Gold Making: Children's Week

Recommended Posts

20413-gold-making-childrens-week.jpg

As there are no new trade-able items for this years event it is business as usual for Children's Week.  Time to get cooking and grab those battle pet quest rewards!

Introduction



The intention of this guide is to help you earn gold both during and after the event.  If you would like a comprehensive guide on the event itself and the associated items and achievements then check out our full guide HERE.

 

2016: First and foremost my apologies for not having the guide available for the event launch!  Sadly real life got in the way this weekend so it's a little late!  As far as I can tell there are no new additions for 2016 (other than the Bind on Pickup inv_misc_throwingball_01.jpgYellow Balloon) so let's get stuck in and make some gold!

 

Children's Week doesn't tend to offer a great number of different ways of making gold.  The majority of the opportunities are through both cooking and battle pets.  

 

Important things to note:

 

  • The event only lasts for one week
  • Being able to travel around the World easily will help save a lot of time if you wish to complete the pet quest chains

 

Cooking

 

In previous years I have managed to make a lot of money through cooking items that are linked with the Children's Week achievement inv_misc_food_31.jpgBad Example.

 

If you have managed to farm / buy some cheap inv_egg_01.jpgSmall Egg and inv_egg_01.jpgNorthern Egg over the past few weeks you should be able to turn a fairly hefty profit.

 

There are two cooking recipes that you can make, these are:

 

 

Tasty Cupcakes

inv_misc_celebrationcake_01.jpgDelicious Chocolate Cake:

 

8x inv_misc_food_wheat_01.jpgSimple Flour 4x inv_drink_milk_01.jpgIce Cold Milk  4x inv_misc_food_wheat_02.jpgMild Spices 1x inv_potion_12.jpgFlask of Stormwind Tawny 3x inv_jewelry_talisman_03.jpgMageroyal 8x inv_egg_01.jpgSmall Egg

 

Chances are there will be a lot of competition on the auction house with these items.  Depending on the number of eggs you have bought or farmed it may be worth selling the raw eggs themselves as well as the cooked food.  The chocolate cake recipe is pretty rare as well don't worry if you can't make the cake yourself.  Sell the raw mats or try and find a guild member / friend who isn't interested in making gold and have them craft them up for you!

 

It is possible to sell some of the vendor bought items such as the inv_misc_food_153_doughnut.jpgDalaran Doughnut and the inv_misc_food_145_cake.jpgLovely Cake.  Players are notoriously lazy - so make it convenient for them by buying a few stacks and putting them onto the auction house.  you will be amazed at the prices you can charge!

 

If possible with all of these items don;t try and flood the auction house.  Try and sell a few at a time and only list them for 12 hours.  Small and often is the best course of action here.  They will probably get undercut quite quickly so check when you can and ensure yours are the cheapest on the auction house when you can!

 

*Hint* I list my eggs on a character that I rarely use for auctions and check frequently with the remote auction house (via the WoW mobile app).  A bit overkill for some but can get you sales if you aren't able to login at your desktop!

 

 

Battle Pets

 

Of the 10 available pets from the event, 8 are trade-able.

 

As outlined in our full event guide, there are 3 quest chains.  The rewards from Stormwind/Orgrimmar/Outland quests you can sell and the pets from the Northrend questline are not trade-able.

 

It goes without saying that the more characters that you can complete the quest chains will 

The price for each pet will vary depending on your server population.

 

I highly recommend utilising the website www.wow-pets.com before you complete your quest chain to give you some indication as to which pet is more valuable on your particular server.

 

If you are on EU servers click here to find your realm.

 

For US servers click here to find your realm.

 

From the above links you can then search for the pet prices for all of the Children's Week pets to see which is potentially the most profitable.  Make sure you filter the results by "Source" to get a quick snapshot of all World Event: Children's Week pets.

 

As an example, the below picture shows the prices of the pets before the event.  The left hand column (bold text) is for level 1 pets the right hand column (faded) is for level 25.

Remember, the prices will drop during the event itself so don't get too discouraged if they seem a little low if you are searching during the event.

 

The information below helps to explain how I level and sell my pets.  It is not specifically for the event or for the event pets themselves but more of a general explanation of how I try and get the most money for the pets that I trade.

 

Typically the Children's Week pets sell pretty well throughout the year so I recommend having a little read if it is something that interests you.

