Works great, thanks! Just one thing if you want to make it faster: Turn 1 Vicious Slice seems unnecessary from my testing. Headbutt after Stampede always killed Chirrup for me.

Turn 1 Vicious Slice is the "safe route". It extends the first duel to five turns, which allows the debuff of Chirrup's Swarm ("Shattered Defense") to wear off before Hogs faces Stormlash. If the debuff is up, Stormlash has a chance to one-hit Hogs with a critical 'Call Lightning'.

So yes it can be skipped, but you have to restart the fight if Stormlash gets lucky.

This can happen sometimes since Lift-Offs damage is subject to RNG. I guess Tail Sweep hit for critical damage? (can't test it myself right currently)

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Another scenario would be skipping Healing Flame after a strong Lift-Off. Strong as in "brought Whiskers below 50%". This would activate the +50% damage buff from the Dragonkin passive and would cause Tail Sweep to connect to a lethal hit - even without a critical strike (at least for the P/P breed - I have/had no data for the other ones).

Thank you for this strategy! However, Whiskers hit for at least 265 damage (non-critical hit) on Turn 5 (Swap to your Level Pet). This makes it impossible for a level 1 pet to survive. I would recommend a minimum of pet level 5 or 6 just to be on the safe side. I personally don't feel comfortable with anything less than 450 health just because RNG can randomly give Whiskers a critical hit. The strategy is excellent; I just suggest using a level 5 pet minimum (moderate risk) to level 10 pet minimum (no risk).

Ethyce wrote on 10/18/2017

Thanks for the feedback :) I think I can explain what happened.

The basic idea is to switch in the Level Pet after Whiskers drops to ~30% HP or lower because that's where the AI will use Survival: It is supposed to be a "safe turn" for level 1 pets.

IF the damage from Lift-Off and Tail Sweep fail to hit this threshold, Whiskers will continue with Surge and hit the Level Pet. Reasons for this can be the RNG involved in Lift-Off and the attack stat/breed of your dragon. As for Spawn of Onyxia: P/P has yet to fail me, and both P/B and P/S should work most of the time (bear in mind we are talking about blue quality pets).

My guess is that your whelpling is one of the latter two breeds. One solution would be to extend the above sequence with a second Tail Sweep in case Whiskers' HP are too high. This will expose your whelpling to Whiskers' Dive after switching though, so you might have to start over if Dive kills it. Starting over would be the second solution anyway. The long term solution would be training a P/P Spawn of Onyxia.

I hope this helps understanding the strategy. If you still have questions, feel free to ask away!

With Stormlash I switch positions of Turn 4 w Turn 1-3 bc the odds of getting killed before getting that spell off after Stampede are not good. This way, you get Vicious Slice in bf Hogs dies. Otherwise this technique is flawless. :)

It's actually impossible to survive Turn 4 with Stormlash being all buffed up. Hogs is meant to die so you can bring in Spawn of Onyxia, hitting with Vicious Slice is not mandatory (you could also pass on that turn). Stampede synergizes so well with Lightning Storm that three rounds of it are enough to gnaw away his hitpoints, and even without the debuff Spawn of Onyxia would have no problem finishing him off at this point.

But yes, putting Vicious Slice before Stampede is an alternative. Even 2x Vicious Slice plus one round of Stampede could work; same goes for 3x Vicious Slice iirc (but you want the debuff up after Turn 2 in case Hogs dies in Turn 3 due to crits). My sole reason for submitting it like this is because you can go afk on Turn 2 and 3. ;)

This works exactly as described! Aki gave me fits during Pandaria, so getting a level 1 pet in on her felt very good, indeed.
