wow Gold Making: Brewfest

7 posts in this topic

It's Brewfest! Grab your tankards it's time to make some gold!

Introduction

Ah, it's that time of year again where  I finally get to visit Ironforge (I really miss the place but too many people trade in Stormwind for me to set my hearth there). This will be a pretty short and sweet as, sadly, there aren't many gold making opportunities this time round with the beer guzzlin' event.

Just a few pointers to make before we start.  The majority of players will be spending time with Legion things rather than another year of Brewfest.  This COULD mean there's a bit of gold to be made but it is mainly focused around battle pets (I can hear the audible groan already).

All I will say is don't do anything you don't want to do. If you are one of the players who is pushing gear and artifact power to get into your raid teams first week of raids and don't really want to do Brewfest, then don't.  A bit part of gold making is getting motivated and enjoying making the gold.  If it becomes a horrible grind and all you would rather be doing is World Quests then do those!  

2016

The only new addition this year is the toy Gravil Goldbraid's Famous Sausage HatGravil Goldbraid's Famous Sausage Hat.  Sadly, this is Bind on Pickup so there aren't any gold making opportunities here.

 It costs 100x Brewfest Prize TokenBrewfest Prize Token if you are interested.

2015

Last year I managed to make a considerable amount with the (then new) pet Stout AlementalStout Alemental.  I doubt that this will be as lucrative this time but it still offers the greatest gold making opportunity for the event.  All of the toys are sadly BoP so nothing we can do here.

The three pets available are:

Pint-Sized Pink PachydermPint-Sized Pink Pachyderm - 100x Brewfest Prize TokenBrewfest Prize Token

Wolpertinger's TankardWolpertinger's Tankard - 200x Brewfest Prize TokenBrewfest Prize Token

Stout AlementalStout Alemental - 200x Brewfest Prize TokenBrewfest Prize Token

The price of the Stout Alemental BEFORE the event:

As you can see there is a decent amount of gold to be made on the level 25 versions especially if you wait a few months to sell.  If the level 1's drop below 7k I would consider buying a few to resell during the year.

The other two pets just aren't worthwhile / viable right now for gold making as they have been around for too many years, so if you want to buy a pet buy the Stout Alemental.

Remember if you want to power level pets, use the Squirt technique and you can level it up in 5-10 minutes depending on your exp bonuses.  4 to 5k potential gold in 5minutes you say?! My YT video guide is here which is an updated version for Legion.  In terms of a written guide, I will be writing a new up to date Legion verison on here "soon" but the Youtube link above should have you covered until then.

Wrap Up

So yeah sadly that's pretty much it this year.  Keep doing your Legion things and if you want to Brewfest (if you haven't got all the achievements yet for example) use your left over currency on a Stout Alemental!  Good luck!

 

NOTE - Just to make you aware the new trinkets dropped from Coren are 810 ilvl however they cannot be disenchanted.  The Tremendous Tankard of Terror is STILL BoE (a level 810 1h mace) but due to artifacts is it pretty much worthless to the average player.  HOWEVER this does disenchant to a Chaos CrystalChaos Crystal so keep an eye on prices if they drop below the Chaos Crystal price you could potentially make a little bit of gold as an enchanter!

Stout Alemental. At first I thought it was a typo until I noticed the pun. Very clever, Blizzard. /slowclap

Ah brewfest.  It's too bad they don't update the world events a bit more but I will probably end up doing something during it.

Totally agree!

I was chatting about this the other day saying at least one achievement plus a toy / pet is whats needed.  Enough to get people who have played the game for years to do.  Make them BoE for players that don't want to grind it (and also make some gold :P)

I was really expecting some big changes with the new expansion, but it looks like we're sticking with just adding a new item and forgetting about the rest :(

I imagine the uptake on the new BoP toy will be extremely low as well.  Times like these being BoE benefits the entrie community as gold makers farm loads.  Not to worry enough other stuff to do :)

At the moment, I imagine people will just be standing there at the end of Winter's Veil going:

"Isn't Brewfest soon?"

