Oonie and Xu-Fu

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 :)

  1. Oh! I like that. I might change my plan now.

    When you say “non conventional”… I spent too much time squinting at the picture. What worked for you?

    • I used three mechanicals on the PTR. This team worked for both Xu-Fu and Zuo but I had to change it up some since I don’t have doubles of them on live.

  2. I went through so many pets trying to figure out what to use I only got Yu’la down and was out of battle pets. He’s such a pretty pet.

    • They are tough battles but I wouldn’t expect anything less from those four. I had to reset the scenario several times due to misses, swapping abilities, etc.

    • I know how you feel. At least you have a week to complete it. GL!

  4. Xu-Fu, I’ve managed beat. The other 3 have kicked my sorry butt. Zao’s Wish ability is EVIL.

    • Yes, too bad it requires quite a bit of luck from RNG. Call lightning and turrets work well on Zao.
