Today’s Team: Supermodel
S/S Bronze Whelpling (Arcane Slash, Crystal Prison, Lift-Off)
H/S Young Talbuk (Horn Gore, Tough N’ Cuddly, Flurry)
S/S Sky-Bo (Flamethrower, Sticky Grenade, Decoy)

I’ve been having a lot of fun with the Young Talbuk. It has Flurry to put a beating on undead, a shield to reduce damage and a reasonably powerful normal attack. I chose the Bronze Whelpling to make my team a bit more competitive. I realized I have a big weakness to mechs since Arcane Slash is weak to mechs and mech attacks will do strong damage to me beast. I wanted some elemental damage because of this. While looking through elemental attacks I noticed Sky-Bo, with Flamethrower being strong against mechs.

Mechanicals may still be an issue.

The Opposing Team:
H/P Twilight Spider
H/H Mini-Thor
H/S Mojo

The Battle:
040515AMini-Thor is sort of scary with all of that health and move Minefield. As with any pet that can lay mines, one of the first things that I do is try to figure out how I can mitigate the mine damage. Do I have an elemental to eat the weak damage? Do I have a cleanse? Do I have a block? Why yes, I do have a block. The battle just got a lot easier for me thanks to Sky-Bo. I just needed to make sure that I always brought in Sky-Bo to face Mini-Thor so that I could cast Decoy right after the mines went down. Then I could swap on the next round and the damage from the mines would be blocked.

This ended up being a 28 rounder with a lot of swapping so I think I’m going to cut the blow by blow short. Basically there was a ton of swapping. Whenever Mini-Thor came in I would swap to Sky-Bo to create the scenario described above. I was able to block two mine explosions this way. The Bronze Whelpling was a able to provide a lot of control throughout the battle and it was able to force the frog into some swaps due to fear of strong Lift-Off damage. My opponent fled in round 28 and I had not even used the Young Talbuk yet, which goes to show how much swapping, stunning and blocking that was going on.

    Its so rare in PvP to face no weather , no decoy and no undead in one game. Your meta has a lot more variety than mine. I like your team here though.

    I have done a fair bit of PvP on Illidan and Madoran (before Draenor and a bit since)..I’ve often wondered if realm pop has an influence on the battle group you face. Illidan had few experienced players with good pets. Madoran was a mix.

    Sometimes when I’d flip realms, I’d face the same player (can tell by pet names/player mog)…this makes me wonder if groups are randomly assembled by day regardless of realm or faction…not that it matters much

      The meta I’m in is very much like that, it’s all undead and MPD. You have to play foul teams, which means I have to run away a lot when facing friendlier teams, or Id feel too dirty. Beating up someone’s green cat with my MPD ugh, usually I fight until the next move would kill them and then leave and requeue in hopes of finding the cheese players.
