Making Gold During Pilgrim’s Bounty

Posted November 19th, 2010 by Miss Mediocre

I just finished writing my Pilgrim’s Bounty Guide for this year and thought I’d post quickly for anyone who may be interested in using this World Event to make some gold!

Something everyone can make and sell is Spice Bread. You learn it from the cooking trainer right away, and everyone will need at least 20 of them to complete the Pilgrim’s Bounty achievements. Not everyone will want to take the time to make them, so take advantage and have some posted in the Auction House for when the event starts! You could also post the ingredients for Spice Bread (Simple Flour & Mild Spices) in case anyone doesn’t feel like finding a Trade vendor, but wants to cook the Spice Bread themselves.

If you have at least 400 cooking, you can buy the recipe for Tracker Snacks in Dalaran for 3 Dalaran Cooking Awards. These will help anyone going after the Turkinator achievement, and will likely sell well during this event! If you don’t have 400 cooking, you could always hire a chef to make them for you before the Event starts. They are made from a Shoveltusk Flank and Northern Spices.

If you’re lucky enough to be a mage, you could make a lot selling portals to players working on the achievements during Pilgrim’s Bounty. This event takes A LOT of traveling, and I know I’d rather pay a mage a few gold than take the time to travel between all of the major cities a few times each! Hire yourself out for 10g a portal or 5g a minute and be someone’s private taxi. I’ll be offering portals for free on my server, and if you play a mage and want to do some RAKs, you could offer your portals for free as well!

And finally, if you happen to be the proud owner of a Chef’s Hat (like me) or you just don’t mind cooking and have picked up the Pilgrim’s Bounty recipes (in the Bountiful Cookbook purchased from the Pilgrim’s Bounty vendors), you can offer to cook other people’s ingredients for a fee, or cook a bunch yourself and then sell them by the daily quest giver that asks for 20 of them.

To Make Them :

-Turkeys are found in Elwynn Forest and Tiristfall Glades
-Pumpkins are sold outside Stormwind and The Undercity
-Cranberries are sold outside Ironforge or Orgrimmar
-Sweet Potatoes are sold outside Darnasus and Thunder Bluff
-The ingredients for Stuffing are sold from all Pilgrim’s Bounty vendors

To Sell Them :

-Turkeys and Stuffing turn in outside of Ironforge or Orgrimmar
-Sweet Potatoes and Cranberries turn in outside of Stormwind or Undercity
-Pumpkin Pies turn in outside of Darnasus or Thunder Bluff

I’m going to try selling pies in Darnasus, because who wants to run all the way back to Elwynn Forest to buy the pumpkins to make 20 pies to turn in back in Darnasus, hehe.

I’m sure most of you Gold Gurus have thought of most of these things already, but hopefully I had an idea or two that had yet to cross your mind!

Thanks for Reading!

    I like how you reminded me of the Tracker’s Snacks, as I’ve forgotten this while preparing for the Pilgrim’s Bounty. Thanks!

    Great Guide! I too forgot about Tracker’s Snacks – good thing I’m still doing my cooking daily.

    Vayaz & Incindia : Glad I could remind you! :D

    Tracker Snacks are a neat idea, but… are they really that useful? What I remember from last year (when I leveled all my banker alts’ cooking skills) was that turkeys were everywhere! I mean, you couldn’t take ten steps without tripping over them.

    I guess I could see it being annoying if you’re just looking around Brill or Goldshire where everyone else is trying to get theirs, but… they’re in the entire zone and they respawn super fast.

    That said, I’ll give this a try! Worst case, they don’t sell and I use them while leveling in Cataclysm! Thanks for the suggestion. I love your site!

    Michael : I think they help! I was killing turkeys around the Eastvale logging camp last year, and ran out of turkeys few times because someone else would be killing them around me. It might not be a big issue if your server has a smaller population or you don’t attempt it at prime hours, but either way, the tracker snacks will give you an edge! :)

    Well. The Tracker snacks did sell sometimes, but only advertising them in Trade chat.

    Obviously they are not all too helpful (especially since the usual beasts are also tracked), but it’s not like people would care about how useful they really are when told “they’ll show you the turkeys” – which is not wrong, but not the whole truth either.
