Five Wins Or Bust
I’ve been lazy regarding the blog, so much so that I even missed the two year anniversary of the “daily” a few days ago. Sad. I haven’t been lazy about documenting my battles, however; I’ve almost reached my goal of one thousand battles on my spreadsheet. MPD, Unborn Va’lyr and Graves are by far the three most common pets, with only the valk being somewhat of a surprise. Undead are still king when it comes to winning, dragons still suck. Enough of that, I’ll get to a proper write-up about itwhen I’m finished. For now, let me try now to get too owned like earlier this morning.
Battle 1: Four Is Next (4-1)
Ghastly Kid, Chi-Chi, Cinder Pup
vs. Peddlefeet, Clockwork Gnome, Son Of Sethe
A word of advice to all Peddlefeet users: don’t eat the Haunt. Another word of advice: If you do eat the Haunt then don’t let Chi-Chi add Wild Magic to your already dire situation. Add in some good luck with the triple hits from Fire Quills and this on was a no contest. I played lazily at the end, letting the Clockwork Gnome have the satisfaction of killing my Cinder Pup. I should have remembered my dislike for the silly mech and denied it the pleasure. Son Of Sethe teams can be really tough if played well, but this one wasn’t an issue.
Battle 2: All The Kids Grow Reefer (8-1)
Ghastly Kid, Chaos Pup, Scalded Basilisk Hatchling
vs. Skunky Alemental, Lifelike Mechanical Boar, Soul Of The Aspects
I think that the Twilight Fiendling may have some competition for the worst PvP pet: the Skunky Alemental. I suppose that when rng doesn’t go the way of any pet that relies on rng it makes the pet look bad, but when Inebriate doesn’t cause misses then the Skunky Alemental is a joke. Ok, I officially nominate this pet for the most horrible PvP pet.
Battle 3: Agent Purple (34-8-1)
Bone Serpent, Twilight Fiendling, Nightshade Sproutling
vs. Lil’ Bling, Mechanical Scorpid, Menagerie Custodian
My first thought was “oh no, three times the mech racial”, but then a Demolish miss against my Bone Serpent made me question the viability of the team that I was facing. I brought in my Twilight Fiendling just in case a Demolish hit and something odd happened: the magic pet kicked some serious butt. It took out the Menagerie Custodian and the 260 speed Mechanical Scorpid. No really, it did. I rechecked the logs to make sure that what I stated was true, and the logs showed that the magic racial was useful against Lock-On and Wind-Up, a few coin tosses were won and Adrenal Glands gave the Twilight Fiendling something to do while blinded. Take that Skunky Alemental!
