Re: Battle with that pet

Mr. Chilly himself did fine. I saw lots of teams with Lil Rag and Valks, naturally, and he did excellently against both of those. Highlight was when Slippery Ice + Ice Lance made an all-mech team flee after just a couple rounds. However, at the moment I'm incredibly frustrated, and am thus going to ...

Defensive moves

It seems like Crouch (and other identical moves) are almost always worth spending a turn on. Shell Shield et al. also seem worth it, except possibly vs. infrequent but heavy hitters. But others I'm not as sure about. Are the following generally worth the skill slot and the turn it takes to use them?...

Re: Major Payne Really Is!

Yeah, it's definitely doable, though you should definitely level a mech pet as they're a ton of fun. My favorite is [pet]Lil' Bling[/pet] (who tends to solo Payne's first 2 pets for me most of the time). For example, your Dark Phoenix Hatchling can debuff his healing with [ability]Darkflame[/ability...

Re: Battle with that pet

The Aqua Strider was the first aquatic pet I got to 25. Nowadays I mostly use a more powery breed of strider instead, but for pvp I won't mind the Aqua's speed at all! Initial setup: [pet]Lil' Ragnaros[/pet] (1-1-2), [pet]Blighthawk[/pet] (1-1-1), [pet]Aqua Strider[/pet] (1-1-2) 1: Xu Fu, Pandaren W...

Re: Help choosing a flier

The moths found on the Timeless Isle are rather unique. I like the [pet]Skywisp Moth[/pet] especially. [pet]Wildhammer Gryphon Hatchling[/pet] comes in some great breeds. The Darkmoon Faire is going on right now, so catch a [pet]Crow[/pet] if you haven't already. [pet]Jade Owl[/pet] is technically m...

Re: Battle with that pet

Come and hear my tale of sorrow. [pet]Restless Shadeling[/pet] seems quite mediocre, as was the random-ass team I put him with. Shadeling (2-1-1), [pet]Eternal Whelpling[/pet] (2-1-1), [pet]Pterrordax Hatchling[/pet] (1-1-2) I went with this because it covered a decent amount of pet families, and I ...

Re: Battle with that pet

[pet]Fire Beetle[/pet]? Challenge accepted. I leveled this for a specific (admittedly non-pvp) purpose (I find it fun to level pets on tough trainers, using 1 or 0 level 25s. The highest level pet is picked very specialized to the encounter. Don't do it, it's not efficient at all; merely fun). I dec...

Re: Help figuring out a team

Looking at your collection, I'd say you have some fun team options using your favorite pets, with a little help from other pets you have that are close to 25. One thing you can do is a "delayed burst" combo: the most famous example is Pandaren Water Spirit + Chrominius, but all it really takes is a ...

Re: Battle with that pet

Thanks for the information about snakes! I'm sorry yours got a bum rap, but maybe Someone Upstairs wanted you to use Vicious Fang (it looks so cool!) I did some battling with the [pet]Ashstone Core[/pet] tonight. I meant to do more (specifically to try out a wacky team based on [ability]Instability[...

Re: Battle with that pet

Alright, cool, [pet]Death Talon Whelpguard[/pet]. This was for some reason one of the first pets I got to level 25; I like how he looks! PVP-wise, he's not a superstar, but I imagine you could do worse. The recent buff to Spiked Skin makes it a viable slot 2 choice. He also has some good versatility...

For anyone who is lurking but has not joined in the thread, please take the chance. It's good to get out of your comfort zone and you can really learn a lot. This is very true Harpua. It is great that some people are posting strats with these dust-covered pets as well. It is nice to actually scroll...

Re: Yay PvP!

Beyond entertainment, is one rewarded for PVPing after the weekly quest is complete? So far for winning I think I've only gotten Lesser Charms (which are useless to anyone who has spent any time on Timeless Isle, you get more than you can spend), and stones that convert pets to Uncommon quality (whi...

Re: Regarding Demolish & blind hit bug - from Blizz

There's also an interesting interaction with shields, which seem very common in PVP. If moveA hits 100% for 100 damage and moveB hits 50% for 200 damage, moveB is clearly superior against "Reduce damage by X" defenses. Thus there is a large incentive to have access to some gambley moves. The contras...

Yay PvP!

I've been having a lot of fun since I started collecting and leveling pets a month ago. I wanted to make this post to say THANK YOU VEK and the other battlers who have posted helpful advice for pvp newbies and interesting battle recaps. I originally thought I wouldn't touch pet pvp, as I imagined it...

"Filter these results"

This is probably a known issue, but I didn't see any recent mention of it. For example, if I select "Pets with Unique Ability Sets" from the menu, I'm taken to a (super awesome!) results page. It would be nice it filter the list a bit more; let's say "Undead with Unique Abilities". And sure enough, ...
