Today’s Team: Beaking Out
P/P Junglebeak (Peck, Rain Dance, Nocturnal Strike)
H/P Blighthawk (Infected Claw, Ghostly Bite, Cyclone)
S/S Jademist Dancer (Steam Vent, Rain Dance, Acid Rain)
This is an attempt to use the Junglebeak on a clonedance team. In case you are unaware, the clonedance strategy uses Cyclone together with Rain Dance to give Cyclone much better chance of hitting and critting all three of the enemy pets. Cyclone is normally 35% accuracy but Rain Dance brings it up to 85%, with a 55% chance to crit. I think this could be an interesting team because the Junglebeak could be used as a sweeper on a traditional clonedance rotation (Cyclone, Ghostly Bite, swap to Jademist Dancer) or be used in place of the Jademist Dancer as the second pet. I’m going with Nocturnal Strike in the third slot because it seems so awesome to have a 100% accuracy Nocturnal Strike when combo’d with Rain Dance, but I think in the long run it might be more prudent to have the avoidance of Lift-Off, especially since Lift-Off hits at 100% now. That would waste a round of Rain Dance if you cast it first, though. I’ll have to see how it plays out, this will only be my second battle with the Junglebeak so I don’t have much experience yet.
The Opposing Team:
H/S Ashwing Moth (level 23)
S/B Bloodsting Wasp (level 23)
H/P Dread Raven
A clonedance is hard to beat with a team of full 25s, good luck with those two level 23s on your team. I started with the Blighthawk and decided to go with the traditional swap to the Jademist Dancer. My opponent really only had one chance to win, and that was the chance for Moth Dust to put my pets to sleep. It didn’t happen. Cyclone, swap, Acid Rain, Rain Dance, Steam Vent then Steam Vent resulted in a dead wasp and a lot of back line damage. I brought the Junglebeak in for some screenshots which was arrogant of me because the Dread Raven has a strong attack against flyers. I took one Shadow Talons on the Swap, healed/buffed with Rain Dance then killed the Dread Raven with Nocturnal Strike. The moth fled. I’m interested to see how this team will do against more worthy opposition. Not tonight though, I’m still not 100! I have some Nagranding to do.
