Strategy works perfectly, but Whiskers at 551 HP still uses Survival. Might want to change the Turn 4 instructions in the strat or it will fail at 551 HP.

Badjoojoo - SOE wrote on 12/14/2016

This strat is wayyyyy too unreliable bc when the 2nd pet comes in, if it casts its huge whirlwind attack, it kills the Anklerender and doesn't get Black Claw on it. You have to restart the fight and seems like Stormrender casts that spell 90% of the time as its first spell.

Saintgabrial responded on 12/17/2016

Yes, she will always casts that spell. But your Zandalari Anklerender should always go first, thanks to you useing LEAP to kill Chirrup and be able to cast Black Claw before she casts Call Lightning that will kill your Zandalari Anklerender. What breed is your Zandalari Anklerender? I have a P/B and P/S Zandalari Anklerender and this has never failed for me with either of them. Since they are not a P/P they don't help the Clockwork Gnome kill Stormlash right when it comes in, but always gets Black Claw cast.

My guess is your not casting Leap as the last skill to kill Chirrup. Leap MUST be used otherwise it will fail.

RabidPenguin wrote on 12/11/2016

the turn 5 metal fist is wrong. doing this gets my level pet killed every time. you need to bring in the level pet on that turn 5.

Saintgabrial responded on 12/11/2016

I'm testing when to bring in a level Pet at this time. It needs to come in when Whiskers is going to use the skill Survival. He'll do that once he is at a certain amount of hit points (HP). So may need to skip Turn 5 depending on Whiskers HP. testing this right now. Its around 500 to 700 is all I know right now.

Saintgabrial responded on 12/11/2016

Ok I believe this is fixed. It is my best estimate on an hour of testing it, though. But should be fine now.

Saintgabrial wrote on 11/13/2016

This part is wrong.

Stormlash comes in
Turn 1 Black Claw - your Anklerender dies
Bring in your Clockwork Gnome
Turn 1 Build Turret - Stormlash dies

It never dies here....ever, I always have to metal Fist once after the turret to kill Stormlash.

Gemini responded on 11/14/2016

You should get a higher damage breed of your Anklerender. Try for P/P. If turret doesn't one-shot Stormlash you're not getting enough extra damage per black claw proc.

Saintgabrial responded on 11/15/2016

Ya mines a P/B

Evilry wrote on 11/07/2016

This strat does not deserve the 1st position.
305 attack Zandalari does not help to kill dragon in 1 turn.
That trigger Gnome to be vulnerable to Whiskers.
Even you swap in level 1 pet in Turn 7 (not turn 6 obviously).
Gnome will get killed when swapped back in.

Anonymous wrote on 09/19/2016

Clockwork Gnome's turret does not kill Stormslash on turn 1 for me. He does not die until turn 2. I'm also finding that if I swap in my level pet on turn 6, Whiskers kills him. I have to swap him in on turn 7.

Tiatae responded on 10/15/2016

Exactly the same situation for me. Build turret does not one short Stormlash so I have to Metal Fist afterwards to finish him off.
I have an addon to track the other team's ability cooldowns and swap in my levelling pet when he is due to dive, but it isn't turn 6 as stated.

Anonymous responded on 10/17/2016

I think this one might be breed specific as my P/S anklerender was never able to work, but my P/P kneebiter worked. 14 extra hits points made all the difference.

Gráinne responded on 10/17/2016

Wow. This is simply arithmetically true. I've been using a similar strat on Aki for years, hundreds of battles, and never noticed that it needs a P/P Anklerender.

Stormlash has 1769 HP.
Here's the numbers from the Battle Log:
Using Turret with Black Claw from an S/S Anklerender gives three hits on Stormlash consisting of 199 from Turret and 307 from Lightning Storm = 3*(199+307) = 1518

Using Turret with Black Claw from an P/P Anklerender gives three hits on Stormlash consisting of 232 from Turret and 359 from Lightning Storm = 3*(232+359) = 1773

So the Black Claw from a P/P Anklerender only just guarantees the kill by 4HP. Of course, a crit from a less powerful breed would also do the trick about a third of the time.

I am not clear where those numbers come from. Possibly I'm tired, and missing something obvious. I'll leave the elements here, and get back to it.
Basic Turret does 124. S/S Black Claw does 118. P/P Black Claw does 144. Lightning Storm adds 25% to Mechanical damage, and 35 per hit in Stormlash's case.

I finish the strat differently:
Stormlash Dies
Whiskers Enters
Swap in Level Pet (as Whiskers Dives)
Swap back Gnome (to take the hit from the Dive)
Turret
Metal Fist
Whiskers dies from turrets

That also may require a P/P.

Gráinne responded on 10/18/2016

So I looked at this again using an S/S Anklerender.
After Build Turret, you need a Metal Fist to finish Stormlash.

Then Repair. You will hit zero and Failsafe during the repair.

As Anon wrote when starting this comment, swapping your level pet in on Turn 6 results in it getting hit with a Surge.

Unfortunately, I accidentally killed Whiskers with a crit, so that's all I can do for today.

With the fox gone and Lava Crab moved, these comments are out of place now. :(

Laurathos wrote on 02/17/2016

Hey, can you add Fox Kit to your list of foxes? 'cause whenever I load a setup with foxes it pick some lvl 21ish uncommon instead of my awesome lvl 25 rare fox kit

Hey Laurathos!
I assume you're using the Rematch string. I have to add specific pets in the string, although here on the guide it is not specified. I can't change it to a variable that uses your highest level fox available, because Rematch does not support such a function (yet?).

However, you can change the fox in your setup and overwrite the team in Rematch. It should then use the correct fox every time you load the team :-)

Gráinne wrote on 05/18/2015

So I levelled a Lava Crab. H/H, but I can see why breed doesn't matter here.

Thanks for introducing me to this strat. It was very entertaining - once.

Whiskers died about Round 30, OK, but Stormlash held on until nearly 40. The battle ended on Round 55.

Never again! :)

Thanks !
I was really struggling coming up with a good strat for this fight, since back in Pandaria I never used it to power level pets. While looking through the net I came across this Lava Crab strat. Loved it because it's so stupid yet effective (not to confuse with efficient :D ). One time indeed, but hey it's an alternative to bring elekk plushie along if you don't have the other pets for it!
