I already had a working strategy for the Elekk carry based on TOPAZG’s Shale Hatchling team from http://wod.wowhead.com/achievement=9069#comments but it can take forever when the Gift Package misses very often (and it did for me). This is okay because you won’t use Celestial Tournament trainers for pet leveling and only have to do it once you’ve got your Elekk Plushie, but I wanted something faster and found this:
I use the Teroclaw Hatchling, one of the new pets in the expansion but I think this will not be a problem because it’s a simple pick up thing from a nest in Talador… I predict it will take you much longer to get your Plushie than have a Teroclaw Hatchling with each of your Level 90 alts 😉 So here’s what you need to know…
- Spawn of G’nathus (Swallow You Whole, Dive, Thunderbolt)
- Teroclaw Hatchling (Alpha Strike, Dodge, Nature’s Ward)
- Elekk Plushie
Au will use Goldskin first so Dive isn’t the best idea for your first attack. We start with a Thunderbolt to damage the whole enemy team (effective on Lil’ B) and then Dive. Now 2-3x Swallow You Whole (one in two will be weak because of Goldskin) and Au should be dead already. When you face Banks, use another Thunderbolt to do as much damage as possible to Lil’ B.
When your pet dies, bring the Hatchling and start with Nature’s Ward to weaken the Make it Rain damage. Now we could try to be more effective but I don’t want to be surprised by coin-crits that steal my Flying passive, so I refresh Nature’s Ward 1 round before it fades, Dodge and Alpha Strike as filler.
When my Hatchling is facing Lil’ B, I refresh Nature’s Ward when Extra Plating is off cooldown and Dodge when the Gift Package was thrown (we don’t wanna see the heal, so dodging the package would be bad *g*) and Alpha Strike as filler. If you already triggered the Failsafe you can shorten the thing a bit by not refreshing Nature’s Ward but only do that if you’re sure your Alpha Strike will kill Lil’ B (thinking of Extra Plating). Good luck!
(maybe I will try an Emperor Crab when Blingtron 4000 is there the next time, seen a video where it deals with Banks an Lil’ B much faster than the Shale Hatchling and maybe faster than the Teroclaw Hatchling)
