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