Cooking Guide 1 450 WotLK 3.3.5a

Welcome to Warcraft Tavern’s Cooking guide! In this guide, we’ll provide everything you need to max out your Cooking skill, from the materials required to level up your profession to the best recipes to follow.

Cooking provides necessary utility and power for all characters, as max-level food buffs those who eat long enough with a broad range of stat enhancements, depending on the recipe used to prepare the meal.

Beasts drop an assortment of meat, eggs, and clams, which you will combine with seasoning or other material purchased from vendors to make most cooking items.

Fishing can also lend a strong hand to the cooking profession, as each catch can be fried up for a chance to increase your skill. Consider leveling fishing alongside your cooking skill for added synergy!

Required Materials

Below you can find the materials you’ll need to level from 1-450, as well as a few tips and things to keep in mind.

  • Sometimes we will have to craft yellow recipes that don’t guarantee a level up on every craft, therefore the materials required are estimates, rather than exact figures.
  • Specific recipes will require items you have previously crafted, so check the lists before getting rid of crafts!
  • Some recipes aren’t taught by trainers, but instead are acquired from drops or vendors.

All of these things are accounted for in the materials listed below. Listed separately from the material list are those recipes not acquired from a trainer, but rather from a vendor or world drop.

Cooking Trainers

You can click on a Trainer’s name from the lists below to see its exact location. If you use TomTom, you can copy-paste the location and coordinates provided (after the name) to track down the trainer you need more easily. For example:

/way Orgrimmar 75.8 24.6

  • Baxter, Hellfire Peninsula (56.8 37.4)

wow classic alliance leveling guide Alliance

  • Gaston, Hellfire Peninsula (54.0 63.6)

Training Route

Certain crafts need to be used later to further level up the profession. Other times, the materials can be bought from a vendor instead of the Auction House, or the crafting recipe is not acquired from a trainer. Some recipes turn yellow and as such do not have a 100% chance to level up your profession with every craft; this means some randomness enters the equation when it comes to materials. We indicate all of these situations with the following icons:

buy 2
Buy material from the vendor.

Craft amount depends on variance.

You should have mentioned, that to get, Smoked Desert Dumplings- Sandworm Meat, you have to complete a quest chain first. https://classic.wowhead.com/quest=8307/desert-recipe https://classic.wowhead.com/quest=8313/sharing-the-knowledge

I found that in patch 3.3.5a to learn Kungaloosh, you need to go down into The Underbelly in Dalaran and find Washed-Up Mage and talk to them to learn it. Not sure if there’s Amy prerequisite quests for it or not but I did do the quests stated above for it though so that may be it. Hope this helps everyone else 🙂

You have to complete that chain, but the chain in Sholazar gives you Kungaloosh as a reward. To get the cooking recipe you have to talk to the mage in Dalaran.

Allerian Stronghold is not in Nagrand. It’s in Terokkar Forest. Just want to make sure that’s cleared up. I basically discovered the entirety of Nagrand looking for it to find out myself.

Did the quests as stated above to learn Kungaloosh but it did not teach it to me after I completed The Taste Test and my cooking is at 384 when I did said quest.
