Taming Eastern Kingdoms #10: Into the Swamp

Welcome to the Swamp of Sorrows: Population 10M Bugs + YOU!

Welcome to the Swamp of Sorrows: Population 10M Bugs + YOU!

Only three tamers left so we’re on the home stretch. I suppose a slightly unstable Blood Elf tamer wandering around the middle of the swamp babbling about finding Great Secrets™ should be a surprise at this point.

But after battling Creepy Spider Guy, Undead Mad Scientist Guy (complete with an authentically creepy “Are you my Mummy?” Gas Mask), and Crazy Draenei Death Knight Chick, a conspiracy minded Blood Elf wandering around ancient ruins is just par for the course. In fact, she’s probably one of the more stable tamers in the Eastern Kingdoms.

After meeting Everessa, you gotta ask: are pet battles making them crazy, or do crazy people just love to battle pets?

The Abilities

This fight is actually pretty easy. You can take them at level 15 for sure. If you have a good matchup, you can maybe try them at 14, but it’s probably not worth it.

Dampwing is your typical flyer. She doesn’t have a cocoon or other damage avoiding abilities. Just Moth Balls which damages and slows your pet down, Adrenaline Rush which makes her go faster, and Alpha Strike a flying damage ability which does extra damage if she attacks first. Just put a Magic or strong DPS pet on her and you’re set. Obviously, keep Aquatic pets away from her.

Croaker is a moderately annoying Aquatic pet. He has Frog Kiss which does increasing damage the more times he uses it and has a chance to turn your pet into a (useless) frog. He also has Tongue Lash and Swarm of Flies which can do a fair amount of critter damage.

Put a Flying pet on him, if you have one, and avoid using Undead or Elemental pets against him. Otherwise, just damage him down and don’t be afraid to swap.

Anklor is your typical snake pet. He doesn’t even burrow. He just hits you with his Poison Fangs and then bites you to death. Keep out of reach of Critters and if you have a Mechanical pet, he’s super easy mode.

In summary, this tamer should be easy for most compositions. Just pay attention to matchups and you’ll be fine.

The truth is out there, Everessa! You keep looking for those secrets (preferably far away from me...)
