World of Warcraft Celebrates Thanksgiving for the First Time
World of Warcraft will be celebrating Thanksgiving next week for the first time, calling the event, Pilgrim’s Bounty. Players can partake in the festivities by sitting at a Bountiful Table, and eating, which can gain characters bonuses. Players can also collect recipes for their own Bountiful Table by talking to NPCs.
The holiday will take place November 22nd – 28th in certain major cities and minor towns (listed below). Bountiful Tables are tables loaded with food and surrounded by chairs that allow players to eat and share food. There are five different Pilgrim’s Bounty foods, one at each chair. The chairs are labeled to make it easier to find one’s favorite food. The Sweet Potato Chair, The Turkey Chair, The Stuffing Chair, The Cranberry Chair, and The Pie Chair. Gluttony is allowed! Characters can eat as much as like they like, as the food is unlimited. Plus, if players eat five helpings of any single food, they gain Spirit of Sharing which lasts one hour and increases reputation gained by 10%.
Besides just eating and being jolly, players can embark on daily cooking quests during Pilgrim’s Bounty. The quests help chefs “master their craft” with season recipes from a Bountiful Cookbook. Players then travel between cities to feed armies with their food. The reward for these quests is a Turkey Caller, a prize that ensures that the accomplished pilgrim will never go hungry again
|Pilgrim’s Bounty Dish||Cooking Level|
|Spice Bread Stuffing||1-100|
|Candied Sweet Potatoes||220-280|
Another part of the festivities allows players to complete achievements for the reward of the Pilgrim title and a Plump Turkey Pet. Players will also be able to don Pilgrim gear and use a Turkey Shooter if they want to make their own turkey.
