World of Warcraft Pilgrim’s Bounty event full guide

The central feature of the Pilgrim’s Bounty event is the Bountiful Tables. Unusually, these tables are also found in each Dragon Isles zone this time and the faction capital cities. Sitting at these tables provides a 10%, 1-hour reputation experience buff called The Spirit of Sharing. This is particularly potent as it stacks with the 19% reputation gains from the WoW Anniversary celebrations.
