Substitutes:

Note: You have selected a substitute pet.
The strategy might fail if you use it with this pet instead of the one the strategy creator intended.

The substitute finder looks for these criteria in relation to the original pet:
  • Same family
  • Has the required skills
  • Has the required stats (if specified)
  • Ignores specific breed requirements for the main pet, as breeds can be very different for substitutes

Simple magic dragon setup.

Due to identical ability loadouts, Nexus Whelpling and Stormborne Whelpling are interchangeable.

In most cases, you won't even need Chrominius, but if Moth Dust puts Nexus Whelpling to sleep on Turn 1, you'll need him to clean up.

If you would prefer to restart if Sleep hits, replace the "change" command at the top of your TD Script with the following:

quit [self.aura(Asleep:498).exists]

Changelog 5/13/21: Posted some refinements to the TD script including a line to additionally cast "Arcane Storm" if "Toxic Fumes" is usable. Also reformed the strat into a priority list. Thanks to DragonsAfterDark for the suggestion.

At least one of the pets for this strategy require the use of a specific breed.
This strategy has been built to be as fast as possible.
The strategy takes a while. Sit back, get yourself a warm drink and relax the scenery.
Not every strategy can be bullet proof. This is one of them. You might have to restart it, since there are some random elements that increase the risk of your pets failing. Don't blame them, please!
This strategy is using pets obtainable from the Wow Trading Card Game (TCG) or the auction house for potentially high sums of gold.
This strategy is using pets obtainable only from the WoW In-Game Shop for Battle.net Balance or real money.
You can use this strategy to carry a low level pet to give it experience.
Some instructions are more difficult to follow than others. That's exactly what you might find in this strategy!
TD Script
The strategy offers a TD script that can be used with the TD Script addon. You can copy the script by clicking on the button to the left of the pets.
At least one pet in the strategy cannot be obtained anymore. If you have it, congrats!

It didn't put me to sleep, but managed to defeat him with only 2 pets. Chrominius was just chilling in the back. :)

It happens rarely, but it does happen. More often than not, the sleep aspect will miss.

So, my rounds didn't quite look like this. Because Mana Surge now has varying damage, and the Nexus Whelp has a few breeds, my Mana Surge did not kill Star Tail until the third Mana Surge. However, I was able to survive Needlenose's first attack to Arcane Storm again. I again used all my Mana Surges on Needlenose, and had to Arcane Storm and Tail Sweep on Brite. That said, this still worked and I didn't need Chrominius because I didn't really encounter any crits. This strat might benefit more from a Priority set up, rather than specific moves expected to happen on specific rounds.

Excellent point. That's pretty much how my TD script functions anyway. I have edited the strat.
