Hard hitting critters?

Post by Adrenalin » March 27th, 2016, 3:40 am

Are there any good (pvp) pets with strong critter attacks? Searching thru the top rankings and beyond (also separated by types), I couldn't find a high-rated pet with strong critter attacks. Since there is a lot of undead stuff running around, I find this kinda imbalanced, unless I overlooked something.

Thanks in advance.

The Red Cricket. 371 strength. He has a nuke, a heal, and cocoon strike.

You have to raise your rep. to best friends with Sho on the Tillers farm in Pandaria to get him. Well worth the grind, amazing critter. Mine's named Jiminy.

Something else you can do if you have the teams addon Rematch is the following search:

Set the Strong vs bar to Undead (Critter attacks are strong vs undead)
In the search bar type: power>324

That will list out all your strongest pets with critter attacks.

I have had good luck with rabbits/hares in pvp with flurry dodge and burrow. I have also had good luck with mice.

I had a triple frog team that had P/P frogs, that saw a few forfeits by Graves teams. Frogs have 2 critter attacks with Swarm and Tongue Lash, and undead damage is weak vs Aquatic pets. Plus, they have a heal which is rare among critters.

But the mentioned Red Cricket is a great choice, if you want huge critter power, and the heal is insane, because of the power, but it is kind of squishy, to offset the power.

Frogs are the only true undead counters indeed. Just be careful with the weather effect of [ability]Mudslide[/ability], if they have one.

I often see a [pet]Frostwolf Ghostpup[/pet] as a part of the preparations -- the strongest all-group heal ([ability]Haunting Song[/ability]), solid Critter damage and an undead round aswell have their advantages. Other features are situational, but not too silly.
