Today’s Team: Do You Even Rain
S/S Jademist Dancer (Steam Vent, Rain Dance, Cleansing Rain)
H/P Blighthawk (Slicing Winds, Ghostly Bite, Cyclone)
H/H Spirit Crab (Snap, Whirlpool, Shell Shield)
While using the Twister as a counter to Murkalot I developed more respect for Cyclone. At close to a one-third chance to hit each pet for 113 damage it can put up some decent numbers. The damage will be even better with the help of Rain Dance which will increase the accuracy of Cyclone to 85% and give it a 50% chance to crit. I chose Acid Rain to add some synergy between the Crab’s Whirlpool and the Dancer.
With two undead pets I could run into some trouble against critters. I think the Spirit Crab will be able to take care of that problem. Slicing Winds is a questionable choice in lieu of Infected Claw. I’m taking it because aquatics could be a problem.
The Opposing Team:
P/B Kun-Lai Runt
P/S Living Fluid
I wanted to get things started with a Cyclone but my opponent started with the Runt. I couldn’t resist the strong damage so I began with a Ghostly bite that hit for 947 damage. The Blighthawk got chilled on that round so I swapped to my Crab. The Runt missed its Deep Freeze then tried to Thrash but the Crab’s shields made that somewhat ineffective. A Snap and a Whirlpool finished off the Runt. Murkalot came in to use Falling Murloc and Lash to kill my Crab but not before it rooted the murloc with a Whirlppol. Murkalot RI’d itself (it was rooted) but never got to use the buff thanks to another Ghostly Bite taking it out. Now I brought in the Dancer versus the Fluid, the Fluid definitely got the best of the Dancer and its weak attacks. Even so, the Dancer was able to enough damage before dying so that the Blighthawk was able to finish off the Fluid with a Slicing Winds and Ghostly Bite. I never got to use my Cyclone :(.
