The August Celestials are one of the factions introduced in the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria expansion.

Earning Reputation with the August Celestials
To begin earning reputation with the August Celestials players must first reach level 90. On top of reaching the level cap, players will also need to complete the quest "A Celestial Task", which requires you to reach Revered reputation with the Golden Lotus, another faction added in World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria. This quest can be picked up from either Sage Lotusbloom in the Shrine of Two Moons (Horde) or from Sage Whiteheart in the Shrine of Seven Stars (Alliance). Both these locations are inside the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.
When "A Celestial Task" has been completed players will then be able to begin completing daily quests for this faction. To learn more about August Celestial daily quests continue on to the section below.
August Celestial Daily Quests
After meeting the prerequisites outlined above, players will be able to take on the daily quests for this faction. Daily quests for the August Celestials are currently the best way to earn reputation. Unlike other factions who's daily quests come from one location, players will find themselves sent to the four temples located in Pandaria. To discover which temple will require your services each day players need only to speak with their Quartermaster: Sage Lotusbloom in the Shrine of Two Moons for Horde players or from Sage Whiteheart in the Shrine of Seven Stars for Horde players.

- Trial at the Temple of the White Tiger

Each of the above quests will lead you onward to one of the temples on Pandaria, as well as to the daily quests you will be completing that day.
