I completely and utterly messed this up . . . accidentally headbutted Turbo so he stunned and swapped to Whiplash. Brought in Carp to take him out and then Hermit Crab finished off Turbo. Still won it first try!
I managed to diminish teh RNG on this fight by swapping the 'hard to get' Tiny Blue Carp for the cheaper but still easily obtainable Slithershock Elver, 1-1-2. It is preferred to use pet Tracker addon or any addon that shows opponent's pet's CD on skills, so you can play with that.
After the 'Pinch or death' line:
Bring in your Slithershock Elver
Prio 1: Dodge If Whiplast has 1 CD left on sandstorm, then on CD
Prio 2: Pump if his block is up or used, then pump next turn if coccon strike has 2+ on CD
Prio 3: Deep Bite in between
This worked beautifully. I think the original directions should be amended to use this and replace "Headbutt on CD" with just "Headbutt" because you don't want to use it more than once. Thanks for sharing this.
It took about 5 tries for me. I kept dying one turn too soon. There must be a breed dependency. It finally worked for me when Headbutt caused a stun and the flyer was swapped in. I was able to take out the flyer easily with the carp when the turtle died. The rest was trivial.
