PET NEWS - BY DRAGONSAFTERDARK
Tables groan beneath the weight of a variety of dishes, and boisterous conversation fills the air over many a tankard of drink. Stories of glory and thanks are traded like precious gold, as friends new and old take their seats. Every cook and kitchen within the capital cities tirelessly churn out platter upon platter of food, as the citizens of Azeroth make the pilgrimage from far and wide to celebrate the week of Pilgrim’s Bounty.

Just as you lean forward to take the first bite of your favorite dish, something warm lands on your head. As the conversation at your table quiets, a substance that looks suspiciously like candied sweet potatoes runs down and lands on your plate. When you look up at the person across from you, you’re met with mischievous eyes and a barely suppressed grin. You bare your teeth in return, and then grab a handful of cranberry chutney as you utter a cry of; “Food fight!”



It’s Pilgrim’s Bounty week on Azeroth, and it’s, ‘…a time to reflect upon one’s good fortune and share with all around you’. It’s one of the major holidays celebrated in-game, and it runs for just under seven full days.

2019: 11/25 10:00 a.m. – 12/02 09:00 a.m.

It is also a required holiday for the meta achievement: What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been.

As for pets, Pilgrim’s Bounty offers two: Bush Chicken & Plump Turkey. Below, we’ll detail how you can get these two holiday pets, and add these delicious—I mean adorable!—pets to your roster.


Bush Chicken



"Following their introduction to the mainland by the goblins, Bush Chickens have become the entre du jour for Pilgrim's Bounty due to their high deliciousness and low intelligence.

The Bush Chicken is the easiest to get of the two. This pet is cageable, so one of the ways is to purchase one off the Auction House.

The other way is to complete the dailies for Pilgrim’s Bounty:

  • Can’t Get Enough Turkey
  • Easy as Pie
  • She Says Potato
  • Don’t Forget the Stuffing!
  • We’re Out of Cranberry Chutney Again?


Each daily will require 20 of each food item.

These dailies reward an item called Pilgrim’s Bounty, and it’ll be filled with seasonal fare for the holiday. Among these items is the Frightened Bush Chicken, which will, of course, teach you the pet. Wowhead reports there’s about a 3% chance for the pet to drop.

If you’re looking to complete everything for the holiday, your best bet is to do the dailies every day, and if you don’t manage to get the drop you can purchase the pet off the AH. By the end of the holiday, the market has usually flooded with the holiday pets, so the prices should see a nice drop at that point.


Plump Turkey



He's humble, clairvoyant, and delicious with cranberry sauce.


The Plump Turkey is the more time-consuming of the two, since it’s one of the rewards for the meta achievement for the holiday: Pilgrim.



This pet is not tradeable, and is unique, therefore you can only learn one.

There are 9 sub-achievements for the meta achievement, and we’ll tell you how you can complete each one. It may seem a touch daunting, but most of them are fairly easy, so never fear!



Sharing is Caring, “FOOD FIGHT!”, & Pilgrim’s Paunch

These achievements are generally the easiest of the lot, and you can complete them as you make the rounds to all the capital cities doing your cooking dailies & quests. For Horde, this means starting in Undercity, and for Alliance it’ll be Stormwind.

However, none of the dailies send you out to the 4th capital needed by each faction: Silvermoon City & The Exodar. So, once you complete your cooking dailies & quests, head out to these capitals to finish Pilgrim’s Paunch.

Sharing is Caring & “FOOD FIGHT!” can be completed at about the same time, as long as there’s another player at the table with you. When you sit down, you’ll get a special interface bar, like when you’re in a vehicle, and it’ll give you the option to eat or share. If other food has been passed to that chair, it’ll be an option to eat that food, too.



For Sharing is Caring, all you have to do is share each dish (5) found at the table with another chair, doesn’t matter which one. Simple as that. If you’re looking to get the “FOOD FIGHT!” achievement, target a player/chair, and share the food until you get the achievement. It’s that simple! However, a player does need to be in the chair.



For Pilgrim’s Paunch, you need to eat 5 stacks of food from each chair to gain the Spirit of Sharing buff, and do this at all four of your faction's listed capitals.

If there aren’t any people around, I tend to pass all the food to one chair, and sit at that one to make getting your Spirit of Sharing quest a little easier. If there are people around, your best bet is to just sit at each chair individually.







