What can I say? I’ve been excited about the patch because it not only meant I could take in everything the Timeless Isle had to offer but I’ve been itching to show Cool around the place. It wasn’t as laggy as I expected and we even did a few of the quests including the daily but I was intent on completing the Celestial Tournament. I know we have a week to do it but I was anxious about completing it with my actual collection of pets.
Before I headed in, I noticed that Tommy Newcomer (the pet tamer on the Timeless Isle) actually had a quest now. It’s a pretty simple fight for an Elite pet, only this time you’ll be battling Lil’ Oondasta. He really is a miniature version using Spiritfire Beam, Frill Blast and Crush.
Next was the Tournament.
I had always planned on picking Xu-Fu as my first celestial pet but I didn’t expect him to be the battle I was stuck on. He was actually one of the easier ones on the PTR but when I managed to beat the other three Celestials, I wasn’t going to give up so easily as I would have had to fight the first six again. As my active pet collection started to dwindle from every loss, I finally won using a non conventional team.
I was so relieved to win my first Celestial Tournament.
Whee! One down, three more to go.
Now to work on some of those achievements :)
