Pilgrim Bountiful!

Finally managed to obtain the title and the (Incredible, which I'll get back to later) Turkey pet! I'll try my best to do a run down of the achievements and what the event entails for readers out there who still seek specific achievements or a bit of knowledge about this event. I'll set it out in the order I did the achievements, although most of you guys may want to go in a different approach:

The Turkinator: Hunt enough Wild Turkeys quickly enough to gain Turkey Triumph.
This achievement can be a complete bitch to complete depending on how many Alliance/Horde are on your server. For me, the best way to do this was really really early in the morning (00:10 to be exact xD) and head, while in Elwynn Forest, over to the East, around the lumbermill. Being a Hunter, this achievement became easy due to track beasts, so if you can track beasts, or get hold of the food which enables tracking beasts, then now is the time to use it to it's full potential (imo) as all the beasts around the area are aggressive, and the Turkey's are the only mobs which show up as yellow instead of red dots. Happy Hunting!

Now We're Cookin': Cook up one of every Pilgrim's Bounty dish.
One of the easiest achievements gained during this event. From any of the vendors outside of the main cities (or even the Barrels which act as a vendor) you should be able to purchase a Book which contains the 5 recipes needed for this achievement. This does require cooking, however, next to the vendors should be cooking trainers, and thankfully, Blizzard has bestowed us with these 5 recipes as well as the mats needed from the vendors, which in turn can get your cooking from lvl 1-300! Each recipe will have something unique needed in each one to make, these items can be found outside the main cities, and purchased from the vendors (apart from the Wild Turkey's which you could obtain while doing the previous Achievement).

Pilgrim's Progress: Complete each of the Pilgrim's Bounty dailies.
Despite this entails the dailies of Pilgrim's Bounty, all 5 of them can actually be obtained and completed on the first day. All they require are the cooking of the dishes from the previous achievement.

"FOOD FIGHT!": Bounce food off a fellow feaster's head at a Bountiful Table.
While sitting at one of the tables, allocated outside any of the main cities, simple target someone else who is sitting at the table (or the one next to it) and spam '1' which will throw food at them depending on which seat you are sitting at. Eventually you will obtain this achievement.

Terrokar Turkey Time: Defeat Talon King Ikiss while wearing a Pilgrim's Hat and either a Pilgrim's Dress, Robe or Attire.
After doing the dailies, you get a choice of either, one piece of clothing or a Turkey Shooter, the Turkey shooters will be used later on, so save them, and you only need to use 2 pieces of the gear obtained from the dailies, so pick the hat first, then the chest piece depending on personal preference. Equip the hat and the chest piece and make your way to Sethekk Halls of Terrokar Forest in Outland with a group of people. This can be done on normal or heroic difficulty, so just grab a tank and healer and go go go. Kill the last boss with the gear equipped and presto!

Sharing is Caring: Pass one of every dish at a Bountiful Table.
Sit at one of the tables allocated outside of one of the major cities and throw the food to someone who is sitting on the table with you. Part of this will be achieved while doing "FOOD FIGHT!" but to be on the safe side, throw one piece of food to someone, then ask to switch seats. Throw some food from each of the seats and there you go, achievement ding!

Pilgrim's Paunch: Acquire the Spirit of Sharing from a complete Bountiful Table feast at every Alliance capital.
This achievement is really simple, just requires clicking 2 3 4 5 6 a couple of times depending which foods are available to you. As you are sitting down at a table, specific foods become available to eat. If you and a group of friends have passed each of the foods to each other, all of the foods shared to you, will become available to eat without having to get off your seat. All you have to do is eat each of the foods 5 times until your buff stacks to 5. When you do this, go to the next seat and repeat. After this, make your way to the next major city until all of them have been ticked. Done! ;)

Pilgrim's Peril: While wearing either a Pilgrim's Dress, Robe, or Attire, take a seat at each enemy capital's Bountiful Table.
Depending if your on a PvE or PvP server, this achievement can vary in difficulty as some people may be more aggressive than others. Whatever the case, equip the gear and make your way to each of the Enemies capitals, which in my case is Horde. Each of the tables will need to be clicked on and sat in quickly before you gain enough attention so here is a list of where the tables are, so you can click and run!
  • Orgrimmar: Outside of the main gates. Lots of Horde around this part, being that it is their main capital.
  • Thunderbluff: Underneath the main elevator, to the West side (I think) should be around 2 to 3 tables, run up the ramp and click click click!
  • Silvermoon: Again with Orgrimmar, this one is situated outside the main gates.
  • Undercity: Little bit more difficult then the others. This one requires you to run in the main entrance and turn left or right quickly, dismount and jump on, try and get out of there as best as you can, but this was the only place I died during this event.
Turkey Lurkey: Blast those dirty, sneaking Rogues with your Turkey Shooter.
This one should span, at least 3 days worth of dailies. What it requires is the use of the Turkey Shooter on each Class/Race combo of Rogues available at the moment which is; Orc, Human, Troll, Night Elf, Undead, Gnome, Blood Elf and Dwarf. Depending on the realm your on this can be a tricky achievement unless you have a few friends who can make lvl 1 alts for you to use the item on. The only times the item won't work is if you use it on a Rogue who has already been shot, this will result in a waste of your item as you can only obtain 1 per daily you complete.

All in all, the Pilgrim's Bounty achievements have been a pretty big success, with the power leveling for people of cooking from 1-300 within a couple of minutes, building us up for Winter's Veil as there is a cooking achievement required with that World Event. The title and pet combo for me has furthermore increased my title list and pet collection by even more which is always a good thing (on 110 pets now :O ). Oooh yeh! And the amazingly incredible thing that the Turkey pet does!! WOOOOTTT, if you put down a campfire, or run passed one with the pet out, he will 'realise his destiny' and jump into the campfire, thus cooking it! xD Best companion animation EVER! ;)

Hope you have enjoyed reading my walkthrough to Pilgrim's Bounty, despite it almost definitely could be better, but I don't get payed for this, so blehg!
