That explains a lot. I kept seeing this come up as a recent thread and was like "Huh? Why are people still having issues with this fight?"Jerebear wrote:Pre nerf that didn't work all the time (that is what you are missing). Quintessence's rotation was different and she hit harder. What could often happen (about 25% of the time) is that she would triple hit the water spirit twice in a row and kill it before you could get off Whirlpool (leaving only Geyser up). Back then, to get a guaranteed kill, you needed an exploder to explode on round one, placing the water spirit on her heatup round (which used to be round 3), allowing the water spirit to always live. Then all you had to worry about on Chrominius was 2 rounds of triple hits + 2 crits, which was a much lower chance (<1%).Biscuit wrote:Am I missing something here?
A lot of earlier comments in this thread were pre nerf.
You are right that now a days it is much easier. A lot of people don't like the howl bomb (I don't mind either way myself), so they want alternate methods is probably another reason.
On a side note: Why do "A lot of people not like the howl bomb". That doesn't seem to make much sense to me. It is one of the most versatile and universal strategies in pet battling. Why would people not like something that works so well. I'm not talking PvP of course.
