For players of Vanilla WoW, a good cooking guide can make the difference between grinding in zones and being able to progress to the next level quicker. Whether you grind for gold or are grinding due to boredom, it is important to know exactly where you’re standing in terms of food supply. You’ll know the better for when you reach a certain point in the game. This is especially true if you go to a place with lots of trees or bushes. The cooking ingredients that these spots provide are always limited. If you want to get more, you need to grind more or head to the enemy’s side.
These are classic cooking guides and the newbie-friendly “vanilla” cooking guides. The “classic” WoW cooking guide will teach you all the basic recipes and locations for everything. The vanilla guide does have some advantages over the newer. The advantage of classic WoW cooking guides is the simplicity of the interface, it is intuitive and simple to follow.
If you are new to the game or leveling your cooking profession, then using a classic WoW cooking guide will help you get you off to a good start quickly. With this you won’t have to learn the ins and outs of the profession just to advance. Also this won’t take up too much time. You should have no problem reaching the level cap in a week with this method. It also has videos that show you how to make each of the recipes from scratch, even if you’ve never cooked before.
The classic version also gives the secrets to the draenei race, the Draenei can be an awesome race, like the gnomes and murlocs. The Warcraft WoW Booty Bay Stranglethorn Vale Stranglethorn has all the recipes in it. A nice little video shows you how to make all the recipes from scratch for the draenei race.
Another cooking guide for vanilla wow that will help is the WoW Nourishment Guide by Expert Boss Questing. This gives detailed information on how to farm every food type possible in the game, it also gives you which ones you should skip and the ones you should farm more. This is a great little book that will help you advance your character quickly and without spending a fortune. It also tells you which quests are worth it and which aren’t, as well as giving you that expert skill you should use for certain recipes. The recipes in this are very easy to follow.
The Old Man Heming’s Fishing Spots are very well written. The locations are described as the best fishing spots in the game. The book expert fishing the bass and your item classic world also tells you exactly where to go and what to look for while fishing. These two great books are excellent tools to have when leveling up.
If you really want to get a sense of the wilderness around level 35, then I highly recommend The Atlas of WoW Planes & Warcraft: Caverns of Ilnar. It is written by none other than Noogler himself. He is an artisan and a guide writer extraordinaire. He maps out various locations and tells you where the best fishing spots are in WoW. The rest of the book is about creating professions, making gold, the best place to grind, and how to make rare items in the auction house.
My final cooking guide would be the WoW Planes and Warcraft: Caverns of Ilnar guide by Luthien. This is also an artisan guide and is written by none other than the same expert fishing book author. Like the WoW classic, this book is full of fantastic strategies, tips, and tricks that will help you on your road to reaching level 35 as smoothly as possible. This book should definitely be on every veteran’s toon’s book shelf.
