    Are you prepared?

    Well, it's just over a month away as I type this, and are you prepared for it?

    I personally have started farming for it, and plan to continue to do so on and off whenever I get the inclination.

    You may well ask, what do I need to farm? The answers are quite simple, some are drops and others are vendor items, that we can turn all into a profit

    I picked up this from Cold and his blogpost from last year, and he posted again this past week with a reminder about getting ready.

    1. Mageroyal, Cold recommends buying the stocks from the AH now, and thus exhausting the possible market. However, if your AH won't/can't supply what you want, the location for the most nodes is Hillsbrad Foothills. I found that they were so plentiful, I could quickly fill up my bags. These herbs are required in blocks of 3, as an ingredient for Delicious Chocolate Cake.

    2. Small Eggs. Just like at Christmas, these are a great source of income. If you missed out last time, depleted your stocks, or there aren't any to be had on the AH - they are easy to farm, and drop plentifully from low level mobs (Feral Dragonhawk Hatchling/Crazed Dragonhawk). Both mobs are located in Eversong Woods (just south of Silvermoon).

    3. Northern Eggs. These are the most tiresome to farm, as they are back in Sholozar Basin - but once there - it's like shucking peas from a pod. The highest spawn rate/repops are from the Goretalon Rocs. You can then cook these eggs into Tasty Cupcakes - or alternatively sell them raw.

    These are the items that can be farmed, the rest are simple vendor items that can be easily turned around into profit.

    Flask of Port
    Red Velvet Cupcake, Dalaran Brownie, Dalaran Donut visit this npc the same time as you farm the Northern Eggs seems logical.

    The Gold Queen also published a blogpost on this whole Childrens Week issue.

    I hope this post helps you, and if you've anything further to add, please do so.

    Thank you so much for this post! I'm gonna stockpile on eggs and delicious chocolate cakes, although I am going to be careful about stockpiling vendor goods though.

    Mageroyal and Cakes are where the best price extortion potential lies. Everyone thinks to stock up on eggs these days, but Mageroyal isn't as competitive of a market. This is based on playing this market every holiday season since Achievements were implemented.

    Make sure you post THE NIGHT BEFORE as the holiday begins at 2am.

    I wasn't able to get the jump on this event like I should have, but I'm going to stock up for next year certainly. I'm going to have to setup another alt guild bank though to do so.

    It's still nearly a month away. How did you miss out? Also, guilds take 4 signatures so pay people in trade to sign your charter.

    That's a very good point. I had the idea that it was in a couple of weeks for some reason.

    Keep in mind that because these are for achievements, you are only hitting a small subset of the population. This will include newer players, players who haven't done them (and want free fast flying) and the occasional alt. In addition, some of the foods require level 75, so that limits things further.

    I say this because many people found that they were horribly overstocked on eggs at Christmas (highly server-dependent). And... Christmas was different because anyone could do those quests again and therefore could use the eggs and deeprock salt.

    Personally, I will probably put together a few chocolate cakes because even after the holiday you will eventually sell them at astounding prices. The people who stand to gain the most are mages, porting people all over the place.

    Christmas was also a bust this year becasue it used to go live at 2am server, then they changed it to 8am server for christmas this past year.

    Holiday calendar is still showing 2am live time for Children's Week.

    I'm stockpiling delicious chocolate cake instead of any mats. Although I did go a bit heavy on flask of port...about 200...but back to the topic: stockpile some flask of port! Dear Morag don't sell them no more, go to Dal's sewer and buy'em!
