These are simple strategies to defeat Pilfer 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.
