On these fights where top health pet is forced in, people need to be putting what breeds they're using. Several of these strategies I've bumped into now don't mention the breed and its make or break for the fight.

This almost works... you have to get a crit of atleast +100 though and the enemy cant crit you. To better layout the strat:

Pass > Ghostshell Crab is pulled in > Spirit Spikes > Spirit Claws (what i used) or Grasp > will be switched > Toxic Skin > Corpse Explo > switch to your crab > your crab swill be switched with your frog > bubble > Mudslide > water jet.

If you're super lucky, unlike me, congrats~

This was frustrating, I had to dig through my list of crabs to find two Guardians. Wound up using a strand crab, fen crab, and mud jumper. My last crab had 10 health left at the end.

The only way this is possible, and I mean the only POSSIBLE way is if at least one of the abilities crits. It doesn't matter which or where, but at least one has to.

DavidG wrote on 02/27/2018

Agreed. I ran this and didn't crit once, and he survived with a sliver of health left. Since there is no RNG at all in the damage any of your abilities do, the only way this can kill him is if you crit one or more times.

TD Script

ability(Blood in the Water:423) [ enemy.aura(Bleeding:491).exists ]
ability(Swarm of Flies:232) [ enemy.aura(Swarm of Flies:231).duration < 1 ]
ability(Bubble:934)
ability(#1)

This is the script to match this strat, however I've found the success rate underwhelming.

Used it 5x no fails.

Mongoose Pup (2,1,2), speed>347. could also be a fast Mongoose.
Mud Jumper (1,2,1)
Hydraling (2,1,1)

1. Mongoose Pup > Screech (pet swapped).
2. Mud Jumper > Swarm of Flies > Bubble > Water Jet X2 > Swarm of Flies > pass.
3. Hydraling > Shell Armor > Call Lightning > pass.
4. Mongoose Pup > Gnaw > Dive (pet dies).
5. Hydraling > Tail Slap > Call Lightning.

This works very well, but don't be fooled like I was - Kuitan Mongoose does NOT hit 347+ speed even if it's an S/S breed. It has to be either a plain Mongoose or a Mongoose Pup.

I followed this exact strategy and Marcus survived with 1 HP left, lol. SS mongoose, HB jumper, PB hydraling. Had to get a lucky try to make this work. This should work perfecly if either one of hydra or jumper is XP breed. Ty for the solid strategy.

Benax is a good replacement for the Mud Jumper. They both have the same power sets, but Mud Jumper only comes in H/B and B/B breeds, while Benax comes in H/P. Therefore it will hit harder.

The strategy on http://www.wowhead.com/npc=128018/marcuus#comments:id=2529061 made by Roeevv is better indeed. Also the strategy put as main here doesn't work with any breed. Both emperor crab and fen crab should have plenty of health. I managed barely only with HH breeds for these two pets.

Emp and Fen crab were both H/H. Didn't have benax leveled so I used mud jumpe B/Br.
My emp crab died after 3 surges, but fen still had 10 hp, which was enough to rip (during prowl) and then blood in the water (higher speed).
