Today’s Team: Swarm Of Heroes
P/P Emerald Shale Hatchling (Burn, Poison Spit, Stoneskin)
P/P Sen’Jin Fetish (Shadow Slash, Immolate, Sear Magic)
H/P Shrine Fly (Scratch, Cocoon Strike, Swarm)
I’m really milking this “Heroes” combo of the elemental spider and the Sen’Jin Fetish. I even went out and got a P/P Emerald Shale Hatchling for some extra punch. It’s really fun to discover that a pet I thought was useless can actually do quite well in PvP. Like the teams of the past few days this team is based around DoTs and a double damage debuff, in this case Swarm. I’ll apply the DoTs and then hopefully amplify the damage with Swarm.
The two non-flying pets are slow. I’ve been running this team a lot with about every Stampeder/Swarmer I can get my hands on. My meta must be learning how to counter it.
The Opposing Team:
P/P Kun-Lai Runt
H/S Amber Moth
H/S Amber Moth
The Fetish started against the Runt and missed a Shadow Slash. It happens. I didn’t want to stay in to take the sure stun from Deep Freeze so I swapped to the Emerald Shale Hatchling but got stunned anyways. I went back to the Sen’Jin Fetish and took out the Runt but got taken to 0 hp. The first Moth came in and used Cocoon Strike so the undead turn was wasted. I brought the Emerald Shale Hatchling in to watch a Moth Dust miss. I got the DoT up then the other Moth was brought in. It also missed its Moth Dust so this was looking like rng was going to give me the win. The elemental and the flier went at it, the Amber Moth won. The Shrine Fly came in after the death of the Emerald Shale Hatchling to finish off the first Amber Moth with a Scratch. Then there was a problem. With no DoT up the Shrine Fly is fairly weak in this situation. It would have get all three rounds of Swarm off then a Scratch. I’ve won plenty of times this way but it’s usually very close. Finally a Moth Dust hit and put the Shrine Fly to sleep. The damage and loss of turn was too much to come back from. Tonight the Heroes lose.
