Maybe something have changed... or you could just have been lucky. The strategy was at the time hard to get to work, so I left that message in the information section so the general public such as your self, would know that the chance of multiple continous fails could occur. Experience have taught me that it's better to be safe than sorry in some case.
I am pleased, however, to hear that it worked out for you :)
can work, but your primary pet needs to die to Pilfers Jar.
My Nuts (P/S) died there so Elfin Rabbits (B/B) Dodge evaded the speeddebuff and the oneshot.
Finished the fight with Darkmoon Hatchling (S/S).
Got lucky with a Predatory Crit tho.
used grizzly squirrel lvl 23 s/s
rabbit h/p (highest health rabbit I had(1546) and still speed of 292
used stat exactly as written, took 2 tries, worked 2nd time..25 squirrel might have made difference
Same for me. Initially I tried with S/S H/H S/S but the frostfur rat simply didn't have enough health to survive. After multiple attempts I went out to capture another one. Strangely enough I kept finding rare SS or rare Ninja ones which I'd normally be thrilled about.
Finally I got a B/B one. Levelled and changed to rare. Didn't work first time because of an unlucky crit but worked the second time.
Took some tries, but also worked at the end with both H/P Fire beetle and H/P Frostfur rat. From what I saw, My P/S rat was dying due to low Hp. With H/P breed and with no crits from Pilfer, my rat got 88hp left before the last cannon.
