Today’s Team: Flaming Gobbo
P/S Treasure Goblin (Coin Toss, Wild Magic, Portal)
H/H Scourged Whelpling (Tail Sweep, Death and Decay, Plagued Blood)
H/H Fel Flame (Flame Breath, Scorched Earth, Conflagrate)

I felt that I hadn’t explored the Treasure Goblin as much I should so I decided to give it another whirl. Wild Magic can be a powerful move when combined with DoTs or field effects. Here I included two field effects: Death and Decay and Scorched Earth. These moves are different than regular DoTs because they effect only the pet in play. The plan is to get one or both of these moves going then bring in the Treasure Goblin to apply Wild Magic and Coin Toss to amplify the damage. Conflagrate can hit hard if needed and there’s also some synergy between the Fel Flame’s moves and Plagued Blood. This might work.

This team just doesn’t have any wow factor, it seems like it’s lacking something.

The Opposing Team:
B/B Golden Dragonhawk Hatchling
H/H Blue Dragonhawk Hatchling
H/B Phoenix Hawk Hatchling

The Battle:
032314AAgain the queue is screwing with me. I bring Scorched Earth and all three pets can benefit from it, lovely. I began with my Scourged Whelpling who had to face the Golden Dragonhawk Hatchling. This was a relatively uneventful encounter. I used Death and Decay then Plagued Blood before spamming Tail Sweep, the first dragonhawk just spammed Claw. The Scourged Whelpling won the encounter due to the undead racial, on its extra turn it laid down another Death and Decay against the Blue Dragonhawk Hatchling. The Treasure Goblin came in to use Wild Magic then Coin Toss which buffed the Death and Decay to around 170 damage. The Treasure Goblin used Portal to swap to the Fel Flame on the turn that the drgonkin bonus popped up. The damage buffs started to pay off, it only took two Flame Breaths to finish off the second dragonhawk. The Phoenix Hawk Hatchling came in to take a Flame Breath and Conflagrate before killing the Fel Flame. The Treasure Goblin now had to walk into a dragonkin bonus. This was going to be close. I used Wild Magic and survived the Claw before a Coin Toss finished off the Phoenix Hawk Hatchling for a very narrow win. The team I was facing is hardly the cream of the crop yet I barely escaped with the win. I guess it’s back to the drawing board.
