Fluxfire Feline replacement suggestions

Ok, so FFF S/S has been a staple of my tamer dailies for all of 5.1. Since it looks like it will be pretty useless in 5.2, I have been playing with some potential replacements. Nothing is a slam dunk, but here are the best situational ones I have found.

Cogblade raptor S/S breed
Enchanted Broom S/S (upgraded to rare)
Darkmoon Tonk
Darkmoon Zep
Feline Familiar (upgraded to rare)

Gonna miss the simplicity and speed of using FFF in every battle. But I guess that's the nature of being OP.

Any other suggestions?

I will probably switch between the Broom and the Zeppelin, with a chance of maybe some Warbot action.

If you had Mini Thor, well... then Mini Thor.

He is next on my list to upgrade! Curse you, ever-elusive mech stone.

If you only play super strong pets you'll never learn to be a good pet battler.

FFF was just over the top OP the way most people played it.

He's not asking about it for pvp battles. It's perfectly reasonable to want to use high powered pets to make killing Legendary NPC pets with only two pets easier. Especially ones you kill every single day.

Definitely. I can win every tamer fight with Anubisath Idol + anything else, but it takes YEARS. It's way easier to use Fluxfire Feline and roflstomp their team.

Qiraji Guardling is going to be nice for pve once it becomes available.

I love my DM zep, it's been staple since day 1. Decoy is great for leveling purposes as well

True story - it has great breeds too. So far I've seen P/P, S/S, and H/P on the PTR.

I usually use 2 dragon whelps for efficiency. You don't run into a whole lot of human attacks there. Onyxia whelping has both defensive and offensive, can solo many trainers if you know the rotation. (I do this if I get lazy).

Netherwhelp (?) / Sprite Darter Hatchling might be fun with Equalize move too if those new bosses will have thousands of hp's.

With the Pandaren Tamers (non Spirits) I use almost exclusively An Oily Slimeling, Crow and FFF, usuallyusing just 1 pet each Tamer. Nishi is a bit different, I solo her with my Pandaren Water Spirit and get some free levels for a lowbie.

Before the FFF was 25, I used Grunty and Lil' XT without too much trouble and I imagine since the PVP whinepatrol has whined the FFF into the nerfmachine that Grunty and Lil'XT (or any of the other various 25s I have) will do just fine.

But honestly, I'm about done with PVP !@#$% fests spoiling my PvE fun in this game.

Are you new to mmos? There will always be balance changes. And don't think that fff was only changed because pvp. It was clearly op.
