I’m compiling this list of Tanaan Pet Teams I use, for my ease as well as my husband’s. Most are from Wowhead so I’ll be giving credit/linking comments. I’m not trying to steal anyone else’s discoveries but as I said, to make a list easy and readable. I’m also not ashamed of using the powerful howl-bomb strategy, so at least half the fights will be that or some variation thereof. Even those will have a variation on whether Chrominimus Bites of uses Surge of Power.
The pets needed for this: Zandalari Anklerender, Chrominimus, Anubisath Idol, Pandaren Water Spirit, Nexus Whelpling, Draenic Micro Defender, Emerald Whelpling, Alpine Foxling [or other fox]
Been meaning to make this post for a few days now… but got caught up with events over the weekend….
I logged on last Friday not truly expecting to have a real shot at the pet. I mean, at 9 AM on my main server there were probably about 15 people milling abouts. Within about twenty minutes the spawn next to me popped and three of us somehow managed to get the achievement off it… Apparently we all clicked right at that same milli-second or something? And it was even a green quality to top it off.
Since I had such luck with that spawn, I then took myself over to Northrend and did a few circuits on a couple different servers and managed to snag an Unborn Val’kyr – poor quality – but I got a stone to bump it up to rare as well.
One thing that I found interesting was the comparison of low pop server versus low pop CRZ. Thorium Brotherhood, my old server, is rather… low pop but the spawns were hideous there [farming one for the hubby]
On Azuremyst, which has much more people than ThoBro, there were fewer people camping and the spawns seemed more frequent.
And while I didn’t check out Argent Dawn with this pet, which is a high pop server, it’s also the one where I went over to Felwood and found two Minfernals just sitting and waiting for people to come by. I also got my Giraffe Calf and Spawn of Onyxia on there, just flying through the zones.
Partly so I can easily remember, and partly because I want to share how I defeated the trainers.
Burning Pandaren Spirit – Townlong Steppes
Rapana Whelk to counter Pandaren Fire Spirit
Anubisath Idol to counter Crimson [Dragonkin]
Anubisath will likely be able to face off against the third Glowy [Flying] as well, depending on luck but any dragonkin in the third spot would be good or a Flayer Hatchling
Flowing Pandaren Spirit – Dread Wastes
Disgusting Oozling is immensely effective against the first two – Marley [Aquatic] and Tiptoe [Critter]
I usually tack on both the Anubisath Idol and the Flayer Whelpling to pick up when the oozling dies.
Whispering Pandaren Spirit – Jade Forest
Deathtalon Whelpguard to counter Dusty [Flying]
Anubisath Idol to counter Whispertail [Dragonkin]
Lil Tarecgosa to counter the Pandaren Air Spirit
I usually only need two of the above, but I have the third just in case
Thundering Pandaren Spirit – Vale
Dancing Water Skimmer to counter the Pandaren Earth Spirit [Press Pump 4 times and he’s dead – first press amps damage, second hit him]
Egbert to counter Sludgy
Flayer Whelpling to counter Darnak the Tunneler
Egbert usually survives long enough to do a little damage to Darnak and eat his first burrow.
