I'd recommend tiny harvester vs his bear, strand crab vs his flower, and level up the phoenix hatchling to kill the mechapeep. The only question is whether the harvester can out-dps the bear's heal: the other two matchups should be very favorable.

::checks your pet list::

I'd go with Darkmoon Tonk or Zeppelin for the bear. Strider will be easily taken out by the Emerald Shale Hatchling. Lashling need an Aquatic pet, so any frog pet should make quick work of it.

Hope that helps! :mrgreen:

OK bear Tiny Harvester - spam demolish and pray it doesnt miss too much
Mechanopep- Emerald Shale hatchling your best elemental but you should level it to at least 23 before using him I find that anything more than 2 levels you just miss too much. You might try your crab but i find its aquatic attacks weak.
Lasher - Elemental- The counter to all elemental are snails Damage reduction from being a critter and higher damage aquatic move in dive

One pet I really love for this fight is the Fluxfire Feline breed 5. He literally one shots the bear and the mechanical, then can almost get the elemental down before dying. I use the Feline to powerlevel lowbies on this fight.

clockwork gnome dominates the bear, can actually go with a kun lai runt and an anubisath idol or flayer youngling. they easily roll through him

speed/speed Fluxfire feline, (lowbie pet that i'm boosting) and power/speed eternal strider works like a charm for me :)

edit. assuming ofc that the pets come up in correct order, bear, mechanopeep and the lasher, but i don't recall them ever coming in any other order? :?:

I use the Darkmoon Zeppelin against the bear, Fel Flame against the mechnopeep, and Rapana Whelk against the lasher.

I try to keep up the Decoy ability against the bear as much as possible, and always having a bomb ready to drop onto it. I end up passing through the stuns, but so long as the decoy's up, it's not a big problem. I favor dps'ing over setting up Decoy once the bear uses Hibernate, though.

Fel Flame doesn't have any problem against the mechnopeep. Just dps, dps, dps.

The lasher does minimal damage against the whelk since elemental attacks are weak against critters.After the lasher casts its roots ability , I have my Rapana Whelk use Dive. While underground the root attack misses on the next turn and my pet can avoid that burst damage. Since Dive is the only strong attack against the lasher, once it's on cooldown I just keep up the dot and use Absorb until the lasher is either dead or Dive is off cd.

Have never lost with this group.

Clockwork Gnome vs the Bear and a bit of the Mechapeep
Fel Flame vs the Mechapeep and a bit of the Lasher
Mojo/Crawdad to finish out the Lasher.

I like mojo and he can out damage the Lasher's healing but I found the Crawdad works just as well...just takes a bit longer.

Flayer Youngling or Fluxfire Feline work great on the bear too
Any elemental with good damage output will do vs Mechanopeep
Last pet is a joke compared to the first two.. any aquatic would do I think

I use my Darkmoon Tonk against the bear, Emperor Crab against the lasher and Water Waveling against the mechanopeep.

I have had such good success with my crab that when I found a second rare one of the same breed, I tamed that one as back up.

If he tries to start with something other than the bear, I forfeit and restart the fight... and do the same if he stuns my pet the first turn.

I'm using

Clockwork Gnome /w Rocket vs the Bear
Felflame or something with Reflect vs Beakmaster (like Anubisath)
Blighthawk vs the last one, no special pet thing I just blast it with the ghostly strike (as the bird just annihilates almost everything with this instant 800-1000 hit)

I had much more (!) with the Nearly Headless guy.
