I have 3 of my little blue babies now and I am undefeated in pvp. One super fast breed and 2 mid in all but 2nd highest speed stat.

Little goblin with the 3 Slayers er.. Flayers, that's me out there.

Right now I only finish 1 out of 2 battles because folks just run. Your undead won't stop this nah nah nah lol.

Hit me up to battle.

Thanks for letting us know. Hopefully, the Flayer will get nerfed soon enough to be balanced.

Lol l must have fought you then in a PvP match up cause they had 3 Flayers, and the all three Flayers ended up taking dirt naps.

My team was
Feline Familer (rare)
Murkablo
Restless Shadling (rare)

Flayers are ok, but not great. Alot of people seem obsessed with the skill Reflect. Other pets have Reflect, like the Anubisath Idol, Mana Wyrmling, Soul of the Aspects, and Shimmering Wyrmling.

Now with PvP fight if you know how to use the Flayer they can be pretty good, however ive taken mine of my Trainer Daily rotation casue non of it multi-attacks (Blitz and Triple Snap) seem to hit more then once on Trainer pets.

Honestly, I'd wager half of the teams out there could beat triple Flayer teams.

Flayers are weak against a ton of different pets, so stacking three of them will lose very hard to a lot of comps, especially since Undeads are so popular now.

A funnier 3x comp to try would be 3x Feline Familiar.

Haha yeah. If other people say the team is definitely beatable, I will take it. I've yet to go against three flayers, but I guess there are a lot of combinations which outpace Reflect spamming.

Im with OP...i have a 3 Flayer team, but not all have Reflect. The 5 round 100% hit is awesome.

Just a quick question! I finally picked up my first rare Flayer last night, as well as my first Humanoid stone. What exactly is the ideal stats for Flayers? Super speedy speed ones?

Thanks!

I like speed, but speed does not affect reflect - reflect will also activate 'first' in a round. The one flayer I use is the max speedy version, just because I like going first on my pets as much as possible, and it helps in the event I choose Blitz for a fight.

Yes the breed 5 (super speedy) is generally agreed upon to be the best for PvP. You get to go first so you can utilize kick. For PvE I don't think it matters as much.

I've seen a couple three flayer teams. Beaten them all. One forfeited after the first flayer died. I don't even remember what comp I was running. I know it was just random pets and not one of my usual teams.

An excellent pet isn't going to make up for dumb gameplay. I'm not saying that to be mean but running 3 flayers, esp suboptimal breeds, just isn't too smart.

I doubt you'll do well against any team that hits hard. Those little hits for 146 aren't going to be doing a lot of damage, even if you get to reflect once every 5 rounds.

A breed 5 (fast) Flayer is really, really good when played well.

3 Flayers, however, is stupid.

Frankly I'm sick of Flayers.

Every other damn team I fight has a Flayer in it. It's old.

I hope they do nerf the damn things, they're far too "flavor of the month" at the moment. It's gone somewhat viral. One flayer kicks someone's !@#, and then that person gets one thinking they're over-powered, and then so on and so forth...

I've killed a few. A few have killed me. Either way, I'm sick of seeing them.

And then the 3x Fluxfire Feline teams will still chew through your flayers.

I have only lost one battle so far with 3 and was completely my own miss planning. I let someone with a Fluxfire Feline use the triple stack combo twice and killed 2 pets, he was down to one with me having 2. Had I reflected either of the 2 big damage which could have both but didn't then it would have ended. I actually missed 2 kicks in a row that would have cost him the match not me so excuses maybe but valid. Also this was the first time I had ever fought the cat so as I learn rotations I can time stuns and reflects better.

Crawling Claw will not beat the whole team as I beat undead all the time including claws. With fast Slayers(tm lol teasing). I save reflect for highest damage moves to avoid them, not just spam it. Also I kick on cooldown almost always. People underestimate the self healing of human especially when wasting other side turns with damage but taking none.

Another trick for the Slayer enthusiasts(which might be obvious) is when you reflect a stun move swap to your other one and fresh kick and reflect. Also if you don't have all 325 speed try to time it so your fast one comes out with the other teams to ensure kicks always are efficient.

Btw I give all this information because I do like the pvp queues and they are already boring since most people just run and literally have lost only one fight in a week. Maybe in time some sort of tournaments or pet valor or actual valor etc from battles? Something besides literally nothing lol.

I know it's new and not complaining because in fact I do more pet stuff than other atm, just hoping for it to grow.

My fastest speed blue infinite, Fluxfire now, etc waiting for their time. For now though the age of the Slayer... lol
