Today’s Team: Amazing Larry’s Revenge
H/S Crystal Spider (Crystal Prison, Brittle Webbing, Spiderling Swarm)
H/P Mountain Skunk (Scratch, Perk Up, Bleat)
H/B Swamp Croaker (Water Jet, Swarm Of Flies, Bubble)
Vek reminded me of spiders the other day so I wanted to give the Crystal Spider another shot. With a 305 speed stun, Brittle Webbing and a move that benefits from the webbed effect it’s an interesting pet. When I was making a trial team to give the spider a whirl I really just threw in some random partners: the skunk and frog. Sometimes I get lucky with a thoughtless team like this; at first I thought I was onto something good with an 8-1-1 start. It turned out to be a fluke, eventually the losses started to pile up. It’s still a fun team to play and I like getting some experience with AoE heals. I hear there’s going to be a lot of AoE damage in WoD. Sucks.
Without a spammable normal attack the Crystal Spider can be tricky to use. There’s no synergy on this team.
The Opposing Team:
S/S Death Adder Hatchling
S/S Jademist Dancer
B/B Unborn Val’kyr
This person must have been bullied a lot on the playground.
Tuesday probably wasn’t a good day to go galavanting about the meta with a no synergy, no top pet team. I ran into this team and thought I was doomed for sure. I got the final pet down to 130 hp, which was a lot closer to winning than I thought I would come. The big problem was that I couldn’t get the skunk out to heal for fear of the adder. There’s really not a lot to say that hasn’t been said before. Haunt. Blinding Poison. Rain Dance. 5.4 all wrapped into one sad experience. I can’t wait for WoD so we can have… another top Haunt pet and stronger AoE damage. At least that’s what I’m hearing.
