Taming Outland #3: Next Stop Nagrand!

Welcome to Nagrand. Pay no attention to those floating bits of landscape. It's fine here, really. Everything's fine...

So yeah. That visit to the mushroom people was nice. Ras’an didn’t seem to take that whole “killing his third cousin, twice removed” thing too personally. Now it’s time to meet Narrok, The Friendly Orc. Hopefully your pets have another level under their belts. Because he may be friendly, but he still doesn’t want to lose.


Meet the Tamer

So have you told DEHTA about this whole "fight to the death thing?" And they're totally okay with it??

I’m not really sure about this guy. Narrok natters on and on about how he’s trying to help his new little friends, and how they’ve “suffered enough,” or something. But then again, he’s out there putting them in the middle of a fight to the death. Not exactly DEHTA friendly, if you know what I mean!


The Abilities

Meet Prince Wart. They say you gotta kiss alot of frogs, before you something your something-or-other. I forget really, but it involves frogs, and kissing. Lots of kissing.

Prince Wart is your typical frog. Which mean’s he’s an Aquatic pet that kisses you alot until you turn into a frog. Or beat the stuffing out of him and he dies. If you have a Flying pet, they’ll make quick work of him. A Magic pet is also good. Avoid using Undead as his Tongue Lash and Swarm of Flies are both bad for them. Use Elemental pets with care.

Meet Dramaticus. He's a total drama queen. He's also furry.

Dramaticus is the easiest of the three. He does a fair bit of damage, but doesn’t have any damage avoidance abilities like Burrow. He does do Crouch which reduces his damage taken by 50%. Which just means he lives 1–2 more turns before your Beast pet can eat him. Keep out of reach of Undead pets.

Meet Stompy. He's a Beast!

He’s a Beast!

Stompy is the guy that keeps this fight from being completely EZ Mode. He hits like a truck. Especially when he’s below 50% as he has the normal Beast buff, and Trumpet Strike which boosts his damage by an additional 25%. Keep him out of reach from any Critter pets, obviously.

If you can, you should try and back-load your abilities so that you burn through that last 50% of his health ASAP. Any damage reducing abilities you can use are also good. If you have a Mechanical or Flying pet, this is the pet to put them on.

In Summary, the fight is pretty straightforward. Either you have enough health and damage to get through his last pet, or you probably need to level a bit more or try a different composition. Or it could be just bad RNG.

He's not dead, he's just resting! Okay, fine I'll loan you a Pet Bandage...
