Today’s Team: Leviathan Scorchling
B/B Leviathan Hatchling (Tail Slap, Poison Spit, Primal Cry)
P/S Son Of Sethe (Plagued Blood, Touch Of The Animus, Drain Blood)
H/H Fel Flame (Flame Breath, Scorched Earth, Conflagrate)
I strayed from my initial plan of waiting until the new pets were up on the auction house at an reasonable price by taking a run through Black Temple. I was very pleased when the Leviathan Hatchling dropped off the first boss. I don’t think this pet will be changing the meta anytime soon, but an aquatic with Primal Cry peaked my interest. Why not put it with the Son Of Sethe and Fel Flame combo? It may be able to get some heals from the Poison Spit and if a pet with TOTA tries to back line then Primal Cry can still tag it for the heal.
This team has won a few but also lost a few. So far it hasn’t been impressive. That’s okay, it’s more about using a new pet.
The Opposing Teams:
H/H Ghastly Kid
S/S Flayer Youngling
S/S Lil’ Bling
Can you believe I won without even using the Son Of Sethe? I assumed that the Ghastly Kid would start so I began with the Leviathan Hatchling. My opponent didn’t like the idea of the kid doing weak damage from the get-go so the undead pet was immediately swapped out for Lil’ Bling. Cool, a free turn. I used the free turn to cast Primal Cry, so the Lil’ Bling was slower than my aquatic. Poison Spit was used on the mech, leaving ihim with a strong DoT. Great start. Lil’ Bling made a rocket so I swapped to my elemental to take weak damage. The rocket hit weak, then my opponent kept Lil’ Bling in for a Scorched Earth and then Conflagrate, ouch.
After Failsafe was activated Lil’ Bling went to the back line, being replaced by the Ghastly Kid. I went right back to my aquatic pet. Again the undead pet wanted nothing to do with the aquatic so after one Ghostly Bite my opponent tried the Flayer, which took a Primal Cry on the swap. Now the Flayer Youngling was slow, making it not as nearly effective as it could have been. The Primal Cry also took out Lil’ Bling on the back line. At this point I was so far ahead that all I had to do was clean up. As I mentioned before I was able to do so without even using my undead pet.
