  • 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

I wouldn't spam Tail Sweep until the book dies. Usually, you'll have it below 114HP after 3 attacks so it gets killed by Arcane Storm split damage.
This way vs. Helpful Spirit you can start with Mana Surge directly which usually leads to 1 less round of enemy AoE on your level pet.
If you use Tail Sweep in the Spirits extra turn, you get the dragonkin passive and then hit hard with a second Storm when the Moth comes in. You won't need Howl this way and if Arcane Storm crits and kills the moth directly it's even better since our Nexus Whelpling will die to CoD and the XP will go to our Level Pet anyways.

(With this change we could even think about replacing Chrominus with an Explode pet and forget about the level pet swap)

Script for the suggested change in the strategy:

change(#2) [ self(#3).active ]
use(Arcane Storm:589) [ enemy(#1).hp<114 &!enemy.aura(Undead:242).exists ]
ability(Mana Surge:489) [ weather(Arcane Winds:590) ]
use(Tail Sweep:122) [ !enemy(#3).active ]
ability(Surge of Power:593)
change(#3)

This only works with a P/S Nexus Whelpling or Stormborne Whelpling, as they are the same speed as Breezy Book and do less damage with Tail Sweep. If you have a P/P or P/B Nexus Whelpling then you'll always kill Breezy Book with three hits of Tail Sweep. Even with a P/S, you can still kill the book with three hits if you crit. (edited)

Idea: Use Arcane Storm when you have the Dragonkin Racial (and add a conditional so your Whelpling doesn't use Mana Surge on enemy pet(#1)). This would solve both the breed restriction and the possibility of crits leading to killing the book on turn 3.

use(Arcane Storm:589) [self.aura(Dragonkin:245).exists &!enemy.aura(Undead:242).exists]
use(Mana Surge:489) [!enemy(Breezy Book:1897).active]
use(Arcane Storm:589) [enemy(Delicate Moth:1899).active]
use(Tail Sweep:122)
use(Explode:282)
change(#2)

Testing this strat and it works with any breed of Nexus Whelpling. I was timing it at 1:13-1:19. A P/P Nexus Whelpling is so close to killing off Delicate Moth with Arcane Storm. It has 20 hp left for the explode, so if the Arcane Storm crits it will be faster.

Edit: I posted this version of the strategy here, with TD script.

Yeah was using a P/S breed and didn't realize this strat doesn't have the breed restriction, so thanks for pointing it out and going deeper into it.

I tried some of the other fixes for nexus whelp living too long and couldn't get them to work so I came up with this one:

if [enemy(#1).active]
ability(122)
endif
if [ enemy(#2).active ]
ability(589) [enemy.round=1]
ability(489) [enemy.round=2]
ability(589)
change(#3) [self(#1).dead & !self(#3).played]
endif
if [enemy(#3).active]
change(#3) [self(#1).active]
change(#2) [self(#3).active]
ability(#2) [enemy.hp > 1100]
ability(#3)

It wouldn't let me edit the original script and I came across a case in my testing (60 battles) where sometimes when the whelpling lives too long the moth may get a lucky crit on Chrominius. Below is a corrected version that uses the whelpling's last move to add damage to the moth right before it dies to pet 2's debuff. What this does it make it less likely that Chrominius will need to howl before surging, so even if there's a crit your Chrominius will survive. (Note: This was only tested with P/P Nexus Whelplings)

if [enemy(#1).active]
ability(122)
endif
if [ enemy(#2).active ]
ability(589) [enemy.round=1]
ability(489) [enemy.round=2]
ability(589)
change(#3) [self(#1).dead & !self(#3).played]

if [enemy(#3).active]
ability(#1) [self(#1).active & enemy.hp > 1100]
change(#3) [self(#1).active]
change(#2) [self(#3).active]

Fixed for safe switching during the ~8% of the time you live into the 3rd pet. Safe to around pet level 10.

Excellent strategy. It is even more efficient to sub Chrominus with Darkmoon Zeppelin 2-2-1 , that way you can finish off Delicate Moth with Thunderbolt > Explode .

Just want to add that it doesn't really require a 15+ pet-- Merayl's first two pets cleave with Arcane Explosion that will do around 600 magic damage assuming no crits.

If you can tolerate risking the low chance of multiple criticals, you can do this with pets as low as level 11 or so (>700 HP) for all families other than mechanical (>470 HP) and flying (>1050 HP).

This is extremely relevant knowledge. Would be great if a note up top were to be added to the strat, so that users don't have to scroll through comments to find it. Thanks, mods!

It seems that the script doesn't account for the chance that the Nexus Whelp can survive fighting Helpful Spirit. I'm going to try some edits on the script if I can replicate that happening again.

It broke on me when I got a crit on the second tick of Mana Surge and killed the Helpful Spirit a round early. I haven't been able to replicate it yet across a few repeats on my alts to test anything. It may just be one of those you have to watch for and know what to do if it breaks.

Modified code that seems to fix the issue of the script stalling if the Helpful Spirit dies with 2 turns remaining on the Curse of Doom. It's tested in that it doesn't break the current script from working, but I'm not sure if it actually solved the problem as I haven't been able to replicate it yet after 10 fights.

Had to use Howl first before using Surge of Power to make sure my H/H Chrominios (it's all I have) killed the Moth and not leave him with with enough HP to win the battle.

The moth should've been hit by two arcane storms before coming out, knocking it low enough for the surge of power (chrominius only comes in 1 breed) to take it out.
