WoW Cooking Guide

Recommended WoW GuideCooking in WoW is a great skill to earn, and although it’s not completely necessary, it does mesh well with several other professions, such as a fishing. You can actually earn a moderate amount of gold with your cooking skill and you don’t have to put forth a lot of effort, making it a lot fun for most players to give it a try. If you are looking to change things up, this is a skill that is more than worthwhile to learn.

In the past, most people didn’t even give this profession a second thought, but with Burning Crusade a lot more opportunities opened up that required this skill and more people are now giving it a try. You can actually make some things that other players really need, so this is a good way to get extra gold and have fun while you’re doing it.

Getting Started

Once you decide that you want to give cooking a try, you’ll need to have fire. This requires the items: Flint and Tinder as well as Simple Wood. These are of course, pretty easy to find, so you shouldn’t need to work too hard to get them. Once you have these items, you’ll need to open up your Spellbook. All players have the ability to make the Basic Campfire, so you won’t need to worry about additional training at this point.

You’ll also find your cookbook in your Spellbook. Go ahead and open it up to see which recipes you would like to try. Please keep in mind that your fire will only last for a few minutes. Since you do have to buy wood, it’s a good idea to only start a fire when you are actually ready to start cooking. Click on the appropriate ingredients that are required for each recipe and you’ll be cooking in no time at all.

You may notice that the recipes require a few other items in order to complete. Here’s a sample recipe for Crocolisk Steak. You’ll need to have one Crocolisk Meat and one set of Mild Spices. These can be purchased from a vendor, or you can go out and buy your own.

Once you have completed your apprenticeship, you’ll be ready to move forward. Items that you do not have can be purchased from a cooking trainer, so you may need to spend a little to make a little at first. However, once you advance and go through more quests, you’ll have easy access to the items that you need for your recipes.


When you start out, you won’t have a lot of what you need to make more advanced recipes. Here’s a quick way to progress in skill from 1 to 375 with very little effort. You’ll need to start in Ironforge. Here, you can purchase one flour and one mild spices to make your first recipe of Spiced Bread. This is very simple and will help you advance to 40. Once you’ve done that, you’ll need to get 30 mild spices as well as some more wood. Now, get to Auberdine and find a Moonkin. Keep killing it until you have around 20 eggs or more. This will quickly take you to skill level 60.

You can then go south to Ashenvale where you will be able to find the Crawlers which will drop clams. Pick up as many as you can and then head back to Ironforge. Cook up the eggs that you got from the Moonkin and sell them. You’ll need to then find a cooking trainer and learn more skills so that you can cook the clams you found. By now, your skill level will be up to 130. Get the expert cookbook and you will be well on your way to getting up to 375.
