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?"

      Mione's at it again and this time it's Trial of Valor's head lady-squid-sorceress...thing that's getting the solo Demon Hunter treatment! After the insanity of the Mythic+ clears (CoS +19, VotW +17, VotW +3 in time) it's back to raid bosses so let's take a look at Helya getting wrecked!
       
      As an added bonus here's last month's +9 in time Black Rook Hold run!

      Oi, mates! Let me just briefly introduce me and this guild. My name is Beautymen and I have been playing ever since WoTLK. During this great expansion I was heavily involved into raiding on Quel'Thalas. Ever since I left these days behind the sensation of raiding and progressing has been tickling my sensitive parts. Therefore, when Legion launched I came back to play with my mate Kraishan and we founded Mythic Busters.
       
      What is Mythic Busters?
      Our guild, Mythic Busters, is a friendly bunch of people from all around the world who are looking to get into raiding. Especially, when you have been gone from the game for some time, you might have lost your raiding mojo and find it hard to be re-introduced.
      This guild offers you the chance to start raiding again in Legion through a fun and relaxed way. No hard requirements, just fair and square play. We have several divisions within the guild to cater to different players. For instance, we run Mythic+ to gear up new players and currently we are building progress and farm runs through the newest raids.
       
      What makes raiding different with you guys?
      Good question, me. Well, if I might be so egocentric as to say that first of all: I believe we have created a great atmosphere within our guild. I, as a raid leader, try to entertain the raid group on Discord by keeping our nights social and fun.

      Sounds great. When do you raid?
      Right now we raid on Wednesdays and Sundays from 7:30PM (invites) till about 11:00PM server time. These raids are currently focused on ToS HC progression. On Fridays we also run a normal mode farm for alts/lowerer geared members.
       
      Awesome. Who are you looking for?
      We accept any and every social player who is either experienced or new to raiding. Just be a chill or dude or dudewoman! And of course, ready slash willing to learn.
       
      You sold me at dudewoman! How do I join?
      Feel free to respond underneath this post or whisper me ingame (Beautymen-QuelThalas or Beautyman#2868).
