Pilgrim’s Bounty (Nov 20 – Nov 26) Guide

Dailies & Events guide owners can update to Dugi Guides 5.2200+ for the in-game version

Pilgrim’s Bounty is here and it’s time to reflect on your journeys across Azeroth, share plentiful food, and exchange stories with friends. Throughout this holiday, you can partake in feasts near major towns by sitting at a bountiful table and enjoying the foods you find there.

Due to its focus on food, this holiday is especially well-known for being a quick and easy way to level up cooking. By purchasing a  Bountiful Cookbook, players gain seasonal recipes which grant easy skill-ups and delicious food such as  Pumpkin Pie.

This holiday lasts from November 20 at 4:00 AM to November 26 4:00 AM. We’ll be updating again on Sunday if anything has changed for this year’s holiday.

Table of Contents

Bountiful Tables

The main Pilgrim’s Bounty festivities take place at bountiful tables which can be found located throughout many zones in Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms. Various seasonal vendors and questgivers surround the major cities’ tables, offering special cooking ingredients and related daily quests.

Bountiful tables can be found at the following locations:

Horde Locations

  • Major cities: Orgrimmar, Silvermoon City, Thunder Bluff, Undercity
  • Minor towns: Bloodhoof Village, Brill, Falconwing Square, Hammerfall, Razor Hill, Revantusk Village, Sepulcher, Shadowprey Village, Stonard, Tarren Mill, Tranquillien

Alliance Locations

  • Major cities: Darnassus, Exodar, Ironforge, Stormwind City
  • Minor towns: Azure Watch, Chillwind Camp, Dolanaar, Goldshire, Kharanos, Westfall, Wildhammer Keep

Neutral Locations

  • Minor towns: Light’s Hope Chapel, Ruins of Thaurissan

At any of these locations, you will find that bountiful tables have been loaded with food. The tables located in major cities will be surrounded by vendors, cooking trainers, and questgivers while the ones located in minor towns will have only a hostess to greet you. You can sit and eat at any table–even those located in the opposing faction’s city/town. In fact, there’s even an achievement for doing just that!

A bountiful table features five different chairs, one for each different food that is available in that spot. Each chair is labeled for the associated food, and you will be able to eat/pass as much of it as possible for as long as you are seated. Each table features The Cranberry ChairThe Pie ChairThe Sweet Potato ChairThe Stuffing Chair, and (of course) The Turkey Chair. Unlike normal chairs, the bountiful table’s chairs function similar to vehicles and feature their own unique abilities that will replace your main action bar upon being seated.

Players will be given options to eat or pass the delicious foods provided at their seat. These abilities are necessary not only for eating to obtain the respective food’s buff (you must eat five helpings of a single food to gain its buff), but also to pass the foods required for Sharing is Caring and to accidentally “throw” the food required for  “FOOD FIGHT!”.

If you eat five helpings of each of the available foods at a bountiful table, you will gain the  The Spirit of Sharing buff which grants a 10% increase in reputation gain for an hour, and can be regained simply by visiting a table and sampling all five foods again. If seated players pass food to each other, obtaining this buff shouldn’t take long at all–so don’t forget to share!

Seasonal Items

The ingredients required for cooking the various Pilgrim’s Bounty recipes are available only from special seasonal vendors or from mobs that will not spawn outside of the season.

It’s worth noting that the recipes will count towards the various recipe-learning achievements (such as  Chef de Cuisine). If you want a guide that focuses specifically on the related recipe achievements, user Patrick3876 made an excellent one for Wowhead!

The following items can be purchased from seasonal vendors and used to cook the new recipes, and some can only be purchased in a specific zone (see item tooltips):

In addition to those ingredients, Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendors will also sell:

Upon completing the quest chain ending with  Slow-roasted Turkey (Alliance version), you will receive a  Turkey Caller. This fun little item can be used to call a Wild Turkey to your side (which can then be killed for  Wild Turkey). This is not to be confused with the non-combat pet you can obtain by completing all of the Pilgrim’s Bounty achievements and will expire when the event has ended.

There are also few seasonal items that are available as rewards from the various cooking daily quests. You will have your choice of any one reward for completing a daily quest, so you will be able to collect all of the different rewards after completing five daily quests. You will then need to complete eight more daily quests in order to get enough  Turkey Shooter to transform each different race of rogue for  Turkey Lurkey.

You will need to complete at least ten daily quests in order to obtain enough items to complete various achievements (a Pilgrim Hat, your choice of chestpiece, and the 8  Turkey Shooter). The following items are awarded from the Pilgrim’s Bounty daily quests:

Seasonal Recipes

With the main focus of the Pilgrim’s Bounty event being food, you had better believe there’s new  Cooking recipes! Seasonal recipes have been added and players can purchase a  Bountiful Cookbook (Alliance version) containing all five of their faction’s recipes for a mere 1 from any Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendor!

It is worth mentioning that learning and cooking these seasonal recipes provides one of the easiest and fastest methods of leveling cooking fromat least 1 – 300 skill using only seasonal, vendor-purchased ingredients, so if your character has no cooking skill now is the perfect time to start!

