Anyone looking to dip their fingers into the pet market, will be interested to know a few tips regarding holiday pets. Holiday pets can be a real gold maker and knowing when to buy and sell them can make you an absolute mint… hell, if anyone would know, it’s me! What an ideal time to create this post, with Hallow’s End here and the Feast of Winter Veil on the horizon.
It’s safe to say, if the price is right, you can buy a holiday pet at any given time, but the prime time is when the event is available, as the market is always flooded with them. With TSM3, I can set up a group and assign pets to a set price, so when I make searches, it will find a pet within that price source and then I have the decision whether to buy it or not. As ever, each server will have its own price for any given holiday pet. It’s down to your ability to find out what’s the best price and then buy up any cheap pets that you think will net you a profit.
What we want to do, is buy up these pets and store them. You can either learn them and keep them in your collection, or simply cage them and store in your Bank or Guild Bank. Essentially, we’re looking at stocking these up and waiting for the supply to die down, then once there’s a demand, we then start to sell them. This will sometimes vary from a couple of Weeks to a couple of Months, but the longer the better.
Here’s an example of holiday pets to buy and pets to ignore, this Hallow’s End.
The reason I ignore the Sinister Squashling, is there’s just so many of them, that they never really die down from the Auction House meaning that there’s never ever any demand for them. They also drop from the Headless Horseman. However, the previous 3 pets are always in demand. The Feline Familiar is needed for an achievement, [Crazy for Cats] so will always be wanted. The Cursed Birman and Widget the Departed are very good sellers and at level 25, could net you around the 15k-20k mark depending on your server. These are only obtained via the Tricky Treat vendor during Hallow’s End for 150 tricky Treats.
The best way to get these treats, is doing The Headless Horseman daily Dungeon and flying to all the Candy Buckets. There are 129 Candy Buckets scattered around and each one will offer you between 0-3 Treats. I managed to get 241 after looting them all. You might get lucky and get 300+ thus getting you 2 pets, but it depends if the RNG gods are looking down on you…lol.
Remember, if you buy level 1 pets, you can power level them to level 22 in 6 minutes or level 25 in 10 minutes, battling Squirt from your Level 3 Menagerie. Squirt is available every 15 days. Read my post HERE for a guide on power leveling with Squirt.
