Timewalking: The Burning Crusade

Timewalking: The Burning Crusade.

Timewalking Burning Crusade:

This Timewalking event: Burning Crusade is a fantastic opportunity if you need to reach Revered and Exalted reputation for Factions within Outland. There are plenty of recipes, transmog locked behind these reputation milestones, i.e., Shattered Sun Offensive, Keeper’s of Time, and The Consortium, to name a few.

With the buff: Sign of the Twisted Nether, we get a 50% increase in reputation gains from combat and quests. So if you plan on doing the dailies for the Shattered Sun Offensive, along with doing the Normal/Heroic runs of Magister’s Terrace, this is the best time to do it!

You must be level 50 or above to participate in the random Timewalking dungeon.


Check those Alts!

If you remember my post regarding the World Event: WoW’s Anniversary, and followed my advice, to log in all your alts, you will have earnt some easy Timewarped Badges on them. Now is their moment to shine!

If your character is level 30 or above, they can access the vendor Cupri.

Log all your level 30 alts, and purchase any commendations you need and mail them to the character that requires the reputation boost. If you’re unsure what commendations are, and where to buy them, check out the next part of this blog post: Reputations to Grind.


Reputations To Grind:

Here’s a reminder of some of the factions to grind during this Timewalking Event.

Alternatively, check out the Timewalking vendor, Cupri. She sells an assortment of items for your hard-earned Timewarped Badges, including commendations. Here’s a list of commendations that will be of interest to you.

For a very well-detailed guide on farming reputations with Outland factions during the Timewalking: Burning Crusade event, check out Wowhead’s guide.


Reputation Tokens:

You may wish to either purchase these from the Auction House or check out Wowhead, for the best places to farm them. Remember, handing in these tokens, while under the buff: Sign of the Twisted Nether will reward you with a 50% extra reputation!

Cenarion Expedition:

Unidentified Plant Parts (Hand in up to Friendly)

Lower City:

Arakkoa Feather (Hand in until Honored)

The Aldor:

Mark of Kil’jaeden (Hand in until Honored)
Mark of Sargeras (Hand in until Exalted)
Fel Armament (Hand in until Exalted)

The Scryers:

Firewing Signet (Hand in until Honored)
Sunfury Signet (Hand in until Exalted)
Arcane Tome (Hand in until Exalted)

If you’re considering obtaining the Achievement: Hero of Shattrath you will need to farm or purchase the following items in order to decrease the reputation with the faction you were exalted with first.

Dampscale Basilisk Eye (Aldor to The Scryers Neutral)
Dreadfang Venom Sac (The Scryers to Aldor Neutral)


Farming Instances & Dailies to farm Rep:

Once you hit a reputation milestone for a specific Faction, you will be restricted to earning reputation either via Faction specific dailies, or instances associated with the Faction.

Check out Wowhead’s Rep farming guide. Scroll down to The Burning Crusade!


Bag of Fishing Treasures:

Another great shout is purchasing the Bag of Fishing Treasures from Cupri. This bag will set you back 150 Timewarped Badges. It has the chance to reward you with a BoP companion pet; there are four available.

I’d only recommend doing this method if you have nothing else to purchase with your Timewarped Badges. Alternatively, shop the Auction House for these pets instead.

Ideally, you want to purchase these pets while the event is active, when the event has finished, these companion pets will become valuable once more. I regularly post these at 7.5k-10k each for a level 1 battle pet. If you have a level 25, consider adding 5k on top of its value.


Recipes of Interest:

There are far too many recipes to name, but I can assure you there’s a lot of gold to be made by acquiring some of the recipes locked behind Outland factions.

We’re not looking to flip these recipes, more so, learn them and craft the items.

Here are a few notable mentions from past experiences.

Recipe: Flask of Supreme Power (Keepers of Time)
Formula: Enchant Weapon – Greater Agility (The Violet Eye)
Jewelcrafting Recipes (Shattered Sun Offensive)

Some Sales highlighting how profitable these recipes are!


Consumables:

As a reminder (especially for those that are not already familiar with Timewalking and the Mage Tower) there are scaling benefits for min-maxing your gear for participating in Timewalking content. Ideally, you want to have the best gear, gem slots, and consumables, but be aware of potential Legendary, Legion Legendary effects, and Azerite Power restrictions.

Remember, the more gem slots on your gear the better!

Gems:

The gems from Dragon Soul (Queen’s Garnet cuts) are best in slot. However, if you’re low on funds, always consider other gem cuts, Primordial Ruby, Inferno Ruby, Cardinal Ruby, and Crimson Spinel. The meta gems are very significant too.

