The MPD has only one breed, S/S.
The MPD is notable for its Decoy
, which with its 309 Speed and Mechanical racial, can save it from otherwise deadly mechanics. It has a very useful split damage in Thunderbolt
, and a decent basic attack in Breath
Use Decoy either specifically to prevent taking a big hit, or on cooldown. Use Thunderbolt on cooldown, and Breath otherwise.
can be used in tamer strategies occasionally to set up delayed damage under a debuff.
Discussion: The MPD is a very useful addition to your toolbox, with Decoy for avoidance, and a side specialisation in being a double counter to Magic pets, since Mechanicals take less damage from Magic attacks, and Breath is strong against Magic.
Its gameplay is simple: decide when to use Decoy – at the start, unless you know when a big hit is coming – and then use Thunderbolt on CD and Breath otherwise.
Speed + Mechanical racial + Decoy often keeps the MPD alive to do a couple of extra rounds of damage.
Bombing Run can be used in combination with a swap to a pet that will apply a damage buff before it hits, or against Beasts, but it’s not common.
may be used to die deliberately in a Tamer strat, to let a Carry Pet finish with XP.