      Tomb of Sargeras has a total of 9 encounters. In this early preview we're looking at different boss models and animations.
      Description
      Aegwynn used this sacred temple of Elune to lock away the defeated Sargeras' avatar. She hoped it would remain dormant, buried deep within the earth, but the lure of power has continued to draw foul entities to this site. When Gul'dan re-entered the tomb, he tore down Aegwynn's wards and opened a doorway for the Legion to invade. Now, the fel army tears at the vault, hoping to reclaim their master's power.
      The raid has four wings

      Four Tomb of Sargeras raid bosses will be tested from Thursday to Friday, February 23-24. After the testing's finished, the same bosses will remain open during the weekend on Normal difficulty.
      Game Director Ion "Watcher" Hazzikostas announced further raid testing scheduled for February 23-24.
      Testing Schedule
      All bosses will be available on Heroic difficulty.

      On Thursday and Friday, February 23-24, we will be conducting a raid test of four more Tomb of Sargeras Heroic bosses.

      Remember that Heroic difficulty scales for any group size between 10 and 30 players, so feel free to assemble and bring a group of any size within that range. 

      Thursday, February 23

      Sisters of the Moon - Heroic Tomb of Sargeras
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)

      The Desolate Host - Heroic Tomb of Sargeras

      The Fallen Avatar - Heroic Tomb of Sargeras
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)

      After testing concludes on Friday, we plan to open Normal Tomb of Sargeras over the weekend, with these same four bosses available on Normal difficulty.

      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 IFplayers 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.

      Wondering what to do before 7.2 hits? Farm plenty of Order Resources and Bloods of Sargeras! There's also gold-making potential related to Class Mounts & crafted Legendary items.
      1. Good Suramaritan -  don't forget to finish the Suramar story. It's one of the requirements to unlock account-wide Legion flying. If you haven't started questing in Suramar, you should start now to avoid delays when 7.2 launches.
      2. Accummulate at least 20,000 Order Resources so you can continue your Order Hall upgrade straight away. Note that some mount tints and Order Hall pets / vanity items require additional Order Resources to unlock so it's better to get more. The sixth tier upgrade for the Order Hall costs 20K with one hour research time and tier 7 costs 30,000 with 14 days of research time. You can turn in Blood of Sargeras for 200 Order Resources (Order Resources Cache). The shoulder enchant Boon of the Bloodhunter will help farm bloods faster as you will loot Bloodhunter's Quarry from enemies. More information about Order Hall upgrade can be found here.
      3. Paladins and Warlocks need materials to craft their mounts. Even though the crafting cost will be re-evaulated in a future build, make sure you have enough of them.
      Paladins need 50 Leystone Ores and 1 Saber's Eye. Warlocks need 10 Demonsteel Bars, 5 Pandemonite and 3 Unbending Potions. This also creates a good gold-making opportunity. Items above will have an increase in demand.
      4. Do you plan to craft Legendary items? Even though crafting requirements may change at any time during the 7.2 testing, keep a closer look at the crafting materials to have them ready.
      The items also have a gold-making potential when 7.2 arrives.
      125 Imbued Silkweave > Celumbra, the Night's Dichotomy 250 Stonehide Leather > The Sentinel's Eternal Refuge 250 Stormscale > Vigilance Perch 125 Demonsteel Bar > Rethu's Incessant Courage What's worth noting is that crafted Legendary items have become Bind on Equipped and can be sold in the Auction House, however it's still very early to say if they remain BoE. Nethershard Essence can be purchased for 2,000  Nethershards from Warmage Kath'leen.

      Slayer's Felbroken Shrieker is the Demon Hunter Class Mount added in Patch 7.2 unlocked after completing To Fel and Back quest (Felwing Ledge Scenario).
      Demon Hunters are getting a brand new Tier 20 Set appearance as they didn't exist back in the Burning Crusade. At the beginning of the video, the Demon Hunter's wearing the Normal difficulty Tier 20 Set that drops in the Tomb of Sargeras.
      No additional Demon Hunter Class Mount color variations are available as of Build 23578. Blizzard may add them in a future build, but this is just speculation, because Monks get a single Class Mount appearance too.

      About us: 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.
      At this point in time we are trying to round out our roster and eventually attempt Mythic raids once we feel comfortable with our raid composition.
      Raid Times: 8:00 PM – 12:00 AM Eastern Time – Monday/Tuesday.
      Recruitment: Currently we are only accepting Ranged DPS / Heals.
      Legion Progression:
      [EN] 7/7 Normal - 7/7 Heroic
      [ToV] 3/3 Normal - 3/3 Heroic
      [NH] 10/10 Normal - 7/10 Heroic
