Gobble Gobble Nom Nom: It’s XP Time!
It’s that time of year again WOWheads: Pilgrim’s Bounty! Not only can you get a title and a free pet turkey (who you can’t cook and serve at the dinner table) but you can also get some massive XP from the daily quests and level up your cooking quick and easy. Pilgrim’s Bounty starts on November 20 and ends November 27. One full week of eating, cooking and questing can fill any player up to last until next year (or the next major world event).
Roasting Skill Points in Cooking:
Cooking is a pain for most who don’t level their cooking as they level their toon. There are many level 85’s walking around who only know how to make Spice Bread. Whether you dislike cooking or just don’t’ have the gold/meat/fish for leveling it up, Pilgrim’s Bounty offers plentiful recipes with plentiful skill points for your Cooking profession. There are 5 recipes that one can learn whether you are level 1 or level 85. Each recipe also creates a food that gives buffs respectively.
- Spice Bread Stuffing can be learned at level 1 and can level your character’s cooking up to level 100
- Pumpkin Pie can be learned at level 100 and can level your character’s cooking up to level 160
- Cranberry Chutney can be learned at level 160 and can level your character’s cooking up to level 220
- Candied Sweet Potato can be learned at level 220 and can level your character’s cooking up to level 280
- Slow-Roasted Turkey can be learned at level 280 and can level your character’s cooking up to level 340
The best thing about leveling your cooking during this once-a-year world event is that the ingredients are very easy to obtain. The herbs, pumpkins, cranberries and potatoes can be purchased at your city’s Pilgrim’s Bounty vendors. The wild turkey can easily be farmed in Elwynn Forest (Alliance) and/or Tirisfal Glades (Horde). The wild turkeys drop from wild turkeys and lonely turkeys respectively. Let me point at that you do not have to be Alliance to farm in Elwynn Forest nor do you have to be Horde to farm in Tirisfal Glades. If you choose to farm in an area mostly occupied by the opposing faction’s players, be forewarned that you might be flagged PVP if you venture too close to that faction’s city or town.
Daily Quests for You Gobblers
There are 5 daily quests for each faction that all players can participate in. Completing these five daily quests can yield xp, silver/gold and 1 of 6 Pilgrim’s Bounty items. Here is the list of the five daily quests that can be completed during the Pilgrim’s Bounty week:
- We’re Out of Cranberry Chutney again?
- She Says Potato
- Don’t Forget the Stuffing!
- Can’t Get Enough Turkey
- Easy As Pie
Here Turkey Turkey
