Today’s Team: Just A Sheet
S/S Arctic Hare (Flurry, Dodge, Burrow)
H/H Lost Of Lordaeron (Shadow Slash, Arcane Explosion, Bone Prison)
S/S Enchanted Broom (Broom, Sweep, Wind-Up)

I’m currently enjoying a rabbit renaissance. The little bunny does so well against frequently encountered undead pets, plus it has the incredible avoidance combo of Dodge and Burrow. I made a high powered team with the bunny last night and it turned out to be extreme overkill so tonight I’m going to tone it down a bit. Since rabbits do weak damage to humanoids I want some undead damage so I will include the Lost Of Lordaeron. I also want some coverage against beasts, the broom has Wind-Up for that. A 325 speed forced swap should come in handy.

The Lost Of Lordaeron often does a poor job for me.

The Opposing Team:
P/S Crow
S/S Crow
P/P Dread Hatchling

The Battle:
040914BSometimes the queue hates you, sometimes it gives you three birds on a platter. The Lost Of Lordaeron is my favorite pet for for facing multiple flyers, and here I have three. The reason that I like it so much is because Arcane Explosion does strong damage to back line flyers. Since the LoL has so much health and the undead racial it can often cast Arcane Explosion five or six times, which is often enough to take a back line flyer to less than half its health.

040915CThat’s what I tried to do in this battle. I started with my Lost Of Lordaeron and planned on spamming Arcane Explosion until it died. It ended up getting off five of them, which wasn’t enough to get the back line birds below half health, but it got them both pretty close. I’m not feeling like words at the moment, so I’ll report it like this:

040915ARound 1: Call Darkness / Arcane Explosion
Round 2: Nocturnal Strike / Arcane Explosion
Round 3: Alpha Strike / Arcane Explosion
Round 4: Alpha Strike / Arcane Explosion (LoL to 0 health)

    Not directly related to this battle, but since other battlers often read the newest daily, I felt this was an appropriate place.

    The last two days in my queue there has been another battler who has been using three top tier pets (so a good team). It might be of use to others who are looking for a team or need some wins.

    S/S Fiendish Imp (Burn, Immolate, Gate)
    (don’t recall breed) Scourged Whelpling (Tail Sweep, Call Darkness, Dreadful Breath)
    P/P Emperor Crab (Surge, Heal, Shield)

    The team is good (ie beatable), but you often need to use some top tier pets to defeat it.
