Nope. Shinchomper dies way too easily.

Maybe its not 100% for some reason (SL in general? 9.1 bug?) But after struggling with this fight for a while today in challenge mode, I tried this team as my options were dwindling. Worked the first time, and beautifully so. Thanks so much for putting it back up.

A little heads-up before you type something imprudent:
This strategy was deleted by the author at the start of SL since it was slightly nerfed and became a little bit less reliable. So please don't expect this strategy to be working every time and then complain here when it doesn't.

The reason I brought this strat back from the dead is because this actually was (to my knowledge) the very first strategy to ever beat Zuna. And I'm talking about the old school Zuna fight from the PTR that was really hardcore before she got nerfed 3 or 4 times. And since it technically still works somewhat reliably I found it to be a shame for this strategy to be deleted. (edited)

Works fine with P/S skimmer. This is my top strategy.

I didn't have the Zandalari, but was able to make this work with a rabbit. Just go:
Dodge
Stampede
Flurry
Flurry

If you don't have Gahz'rooki, a Water Waveling (1,1,1) also works well. Just use Water jet instead of Swallow you whole, and Geyser and then Frost nova on tremors before it dies.

I agree with the comments that say RNG dependent. The whole dungeon is RNG dependent seemingly no matter how strong the team is. However my problem was confusion. First time I failed, second time when geyser stunned and fozling swapped in, I used Water Jet per the instructions to kill Fozling. Don't get confused by the lack of "pet 1 will swap in pet 2" in the instructions and just do what it says. My Zandalari Kneebiter survived with plenty of health remaining after one Black Claw and Hunting Party in the end after I followed the instructions that say to kill Fozling with Water Jet if he is not dead when the first Stampede is finished. Good luck!

Used Pandaren Water Spirit (1,2,2), Zand Kneebitter (2,1,2) and Anklerender (2,2,2)...

That's great and all, bit where and when did you use those abilities? Where and when were any pets swapped out? Just saying what pets worked for you doesn't really help anyone.

Well you are right... i kinda forgot to tell the steps, even tho i did on other enemies; now that i got the ones needed for this strat, i didn't use PWS's team any longer! I'll try to use it again and put it here step by step... really sorry for the lack of information here!

This was amazing, did it post-nerf with an S/S skimmer and it worked just fine. Didn't even break a sweat, thanks for the great strat.

Worked great with a P/S Elusive, but that was true even before the nerf. (edited)

Not having a Gahz'rooki, I subbed in Tideskipper - Swallow You Whole becomes Grasp and Bite becomes Body Slam, but it works.

ouch this aint good. Might take this down. If one is not using script and wishes to continue to use team take a note of strategy. Marking RNG. (edited)

Hm. This one worked fine for me yesterday, with a H/P. Very smooth. I didn't log the battle, though, so can't examine the log to see where it might be vulnerable. I'll do that next week. ISTR I used Bite instead of Swallow in some place it made sense? just a personal idiosyncracy - but otherwise it went like it was on rails.

People who say it failed: WHERE did it fail? What went wrong? What died early, or what happened that you didn't xpect? Were you using the script or pressing the buttons manually? (edited)

Don't take it down Setione, your strat does say breed and people need to learn that breeds other than suggested may not work. With the breeds as stated by you this strat is perfect and the only one that worked. I might also add it's nice to have an easy fight that isn't long winded and open to failure like all the others.

Extra to my original comment, I have tried this 4 times now this being my 4th week and still has not gone wrong. Second week I accidentally had feed instead of aura on shinchomper and scratch instead of water jet on skimmer, three times I have now won the fight just using one claw at the end instead of 3.

I should have said apologies for not. I am using an s/s skimmer, p/s Gahz'rooki and a p/b shinchomper (edited)

I agree with Askania. We have a couple of reports of failures, with NO DETAIL of how the failure occurred. I've been watching comments for a few months, and have developed a healthy skepticism (and I could use stronger words there!) for non-specific reports of failure.

Hunting party only give 1 round double damage so 2nd claw (without double damage) is not enough bring down Tremors.

I'm sorry, Setione, I did mean to log this one this week, but when I was actually in there, I mentally categorised it as "alreaady tried - this one is perfect" and didn't.

FWIW, I believe this one is fine.

OK, I did it twice more this week. Logged, and looked down the numbers. I won't say it couldn't possibly go wrong if you got REALLY unlucky on crits, but that's true of almost all strats. I will say that there is no way for it to fail unless you get REALLY REALLY unlucky!

after the dungeon nerf this strategy is a viable pick.
H/B works just as reliable as H/P for the skimmer. i can imagine the same is true for H/S
