Shikon01 late reply. I can't really say I have any hate list as such, but I can tell you my two least favourite pets from this thread. Porcupette and Ashleaf Spriteling. I don't think the Porcupette is very valid, not even with Spiked Skin buff. And with the Ashleaf Spriteling I'm thinking it's probably just me and not the pet as such.Shikon01 wrote:Hey guys !!! I love reading your battle thread here and I'm learning a lot so my question to you is, if you had to pick your LEAST FAVORITE ( or should I say the pet you would throw on your HATE list to suffer w/ in a battle ) what would it be and why ? If there's 2 go ahead and name it to play it
On to Toxic Wasteling. The only real problem with Toxic Wasteling is that it only comes in one breed and that breed is pretty bad. Though it is the second most powerful slime, weighing in at 293 power, it is very slow(244 speed). Problem with this is that there are three other slimes, with same ability set, to chose from and two of them has better breed options. Only poor Disgusting Oozeling, also only coming in one breed, is worse off(289 power, 241 speed). If you want power Jade Oozeling is superior with 325, only trade off is about 120 health less(while still being above the 1400 average). Both Jade Oozeling and Oily Slimeling has faster breeds so you don’t have to much around with the 244 crowd.
The Slimes are very nice against birds, and since fliers are generally very fast it’s actually not a problem to have a low 244 speed. Trouble is when facing non-fliers. 244 is the same as Idol and certain popular Undead pets, and Crab family. In my taste this is just too slow, I’d rather have at least 260 speed but thats just me.
The Slimes have the powerful Creeping Ooze and can really put the hurt on pets with Expunge. But I was thinking of going another route. I recruited a S/S Fiendish Imp. Burn/Immolation/Nether Gate. My battle plan was to cast Immolation, then switch to the Wasteling. And with Acidic Goo(dot plus 25% damage) and Corrosion(dot plus 28 damage) boosting the dots and Immolation I think we could see some nice damage. Then Ooze Touch with the added bonuses(25% and +28 damage) would really start to hurt.
Third pet I chose the P/P Minfernal just to have someone not relying on dots with powerful punches, good defence and avoidance move. Yes I’m really liking this one more and more. This actually worked really well. Didn’t lose any matches this morning, but by some fluke I didn’t run into anyone with Sandstorm or shell-type moves(even the emperor crab I faced didn’t go with shell).
The Wasteling is pretty good, it didn’t make a fool out of itself, but if you want slimes I do think there are better options out there.
Edit: I have now faced an Idol with Sandstorm. I had to use my Minfernal to take him out(damn Idol didn't miss a single hit during sandstorm). But I didn't do enough damage, or have my Minfernal left, to handle the Blighthawk with Consume Corpse, so it inded in a draw.
