The Celestial Tournament

Quick Info:

Last updated 2022-04-29

The Celestial Tournament is a special instance and by most seen as the pinnacle of pet battle challenges.
You can do it once a week and inside, you will face three pet battle masters, followed by the four Celestials to fight against. The three masters change every week and there's a total of three sets of them rotating through.

Doesn't sound that hard, but what makes it tricky is that once you're in, you cannot heal your pets anymore! That makes planning ahead very important.
Xu-Fu can scan this section for the most suitable strategies according to your preferences and show the required pets.
It is recommended to check the tables week by week since you won't have to face all 9 tamers in one run.
The tool will use every pet only once due to the restriction of no healing.

Active:
US: Week 1 with Taran Zhu, Wrathion and Chen Stormstout
EU: Week 2 with Shademaster Kiryn, Wise Mari and Blingtron 4000

Today I could do the Clestial Tournament two times and got 2 coins.
Didn't think about it, as I did my first tournament some years ago and only got Xu-Fu.
Wanted to do it a third time, but this was not possible.
Strange.
I don't know if this was an error, a feature or just luck.

Something seems to be wrong..
Yesterday I did the Clelestial Tournament again.
Then tried to do it a second time.
There WAS the quest, but after accepting, it was not in my quest log and I couldn't start.
The NPC had still the "!" above its head.

Needs more investigation.
Could the old gods be the source of this behaviour?
Or is it something from the maw that irritates the celestials?

Verrrrry strange!

I know a million people have said it but thank you SO much. It's taken me this long to finally start the tournament (embarrassing, I know) but thanks to this site I know it'll be a breeze! Already got my kitten. Just 9 weeks and the last three shall be mine. :D

Thank you for you work on this amazing tool :D
Is there any way to get the TD Scripts along with the rematch strings in a single "go" ?

Unfortunately no. Those are two separate addons that don't support "cross-import" (yet?)

Thank you for all the hard work for this guide (and all pet guides). I just did my first time through the tournament and all these battles worked! Proud new owner of Xu-fu!

I used this amazing tool for week 2 yesterday, but found a bug because the tactic used for shademaster kiryn is basically empty! https://www.wow-petguide.com/index.php?Strategy=10216. Another thing is that the yu'la tactic https://www.wow-petguide.com/index.php?Strategy=154 doesn't work in the shadowlands pre-patch, mr bigglesworth can't bring yu'la down by himself anymore.

Hey!
Thanks for the note :) The empty strategy should not have been published, I unpublished it so it doesn't interfere with the tool anymore. Not really a bug, more a... result of a user not following the strategy creation rules ^^'
If there is a particular fight in a section that you want the tool to use, give it a favourite (the green heart at the top) - it will then always be used no matter what.

I've also marked and unpublished the Yu'la strategy so we can test it properly internally. Thanks!

Lol, how i can exit when won to deliver quest?

Same as with a dungeon. You can right click either the dungeon eye on your mini-map, or your character portrait, and select 'Leave Instance'.

Just to add to this, if you are AFK too long in here, or get DC'd and come back, your "Leave Instance' will be gone. You'll have to hearth to return.

So I finally attempted the tournament today. Your strategies are spot on. Had to use some other groupings beside the 1st options but worked amazingly well. Thank you. Xu-Fu now belongs to me. (edited)

I love your site and your strategies. I did my first round of the Celestial Tournament last night and sailed through without a hitch. I am so happy to finally have my very own Xu-Fu!

I do not have a lot of pets to do these without pets dying and oftening needing that pet for another battle.. log out.. switch toons.. revive/heal.. log back over.. you are where you left off.

You need 2 Scourged Whelplings, 2 Anubisath Idol and 2 Darkmoon Tonks to use this strategy guide.

Dentarthurdent wrote on 2019-09-06 03:20:54

Funny, I don't have 2 of any of those, and have still used this guide with success 10 times so far (2 coins to go for my final pet).

just did my first trip in there. did the 3 masters for Elekk adventure at the same time. As pointed out in this thread, Mr.Bigglesworth soloed Yu'la pretty easily. i didn't know i would get 2 more coins for first completition, i must have missed that. Now i just have to decide which pet to get first lol thanks all.

If the answer is anything other than Xu-Fu, you're on the wrong site.

Sovietll wrote on 2019-04-19 01:02:11

I think the devs have been upping the Celestials - I find Yu'la is crazy damage, but figured out 3 snails ( lvl 25 acid goo and dive for sure ) take down Chi Chi very effectively. Any advise for Yu'la is very appreciated!

I always just used Mr. Bigglesworth for Yu'la. Easy.

Any updates on the blank page at the end of setting up the planner? I add all of my options, then get a page with some instructions and an edit button, but no list of pets

Aranesh

wrote on 2018-09-24 17:37:34

I'm afraid not. I have very little time to work on Xu-Fu right now and still a whole bunch of smaller fixes to go through before I can focus on another bigger feature like the dungeon guides, sorry.

With the kind of quality work that you put into this planner, I would love to see what your doing as a dungeon guide. Is that published? If so, where can I see it?

So far it's only a concept in my head :S
I use this devlog to keep track of all my tasks and such, if you're curious about what's upcoming and what I'm working on:
https://www.wow-petguide.com/index.php?m=DevLog
It's a lot of text though ^^
