Boss pets need a nerf

Blizz, I pay my sub too. I want to be able to do world quests without needing to hunt insanely rare mobs for the perfect dream team or it be automatically a defeat. AT the very least, legendary pet damage needs to be tuned way down. It’s hard to play any kind of strategy with 1 shotting enemnies.

You on Argus? Not really important, just wondering.
If you would, please name the Legendary you are having trouble with.

this was prince something in nazjatar. I soon found out that it was irrelevant if I brought pets that were “strong” against him. He 1 shots lvl 25 rares that he’s allegedly weak against (or very close) and heals. Pointlessly frustrating almost on par with the leylocked chests that haven o directions or even stated goals.

You must mean Prince Wiggletail. Yes he’s a tough one but easy to beat with 3 easy to get pets. I copied this pet battle strat from Wowhead. It’s a guaranteed win.

Google the name of the boss pet next time you get stuck, there’s a lot of help and winning strategies out there.

It’s Pokemon. If you field the correct counters, you can’t lose. If you don’t, you can’t win.

These are all the Prince Wiggletail strats up on Xu-Fu’s:

The UBV isn’t as rare as it used to be, and seems to work with just about any pet that can give you a Shattered Defenses buff. Even better if you have a pet with Black Claw.

yeah didn’t work thanks. Also what about someone who doesn’t have that magic 3 combo? I get making us want to counter humanoid with undead or whatever, but that’s excessively specific for a daily quest

If you want to get yourself a Darkmoon Zeppelin so you can actually try Elfinna’s strat for real, you can buy them for prize tokens at the Darkmoon Faire, which is on at the moment.
