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!

Could not test this setup in SL prepatch, but I defeated him using an S/S sprite darter hatchling with Evenascence, A wild Crimson Hatchling with Liftoff and a Lanticore Spawnling with Devour.

Bloat dragonkin family

My phoenix Hawk Hatchling was too slow…. I switched it for The Soul of the Aspect (BB) 2-2-1, the Golden Dragonhawk Hatchling (SS) 1-1-1 and a Stormborne Whelpling (PS) 1-2-2

Rotation… Soul of the Aspects: Deflection, Surge of Light, Breath x2 Deflection, Surge of Light pass and die. Bring in Golden Dragonhawk Hatchling: Rake, Claw, and die. Bring in Stormborne Whelpling: Arcane Storm, Mana Surge, Win!

I tried this several times without fail

Sadly, doesn't seem to work in 8.0 for whatever reason. Bloat has too much health when he comes in, and Chrominius can't seal the deal.

I just did it with Surge of Power doing about 150 in overkill.
You must have made a mistake somewhere, cause it works 100% as long as he does not get crits

done this with : Sprite Darter Hatchling ( 2-1-1 ) + Golden Dragonhawk Hatchling ( 1-1-x ) + Azure Whelpling ( 1-x-1 ), here is the steps :

1- Evanescence
2- Moonfire
3- 3x Arcane Blast
4- Evanescence
5- Moonfire
6- Arcane Blast, your Sprite Darter Hatchling will die.
Bring in your Golden Dragonhawk Hatchling
7- Claw, your Golden Dragonhawk Hatchling will die.
your Azure Whelpling will come in
8- 2x Claw
9- Surge of Power

Done ...

Great strat, works with an Azure Whelpling instead of Emmigosa if you happen to have that leveled instead of her (like me), but because mine was P/P and wasnt quicker than Bloat, I skipped breath and just used arcane storm and surge of power. Thanks!

There is a bit of RNG to this strategy. Your Emmigosa can take a crit and die before Turn 3. In that case you loose the game and have to restart.
The bread of my team was:
Bronze Whelpling (S/S)
Nexus Whelpling (P/S)

Variation on Felbewb's strategy because I lacked a leveled Emmigosa.

Sprite Darter Hatchling 2/1/1, Yu'la 1/2/1, Emerald Proto-Drake 2/2/1.

(My Emerald Proto-Drake was P/P, but it doesn't really matter.)

Evanescence to dodge the Antaen Cannon, Moonfire, Arcane Blast 2x, Evanescence, Arcane Blast, Moonfire. Sprite Darter Hatchling dies, bring in Yu'la.
Lift-off to dodge the Antaen Cannon, Breath until Yu'la dies.
Emerald Bite for the kill.

Quaalude wrote on 2017-09-16 13:06:43

Tried the above tactic but the rotation seems wrong. On the Sprite, after using Evanescence, Moonfire and Arcane Blast twice, you're stuck with 1 round CD left on Evanescence. I managed to squeeze in another Moonfire and Arcane Blast and the Sprite died. Brought in Yu'la and immediately Lift Off to dodge the cannon. Then Breath to finish off Bloat and leave Yu'la with a sliver of health. Maybe RNG gods were in my favor, but with EPW in third slot I would have finished him anyhow.
