I agree with others on the RNG factor of this fight. Stuns from Runehoof can get in the way of the timing for Iron Starlette or in this case, Runeforged Servitor, heavily because Runehoof happening to stun after you supercharge breaks the run. Runehoof also does not appear to have a set move order/priority meaning that some runs it will use its stunning moves later than immediately when available which could also get in the way of just following any guide to the T.

The Nexus Whelpling choice on this fight is also a bit busted should any crits come into your pet, one crit (or even a bad burrow) from Slugger is a dead run. Switching out the Whelpling entirely for a Lifelike Mechanical Frostboar (in my case, H/H 1,2,2) fixed issues with the first fight entirely for me, but the second fight is still broken when relying on Supercharge to not be interrupted by one of the two stunning abilities Runehoof has, and honestly, the best bet there is to play with timing and brute force that fight to get through that awful pet.

The last of the fights, with Duster, is also just a hair broken, but that only seems to be because of a bug with the Howl ability, where it just falls off of Duster without it even being hit. If that happens and you're not killed by moth ball rng being awful, you can also still brute force the fight with Chrominus if it has Arcane Explosion in the first slot to whittle Duster down to <1100 for Surge of Power to work.

All in all, this fight is maybe one of the worst balanced pet battle bosses that I can think of outside of maybe one or two Nazjatar fights or maybe some Argus fights, specfically because of the RNG that can absolutely break runs, regardless of the team you set up. (edited)

Thanks for your long feedback. But did you test this strategy?

1. Stuns have no impact on your team because of Arcane Storm

2. The reason why I choose Nexus Whelpling is Arcane Storm --> 1.

3. the combo Howl + Surge of Power kills Duster (you don't have to use Arcane Explosion (why?))

4. I don't think this fight is tricky or bad balanced. We have ~1400 pets in this game. There is always a way to counter a tamer. But yes ... if you want to play always Ikky with black claw + flock ... then it's tricky.
One exception: Faryl --> familyfight aquatic

(You're totally right about Arcane Storm, so me starting with the stun problem was just dumb point placement, that's on me. It's meant to show the issue with trading Nexus Whelpling or Stormborne Whelpling and then the rest of the fight, so it's totally out of order in the first comment, but I won't edit it so people understand the back and forth (and by extension my stupidity). )

Strategy tested and it works about 75% of the time, if not a bit more, the only weak link for me is Nexus Whelpling which sadly, is necessary to this strategy, like you mentioned. Like I said in the last comment, I found some other replacements to work in place, but if Nexus Whelpling takes a crit, it seems to be the make or break. The rest is just commentary on the opponents, not the strategy, which probably wasn't clear enough.

1. Arcane Storm is absolutely useful and integral to mitigating much of the trouble with Runehoof in this strategy, but it just makes the weakest link whatever pet uses Arcane Storm.

2. Nexus Whelping is great for this strategy, but for anyone who tries to play with this strategy after getting one too many Whelpling early deaths, I mentioned those alternatives (like the Frostboar) which come with their own downfalls, like with Runehoof RNG

3. Howl and Surge of Power works, but like I mentioned there does seem to be a rare enough bug where Howl just falls off the enemy pet without it taking damage, which means an Arcane Explosion is necessary. This isn't a dig at your strategy (which is a good one, all in all), but it does seem to be possible.

4. I just think the fight is balanced poorly because it forces a very small selection of battle pets to be used, and even with a good cocktail put together, like this strategy, it still isn't a done deal. Skill or foresight/planning undone by RNG always rubs me the wrong way.

This strategy is good, and like the others say, I think it's better than the top billed strategy on here, but it can still break, and I think it's the battle's fault, not yours.

I was using this strat for a while, and it never failed me. I'm not sure if it's 100%, because I haven't done the arithmetic, but it certainly works far more than 75%, and must be at least very near 100%.

If it failed for you, please specify exactly how it failed, ideally with a combat log. For example. I have never seen Howl "just fall off" the enemy, and I'm not aware of any such bug ever having existed. You can get a Combat Log from your chat box or from the addon PetBattleLogKeeper, which does still work. Get the GitHub version for the latest.

Yes, the Nexus Whelpling can die. A high hit from Burrow won't do that alone, though; it needs at least one crit. (What chance? somewhere around 7%? Certainly less than 25%) However, even if it does die too soon, the Runeforged Servitor should be able to clean up, as specified above.

The strategy can fail when you are using a P/B or a P/S Nexus Whelpling (or P/S Stomborne Whelpling) It happens if your Nexus Whelpling hits Slugger just 1 time with Mana Surge AND Mana Surge does low damage (variance ability). That means you won't be able to kill Slugger with Windup (2x). I didn't do any nerdy calculations yet, but I guess ~3%
With P/P it's super safe, even with Mana Surge low damage.

Thanks again for your long feedback :)

There are a lot of RNG with this build. First battle, Whelpling died quickly, and Servitor died and came back and finally killed the first pet. The second pet killed it with its first attack.

Had to redo this fight several times. First time Chrominius died before he could Surge of Power, second time Nexus died early to a crit, and then Runeforged's Wind Up didn't kill the first pet. I then decided to simply not swap Runeforged Servitor out for Chrominius and Wind-Up x2 instead, letting it soak some of the damage. Worked much better.

I would like to help but I need some logs. It's theoretical possible that the moth kills Chrominius but it's really unlikely.
If you want to play it super safe:
Don't swap to Chrominius after Runehoof dies.
--> Wind-Up until Runeforged Servitor dies
Bring in your Chrominius
--> Howl (only if moth hp>1110)
--> Surge of Power
