Celestial Knock Out

This is what I’ve been using for the Celestial Tournament over the last couple of weeks. Some teams are based on the pets I had on the PTR (which were quite limited compared to what I have on live) but I’ve had the best level of success with these combinations. I try not to reuse a pet twice and in most occasions used more common pets for replication.

Week 1

Taran Zhu – Devouring Maggot, Lost of Lordaeron, Ruby Droplet
If you don’t manage to kill Li before he has a chance to feign, be aware that he will use it as soon as he steps in to battle a second time. He always uses his feign ability to block any attack you throw out so don’t waste your big hitters (with CDs) on him.

Wrathion – Darkmoon Rabbit, Kun-Lai Runt, Anubisath Idol
A rabbit is my pet of choice since it’s fast (Snowshoe Rabbit also works) and can block the frost bomb if timed right.

Chen Stormstout – Son of Animus, Stunted Direhorn, Sea Pony

Week 2

Ion Goldbloom
Dr. Ion Goldbloom – Lil’ Tarecgosa, Crimson Whelping, Lil’ Smoky
Sully ‘The Pickle’ McLeary – Snowshoe Rabbit, Direhorn Runt, Amber Moth
Lorewalker Cho – Coilfang Stalker, Untamed Hatchling, Dark Whelping

Week 3

Kiryn battle
Wise Mari – Crow, Untamed Hatchling, Chuck
Shademaster Kiryn – Winter’s Little Helper, Crawling Claw, Darkmoon Zeppelin
Blingtron 4000 – Tiny Red Carp, Pygmy Direhorn, Grinder

Celestial Offspring

Yula battle
Yu’la – Peddlefeet, Kun-Lai Runt, Bonkers

Zao battle
Zao – Landro’s Lil XT, Clockwork Gnome, Darkmoon Tonk

Substitutes: Lil’ Smoky (first slot)

Xu- battle
Xu-Fu – Sunreaver Micro-Sentry, Elder Python, Menagerie Custodian

Substitute: Tranquil Mechanical Yeti (slot one), Bananas (slot two)

With Call Lightning you want to get as many dots or multi-hitting abilities rolling on her so if you use the snake, apply both dots. Similarly, use Banana Barrage from the ape or with a spider, use web > swarm.

Chi-Chi battle
Chi-Chi – Unborn Val’kyr, Jade Oozeling, Chrominius

  1. Doom and then Unholy Ascension.
  2. Hit Corrosion twice since she’ll block the first one. Followed by Expunge.
  3. When the Jade Oozeling dies, don’t use Surge of Power yet because Chi-Chi will block the attack. Use a filler like Howl so the next attack (Surge) can finish her off.

Some battles are just fun to watch.

  3. I gave up on the four celestials before even starting. It seems I need to level other pets. Do you think you could have managed it even without TCG-pets?

    • Yes, definitely. You could try the Sunreaver Micro-Sentry (Call Lightning) or Lil’ Smoky in place of Landro’s Lil XT. The Baby Ape and Darkmoon Monkey have the same abilities as Bananas and try the Unborn Val’kyr (Doom and Unholy Ascension after you come back to life) or anything else with Doom for the Lichling.

      Let me know how you go.

      • I’m leveling all your suggestions now for the celestials, hope it will work. :) Having an infinite number of pets would really help. xD

  4. I still need to improve certain pets. And my luck at catching a Val’kyr has been poor. :(

    • Best of luck in getting a Val’kyr and sorting out your collection.
