Lil Bling 2/2/2
Wild Golden Hatchling 1/1/2

1) Start with Lil Bling
2) Build Rocket
3) Swap to Wild Golden Hatchling
4) Lift Off
5) Breath
6) Breath
7) Call Lightning (on the turn its about to die. Should be a Whirlpool turn)
8) Bring in Bling > Inflation
-- When Inflation ends you should be on the Direhorn with it @~1200 hp
9) Launch Rocket
10) Build Rocket (should be on the cow now)
11) Armor up
12) Inflation
13) Rocket

Worked great. I was really skeptical on how this was going to work because of the really slow start.

Me too, but it worked wonderfully! I thought for a bit that I'd done something wrong.

I misread the title at first but the strat worked perfectly nonetheless. I guess I didn't read the Elekk part, I just saw pet carry strat :D I guess tomorrow I'll try to devise a way to ensure my carry pet makes it in a turn for the XP. Thanks for the Elekk strat!

I can't wait to see what people start coming up with when we all start really playing around with the new Draenor pets. I'm leveling mine up right now (I've got all but the Bone Wasp and new Holiday dudes from Draenor anyway) and it's going to be exciting to say the least!


The last go around of the DMF had some really fun strats, I'm glad to see another pop out!

So far this was the hardest Elekk pet carry for me to figure out. Most have been fairly easy and could use previous 2 pet carry strats. I saw a bunch of Beta versions on Christoph that no longer work because of Sid's changes. And I didn't have a high level Mech Squirrel (cuz who does? :p) to try out the Scourging Whelp / Mech Squirrel combo.

This one was fairly simple. And I wanted to share it cause it's kinda weird -- starts with a pet swap -- and you don't take dmg from the Direhorn which is kinda awesome lol -- but actually is using pets for their hard counters (Call Lightning to buff Mech dmg which is strong against beasts, and Breath which is strong against Magic).

Glad people like this. I'm not sure it'll work as a normal 2 pet carry. I don't think you have enough turns. The only real place for the pet to be swapped in is at the very end (against the cow) before Bling does his final Inflation. I haven't really checked it, but I think Bling will probably be killed when you swap back in before he can get his final Rocket off.

Still -- this was the least RNG strat I could figure out for the Elekk carry. It actually has some leeway too, as a crit or two from the tamers pets shouldn't spell doom.

Glad ya'll responded so positively to my first post! Yey!

Very nice strategy. I've been using it all week. I tried to find a modification to squeeze in a leveler, but gave up after a few tries. Every turn is critical, and I really appreciate how you take advantage of the additional damage debuff from Inflation when you pound home the rockets.

Beave, you can check over at the thread discussing the [url=http://www.warcraftpets.com/community/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11719&start=80]Cristoph von Feasel[/url] carry pet strats. There are several that work to a greater or lesser extent, for when you want a carry pet instead of the plushie in there.

Personally I've been too lazy to dig deeper yet, and have stuck with a modified version of the OP, using S/S Bronze Whelpling and P/P Iron Starlette:
Early Advantage > Tail Sweep > Lift Off > Tail Sweep {Syd dies} > Early Advantage {Whelp dies} > swap in carry pet > swap in Iron Starlette > Wind-Up > Powerball > Wind-Up {Mr Pointy dies} > Wind-Up > Supercharge > Wind-Up {Victory!}

Pretty sure it'll work better with an H/S Whelpling and my H/H Starlette (as discussed, the H/S helps w/crits from Syd and the H/H removes the risk of high hits by Mr Pointy). If you use an H/H you just need to change his moves vs Mr. Pointy to be Wind-Up > Powerball > Powerball > Wind-Up.

Worked like a charm. After trying many strats, this is the winner!
Thank you,
