Celestial Tournament: Second Week

Work has been kicking my ass lately so I've been a bit WoW deprived this week. Hence I didn't get to look at this week's Celestial Tournament until Friday. This week's trainers are Wrathion, Taran Zhu, and Chen Stormstout.

Chen Stormstout
{Robo Chicken, Kun-lai Runt, Chuck}
Robo Chicken will handily take out Chen's first pet, a beast. Once that is dead keep your Robo Chicken in until it gets put to sleep. Only then swap the Kun-lai Run in. Proceed to have your Runt Mangle and Rampage until Chen's critter is dead. Then swap in Chuck; Bleed then Blood in the Water, and Surge until the alemental is dead.

{Turtle, Anubisath Idol, Peddlefeet}
Wrathion of course has a team full of dragons. His first dragon is undead with lots of small elemental attacks. Send in the turtle first to Shell Shield and then wear down Wrathion's first pet with Powerball. After that swap in the Anubisath Idol, and put up Stoneskin to take care of the remaining dots. Then just Crush until dead. Bring Peddlefeet in and fill Wrathion's last pet full of arrows.

Taran Zhu
{Ghostly Skull, Fossilized Hatchling, Giant Bone Spider}
Taran Zhu has a team of all monks, so I have lined up an all undead team to take them out. Lead off with the Ghostly Skull and hit Taran Zhu's first monk with Ghostly Bite. It'll stun your Skull, but the monk will take that turn to feign death and swap out anyway. Shadow Slash until your Ghostly Skull dies and then use Unholy Ascension. The timing of this is a bit tricky because the second monk doesn't use blind on CD, so do your best to actually get Ascension to hit. You can still win if it doesn't. Bring in the Fossilized Hatchling second for Bonestorm. Again try to time your abilities so that you use Ancient Blessing when blinded and not Bonestorm. Interleave Bone Bite while waiting for Bonestorm CD. This should take out the first and second monk pets and seriously whittle down the third of Taran Zhu's monks. When your Hatchling dies bring in the Spider and Bone Bite again until you win.

{Pandaren Water Spirit, Chrominius, Hopling}
Because of Wrathion's dragon team I needed to swap out a few humanoids from my Yu'la team. I kept the Hopling, but lead with the Pandaren Water Spirit, and Chrominius. Send in the Water Spirit first, put down Geyser and Whirlpool, then swap to Chrominius for Howl and Surge. The timing should work out so that you are swapping in Chrominius as Yu'la is in the air, and your howl should go out in time to have Geyser and Whirlpool hit for full damage, as well as Surge. If that doesn't kill Yu'la the Hopling can finish things off.

I also tried out winning the Celestial Tournament with a character different from last week. The coins are bind on account so that won't affect anything. I was hoping to get the Rainy Day quest again, but no such luck.
