Cooking is the fine art of managing food and preparing it for consumption. Everybody appreciates it, but only a few know the legitimate ways to handle this task. This type of craftsmanship has been with us since our ancestors created a catalog of what can we taste and what we need to avoid. World of Warcraft somehow seems to want to emulate the ways of the real world in their fantasy setting. In WoW, we get to see some of the Cooking skill’s intricacies in a somewhat less complicated fashion. Without further ado, let’s delve deeper into this second profession in this WOW Classic Cooking Guide.

Before you get started, make sure to store all the cooking recipes and keep all the usable loot (like meat) safe in the bank so that when the time comes, you’ll be able to prepare some of the best meals in the game. Depending on your Cooking level and the materials, you’ll get the chance to develop items that can do a lot of things besides the universal healing which is why this Secondary Profession a must-have if you want to participate in some Raids in the game.

How does this “Second Profession” help your character?

Besides the obvious healing factor from all of the meals (for health and mana), there are other ways that the rarest meals can improve your performance. For example, the “Tender Wolf Steak,” can heal for 1392 health, plus give you Stamina +12 and Spirit +12 for 15 min. Similar meals can provide different increases in stats for your character.

Due to these peculiar adjustments, Guilds in World of Warcraft tend to have a couple of members with Cooking maxed out. This, of course, gives the group mighty meals to aid them in Raids that can help tanks endure more damage, or increase the attack for the DPS (Damage Per Second) players.

On the other hand, you always have the option to sell your mighty meals in the Market. Making your Secondary Profession another tool to increase the gold income and become rich in the world of Azeroth. In other words, even if you do not practice Raiding, you can always gain a positive outcome when you max out Cooking.

Additional WoW Classic Cooking Guide Tips

  • Preparing Meals: to start earning points in this Cooking Profession, you need to be close to any fire source. To achieve this, you can either start a fire, look for a campfire, or find a chimney in any inn. If you want to start a campfire in any part of Azeroth, you’ll need both “Flint and Tinder” and “Simple Wood” in your inventory.
  • Buying Ingredients: In WoW, different recipes require multiple ingredients to complete a meal. Remember that NPCs (Non-Playable Characters), especially the General Goods Vendors, can give you some of these items for a lower price. Sadly, this option is only viable in the early stages of this Secondary Profession.
  • Questing for the Goods: Some of the tasks you’ll undertake require you to hunt and kill a specific number of monsters. Depending on the map, you’ll get the chance to acquire ingredients while leveling your character. Taking this into consideration, always keep an eye on what you’re selling to the merchants.
  • Leveling Multiple Professions: Besides everything in this cooking guide, you also have the option to increase your Fishing as well. Check both articles and seize time by practicing both Secondary Professions accordingly.
