World of Warcraft Children’s Week 2016 Gold Guide

Warcraft Gold from Children’s Week 2016

Children’s Week in 2016 is May 2nd to May 9th, 2016.


Gold with Pets from Children’s Week 2016

Do the quests in Stormwind and Orgrimmar, even if you have done them before.  The rewards from “A Warden of the Horde/Alliance” offers:

  • Curmudgeon’s Payoff reward, worth 5g only
  • Scooter the Snail worth 8-10,000g, depending on level
  • Mr Wiggles (piglet) worth 4-10,000g, depending on level
  • Whiskers the Rat, worth 9-10,000g, depending on level
  • Speedy (turtle), worth 3-8,000g, depending on level
  • Pet Care Package (can contain perky pug costumes, Magical Pet Biscuit, and Flawless Battle-Stone 4-5000g)



Choose one of each pet for each of your alts, so that you have all your bases covered.  If the prices on one pet drop, then you have the others ready to sell, and can sell the low priced one later when prices improve.  Only buy for flipping if you spot an exceptionally low priced item and you’re very confident of a buyer.


Shattrath Quests offer more pets!

  • Willy, worth 6-9,000g, depending on level
  • Peanut, worth 9-11,000g, depending on level
  • Egbert, worth 6-11,000g, depending on level
  • Legs, worth 24-30,000g, depending on level


It might look like a no-brainer to get Legs on all your alts, but check the prices in your own Auction House on your own server before you make a choice.  If you do find any pets particularly low price you could try flipping those instead.  Alternatively, you could sell Legs on another server by logging an alt on another server, and caging your pet for sale there instead.

Gold with Professions from Children’s Week 2016

The achievement ‘Bad Example’ requires you to stuff your face with sweets and cake in front of your starving orphan.

Some of the items are easily obtainable, others are going to be much rarer, and that’s where we’re going to set to work to make a shedload of gold.

You’re going to need:

  • Tigule and Foror’s Strawberry Ice Cream
  • Red Velvet Cupcake
  • Lovely Cake Slice
  • Dalaran Doughnut
  • Tasty Cupcake
  • Delicious Chocolate Cake
  • Dalaran Brownie

You can get the red velvet cupcake, dalaran donut, dalaran brownie and lovely cake from the cake vendor at the northern bank in Dalaran, and the icecream from a childrens week vendor at the banks in Stormwind and Orgrimmar.


The tasty cupcakes and delicious chocolate cake needs to be cooked by a chef with the recipes.

If you don’t have them yet, you could either work on getting them by Children’s Week, or you could find a friend or business partner to cook for you, preferably now before they get cheesed off making all the cakes that will be in demand in a few weeks. All the ingredients are found easily enough at cooking vendors or innkeepers, with two exceptions.


Gold from Farming in Children’s Week 2016

Pick up the Northern Egg from the Rocs in North Scholazar Basin, Northrend (they look like brown eagles) or from Dragonbone Condors which look like vultures and hang around bones in clusters in Dragonblight, Northrend.

Small Eggs can be farmed from low level birds in Vanilla content: Good places are Westfall, Dragonhawks in Eversong Woods,

You also need Mageroyal for delicious chocolate cake.  Farm some mageroyal with your herbalist in Hillsbrad or Darkshore.


Gold with Auction House Flipping in Children’s Week 2016


Northern Eggs usually cost 1g, but can sell for 20g or more.  Buy now, resell during Children’s Week

Small Eggs usually cost 20s, but can sell for up for 50g!

Buy these now, picking off the cheap supply on your Auction House.  Alternatively, hire a friend or guildie to farm these for you, offering him an enticing “double the current AH price”, then resell them for a profit.


Gold from Selling Packages in Children’s Week

Buy and package a bundle together of all the cakes and candy plus your tasty cupcake and delicious chocolate cake – everything you need to complete the achievement and advertise it for sale as a whole package on Trade Chat. Of course, this depends on your skills at barking in trade chat.

/2 WTS all the cakes and candy for [Bad Example] including tasty cupcake and choc cake. 250g for full package!

Why 250g? Small Eggs @ 1-10g each x 8 plus mageroyal plus milk and port (yuck?) from vendors makes delicious cake worth 10g-200g. That’s where I found my starting figure of 250g for the entire package. What price will you charge?


Gold with Services in Children’s Week 2016

You can make gold with services as a PVPer, especially if you are part of a good team.  I was luckily able to complete School of Hard Knocks achievement in the first week.

  • Capture the flag in Eye of the Storm
  • Assault a flag in Arathi Basin
  • Assault a tower in Alterac Valley
  • Return a fallen flag in Warsong Gulch

By selling services, you can charge players for temporarily joining a team of highly skilled PvPers in battlegrounds. Protect your buyer while they complete the four parts of the achievement.


Which Gold Guide for Children’s Week is right for you?

Only you know whether your strengths lie in farming, crafting, pvp, flipping or barking in trade chat. Whichever you choose, good luck and do report back how much gold you make!

    I’ve had everything done except “School of Hard Knocks” for the holiday Meta Achievement since last Children’s Week so I’m interested in paying someone to help me with it. Do you know what a good rate is so I know what to ask for?
