Funny story.. moral: Don't have conversations with others while pet battling! I had Dribble in as my backup, he's almost level 25 and I was hoping to level him up in this fight. I put him in my 1st slot and due to the conversation that I was having I wasn't paying close enough attention and almost killed him, 1st mistake! Then I messed up my Dragonling rotation and accidentally killed him off, using Explode too soon, and with my Starlette already down, I had no choice but to try to use Dribble again to finish off Rukus... The little guy stood up to his opponent and took him out! Unfortunately, he didn't level! Anyway, Thank you for the strategy!! It still worked to take this team down!! 5-star vote from me! :D (edited)

I had the correct pets that are mentioned here slotted before the battle, but when I started the fight one of my addons switched my second pet to my De-Weaponized Mechanical Companion (S/S), so I just went with it, Started with Extra Plating, the Demolish, then Metal Fist twice and I still beat them on the first try, just thought I would share that in case someone needs an alternate pet. :D

2022 a few days into ZM: Brutus doesn't die but survives with 48 hp left. I zapped him with the toxic green spell then carried on the rest of the turns as normal. FYI in case it happens to you (died twice before I did that 3rd time lucky).

Just an FYI:

I used an HP Iron Starlette and my first attempt it hadn't died yet before the script changed to the Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling. My 2nd attempt though it did die as expected before the pet swap to MPD. However, I had a lvl 24 pet as my leveling pet and it only got 59 XP so it didn't really matter anyway lol.

You can use this TD script as well, i tested lot of scripts to understand how this work xD and it's super easy to use.


use(Supercharge:208) [round~2]
use(Toxic Smoke:640) [round~6]
use(Wind-Up:459) [self(#1).active]
use(Breath:115) [enemy(#2).hp>560]
use(Explode:282) [enemy(#2).hp<560]

Failed twice before working on my third attempt, always using a P/S Starlette. If Brutus crits, which happened to me both times, the Starlette dies before doing any damage to Rufus. Then, even my lvl 20 carry couldn't finish the fight against Rufus.
It's probably safer to use a Starlette with higher HPs than the PP or PS's 1400 (all breeds will kill Brutus on turn 3)

Because Blizzard HEAVILY nerfed XP from all the Garrison dailies except Squirt way back in 6.1. They figured that having big XP battles every day was too much.

Well, we do have much more big-XP levelling opportunities now, mostly from Legion World Quests. A good tamer up in Legion is nearly as good (maybe better by some measures) as Squirt and the Garrison battles.

First time I used this I got obliterated, not sure why, maybe a crit took out my Iron Starlette too early.
I tried again and it was a cake-walk.
I've updated this script to have Iron Starlette use Toxic Smoke on Rukus instead of powering up a second Wind-Up that will never go off.


if [ enemy(Brutus:1479)).active ]
use(Supercharge:208) [ self(Iron Starlette:1387).aura(Wind-Up:458).exists ]
use(Wind-Up:459)
endif
use(Toxic Smoke:640) [ !enemy(Rukus:1482).hp.full & !self(Iron Starlette:1387).aura(Wind-Up:458).exists ]

Added the line you mentioned about toxic smoke to the original.
Not sure what happened to your script but it doesn't run because some symbols got turned into words like & = amp;. Dunno
