You might be asking yourself, "Why should I use this instead of my normal attacks? It says it does less damage than my other attacks on the tooltip, and has no cooldown."
Well first off, it applies the 100% increased damage debuff on them, so excluding the first round it actually does twice the damage the tooltip says.
Second of all, the damage buff lasts for 2 rounds after stampede, allowing you to do great damage with other abilities afterwards.
And last of all, it's also great with DoTs, allowing them to do twice as much damage thanks to the 100% increased damage buff.
Although you lose control for several turns, I think it's quite worth it! A great damage AND healing rotation for an
. With this setup, not only do I often out-damage my enemies, but sometimes even outheal their damage at the same time!
Weakest, most pointless battle pet ability ever.
Caution: I encountered an apparent bug where finishing the entire battle with Stampede granted no pet XP and no post-battle hp Recovery. In this situation, the 3rd round of Stampede killed that last opponent and ended the pet battle.
I verified this on Terky (lvl 23, 24) against a couple of different kinds of PvE opponents (Rat, Fire-Proof Roach) as the last opponent in the battle.
This may not be bugged for other pets; I haven't tested it there. Bug reported to Blizz 10/24/2015.
