Bust out the turkey, Pilgrim’s Bounty is here in WoW
Pilgrim’s Bounty has begun in World of Warcraft and will run through the morning of Monday, November 27. As is often the case with WoW’s in-game holidays, updates are few and far between. With small exceptions, Pilgrim’s Bounty 2017 is identical to years past — the biggest feature to take note of is the reputation buff, which does stack with the anniversary event’s.
There are a couple other changes to take note of, but first, a breakdown for any of you newcomers:
Where: All Capital cities and most Horde and Alliance TownsYou can brush up on your cooking skills* and share in the delectable offerings found on the veritable cornucopia on the communal dining tables located outside capital cities. Sharing is Caring so be sure to pass food to those who have joined you at your table. We’re sure that your table manners are impeccable, just make sure you duck if a “FOOD FIGHT” breaks out.
This is also a good time to go on a wild turkey hunt to earn The Turkinator achievement, or—transform your friends into tantalizing turkey targets should facing the fury of wild turkeys prove too daunting.
Don’t forget to dress up in your Pilgrim best and journey into Auchindoun in the Terokkar Forest to visit Talon King Ikiss (available to level 63 and up) to earn the achievement Terokkar Turkey Time.
Learn more about all that Pilgrim’s Bounty has to offer on Wowhead’s holiday guide.
*Don’t forget, you can level-up your cooking skills and throw your own Pilgrim’s Bounty event beyond Azeroth with the Official World of Warcraft Cookbook. Tasty recipes await you!
In days gone by, the biggest draw of the Pilgrim’s Bounty event was the ability to quickly and easily level up your Cooking skill. With all of the changes and streamlining done to professions in recent expansions, Pilgrim’s Bounty isn’t as useful on that front, but there are still new Cooking recipes to be learned during the event. And as mentioned above, joining in at the feast tables in faction cities and towns will also bestow players with a 10% reputation buff to help with any faction grind you might decide to undertake this week.
If it’s in your nature to dress like a goofus, Pilgrim’s Bounty gear is labeled as “cosmetic” this year, allowing you to transmog into the set for the duration of the event. This gear includes:
All toys, battle pets, and achievements remain the same as last year with no new additions — but if you’ve never participated in Pilgrim’s Bounty before, we recommend checking out Wowhead’s guide to the holiday. They’ll tell you everything you need to know about eating potatoes or whatever else it is you do during Pilgrim’s Bounty.
