The Celestial Tournament

Welcome to Xu-Fu's Celestial Tournament guide!

The Celestial Tournament is a special event 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, and this is where Xu-Fu comes in with the Celestial Tournament Planner.

WARNING

The Celestial Tournament planner was created years ago and not updated to support the newer features of Xu-Fu's, such as required breeds, additional strategies, family specific pets, new Rematch format etc.
You can try to still use it, but chances are high that it will error out at some point in the process.
Due to its age, this tool will not be updated. I will replace it with a new dungeon helper tool eventually. Sorry for the trouble!

Or if you've already gone through the planner before and noted down your Planner ID, punch it in here to go to your personal strategies:



Below you will find a list of pets that are suitable to beat the Celestial Tournament. You do not necessarily need those pets, but with them you can use the first alternative listed here on every fight:

I am so sad, the planner is broken and I have lost my teams from rematch with the new patch. My backup is also broken.

I can't make new teams with the planner, or check out individual strats.

Do you think it will be possible to fix your fantastic planner again?

After reloading and sweet talking the planner for a while I got access to the individual strats.
You saved my bacon again, thank you.

Hey! I just tested the planner and it was working fine for me :-)
Are you using an old planner ID perhaps? That might be the reason for it. Worst case you might have to do the planning part again :/ Sorry about that

I'm having the same problem. Went through planning and my overview page just has a button to edit setup.

I am also having the same issue. I just went thru the planning phase and get the same screen as show above once i try to get to the overview. I am using chrome (is this the wrong browser?). I'm willing to accept user error, but would love a shove in the correct direction. Thanks for all your hard work and effort, this site has been very helpful with so many of my battles up to the celestial tournament.

Definitely not a user problem. It's a bug in the page :/ And one that eludes me so far. Sorry for the trouble - best check the strats individually for now

For some reason, even when I updated my pets' collection everywhere here, this planner is still showing I"m missing Darkmoon Tonk, which I have for a long time on lvl 25. Planner however marks is as "Missing"

Is it perhaps required 2 times in the same strategy? That's most often the case when this happens

On the main Celestial Tournament dungeon page, is there a way for the list of your pets compared to what is needed to show what specific breed of that pet is needed, if it calls for it in the strategies? I'm not sure how plausible it is, but I know one of the zandalari pets needed Speed and mine did not have it unfortunately.

I'm using the list as a guide to what I need to obtain/level up still and think it would be a nice addition, if possible. Thanks for all you do!

Hey!

Unfortunately this tool is way older than the newer parts of the page, which include breed requirements and such. It will be a larger undertaking to update the celestial tournament and right now my focus is on getting ready for the next addon. Meaning, it will probably not happen anytime soon, sorry :/

Alternative 3 was a fail - my ankleender died before it could start the fight - guess it needs to be faster than Xu-Fu - this rendered this option a total fail as all these pets got killed. Devised another setup With:

Darkmoon Zeppelin 222 - decoy, flyby, explode - zepp dies
Ikky 111 - Black claw, flock - ikky dies
Stonegrinder 121 - Scrreching gears finished off Xu-Fu

Hi there, I'm new to the site which looks great btw, and can't wait to start building a team for the Celestial Tournament, and though it's probably obvious, I can't find which actual breeds to use in the lists of pets you suggest, I've got lots of the listed pets but some are low level & don't really want to spend time levelling the ones which are wrong breeds.
Thanks Les

I don't understand how you can have 4 occurences of Scourged Whelpling since you can only have 3 occurences of a pet.

Thanks for this great & powerful tool. It would be wonderful if there were some sort of accompanying addon to easily select pets and view notes in-game.

Unfortunately, the top strategy for the Wise Mari fight does not work for me. I have a p/p gryphon, a h swamp croaker, and both breeds of scourged whelpling. Following the instructions, verbatim, I lose 3/4 attempts. I often don't even get to the second flock, and otherwise die long before the "slicing wind until dead" step.

Hey! The best addon I can recommend is Rematch. It does pretty much what you ask for :-)

At some point I will have to revisit the Celestial Tournament but for the moment I would like to ask you to try one of the other strategies for Wise Mari

Thanks for responding. Even without regular updates, it makes your site feel vibrant and rich.

I do use rematch and it's fantastic - I also think it's awesome the way your site exports into rematch formats. When I mentioned addon support, though, I was really thinking more along the lines of a tool that could take a tournament ID from your site and import the whole thing at once. Perhaps even taking inventory of available pets and generating the match-ups dynamically. I haven't really experimented w/ the "notes during battle" feature of rematch, but it does seem like it would require a whole lot of copy/paste work to get the site data into it.

Still, as is the site helped me get where I need to be and I thank you for it!

You are very welcome, thank you for the praise :-)

I do have bigger plans for automations and exports like that. Maybe not exactly along the lines of your idea, but similar ^^ I'm about ...80% done with a login system, where you can register an account (through battle.net verification, much like "login with facebook", but using battle.net). This grabs your pet collection from the armory. That's the first step I'm working on.

Next step will be the more exciting one. I will rework the strategy alternatives, so instead of being numbered in a specific order, the page crosscheckes the alternatives with your pet collection and gives you the one you have the pets for on top. Then I could also redo the tournament planner because it could just do everything automatically and in the end spew out a long rematch import link and a list of strategies.

Well, that's the plan for now :-) My time for developing features is limited so progress is a bit slow, but I'm getting there eventually ^^
