The Quick Three
I feel like using a Swamp Croaker, don’t ask me why.
Battle 1: Croak and Poke
Swamp Croaker, Lifelike Toad, Spirit Crab
vs. Silent Hedgehog, Amethyst Spiderling, Hydraling
I started with the Swamp Croaker, cast Bubble then back lined in exchange for the undead crab. The Spirit Crab then took out both beasts before perishing. Ahh, Spirit Crab, how I miss the days of you going two for one so very often. Every time I see the 312 damage from Snap I am painfully reminded of my crab’s downfall. In case you are unaware, the changes to hit rate and damage mechanics from 5.4 to WoD made 95% accuracy moves like Snap hit for 100% and do less damage. That little difference in damage made a big difference for my lovely crab. It’s still good, just not as much as it once was. After the beasts were gone my two frogs cleaned up the Hydraling. Your Shell Armor blocks a lot, sir, but my Bubble blocks everything.
Battle 2: Croak and Thrash
Swamp Croaker, Imperial Eagle Chick, Spirit Crab
vs. Wild Crimson Hatchling, Darkmoon Tonk, Fossilized Hatchling
Darn these dragons and their crazy racial! My Imperial Eagle Chick did a total of zero damage this battle. How did that happen? I brought it in to eat the dragon’s Lift-Off, which left it slower and ready to get hit by a dragonkin buffed Scorched Earth. For a moment I thought I made a bad call, but the Swamp Croaker was able to use its Bubble effectively once again to get some important damage off at the end of the battle. Good froggy.
Druid Of The Dance
Moonkin Hatchling Imperial Eagle Chick, Jademist Dancer
vs. Weebomination, Stunted Direhorn, Iron Starlette
This was a very, very weird battle. First of all, I had to change to an alliance toon because I wanted to use my Moonkin Hatchling and only my alliance version is level 25. Then when the battle started I realized that my Imperial Eagle Chick had somehow replced my Moonkin Hatchling. Not only that, but my Imperial Eagle Chick’s move set was all wrong now. Instead of Thrash, Adrenaline Rush and Lift-Off my chick had Slicing Winds, Hawk Eye and Cyclone. Luckily I hit enough Slicing Winds to put a serious beating on both the beast and the Weebomination. The Weebomination then tried to use Consume Corpse… and missed. Huh? The Stunted Direhorn was dead so there shouldn’t have been a miss. I remember when Wish used to miss back in the days of base dodge and miss chance, it was hilarious. This isn’t hilarious though because it seems like there’s a bug, not good. Weird times.
I just realized that my logs are worthless if they don’t show that Stunted Direhorn had died. I am certain that it was dead:
Bonus Battle: Druid Of The Dance
Swamp Croaker, Moonkin Hatchling, Jademist Dancer
vs. Unborn Val’kyr, Lil’ Ragnaros, Xu-Fu
I wanted to try queueing again to make sure everything was working properly and it was. Even better news was I got to face this team with three pets that I don’t care much for and I countered it well. The Swamp Croaker is a true super hero tonight. It took weak damage from the valk, did strong damage to Lil’ Ragnaros and could use Bubble to block Xu-Fu’s buffed attacks. The latter never happened, but I did get to waste Xu-Fu’s buff with a Clobber. I love doing that! The trap went off at a good time for me so it wasn’t game changing as it could have been. A great night overall for the Swamp Croaker, not a great night for Weebominations trying to heal.