Enchants:

Due to level restrictions/limitations with enchants you need to follow a simple rule.

If your item is;

Below ilvl 50, use an enchant below level 50.
Above ilvl 50, use a level 50 enchant
.

Belt Buckles:

As mentioned above, gem slots are important, so equipping a belt buckle will add a gem slot to your waist. Ideally, you want the Living Steel Belt Buckle.

Check the r/Timewalking team for Timewalking tips and tricks. Also, there’s a great guide via Wowhead for optimizing your gear for all Timewalking Events. Make sure you follow the information regarding the event you’re interested in, importantly, TBC!

World Event: Pilgrim’s Bounty

World Event: Pilgrim's Bounty

Pilgrims Bounty:

With Thanksgiving on the horizon, it’s time for players within World of Warcraft to celebrate and participate in the World Event: Pilgrim’s Bounty. This event will last for one week, starting on the 23rd November, until 30th November.


What Are The Benefits Of This Event?

The main benefit of this event is leveling your Cooking Profession to 280; this is ideal for players with a lot of alts or new players. There’s a Companion Pet you can earn and learn on the gold-making front, called the Frightened Bush Chicken, alternatively known as, the Bush Chicken. More information is below.


Getting Started:

Scattered around your Factions major city, you will find Commoners that will offer you a quest to get started.

Horde: Visit Miles Standish, Ruins of Lorderon, Tirisfal Glades [61.67], to get started.

Alliance: Visit Gregory Tabor, Stormwind Gate, Elwynn Forest [34.51], to get started.


Cooking:

As mentioned above, Cooking is an ideal profession to level during Pilgrim’s Bounty. If you’ve mistreated your cooking profession (like myself), or maybe you have a new character, this event will benefit you. Not only is this method easy to follow, but it’s a lot cheaper too!

You will need to purchase a Bountiful Cookbook from a Pilgrim’s Bounty vendor. This cookbook will help you level your cooking profession to level 280! I’ve added details below of their location. Reminder, if you don’t have the Recipe: Spiced Bread learned already, visit the cooking trainer close by. Horde: Roberta Carter or Alliance: Ellen Moore.

Horde: Within the Ruins of Lorderon, Tirisfal Glades, locate the Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendor, Rose Standish [61.67]. She is situated beside Miles Standish.

Alliance: At the Gates of Stormwind, Elwynn Forest, beside Gregory Tabor, you’ll find the Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendor, Wilmina Holbeck [34.51].

Once you’ve purchased the Bountiful Cookbook, use it, and you will receive five recipes. I’ve also added the required cooking level in brackets. Be warned the recipes linked below, are Horde versions. To view the Alliance version, click here.

Each Faction has its Dailies and City’s to visit, so for ease of use, I’ve separated them. Importantly, the value of materials needed may differ due to RNG. When completing the dailies, consider opting for the Reward: Pilgrim’s Bounty, as this can contain a BoP toy, Sliver-Plated Turkey Shooter, or the Companion Pet, Frightened Bush Chicken.

Horde Players:

Required Cooking Level: 1-100

Complete the Daily: Don’t Forget the Stuffing!

Required Cooking Level: 100-160

Complete the Daily: Easy as Pie

Required Cooking Level: 160-220

Complete the Daily: We’re Out of Cranberry Chutney Again?

Required Cooking Level: 220-280

Complete the Daily: She Says Potato

Required Cooking Level: 280

Complete the Daily: Can’t Get Enough Turkey

Alliance Players:

Required Cooking Level: 1-100

Complete the Daily: Don’t Forget the Stuffing!

Required Cooking Level: 100-160

Complete the Daily: Easy as Pie

Required Cooking Level: 160-220

Complete the Daily: We’re Out of Cranberry Chutney Again?

Required Cooking Level: 220-280

Complete the Daily: She Says Potato

Required Cooking Level: 280

Complete the Daily: Can’t Get Enough Turkey


Frightened Bush Chicken:

As mentioned already, there’s not a great deal gold-making-wise, but one standout opportunity is obtaining the Pilgrim’s Bounty from daily quests. This reward has a chance of a Companion Pet called the Frightened Bush Chicken, and I managed to obtain this pet from my second Pilgrim’s Bounty.

Looting the Frightened Bush Chicken

The Companion Pet unlearned can net you approximately 25-30k on the Auction House. However, if you were to learn it, you could bump that price point up to 40-45k, depending on your realm.

