Meet Blacksting, the famous red and black wasp from Zangamarsh. He has a unique, gorgeous skin, and in the wild will sting you turning you completely black for several seconds with his sting.
Who will win?
We watched for parries; wasp put in a credible performance, but he was not able to match the cat (or the devilsaurs) performance on either the level 60 or level 70 target dummy.
Level 60 target dummy
growl only – cat 216dps wasp 212dps
growl and focus dump – cat 264dps wasp 238dsp
special skill only – cat 301dps wasp 253dps
Focus dump and special – cat 360dps wasp 304dps
Level 70 dummy
growl only – cat 82dps wasp 92dps
growl and focus dump – cat 131dps wasp 132dsp
special skill only – cat 146dps wasp 97dps
Focus dump and special – cat 180dps wasp 142dps
However, we were still pretty impressed with Blacksting. Using him without his hunter doesn’t fully utilize the benefit of his family skill. Lowering the armor of your opponent benefits the hunter as well as the pet, whereas the cat and devilsaurs family skills benefit the pet only. At the moment, Blacksting and Smaug have done enough to keep their feet in the stable slot and avoid the abandon button – but will the next challenger unseat them? Stay tuned for the next installment of Battle of the Pets! Round 3 – the reigning defender CatWithNoName takes on the nether ray – no other than Count Ungula.
