A question on breeds

Post by Màndorla » March 12th, 2013, 12:47 pm

Hi all, I have a question on breeds cause I still don't understand them well ;)

How do you know the best breed for each kind of pet? It depends on the type (acquatic, humanoid and so on) or is something related to every single pet and his specific abilities?

I am nowhere NEAR being an expert (or even good) at this, but I tend to look at the abilities. If they have something that benefits form going first, or last (say Spawn of Onyxia and its tail swipe), that helps me decide the value I put on speed.

It also depends on if the pet has healing abilities, and if those abilities are base on it's health pool or the dmg it does. Or, the composition/abilities of the team you plan to put that pet on.

I imagine, if you do PvP battles, a big part of it is also probably knowing what other pets are popular for people to be using, and knowing what breed is best to counter those, but I haven't PvPed yet.

Beyond that, for me, it's just kind of personal preference. I'm glad someone asked this, though. I look forward to reading responses form more seasoned battlers :)

I still have the same issues. At the moment, I'm not being fussy. I'm just rare hunting and I'll get more picky as time goes on. However, I too look at the skills. Tiny Sporebat was one that was annoying me the other day as I wanted to sell some. I ended up keeping the high health one as none of it's abilities relied on speed etc and other people had complained about theirs having longevity issues.

In the end, I do think it's really a lot about preference. I will never take it to the extreme that some people have. For me, battling is secondary, collecting is my primary aim :)
