Any Level 1+ Pet

We're aware of the issues caused by increased Wishbright Lantern's damage

A more dynamic fork of #1604.

Thanks to Shenk for routing the P/P raptor breed, and the script.

Don't worry about your own RNG, and as the Idol of Decay is slower it can be sent into Damned even after it's just cast Dark Rebirth.
Unlike the original strategy, the slower imp breeds might complicate this one too much.

High XP
Breed
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.
Level 1+
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!
A Strategy Curator found this strategy to be especially helpful and higlighted it with this tag to give it more exposure.

One of the hardest fights in Draenor. It is not suitable to use for leveling a pet as it takes way too long and is unreliable.

After losing twice in a row it appears the script I had used for years isn't working anymore. I saw this and tried it and it was great to see something different that worked on the first try! Nicely done! (edited)

I used Garden Frog 2,2,2 against Idol of Decay, Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling 1,2,2 against the Lantern and Tiny Snowman 1,1,2 against the last one. 1st and 3rd fight was quite straightfoward. MPD fight, i may need to test further but was a victory for me.

Doesn't even need the SS-breed on the imp. Will take a few rounds more since her gnome will be able to heal, but will still complete with >95% success if your imp is slower.

Yes, the gnome will heal like I said. But for me unless I get really unlucky I can still kill it afterwards. I only lose like 1/10 times when my imps health is too low to survive the first rocket. Not sure if its because of my PS-breed and you are PP, but I'm using this strat every single day and it (almost) never fails me.

Tried this and failed first time. Used S/S Fiendish Imp and P/S Zandalari Toenibbler. I'm guessing SL release changed a few things up.

Had trouble with the toenibbler, dont have the right pet. Brought it in anyway, but when it died brought in Corefire Imp (1,1,1) instead of levelling pet. Surprisingly it finished the fight.

Been having issues with wish not falling off when the Wishbright Lantern dies and healing the Idol of Decay. If this happens, it throws this strategy out of the window.
