Gold Making: Brewfest

Recommended Posts

PQSSMmM.png

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!

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?"

      Cross-Realm Mythic Eternal Palace opens next week and Blizzard just announced nerfs for Lady Ashvane and Queen Azshara on Mythic difficulty to go live with it on October 22.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello!
      Earlier this week, the Mythic Hall of Fame for Azshara’s Eternal Palace reached its capacity, and guilds around the world have until the next weekly reset in each region to earn their Feat of Strength. At that time, Mythic difficulty will become available to cross-realm groups.
      Along with the closure of the Hall of Fame and the Achievement, we intend to make the following tuning changes during weekly maintenance in each region:
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Lady Ashvane Lady Ashvane’s health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty. Waterlogged periodic damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Rippling Wave damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Queen Azshara The "Stand Together!" and "Stay!" decree combination is no longer possible in Heroic difficulty. Overzealous Hulk and Tidemistress health reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Draining Azshara’s Ancient Ward now reduces its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Empowering a Ward of Power now increases its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Healer-specialization characters are now less likely to be targeted with decree combinations that include “March!” in all difficulties. Short Circuit now drains 10% less energy from the affected Ward in all difficulties. Essence of Azeroth now has an increased duration if there are fewer than 20 players in the raid in Normal and Heroic difficulties, and lasts 30 seconds (was 25) in Mythic difficulty. As always, we’ll let you know here if we decide to make any further changes.
      Thank you very much!

      Our preview of Patch 8.3 continues with a first look at racial abilities of the upcoming Allied Races.
      Mechagnome Racials
      Mechagnomes have two active abilities available at level 24. The first one allows you to summon clones to distract enemies and the second one allows you to open locked chests and doors that require Lockpicking.
      Hyper Organic Light Originator - Summon Organic Light duplicates to distract your foes. (Instant, 3 min cooldown) Skeleton Pinkie - Allows opening of locked chests and doors that require a skill level of up to 600. (1.5 min cooldown) As a Mechagnome, your limbs work as a Blacksmithing Anvil, Cooking Fire, and Mining Forge. You have a self-heal at your disposal, which heals you for a fifth of your total health whenever you fall below 20% health. The final passive racial passive gradually increases your primary stat (Int/Str/Agi) by 50 every 5 seconds, up to a maximum of 400 when fighting the same target.
      The following racial passives are available to Mechagnomes:
      Combat Analysis - You gather and analyze combat data every 5 sec, increasing your primary stat by 50, stacking up to 8 times. The data decays while out of combat. Mastercraft - You function as a personal Blacksmithing Anvil, Cooking Fire, and Mining Forge. In addition, your limbs include every profession tool. [NYI] Re-Arm - When you fall below 20% health, heal for 20% of your maximum health. This effect cannot occur more than once every 2.5 min. Languages - Common, Gnomish. Vulpera Racials
      Active abilities embrace the scavenger/camping fantasy of the Vulpera. You can set up a camp and return back on a 1-hour cooldown. Next, you have a bag of tricks, used to heal your allies or deal damage to enemies.
      Bag of Tricks - Pull your chosen trick from the bag and use it on target enemy or ally. Enemies take 14 damage, while allies are healed for 28. (Instant, 1.5 min cooldown) Rummage Your Bag - Change the contents of your Bag of Tricks. Now where did you put that...? [NYI] (5 sec cast, 5 min cooldown) Make Camp - Make a camp at this location. Can only be used outdoors. (5 sec cast) The racial creates a camp with fire, a tent and an explosive backpack at your location. You can use Return to Camp as your secondary Hearthstone on a 60-minute cooldown to return back. The camp is visible for others for five minutes and then disappears.

      Return to Camp - Return to your camp. (10 sec cast, 60 min cooldown) When used, there's a short cutscene with a caravan transporting you back to your camp starts playing.

      Passive abilities include a Fire damage reduction by 1%, 5% damage reduction when you first take an enemy hit, and you can find additional bags of goods whenever you kill a humanoid.
      The following racial passives are available to the Vulpera:
      Fire Resistance - Reduces Fire damage taken by 1%. Nose For Trouble - When you first take damage from an enemy, reduce that damage by 5% of your maximum health. Vulpera Survival Kit - You have a chance to find an additional satchel of goods when you kill a humanoid. Languages - Orcish, Vulpera. Other Patch 8.3 Content:

      Ny'alotha Allseer is a N'Zoth-themed mount added to the game in Patch 8.3. It is rewarded from a quest and could very well be the end-of-expansion reward for everyone, who defeats N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty before the next expansion, similar to Legion's Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal.

      The mount shares animations with The Hivemind.

      Here's a preview of Leather sets that will drop in Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid in Visions of N'Zoth.
      Currently, there's some clipping going on with the belt which will be hopefully fixed in future builds.

      Last week, Blizzard added Death Knight creature textures for Allied Races and the Pandaren along with encrypted sound files of Bolvar and Darion Mograine to the game. In this week's PTR build, four Death Knight Swords have been added.
      If Allied Races and the Pandaren will indeed be able to become Death Knights in Patch 8.3, it would make perfect sense to revamp the starting zone, because the current one is outdated now that Bolvar is the Lich King.
      Blizzard added four Ebon Blade swords to the game on 8.3 PTR that will likely be rewarded to new Death Knights created in Visions of N'Zoth as part of the overhauled starting experience.
