Day 2 – Pet Battles

As part of Navi’s Ten Days of Pet Battles:

Day 2:  What pets don’t you like and why?

This is an easy one. There are lots of models I don’t particularly like in-game which have already been discussed in other posts like the frogs and infested bear cub. I’d also have to include spiders and cockroaches to that list even though spiders are very effective to use. Just don’t get me started on trying to get a rare version of those green spiders in Krasarang Wilds. Ekk!

Clock'em

But then there are the ones that are quite unique in their look or ability to collect like Clock’em. For a pet that takes some skill to get, I would have hoped that it had some sort of unique ability that’s well worth the choice for using a mechanical pet, but it doesn’t. The Clockwork Gnome which looks very similar, seems to have a more effective skillset.

Crawling Claw

Another pet would have to be my Crawling Claw which is still one of my favourite looking pets but falls short of the mark in terms of abilities. Even so, it was still the first undead I levelled to full.

  1. I saw your Day 3 first and thought… where is Day 2? Aha found it! I am also disappointed in the claw but as an undead, I was disappointed with the lot of them!

    • I wasn’t going to do it since I didn’t have much to write. :)

  2. YES! The claw makes it on another list!

    One day we need to fight them. I need to see if my Crawling Claw can redeem himself. I am too scared to try again with Navi’s evil claw!

    • I’ve only had one proper match with Navi’s claw (where it was planned). I’d say “name the time and place” but I’m sure we’ll run into each other without even trying before too long :P

  3. Omg – I *hate* that little mechanical “shoots everything all the time” pet in your first picture! Which probably goes to show it’s a great pet to have, because I hate coming up against it!

    • I used my Clockwork Gnome a lot while levelling up but it’s since been replaced by other mechanicals.
