Today’s Team: Remurkification
P/P Murkalot (Blessed Hammer, Shieldstorm, Righteous Inspiration)
S/S Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling (Breath, Thunderbolt, Decoy)
H/S Kovok (Poison Fang, Pheromones, Puncture Wound)
Showcasing the utter ridiculousness that our once beloved pet battles have become.

Apply Poison Fang then Pheromones. Swap to Murkalot. Righteous Inspiration. Thunderbolt. Win. Okay, there’s a few more steps but that’s the general plan for opening.

My real concern is that I’m going to face a new pet battler and scare them away. What I’ve been doing is running fun teams until I encounter a Murkalot/Kovok team then switching to my own Murkalot/Kovok team. Unfortunately, what often happens is I’ll get a non-fotm team with my Murkalot team and absolutely obliterate them.

The Opposing Team:
H/P Darkmoon Tonk
P/P Emerald Proto-Whelp
P/P Harbinger Of Flame
A collection of solid pets.

The Battle:
110913ASeven rounds, thats all it took. I stuck to the plan and started with Kovok, who had to face the Tonk. Poison Fang/Missile, Pheromones/Missile. Rather than swap I decided to use Puncture Wound and let the Tonk kill my Kovok. The Puncture Wound did some nice damage on the double hit before the Tonk killed Kovok. I brought in Murkalot to use RI. The RI swap had priority over the Tonk’s Ion Cannon so the Mechanical Dragonling had to eat the Cannon. By now the Tonk had used its Failsafe so when I used the RI’d Thunderbolt it finished off the Tonk and brought the other two pets to 7 and 80 hp (which were already low due to Pheromones). The Dragonling was faster than both so it killed them off as they came in. Damn that remaining 87 hp, making the battle last for an extra two rounds. A seven round battle, what compelling gameplay! Hey, I’ll look at the bright side, at least the write ups are easy now.
