For sharing your knowledge/experience/tips for the new fabled creatures pet quest. (Obviously don't read on if you don't want spoilers.)
Here are my notes on the five I was able to do this morning:
Valley of the Four Winds:
Lucky Yi - Critter - easy as heck
Greyhoof - Beast - nothing about this fight stands out, was medium-easy
Skitterer Xi'a - Aquatic - I found this one the hardest
Ka'wi the Gorger - Critter - slow speed
Nitun - Critter - slow speed
They're all orange level and they're all solo versus your team of three. I didn't write down hit points but I think they were all in the 4000's. I didn't write down coordinates either but they're all marked on the map if you're tracking the quest. Edit: they also have pet footprints on the map if you're tracking pets, gold instead of green.
They all hit HARD so bringing tanky/healing type pets is a good idea. I used Emerald Whelp/Azure Whelp/Crimson Whelp for all five because I find that versus really hard opponents actually using the appropriate pet type to counter the enemy is rarely as effective as just hitting them with the dragons (unless they're humanoid). I won on the first try each time. Could have easily 2-petted Lucky Yi, but ended Skitterer Xi'a with 2 pets dead and the last one with 43 hp.
Edited again to add: None of these cc'd me or used any abilities that seemed unusual or particularly exciting. They were more-or-less pets I'd seen before, but with supercharged damage and health.
