Don't forget that your knowledge and ability in these fights will make a difference, and if you use one of the addons that shows the enemy's spells, you will be able to easily figure out what will be used first, and make the necessary moves. Generally, I use the Teroclaw for opening, and have a "bomb" on the 2nd spot, and then my leveling pet on the 3rd slot, to get one shot in and then get XP from it. The "bomb" would be anything that can pop a large amount of damage, and I like the Eldridge, and the nexus Whelpling, or Stormborne Whelpling in those slots.
But, seeing what is coming, for example, allows you to adjust ... so watch this ... spider pops the Goo and your Teroclaw is stuck for a couple of rounds, and it will take a big hit ... heck, refresh your heal, for example, which is like thinking a step ahead. Likewise some pets that have double abilities, like Dive and Invis, and can go three rounds without taking an attack, and you need to take advantage of one of those rounds to gain yourself the heals if you know that you can not take the pet down ... which is the case many times with some healers, and you really need to switch to your bomb, but can't.
All in all, having a good choice and kinda knowing what you are going to fight, makes all the difference. If you know, that in a couple of places in the new expansion you are going to get 2 of those butterflies and one honey bee, you already know that you will be taking some serious damage, specially if one of them is a PS or a SS and they are green or blue. The other lesser two are not as difficult, but can still hurt if you do not know how to adjust.
So far, the preferred strategy I have seen on the new continent is the pets ability to make sure you can not swap pets, and your heals (as in Teroclaw) is not enough and that pet will take you down, specially if they are blue or green. I posted about this on another thread ... but it seems to be something that we have to learn to work through. But the fun is leveling all your other pets in Val'sharah with all those wabbits, chihuahuas (gleamhoof's!) and skunks ... nice and easy fights for good XP to level a lot of pets ... here I come pet bonus week ...
,,, ohhhhh poop ... I have no pets to level at all! They are all up!
