How to beat Addius the Tormentor in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

The only torment is earning all the pet battle achievements.

Addius the Tormentor is just one of the people you’ll need to defeat while working your way through Revendreth pet battles in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. We’ve put together a strategy to take down Addius, who looks like he has a bright future in Victorian fashion shows.

Addius relies on a single pet for this fight: a Wretch, and it will likely take all three of your team members to bring it down. To ensure your survival, go with a team of Mechanical Pandaren Dargonling, Zandalari Kneebiter, and whichever you prefer for a third pet.

Immediately start your fight by throwing out a Decoy, which should keep the Wretch occupied for a bit. Take this opportunity to change over to your Zandalari Kneebiter, and go to work with Black Claw, boosting your attack for a few turns. Follow this with Hunting Party, and then choose Bloodfang. This will be as long as your Zandalari Kneebiter will lasts, and when it falls, send your Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling back in.

Begin this round of the fight with Bombing Run to set up what should be the end of the fight. Choose Breath to deal some damage before the Wretch uses Mind Games. Go with Option 1 to sacrifice your health; you won’t be needing much of it, as the Bombing Run will arrive and likely take out the rest of the Wretch’s health. If it isn’t enough, your third pet can come in to clean up the mess and finish the fight for you.
