WoW 1 to 375 Cooking Guide

 

 

 

 

 

ATTENTION:  Warlords of Draenor comes out November 13th and the best 90-100 WoD In-Game Leveling Guides can be obtained here!

 

1 to 300 Cooking Guide

Before I start, you need to realize this is not a 1-90 leveling guide, it's just a guide that will help you get your cooking skill up quick, if you need a leveling guide, the best one is Dugi's 1-100 leveling Guide.

Following on from my combined Fishing and Cooking guide, here's a straight 1 to 300 cooking guide using materials found on mobs.

Please note it is a LOT easier and cheaper to level your cooking whilst leveling your Fishing at the same time.

I've tried to pick the cheapest, easiest and quickest recipes to make and where possible I've tried to stick to trainer only recipes. So get your ass to a cooking trainer and pick up the apprentice cooking skill.
Once you've trained as an apprentice cook, you'll have 3 recipes to start with (along with the fire making skill), they are as follows:

Herb Baked Egg
Roasted Boar Meat
Charred Wolf Meat

So of these recipes, you'll only be wanting to use the Roasted Boar Meat or Charred Wolf Meat recipes, as they dont need any other reagents to cook.

So lets start cooking :)

Horde

Levels 1 to 40

Kill any of the following:
Mottled Boars around Orgrimmar for Chunks of Boar Meat.
Wolves and Stalkers around Mulgore for Stringy Wolf Meat.
Darkhounds around Tirisfal Glades for Stringy Wolf Meat.

You'll need about 45 Wolf Meat or about 55 Boar Meat.
Cook the Boar Meat and Stringy Wolf Meat until 40 (train on Spiced Wolf Meat at level 10 and use this to get skill ups quicker, but you'll have to buy mild spices).

At this point you really should take up Fishing as it's easier to fill the gaps, patriculary if your on the Horde side. But people have requested a cooking only guide, so let's try and stick to mob drops.

Levels 41 to 90

At level 50 train as Journeyman Cook.
Goto The Sepulcher in Silverpine Forest and buy the Smoked Bear Meat recipe from Andrew Hilbert.
Kill Grizzled Bears around Silverpine Forest for Bear Meat.
You'll need about 60.

Levels 91 to 125

Go find Grub in The Barrens. He's in a Tower by Grosh'gek Farm, just north off the road between Crossroads and Ratchet and pick up the quest for Dig Rat stew.
Kill Dig Rats until you have about 30 more than the quest needs. Complete quest and cook Dig Rat Stew till your level 125.

Levels 126 to 175

To Train as a Expert cook, goto Shadowprey Village and buy the Expert Cooking Book from Wulan.
Go to Crossroads and buy Hot Lion Chops recipe from Zargh and about 60 Hot Spices.
Kill Mountain Lions around Hillsbrad Foothills for Lion Meat.
You'll need about 60.

Levels 176 to 200

Goto Grom'gol and buy Roast Raptor recipe from Nerrist and about 30 Hot Spices.
Kill Raptors around Grom'gol for Raptor Flesh.
You'll need about 30.

Levels 201 to 225

Goto trainer and train Spider Sausage.
Kill Darkfangs around Dustwallow Marsh for White Spider Meat.
You'll need about 30.

Level 225

Goto Gadgetzan and speak to Dirge Quikcleave to obtain Artisan cooking quest - Clamlette Surprize (he's in the tavern). Whilst your there, pick up the recipe for Tender Wolf Steaks.
You'll need 12 Giant Eggs, 10 zesty Clam Meat and 20 Alterac Swiss. The Alterac Swiss is the easiest to get, just goto the Inn in Thunderbluff and buy them from the Innkepper . Get the eggs from the Owlbeasts in The Hinterlands (the drop rate is way better than the Rocs in Tanaris). For the clam meat goto Steamwheedle Port in Tanaris and kill the Turtles. They will drop Big Mouth Clams at a good rate, which contain Zesty clam Meat.
Keep killing Owlbeasts in The Hinterlands and grab another 70-80 eggs. Also kill the Wolves round here for Tender Wolf Meat.
Goto Bloodvenom Post in Felwood and buy the Monster Omelet recipe from Bale and about 140-160 Soothing Spices (this is where it gets really expensive. Take up fishing already, it's cheaper).

