Algalon the Observer

Quick Info:

Last updated 2020-10-11

Patch 7.1 brought with it a new version of Raiding with Leashes: Part IV - Wrath of the Lich King, but this time with a twist!
Once you collect (or get traded) all the pets for this achievement, instead of receiving a pet reward directly, you instead receive a Celestial Invitation, which asks you to seek out Algalon the Observer himself.
It turns out he secretly tamed some super cute celestial pets and now you need to defeat him, with your own pets!

Once you defeat him, you will then finally receive your reward, which is the celestial bunny Stardust.

That's a fun one!

Finally getting around to doing old stuff....
Zandalari Anklerender 222
Ikky 111
Son of Sethe 121

Comet - Black Claw, Primal Cry, Hunting Party
Cosmo - Savage Talon, Black Clock, Flock - sorry didn't track the change, but basically kept Sethe's health up to survive Apocalypse and it did!

I've tried more or less every strategy posted here plus what I found in the comments on wowhead. Not ONE of them has worked. I have all my pets dead on his 2nd pet or - if i'm very lucky - almost dead when his third pet enters the floor.

I stand corrected, tried this again today and it worked really nicely. I changed my Chitterspine to the S/S breed. Strangely that seemed to make the difference. <thumbs up>

It seems pretty critical that the first pet be S/S. I swapped in my Zandalari Footslasher 2/2/2 and was able to complete it as well. The rabbit was annoying swapping in son of sethe and squirrel but in the end, constellatius cast apocalypse which Son of Sethe could live through as undead.

Hajaj on Wowhead suggested:

Chitterspine Skitterling (S/S) (-/2/2)
Infected Squirrel (P/H) (2/2/1)
Son of Sethe (P/S) (1/2/1)

Which worked like a charm, post Shadowlands Prepatch. The strat posted by Deydrania here doesn't seem to work anymore, as even the fastest version of EPW is too slow to emerald dream before the rabbit does the switch, and I tried... many, many times. (edited)

Do you have to clear Ulduar to do Celestial Invitation?

Blergh! They're bad toys, veeeery bad!

If you ask whether the encounter is a part of the instance or not – it is not, during this quest he's located next to the raid's entrance.
If you ask whether you can get the invitation itself… an interesting question! I do not have any idea; hard to find a sample when people tend to have it cleared before, for pets or otherwise. The quest is account-wide, however and does not have a level requirement, so I guess one could *gasps* have never set a foot in Ulduar at all!

The answer is 'no'. You receive the invitation in the mail after completing the Raiding With Leashes IV achievement: https://www.wowhead.com/achievement=11320/raiding-with-leashes-iv-wrath-of-the-lick-king
You can buy all these pets from the AH and learn them to complete the ach.

Deydrania wrote on 2017-05-15 22:22:00

This is almost devoid of RNG. I tried it over and over and over again. I worked out all of the bugs and made it almost perfect.

1. Zandalari Ankerender 2/2/2
2. Emerald Proto-Whelp 1/1/2
3. Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling 1/1/2

Ankerender: Primal Cry / Black Claw / Hunting Party (Anklerender dies, but Opponent is almost dead)

Emerald Proto-Whelp: Breath immediately and finish off Opponent. Comet dies.
Bunny comes out
Immediately cast Emerald Dream. Now you're in a rotation- DO NOT DEVIATE
Once Dream ends: Breath / Ancient Blessing / Breath / Dream
Breath / Ancient Blessing / Breath / Dream
Until Bunny dies.

NOTE: While Proto-Whelp is asleep in Dream, Bunny cannot force a pet swap. So stick to the rotation and you'll keep the proto-whelp active.

Now final pet comes out: Continue Rotation until Proto-Whelp dies.
Pandaren Dragonling comes out: By now, you should have anywhere from 2-5 rounds left until the meteor hits and ends the battle. your job is to stay alive

Cast Decoy. Do whatever you want and wait out the end.
Victory.

Thanks for this strat - I was missing at least one pet of all the ones in the main pet battle article and was wondering what to do when I saw this!

On the first try Bunny kept critting my Proto-Whelp and I lost, but on the second try Proto-Whelp stayed alive till meteor hit so Dragonling didn't even have to come out!

