Yes, there are lots of "short cuts" that usually work. But if you are max unlucky with stuns and crits, such a strategy can fail. Thats why i used 3 pets with 1 ability from each, trying to find the best combo between speed and safety :)
My first attempt went awry. T1 Carry pet> T2 Switch to Clockwerk Gnome, T3 Turret, T4 Gnome chewed up and stunned. Chitara switches to Quake and clears the turret. I bring in Bling with wrong configuration of 1,2,2. So, I let loose the rocket T5-6 for a 3400 one shot. Quite a surprise and fun. Never Quit, Never Give Up.
