10 Days of Pet Battling Day 4 - Most Epic Pet Battles
This post is part of my 10 Days of Pet Battles series.
There are so many close calls, so many captures that some of them blur in my memory. I think most people who struggled so long for their Minfernal remember exactly what they were doing when they caught their first and only one. I have only 3 battles which seem to stick in my memory.
It was a Monday. There was a Laid Back Raid happening and I had just caught my Arctic Fox kit thanks to Repgrind, and I was just swapping to my mage to move her away from Storm Peaks and go and camp over Minfernal and there was one there! I even stopped talkng to JD in mid sentence to go battle..
JD was asking me something and I said "Can't talk! Minfernal!" And I swooped down, hoping nobody was there and battled - thank Goodness I didn't have my low level pets on or I would have lost it! When I got it I was so happy! Then I went to raid. And look who helped me with my capture - it's Aza, my Gregarious Grell!
Aza has saved me from many a tight spot - my other memorable battle involved him as well. It was a PvP battle, and I was getting flogged. 2 pets down, the other guy had 3 pets still up, though 2 were low health. Out came my Aza, and it was a close battle, but his phase shift and heal saved the day! I guess it was lucky his last pet was a dragon or I wouldn't have won that battle, and I was super lucky with dodges which I am sure he was swearing at me for! I was sure I was going to lose that fight, I don't know how I got so lucky. I told Ancient about my awesome Grell and how proud I was of him, which led to a chain of events culminating in this post.
Then of course, there is my battles for a Sumprush Rodent... attempting to do it in the middle of the Alliance area (because Veluxia was opening a box and she's alliance), and forgetting to fix my pets for it = you stupid idiot. The first time, I had my levelling pets on - one level 10 and one half dead 25 and the other was already dead /facepalm. I swapped in something quickly for the next one...
And look at that, it must be one of the few times I took out an undead for some exercise because Li'l KT is there in my team! And yes, it was a poor choice of team if you look carefully - 2 elementals and an undead versus a beast, a critter and an aquatic, but I think I was panicking at the time...
I am sure I will have many more epic battles to come. I need to remind myself to take screenshots though!
