Can confirm that it's not fool proof. I won but my leveling pet died. I'm not saying it can't work, just that it doesn't ALWAYS work.

Most strats don't ALWAYS work.

A really bad string of RNG - you miss several times in a Sandstorm or Darkness, or the tamer gets a sting of crits - can derail most strats. This is something I find many people, who are not exposed to many strats, or who don't ever analyse the failure points arithmetically, don't need to realise ... and then it happens to them, and they tend to think that it is specific to the failure they had. I've identified several times a strat can fail in the case of taking two unlucky crits in a row, at just the right place - a 1 in 400 chance.

And then of course there are the people who use the wrong moves, and don't realise it.

This is the strat I've used myself since WoD. It hasn't ever failed for me, and I haven't analysed it, but I can believe that the Haunt nerf might cause the Valk to die too soon, if using a B/B Valk, combined with a couple of unlucky crits. Maybe, Or maybe you skipped a step.

You see, if you bring in the level pet only on the round specified, it literally cannot die, since the stun it takes on that round does no damage.

Some very minor tweaks makes this fight go a little faster at ~11 rounds:
Change Unborn Val'kyr to [2 * 1] and Fossilized Hatching to [1 2 2]
TDScript:

change(#3) [enemy.aura(213).exists & !self(#3).played]
use(652) [round=1]
use(649)
use(214) [!enemy.aura(213).exists]
use(648)
use(422)
change(#2)
change(#1)

Doing this fight multiple times a week for a few years now and have never had a failure. I only have an H/H Val'kyr though so I don't know if it still works with other breeds. I also like getting to use Death and Decay which isn't an ability that gets used much (and makes me miss that old spell graphic on my DK ;( )

Seems to work for the most part with a B/B Unborn. Only real issue was had to manually control manually control my Fossilized Hatchling for the last two turns for some odd reason.

For the people who are saying this doesn't work -- I'm wondering if they're accidentally using Unholy Ascension instead of Haunt? The two abilities look pretty similar (valkyrie dies, etc) but Haunt continues to do damage on Murkalot when he gets moved to the back row, making him easy to finish off with Bonestorm. And moreover, when the Haunt effect expires the valkyrie comes back to life, so she can finish off the last murloc, whereas with Unholy Ascension she stays dead. I just made that mistake earlier (didn't realize I had the wrong ability up) and it did indeed fail hard.

2 Ghastly Kids, 2/2/1 and a carry pet (any level) will work. Start with Ethereal on Murkalot and disease bit until health is below 840 to kill with Ghastly Bite. Deathy Always clobbers 2nd turn and on cooldown so Ghostly Bite telegraphically when the cooldown on Clobber is 1 or use Ethereal when Clobber is up (cooldown 0 ready for use). Also when you proc undead passive it's free Ghostly Bite cause there is no next turn to be stunned at. (edited)

That'[s odd, because I did a round of Draenor a couple of weeks ago, and it still worled for me.

Please tell us EXACTLY where the strat deviated from expectations. The addon Pet Battle Log Keeper would be ideal, or a screenshot of the Pet Battle log, but even a pointer to the place where it went wrong would allow somebody to check it out.

Also, what breed of Valk were you using? I'm pretty sure I have a H/H slotted for this one.

I was out that way today, so I thought I'd check, using a B/B Valk. Nope, still worked perfectly.

The B/B Valk does get brought to zero by the Heroic Leap in the last round, (which a H/H won't, barring crits) but at that point, Gladiator Murkimus has only 288 HP left. Shadow Slash does a minimum of (393*.75) damage in the Undead round, which is 294 or 295 depending on rounding, and plenty to finish the battle.

If you were using Shadow Shock instead of Shadow Slash and got unlucky with a low hit, it could fail. That's pretty low probability, but possible. So be sure you're using Shadow Slash.

If Gladiator Murkalot's original Falling Murloc had crit in Round 1, it would still not have killed the B/B Valk, so would not make any difference.

i have now lost this 5 times in a row with this strategy - i've tried a couple of different variations, including Berendain's suggestion of keeping "Ancient Blessing" until Gladiator Murkimus leaps into the air, but i always end up with the Unborn Valkyr with <500HP and Murkimus doing Heroic Leap on that round - meaning the Valkyr gets killed, resurrects for one round, but Murkimus has too many HP left for the Valkyr's one hit left to kill it, so you lose, cos by then all you've got left is you level pet...

Proconsul wrote on 06/29/2019

@ skarpethinn Agreed. I used to use a B/B UBV with Shadow Shock, and I never used Ancient Blessing with the Fossilised Hatchling - I simply used Bonebite. I saw a 95% + win with that combo. Using the strat here felt considerably weaker: I survived simply because I was levelling a Lvl 16 moth, which I relied on to finish off Murkimus. I realise that a single bad outcome is unreliable, so I shall try this recommended strat a few more times before commenting further.

wrote on 07/15/2019

Where this strat fails for me sometimes is when my Fossilized Hatchling has taken any crits anywhere. When Murkimus does his opening Counterstrike, if my Hatchling dies then, that means the UBV (B/B) is taking the Heroic Leap damage, and if Murkimus isn't low enough to be one shot with Shadow Slash, then I have my leveling pet (usually level 1 lately) to try to survive Murkimus. That doesn't usually end well. XD

However, I've always been able to repeat the battle and try again, and have it work as expected. I can look to upload a log of some sort, if that'd help!
