wow Gold Making: Children's Week

1 post in this topic

20413-gold-making-childrens-week.png

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

Delicious Chocolate Cake

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!

      Darkmoon Faire, Mists of Pandaria Timewalking, several bonus events and Patch 7.2 testing on PTR await this month in WoW. 
      Blizzard published an official preview of events in the month of March. Mists of Pandaria Timewalking will be up for the first time ever. Darkmoon Faire, opening of the last LFR Wing with Gul'dan and many more details for this week can be found here.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The month of March is upon us, and the first breath of Spring is blowing across Azeroth. It smells faintly of fel, so we don’t advise breathing too deeply. There is much to see and do this month as we continue our battle against the Burning Legion. Read on to learn more.
      In-Game Events
      Nighthold Raid Finder Wing 4 Opens: March 8
      The fourth and final wing of the Nighthold raid opens in Raid Finder on March 7—get ready to  face Gul’dan within the Font of Night. Learn more about the Nighthold in our raid preview.
      Darkmoon Faire: March 5–March 11
      The Darkmoon Faire is open for business once more! Meet Silas Darkmoon and his troupe, play games that test mind and the nerve, and behold exotic sights from the four corners of Azeroth . . . and beyond!
      Timewalking: Mists of Pandaria: March 8–March 14
      While this event is active, players level 91 or higher may access a special Timewalking Dungeon Finder queue, which scales players and their items down to revisit past dungeons from the Mists of Pandaria expansion. While Timewalking, bosses will yield loot appropriate for a player’s regular level.
      Battleground Bonus Event: March 15–March 21
      While this event is active, random Battlegrounds will award Honor at an increased rate. Glory awaits on the fields of battle!
      Legion Dungeon Event: March 22–March 28
      While this event is active, the final boss of each Legion dungeon awards an extra item when defeated.
      Pet Battle Bonus Event: March 29–April 4
      While this event is active, your pets will earn experience at triple the usual rate. Get out there and battle!
      Eye on Archaeology
      Every two weeks, a new Archaeology quest in the Broken Isles is available from Archaeology trainer Dariness the Learned in Dalaran. These quests offer a wide variety of rewards, including gold, toys, and mounts—and who doesn’t want a ghost moose mount? You’ll just need to do a little digging for them.
      Obtain eight rare archaeological finds and you can earn the achievement This Side Up, which rewards a new Artifact appearance.
      Unleashed Monstrosities
      Each week, one of 11 different world bosses appears on the Broken Isles. Killing eight of these will reward the Unleashed Monstrosities achievement. Just open the Group Finder (default “I”) and search for a group within the Premade Groups (Raids – Legion); with a little time and persistence, you’re bound to slay them all.
      Did You Know?
      You can travel between major locations within Azeroth, Outland, and Draenor in many different ways. Beyond using flight paths, boats, and zeppelins, you can also use portals found in several locations. These portals become available depending on your level and the areas you’ve begun adventuring in.
      Setting your Hearthstone in a city that has access to multiple other locations via these portals will often save you travel time. Dalaran, for example, has portals available to both Alliance (Stormwind, Ironforge, Darnassus, and the Exodar) and Horde (Orgrimmar, Undercity, Thunder Bluff, and Silvermoon) capital cities as well as portals to the Vale of Eternal Blossoms in Pandaria.
      Mages also have access to portals that they can use for themselves or to open for others in their group to use. If you do manage to procure the services of one, make sure to tip generously or you may end up going somewhere unexpected.
      It’s the Little Things
      Azeroth is filled with opportunities to engage in a little whimsy. One of these is right within Thunder Totem in High Mountain. You’ll need to make sure your sound is on then head down into the Hall of Chieftains. Once there, stand near Mayla Highmountain and . . . jump.  Each time you jump, you’ll “bang” the drum that’s right beneath your feet and hear it reverberate in the hall.  Make up your own rhythm and enjoy the moment before heading back into battle.

      It's Mythic time for three days this and next week over on the PTR, as Tomb of Sargeras bosses get tested on the highest difficulty. We'll be seeing all but the final boss show up, as is tradition (as Gul'dan also wasn't tested on Mythic), so no Kil'jaeden, but the Fallen Avatar is plenty exciting and will be saved for last. There will also be some LFR action over the weekend.
      Kaivax (source)
      On Thursday, Friday, and Monday, March 2-6, we will be conducting raid testing of Tomb of Sargeras bosses on MYTHIC difficulty
      Remember that Mythic difficulty requires 20 players..
      Thursday, March 2

      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
      After testing concludes on Friday, we plan to open Raid Finder Tomb of Sargeras over the weekend.
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a PTR environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade Sr. in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 110 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested. For 7.2 raid testing, we'll be granting players all the new 7.2 artifact traits IF players have done the quest to reveal those new traits. Complete the Broken Shore intro experience in order to access this quest.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

      Converge has been around since WoW Vanilla and has been raiding together since Molten Core; most of our members have been playing together for years. In its older days, when most of us where young, we were more raid focused and demanded a lot from our members. Over the years we had to adjust our playtime and priorities with a growing list of RL responsibilities and are now, for all intents and purposes, a two day raiding guild. We had to cut our total hours spent playing WoW but we still remain just as competitive and result oriented.

      We raid twice a week, a total of 8 hours; attendance of 90% is mandatory. We require you to function at 100% from the second the raid starts all the way to its end; if you cannot commit to a raiding schedule and be online on time this is not a guild for you.
      GRepairs and flasks are provided by GBank; members pitch in mats and/or gold to help out. Guilds preparedness to raid and supply its members with enchants/etc is a team effort. If you are accepted as a member be prepared to do your part.