 

If you aren't very interested in pets (I appreciate not everyone is) then treat it as you would any other seasonal item and try and wait until the event has ended to sell your pets.  They definitely will sell at green and level 1 at the right price!

 

If you do want to learn a little more about selling pets read on! If not skip to the "PvP" section!

 

 

Selling Battle Pets

 

As the event deals with a lot of battle pets (and is the main source of income for this event) I wanted to try and go into a little detail about pets and pet selling.  I will be completing a comprehensive pet guide in the very near future which will also have some of my own personal TSM profiles included!  In the meantime this should give you a little bit of information on how to maximise your gold with the pets you can acquire during Children's Week!

 

 

Uncommon or Rare? Level 1 or 25?

 

 

One of the most frequent questions that I am asked is at what level / quality I sell my pets.  There is a market for pets of all levels and quality, however you are most likely to see pets at uncommon (green) level 1 or rare (blue) 25.

 

At this moment in time I only trade in rare quality level 25 pets.  The main reason for this is the fact I can demand a much higher price compared to selling at uncommon and level 1.  This obviously requires a little effort but as a very general rule of thumb I "add on" 5k for the leveling and upgrading process.

 

I know a number of pet sellers that deal solely in level 1 uncommon quality pets who also manage to earn a great deal of gold so it depends if you prefer high volume sales (level 1 uncommon) or premium prices (level 25 rare).

 

 

How Can I level and upgrade Quickly

 

 

Previously, upgrading your pets quality was fairly difficult and / or expensive.  However in Warlords of Draenor you can purchase an upgrade stone for 15 Pet Charms from your garrison pet menagerie vendor.  These can be obtained through completing the pet dailies in your garrison.

 

If you are new to battle pets then don't worry, it is honestly easier and quicker to get started than you may think.

 

Check out my Garrison Pet Menagerie guide here to find out more.

 

It takes me around 10 minutes to level my pets from 1-25 and as I complete the dailies regularly I have a number of pet charms at my disposal to upgrade my pets to rare quality.

 

 

Selling Pets

 

 

Pet prices can fluctuate heavily depending on your server population and region.  My "5k rule" isn't feasible on some realms (generally high pop servers) so you may have to scale down your profit or come to the conclusion that it just isn't worth your time to sell them at rare 25 (even with the power leveling methods I use).

 

Be careful when using auction house addons as some can't distinguish between levels or quality.  I have bought a great deal of bargains as players undercut green level 1 pets with their rare level 25's so don't make this mistake.  Don;t be afraid of manually listing them (especially if you only have a handful to sell).

 

If you are active on a number of servers remember that you can cage and relearn pets and re-cage them on another server,  So research which realm has the best prices and sell on that realm instead!  www.wow-pets.com allows you to compare multiple server prices at once so use that as a quick snapshot to give you an indication of prices!

Lastly, don't forget it will take quite a while for these pets to sell so if you can, hold out for higher prices in around 6-9 months time unless you are in desperate need of gold!

 

 

PvP

 

zvLZHE1.png

 

As with a number of other achievements in game right now it is possible to "sell" your skills if you are good enough.  Children's Week includes the achievement ability_hunter_beastcall02.jpgSchool of Hard Knocks, which for players that don't "do PvP" can be a horrible horrible experience.

 

If you are confident in your own abilities (or have a small group of you that can complete the achievement as a team without too much bother, I have known players to purchase boosts so they can have a trouble free achievement.  

 

Prices again will vary depending on your own server or how much you value your time, but if you are PvP orientated it may be worth while with a few barks in trade chat offering your services!

 

 

Wrap Up!

 

This concludes my seasonal event guide to Children's Week.  As you can see it is dominated by battle pets for the most part but there is still plenty of time to get your achievement_profession_chefhat.jpgChef's Hat on and get making some gold!

 

Good luck!

      It seems we're getting a whole lot of Alterac Valley soon, as Classic is getting the 1.12 version in one of the latter content releases and we're getting the special 15th Anniversary edition on live servers in Patch 8.2.5 during the event! Today at midnight CEST there's another Play with the Blues event on the 8.2.5 PTR gathering all Valley enthusiasts and all you have to do is hop on to the PTR and use the Group Finder to jump in!

