I definitely need to expand my roster. I have an overweight of aquatic pets since that's what you find most of in Pandaria. >.<
Bookmarked this thread for when the patch hit. Need that xu-fu pet for my crazy cat man title
Any chance you could list the stats on the celestial bosses? (HP, Power, Speed)
They take 50% reduced damage because of the boss buff and cannot take damage higher than 35% of their max hp. All of them have a healing ability which heals for a lot and do insane amounts of damage.
Zao looks like he'll be a beast pet for PvP pet battles. Super tank!
What about the other normal trainers in the tournament, are the epic pets particulary hard?
My strategy for Chi-Ji would be tripple nexus whelp (power build) Could also replace 1 of them with a mindflayer and do a double dmg manasurge
Arcane Storm (the target is immune anyway, might aswell get weathe going for manasurge)
Manasurge (continues 3 rounds, or stops faster if the dragon gets killed)
Other 2 whelps adjust their attack sequence to the previous targste death
onyx bite spam till the cat dies
Scourged whelp (hp build)
Shadowflame spam till Call darknes is back (should be able to use it "the turn after death")
fury of 1k fists
repeat that till dead
Zandalari kneebiter (speed build)
repeat till the dragon dies
heartbroken (charge should hit the same turn as zap, wish is on cd= trample will be used) buffing the bomb allready in mid air
If the ox survives that (the bomb and the zaps combined would do +/- 1900 dmg)
Tranquil mech yeti
Even if the wish landed on the turn of the 2nd zap, he'd be around 1200 before the zap, 800ish after and the mech yeti will remove that by the time call lightning hits, the 2nd ion cannon is only needed if the ox somehow has low hp left
check out my latest podcast episode, I broke my ankle
Blitz does weak damage versus beasts so Clockwork Gnome using blitz vs Xu-Fu is a suicide.
Too much heal reduction versus Yu'la. Her only heal ability has a 3 turn cooldown and she only activates it once at the end ( if you are doing it right ) and whether you reduce the heal or not your pet still gets its HP halved. What you need to do there is having strong humanoid attacks, fast humanoid interrupters/doggers.
The Zao team you have posted also doesn't seem trustworthy because Zao only has one 1 turn attack ( the rest are 2 round attack and a heal ) so you will miss your heartbroken buff most of the time ( as it was with me ) and XT doesn't have enough damage output to take it down. Call Lightning pet and Build Turret pet ( clockwork ) would work though. Or Call Lightning with any good DoT.

Nice guide. I'll have to improve my roster though.
Also: Niuzao's calf stole my name!
So is this the token stupid post? WoW is developed by separate teams for each aspect of the game. The UI team handles the pet battles, while the dungeon team handles, well , dungeons. If you don't like pet battles, don't do them. But you'd be surprised how many people do like them, so for blizzard its a solid investment.Ah so this is why we didn't get any new heroic dungeons this expansion, the team was too busy adding more Pokemon tournaments. (the dev time has to come from somewhere).
Back to topic, The tournament looks like something I'd really want to do, just need to level up a few guys to 25. That Xuen pet looks awesome, I need that ;p

It's such a pleasure leveling Lil' Xuen <3 Gotta love one shotting critters with no CD ability and healing 70-80% hp with 1 ability xD
