The quest A New Darkmoon Challenger! was added to the Darkmoon Faire in patch 6.0.2.
Your opponent Christoph VonFeasel has three pets:
If defeated, he rewards a Greater Darkmoon Pet Supplies which has a chance to contain Syd the Squid!
After you have defeated him, his flavour text when you speak with him is:
"Look at my horse, isn't it magnificent? My partner over there doesn't even HAVE a horse. Turn your face from them now, and look back at me. Still on a horse! Aren't you amazed? And look at how great my hat is!"
Syd is easy to tear up with any of the Zandalari pets. I arbitrarily picked Zandalari Kneebiter and got him down quickly. Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling is the double-counter pet for magic opponents, but I killed Syd quicker and more reliably with the raptor every time; I never failed to kill Syd once before my guy died, but my Dragonling died on Syd several of times.
For Mr. Pointy, I used my Dragon Kite, although I've heard moths are pretty strong against him. I didn't have as strong a fights using a moth, so I swapped to the kite which did well and even left me a vocano over for Otto.
I thoroughly creamed the cow using an S/S Crow.
My Crow wasn't high enough level, so I used Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling (1,2,2), Clockwork Rocket Bot (1,1,1) and Effervescent Glowfly. (2,2,2). I managed to the latter's Glowing Toxin on all the opponents by careful swapping and a helping of luck. Very tought fight, only the Clockwork survived!
Although undead pets now take a 25% penalty to damage during their immortal round, this still works.
I used the following pets:
I don't know what Blizz did, but last patch and forward has seen me 100% lose to VonFeasel's team with this set-up. I'm beginning to think that I need to actually look at my rocket bot's breed now.Edit: I finally just sat down and went through all my mechanical-family pets, as Mr. Pointy and Otto were the huge block points to completing the pet battle. Here is the team and strategy that at last clinched my win.
Pets - all Rare quality:
Probably not 100% win every time, but I plan to use it for now.
