Tiny Terrors – Cursed Spirit

Tiny Terrors – Cursed Spirit

The key to defeating this pet’s team is survivability. I used the standard howl-bomb team for this fight.
Cursed Spirit

My Team   
Pet Ability 1 Ability 2 Ability 3
Pandaren Water Spirit Water Jet Whirlpool Geyser
Chrominius* Bite Howl Ravage
Emerald Whelpling** Emerald Bite Emerald Presence Emerald Dream
 

*Pretty much any pet that has “Howl” will work here
**Another option is the Emerald Proto-Whelp

Because the Cursed Spirit is an undead pet, he will come back to life for one round after you kill him. Typically, this means he gets to reapply the Fel Corruption buff to his team, which means you have to deal with a full 10 rounds of the damage reduction on the backline pets. This is why being able to survive is key. The backline pets are sitting there pounding on you, and you are dealing reduced damage to them for 10 rounds. The Emerald Whelpling’s move set is great for survivability because you can apply the Emerald Presence damage reduction to yourself, and then heal up to almost full health with Emerald Dream. You just have to make sure you watch your health and use Emerald Dream in time. Also, the Emerald Whelpling’s Emerald Bite is up against Flying, so once the Fel Corruption falls off the opposing pets you can hit them like a truck. c:

Against Cursed Spirit:

Cursed Spirit uses Fel Corruption
Pandaren Water Spirit uses Geyser

Cursed Spirit uses Ghostly Bite, which stuns him
Pandaren Water Spirit uses Whirlpool

Swap to Chrominius
Cursed Spirit is stunned still

Cursed Spirit uses Death Coil
Chrominius uses Howl – this will apply Shattered Defenses so that when Geyser and Whirlpool hit they do massive damage. This should almost, if not completely, kill Cursed Spirit. Geyser also stuns Cursed Spirit, so you have a chance to get another hit off

Chrominius uses Bite

Cursed Spirit is an undead, so he will come back to life for one round after you kill him. Whatever you use at this point is irrelevant as he cannot be brought below one health. However, at the end of the round he will die. He will most likely be able to get another round of Fel Corruption off, so the backline pets will have a full 10 rounds of the damage reduction buff on them. This is why you need survivability. During this time you will not be able to do much damage unless Shattered Defenses is applied to them, so surviving until Fel Corruption falls off is very important.

First backline pet (mine was an Uncommon Bloodbeak P/P with Slicing Wind, Flyby, and Lift-Off):

Bloodbeak uses Lift-Off
Chrominius’ attack will miss because Bloodbeak is in the air; I used Bite. If Howl is not off cooldown, DO NOT use it here, as it will miss, and you will have to wait for it to cooldown again.

Bloodbeak’s Lift-Off divebombs Chrominius
Chrominius uses Howl

Bloodbeak uses Slicing Wind
Most likely Chrominius will die Swap to Pandaren Water Spirit to take a hit

Bloodbeak uses Slicing Wind
Pandaren Water Spirit dies

Swap to Emerald Whelpling. Now it’s time to go into survival mode until Fel Corruption falls off
Bloodbeak uses Flyby – this applies Weakened Defenses to Emerald Whelpling
Emerald Whelpling uses Emerald Presence – this is for damage reduction

Bloodbeak uses Slicing Wind
Emerald Whelpling uses Emerald Dream – this is to heal you up while waiting for Fel Corruption to end

Bloodbeak uses Flyby – Weakened Defenses is re-applied
Emerald Whelpling is still dreaming. Yay more heals!

Bloodbeak uses Lift-Off
Emerald Whelpling wakes up, and should be almost at full health now

Bloodbeak’s Lift-Off dive bombs your Whelpling
Emerald Whelpling uses Emerald Presence

Bloodbeak uses Flyby
Emerald Whelpling uses Emerald Bite (super nice because it’s a Magic ability and is up against Flying) Fel Corruption ends – now it’s time to do some damage!

Bloodbeak uses Flyby
Emerald Whelpling uses Emerald Bite again

This should bring Bloodbeak below half health, which does two things: Bloodbeak loses his speed advantage, and Emerald Whelpling gains his Dragonkin buff for one round.

Emerald Whelpling uses Emerald Bite Should kill Bloodbeak. If it doesn’t Bite again next round.

Second backline pet (mine was an Uncommon Waterfly H/S with Barbed Stinger, Healing Stream, and Lift-Off):

Now you can pretty much just Emerald Bite away. However, you want to keep your Emerald Presence up (damage reduction) and if you start getting low on health (i.e. around half health), then you should use Emerald Dream to heal up before continuing your Biting.

Waterfly uses Healing Stream
Emerald Whelpling uses Emerald Bite – this should kill the waterfly, but if it doesn’t just use Emerald Bite again.
