Please take Feral Vermling off the list of acceptable variants for the Hopling. The Feral Vermling (289) is not fast enough to beat the Corrupted Blood of Argus (291) and this does not work for the rest of the strat. Hopling has 325 speed and the strat will only with that.
Just beat it today with P/S Fiendish Imp 1/1/*, S/S Flayer Youngling 1/2/1, and B/B Ore Eater 1/1/1. The breeds can probably be changed as long as they're faster than the Blood, but these are the ones I used. Start with Imp and use Immolation, get swapped to Ore. Use Shell, Body Slam, then Acid and you'll be swapped to Flayer. Deflection, Kick, and Blitz and you're swapped back to Imp. Burn x3 and you die to his Gate, bring in Flayer. Deflection, Kick, Blitz, Ore gets brought in. Body Slam and die to Slime, bringing Flayer back. Deflect, Kick, then Blitz and he will die.
I've tried every strategy for this which is posted here (whether main article or comments) where I have the pets named. None of them work. No pet seems able to get off the first shot vs Blood, which, in turn, is one- and two-shotting everything. Anyone have an updated strategy, which does not require any TCG pet and/or ones locked behind a Darkmoon achievement I can't seem to get? This site, by the way, is only as useful as it is current and accurate.
Didn't have Terky and Harbinger didn't seem to do enough damage so I went with
Kun-Lai Runt (p/p 2-2-2) and
Started with Hopling just like in this strat plus Crush on second pass before he dies
Frost Shock > Deep Freeze > Takedown for Runt
Lovestruck and Shot Through The Heart with Peddlefeet - if he's not dead use Bow Shot to finish him off.
First try, Harbinger died before getting off Conflagrate & Hopling couldn't hold out quite long enough to finish the battle. Second try went exactly as described in the instructions. Thanks for the strategy & the great website.
