Pet Spotlight: Anubisath Idol
Today’s Pet Spotlight is the Anubisath Idol. Get your hands on one of these guys, and unlock his awesome power.
He drops from the Twin Emperors in AQ’40. You may need help from a friend to kill them, or you may be able to solo them. Or you could buy him from the AH. In any case, once you obtain him, he is definitely worth leveling up to 25.
With his primary Humanoid attack, Crush, the Idol is good at slaying dragons, but his true potential lies in the combo of Sandstorm and Stoneskin, each of which reduces the damage he takes by 70. Combined, they reduce each incoming attack by 140 points. This means he can completely avoid all damage from low-damage multi-hitting attacks like Slicing Winds, Swarm, Flock, Mothballs, Cyclone, Flurry… The list goes on and on. Anubisath Idol is amazing against tamers like Obalis, Whispering Pandaren Spirit, Courageous Yon, and even Aki the Chosen. Plus, the Humanoid ability of healing nearly 70 HP every time he deals damage to the enemy, means he often ends fights at full health or close to it, making him a great choice for capturing pets in the wild as well.
