Pet Battle Royale: Howl Bomb Throwdown

May 10, 2016
Pet Battle RoyaleWhile pet battling can be a good time, sometimes it's a lot of fun to think how our favorite companions might fare in a different kind of fight. The ring is ready for another Pet Battle Royale!

Here, we examine a few different battle pets and then you, the WarcraftPets community, vote to determine the winner.

Howl Bomb
The popular Howl Bomb strategy has shown up on the site before due to its effectiveness. The Unborn Valkyr brings a 25% damage buff with Unholy Ascension, after which the Pandaren Water Spirit uses Geyser then Whirlpool. Chrominius tops it off with a huge multiplier from Howl, and maybe a Surge of Power the next turn to finish off a big opponent. It’s an effective strategy, and a famous one among pet battlers.

Now, each of the pets on this stellar team is claiming they’re the reason it’s so effective and that they're really the sole pet deserving of that fame. It’s tearing the team apart, so it’s time for the Warcraft Pets community to decide which of these three pets deserves the win.

Here’s the tale of the tape...

Unborn Val'kyr

You Decide Who Wins!
So, WarcraftPets, who should win?

The easy money would be to immediately discount Snuffles, as his two opponents are technically unkillable demigods. However, his draconic lineage affords him a bit of invulnerability against Yao Shui. Since the first step being made to nerf this strategy is to place Geyser and Whirlpool in the same slot, the case can be made that perhaps Yao Shui has the right to call itself the main force in this particular strategy.

The wildcard is definitely Helene. While she is a fierce fighter, her divalicious nature means that anything can happen. She is especially prized on the Warcraft Pets site for her beautiful, unique model, but it remains to be seen whether The Rarest of Them All will even deign to show up to the battle.

Will it be Helene the Unborn Val’kyr, Snuffles aka Chrominius, or Yao Shui the Pandaren Water Spirit? Log into our forums and cast your vote to make your voice heard.

Voting ends May 21st, so don't delay in helping decide which pet takes all!
