Skavanged, I'm not sure how the Jade Owl makes it into your personal favorites list. Maybe it's because mine is a b/b, but I couldn't get any synergy going at all, and kept getting shredded by... well, everything. At one point I thought the Owl was going to solo a Lil' Bling, but then he didn't. And I lost. Again. Or maybe it was the abundance of dragonkin today. It's actually a tad on the unusual side to see so many dragons in my bg, but there the were, tails all up in my face with their slapping of my Owl.Skavenged wrote:Tuatha, maybe you'll have more luck with one of my personal Favs and one that I use quite a bit in PVE... the Jade Owl
At first I tried to incorporate him in an all jade team and teamed him with a Jade Oozeling and Jadefire Spirit. After four losses I switched it up to a clonekin/hawknado type team, just kept the jade connection with the Wild Jade Hatchling and Jademist Dancer. Failing miserably again, I abandoned the jade team but kept the clonekin strategy and switched the Dancer for Mr Wiggles (whose Uncanny Luck lasts longer than Rain Dance and is underutilized in clonekins, imo), and managed to take one out of five matches.
I swear it was a bad night to have a magic pet on your team, because that team was solid.
I decided I needed a humanoid to fend off the dragons and an aquatic to keep the ever potential valks at bay. But an Idol's sandstorm would mess up my slicing wind attack, and I can't not use demolish while it's hitting so well, so I couldn't go with the Idol. And the Flayer was a favorite back when deflect was reflect, and I just used him for my last "battle with that pet" challenge, so I had to find something outside of my comfort zone again. I had also been seeing a fair number of beasts, so tried the Darkmoon Tonk with Charge.
A fire breathing dragon will kill a Tonk with Charge, fyi.
I ended up with a Rotten Little Helper, Jade Owl, and Emperor Crab for two wins in four matches. That made it three wins in, I don't know, twenty-to-thirty-felt-like-forty matches. A miserable experience with that freaking owl.
Most memorable Jade Owl moment: using Adrenaline Rush so I could be faster than my opponent and then using Lift-Off to avoid a Geyser at 18 health, hitting to bring him to double digits and then dying for the loss.
Lio, I'm giving you a pass because you should have given Skavenged (the poster before your post) a pet to use. I'll give Skavanged a pet to use and you can take your revenge on me. (Btw, I saw that named Gazelle Fawn after I posted it. I thought you named it after an experience like that Jade Owl gave me. I'm glad you came up with a team worth exploring later!) Just remember, it's been 5 minutes and we're back to being friends...
Skavenged, that Death Adder Hatchling has raised the ire of your Cobra Hatchling. Show him he's still loved and let him win a few battles.
