Substitutes:

Note: You have selected a substitute pet.
The strategy might fail if you use it with this pet instead of the one the strategy creator intended.

The substitute finder looks for these criteria in relation to the original pet:
  • Same family
  • Has the required skills
  • Has the required stats (if specified)
  • Ignores specific breed requirements for the main pet, as breeds can be very different for substitutes

1 / 4

If a cockroach comes in I'd suggest switching to one of the Shale Hatchlings. Since he casts Apocalypse followed by Shell Shield, you have a round to get your hatchling in, a round to get Stoneskin up, and then just Poison Spit from that point on.

TD Script
The strategy offers a TD script that can be used with the TD Script addon. You can copy the script by clicking on the button to the left of the pets.
This strategy has been built to be as fast as possible.
The strategy takes a while. Sit back, get yourself a warm drink and relax the scenery.
Not every strategy can be bullet proof. This is one of them. You might have to restart it, since there are some random elements that increase the risk of your pets failing. Don't blame them, please!
You want a strategy that does the job in one shot? This might be the one for you!
Some instructions are more difficult to follow than others. That's exactly what you might find in this strategy!

Tested and confirmed working, even though it adapts the original strategy it does not break it all, thank you!

Those who have very small pet collections are advised to do very long fights that involve self healer pets like these. I, for one, don't have the time for it.

I found that by using Ironbark in between thorns and photosynthesis, it kept the damage taken pretty low. Soloed first time, and only didn't the second due to some lucky crits by the enemy team.

I think what he means is using a starting order of Thorns>Ironbark>Photosynthesis to start rather than Thorns>Photosynthesis>Ironbark (repeated) and then following the priority as normal.

This certainly helps the opener by reducing the damage from 2nd multi-hit attack and might help when the ruby sapling isn't slower to keep the ironbark buff up more of the time (rather than having to click 2 maintenance buffs on consecutive turns and causing it to fall off.

I could be wrong though :) Great strat!
