Brittle Webbing Counter

Postby Grizz083 » November 17th, 2016, 11:07 pm

Is there any way to really shut this ability down long enough to kill the pet using it?
*Edit: I've already thought of dodge, burrow, blocks, and similar avoidance abilities. Like stoneskin does with stampede, anything that does the same to brittle webbing?

Consume Magic? I haven't tried it, but it seems like it might work.

Best way to counter it, is still with a sandstorm - ofc it doesnt 100% negate the effect but it reduces it enough.

Generally speaking, you can just go with Stoneskin, Shell Armor, or such flat-value blocks to negate the damage.

You can also safely use defensive moves, non-damaging status attacks (like Stone Prison) and delayed damage sources (like Doom or Geyser) without taking any immediate damage.

Conversely, DoTs, multi-hit attacks, or being affected by shreds such as Black Claw is definitely deadly.

Other options are dispelling it (via Consume Magic, preferably) or going with Haunt, as being dead will negate its damage even though you have a DoT ticking - but bear in mind that this will freeze the duration on Brittle Webbing, so it'll be active when your pet comes back to life.

Well my longest pet battle yet was 8 hours :)=
And cmon the 10% miss chance sandstorm brings is not as bad as its advantages are good.

Aka Darkness teams?....
