One of the hardest fights in Draenor. It is not suitable to use for leveling a pet as it takes way too long and is unreliable.

I did it with Puddle of Terror Water Jet, Natures Ward, Sunlight
lvl 12 - 19 pet and lvl 1 pet ( Optional if you want to lvl 2 but they share lvling points )

It is a long fight must warn you
Attack with first pet (try not to hit too hard). (Cycle through 2nd pet if used)
Switch to Puddle of Terror open with Natures Ward then sunlight then Natures Ward till cd for Sunlight repeat till back 2 pets are dead, then you can also use Water Jet to help finish him off. ( Has work almost every time )

Worked perfectly. Brilliant.

Blowmyarrow wrote on 06/20/2017

Hello. As it seems now, this doesn't work properly...why?
Because if I do that snap with my emperor crab (H/H breed) in the 4th turn, the Idols hp will be below 450, but over 250 (tested 5-6 times). Yes it's simple: another snap is missing from here.

So I suggest either to correct 450 to 250 or put in one more snap-turn. Cheers!

Not saving this strategy (or at least using leveling pets that can clean up). I guess I don't have the right breeds or something.

Aby responded on 05/12/2017

I can't use this strat anymore either since recently. I use the third one since. My whelping gets totally doomed by Cymra last pet.

Tormentia-Kul Tiras responded on 05/18/2017

I can still kill the pets but I can't use a leveling pet below 10. They die every time. Not sure what's going on.

Gary wrote on 03/31/2017

I love this strategy! Since WoD, I have been using Anubisath Idol + MPD strat to carry a pet and it felt slow and boring everytime. However this team feels so much quicker and efficient! My only critique is that the wording of the Snap clause is probably a little confusing to people new to the encounter, however Worked perfectly with P/B Infinite Whelpling (Gyrexle was toast!!) and my P/P Emperor Crab. Cheers !!!

Anonymous wrote on 03/22/2017

This doesn't seem to work for infinite whelplings that are P/B or P/P. Gyrexle goes first and kills the whelpling before early advantage can go off

kkm responded on 04/01/2017

Agreed. Not having luck with this strat or the Anub/Mech Pandaren one.

Quenais responded on 04/18/2017

Just a note, a P/P whelpling works fine for me. Not sure what we're doing different, but I've done this fight numerous times with one.

Novylen wrote on 03/13/2017

I can yell you for a fact that the magic number on Idol of decay is 250 to trigger rebirth. I used to use magical crawdad whose snap does less damage. Always the hit that takes Idol to less than 250 triggers it. I love your website. Your strategies have helped me level so many pets. Thanks Thanks Thanks

Vhale wrote on 02/11/2017

This fight seems to be bugged for me atm. Wish keeps getting applied to Gyrexele after the lantern's death

Boodha wrote on 01/13/2017

Since I don't have those exact pets, I used the aquatic /dragonkin strategy and it worked the first time with Hydraling and Wild Crimson Hatchling

Smoggy wrote on 01/12/2017

Nowhere mentions the rebirth at turn 9 when its dies and comes back with full health, strategy is epic fail

Aranesh

responded on 01/13/2017

Hey Smoggy! The timing is exactly calculated so that during rounds 5-7 the Idol will cast Dark Rebirth - which falls off a round later, and it will then not rebirth at all when you kill it in round 9.
If that was not the case for you, you must have done a critical hit or one Snap too much in the beginning.

Argent wrote on 12/27/2016

The write-up for an H/H crab doesn't quite work. Whirlpool + 3xSnap brings the Idol down to 365 health, which is not low enough to force it to use Rebirth on #5. Another Snap (for 312 damage) does the trick though. So the strategy with H/H should be:

1. Whirlpool
2-5: Snap (x4)
6: Swap leveling pet in (Idol casts Rebirth, leveling pet takes one tick of its DoT)
7: Swap Emperor Crab back in
8+: Proceed as written (Renewing Mists, Snap, swap Infinite Whelpling in, etc...)

Jay wrote on 12/21/2016

this strat doesn't work--the inf. whelpling takes too much dmg from the lantern each time and so it doens't last long enough against hte gnome who heals himself all the way up in one cast.

Saintgabrial responded on 12/24/2016

I tested a P/B and P/S Infinite Whelpling they only failed a couple times when my whelpling got a crit by the lantern. Tested it 12 times, six each breed and each breed failed once. So I can only think that your missing one of the moves listed or you have super bad luck and getting too many crits from the Lantern.

Make sure you use Healing Flame as soon as you bring in the Infinite Whelpling.

When Gyrexle comes in and you hit him with (Early Advantage) he should start to repair himself and one Tail Sweep should kill him the first time and the second Tail Sweep should kill him. He should never get that heal off.

Duskbunny wrote on 10/22/2016

I forgot to change the Infinite Whelpling's moves to the ones you recommended. Sleeping Gas, Healing Flame and Early Advantage also worked on this part of the fight. Just started out with Healing Flame then then Sleeping Gas then Early Advantage. Used whichever one wasn't on CD and it worked great. :)

Mia wrote on 10/17/2016

Without a doubt the best strategy for this fight with a lvl pet along. It haven't failed me yet. My Crab is a rare lvl 25 P/P and my Inf is also a rare lvl 25 P/B breed. Thank you.

Anonymous wrote on 09/27/2016

It did fails every time when I did not use a crab with 1806 health. Whit a crab with 1806 healt it is success every time.


Susie wrote on 09/14/2016

For the H/H crab. The extra snap after turn 4 seems to fail the fight for me. However if I move the extra snap to just after turn 7, it has not failed me so far.

Susie responded on 09/15/2016

Oops, never mind. Apparently the other times I did it, the hits were harder and the Idol never hit Rebirth. If he does, then yeah, your way is better.

Swyftlyght wrote on 08/27/2016

I love your strategies; thanks for keeping them up to date! If your H/H Emperor Crab criticals on the 4th Snap, it throws the timing off. You can still swap in your levelling pet, but you'll have to figure out when to bring in your Infinite Whelpling. Healing Flame is a must on the first turn against the lantern, so if you miss it, abandon and retry.

Orpho wrote on 08/17/2016

A.mazing. I always had the worst time with this, hands-down, of all the trainers (and as XuFu still says below, I couldn't imagine working in a leveling pet!) This strat is amazing.

Hammerforge wrote on 07/22/2016

Much better Alternative than the first one, I tried Alternative 1 numerous times and even tried a modified version but couldn't win. This one worked first time and didn't even look close to failing.

Aranesh

responded on 07/23/2016

After some consideration, I agree - this one is now the primary strategy.

Anonymous wrote on 07/20/2016

This strategy worked a treat for me today, but your first strategy failed me three times. I think this one is also much better as it's less complicated. Thank you!

Pilfer wrote on 05/17/2016

With Guardian Breed (rare), you need one more Snap in turn 5, and change in turn five to timming the ressurect

Aranesh

responded on 05/18/2016

That, is brillant :D Thank you ! I changed the strategy accordingly!

Jere wrote on 11/12/2015

As a quick note, you don't really need a level 12+ carry for the crab/inf whelp strat. As long as you can survive a tick of swarm of flies (most level ones except for undead) you should be good. Love the site. Comments spill out over your border boxes though in Firefox.

Aranesh

responded on 11/13/2015

Very true! Thanks Jere, I changed it :-)
