Any ideas on good starter Battle Pet trio?

(Locked)

Was hoping to find some good ideas on a solid trio to start with. I have all but the first collectors edition pets and most of the orphan week pets, plus all the ones they sell on BattleNet.

At the moment, I have Frosty from Lich King CE, the Fetish Shaman and Legs, all at about level 7ish.

I notice the winter reindeer has heals, so I was wondering if I need a kind of mini group of tank, heals and dps.

I have no problem experimenting on my own but they take so long to level up, would like to get a good start. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I read in a strat guide that the best combo is a humanoid, a critter, and a flyer i think it was because of how their relative strenghts against each type (flyers are strong against critters, etc).

I think it was in the prima guide, but I am not at home.

And of course, it's always situational depending on what you are fighting.

There is a Prima guide? I'd sure like to find something like that. I am an old man and never did the whole Pokemon thing, so this is all new to me.

Preferably 3 pets of different classification with attacks that cover a variety of weaknesses.

Most effective if you're character's name is Dave.

I'd highly recommend nabbing a squirrel as a started pet. They have a very nice ability that hits 3 times and places a DoT on any enemy pet that is currently in the fight. It persists on any others that the other player swap out as well.

The clockwork gnome from archaeology works pretty well too.

I didn't choose my first pet. I'm not sure what criteria it used, but I had my Tranquil Mechanical Yeti in my first slot so I just went with it. He's worked out pretty well so far. Lots of health and decent damage.

That sounds pretty cool.

I trapped a Redridge Rat (uncommon) last night that had an ability called Stampede where a bunch of rats whack the other pet as they run by, trouble is it lasts for 3 turns and the rat was dead after 3 turns and you can't swap him out.

Neth, just so you and the other CM's know, there's no option for the Pet Battles section off of the mouse-over drop down list when cursoring over the Forums word on any given forum page.

I've been keeping an eye on this; I do see the one on the main Forums page.

I myself am thinking of going with a Blizzcon themed one. Just need to open the third slot for Murkablo.

I'm seeing the option now. Probably a stealth fix.

It probably just took a little bit to show. :) Thanks for the heads-up though!

Thanks Neth, all I had seen previously was the "Beta" version for pet battle, appreciate it, reposted there.

I've been checking for the intervening time between your post and my reply here; I don't see it yet. Thanks for the thanks, and you're welcome, Neth ^_^

That's a pretty cool idea, wonder if it's viable. I have all but the first Blizzcon pets, plus the Diablo and StarCraft ones as well.
