The Nexus Whelpling lays down a mighty barrage of Magic damage - up to 3000 danage over 5 rounds.
Use Arcane Storm
, then Mana Surge
, then Arcane Storm again for a huge burst of damage over five rounds. if it lives that long.
Three Nexus Whelplings is a lazy way to obliterate some of the easier tamer battles, notably in BfA.
Discussion: One of the simplest pets to play. Set up your Arcane Storm, hit Mana Surge, and sit back for three rounds. Then use your spammable attack until you are killed.
The Nexus Whelpling is all about delivering a lot of damage over the four rounds of Arcane Winds and Mana Surge. To maximise that damage, you want the maximum Power, hence a 341-power P/P breed. The 305-power P/S breed, or the P/B with a fraction more Health may come in handy occasionally, but mostly you are content to be slow, and get the extra benefit from Tail Sweep.
The one consideration is weather. Since Arcane Winds adds 40% to the power of Mana Surge, you would like to avoid having your opponent change the weather. This might lead you to using your spammable attack first, to avoid having a weather change in the first or second round, depending on the opposing team.
The Stormborne Whelpling
has identical stats to the P/S Nexus, and can be set up for the same most common moveset, so you might consider a P/S Nexus redundant, and focus on the P/P and P/B breeds.
