I switched Tree Rex to Charger. Both paths are good, and have advantages, but ultimately I think I prefer lumbering laser. Plus, the armor looks much cooler on it, almost elvish.

For no damage? I tended to fall back on high mobility, high damage spammers like FlashWing (Ultimate spinner path).

On S1 Lightning rod go Typhoon titan, he needs something to protect himself at close range, and the zapper field plus zapper satellites do an incredible job at that. For S2, I agree that Lord of the lightning is better, as the wow pow gives Lightning rod something to keep his enemy out of close range.

Hex- Most will tell you to take Bone Crafter, but I say take Shade Master.
Eruptor- Volcanor, big time.
He becomes the best fire character on that path.
Nelomet Emerald Sparx Gems: 3069
#1630 Posted: 02:31:41 03/08/2013
Lacking S2 Hex, I can only advise on her without having experienced her Wow Pow (I've got S1, and Lightcore, don't need a third!).

Bone Crafter actually makes her Skull rain spell worth a damn, but it still has a reasonable build up to it, while you can move, it's VERY slow, and in Nightmare liable to get you killed unless you've got a good distance.

Shade Master makes your orbs utterly brutal, a very spammable attack you can use on the move. Yer bone wall still serves as a distraction at worst.
While it will depends whether you want to be able to move about or not, I'm going to have to say Shade Master based on my own experience.

The best path for Warnado is Eye of the Storm right? I heard that The AI Elemental on Wind Master is bad because you buy like 5 upgrades for controlling the darn tornado and then they add an AI....That isnt even that good. Ive only gotten the 1st upgrade for Eye if the Storm though, but its powerful!

I actually recommend you take Wind Master.
Rickorio Gold Sparx Gems: 2463
#1633 Posted: 01:09:15 04/08/2013
DO NOT TAKE WIND MASTER!!! My brother owns our smilie, who used to be one Eye of the Storm, but reset him because he thought Wind Master LOOKED better. It SUCKS!! Though my bro hasn't figured that out yet.

This. And Hex becomes best Undead on Shade Master when Bone Crafter sucks big time.

Warnado - Both paths are about equal in my mind, but as I like fast characters, I like Eye of the Storm a little better. But the tornado is amazing on Wind Master. If you like really fast characters, take EotS, if you don't mind a little bit slower, take Wind Master.

did anyone ever try buying Spyro's Wow Pow before choosing a path, to see if the glitch still happens?
Hazard335 Yellow Sparx Gems: 1435
#1638 Posted: 04:26:59 18/08/2013
Here is my PVP path recommendations for all orange base Skylanders after testing out both Upgrade Paths on the 360.


Spyro - Blitz Spyro (even though Stun Charge gets taken away by the Wow Pow, the ability to hit opponents multiple times per Charge puts out more damage faster then the other path can)
Wrecking Ball - Ultimate Spinner (was always the better path, and the Wow Pow just makes it better)
Double Trouble - Channeler [same for Royal] (best Magic Skylander again, but the Wow Pow is useless)
Pop Fizz - Mad Scientist [same for LightCore and Punch] (spamming those Potions makes for a good offence and defense, while on the other path his Beast Form is just an average melee attacker with a timer)
Ninjini - Swords of Might [same for Scarlet] (the upgrades for the Wishblades are far more useful then the slow moving Bottle that doesn't even hold for long, and the delay for going into the Bottle is awful)

Drobot - Master Blaster [same for LightCore] (the Wow Pow's small loss in damage output is worth it for the upgraded Mega Blasters)
Trigger Happy - Golden Money Bags (barely useful Wow Pow on a barely useful Skylander)
Drill Sergeant - Megadozer (best Tech Skylander, awesome Wow Pow)
Sprocket - Operator (triple deploying Bouncing Betty Mines is what she does best, while the Tank is just to slow to do anything but take major damage)
Bouncer - I-Beam Supreme [same for Legendary] (out of all his attacks on either path, Shoulder Rockets are his least useful, when the I-Beam and Fingerguns will be used regularly)

Bash - Granite Dragon (was the better path by a smidge, but the Wow Pow just makes it better by a mile)
Terrafin - Sandhog (best Earth Skylander again, with a great Wow Pow that benefits his invaluable underground immunity)
Prism Break - Crystaleer [same for LightCore] (combine the Wow Pow with the Triple Crystal Shard drops for great damage output that covers a wide area)
Flashwing - Super Shards [same for Jade] (although barely, the defense she looses is worth it for the damage output she gains with her Shooting Shards, and Healing Crystals are somewhat decent)
Crusher - Rubble Master [same for Granite] (the Crusher Hammer is just to slow of an attack, unlike the fully upgraded Rockslide which makes him much more versatile)

