After screwing around in the tournament I found somewhat funny strategy for Yu'la: I used 3 lvl 22 Shrine Flies, rare/uncommon/poor quality and dotted her up with Glowing toxin (6% hp/per round) while scratching / cocoon striking... She fell over when the last fly had around 1k hp left.. very amusing to see
Well the 6% of hp DoT doesn't scale with level and doesn't get reduced by the boss buff so that's why it worked. % of HP damage cannot be modified ( atleast last time I checked )
beat crane with unborn valk, pandaren water spirit, chrominius,
ox with just the water spirit, chrominus
tiger darkmoon tonk, menagerie custodian, clockwork gnome
dragon anubis idol with deflect, hopling with his interupt ability, and darkmoon tonk from tiger
after 5 days of i beat it last night and got the tiger cub pet god damn that fucker is cute and feet and vengeance strike too stronk
It was a real challenge. But now that I've worked out some effective tactics against the Celestials, next week should be smoother.
Mind you, I guess all of the first round trainers will change up, haha, so I might need to reassess my combos!
Chi-Chi is cute and has a nice toolkit but leveling it would be a pain if you level it through wild pet battles. Dem wilderness full 'o critters.
During the tournament, Chi-chi gave me a hell of a time, and I love his (and Chi-ji's, for that matter, they remind me of Okami) design, so Chi-chi it was. My next choice will probably be Xu-fu, though, since Feed seems like a really nice abillity and I personally don't find Zao and Yu'la's skillsets to be that interesting.
Also, if there's one thing the tournament has taught me, it's that I don't have enough max level mechanicals.
PvP was once just in the world in in AV and AB and WSG. It was expanded with arenas and rated BGs. PvE was expanded to include scenarios, the Brawler guild and Proving grounds. So what is so bad about pet battles.
People can whine all they want that it "shouldn't" be part of WoW, but that is ofc an opinion you are free to have. Nothing more. An entire design team was busy crafting AQ40 and Naxx 40 that very, very few people saw. Raids have been a major selling points for patches and up to ICC actually very, very few people did them.
So chill it everyone and let people have their pet battle. Nobody gave an outcry when 95-99% of the customers were bypassed and the devs mainly created raids for some 1-5% of customers.

So. Has anyone mentioned that you can solo Yu'lon with the Lil' Bad Wolf yet? (Claw, Dodge, Howl)
