  • Has the required stats (if specified)
  • Ignores specific breed requirements for the main pet, as breeds can be very different for substitutes

If the ionization-rate is constant for all ectoplasmic entities, we can really bust some heads... in a spiritual sense, of course.

I don't understand all the comments saying the Anklerender soloes this fight. My P/S Anklerender died to the Ectoplasm before Hunting Party could complete. Ecto hits like a truck with his 25% damage increase per turn and slaughtered Anklerender by turn 3.

However, the strat and TD Script still work, as Ecto only had about 51 health left. P/P EPW came out and finished off all 3 pets. Thanks!

The Anklerender soloing may depend on the breed of the Anklerender, RNG in the form of crits, and which two random backup pets you get. Some degree of randomness is built into everything that happens in pet battles. That's why we bring backup pets! :)

Thanks for responding, and since you're here - thanks also for your immense contribution to this site over the years. Found myself upvoting a lot of your old comments and strats that I found useful.

I have three Mechanical Pandaren Dragonlings (because man, are those things useful!), so I had one to use on this fight. It managed to solo the entire thing with breath, decoy, and thunderbolt.

Decoy on cooldown, spam breath until the ectoplasm dies, thunderbolt when the second pet comes out, then thunderbolt and decoy on cooldown afterward, breath between.

YMMV though, as I may have gotten lucky with RNG.

The Zandalari Kneebiter has the same attacks, but you'll have to go 2, 2, 1.

This has worked for me before, but tonight I ran across a problem. Hunting Party has a 4-round cooldown... so after the second enemy comes in, it is not available.

Not anymore, my P/P died before Glowing Ectoplasm was 80% and cost the entire fight and my emerald proto-whelp

Just a heads up for anyone using the script for this one: Because the strategy has you bringing in your second random pet, you'll need to manually run the fight for the second pet. When the second pet dies, the script will take back over. (Unless of course your second pet is an emerald proto-whelp or a dream whelpling!)
