This will take a while, since you'll lose a hit every time he blinds you. By using Cauterize when blind, you do manage to save a bit of time. That said, Atherton only have one attack that does damage, and it's on a long cooldown, so Cauterize is easily able to keep up. By the time Atherton is dead, there won't be much left of the rest of his team.

It might be interesting to experiment with a S/S Bound Stream (1,1,2) in slot one using Healing wave and Tidal Wave. That has the advantage of 341 speed making it faster than Atherton, so you only lose one round to his blind.

This has a Yellow tag for Shadowlands readiness. It appears to still be working, could some kind soul let me know the cause of the readiness tag, so I can see if it can be addressed. Thanks.

This strategy has been built to be as fast as possible.
Long
The strategy takes a while. Sit back, get yourself a warm drink and relax the scenery.
Not every strategy can be bullet proof. This is one of them. You might have to restart it, since there are some random elements that increase the risk of your pets failing. Don't blame them, please!

OK in SL: Uncommon (Green) B/B Lava Crab killed the enemy team in 26 rounds, but the outcome was never in doubt: the enemy health was steadily going down, own health was periodically back to full, never below half or so.

I was skeptical because magma wave does so little damage, but between the heal, and Atherton only having one damage-dealing ability (and it on a very long cooldown), this worked beautifully. Kudos to an unusual strat!

Didn't have the Lava Crab at 25 so used Pandaren Fire Spirit with the same setup as the Crab.

Note from creator - this strategy needs the "Long" tag added to it, because it does take a while.

I wish I would have had my Bound Stream leveled - your suggestion sounds most interesting. Regardless, after the trauma of the Elemental battle with the sharks, (Not So Bad Down Here), I will be forever appreciative of slow and steady and Successful!