Remember, items obtained during an event will dramatically reduce in value due to the increase in supply. I always advise selling any items obtained from an event later, importantly, when the event has finished. You will notice as the supply slowly goes down, the valuations gradually increase again – supply and demand!

For valuations of this Companion Pet/Battle Pet for your realm, may I remind you of our trusted friends at The Undermine Journal. They have up-to-date pricing information for all realms.


Reminder:

May I also remind you, that the World Event: WoW’s Anniversary Event is ongoing. Check out my blog post here, to see what’s on offer. It’s never been a better time to level those alts.

World Event – Brewfest

World Event - Brewfest

Brewfest:

On Monday 20th September (yesterday) saw the long-awaited return of the world event, Brewfest. Participating in the activities available to us during this event gives us many opportunities to make a substantial amount of gold.

Items of interest include the Terrific Tankard O’ Terror, Tremendous Tankard O’ Terror, and the companion pets, Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm, and the Stout Alemental. It’s also worth noting the companion pet, Wolpertinger. This pet is Bind on Pickup, you will need to learn and cage this pet to sell this on the Auction House.

Here’s a reminder of my blog post, Tankards O’ Profit, from last year outlining some of the sales I made by flipping ilvl 82 Tankards.

Wowhead doesn’t have the correct IDs for the ilvl 184 version of the Tankards, so I’ve added links to the ilvl 44 version.  If you’d like to search the Auction House for this specific ilvl, here’s a helpful string;

Tankard O’ terror/i184/i184


Tankards:

The last time Brewfest came to town was towards the end of the expansion, Battle for Azeroth. The Tankards that you could earn throughout that event were better than the crafted Uncanny weapons, meaning that these Tankards were a viable option for newly leveled characters at level 120 (before the level squish). Since the release of Shadowlands, these Tankards have scaled down to level 50, with an ilvl of 82. Funnily enough, these still periodically sell between 35-50k each – I even sold one 4 weeks ago!

ilvl 82 (level 50) Tankard O' Terror Sale

This time around, the Tankards are ilvl 184 (equivalent to Mythic 0 loot) for players at level 60. Sadly, these Tankards are much lower than the weapons you can obtain via world quests, the mission table (depending on your renown level), and Korthian Armaments (depending on RNG).

However, don’t give up hope. Some players are eager to bump up that ilvl as quickly as possible, so there could still be a market for level 60 Tankards; It’s too soon to say either way. This blog post serves as a reminder of the potential gold you could make if there’s still a viable market for these Tankards.


Tankard Sales (Update):

To view my recent blog, on the sales update for Tankards purchased from the World Event: Brewfest (2021) click here.


Companion Pets:

We have three companion pets available to us, the Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm (100 Tokens), Stout Alemental (200 Tokens), and the Wolpertinger (200 Tokens).

The aim here is to obtain 500 tokens and either sell the two companion pets on your current realm or learn them, then cage them on your alternative realm to sell. I’ve added some prices to give you an idea of the average region market value for both the U.S and E.U regions.

Region Median prices obtained from TheUndermineJournal

(C) = Companion Pet
(BP) = Battle Pet (caged version)
[#] = Level of the Battle Pet

Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm (C)
  • U.S 15,000g
  • E.U 6,928g
Pint-Sized Pink Pachyderm (BP)
  • U.S [01] 3,070g | [25] 7,382g
  • E.U [01] 3,340g | [25] 5,504g
Stout Alemental (C)
  • U.S 14,470g
  • E.U 12,564g
Stout Alemental (BP)
  • U.S [01] 9,998g | [25] 14,243g
  • E.U [01] 6,095g | [25] 9,319g
Wolpertinger (BP)
  • U.S [01] 81g | [25] 6,989g
  • E.U [01] 1,844g | [25] 8,999g

Disclaimer: These prices serve as a guide and will change a lot over the next couple of weeks while Brewfest is available; check the prices for your realm for a precise valuation.


Brewfest Guide:

For a comprehensive guide to all that’s available during the world event – Brewfest, may I lead you in the direction of Wowhead. This guide has been updated for 9.1 Shadowlands.


Conclusion:

It’s a real shame Blizzard didn’t increase the ilvl of the Tankards, maybe ilvl 200, to coincide with current Korthian Armaments. The fact these Tankards are equivalent to Mythic 0 (ilvl 184) means there’s potentially a low demand for these items. However, Brewfest has only been available for a day, so we’ll need more time to fully evaluate the market.

