Pilgrim’s Bounty is my favorite holiday in Azeroth. It’s the one holiday which allows you to take a normally tedious task – leveling a secondary skill – and get up to Grand Master levels in about an hour. It’s so good that I wait all year to level cooking on my characters until this week, because doing those first 350 points any other way is just silly.
How great is it?
- You can get any character to Cooking 350 in 1-2 hours.
- You can start at any level. That screenshot up above? That was my priest getting it at level 19 last year. It can be done all the way at level 1, if you really want!
- There’s no level limits on these quests. They’re a great way to get started on a new alt, or getting a stuck alt unstuck.
My original Guide to Powerleveling Pilgrim’s Bounty Cooking is still accurate, as far as I’m able to tell. I’ll post any updates there and here if I find them – please let me know if you find any discrepancies!
Wowhead, as always, has a great guide to the entire holiday, which runs through November 26th of this year.
Now, I have to decide which of my (many) alts are going to need to get their cooking leveled this year. :)
Good luck! May your cuisine reign supreme!
Update 11/22/2011: Slow-roasted Turkey is now staying orange well into the 400s. This appears to have gone in a hotfix yesterday. Looks like this holiday has gotten even better.
I’ll update the original guide.