Horde Recipes

Alliance Recipes

New Pilgrim’s Bounty vendors have been added that sell most of the reagents required for cooking these recipes. Certain specific ingredients can only be purchased at their respective cities, for example  Mulgore Sweet Potato can only be purchased in Mulgore, nearThunder Bluff. The only item you will have to go out and farm for is the  Wild Turkey, which will require traveling out to either Tirisfal Glades or Elwynn Forest and killing Wild Turkey. Thankfully, the  Wild Turkey is a 100% drop and these critters don’t put up much of a fight.

It is also worth mentioning that one of the recipes ( Spice Bread Stuffing /  Spice Bread Stuffing) requires  Spice Bread, which is created by another cooking recipe unrelated to the holiday. This recipe,  Spice Bread, can be trained from pretty much any Cooking Trainer and requires only 1 point in  Cooking skill, making it a great leveling recipe as well.

Quests

Pilgrim’s Bounty features a number of new cooking-oriented quests, most of which have daily quest versions as well.

You will need at least 330  Cooking skill in order to be able to cook all of the new seasonal recipes, though the recipes have varying skill levels so if you are not interested in completing everything there will definitely be a recipe you will be able to cook for at least one daily quest, provided you have any Cooking skill at all.

The recipes required for these quests can be learned from a Pilgrim’s Bounty Cooking Trainer located near the major cities’ Bountiful Tables.

Horde Quests

  •  Pilgrim’s Bounty

    Start: Commoners located inside major cities.

    End: Miles Standish

    This is simply a breadcrumb quest that leads you to out to the Pilgrim’s Bounty celebrations in Undercity‘s courtyard, the Ruins of Lordaeron, and is not necessary to be completed in order to obtain the other quests. Simply head out that way and talk to Miles Standish to complete.

  •  Sharing a Bountiful Feast

    Start & End: Bountiful Feast Hostess

    To complete this quest, simply head out to one of the bountiful tables (see the locations above) and sample five helpings of each of the five available foods. Doing so will grant you the  The Spirit of Sharing buff required for this quest.

Cooking Quests

Daily Quests

Each of the cooking daily quests are fairly straightforward – simply get the required food, and bring it to the designated person – so they shouldn’t need extremely detailed descriptions. A book containing all of the new recipes can be purchased from a Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendor located near the major cities’ Bountiful Tables. Please refer to the recipes section above for detailed ingredients.

Alliance Quests

  •  Pilgrim’s Bounty

    Start: Commoners, probably.

    End: Gregory Tabor

    This is simply a breadcrumb quest that leads you to out to the Pilgrim’s Bounty celebrations at the gates of Stormwind City, and is not necessary to be completed in order to obtain the other quests. Simply head out that way and talk to Gregory Tabor to complete.

  •  Sharing a Bountiful Feast

    Start & End: Bountiful Feast Hostess

    To complete this quest, simply head out to one of the Bountiful Tables (see the locations above) and sample five samples of each of the five available foods. Doing so will grant you the  The Spirit of Sharing buff required for this quest.

Achievements

Pilgrim’s Bounty features nine unique achievements that can be earned! While it is definitely worth noting that the  Pilgrim meta-achievement isnot required for  What A Long, Strange Trip It’s Been, this achievement awards not only a new player title but a non-combat pet as well!

That’s right, complete all of the Pilgrim’s Bounty achievements and your character will gain the title ‘the Pilgrim’ and receive a  Plump Turkeypet! Unlike that bony little brat from Day of the Dead, this is a permanent pet.

    Updated through the Dugi updater to get this guide and now wow is saying the guide is incompatable and will not load. I noticed that wow is showing that the version i have loaded is 5.2201 rather than 5.2200. I tried doing a manual instal but still shows as incompatable. What is the fix for this?

    double check your waypoints for Pilgrim’s Peril (horde) – One for ironforge is telling me to go to Deadeye Shore, right outside of Org….the one for Darnassus is telling me to go to Thunderbluff….lol

    @Penny,

    Yes this guide has some major errors. To begin with, I am playing horde and it is telling me to go to Stromwind for the Plenty of Bounty quest which I could have done in the Undercity. I wasted about time by flying down to Stormwind and then back to Undercity. I am at the same point as Penny. The guide is telling me to go to Org instead of Ironforge.

    I would figure since this guide was a day late, I would have thought that guide would be perfect. Now we have six days to complete the achievement instead of seven.

    I am big fan of your guide Dugi, but please double check the guide before posting them.

    @Mynameisjonas, we can only begin creating the guide when the event is live, so in our view the guide is on time.

    However I am sorry for the error, it should be fixed now.

    Thanks Dugi!

    One request though, could these guides be made available on the day that the event starts? I myself am located in the EU and event started yesterday. Same issue with previous events.

    @Martijn, unfortunately that is not possible, because of the Cataclysm changes we can only update the guides when the event start.