Levels 226 to 285

Stay in Felwood and cook those eggs for Monster Omelets and any Tender Wolf Meat you got. If you didnt have enough to get you to 285, go kill the Wolves around Felwood for Tender Wolf Meat and make Tender Wolf Steaks.

Levels 286 to 300

Goto Cenarion Hold in Silithus and speak to Calandrath for the Desert Recipe chain of quests. When you get to the third quest you'll get the recipe for Smoked Desert Dumplings.
Kill Dredge Crushers and Strikers for the Sandworm Meat (low drop rate). You'll only need about 10 more than the quest needs plus the soothing spices (about 20 in total).
Cook till 300.

Congratulations, your now a Master Cook :) BTW did I mention how much easier it would be if you actually used Fishing aswell?

Alliance

As a member of the Alliance you'll have an easier time finding reagents for the lower level recipes.

Crag Boars around Dun Morogh for Chunks of Boar Meat.

Crag and Mountain Boars around Loch Modan for Chunks of Boar Meat.
Thistle Boars around Teldrassil for Chunks of Boar Meat.

Cooking Guide 300 to 375

Horde

First you need to learn Master Cooking, so go see Baxter in the tavern in Thrallmar and buy the Master Cooking Manual.


300 to 325
Buy the recipe for Ravager Dogs from Cookie One-Eye in Thrallmar (by the stables) and then go kill Ravagers around Falcon Watch until you have about 35-40 meat.

325 to 350
Two choices here.
1). Go buy the Roasted Clefthoof recipe from Nula the Butcher in Garadar (Nagrand) and then kill Clefthooves around Nagrand for about 35-40 meat or:
2). Go buy the Warp Burger recipe from Innkeeper Grilka in Stonebreaker Hold (Terokkar Forest) and then kill Warp Stalkers/Hunters around Terokkar Forest for about 35-40 meat.

350 to 375
This part really is a problem at the moment. The best way to get to 375 at the moment is by fishing up Furious Crawdads in one of three lakes around Terokkar Forest and then cooking them. However, these lakes are only accessible if you have a flying mount.
The three lakes are:
Lake Jorune - north west of Stonebreaker Hold.
Lake Ere'Noru - south east of Allerian Stronghold.
Blackwind Lake - in the south east corner of the map, in the Skettis area.
You can buy the recipe from Rungor in Stonebreaker Hold.
You also need a 430+ fishing skill to be able to fish there.
However, you can go to Blade's Edge Mountains and find an NPC called Matron Varah (she's in the Inn) who gives you a quest to get her Raptor Ribs and Serpent Flesh. Once you complete it, she'll give you the recipe for Crunchy Serpent, which will stay green untill 375. You can now kill Scalewing's around Blade's Edge Mountains for Serpent Flesh. You will need about 60 to get to 375. Personally, I prefer the fishing, but thats just me :)


Alliance

First you need to learn Master Cooking, so go see Gaston in Honor Hold and buy the Master Cooking Manual.

300 to 325
Buy the recipe for Ravager Dogs from Sid Limbardi <Innkeeper> in Honor Hold and then go kill Ravagers around Falcon Watch until you have about 35-40 meat.

325 to 350
Two choices here.
1). Go buy the Roasted Clefthoof recipe from Uriku in Telaar (Nagrand) and then kill Clefthooves around Nagrand for about 35-40 meat or:
2). Go buy the Warp Burger recipe from Supply Officer Mills in Allerian Stronghold (Terokkar Forest) and then kill Warp Stalkers/Hunters around Terokkar Forest for about 35-40 meat.

350 to 375
This part really is a problem at the moment. The best way to get to 375 at the moment is by fishing up Furious Crawdads in one of three lakes around Terokkar Forest and then cooking them. However, these lakes are only accessible if you have a flying mount.
The three lakes are:
Lake Jorune - north west of Stonebreaker Hold.
Lake Ere'Noru - south east of Allerian Stronghold.
Blackwind Lake - in the south east corner of the map, in the Skettis area.
You can buy the recipe from Innkeeper Biribi in Allerian Stronghold.
Unfortunately, there doesnt appear to be a way for Alliance to get hold of the Crunchy Serpent recipe at the moment, so levelling up from 350 to 375 is going to be a major pain in the butt without a flying mount and a 430+ fishing skill.
