RWL VI: Battle discussion!

As usual, the RWL achievements add a bunch of pets; and while the goal is often collecting them all, I think it'd be good to see if they'd bring anything interesting or unique to the battling scene. I haven't had the time to check every pet in detail and the patch hasn't hit the EU servers yet, but ...

Re: BfA Wild Pet discussion

Not sure the Needleback Pup has anything to offer on either breed. I'm torn between both options though - the thing is squishy, has low speed, but high power. So the options are either compensating its squishiness somewhat with an H/P or going all-in for Power; which is, after all, its most unique t...

Re: Must have duplicates with different breeds?

I'd say that pretty much all pets that have access to both P/P and S/S breeds. For example, Bronze Whelpling , Qiraji Guardling , Lifelike Mechanical Frostboar or Bonkers are vastly different as P/P or S/S. Wouldn't call any of them a must have, but the differences between breeds and their supported...

Re: Help Me PLEASE! Having A Hard Time Getting The Hateful Eye Battlepet (

Warlock you'd need people, but I'd think that by level 120 and decently geared the DH Daily shouldn't be to hard to do solo. I remember seeing tank spec DH doing it solo before the expansion dropped. Was soloable at 110 even as DPS with LFR/WQ gear, so it should be trivial now. I know this because ...

Re: BFA World Tamers

Every day there seems to be 3 pet battle WQs on average. So you can't do anything on your terms, gotta chew whats being served. Actually, the average is always 4. There are two large WQ resets every day (in EU, that's 9 am and 9 pm). Each of these resets brings along 2 pet WQs, one on each continen...

Re: Elite boss buff should be replace with double HP

50% damage reduction is essential double hp. Your change wouldn’t actually have any impact on these mechanics. Just FYI swarm is 100% damage increase. 50% reduction - 100% increase is 50% increase to damage. Not quite, it's indeed a relative increase of 3x. You're missing a 100% in the formula, whi...

Re: Next Nerf?

To be completely honest, the clear fix would be to make the 50% damage reduction apply to the total damage, after all calculations. That is, whatever damage you'd deal to a normal pet is halved. The Boss passive already does a damage post-calculation (capping the damage to 35% of max health) so it's...

Re: Twilight thoughts?

[ability]Twilight Fire[/ability] is neat. Even if it's not a good buddy for [ability]Conflagrate[/ability] and [ability]Deep Burn[/ability] due to its short duration, it deals great damage by itself. The problem? A 1 round cooldown, on a pet that has cooldowns on all other abilities. That makes it p...

Re: Strongest most OP pet ability

I beg to differ with the suggested [ability]Haunt[/ability] nerf. Missing already makes it incur its cooldown, and totally screws the plans for the user. To me, that is enough of a punishment. Besides, if missing made it kill the user instantly, that'd be an indirect buff to Darkness: "10% chance to...

Re: Strongest most OP pet ability

Can't decide one... :lol: [ability]Haunt[/ability] is up there. Always been, but the fact that it appeared on a fast pet has made it silly (free swap, DoT, immunity to AoE...). It's true that [ability]Consume Magic[/ability] owns it bad, but having a single hard-counter never made anything balanced....

Someone brought up a good point about Surger that I didn't mention and that being it has both Stone Rush and Bodyslam. Both do self-inflicted damage, true, but coupled with a Celestial Blessing pet(will half all damage, even the recoil), this pet could lead to some pretty fun/fast fights. [pet]Crim...

Re: RWL5 PVP pet analysis

Interesting analysis, Biscuit! However, as much as I like the hype-train, I think it'd be best to remain wary about datamined stuff... at least when it's still early. For example, Poison Protocol is absurd with the current values - I'm ok with the concept, being AoE DoT and status effect - but with ...
