Beasts of Fable Book II

book2

Again, since the whole reason for defeating the beasts is to get the bags, and it takes several battles to finish the quest;  your goal for the beasts below is to defeat them with optimal pets and do it as quickly as you can.

All of the teams below are found in the Pet Nukem section, but may be slightly varied.  These teams are pretty well optimized, but I’m always interested in finding fun ways to bring the opponent down.


Greyhoof (unbornTrample, Hoof, Roar)

Start with the Lantern and use Illuminate to turn the day into Sunny Weather.  Swap to your Abyssal and Explode.  Bring in your Bombling and use Zap once before you Explode.


Skitterer Xi’asunlight (Skitter, Water Jet, Flurry)

Start with the Lantern and use Illuminate to turn the day into Sunny Weather.  Swap to your Abyssal and Explode.  Bring in your Bombling and Explode.  If you use the H/H Abyssal (1725 health) the 2 Explodes should deal about 2000 damage.


Lucky Yi (Quick Attack, Perk Up, Uncanny Luck)rot

  • Sen’jin Fetish with Flame Breath, Wild Magic, and Rot
  • Stowaway Rat (300 speed or faster) with Scratch, Flurry, and Stampede
  • Carrion Rat (300 speed or faster) with Scratch, Flurry, and Stampede

The type of rats you use don’t particularly matter, they just need to be fast and have Stampede.  I just picked a couple of them that I had at max level.

Start with the Fetish and just use Wild Magic until you die.  Use Rot on your last undead racial turn.  Bring in a Rat and use Stampede until you die.  Bring in the other one to Stampede if you need it, but you shouldn’t.

It’s true that I use the same team 3 times in here, but it works so well!  Beasts that can’t heal are very susceptible to the Sunny Weather/Explode teams.  Sometimes with efficiency, comes boredom.  I’ll certainly be trying and using different teams to take down the beasts, but this makes it so you can do several of the Beasts without too many pets leveled up.


Ka’wi the Gorger (unbornMoth Balls, Super Sticky Goo, and Chew)

Start with the Lantern and use Illuminate to turn the day into Sunny Weather.  Swap to your Abyssal and Explode.  Bring in your Bombling and use Zap once before you Explode.


Kafisunlight (Gnaw, Headbutt, and Leap)

Start with the Lantern and use Illuminate to turn the day into Sunny Weather.  Swap to your Abyssal and Explode.  Bring in your Bombling and Explode.  If you use the H/H Abyssal (1725 health) the 2 Explodes should deal about 2000 damage.


Dos-Ryga (Frost Breath, Whirlpool, and Healing Wave)rot

  • Sen’jin Fetish with Flame Breath, Wild Magic, and Rot
  • Stowaway Rat (300 speed or faster) with Scratch, Flurry, and Stampede
  • Carrion Rat (300 speed or faster) with Scratch, Flurry, and Stampede

Nitun (Rake, Prowl, and Ravage)zandalari

Start with the Lantern and use Illuminate to turn the day into Sunny Weather.  Swap to your Abyssal and Explode.  Bring in your Bombling and Explode.  If you use the H/H Abyssal (1725 health) the 2 Explodes should deal about 2000 damage.


Chi-Chi, Hatchling of Chi-Ji: Round 2

chichi

Goal: Defeat Elite Pet with optimal pets

Chi-Chi, Hatchling of Chi-Ji’s Abilities:

  • Fire Quills
  • Ethereal
  • Tranquility

Your Team:

This strategy does hinge on an ability that has a 95% chance of hitting so it should work most of the time, but we all know that pet abilities tend to miss at very inopportune times.  You can also have a Voodoo Figurine as backup with the same move set as the Fetish just in case it misses.

Start with the Fetish and just keep casting Wild Magic until you die and get your free Undead round.  You could cast Flame Breath a time or two if you wanted but it will likely just be healed back up with Chi-Chi’s Tranquility.  On your free Undead round use Rot and change Chi-Chi into an undead.  Bring your Stowaway Rat in and use Stampede.  You’re certain to have 1 round of stampeded blocked, but Chi-Chi will be under half health and slower than you, so use it again and finish her off.  If for some reason the fight isn’t over yet, you can bring in the Globule and finish her off with Weakness and Expunge.

Other Thoughts:  In a previous strategy, I used a Clefthoof Runt and took advantage of the damage buff when the Runt is under 50% health.  I was finding more and more that it wasn’t enough of a bonus to finish off Chi-Chi sometimes and I’d end up using the third pet a lot.  Using a pet with 305 speed or more is preferred so you can use your last round of Stampede before Chi-Chi heals or dodges any of your attacks.

Pet Ability: Rot

The Siege of Orgrimmar patch (5.4) has introduced a new and interesting ability for battle pets called Rot.  It has a 3 round cooldown and a 95% chance to hit.  The most interesting part about it is that it turns your opponent into an undead-type creature.  Even more interesting is that the Undead special ability of coming back to life for one round doesn’t seem to go along with it.  Here’s the verbiage on Rot

rot “Rots the target’s flesh, dealing  411 Undead damage and transforming them into Undead for 5 rounds.”

So immediately I start to think about – what if there were a pet that had Critter damage (bonus damage to Undead) and also had the ability to Rot an opponent.  Lo and behold, Willy has Tongue Lash and Rot.  Tongue lash would be a great attack if Willy were a bit faster, so if you had a speed buff like Dazzling Dance from a pet previous to Willy I could see him doing some decent damage.

What other pets can you find Rot on?  Well, to be specific, there are 8.  I’d like to draw attention to 2 great set-up pets that have it; Sen’jin Fetish and Voodoo Figurine.  Both of these pets are Undead and are great at setting up the next pet in line because you know exactly what round they are going to die.  They also both have the ability Wild Magic.  Wild Magic adds a tremendous amount of damage to each attack against an opponent – up to 82 per attack!

wildmagic “Adds 82 damage to every attack against the target.”

With the ability to turn an opponent into undead and place a debuff that adds so much damage per attack, these pets are just begging to be paired up with any of the 60 pets that have Stampede as an ability.

stampede “Starts a stampede, causing 162 Critter damage.  Opponents struck by the stampede take double damage for 2 rounds.  Stampede continues for 3 rounds.”

Either of these pets paired with Clefthoof Runt, Giant Sewer Rat, or Winter Reindeer (just to name a few) will bring down a non-dodging elite pet easily.  I can see this being the new Unborn Val’kyr/Pandaren Water Spirit/Chrominius splat combo for the near future.  That is, until it gets nerfed.