Now We’re Cookin’ & Pilgrim’s Progress

These achievements require you to have a cooking skill of at least 280 in your Old World Recipes section to cook ALL the recipes, but fear not! This holiday is generally used by people to level their alts’ cooking skills, because each recipe you’re given will have enough points to get you to the next one.



There will be some traveling required to purchase ingredients, but the quest chain will lead you to each subsequent city. For the non-daily quests, make sure you have the quest before you cook the items. The dailies don’t have the cooking as part of the quest completion, but the non-dailies do.

Your dailies were mentioned in the Bush Chicken section above. The non-daily quests will send you to each capital city, in the order of the recipes that will progress you through your cooking skill. For Horde, you’ll start off in the Ruins of Lordaeron (Phased), and for Alliance it’ll be outside the gates of Stormwind.

Once you’ve picked up your cooking skill, or if you already have it, you’ll need to at least learn the Spice Bread recipe from the cooking trainer. After that, find a Pilgrim’s Bounty vendor, generally located near the Pilgrim’s Bounty tables outside the capital cities, and purchase a Bountiful Cookbook for 1 silver. This cookbook will contain all the recipes you need for this holiday:

  • Spice Bread Stuffing – Cooking Skill 1
  • Pumpkin Pie – Cooking Skill 100
  • Cranberry Chutney – Cooking Skill 160
  • Candied Sweet Potatoes – Cooking Skill 220
  • Slow-Roasted Turkey – Cooking Skill 280




Part One

For Spice Bread Stuffing, you’ll need the Spice Bread recipe and Autumnal Herbs. The herbs can be purchased from the Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendor.



Once you’ve learned this recipe, be sure to pick up the Spice Bread Stuffing quest. For Horde, this will come from Miles Standish (Undercity, Phased), and for the Alliance it’ll be from Gregory Tabor (Stormwind).

Now that you have the quest and you’ve learned the Spice Bread Stuffing recipe, you’ll need to make at least 30 of these for the first day, (20 for the daily & 10 for two different non-daily quests).

If your cooking skill is at 1, make as many as it’ll take for you to learn your next recipe: Pumpkin Pie (Cooking 100).

Now you can turn in your Spice Bread Stuffing quest. For the Horde, you’ll turn it in to William Mullins, and for Alliance it’ll be Jasper Moore. These NPCs will give you your next quest: Pumpkin Pie.

But don’t go anywhere yet!

You’ll need to purchase your Ripe Tirisfal Pumpkins from your Undercity bountiful vendor, and Ripe Elwynn Pumpkins from your Stormwind vendor. Honey can be bought off any of the vendors, but you might as well buy that while you’re here, too. You need 1 Pumpkin & 1 Honey for each Pumpkin Pie.



If your cooking skill is already maxed, you’ll need 25 Pumpkin Pies for the day. (20 Daily & 5 Non-Daily)

If your cooking skill is at 100, you’ll need to get to at least 160 for the next quest. If this is the case, I’d recommend sitting at the Stormwind/Undercity area, and making Pumpkin Pie until you hit 160 after you’ve picked up the Pumpkin Pie quest.

NOTE for ALLIANCE PLAYERS: If you already have your Old World cooking skill at 280+, head out to Elwynn Forest and hunt 25 Wild Turkeys now. Cook them up with the Slow-roasted Turkey recipe. It’ll save you the extra trip to Ironforge at the end.

With that done, Horde will need to head to Orgrimmar, and Alliance will head to Ironforge.


Part Two

Once you get to the next city, you’ll turn in your Pumpkin Pie quest and pick up Cranberry Chutney. Horde’s turn in will be with Francis Eaton, and Alliance it will be Edward Winslow.

You also need to make sure you pick up and turn in your Don’t Forget the Stuffing! daily while in these cities. For Horde this will come from Ondani Greatmill, and for Alliance it will be Caitrin Ironkettle.

You can pick up your Can’t Get Enough Turkey quests from these NPCs, too, but we’re not quite to the turkey yet. The exception here is the Alliance players who have already hunted & cooked their turkeys to save a trip.

Once you’ve picked up your Cranberry Chutney quest, find the Pilgrim’s Bounty vendor and purchase your Tangy Southfury/Wetlands Cranberries. You need 1 Tangy Cranberry & 1 Honey for each Chutney.



If your cooking skill is already maxed, you’ll need 30 Cranberry Chutney for the day. (20 Daily & 10 Non-Daily for two quests)

If your cooking skill is at 160, you’ll need to get it to at least 220 for the next quest. So, as before, sit at the vendor and make as many Cranberry Chutney as it takes to get to 220 after you’ve picked up the Cranberry Chutney quest.

