Nice strategy! My Ore Eater finished the fight without Anubisath Idol ever getting involved (other than his initial Pass). It may have been because I used an S/S Ore Eater (he was faster than Bucky) or it may have been just random luck. Either way, I'll take it. Thanks for the strategy & the great website.
Corefire Imp 2/1/2
any humanoid below 1400 hp (could be level 1)
1. Squirky > pass.
2. Corefire Imp is forced in > Immolation > Rush > Wild Magic.
3. swap manually to your random pet that will die/swapped.
4. Squirky is back > Stampede (Squirky dies after 2 runs).
5. Corefire Imp > Rush.
* if squirky get a crit at some point you will have to restart.
I used this strategy as well. In the 3rd spot I had Ore Eater. After first pass this was the pet who was swapped. I just used Demolition x 3 (1 miss) until next swap. For the rest of strategy I used the one above.
I used a P/P Ore Eater and Bucky died, the Anubisath Idol return wasn't needed.
I think Bucky is faster even if u have a S/S breed so why not use the Ore Eater that hit hardest? Assuming you have more then one, like I do.
used pets suggested by Psychocandy Anubisath Idol (2.1,1), Rotten little helper (2,1,1) and Quiraji Guardling SB breed (2,1,1)
Demolish x2 (*note if demolish does not hit at least twice preferably 3 times restart fight)
quiraji is swapped in
Rotten gets swapped in
This worked. I had a restart a few times when the idol didn't hit often enough. My Guardling was (H/B). I also did Demolish 3x on the second demolish round. Oh, and Rotten's ability is called Ice lance, not Ice tomb.
It took a few tries (I was VERY unlucky with my idol), but it works pretty well, I would say. Just one thing, you said the idol needs to be 1-1-1, but then you mentioned using demolish (which is 2). I would say it works both ways depending on your luck.
I got lucky with Anubisath 1-1-1, Terky 1-2-1, and Rotten Little Helper 1-2-1, I took Pistachio's advice to not pass on the first round, and followed standard fighting rotations after that. For some reason Gift Package had a tremendous hit and saved the day. Ty all!
I did the same strat. Didn't work the first time, but I had to adjust the second time and it worked fine, but not with a ton of health left. Make sure you stun Bucky when you can, it gives you an extra *free* turn. Keep your Anubisath Idol alive the longer you can. He saved the fight! :)
