The Celestial Tournament

Quick Info:

Last updated 2021-01-10

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 3 with Sully "The Pickle" McLeary, Dr. Ion Goldbloom and Lorewalker Cho
EU: Week 1 with Taran Zhu, Wrathion and Chen Stormstout

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 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!

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?)

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!

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.

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.
