you want another pet with tidal wave just in case in your second slot. plenty to pick from. sometimes you have to pass to avoid killing the front pet too soon...

Killing the front pet is no big deal; another pet will become the front pet.

I think the Left Shark died on me once when I was farming Stratholme, but I had two more pets to finish it off. No problem.

The point is, that when you let the front pet alive and you kill the back pets before the front pet dies, you don't have to deal with all those other pets. Of course it's no problem when front pet dies, but if it doesn't the fight is a lot shorter

I had a similar issue. The backline pets kept replacing and the fight never ended till all my pets were dead. This fight can bug in a really horrible way.

You can easily replace the Left Shark with a Glittering Diamondshell if you like. (Just use healing wave where the strat says Rain dance)

This worked for me for weeks, but recently (last 2-3 weeks) has been failing.

Edit: I guess I was having some unlucky streaks there - Left Shark solo'd this week w/o Chuck's help. (edited)

I've used this too. The Left Shark doesn't always solo it, depending what pets materialise in the opposition. It usually gets most of the way through, though. Pretty much any pet with a self-heal should be able to finish it for you.

I had a couple unlucky weeks in a row too where Left Shark was dying early. I put my second pet as a dragon with Arcane Storm to finish off the back row pets ezpz.

I modified the TD Script so that if your Left Shark dies it will bring in pet number 2 and attack to finish off the fight.

ability(Rain Dance:1062) [ round>2 ]
ability(Water Jet:118) [enemy(#2).dead & enemy(#3).dead]
ability(Tidal Wave:419)
if [self(#2).active]
use(#1)
endif
if [self(#1).dead]
change(next)
endif

Strat worked well, second pet finished front pet off with one attack. So happy to have a strat featuring Left Shark as the main pet! Thank you so much! My husband has three left sharks, so was even happier than I.

I don't think this strat should be tagged "long" since it's significantly faster than the other strats.

Just a note that I'm in the process of doing the dungeon and the AOE method (at least for me) no longer stops the extra pets from spawning. They came as something of a shock, since I didn't know they were supposed to!

Did you kill the active pet before the backline? Both backline pets have to be dead before the active pet, or it doesn't work. I just ran this dungeon yesterday a few times, and the AoE worked just fine.

I did that last week. Rookie error. This week I followed strat to the letter and was fine.
