungeon today to try to pick up the 3 pets inside.  Unbelievably, all 3 dropped for me in one run.  I am going out and buying a lottery ticket before this luck runs out.

When you use this pet now, if you roll your mouse over sandstorm is still says damaged reduced by 74.  Once you use sandstorm it now says UP to 74.

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


In battles where I used sandstorm to avoid a stampede style, multiple attack, I've gone to the Emerald Proto-Whelp, with the Emerald Presence defense. It's really the only option until they fix sandstorm.

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!

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.

Must have for serious battlers. High hp along w/ humanoid +health on hit = strong survivability.

Anubisath Idol: solos all three of Aki the Chosen's legedaries and doesn't even break a sweat. Sandstorm makes Chirrup a joke. Between deflection and crush, Stormlash bites it. Whiskers can be a pain, but sandstorm can chunk his health and deflection avoids his dive attack.


I've found that Anubisath Idol (along with maybe my Nexus Whelpling) is my most powerful pet. Even though Crush has  been nerfed to miss almost half of the time, it's almost irrelevant given how tanky this pet is.

Very useful pet in PvE. Practically solos a couple of Pandaria Trainers, excellent for boosting low level pets.


Plan on doing PvP, be prepared to meet this guy. Why? Because its a solid, easy to use, hard hitter with small self heal and defensive moves. It hits like a truck with Demolish(even Crush hits hard). Sandstorm negates most DoTs and multiattacks.


Don't want to join them? I find that Blighthawks usually can do the job.

With high dps numbers nowadays it's easy to solo the twin emperors with some 90's normal/heroic gear dungeons. And since blizzard update the loot, sharing it (before you have to give at least one hit in the boss to get his loot), you can kill any of then and cross your fingers.

Very powerful pet against pve trainers, crush, stoneskin and deflection. Sandstorm is only moderately useful in pvp with the bugged demolish.

One of the best pets in the game. I use him every day for leveling my other pets. I often use him in PVP too, his Demolish and survivability is more than enough to get any beast down.

Don't ever use Sandstorm and Demolish together, it makes Demolish miss a bunch more.

Vs critters and other pets that dot or have multiple slow damaging hits, he is unbeatable. His passive heal gets you around 75 health per round.

He will be my no.1 pet for a long time, and I named him Apophis.

This guy is FIERCE against dragons, even the "hard" ones like the bastich you're up against first in the Burning Pandaren Spirit daily; it hurts a little when he misses, but if you can land every hit, the epic level dragon pets you'll fight in Pandaria will fall within 3 rounds; judicious use Deflection really stretches out his life as well.

Brilliant pet for the daily pet battle quests. Can deal with a lot of punishment. Couple with a Emerald Proto-Whelp of breed 4 and you have a duo capable of fast levelling other pets.
