Today’s Team: Old Butt Goodies
P/P Emperor Crab (Snap, Healing Wave, Shell Shield)
H/H Fledgling Buzzard (Thrash, Adrenaline Rush, Lift)
H/P Infected Squirrel (Stampede, Creeping Fungus, Consume)
Still having fun with the Infected Squirrel!

I will use the flyer as an anti-Adder. The Squirrel will be used to take down anything without shields. The Crab will be used to take down more resilient pets. This group of pets won’t win team of the year anytime soon but it’s fun to play with pets that I don’t usually use. I used to use the Buzzard on my team “Stuff That Flies” just for silliness but it performed better than expected. The Emperor Crab is a great pet according to many battlers but I haven’t used it much. I’m ready to give it another shot.

There’s not a lot of synergy here. With no real game plan I’ll have to play reactively, which I don’t really like.

The Opposing Team:
P/P Emperor Crab
P/P Twilight Spider
H/H Blighthawk

The Battle:
122013AI started with my Crab which had to face the Blighthawk. It cast Cyclone before I shielded. Then the Blighthawk swapped to the Emperor Crab. After taking a Snap on the swap it put down a Whirlpool as my Crab snapped again. Thanks to the head start and a crit my Crab won the battle of the Emperors. After the Crab died the Twilight Spider came in and applied its Brittle Webbing. I was pretty sure a Spiderling Swarm was coming next so I brought my flier in. After the Swarm did weak damage to my Buzzard the Blighthawk came back in to lay down another Cyclone. I hit three Thrashes twice in a row but I was afraid that wasn’t going to take the beefy undead down if it had Consume Corpse. I decided to put in the Squirrel to take down the Blighthawk. It turned out that there was no Consume Corpse to worry about. The Squirrel took out the Blighthawk and had an undead round to use on the Spider. I thought I had the battle wrapped up but I misclicked Fungus instead of Stampede. I put in the slow Crab but The Spider took it out in one round. My last hope was the Buzzard. I got Webbed and Swarmed but Thrash then Adrenaline then another Thrash finished off the Spider. My Buzzard had less than 200 hp remaining.

    I to have had a blast playing the Infected Squirrel. I’ve been bad and playing it with Jademist Dancer s/s and Death Adder s/s. Its been a lot of fun the past few days. Thanks for turning my on to Infected Squirrel. It’s stampede/fungus takes out 1 1/2 pets if I’m lucky.

    I tried out the Infected Squirrel with my Searing Scorchling and Onyxian Whelpling. With the exception of one rather cheesy Murkalot/Valk/Rag team, I’ve had nothing but success. Sandstorm also messes with the comp, but I can just change that weather with the Scorchling if need be.

    Sandstorm definitely gives the Fungus/Stampede combo some major problems. With both of your comps you can change the weather, I need to start carry a weather changer with the Squirrel since there have been more Idols lately.
