Today’s Team: Bel Biv D’adder
P/P Jade Oozeling (Absorb, Creeping Ooze, Acid Goo)
S/S Death Adder Hatchling (Poison Fang, Puncture Wound, Blinding Poison)
P/P Mechanical Scorpid (Barbed Stinger, Puncture Wound, Extra Plating)
Oh wow, there’s so much that can be done with this shiny new Mechanical Scorpid! I decided to go with the obvious poison team for the write-up today since I’m in a hurry. I’m a quest away from a level 3 lumber mill so I’m going to keep it short. The adder is here for its ability to poison. Hopefully the P/P Mechanical Scorpid can unload a Puncture Wound into a pet that the adder poisons. I’ve used the scorpid on a few teams with Wind-Up and Puncture Wound, but that can be tricky so I’m keeping it simple. I included the Jade Oozeling since flyers are a soft counter to all of my beast damage and elementals counter the mech; the Jade Oozeling counter both with Acid Goo and Creeping Ooze.
With all of my DoTs a sandstorm or shield will be a major PITA.
The Opposing Team:
H/H Magical Crawdad
Three pets that are either broken or debatably broken, you should not be proud of any victory. You will hear me complain about traps until the end of time. I will be on my death bed asking my grand children “did they fix traps yet? No? $#@% rag! I wanted to keep it short, but this 45 round battle was anything but that. I was worried about shields, well the dirty crawdad had shields along with Wish. Ugh. I’m not going through the blow by blow for 45 rounds, I’ll say that I was never really in contention to win, besides one bright spot where my mech scorpid crit. I got Barbed Stinger to proc only one out of many, many attempts. In this battle I would have been much better off with Wind-Up. Just to show me what type of person my opponent was, rather than kill me off my opponent cast Wish and refreshed their shields just to stall a bit and gloat. Hey, at least I killed two pets. Just for the record, I immediately requeued with Beaking Out (a clonedance/Junglebeak team) and destroyed them. Even with Magma Wave to get rid of the Cyclone it was an easy win that made the crawdad run. Revenge.