With that completed, Horde will be heading to Thunder Bluff, and Alliance will go back to Stormwind.


Part Three

Once you’re in the next capital city, turn in your Cranberry Chutney quest. This is where the next quest somewhat diverges for the factions.

Horde

You’ll turn in your quest to Dokin Farplain, and pick up the Candied Sweet Potatoes quest. You’ll need to purchase Mulgore Sweet Potatoes, Honey, & Autumnal Herbs from the Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendor there.



If your cooking skill is maxed, you’ll need to make 25 Candied Sweet Potatoes for the day. (20 Daily & 5 Non-Daily)

If your cooking skill is at 220, you’ll need to get to 280 for the next recipe. So, as before, sit at the vendor and make as many Candied Sweet Potatoes as it takes to get to 280 after you’ve picked up the Candied Sweet Potatoes quest.

Also, don’t forget to pick up and turn in your Easy as Pie daily from the NPC Mahara Goldwheat.

From here, you’ll head to Orgrimmar.

Alliance

You’ll turn in your quest to Edward Winslow, and pick up the They’re Ravenous in Darnassus quest. This will require 5 Spiced Bread Stuffing and 5 Pumpkin Pie. You should already have these in your bags from cooking earlier.

Don’t forget to pick up and turn in your We’re Out of Cranberry Chutney Again? Daily from the NPC Ellen Moore.

Now, head to Darnassus (Phased).


Part Four

Horde

You’ll be heading to Francis Eaton once again, and turning in your Candied Sweet Potatoes quest. You’ll then pick up your quest Undersupplied in the Undercity. This will require 5 Spiced Bread Stuffing and 5 Pumpkin Pie. You should already have these in your bags from earlier, so head over to the Undercity.

Alliance

Once in Darnassus, you’ll turn in your quest in to Isaac Allerton, and pick up Candied Sweet Potatoes. You’ll need to purchase Teldrassil Sweet Potatoes, Honey, & Autumnal Herbs from the Pilgrim’s Bounty Vendor there.

If your cooking skill is maxed, you’ll need to make 25 Candied Sweet Potatoes for the day. (20 Daily & 5 Non-Daily)

If your cooking skill is at 220, you’ll need to get to 280 for the next recipe. So, as before, sit at the vendor and make as many Candied Sweet Potatoes as it takes to get to 280 after you’ve picked up the Candied Sweet Potatoes quest.

While here, don’t forget to pick up and turn in your Easy as Pie daily from the NPC Mary Allerton.

Now head back to Stormwind, again.


Part Five

Horde

Once in Undercity, there are a few things you need to do:

  • Turn In: Undersupplied in the Undercity
  • Pick Up: Slow-roasted Turkey
  • Pick Up & Turn In: We’re Out of Cranberry Chutney Again? With NPC Roberta Carter
  • Pick Up & Turn In: She Says Potato with NPC William Mullins



And now, we hunt…Turkey.

Head out into Tirisfal Glades. If you look around, you’ll see some Wild Turkeys strutting about. You can try to combine your farm of these delicious fowl with the achievement The Turkinator, but I wouldn’t recommend doing that during peak play hours.



For the cooking, you’ll just need to kill and loot 25 for today, and 20 each day after for the dailies.

Once you have your 25, and your Slow-roasted Turkey quest, cook them up. Then, head back to Orgrimmar.

Alliance

Once in Stormwind, you’ll need to:

  • Turn In: Candied Sweet Potatoes
  • Pick Up: Slow-roasted Turkey
  • Pick Up & Turn In: She Says Potato with NPC Jasper Moore



And now, we hunt…Turkey.

Head out into Elwynn Forest. If you look around, you’ll see some Wild Turkeys strutting about. You can try to combine your farm of these delicious fowl with the achievement The Turkinator, but I wouldn’t recommend doing that during peak play hours.

For the cooking, you’ll just need to kill and loot 25 for today, and 20 each day after for the dailies.

Once you have your 25, and your Slow-roasted Turkey quest, cook them up. Then, head back to Darnassus.


At this point, both of the factions should have earned the Now We’re Cookin’ achievement—grats!


Part Six

Horde

You’ll be turning your final quest in to Francis Eaton. Then, head over to Ondani Greatmill to pick up & turn in the Can’t Get Enough Turkey daily.

For Horde characters, this completes your achievement Pilgrim’s Progress—congrats! You’re free to move on to the other achievements now.


