There are different ways to learn cooking recipes. Occasionally you will encounter a vendor who will sell you a recipe, or you will get one drop from a random creature in the world for Your House Fitness. And finally, since Wrath of the Lich King, you can do Cooking daily quests and earn cooking awards, which can, in turn, be used to purchase key ingredients and powerful recipes. The new Pandaren feasts are a departure from the serving platters of the previous expansions.
There are large tables with detailed tasty meals. Cooking is a profession which will allow the players to combine various ingredients such as fish or meat into delicious food and drink items which can be consumed to restore health and mana, as well as to grant combat buffs. To cook, you will need to both find yourself a fire – and have the required ingredients, of course. Varying quantities of these items can also be bought for one Ironpaw Token.
Many innkeepers and cooking trainers have a cooking fire, a brazier, or some other tool needed for cooking around them. If you are out in the wilderness, however, you can always create your own Cooking Fire – a skill you learn when you learn Cooking. Regardless of the location though, your food will be delicious and fully capable of providing one of the Well Fed buffs, its strength depends on the level of the food you have eaten. Cooking will be split up into six specializations in Mists of Pandaria. The levelling one will level your overall cooking, and you will learn dishes that give a specific stat buff through home fitness.
It is possible to level multiple specializations for achievements, and there are also new easy ways to go from cooking in Pandaria. The first one can be earned by completing any old-world cooking quest. They are still worth collecting because once you have 100, you can purchase the Chef’s Hat, which cuts down your cooking time.Whether you are a new character or an old one just picking up Cooking, you should try to do your dailies every day.
The Epicurean is used for almost all of the Cataclysm recipes, and some of them are quite powerful and can provide essential buffs. Once you’ve purchased every recipe you possibly can start spending your Awards on either Crate of Tasty Meat, which contains some meat reagents you can sell, or on Imported Supplies, which contain a lot of Cocoa Beans, which you can then use to make Chocolate Cookies and be satisfied. In Mists of Pandaria, cooking supplies can be bought with Ironpaw Token.
