Also one of my favorite pets to walk around with.

Squids and tentacles, i like that Blizz is throwing in some more of the freaky creatures.

Useful against Aquatic pets because of the Magic racial and Syd's aquatic abilities can benefit from Cleansing Rain that the enemy often uses, or cast your own Cleansing Rain :)


To beat him at Darkmoon, i use Anubisath Idol, keep using Crush and always use Deflection when his Whirlpool counter is down to 1, Syd should die easily this way.

I've been watching Batman: The Animated Series, and S02e23 "The Man Who Killed Batman" has a small-time wanna-be mafia guy named Sid. The goons tell him if he does well they'll give him a Mob name: Sid the Squid. :D

I know you are all going to wish me gratz because I got this pet on my first successful fight. Total failed attempts had to be at least 20. I had to level the right pets to get the winning combination.  I can't wait to level this puppy and try him/her out. Only started pet battling about a week ago. I'm feeling very lucky and wish to you all the same luck.

For the Fight: First, pray to RNGesus.


Your Team:

MPD - Breath, Thunderbolt, Decoy

DMZ - Missile, Bombing Run, Decoy

DMT - Missile, Shoch & Awe, Ion Cannon


MPD - Hit with Breath, drop a Decoy to block Whirlpool, spam Breath until Syd's dead. Swap to DMZ.


DMZ - Drop a Decoy, throw a Bomb, spam Missile until Pointy dies. Bring back MPD.


MPD - Drop a Decoy, swap to DMT.


DMT - Missile/Shock Otto down to ~1000HP, then Ion Cannon FTW.

Syd is very useful for cleaning up Decoys, blocking, and setting up aquatic damage to do an extra 25% more damage. Flurry (unless I am mistaken) is the only attack that doesn't just stop once it hits a block so you can lose your shield really fast against a rabbit or fjord worg. While he isn't big on damage he does have allot of utility in certain groups. He can clear the way through defenses and take on elementals fairly easily. I wish he would mind control other players....

In my opinion a perfect pet to stop the healing teams. they are all elemental so they will hate the tidal wave. also you are able to counter their sunny day with its own water animation. adding bubble for two attacks blocked is just perfect.

Finally got syd to drop. Then forgot about him when I swapped toons. Had a small panic attack when I could not find him in my list. Did a face plam, swapped back and added him.

I got him today. He is the coolest looking pet. He defeated Erris's pets (Moon, Mouthy, and Carl) all by himself with tidal wave, whirlpool, and the healing spell.

To beat this pet's team as the NPC in Darkmoon Faire, I use Clockwork Gnome with Turret, Darkmoon Tonk with Minefield kept up between pets, and the third slot can be used to level a pet.

Second attempt at darkmoon faire today.  Will work on power-leveling him since he looks like a good one to get to level 25!

I got Syd on my first try, and he is a very cool looking pet. I'm thinking Syd the Squid might be a good addition to Dreadful teams. He will be able to protect/add Cleansing Rain, and add some heals/block to take some hits.


I'm going to see how Syd does tonight in PvP battles

I use Iron stralette to take out both of the beasts all you have to do is windup, supercharge and then windup again and you one shot any of his beast.

Then you can use any combination too take out syd since hes not that tough

This tiny squid seems to enjoy wearing pants, but where in the world would you find some that fit?