Thank you for sharing an excellent, successful strategy. On my first attempt Comet died too soon and one more attack from my Anklerender threw the entire progression/rotation out of the window, but my second try worked exactly as you describe except my Emerald Proto Whelp survived until the meteor landed so I didn't need my Dragonling at all.

This strategy is purely RNG for the hopes while your barely holding on no crits hit to take you out. 10 plus pulls and counting corrently.

I tried 5 different strategies/pet combos for over an hour, trying to down Alganon's pets. This strategy list above worked for me first time. My Mech Dragonling didn't even enter battle. My Proto-whelp died just before the meteor hit.

One shot it with this excellent strategy. Ended up not needing MPD because my EPW was never in any danger of dying prior to Meteor going off. Well done!

Not foolproof with P/P Zandalar Anklebiter, P/S Emerald Proto-Whelp, and (S/S) Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling, but it does work with a little RNG. TY. This is the only one I was able to get to work after only three times.

a P/P Anklerender has a chance to kill Comet first, and die to Cosmos, causing Emerald Whelp to be swapped out for the Dragonling. If Anklerender kills Comet send in the Mechanical Dragonling to be swapped out with Emerald Proto Whelp

I found for Cosmos that a fast Flayer Youngling 121 works pretty well.
Kick, blitz, shield, blitz, Kick...
Has to be fast to stun Cosmos. Have fun. I've had the Flayer at 50% left and also not make it due to crits. A good kick to the head slows most things down.

Love your website! Just curious--have you noticed the achievement is actually Raiding with Leashes IV: Wrath of the "Lick" King? I think most people missed it. It made me laugh so I thought I'd mention it.

Algalon is OUTSIDE of Ulduar at 41.5, 24.2. That is on the steps leading up to the raid. Yes I cleared all the way to him in the raid only to find he was not inside :(. Hope this helps you get it done faster!

I didn't have many of the pets here, but here's what I did:

Pets were: Zandalari Anklebiter (2/2/2), Son of Sethe (2/1/2), Lil' Bling (2/1/2, though 2/2/2 might be better)

Zandalari Anklebiter (I didn't have S/S, so I went with what I had): Primal Howl -> Black Claw -> Hunting Party
Son of Sethe: I leveled this pet just for this fight): Drain Blood (to finish first pet) -> Screech (to slow the second pet)
Lil' Bling will get pulled into battle: Make it rain -> Inflation -> Make it rain (just try to do damage until Son of Sethe gets pulled back in, Lil' Bling had around 70 health after the mechanical revive when Son of Sethe was pulled back in, it is vital to winning that Lil' Bling doesn't die)
Son of Sethe: Drain blood (I think this killed the second pet) -> Plagued blood (x2 if the second pet isn't dead at this point and the first comes out)

Then for the final pet, I followed others' advice that use its Apocalypse to win. The priority becomes Drain Blood (especially with moonlight still up) -> Screech if the speed decrease isn't already up (otherwise lowest it's the lowest priority) -> Plagued Blood

Thanks, and I hope this helps if like me you don't have many holiday pets nor rare ones.

Just commenting here to say that this worked for me!! I tried so many strats from WoWhead but none of them worked for me- with the exception of the macabre marionette... I didn't have that one. Thank you SO much! It took me many tries through crit RNG but it finally worked. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

it may work(no luck yet with it), but unless things have changed since the post: There is no such spell as "screech' and although he said to use "Son of Sethe (2/1/2), "..he then called to use Drain Blood which is in the 3rd slot but no. 1 spot; and that can cause a catastrophe. I'm worried this means that things have just changed since the strat was originally posted.

I didn't have the infested cub leveled so i was having trouble since the emerald whelp kept dying anyways even if i switched it, so i found a great combo that saved my ass. I simply needed something that would hang in there till apoc. I did zandalari anklerender and used his primal cry first, then black claw and stampede. Its ok if he dies. Take emerald proto use breath then right away use dream for when the bunny comes. Do the healingtechnique as previous posts. It's ok if he dies. Then marionette for the third per. Use syphon and maracas, alternate. Just hang in there. You will sirvive for a bit enough to win the encounter.
