Triple Blighthawk - Unbeatable?

Postby Iconyx » February 10th, 2013, 12:48 am

3 Ghostly Bites, 3 Lift-Offs, regular attacks doing 300-400 damage, plus 3-6 extra attacks from the Undead racial. Am I missing something, or is this a near-impossible team to counter?

Edit: Ghostly bite does 820 damage on some breeds - ridiculous.

Blighthawk is quite an annoying pet to deal with. After only facing it one time, I realized this and actually I never could find a rare and I used a battle stone on mine.

It is actually a staple of most of my pet teams and I think it is one of the most underrated pets in the game at current.

Ain't gonna probably work in 5.2 anymore as Ghostly Bite is getting 7 round cooldown.

It only takes one bite to make a difference

I should use my L25 P/S Blighthawk more often, I guess... :?

Blighthawk was superman prior to 5.1, but has been overshadowed by Fluxfires since then. It's still very strong, but I'd expect further changes to Ghostly Bite before 5.2 goes live. See here for the latest from PTR--they've put the cooldown back to 3 rounds, which almost certainly means it's going to get a damage nerf and/or the stun is going to be changed to something more punishing. Either that, or it's slipping through the cracks and Blighthawk will be worse than ever.

Also, if you like Blighthawk, try Ghostly Skull (spectral strike/ghostly bite) with Darkness.

Three blighthawks would be hard even with the new 7 round cooldown.

Ghostly Bite' s damage will be reduced by 20 percent in 5.2 is what I've read on the WoW pet battles forums.
