How To Complete the Children's Week Achievements in World of Warcraft
The Children's Week is one of Blizzard's many fun holiday festivals in World of Warcraft. Completing all of the Children's Week achievements will award you with the title of either Patron (for male toons) or Matron (for female toons).
This guide should get you well on your way towards obtaining that title.
"Use your hearthstone while your orphan is with you."
This is a very easy achievement to accomplish. All you need to do, is have your orphan pet out and hearth. If you have any problems with this one then World of Warcraft possibly isn't for you.
"Complete a daily quest every day for five consecutive days with your orphan out."
This achievement sounds very easy to complete, however there are some things you might need to take into account. There is an achievement called A Simple Re-Quest that is notoriously bugged. For A Simple Re-Quest, you need to complete the same daily quest for five days in a row. Sounds simple, but it isn't. The reason why it's tough is because it was bugged in such a way that the counter would reset for various reasons.
Most of the bugs have been fixed by Blizzard, and hopefully they will be completely fixed by the time of the next Children's Week. The biggest problem that is still in the game, is that the daily counter will reset if you don't complete a daily within 24 hours of the previous one. Therefore it is best to do a daily in the morning and a daily in the afternoon to ensure that you will always be withing that 24 hour limit.
Hail To The King, Baby
"Defeat King Ymiron in Utgarde Pinnacle with your orphan out."
This is where being level 80 has it's advantages!! All you need to do is kill King Ymiron with your orphan out. Just find a group (shouldn't be hard during Children's Week) and finish him.
"Eat the sweets listed below while your orphan is watching."
The location to find all the sweets are as follows:
Tigule and Foror's Strawberry Ice Cream
Alowicious Czervik <Sweet Treats> - Orgrimmar (near the bank, horde only)
Brivelthwerp <Ice Cream Vendor> - Thousand Needles (Shimmering Flats Raceway)
Caregiver Isel <Innkeeper> - Nagrand (Telaar, Alliance only)
Matron Tikkit <Innkeeper> - Nagrand (Garadar, Horde only)
The Snack-O-Matic IV (Found in Zeppelins)
Red Velvet Cup Cake, Dalaran Doughnut, Dalaran Brownie, Lovely Cake Slice (Comes from an 18g Lovely Cake)
Aimee <Pie, Pastry & Cakes> - Dalaran (Outside northern bank)
Crafted. The recipe drops from random mobs in WOTLK. Check the auction house, there are bound to be plenty there if you can't find any friends that can make them.
Delicious Chocolate Cake
Crafted. The recipe is hard to obtain as it is a random reward for the daily cooking quests in Shattrath and Dalaran. Best bet is to keep your eye on the Auction House during the run up to Children's Week.
School of Hard Knocks
"Take your orphan into the battlegrounds and complete the feats listed below."
This is the hardest achievement of all the Children's Week Achievements. If you are lucky, there might be some premades going on your realm for the achievement.
I would recommend aiming to start tackling this achievement right from day 1 of the Children's Week. This should maximise your chance of joining up with other like-minded people, strength in numbers and team work is the key to this achievement.
Aw, Isn't It Cute?
"Obtain one of the Children's Week reward pets."
This should be the last achievement you complete, as once you hand the quest in, you lose your orphan for another year.
For the Stormwind Orphan, you will get quests that take you to the haunted lighthouse in Westfall, the Stonewrought Dam in Loch Modan, the bank in Darnassus, and lastly to the home of Jaina Proudmoore in Theramore Isle.
For the Orgrimmar Orphan, you will get quests that take you to the Undercity, the docks in Ratchet, the Mor'shan Rampart in The Barrens, and lastly to the home of Cairne Bloodhoof to get his "Hoofprint".
Hand this quest in and activate your Matron/Patron title. You've earnt it.
Good luck! I look forward to seeing everyone with the Matron/Patron title.
