Today’s Team: Julius Seizure
P/P Sen’Jin Fetish (Shadow Slash, Immolate, Sear Magic)
S/S Sporeling Sprout (Jab, Leech Seed, Crouch)
P/P Warbot (Missile, Minefield, Extra Plating)

My current favorite pet is the Sporeling Sprout. It’s always been somewhat tanky but thanks to the Crouch buff it got even tankier. I use the S/S breed to maximize Crouch with speed. If the Sporeling Sprout is faster than the enemy pet it receives the benefits of crouch the same turn. When used like this the Sporeling Sprout will have Crouch up for four out of five turns. The plan is to keep Crouch up and spam Jab. When I put it like that it seems so boring. The Sen’Jin Fetish is used as a counter to both Anubisath Idols and Unborn Val’kyrs. The Warbot is a powerful pet that’s tanky in its own way thanks to Extra Plating. Of course it has Minefield. There’s no big over-arching strategy here, I’m just going to use what pet seems right to counter what I think the enemy will do. That can be a fun way to battle.

I have to be smart about when to lay down the Minefield since I have no swapper.

The Opposing Team:
P/P Bonkers
H/P Ghostly Skull
P/S Pandaren Monk

The Battle:
022514AThis one will be easy to report. The Warbot was its amazing mechanical self, taking out Bonkers and brining the Ghostly Skull to 0. It did it by using Extra Plating, laying down a Minefield then spamming Missile. It didn’t miss any Missiles and my opponent made an unnecessary swap. After the Warbot died the Sen’Jin Fetish came in to kill off the Pandaren Monk. The worst part of the battle was I never got to use my Sporeling Sprout. Another win for the Warbot!

    Mmh, a medicore team in my opinion . Nice idea, but no chance against the usual “Valkyr+Death Adder” combo on my server.

      I wouldn’t say no chance. Fetish cleanses curse of doom and haunt and blind. Warbot halves damage from curse of doom and haunt while laying a nice strong against beast set of landmines for those nasty death adders and then also has strong missile against death adders.

      Sporeling Sprout can be pretty tanky against the death adders, but yeah, jab is weak against beasts. At least sprout can also crouch against a Valk if necessary if they end up against each other.

    I too am seeing a great number of “Valkyr+Death Adder” teams, next time you see one perhaps you could blog it? I was going to use your team as soon as I level the pets…not very experienced so would love to see more on it.

    H/H Spirit Crab (Snap, Whirlpool, Shell Shield)
    S/S Mongoose Pup (Gnaw, Survival, Dive)

      I just blog about what I come across in the queue, but chances are I’ll see one of these in the future :)

        Yeah I saw your blogs with your counter teams but then the enemy isn’t the dreaded enemy lol. It’s going to come up eventually. In the meantime I levelled your cheese team to try it out and figure out the weaknesses.
