Celestial Calf

Postby Biscuit » December 3rd, 2016, 12:16 pm

After some sleepless nights and countless hours of farming mats, I finally scraped together my first ever one million gold.
And in the blink of an eye...it was gone.
Now all I have to show for it is a starry-eyed hippo.

Anyway, I'm here looking for suggestions on how best to utilize this little guy on a couple of PVP teams.
My thoughts so far...

Wicked Soul
Iron Starlette
Celestial Calf
(Haunt, wind-up combo, switch to calf, blessing, wish, switch to Starlette, wind-up combo again, etc)

Stardust
Yu'La
Celestial Calf
(Gimmick team. Just swapping pets into Celestial Blessing constantly and using Wish & Life Exchange)

Celestial Calf
Trunks
Xu-Fu
(Hard-hitting moonlight team giving both hitters a 50% DMG reduction)

Droplet of Y'Shaarj
Celestial Calf
Blightbreath
(Rain, breath til dead, deep bite spam with buffed weather, wish to stay alive longer)

Any other suggestions?

Hmm..I have to think more about it, but something the cover your Calf against MPD...Wicked Soul? or Fiendish Imp?
As a third member how about a flying pet...Mechanical Axebeak? (alpha strike, hawk eye, decoy)

Thanks! I'll add that to my Rematch teams.

Curious, why sleeping gas?
I always go with the toxic smoke since beasts are strong against breath.

Sleeping gas because it's strong against magic, unlike your other abilities.
I prefer running toxic smoke as well, in my own team: Blightbreath, Jademist Dancer, Emperor Crab.

Have fun with your new pet! Wish to have him, but hey I'm dutch and cheap. :P

While the logic behind running Sleeping Gas for its bonus against Magic is sound, I'd say it's not so great due to its awful damage -that is further prevented from scaling up due to cooldown- and its unrealiable CC potential, that suffers greatly from Blightbreath's low speed.

Even against a Magic pet, Toxic Smoke dishes out more damage, at least initially, and if you're going to run a Breath build you won't have too many opportunities to stack it into dealing meaningful damage.

Yeah, I agree. I can't see the celestial calf being any good in that team anyhow. But after celestial blessing you could do sleeping gas twice and setup acid rain, hope for stuns, don't us dreadful breath but swap to the jademist dancer for a surprise factor.

Sounds interesting.
I like the idea of swapping in a pet, getting the Blessing buff and then also having a decoy to throw out once the buff has expired. Especially on a flier who will be over 50% HP the whole time. Not bad. (This would work great with Stardust too)
I'll probably experiment with the 2nd slot even though the Ghostpup is one of my all time favorites.

Can't go wrong with him. ;)
Now the next question, what breed on the flier..
