Those birds look mean but trust me, if you pit a Nexus Whelpling against them, they go down faster than you can hit a third spell!

All these years later, this strat still kicks ass; didn't even need the Tail Sweep. TY!

Yes still works!

Eric wrote on 2018-11-11 17:46:14

It might have been luck, but I used Arcane Storm first, then Mana Surge, and proceeded to watch my Nexus one-shot three pets in a row. Easily the most satisfying pet battle I have ever witnessed.

Used this strategy too and it seems to work, though under Shadowlands I did need an extra Tail Sweep.

He doesn't have you do Arcane Storm first because the starting pet of the opposing team uses it, so you still get the double burst from the Mana Surge. However, I wondered what would happen if you used it first to hit all 3 pets, so thank you for the post.

Mine is a PS breed so it *may* have gone before the opposing pet. Can't remember now but will check next time round.

Mine is a PS, as well, and it went second.

The new Vibrant Gimmerfly and Wild Etherwyrm from Bastion are nice replacements that worked very well.

as of 8.0 works better if you do Storm then surge.

zeitlosen

wrote on 2018-08-20 06:43:26

People have said this before, but I'm curious about what works better with it? I have a PB Whelpling and by the time I have to Storm the second pet is already next to dead. The third pet gets hit with a dragon-racial storm and takes two tail swipes to go down.

Using Arcane Storm first causes the Mana surge to 1 shot each pet as it adds to the damage done by Mana Surge.

Remte

wrote on 2019-09-10 16:49:22

Arcane Winds are already up because Jahan uses AS too. That being said, I'd do some playing with racial… but Mana Surge's RNG on the top of the crit bonus can backfire and end in an overkill. Poor birds anyway!

I use Arcane Storm first, then Mana Surge. I do not need to use Tail Sweep.
This script do what it is suggested here.

TD Script:

ability(Mana Surge) [round=1]
ability(Arcane Storm)
ability(Tail Sweep)

Prudentius

wrote on 2018-06-20 14:22:57

This doesn't do what you suggested. This forces mana surge to go first. It also many mana surge weaker. You also need to remember that Jahan, the first enemy pet, casts Arcane Storm in the first round and that if Arcane Storm is cast with arcane winds active it does additional damage.

Feorthorn wrote on 2018-04-22 02:09:25

Regardless of what some comments say, the strategy works best if followed as outlined. Don't switch 2 and 3 around. Good work.

Santo wrote on 2017-06-25 19:20:59

Lol....Didn't even get to use tailsweep and all I had was an uncommon P/P Whelpling!

A Flyer just can't cut it against a Magic wielding Dragon.

Santo wrote on 2017-06-11 01:47:25

I have to lol because I did it with a lvl 20 and lvl 19 Nexus Whelplings. The 20 died but the 19 finished off with half health left. Had another lvl 19 waiting just in case but not needed. LOL

Benaji wrote on 2017-02-26 06:24:15

After 100 battles on this build and a new owner of a lvl 3 menagerie, I found it better to cast 3 then 2 about 60% of the time due to the crits and dragon kin dmg. Samm gets smashed this way. If you don't win with those cast 3 again to end the fight.

Great strat....fast and easy!

This strategy is fantastic! It just slaughters the entire team.

Pecanman wrote on 2016-06-19 03:27:20

Just as another option, and trying to be different,
Mana Wyrmling
1. Amplify Magic
2. Mana surge
3. Feedback
fight over

Aranesh

wrote on 2016-07-05 01:56:41

Definitely works, but is a bit depending on the Wyrmlings breed. With a B/B or H/B Wyrmling it doesn't manage on its own

ty Xu Fu your tact was the best. great site :)

Camelia wrote on 2016-03-07 06:50:24

If you switch Arcane storm with Mana surge you can 4 shot the fight

Aranesh

wrote on 2016-03-07 00:43:15

If everything goes well ;-)
I tried it a couple time and it depends on crits really. In most of my tries however, Samm (the second one) used his healing spell first, and thus undid the damage from Arcane Storm. So it's a tiny little bit more secure if you use Mana Surge in the beginning. In the end however, I don't think it makes much of a difference ^^

I see you list Chrominius as Pet 2, even though he won't be needed when you have a Blue 25 Nexus Whelpling.

While Nexus Whelpling is indeed the perfect pet for this battle, and I have found a P/P will often kill all three with one Mana Surge, for any new battler who doesn't have him yet, I just tried with Chrominius instead.

I found that Chrominius spamming Arcane Explosion, and healing with Ancient Blessing when he could, took out the front pet and left the others at very low health before he died. Just about any second non-aquatic pet could easily finish the other two off.

Very nice recommendations. Thank you Grainne!
