Bloat Strategies for Family Fighter
These are simple strategies to defeat Bloat for the Family Fighter achievement. Note that you can fight all these pets regardless of whether their world quest is up or not, so you can grind out the whole achievement in one day if you really want to. These strategies assume all of your pets are level 25 and of Rare quality.
Bubble. Stampede. Use Fish Slap until Squirky dies (usually you’ll get about 2 hits in). Bring in Bonkers. Use Bite twice, then Bonkers will die. Use Deflection. Then use Triple Snap until Bloat goes down. Should only take one hit.
Any Dragonkin with Lift-Off or an Ethereal/Phase Shift/Evanescence ability, that is FASTER than 291 speed. I’m using a Wild Crimson Hatchling with 325 speed.
Same as above. I’m using an Albino Chimaeraling with 325 speed.
Lift-Off right away to avoid his big nuke. Use an attack ability (I’m using Tail Sweep) until your first pet dies. Bring in your second speed pet and use a basic attack until it dies, making sure to track Antaen Cannon‘s cooldown so you can use Lift-Off when it comes off cooldown. Then Chrominius will come out, use Howl, then Bite a couple times. Bloat should go down.
Any Flying pet with a Beast type attack move and Lift-Off, WITH speed above 291. I’m using a Cockatiel with 341 speed.
Same as above. I’m using a Fledgling Oliveback with 292 speed.
Ikky (x,1,1) for backup. I never end up needing him.
Use Lift-Off. Thrash until your first pet dies. Bring in your second flier. Use Lift-Off if Antaen Cannon is back up, otherwise fill with an attack.
Haunt. Bring in Val’kyr. Curse of Doom. Switch to your Squirrel. Use Stampede. Corpse Explosion. If Bloat is not dead, just bring any of your other two pets and just use filler attacks. One or two hits should be enough.
This is more like a priority system. First use Burrow, Flurry, then Dodge. Flurry twice. Burrow. Dodge. Flurry three times. If your first bunny dies, bring in the next one. Burrow as Antaen Cannon’s cooldown comes up, Dodge two rounds after, and fill the rest with Flurry.
Eldritch Manafiend (1,2,2)
Any Magic Pet with Arcane Blast and Surge of Power, preferably with a speed of >291. I’m using a Energized Manafiend with 325 speed.
A mana worm type of pet with Feedback, Amplify Magic, and Deflection. I’m using an Arcane Gorger.
Soulrush. Arcane Blast twice. Surge of Power. Bring in second pet. If your second pet is faster, you can Arcane blast twice again, and then use Surge of Power. Otherwise just Arcane Blast once and use Surge of Power. Use Deflection if Antaen Cannon is about to go off on your worm. Amplify Magic. Use Feedback 2-3 times until Bloat goes down.
A Beast pet with Poison Fang and >291 speed. I’m using a Black Kingsnake.
A Zandalari Anklerender or Zandalari Kneebiter with more than 291 speed, with the moves Black Claw and Hunting Party.
Any Beast type pet for backup just in case. I just brought another Zandalari.
Poison Fang. Switch to first Zandalari. Black Claw. Hunting Party.
Dive. Gnaw until your first pet dies. Bring in your second. Gnaw until Antaen Cannon comes up. Dive. Rinse, repeat, win.
