Those birds look mean but trust me, if you pit a Nexus Whelpling against them, they go down faster than you can hit a third spell!

The new Vibrant Gimmerfly and Wild Etherwyrm from Bastion are nice replacements that worked very well.

It might have been luck, but I used Arcane Storm first, then Mana Surge, and proceeded to watch my Nexus one-shot three pets in a row. Easily the most satisfying pet battle I have ever witnessed.

Used this strategy too and it seems to work, though under Shadowlands I did need an extra Tail Sweep.

People have said this before, but I'm curious about what works better with it? I have a PB Whelpling and by the time I have to Storm the second pet is already next to dead. The third pet gets hit with a dragon-racial storm and takes two tail swipes to go down.

Using Arcane Storm first causes the Mana surge to 1 shot each pet as it adds to the damage done by Mana Surge.

Arcane Winds are already up because Jahan uses AS too. That being said, I'd do some playing with racial… but Mana Surge's RNG on the top of the crit bonus can backfire and end in an overkill. Poor birds anyway!

Regardless of what some comments say, the strategy works best if followed as outlined. Don't switch 2 and 3 around. Good work.

I use Arcane Storm first, then Mana Surge. I do not need to use Tail Sweep.
This script do what it is suggested here.

TD Script:

ability(Mana Surge) [round=1]

This doesn't do what you suggested. This forces mana surge to go first. It also many mana surge weaker. You also need to remember that Jahan, the first enemy pet, casts Arcane Storm in the first round and that if Arcane Storm is cast with arcane winds active it does additional damage.

After 100 battles on this build and a new owner of a lvl 3 menagerie, I found it better to cast 3 then 2 about 60% of the time due to the crits and dragon kin dmg. Samm gets smashed this way. If you don't win with those cast 3 again to end the fight.

I have to lol because I did it with a lvl 20 and lvl 19 Nexus Whelplings. The 20 died but the 19 finished off with half health left. Had another lvl 19 waiting just in case but not needed. LOL
