Pilgrim’s Bounty is a standalone world event, unrelated to the meta-achievement, Strange Trip. Don’t let that fool you, though: this event still has 10 achievements for players to strive for, as well as a unique title, pet, and outfit. None of the achievements are very difficult, though two of them will definitely test your patience.
Pilgrim’s Bounty is available from the 22nd of November until the 29th of November.
The event also provides an almost free method to level your Cooking from 1 to 355, making this a perfect time to get your Cooking done! The food made from the event only lasts for 7 real days, but while you have it it is a fantastic option, providing Well Fed buffs that are just a hair above the non-event options. This food also restores percentage-based health and mana, which is always fantastic for classes with massive mana pools.
Pilgrim’s Bounty Achievements
Pilgrim achievement is the big one for Pilgrim’s Bounty, requiring you to get all of the other achievements from this event first. Completing this will reward you with The Pilgrim title and a sweet little Plump Turkey!
This achievement requires you to have Cooking, as you will need to cook each of the event recipes. To learn these recipes, simply buy the Bountiful Cookbook from the Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendor located outside any capital city.
This cookbook will give you the recipes Spice Bread Stuffing, Pumpkin Pie, Candied Sweet Potato, Cranberry Chutney, and Slow Roasted Turkey. Luckily, these recipes are fantastic ways to get the early Cooking levels done, and there is both a Cooking trainer and a Cooking Fire placed right next to the relevant vendors!
This achievement also provides the perfect opportunity to finish the non-daily quest chain for the event, even if the reward isn’t amazing. If you want to do the quest chain alongside the achievement, you will want to begin in the Undercity or Stormwind.
Spice Bread Stuffing
Spice Bread Stuffing can be learned even at 1 Cooking, so start here. For this you need 1 Autumnal Herbs and 1 Spice Bread. Spice Bread can be made at 1 Cooking as well, but is taught by your trainer. Autumnal Herbs and the ingredients for Spice Bread can be bought from the same vendor that sold you the cookbook. This recipe turns yellow at 90 skill, green at 102 skill, and gray at 115 skill.
Pumpkin Pie can be learned at 100 Cooking, which is easily reached by making Spice Bread Stuffing. The ingredients for this are sold by the Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendors — Rose Standish, in the Undercity, and Wilmina Holbeck, outside of Stormwind. This recipe goes yellow at 150 skill, green at 162 skill, and gray at 175 skill.
Cranberry Chutney can be learned at 160 Cooking, which is easily reached by making Pumpkin Pie. The ingredients for this are sold by the Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendors, Dalni Tallgrass, outside of Orgrimmar, and Elizabeth Barker Winslow, outside of Ironforge. This recipe goes yellow at 210 skill, green at 222 skill, and gray at 235 skill.
Once this recipe has turned green, or gray, head over to Thunderbluff if Horde, and Stormwind if Alliance. Turn in Cranberry Chutney to receive the next part, either Candied Sweet Potatoes for Horde, or They’re Ravenous in Darnassus for Alliance.
Candied Sweet Potato
Candied Sweet Potato can be learned at 220 Cooking, which is easily reached by making Cranberry Chutney. The ingredients for this are sold by the Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendors, Laha Farplain, outside of Thunderbluff, and Ikaneba Summerset, outside of Darnassus. This recipe goes yellow at 270 skill, green at 282 skill, and gray at 295 skill.
Once this recipe has turned green, or gray, head over to Orgrimmar for Horde. If you are Alliance, you should already be in Darnassus, which is where you want to be! Turn in your current quest and grab Undersupplied in the Undercity if you’re Horde, or Candied Sweet Potatoes if you’re Alliance.
Horde players will want to head over to the Undercity, and Alliance players will want to head back to Stormwind for the final quest. Slow-roasted Turkey requires the players to make the final Pilgrim’s Bounty recipe.
Slow Roasted Turkey can be learned at 280 Cooking, which is easily reached by making Candied Sweet Potato. The main ingredient, Wild Turkey, is a bit faster than the other ingredients. You’ll have to hunt down your own Wild Turkeys, located at the entrance of the Undercity, and just outside of Stormwind. This recipe goes yellow at 330 skill, green at 342 skill, and gray at 355 skill.
If you want to continue leveling your Cooking after finishing this Achievement, check out our guide! This event gets you all the way into the Wrath of the Lich King recipes, making it quicker and easier than ever to max this profession.
Make sure to hold onto all the extra food you make! You’ll need it for the daily quests.
