Today’s Team: Dulled School
H/P Blighthawk (Infected Claw, Ghostly Bite, Lift-Off)
S/S Alpine Hare (Flurry, Dodge, Burrow)
P/P Death Talon Whelpguard (Shadowflame, Whirlwind, Clobber)
I’ve been using rabbits a lot these past few days so I chose that first. I was scrolling through pets looking for something interesting when the DTW caught my eye. I realized that humanoids might give me trouble so I chose the Blighthawk to counter them. That’s how this less than amazing team came to exist. So far it’s won more than it’s lost, but I haven’t faced too many top teams. With no real overall game plan I’ve just been playing off of what I think my opponent will do. Sometimes that’s a good thing; it doesn’t bog you down with a set or obvious rotation.
Clobber is a risky move on a 260 speed pet. Darkflame is probably a better choice, but the little kid is like “I want! I want!”. Kid 1 – adult 0. Lift-Off wouild be better on a faster blighthawk, but I don’t have the P/S version. This isn’t the first time I’ve wanted a P/S Blighthawk, but Western Plaguelands seems… so… far. And that would require me to leave my garrison. Who does that anymore?
The Opposing Team:
S/S Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling
P/S Alterac Brew Pup
H/P Macabre Marionette
Man, I really don’t like losing the daily. Even worse, I hate long battles because they’re too hard to report. The final Decoy led to my loss. I ended up taking down the first and the second Decoy with my rabbit, but I let the little guy die before the third went down. I thought that I would be able to finish the battle before the third Decoy, but the battle took longer to end than I thought it would. I guess that means I screwed up, doh.
Overall it was a decently played battle with a lot of counters and swapping. At one point the ABP got off a really powerful group heal, I surprised at how much it healed for. I need to remember that when I’m trying to come up with group heals to counter AoEs, as that’s a pet that I’ve overlooked. Wow, I just looked at the tool tip, it heals 370 health per pet. How did I overlook this? Now I don’t feel as bad about losing since I learned something good from it; this battle pointed me in the direction of the ABP, so I can take something positive from it.
