  • Same family
  • Has the required skills
  • Has the required stats (if specified)
  • Ignores specific breed requirements for the main pet, as breeds can be very different for substitutes

This is the only strategy that has worked for me on this specific fight in the Shadowlands Prepatch. While it does have a small element of RNG (Praying that Gloamwing only hits your Gulp Froglet 1 time) this strategy has the LEAST amount of RNG of all the ones I have found. The only thing is that it is REQUIRED that your Gulp Froglet be of the H/P, or H/B Breed as the B/B breed cannot survive long enough. All and all thank you for this strategy and good luck as this is one of THE hardest fights. Be prepared to reset a few times!

This strategy cannot work anymore, because Gloamwing's first attacks are a total of 1722 damage (there is no range, fixed values). However the Gulp Froglet has only 1627 HP in any of the H breeds.

To anyone still needing this for the achievement, I did it with the strategy that uses some cheap new BfA pets (I used B/B Coastal Scuttler and S/S Hermit Crab): https://wow-petguide.com/?Strategy=2054 (edited)

It's not completely true. Benax(Guld p/h) like you said has 1627 hp. Predatory Strike hits for 1192 and slicing wind(each) hits for 397. However the slice can not hit more than once and nothing can crit of course. It's a really dumb fight with this particular achievement. This is the hardest one I've had so far in the entire game over all my years pet battling. The Gulp Frog I used had 1627 hp(p/h). It took me almost a couple of hours until I got the strat to work.

You MUST have a H/H breed Gulp Froglet for this strategy. The math just doesn't work out otherwise.

Did it with a Gulp Froglet H/P but this is RNG dependable, so give it at least 4 tries.

After all the RNG of getting gulp frog to do both moves, and benax his 2nd jet, I finally downed gloam with ghost shark using huge sharp teeth and blood in the water didnt have to dive first because benax took the predator hit after his second jet, but it is heavily rng dependant.

Gemllum posted the following on Battle.net and it worked for me on the first try.

All Strider Team (1 1 1)
** They must be slower than 300 **
I used a Dancing Water Skimmer and two Spring Striders, all 289 speed.

Here's his strat, verbatim from Battle.net:

*****

Strategy :
The first 3 rounds are used for some set up:
Round 1: pass
Round 2: soothe
Round 3: switch to your 3rd strider (If Gloamwing gets a triple hit, you may want to start over just to be safe.)

All 3 of your pets should be still alive. From now on repeat the following steps:
Step 1: Healing wave (At the beginning of the round Gloamwing is asleep for 2 turns)
Step 2: Water Jet (This looks like it breaks the sleep ...)
Step 3: Soothe ( ... but for some reason Gloamwing was very tired and decided to keep napping this round.)
Step 4: Gloamwing swaps your strider out.
Step 5: Go to Step 1.

*****

Be patient. It's a long fight.

My first 20 or so tries used one strider at 305 speed. Did not work. Went back to Val'Sharah and picked up a second Spring Strider with 289 speed. Worked on the first try...all striders were 50% health or above when finished. I ran it a second time just to make sure it wasn't a fluke: two of my striders died due to Void Gate crits, but I still beat him with my last strider.

This deserves moar upvotes! I just tested it, and while I think it could possibly fail to a Void Gate crit, it seems otherwise perfect. I always felt that the devs would not leave just the Gulp Froglet as their intended strat, and this is so imaginitive that I suspect this is the hidden gem they wanted us to find.

I don't think the devs actually beat all of the combinations. I think they release it live and see if our ingenuity is up to fixing the problem and then discretely nerf the pet.

gbh102, you are right. Gemllum's strat did originally work beautifully, and was entered here as a full strat on Xu-Fu's, but Blizz effectively nerfed the effects of Soothe, and broke this strat. Pity.

Joe wrote on 2017-11-26 23:57:02

This worked with a Balance Gulp Froglet:
Benax (1,1,1)
Gulp Froglet (1,1,2)
Ghostshell Crab (2,2,1)
1. Pass - Benax is swapped out for Ghostshell Crab
2. Spirit Spikes
3. Bubble - this is important, you must get hit twice. Restart if you get hit 1 or 3 times
4. Swap in Benax
5. Void Portal brings in Gulp Froglet
6. Mudslide
7. Corpse Explosion - Restart if you don't get this one off. This is the difficult part of having the balance Gulp Froglet. You can only handle 3 hits total.
8. Bring back Benax
9.Bubble
10. Mudslide
11. Waterjet
12. Pass
13. Ghostshell comes back in and he still has his bubble
14. Grasp
15. Bubble
16. Grasp until the fight is won

All the credit goes to Hazelnuttygames:)

Bring some bandages. It took me about 20 tries to get the RNG just right.

Great strat. FYI, the chance of Round 3 (must get hit twice) is the same roll chance of the original strat posted. However, in addition, this strat has another RNG checkpoint (Round 7) which the original strat does not have. Nonetheless, great strat.

I didn't have a Ghost Shark, so I replaced it with Spawn of G'nathus (1,1,1). Use Dive like a Ghost Shark would and then Thunderbolt. :)
