Longest pet battle?

Post by Topaz » January 13th, 2015, 4:05 pm

Ever since the Christmas sale on blizz shop ive been seeing Blossoming Ancient EVERYWHERE on PVP battles. my normal team is a Fiendish Imp, an Ominous Flame and Son of Sethe and usually its been pretty easy killing them by either changing the weather with Ominous Flame or by switching pets with Nether Gate.
This time the Blossoming Ancient was the last to stay - with Ironbark completely blocking Immolate I had no use for my Fiendish Imp so i decided to do as much dmg as possible and let my unkillable when sunlight is up son of sethe kill it. Foolishly I thought it wouldn't take that long. I was wrong
After I saw he was slowly (very slowly) starting to lose i thought he would flee. Again, I was wrong.
the result
Anyone else encountered a long fight where he just KNEW he would eventually win and refused to escape?

And this is why I don't PVP. 323 rounds???? Wow.

Good for you for sticking with it!

I battled 3 singing sunflowers once. Was a complete stalemate, I refused to throw in the towel (the person with the sunflowers was clearly counting on opponents just backing down because of healing, he had no real damage dealing to speak of). Took very nearly an hour before he/she forfeit. I think I was watching House on TV or something like that.

It's very easy to avoid such long battles... just avoid using the handful of "endurance" pets in game.
None of my PVP teams use them and I am pretty successful in PVP.

The only time I did use them was when I was trying to get the "No Time To Heal" achievement legitimately. They were the cheapest wins I ever had, it was so lame :< Ended up not feeling like I legitimately earnt it afterall!

I PvP a lot (more than PvE) for Pet Battles, and 99% of my matches are short and sweet. This is very rare, and I have not had any matches like this one :)

I was taking my "Healing Nightmare" team out for a spin *cue heckling*

Magical Crawdad
Blossoming Ancient
Singing Sunflower

Fought a guy that had a Harbringer of Flame as the lead pet. The healing bonus from Sunlight made the passive healing from its humanoid ability more than I could damage through using my safe rotation (was getting over 100 per turn).

Fight lasted around 300 turns before I left from boredom.

I think the Blossoming Ancient is too good and should be nerfed a bit. Photosynthesis is fine on pets without Sunlight, or on pets with limited damage like the Sunflower, but the Ancient having Sunlight, Photosynthesis, as well as a shielding attack makes him pretty ridiculous if you don't have a hard counter.

If I wanted to I could make a pet battle last for pretty much forever... or until i died from boredom. Granted it's vs an npc but still. On Aki use Blossoming Ancient. Keep sunlight and photosynthesis active, otherwise spam ironbark or whatever shield attack is and you will never die. Can't kill cricket either. Yeah i found this out back when playing around with Blossoming Ancient when he first came out.

That's a longer battle than I ever had! Good job beating him/her.

I recently had a 141 round loss. I had three mechanicals against Sunflower, Puddle Terror, Crawdad. I wondered when they would switch to an offensive rotation. They did not, but Sunlight crit me three times.
It was fun though, even when I had no chance. I just wanted to test defensive combos.

The longest I had was against a team with two sunflowers. I killed his third pet, and he killed two of mine. We wound up with my Xu-fu against his sunflowers. I have no idea how many rounds it took as he endlessly swapped the sunflowers, but I did notice that at every switch, they had slightly lower health. While I would have eventually won anyway, I finally got a well timed crit that disturbed his swapping sequence. After another set of swaps I killed the flower that was crit earlier, and then he fled.
