Today’s Team: Necromancer Romancers
S/S Arctic Hare (Flurry, Dodge, Burrow)
H/H Lost Of Lordaeron (Shadow Slash, Arcane Explosion, Bone Prison)
H/P Trunks (Smash, Ethereal, Avalanche)
Oh yes, it’s another LoL and rabbit team. I think that I like this combo so much because it allows the Lost Of Lordaeron to win a lot, something that I’ve never been able to accomplish in the past. The LoL helps by covering two of the rabbit’s weaknesses: humanoids and flyers. I chose Bone Prison this time instead of Curse Of Doom since I find myself not using Curse Of Doom in many battles. There just doesn’t ever seem to be a good time to use it; the enemy pet’s health is either already too low or it has a way to avoid the CoD. I chose Trunks because I wanted a pet with some decent power with some attacks from a family that I didn’t already have. Smash and Avalanche fit the bill. Ethereal can’t hurt either.
The already lackluster magic racial is made worse with a high health magic pet.
The Opposing Team:
P/P Netherspace Abyssal
S/S Ore Eater
P/S Son Of Sethe
Yikes, one of the best teams of the current meta.
It was a longer than average battle so the logs don’t go all the way to the beginning and I don’t remeber which of my pets started against the Netherspace Abyssal. What I do remember is that there was a lot of swapping between my rabbit and LoL and my opponents Ore Eater and Netherspace Abyssal. I was really hoping to root the Ore Eater with Bone Prison so I could pound away with Shadow Shock but my opponent wouldn’t let it happen. Whenever my ghost came in to face the Ore Eater it would immediately swap back to the Netherspace Abyssal, then I would swap to my rabbit. This favored my opponent thanks to the DoTs being applied to me; I was still taking damage on all the swaps.
Eventually I wore the the Netherspace Abyssal down to 34 hp. It seemed like a good time for my opponent to bring in the Son Of Sethe for some big time heals from Touch Of The Animus or Plagued Blood. Perhaps my two AoEs were forgotten. An Arcane Explosion easily killed the Netherspace Abyssal on the back line. Very nice, but I was hardly out of the woods. I was able to use Bone Prison on the Son Of Sethe before my ghost died so the rabbit had a rooted and juicy undead target to attack. I ended up playing it safe and using Dodge on one of the rooted rounds but hit all three Flurry attacks on the next.
The Ore Eater came in to take weak damage from Flurry so I swapped to Trunks as the Ore Eater put up Shell Armor. I was really hoping that Avalanche would take out the Son Of Sethe on the back line but it fell seven health short as Trunks took a Body Slam. The Ore Eater cast Acid Touch then I was able to use Ethereal to avoid the second Body Slam. A Smash took out the Son Of Sethe as it swapped in, then I brought in my rabbit to die to the Touch Of The Animus on the immortal round. That left the Ore Eater versus Trunks, both with around 800 health. I saw the battle ending as Shell Armor/Avalanche, Body Slam/Ethereal, Acid Touch/Smash, Body Slam/Smash. I didn’t do the math, it seemed like it could go either way at that point. That is, until my Avalanche crit for around 750 damage through the Shell Armor. All it took was another Smash for the victory.
