Today’s Team: Ghostlands Gladiators
S/S Rat (Scratch, Poison Fang, Survival)
H/P Toad (Water Jet, Healing Wave, Swarm Of Flies)
H/H Spirit Crab (Snap, Whirlpool, Shell Shield)
This team is part of a series I made called “map buddies”. For a time I got really into using wild pets, then I limited myself more by making teams of pets that only come from the same map. These three pets come from Ghostlands, of course. Other pets that come from Ghostlands are the Spider, Maggot and Snake, none of which I’m very impressed with. On this team both the Rat and Spirit Crab are solid choices. The Toad is somewhat of the weak link here, although it’s far from horrible. At 1627 hp with a 429 heal it might be able to take a few hits. There’s no set rotation of pets, I’ll just play off of what I think the opposing team will do.
There’s not a lot of power here, as I head into the battle I wonder where my damage will come from.
The Opposing Team:
P/P Harbinger Of Flame
S/B Ashleaf Spriteling
So far the Spirit Crab is 11-3-1 (a 73.3% win rate) since I started keeping track. I’m actually sort of glad that it has those three losses and the one draw to bring down its win rate. It’s one of my favorite pets and I don’t want to be guilty of over using OP pets. Still though, when the Spirit Crab shines it really does seem amazing. In this battle it was able to take out the Harbinger Of Flame and leave the Ashleaf Spriteling with only around 300 hp. Sure, the Harbinger Of Flame missed one Burn but that’s still an impressive feat. After my Spirit Crab expired I brought in my critter. My opponent made a decent enough move by casting Solar Beam right before death, but the Ashleaf Spriteling lived so I was able to swap to my aquatic to get Swarm Of Flies going before a DoT tick from the Rat finally killed the humanoid. Chrominius came out to first cast Howl. The 1627 hp of the Toad made it possible for me not to swap since Surge Of Power with Howl would not be enough damage to kill. Chrominius used Bite and my Toad used Water Jet. I expected the Surge Of Power so I swapped. It came as expected and didn’t kill my Rat so I was able to easily finish off the recovering dragon. Score one for the wild pets!
