Recently, the August Celestials of Pandaria presented you with a challenge - and you triumphed.
But can you defeat them in combat? They are testing the mettle of all of Pandaria's heroes.
This challenge is not impossible, but you'll need to follow the advice of the last Pandaren Emperor and approach this challenge with unwavering inner strength. You'll also need a small army, so find a group of people you trust.
Defeat the four celestials here in the Celestial Court, and our journey is almost complete...
This will take perseverance, champion. Be fleet of foot and pay attention to the emperor's advice!
An impressive display of martial skill, <class>! You have truly walked the path of the emperor, and demonstrated the very traits pandaren value most.
See each of the Celestials' tactics articles for strategies on defeating them: Chi-Ji, Niuzao, Xuen, and Yu'lon.
In the process of completing this quest, adventurers will earn the Pandaria Raid achievement [Celestial Challenge] upon defeat of the fourth Celestial.
