Hi! I’m Hazel, and this is your guide to the Watcher pet battle on Argus. I’m going to start with a super quick strategy for everyday world questing, then go through strategies for every single pet family for progress on the Family Fighter achievement. Watcher lives here in the Antoran Wastes. For a self-proclaimed Watcher, he’s surprisingly violent. First is the fast strategy for when you just wanna get your World Quest done, which also doubles as the Beast strat. In your first slot put any beast, and in your third slot put any beast. In the middle, grab your zandalari anklerender or kneebiter with Hunting Party, Black Claw, and Leap. Start the fight with a brave sacrificial beast who takes one for the team. Then, bring in your Zandalari raptor and use Black Claw, then Hunting Party, then leap. If you were going to invest in just one pet to help you with the Argus bosses, it’s gotta be this guy. Next we’ll do Aquatic. In my first slot is a Young Mutant Warturtle with Jab, Smoke Bomb and Tornado Punch. Second is Gahz’rooki with Bite and Geyser. Third, I’ve got Benax with Bubble, Mudslide and Water Jet.
Start with the Warturtle and use Smoke Bomb, then Tornado Punch, then swap to Gahz’rooki. Use Geyser, then Bite once and get roasted. Bring back the Warturtle and use Tornado Punch, then Jab, then Smoke Bomb, then swap in Benax. Use Bubble, then Mudslide, then spam Water Jet until your Benax dies to the Antaen Cannon. Bring back the Warturtle and Tornado Punch your way to victory. Next, we’ve got Critter. First slot is a Sneaky Marmot with Jab, Blinding Poison and Smoke Bomb. Second is any critter with Stampede, bonus points if it has a lot of health, attack or both.
In the third slot I’ve got my Darkmoon Hatchling with Trample and Predatory Strike. Lovebird with Predatory Strike would also probably do fine. OK, so if he crits your marmot you gotta start over but this is so beautiful that it’s worth it. Start with Smoke Bomb, then Jab twice, then Blinding Powder, then Jab twice more. Smoke Bomb, then Blinding Powder, then Jab three more times. This marmot is an absolute legend. After he finally dies, bring in your stampede pet and use Stampede. It’s fine if you only get one round in. On the Darkmoon Hatchling, if he has less than 450 health, use Predatory Strike. If he’s above that mark, Trample once and then predatory strike. Next up is Elemental. In my first slot I’m using the Jadefire Spirit with Jade Breath and Fade, while in my second and third slots I’m using a Fel Flame and a Searing Scorchling with Flame Breath, Scorched Earth, and Conflagrate.
Start with the Jadefire Spirit and use Fade. That will swap for a random one of your pets but they’re using the same moves so it doesn’t matter which. On your flame dude, use Scorched Earth, then Flame Breath, then Conflagrate, then Flame Breath. That’s about the Limit of my fel flame so I’ll bring in my scorchling and do the same thing, or as much of it as we need to win. Next we’ll do Humanoid. In your first slot use a pet with Deflection such as the Anubisath Idol or the Ravager Hatchling. In second we’ve got Squirky with Bubble and Stampede. Third is a Winters Helper with Ice Lance, Call Winter and Gift of Winter’s Veil. Start with the Deflection pet, use Deflection and then swap to Squirky. Use Bubble, and then stampede as much as squirkily possible. After Squirky dies bring in your Winter helper and chuck a Gift of Winter’s Veil at him. To finish it off we’ll use Call Winter, then spam Ice lance.
Next up is Mechanical. I’ve got my Pocket Cannon with Cannon Shot and Explode, while second is the Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling with Breath and Decoy. The third pet can be any mech you like. Start with the Pocket Cannon and use Cannon Shot twice, then Explode. It’s a shame the cannon doesn’t have some kind of Dragon projectile. Bring in the Mech Panda Dragonling and use Decoy, then spam Breath. That is the whole fight. This eye hits hard but thankfully he doesn’t have a ton of health. That brings us to Dragonkin. In your first slot use any dragon, it doesn’t even need to be leveled. Second I’ve got my Twilight Clutch Sister with Tail Sweep, Phase Shift and Twilight Meteorite. Third, I’m using my Spawn of Onyxia with Tail Sweep and Lift-off. Start with your rando dragon and watch it get tragically sacrificed to appease the cannon. Bring in the Twilight Clutch Sister and use Twilight Meteorite, then Tail Sweep, then Phase Shift. Tail Sweep once more before you get fried. Bring in the baby Onyxia and use Tail Sweep once, then Lift-off, then Tail Sweep.
Next is flying. In my first slot is my Sentinel’s Companion with Dark Talon, Soulrush and Ethereal. Second is Firewing with Scorched Earth and Murder, and third is my Nether Ray Fry with Tail Sweep. Start with the Sentinel’s Companion, use Ethereal, then swap to Firewing. Use Scorched Earth, then Murder. Firewing dies so bring in the Nether Ray and get the world’s juiciest Tail Sweep. You really just get the one so he dies and we bring back the Sentinel’s Companion. Use Soulrush. If that does not kill him then go Ethereal, then Dark Talon but in this case we’re done. Next is Magic.
For simplicity’s sake I’m busting out three Mana Wyrms, all equipped with Feedback and Deflection. Start with Deflection, then spam Feedback, and use Deflection when it comes up. Keep an eye on his Antaen Cannon cooldown though, and make sure that on your second wyrm you hold the deflection for that. If you’ve ever fought a gym in Pokemon Go, this feels pretty much exactly like that but with fewer people judging you for loitering. Last is Undead. First slot is our Unborn Val’kyr with Curse of Doom and Unholy Ascenscion, second is a Scourged Whelp with Tail Sweep and nothing else matters. Start with the valk, use curse of doom, then unholy ascenscion. On your Scourged whelp, mash Tail Sweep until he gives up and dies. There’s really no messing this one up.
