In PvP I feel this pet is a bit weak, even though it has Wish. Mostly because it's moves are telegraphed in advance, unless you skip Wish and go with Headbutt. This makes it easy to counter with a stun or evade move. Trample need Sunlight to be effective otherwise you should go with Horn Gore. One nice thing is to use a multi turn stun(stun seed, elementium bolt, ice tomb) and switch and do the Charge, will hurt alot. Still a bit too predictable for my taste.

This is a great pet for PvE with wish and his charge, on top of that horn gore is quite powerful, however in PvP it is less effective since the charge is easily countered. (Sorry about not linking the abilities, every time I tried to link my app crashed!)

When you use Niuzao's Charge, it plays one of the Headless Horseman's sound clips:


"Your quest is over, your search is done!  let fate choose now the righteous one."


All it's missing is the cackle at the end.

The pet itself-STROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NG Beast pet, I can't stress this enough, he can clobber most any critter comp in game with Wish, charge, and trample.  Just a stellar beast pet to have, plus who DOESN'T want a tiny yak following you around mooing at you.


The Battle to aquire him-Easily bested with a Thundering Serpent Hatchling and Zandalari Kneebiter(P/P).


Start with Thundering Serpent Hatchling, lead with Lightning Storm, let him kill you with his charge, swap to Kneebiter, Black Claw, Hunting party, He'll be dead by either second, or 3rd round of HP every time.

would be nice if some of these comments actually pertained to the pet rather then the boss/battle that it resembles. Was hoping to find comments about whether it was a good pet or not but all of these celestial pets are filled with comments on how to beat the fights. sort of annoying

Spent 4-5 hours doing the Celestial Tournament to get this little guy. Was a lot harder to complete than I expected, but fun to do so. Looking forward to colleting all 4 of the Celestials.

He is a cute 'lil bugger and does quite well in Pet PvP battles.

Always on the lookout for a fight or some tasty grass, Zao keeps his head down and eyes forward.
