I worked on writing this piece of paper in order to dissect and standardize as much as I could the neverending routine of grabbing snoutlings while playing AngryBirdsEpic (ABE).
As well as you played the game like me (without being warned from the beginning on how properly balance the slow speed of your mastery goals compared with the quicker growth of birds and pig level), you’ll be facing Mouth Pool almost when it will be too hard to be used to maximize snoutlings outcome as a “simple standard routine”. Actually, I entered he Pool for the first time when opponents and me were @ L52, Spirits’ Evoker could not be outplayed and killed 10 times with standard AI engine and with too few achievents autoplaying it with my two stronger birds (Paladin and Rainbird, actually).
I gathered here all the data needed to accomplish the goal of playing the pool without autoplaying it with the following team and for more than 2000 snoutlings (if you have enough patience like me) :)
Rainbird elite L70-M45 with L71-E4 Lightning Set heals for 827
Skulkers elite L70-M33 with L71-E4 BEEP! Robot Set hit for 496 (using secondary ability)
McCool L68-M39 hit for 1419
R2 or R3 undead recharge time
T = 4 enemies 10 snoutlings
D = 5 enemies 12 snoutlings
F = 6 enemies 14 snoutlings
S = 7 enemies 16 snoutlings
E = 8 enemies 18 snoutlings
W = 9 enemies 20 snoutlings
L = 10 enemies 22 snoutlings
X = 11 enemies 24 snoutlings
No ChiliRage use recommended aside from considering as “a last chance” on letting my birds to survive before being overwhelmed.
Skulkers always hit with his secondary ability while McCool could both attack or use his seconday ability when safe (especially not to kill all the pigs too quickly).
Rainbird usually heals and purify birds. Minor curses that only underpower birds attacks are usually not purified because they let pigs survive longer for free.
Example of a tipical “game resolution”
Wave 1 – Enemies L52 – Spirits’ Evoker [S – 47175 – R3]
`RageChili used(each/wave): 001
Count of (hits/wave): 223
Count of (kills/wave): 000
Count of (snoutlings/wave): 44T
Total 18 – Average 6 – Count of rounds 3`
With the previously described team, you can’t kill the monster during the first wave because you don’t have enough fire power or time before he cowardly left the battlefield.
As well as you heal and purify birds with raindbird while attacking with the other ones, it wil be quite easy to smash him when faced on the last stage, instead.
Wave 2 – Enemies L52 – Phantom [P – 1415 – R2]
RageChili used(each/wave): 0000
Count of (hits/wave): 2233
Count of (kills/wave): P00P
Count of (snoutlings/wave): 4646
Total 20 – Average 5 – Count of rounds 4
This wave has a capped maximized ROI of only 20 snoutlings (no ChiliRage option applied):
T1: Hit with Skulkers for (4), kill phantom with McCool(2) during this first game round;
T2: Hit the left alone evoker with both McCool and Skulkers for (4);
T3: Phantom is back again, now. Hit with Skulkers for (4), hit evoker with McCool (2);
T4: Hit phantom with Skulkers first and then McCool (4).
Wave 3 – Enemies L52
Frankenpork [F – 10378 – R3]
RageChili used(each/wave): 00000000
Count of (hits/wave): 12222222
Count of (kills/wave): F0000000
Count of (snoutlings/wave): 24444666
Total 36 – Average 4.5 – Count of rounds 8
I always hit the big boss with McCool before he left because it leaves Frankepork alive for a longer time giving me more snoutlings.
Wave 4 – Enemies L52
Poltergeist [P – 3145 – R3] + Zombie [Z – 2988 – R3] + Phantom [H – 1415 – R2]

Total 280 – Average 6.1 – Count of rounds 49
If I can choose, I hit Phantom first and then the other pigs, because of its shorter recovery time. During the first three rounds, I force McCool to hit only the big boss in order to let the other survive for a longer time. For the same reasons I did not purify Skulkers nor McCool from the Poltergeist curses (less damages each hit, pigs survive for a longer time).
Wave 5 – Enemies L52
Zombie Knight [K – 6762 – R3] + Banshee [B – 5504 – R2] + Zombie [z – 5032 – R3] (+ any summoned Phantom [H – 1415 – R2])

During this wave, key role is played by the Banshee. I let her summon as many as I can manage minor Phantom pigs on battlefield, being ready with Rainbird to wipe the board before being overwhelmed. I think that at this combination of level/mastery the total number of enemies should not go over ten. If you are able to stabilize and balance heals with hits you can proceed to alternatively wipe/rise enemies for a very long time before getting bored like me in the example.
Wave 6 – L52
Mummy [2516 R3] + Mummy [2516 R3] + Mummy [2516 R3] + Will-o-the-Wisp [1887 R2]
Mummies recover time is slower than will-o-the-wips’ one. If I can choose, I kill the latter first

it can be iterated forever if zombie vodoo targets are different and the split damages on two birds because two turns heals can cover more than zombie single hit.

Aside from frankepork’s mastery, nothing interesting there.