For this one, you will need to aggressively pass a dish to a fellow player. These dishes can be found on the tables placed outside of each capital city.
Sit in a chair — the specific chair doesn’t matter, but you will need someone else sitting at the table with you. Simply target their chair (not the player!) and spam the 1 key. This will pass your food over to them, and occasionally you will miss, bonking them on the head with the food and finishing this achievement.
This achievement will only get harder to do as the event progresses, as it will get more difficult to find tables with people actually sitting at them!
For this, you’ll need to visit all four of your faction’s capitals and gain The Spirit of Sharing buff at all of them. To get the buff, you need to take a seat at one of the Bountiful Tables located just outside the capital and eat 5 servings of each dish. You can do this alone by swapping seats, or you can truly revel in the holiday and politely ask your fellow players to pass you whatever your plate is missing!
Once you’ve eaten five Turkey Helpings, five Cranberry Helpings, five Sweet Potato Helpings, five Stuffing Helpings, and five Pie Helpings, you’ll receive a buff called The Spirit of Sharing, increasing your Reputation gained by 10% for an hour. When you get the buff, move to the next capital and repeat. This is tedious, but far from difficult.
To earn this you will need to wear either a Pilgrims Dress, Pilgrims Attire, or Pilgrims Attire, and take a seat at each enemy capital’s Bountiful Tables. To get one of these outfits, simply do any of the event’s Cooking dailies.
These dailies are Can’t Get Enough Turkey, Don’t Forget The Stuffing, Easy As Pie, She Says Potato, and We’re Out Of Cranberry Chutney Again. You only need to finish one of these to get an outfit, and they all require you to deliver 20 of one of the foods cooked for Now We’re Cookin’.
Another easy one that you’ll basically get for free alongside the other ones. Finish all the Cooking dailies for the event. This will require a total of 20 Slow Roasted Turkey, 20 Spice Bread Stuffing, 20 Pumpkin Pie, 20 Candied Sweet Potato, and 20 Cranberry Chutney. These dailies are spread between the various faction capitals, so you will need to do some traveling to finish them all!
For this, you will need another player. You need to pass one of every dish at a Bountiful Table. This is done the same way as Food Fight, except you don’t need the dish to hit the player.
Here’s an odd, but a simple one. You need to defeat Talon King Ikiss, the final boss of Sethekk Halls, while wearing a Pilgrims Hat and either a Pilgrims Dress, Pilgrims Attire, or Pilgrims Attire. At level 80 this can easily be done as a duo, but a group of 5 level-80 players will absolutely steamroll this dungeon and get you this achievement in a matter of minutes.
The Pilgrim’s outfits are rewarded by doing the event dailies located outside of your faction capitals.
Here it is, the elusive challenging event achievement. For this, you’ll need to hunt enough Wild Turkeys to get the Turkey Triumph buff. Each turkey killed gives you one stack of Turkey Tracker, lasting for 30 seconds. Killing another turkey will add a stack and refresh the timer.
These turkeys can be found scattered around Elwynn Forest and Tirisfal Glades.
Once you hit 40 stacks, you will have triumphed over the turkeys, obtaining this achievement.
Unfortunately, this is not as easy as it sounds. Turkeys are often spaced out, and there will likely be competition from other players. Be ready for a frustrating experience, and set aside some time.
There are a few tricks you can apply to make your life a bit easier at least. A macro can be used to remove a lot of the effort in targeting and killing turkeys ahead of other players. A macro with /cast [@Wild Turkey] Instant Spell can be very useful: simply add in your instant-cast spell of choice. Spells such as Moonfire, Curse of Agony, Shadow Word: Pain, and Arcane Shot are good choices.
It can also be good to not immediately kill the turkeys you find, taking a moment to deliberately plan your next steps instead: walk to your turkey, and then find your next turkey. This draws out the buff a little bit, giving you a little more room for errors and giving respawns a little bit of extra time.
Here we go with another painful achievement. For this one, you’ll need to use a Turkey Shooter on a Rogue of each possible race. This means you’ll need to find a total of 8 Rogues, all of different races, and use this item on them.
While this might not sound that difficult, remember that most servers are mono-faction at this point, and I personally can’t remember the last time I saw a Night Elf, Dwarf, or Troll Rogue wandering around. Your best bet for this achievement will be in Battlegrounds. Wintergrasp is a good place to start, but you may have to broaden your search to regular Battlegrounds.
Now that server faction restrictions have been lifted, you might also just want to have friends make Rogue alts for you to get this done.
And that’s all we have for this event, come back later for our next Event guide!
