I don’t see a whole lot of old names here. I quit WoW some time ago, came back a two years later, left again, and now, about two years later, here I am again. Those that go back that far might remember me as Loncis, a Draenei Shaman (a toon I have since deleted).
But onto my question: There’s certain pets that we can collect three of that can pretty reliably bring down just about NPC pet boss in the game. I don’t think any of them will work consistently, each and every time, but can overcome most challenges.
For instance, when I was in Zuldazar, I was pet battling a female Tortollan. I didn’t feel like looking up the strat on Xu-Fu, but I saw a flyer in her ranks, so, I just loaded up three P/P Nexus Whelplings and scored myself a win.
Is there a word for pet lineups, three of the same pet, that we use to just roll over pet bosses when we can’t remember the more elegant strats?
I have a few candidates that I use for this.
Nexus Whelplings, Infinite Whelplings, Mechanical Dragonling, Timeless Mechanical Dragonling, Emperor Crabs, etc.
I just refer to them as my Hoover teams, since they vacuum everything up. But is there a name we have for these three slush teams of the same pet that we use to fairly reliably take down anything?
Singing Sunflower isn’t one of them, though. That’s used for PvP purposes, and doesn’t usually score a win; they just aggravate the opponent into forfeiting. (I looked at someone’s pet collection during my previous return once. And I noticed she named her Singing Sunflower “Annoying,” which made me laugh. That about covers them.)
