Re: Bonkers

No I don't think it has been buffed, except for Going Bonkers crit buff being better than before. But a P/P Bonkers Haymaker would hit you for about 860 non-crit and you had still been damaged by a very hard hitting Call Darkness. And Anzu's Blessing is also buffed now. Not only do you get 25% to hi...

Re: About Bronze Whelpling

One strange thing also happened twice during one fight. I stunned the opposing pet and then when I used Arcane Slash nothing happened, my turn just passed without any damage being dealt. First time was against same speed Lil'Bling. Second time I don't recall if it was bling again or it was the slow...

Re: 6.0.2 First impressions

Crush, Crush, Crush, Crush = 4*((0.45*16) + (0.5*28) + (0.05*1.5*28)) = 93.2 Hawk Eye, Crush, Crush, Crush = 3*((0.2*28) + (0.8*1.5*28)) = 117.6 So it's actually not bad. Ah nice, thanks. Guess crit buffs can be more useful now. Theoretically they would preform better on the old 80-95% hit abilitie...

Re: 6.0.2 First impressions

Hawk Eye looks quite strong, as a crit will always roll high. A P/P Quiraji Guardling should be able to push a beastly Crush with that. Crush, Crush, Crush, Crush = 4*(0.45*16 + 0.55*1.5*28) = 121.2 dmg over 4 turns Hawk Eye, Crush, Crush, Crush = 3*(0.2*28 + 0.8*1.5*28) = 117.6 dmg over 4 turns No...

Re: 6.0.2 First impressions

I've also noticed a handful of issues with magic abilities not doing more to flying, or mech to beast, etc. This is probably because the attacks are hitting in the low end damage range which makes the bonus damage feel like nothing. For example, suppose opponent is at 250 health. Old system: I need...

Re: 6.0.2 First impressions

Something that may not appear intuitive and some may not realize: HIt buffs/debuffs in addition to changing the hit % of an ability affect how often high vs low occurs. By default, you have a 50% chance to hit low and a 50% chance to hit high. If someone casts darkness, you get a 60% chance to hit ...

Re: 6.0.2 First impressions

I can now tell you that Hawk Eye on the Guardling is indeed very sweet. But then if you still don't crit you will hit for like 200 with crush(depending on breed), lol. And with the Poison Fang nerf it will not hit through Spirit Spikes anymore. So your Vengeful Porcupette won't deal any damage and w...

6.0.2 First impressions

So been pvp battling a couple of days now. I was never in the "remove misses" corner but now that they are gone I don't really miss them. It is very nice to know that your Wind-Up/Touch of the Animus/Burrow/Lift-Off or whatever is actually going to hit(barring hit modifiers like blind/sandstorm/dark...

Re: Easy PVP team post 6.0

Not working? I just faced a clone-dance team twice, seemed to work just as before. Only thing I can think of is a slight Steam Vent damage reduction. Anyone care to enlighten me?

About Bronze Whelpling

I got lucky and after a few runs through Nethergard Mines a S/S one dropped for me. Have tried it out in PvP for a bit. It kind of feels like a slightly speedier old favourite of mine, the Scalded Basilisk Hatchling. Both are in trouble against mechs and against faster opponents, but when they are f...

About Sky-Bo

So has anyone gotten this guy yet and tried it out? Found two on AH for about 40-60K so thats a no no for me at the moment. Did we really need a 325 speed Decoy? At least it does not have Thunderbolt(damn that hits hard on 1-2 pets now). Seems like an interesting pet but nowhere near as annoying as ...

Re: Iron Starlette is becomming a rather familiar monster?

What the Starlettes do though is trivialise even further some PvE content. Tough pet on trainer in celestial tournament, wind-up + super charge + wind-up. Quite silly vs wild pets, wind-up + powerball + wind-up.

Re: Iron Starlette is becomming a rather familiar monster?

Does seem like a powerful new pet. But I'm much more interested in the S/S Bronze Whelpling. Also seems like a powerful addition. Arcane Slash doing more damage when going first. Stun and Lift-Off, for example. There are of course other breeds as well that can be used very differently.

You broke Vengeance. :)

Whats the theory behind Uncanny luck and rain dance? Just to get more crit?

Re: One hit wonders incoming!

Avoidance is the best counter -- Deflection/Feign are super hard counters and may become extra popular for a while. Starlette needs 5+ turns to land its combo on a standard fast avoidance pet (rabbit, DAH, moth) and these are not at all uncommon. FFF was brutal because Supercharge didn't go away un...

Re: One hit wonders incoming!

Magic pets were never a viable counter for FFF, and I wouldn't expect them to be effective against Starlette either. Starlette can just Powerball or swap out against a magic pet -- the racial will never come into play. Most magic pets also deal weak dmg to mechs, so the available options are very n...

Re: One hit wonders incoming!

Still its a two round(+additional if you need powerball) setup do do this. So lots of time to react and switch in that magic pet with elemental attacks. Not close to the Murkalot silliness. 3-4 rounds is nothing unusual, when counting turns, to take out a pet and for at least two turns you take no d...

Re: Fun Murkalot teams

This is true, though it's not necessarily limited to RI. A prowl and flux can be just as strong or heartbroken and that aoe. Granted, these come with more drawbacks (heartbreak gives the user more damage and prowl is, well, prowl) but I'm just saying that RI isn't the only AOE buff out there. It's ...

Re: Fun Murkalot teams

Righteous inspiration is nearly indefensible when used against back line pets, AND it goes first. RI does go first but A) you can attack the pet that is coming after RI is finished and B) the pet, while it does have higher speed, can be blocked by any of the 'this always goes first' type spells and...

Re: Fun Murkalot teams

I have not seen much imagination either from the Murkalot teams I have faced, mostly just paired with Blackfuse Bombling. But this week I have actually faced a Murkalot with Shieldstorm, it became mostly fodder, but can be brutal if paired with Magical Crawdad for example. Anyway for inspiration pur...
