Cookie Clicker ClassicEditThe Elder Pledge is the end-game item of Cookie Clicker Classic. Its purpose is to remove the grandma background from haunting you, although this can be done for free by turning Flashing off as well, until you open cookie clicker again, since options are not saved.
Since the most recent update, the Elder Pledge increases in cost by a multiplier of 1.1, no longer remaining fixed at 666,666 Cookies. For example, the first use costs 666,666 Cookies, the second costs 733,333 Cookies, and so on. When the game is reset, the cost also resets to 666,666 Cookies.
The Elder Pledge buffs Cursors to give 1.5x the number of cookies as you have Cursors per 5 seconds. Grandmas are also buffed by +0.5 Cookies/5 seconds for each Portal owned. This stacks with other upgrades to Grandmas. However, both of these effects wear off after about 13 minutes and 30 seconds.
Using The Elder Pledge has no direct cookie payout.
Contains the wrath of the elders, at least for a while.
- Before an update, it (initially) costs 666,666, demonstrating that the Cookie gods and their grandmas come from hell and wish to haunt you.
- The name implies that you may be making some sort of dark, satanic pact to temporarily rid yourself of "the ancients' wrath", which may suggest that your cookies are more than just cookies, but are also spawned through much darker means.
- If you purchase the Elder Pledge without first purchasing a cursor, you will not be able to make cookies using the standard clicking method.
- If you have the same amount of cursors, grandmas and portals, it would take about 91 of them for the buff you get from them by purchasing the Elder Pledge to pay off the first time.