Whirlwind - Tempest Dragon [same for Polar] (Tempest Clouds were always her main attack and the Wow Pow makes them even better)
Sonic Boom - Medea Griffin (damage output really adds up with all those Babies)
Lightning Rod - Typhoon Titan (this path use to have a major problem with range attacks, making it a bad choice, but now the Wow Pow fixes that very nicely)
Jet-Vac - Vac-Packeteer [same for LightCore and Legendary] (Super Suction Air Blaster and Piercing Winds are absolutely useless without multiple enemies)
Swarm - Barberous Avenger (best Air Skylander, shooting Barb Blades and Butt Stingers while in Flight is what he does best)

Ignitor - Soul of the Flame [same for Legendary] (best Fire Skylander again due to the awesome Flame Form, making the Wow Pow a nice perk)
Flameslinger - Pyromancer (the Wow Pow makes him the best keep-away Skylander, and really helps making the Supernova)
Eruptor - Volcanor [same for LightCore] (the Wow Pow finally gives this path a nice damaging medium-range attack)
Hot Dog - Burning Bow-Wow [same for Molten] (all the upgrades on this path are great, when the upgraded Wall of Fire just is not as helpful)
Hot Head - The Burninator (FlameFire Bursts and Oil Blobs are his main attack on either path, also the Meteor takes too long to get charged)

Zap - Tesla Dragon (this path used to be a bad choice, but not any more since the Sea Slime Slide has been seriously downgraded, and the Wow Pow is built for this path)
Gill Grunt - Water Weaver (the Wow Pow is kind of useless)
Slam Bam - Blizzard Brawler [same for Legendary] (the Wow Pow gave this great path just what it needed to be awesome)
Chill - Ice Lancer [same for LightCore and Legendary LightCore] (Triple Ice Javelin is a nice attack to spam, and being able to do it while moving at full speed makes this path great)
Thumpback - Anchor's A-Yay (best Water Skylander, Thumpback Combos have amazing damage output with a wide range)

Stealth Elf - Pook Blade Saint [same for Legendary] (the Wow Pow helps out the other path allot, but not this one at all, but still this path is better)
Stump Smash - Nut Crafter (best Life Skylander, that Wow Pow has insane damage output)
Zook - Floral Defender (awesome path, useless Wow Pow)
Shroomboom - Paramushroom Promotion [same for LightCore] (Paratroopers damage output adds up fast, when on the other path its hard to have any decent damage output at all)
Tree Rex - Lumbering Laserer [same for Gnarly] (spamming the Photosynthesis Cannon can pull off great damage from a safe distance, when his Sequoia Stampede damage output is lower and puts him in harms way)

Cynder - Nether Welder (the Wow Pow doesn't do much for her, but at least the game made her Ghosts amazing)
Chop Chop - Undead Defender (best Undead Skylander, the Wow Pow does extra damage on this path, making him go from the worst Skylander to one of the best)
Hex - Bone Crafter [same for LightCore] (that Wow Pow is the most powerful attack in the game)
Fright Rider - Joust Jockey (all the upgrades on this path are awesome for being so versatile, when on the other path he is going to be out-damaged often)
Eye-Brawl - Eye for an Eye (this path's damage output adds up fast, and is safer to play, when Eye-Brawl Combos are just average for melee attacks)

I'm not sure if I should choose Nut Crafter or Smash N' Bash for smilie. I like the combos smilie gets for Smash N' Bash, but I think Nut Crafter goes better with the Wow Pow. What should I choose?
weebbby Emerald Sparx Gems: 4201
#1642 Posted: 17:21:05 02/09/2013
Nut Crafter. The combos are weaker than the primary combo, and the other upgrades are useless.
Nelomet Emerald Sparx Gems: 3069
#1643 Posted: 08:48:44 04/09/2013
My money's on Nutcrafter too, ties in very nicely with the Wow pow, and pretty much floods the field with a forest's worth of slowing acorns (even without the Wow pow!), as opposed to underwhelming combos and an exploding meganut.

What glitch?

Anyone else know that in SSA Spyro could use the Daybringer Flame and his Earth Pound at the same time, creating a bigger crash?

At least my bro's smilie could do it in SSA. We play the Xbox 360 version. (I own the 3DS versions too but anyways-)

it is a pretty bad glitch that makes Series 1 Spyro better then Series 2 Spyro.

@Sky Airglow You are correct. It is possible to use all flame attacks at the same time you are ground pounding in SSA. However, this only works in the PC, XBox 360 and PS3 ports.
