Here is our 1-300 cooking guide for Classic WoW. The best tips to quickly level your profession.
After doing guides for the main professions, we
had to tackle secondary ones. Today we’re cooking! This guide’s goal is to help
you cultivate your gift for rotisserie. Welcome to our dedicated Classic WoW
Cooking guide! Find out how to level cooking from 1 to 300 optimally,
minimizing chores and groceries.
In Classic WoW, Cooking is a secondary profession which allows players to combine various ingredients found by killing monsters or fishing into delicious meals and drinks. These items will restore health, mana and even grant nice buffs.This profession is often twinned with Fishing, fish being an excellent medium to increase your cooking skill. Careful however, fishing requires patience! No worries, we also have a guide to help you level your Fishing from 1 to 300.
Unlike Retail where professions are very bland, food is essential in Classic WoW, whether for leveling, dungeons, raids or even giving you an edge in PvP. Careful, like all buffs, they disappear if you die. If you’re gonna use them for PvP you’ll need to stock up. Consider yourself warned!
Cooking trainers will teach you Apprentice (1-75) and Journeyman (75-150). Regardless of which trainer you pick, the cost is the same.
Once you’ve learned Cuisine from a cooking trainer, you can start cooking some delicious meals !
You get some recipes at level 1. Beware: aside from gathering the needed ingredients you will need a fire to cook your food. You can use the fire next to cooking trainers or build one yourself.Learning cooking will indeed immediately teach you how to build a Feu de camp basique, allowing you to transform your ingredients a meal. To create a cookfire you need Silex et amadou and Bois simple that you can buy from general goods vendors. We recommend leveling about 30 points with the same recipe. Don’t spend money to buy the ingredients and use the fires already present in the game.
Like all professions, there are many ways to reach the maximum level in the cooking. You can use items that you find by looting corpses, freshly caught fish or, if you have sufficient funds, buy components from the Auction House. All these ways work, there's no better way. All depends on you, if you have the patience for fishing, if you'd rather go genocide for meat.
You will regularly find meat in Classic WoW while leveling, farming reputation or in dungeons. Inventory space being very limited, here is a list of ingredients you will want to keep or buy at the Auction House to level Cooking to 300 with meat.