Alliance

You still have some travelling to do. Your quest Slow-roasted Turkey will be turned in to Isaac Allerton in Darnassus.

Then, you’ll need to head back over to Ironforge to pick up and turn in the Can’t Get Enough Turkey daily if you haven’t already.

Now you’ve completed your achievement Pilgrim’s Promise—congrats! You’re free to move on to the other achievements now.



And then there were four…achievements left.


Terokkar Turkey Time

For this achievement, you need to have a Pilgrim’s Hat, and either a Pilgrim’s Dress, Robe, or Attire.

These items drop from the Pilgrim’s Bounty item received from completing Pilgrim’s Bounty cooking dailies.

Once you have these items, it’s just a matter of going to Sethekk Halls and killing Talon King Ikiss while wearing the above clothing. Remember, it needs to be the hat AND the chest piece.



You need to be at least level 63 (current level scaling) to enter the dungeon on normal.

For those who are well above Outland-level dungeons, head in on heroic mode and you’ll have a chance at the Raven Lord mount. This mount only drops on heroic mode from the boss Anzu.





Pilgrim’s Peril

Once you have a Pilgrim’s Dress, Robe, or Attire, you can head to the capital cities of your opposite faction enemies, and take a seat at their tables.

These items drop from the Pilgrim’s Bounty item received from completing Pilgrim’s Bounty cooking dailies.

For Horde:

  • Darnassus (Phased)
  • The Exodar
  • Ironforge
  • Stormwind






For Alliance:

  • Orgrimmar
  • Silvermoon City
  • Thunder Bluff
  • Undercity (Phased)






All the tables will be ‘outside’ the respective cities.

For Darnassus you have to go through the city to the clear area between the Warrior’s Terrace and the Tradesman’s Terrace.

For the Exodar, you’ll need to take the portal at Rut’theran Village from the western dock.

For Undercity, it’ll be in the Ruins of Lordaeron.



Turkey Lurkey

For this, you need to blast a rogue of each race, except Pandaren and Allied Races, with your Turkey Shooter.





These items drop from the Pilgrim’s Bounty item received from completing Pilgrim’s Bounty cooking dailies. You also have the chance to receive the Silver-Plated Turkey Shooter as a toy, which will not be consumed on use like the Turkey Shooter.

DO NOT shoot a rogue who is already a turkey – it won’t count.

DO NOT shoot a rogue who is in a ‘vehicle’ type mount – it won’t count.

This achievement is obviously easier in expansions where we share a main hub, like Dalaran or Shattrath, and somewhat more difficult during expansions where we’re separate. Your best bet will still be the shared capitals.



The Turkinator

This will probably be the most difficult achievement of the lot. Not because killing turkeys is difficult, but because killing the spaced apart turkeys while everyone else is killing spaced apart turkeys can cause a person to /head desk. There were more than a few occasions where I was thwarted at 38 or 39 killed.

Essentially, you need to kill 40 Wild Turkeys within 30 seconds of each other, and achieve Turkey Triumph. For Horde this will be in Tirisfal Glades, and for the Alliance it will be in Elwynn Forest.



If you look up the achievement on Wowhead, there are plenty of scripts in the comment section you can put in Macros of your Game Menu to help out with this. The one in particular I use is this:

/tar Wild Turkey
/script if (charm == nil) or (charm < 6) then charm=9; end; charm=charm-1; if (charm==6) then SetRaidTarget("target", 0) else SetRaidTarget("target", charm); end

If you have a favorite turkey murdering macro, feel free to post it in the comments!



And that’s everything! If you’ve made it to the end and managed to get all the achievements, you should now be a proud owner of a Plump Turkey and likely a Bush Chicken. Congratulations!


From all of us at Xu-Fu’s to all the pet battling denizens of Azeroth, we’re thankful for everyone who works to make this page the best source for pet battle strategies, and we wish you a Happy Pilgrim’s Bounty!

Can the Plump Turkey be earned in a day? Or does it require multiple days worth of dailies? I've forgotten about the holiday until now as I was preoccupied with a mythic plus push week.

If you get lucky on Hat & Chest drops, or if you already have it, then yes, I imagine it could be done in a day.

The rep buff from Spirit of Sharing tends to overlap with the anniversary one, which makes it the best time of the year for the purpose of rep collection.
Yet, due to a particularly late event, a longer anniversary, and ALSO December starting from Sunday, there is one day when you can get the buff from DMF too, resulting in up to 35% of the raw bonus. 8)
