I'm wondering if breeds matter? My proto whelp kept getting swapped in after Crimson Hatchling died, and if I tried swapping Emmigosa in right away, she'd always die before I could get Surge of Power off.
Finally I just flipped the order of the strat: Crimson Hatchling dies, Proto-whelp comes in, used proto strike, whelp gets swapped out, then finish off with Emmigosa as described above. It was *extremely* close but it worked.
I used Yu'la 1/2/3, Dark Whelpling 2/2/1, and Emmigosa 2/1/1
Yu'la uses Celestial blessing and gets swapped.
Dark Whelpling tail Sweeps
Switch back to Yu'la
Life exchange Emmigosa gets switched in
Surge of Power, dark whelp in
pass he dies
Yu-la breath ftw.
Worked first time! I was having a lot of trouble with the Alt1 strat with the tailwhips not hitting hard enough. I used a destruction EPW and the blood exploded. Tried it again with my power/speed EPW and the wild magic tick finished the blood off. Great strat.
