Your third pet will be hit by Acid Rain, even in the back row, so if you don't want it to die, I suggest having at least 150 HP on it.

There are ample opportunities to power level a third slot using this strategy once Stickers is out. I'll leave it up to you to decide when is best to swap it in, but it's probably going to be a round that Frog Kiss is used.

Note: Please keep in mind that to complete the Achievement, all 3 pets must be level 25. Leveling options are included for alternate completion methods, but will not grant credit towards the individual or meta Achievements.

Cheers!

Stickers died here for me. It appears I got a crit or two on Stickers, so your mileage may vary. If you are having issues, I would suggest swapping a level 20+ pet in the third slot just to finish mopping up.

Anklerender works here if you use primal cry first turn and then follow the script.

Post SL pre-patch this no longer seems viable as written. Kneebiter was unable to do enough damage to kill Scales before dying, which allows Scales to blind your next pet as soon as it comes in and bring it to half health before you can do anything. I solved the problem with the Baby Blizzard Bear (1,2,1). Turn 1-3 Hibernate, Turn 4 Maul, then Bite until blinded and Hibernate while blinded. This allowed the Bear to get off a couple hits after Scales died before being killed. My 3rd pet was Argi (2,2,2) turn order was Chew, Headbutt, Horn Gore.

Alternatively, you can lead with Black Claw, then Hunting Party, then Bloodfang. Hunting Party only needs to hit once to apply Shattered Defenses, so Bloodfang kills.

use(Hunting Party:921) [enemy.aura(Black Claw:918).exists]
use(Black Claw:919)

use(Stoneskin:436) [!self.aura(Stoneskin:435).exists]
use(Onyx Bite:437)
use(#1)

Only notable thing is you may lose if Frog Kiss turns you into frog too many times.

I think you need a breed restriction on your Zandalari for the way this strat is written. Mine is a P/S, which is slower than Scales, and it could not kill him. It also means that Bloodfang is wasted in Turn 1. If you're slower, you end up having to pass the first 2 turns.

I continued with the strat, but I always ended up with Stickers at full hp, or right around 1k.

Thank you for the feedback. I'm a bit new to publishing strategies here, so I apologize for missing that.

You are correct, only the S/S breed is fast enough to beat Scales to the punch on the first round and I have updated the strategy accordingly.

Cheers!

I understand your complaint. However, I suggest the use of leveling pets for after you have this tamer down, and just want to do the WQ for other reasons to get the maximum benefit.

That being said, you raise a good point and to make sure people don't get confused by my (cleary unobvious) intent at including these options , I will make special notes in the info of all of my strategies.

Sorry to give you the impression I that I was illiterate.

Cheers!
