Warcraft Gold from Children’s Week 2018

Children’s Week in 2018 is April 30th  to May 7th, 2018.

Gold with Pets from Children’s Week 2018

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)

TGQ’s Advice:

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.

Need a walk through for the entire quest line? Warcraftpets.com has an excellent walk through including the quickest route to get through all of the pet quests and put more money in your pocket.


Shattrath Quests offer more Children’s Week 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

TGQ’s Advice:

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 2018

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.

The easiest way to obtain the Delicious Chocolate Cake Recipe is to perform the cooking dailies in your home city (Orgrimmar/Stormwind).
The Tasty Cupcake Recipe is a drop from mobs in Northrend so any concentration of mobs can have the recipe drop. [TGQ says “how about farming for it while also hunting for the dice from the scarlet mobs at Onslaught Harbor, Icecrown]


Gold from Farming in Children’s Week 2018

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 2018

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.  Diversify your income streams.


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 2018

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.

Using TSM4 for more profit

If you are using TSM3 or 4,  adding a string will give you quick information from the AH on how much pets are going for as well as the materials needed to make the items
for the quests.

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!


Good Luck and Good Profit Hunting


About The Gold Dragon

The Gold Dragon is part of The Gold Queen’s “royal” court.  He began making gold his way in Azeroth 8+ years ago. Soon he took his menagerie of crafters and gatherers all the way to the legion HQ and beyond.  I’ve always believed in helping people if they ask and showing people that you do not have to be a Goblin Engineer to make gold in World of Warcraft. Many of the lessons I’ve learned in obtaining gold in WoW I’ve also adapted to my personal life. I have gained and spent over 8 million gold. Spending on personal items and helping my guildmates. Dancing on Azerothian mailboxes for gold tips is just a hobby.  I believe that everyone can make gold if they want to!