      You can get the high-rez versions of the two original mounts from the event, which you can check out here as well.
      Play with the Blues (source)
      Tomorrow 12:00 AM CEST, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.
      Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.
      Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.
      Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.
      Thank you!

      The news image above is fan art created by Dogslug. You can find more of his work here.
      Blizzard mentioned multiple times that they would add Allied Races whenever they fit the story. The Horde's hottest candidates are currently the Vulpera of Vol'dun, even though their story doesn't make a whole lot of sense right now. Recent rumors suggest that Gilgoblins could be in the final pair of Horde Allied Races too.
      The Vulpera currently have too many unique animations, and they are a community-favorite. Pretty much every Horde player wants them to become playable. They're coming, and it's just a matter of when. We think the first set of Allied Races will be introduced in Patch 8.2.5 with the second one coming in Patch 8.3.5. Based on datamining, the Vulpera should be live on or before September 20th. You can find all their customization options here.

      On the other side of the spectrum, the Alliance will get Mechagnomes led by Prince Erazmin of Mechagon, but it's still not clear what the second race will be.

      Lightforged Forsaken led by Calia Menethil are a possibility based on the Before the Storm novel and Calia also received a new model in the initial Patch 8.2.5 build.
      Next up are Gilgoblins! We encounter them in zones like Vashj'ir and Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. They are a species of aquatic goblins created by Hobart Grapplehammer. Gilgoblins are very similar to traditional Goblins. They have various tattoos and fins on their arms to help them swim.

      Gilgoblins are currently not included in the game files as playable races as opposed to Mechagnomes and the Vulpera. They only exist as creatures.

      The female model has more customization options compared to the male model. Would you like to see them become playable in the future?

      We know that Blizzard wants to add more customization options to World of Warcraft, and a recent leak suggests that all Allied Races will become customization options in Patch 9.0 except for the Nightborne and the Vulpera. Let's see what the first set of Allied Races is going to be now that Patch 8.2 should hit Public Test Realms reasonably soon!
      TL;DR
      The first set of Allied Races (Mechagnomes/Vulpera) coming in Patch 8.2.5 on or before September 20th. The final set of Allied Races will include Gilgoblins and Lightforged Forsaken (based on the Before the Storm novel) in Patch 8.3.5. We know that Mechagnomes and the Vulpera are coming, but what about the second set of Allied Races?

      Frozen Arathi Basin (Resource Race)
      Put away your bathing suit, pull out your parka, and enter a winter wonderland as the Arathi Basin you know and love gets a fresh coat of ice and snow. You'll be racing your way between the farm, stables, mine, lumberyard, and blacksmith through piles of snow and over a - mostly - frozen lake. One more thing: the weather forecast calls for a bit of fog of war. We hope you're prepared for the weather.

      Today's hotfixes come with a lot of nerfs to Queen Azshara. Vitality Conduit now correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields, and more.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Queen Azshara When either Aethenel or Cyranus is slain on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty, there is now a 3-second delay before the other one gains the Torment buff. Azshara's Indomitable is now summoned 10 seconds later than previously observed on Mythic difficulty. Tidemistresses have 5% less health on Mythic difficulty. Fixed an issue where casting either Moonfire or Regrowth twice in a row while affected by Repeat Performance was not triggering the silence. Fixed a bug on Mythic difficulty where the damage effect from Deferred Sentence could trigger the healing reduction from Obey or Suffer right as the decrees transitioned between each other. Siege of Boralus  Corrected an issue where players’ pets were unable to attack the tentacles during the Viq’Goth encounter. Items
      Heart of Azeroth Vitality Conduit (Essence) correctly transfers health from a target with absorb shields on them. Learning new ranks of Conflict and Strife (Essence) should now properly grant achievements such as Power Up.

      Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1, according to Blizzard, despite the fact that in previous Seasons, it ended around the twelve-week mark.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Is this being cut off soon? Or are you leaving it on indefinitely?
      It’s been 8 weeks now, and 8.2 kicked off with 4 weeks of AK already calculated into the game, so in theory, we’ve had 12 weeks of AK at this point. AK ended around the 12-week mark in the prior seasons.
      This is an inquiry, I’m not asking that it be cut off. I think they should leave it on, but that wouldn’t fit the prior seasons.
      No to both questions. 🙂
      As things currently stand, Artifact Knowledge will continue to increase each week until the week of October 1.