I’ve managed to purchase a couple of the ilvl 184 Tankards between 300-2500g each to test the waters. I can easily afford to lose this gold, so it’s well worth the risk for me. Remember, only invest the gold; you’re willing to lose!

There could be potential value with lower ilvl Tankards, too, because loot scaling to your level (i.e. ilvl 82 for level 50 players) these items could be of value to players that have purchased a level boost, starting at level 50.

While companion pets/battle pets are a viable option, be warned that the battle pet market is very niche, and sales can take a while.


Before I go:

I just wanted to touch on why I’ve been relatively quiet here; I’ve been playing a lot on my main, trying to obtain as many resources in preparation for patch 9.1.5. With the ability to send resources to our alts, this finally makes it viable for me to play my alts and quickly boost their renown when the patch releases.

I’ve hardly posted auctions either, just concentrated on selling Shadowlands Enchants, Leatherworking, and Cooking on my main. I still have a week till I have to empty and repost my mail on my Auction House characters before they expire. So will possibly add a fortnightly review in a week or two.

World of Warcraft Events Available This Week.

Gold-Making with the Darkmoon Faire

World Events:

Good afternoon guys. This week we’re fortunate to have three World Events available to us. Tomorrow is the first Sunday of the month; this means the return of the Darkmoon Faire. There are also two other events: Noblegarden (Monday), and the Burning Crusade Timewalking event (Wednesday). 

Check your calendar in-game for further information.


The Darkmoon Faire:

At 00:01 this Sunday morning, the Darkmoon Faire will be accessible again. For a detailed guide on what to do, check out my Darkmoon Faire guide. There’s plenty of gold-making opportunities with Darkmoon Aritfacts, Companion Pets, Darkmoon Daggermaw, and Replica Transmog.

You don’t have to compete in all the markets that I advise, but do what you feel is better suited to you and your realm. Check The Undermine Journal (TuJ) to see what markets are profitable on your realm.

For an alternative guide, check out the Darkmoon Faire Made Easy – Author: GamerSmoosh


Noblegarden Event:

On Monday, we will see the return of the event: Noblegarden. If you deal in the Swift Springstrider market, be prepared for the prices to start plummeting. The Auction House will start becoming oversaturated by these mounts, driving down its valuation. This is a great opportunity for gold-makers to purchase cheap Swift Springstrider’s to sell once the event has finished.

Alternatively, you can earn the Swift Springstrider and the Companion Pet: Noblegarden Bunny by completing tasks and earning the currency Brightly Colored Egg. To purchase both items, you will need to collect 500 Brightly Colored Egg and 200 Brightly Colored Egg, respectively. These can be posted on the Auction House, but I suggest waiting till the event has finished when the demand is greater than the supply!

If you intend to farm these mounts, it’s important to remember that the mount Swift Springstrider is a unique mount. This means only one of them can be present within your inventory (including your personal bank) at any one time. I suggest using a Guild Bank to help store these.

For a complete and comprehensive guide, please check out Noblegarden Guide by Wowhead.


The Burning Crusade Timewalking Event:

Also, this Wednesday (reset day), we’ll see the Burning Crusade Timewalking event. Due to my unforeseen break a couple of months back, I missed the last time this was available, and thankfully I’m here this time around. This event is a great opportunity if you require recipes that are locked behind a specific Burning Crusade reputation.

For example, I need to boost my Keepers of Time reputation to earn/learn the Recipe: Flask of Supreme Power. Using 50x Timewarped Badge, I can purchase 500 rep with the Keepers of Time and power-level my reputation. This recipe is Bind on Pickup (BoP) so is purely for crafting purposes.

If you’re like me, you may have many alts that have collected Timewarped Badges; although the badges are not Bind on Account (BoA), the reputation tokens are. Log in to your alt(s) and visit the vendor Cupri. Once you’ve purchased your badges, access the mailbox and send them to the character that needs the specific reputation badge.

It’s worth noting if you have no interest in Reputation Tokens, scaled gear and you’d like some recommendations, check out the Bag of Fishing Treasure for 150 Timewarped Badge. You have an 11% chance to loot the following Companion Pet from the bag.

If you earn one of these Companion Pets, learn it, and cage it to post on the Auction House. Depending on your realm, you can sell these from 10k each. Slightly more, if leveled to level 25. Check The Undermine Journal (TuJ) for detailed valuations for your realm.

For a comprehensive guide on the Burning Crusade Timewalking event, check out Wowhead.
