Today’s Team: June Cleavers
P/S Yu’la (Jadefire Ligtning, Celestial Blessing, Life Exchange)
H/H Weebomination (Cleave, Consume Corpse, Haymaker)
H/P Snarly (Rip, Surge, Blood In The Water)

Rationale:
The Weebomination is surely one of the best pets introduced in WoD. With 1806 health and the undead racial it is very durable. This allows it to use the AoE move Cleave many times, extensively damaging the enemy team’s back line pets. What if it could survive for even longer? That’s what Yu’la is for. She adds a little bit of AoE damage herself with Jadefire Lighting, but more importantly she’ll leave a Celestial Blessing for the Weebomination, allowing it an even longer life and thus more Cleaves. Snarly will sweep up anything that’s left over.

Concerns:
Spamming Cleave can get boring. I chose the risky move set on Yu’la, rather than the conservative move set of Breath and Lift-Off. I call it the risky move set because sometimes it fails miserably when Life Exchange can’t be used at a good time.

The Opposing Team:
S/S Dragon Kite
S/B Clockwork Gnome
P/P Lil’ Bad Wolf

The Battle:
012215AAlmost every time that I face a Dragon Kite and Clockwork Gnome team I lose a round from the timer running down. It happened again this battle. I started with Yu’la against the Dragon Kite. I felt that my chances were good in this battle since Lightning would help my AoEs a lot, plus I had strong attacks against both the wolf and the kite. Yu’la cast a few Jadefire Lightnings before getting stunned by the Volcano. I let Yu’la die while stunned then brought in the Weebomination to receive the Celestial Blessing. I wanted to take this team out as fast as possible so I skipped Consume Corpse and just spammed Cleave. Each round took forever thanks to the lightning animation and eventually this caught up with me; the Weebomination’s undead round was skipped thanks to the timer running down. The Lil’ Bad Wolf had been killed by all of the Cleave damage, so it was now Snarly against a barley surviving Dragon Kite and a low health gnome. It was close, but Snarly managed to take out the gnome and win the battle with a final Surge against the Dragon Kite. That’s exactly why he’s the sweeper. ¬†Two rounds were lost yet this team still managed to win. Not bad.
