The Celestial Tournament

The Timeless Isle is home to a special tournament created to test the leadership of its participants. Those who prove their worth with 15 maximum level pets are granted an opportunity to befriend an embodiment of virtue – the progeny of the Celestials themselves.

Celestial Tournament feature

Each time you win The Celestial Tournament (a weekly solo scenario), Master Li will honour you with a single ceremonial coin. Once you have enough coins, you’ll be able to purchase the Celestial pets for 3 Celestial Coins each. Just head to the Celestial Court (34, 59) to begin.

Once you have defeated all three champions, you’ll be eligible for the final stage. Note that you won’t be able to leave, heal or bandage your pets during the scenario otherwise you’ll forfeit any progress and have to start again.

Final Stage – Defeat all four Celestials in combat
All the Celestial pets share the Elite buff which reduces all damage taken by 50% and cannot be dealt more than 35% of their health in one attack.
Chi-Chi battle Chi-Chi, Hatchling of Chi-Ji (Flying)
Abilities: Fire Quills, Ethereal, Tranquility
Zao battle Zao, Calfling of Niuzao (Beast)
Abilities: Trample, Niuzao’s Charge, Wish
Xu-Fu battle Xu-Fu, Cub of Xuen (Beast)
Abilities: Spirit Claws, Moonfire, Feed
Yula battle Yu’la, Broodling of Yu’lon (Dragonkin)
Abilities: Jade Breath, Emerald Presence, Lift-Off

The first time you complete the tournament, you’ll receive a quest which rewards 2 celestial coins. This is great news since it means you’ll be able to collect one of the pets that first week.

I look forward to completing this weekly scenario. No doubt I’ll need a good number of them to battle all the champions for Master of the Masters.

If you’d like to see what teams I use, check out my Celestial Knock Out post or head over to YouTube to watch the videos.

Best of luck to you.

  1. Waiting for the patch is hard! Can’t wait to try this!

  2. Wrathion’s pets…HEE!


  3. Hahahahaha akljdajk;lsdakj g;laj;lkjsadf I love the names of Wrathion’s pets!

    And who knew that grouchy, serious Taran Zhu was into pet battling? Maybe these are his own kids, still too young to properly join the Shado-Pan, and he’s trying to get them into shape so that one of them can lead the Shado-Pan after him, just as his own father was the leader of the Shado-Pan before him?

    All those wee celestials are so adorable! But it might be two expansions down the road before I get any of them, considering how low pet battling is on my WoW things-to-do list…

    • LOL, I got a real kick out of the names too. The first monk has feign death and the third heals so they are quite funny and annoying at the same time.

  4. Hurry up, 5.4! Zao, Calfling of Niuzao is adorable!
