This strategy should be a lot more reliable than others I've tested. This has a small chance to fail if your Hermit Crab takes some critical hits and dies before Smokey does.

If that does happen, you can restart the fight with another Hermit Crab, if you've got more than one Rare Hermit Crab. (You should, they're excellent.) Alternatively, you can be sneaky and log out, log onto another character that has some bandages on them and heal your pets before switching back.

I'm still new to writing my own TD Scripts, so please let me know you encounter a problem with it.

EDIT: Updated TD script to include ID numbers for the stun and root. (Thanks DaBear78 for pointing that out.)

Thanks for the strategy!

I made a few tweaks to the script that made it a bit more reliable for me.

1. Barnaby's dodge should only be used when Pyro's Elementium Bolt is one round away from hitting (dodging sooner won't avoid it). Thus I replaced:

use(Dodge:312) [self.aura(Elementium Bolt:605).exists]

with this:

use(Dodge:312) [self.aura(Elementium Bolt:605).duration=1]

2. Also, on that one round before Elementium Bolt hits, dodge should still be priority #1 even if Pyro is dead or swapped out (if you swap to your Chitterspine Skitterling on that round, it will get wrecked by the Elementium Bolt). Thus, I moved the Dodge higher in the script priority over attacks and swaps.

3. This one doesn't matter too much, but during Infectus's undead round, I prioritized passing over attacking in the script.

Here is the full script I used:

use(Shell Armor:1380)
use(Pinch:2067) [enemy.hp<286]
use(Whirlpool:513)
use(Pinch:2067)
use(Dodge:312) [self.aura(Elementium Bolt:605).duration=1]
change(#3) [enemy(Infectus:2770).active]
change(#3) [enemy(Pyro:2769).aura(Stunned:927).exists & !enemy(Pyro:2769).aura(Rooted:248).exists]
standby [enemy.aura(Undead:242).exists]
use(Tornado Punch:1052) [enemy(Pyro:2769).hp<335]
use(Jab:219) [enemy(Pyro:2769).hp<188]
use(Tornado Punch:1052)
use(Jab:219)
use(Swarm:706) [enemy.aura(Black Claw:918).exists]
use(Skitter:626) [enemy.aura(Shattered Defenses:542).exists]
use(Skitter:626) [enemy.hp<155]

Tried 3 times. Never worked.

Chitterspine always gets nuked by the Twilight Meteor. I get off 1 round of Swarm before he dies. Barnaby doesn't have enough punch to kill Infectus.

Either you are getting very unlucky while using a lower HP breed of Skitterling, or something is going wrong. Barnaby should always be able to finish Infectus with the double damage debuff, and in instances where Pyro comes in after Infectus dies due to Pyro being stunned earlier, your skitterling should have been swapped in as soon as Pyro was stunned by the second Tornado Punch, giving you an extra turn to kill Infectus with the Skitterling.

Can't get this to work, Chitterspine dies too early and Barnaby hasn't got enough health left to finish off Infectus (edited)

Jab is mentioned twice in the instructions, and the addition of the word 'else' would not make grammatical sense for either instance.

This is the only strat I could get to work, right down to the being sneaky and logging to an alt (didn't know that was a thing, it worked, now I fully expect it to get nerfed).

Agreed, i tried the strats prior to this one, and not sure if it was a breed thing, but this one was the only one that worked for me, and i still had Barnaby at 77%. So happy I have lots of different pets to try!

Didn't go as planned. Hermit crab died early. Got a lucky stun off with Barnaby to squeak out a victory.

You can also use Bonkers if you don't have Barnaby (same move set)

It can work, yes. If you're unlucky and Infectus rolls high on his damage, Barnaby is cometimes needed to finish him off. In this instance, Barnaby is a lot better as he is undead, so he takes weak damage from Pyro, and normal damage from Infectus. Bonkers is a humanoid so will take normal damage from Pyro and strong damage from Infectus.

Didn't work as scripted for me—Chitterspine Skitterling died early—but Barnaby came back in with enough health to Dodge/Tornado Punch/Jab for the win. TY for the strategy!

I'm glad the strategy worked, and thanks for the feedback. Does the script need adjustment for situations where Barnaby needs to finish off Infectus?
