Battle for Azeroth is upon us, and that means it’s time to rethink your whole World of Warcraft levelling strategy. Yeah, sure, getting XP by killing monsters and such is fine enough, but what about building up the more important levels, like cooking? Players have found an easy method to build that skill – so easy, in fact, that you may want to jump on it before the next patch hits.
A starting recipe, the dessert Mon’Dazi, requires ten Wild Flour, five Foosaka, two Aromatic Fish Oil, and four Powdered Sugar. It just so happens that all those ingredients are sold by the same vendor. That’s Henrick Wyther in Tiragarde Sound and Boralus on the Alliance side, and Hanul Swiftgale in Dazar’alor and Zuldazar for the Horde.
As Redditor JordanTH notes, you can just multiply those item requirements by 200 to reach a 110 cooking skill in no time – depending on luck with drops, of course. Just make sure to pause and rank up your Mon’Dazi in the meantime once it unlocks for better progress.
You might also consider just doing 100 Mon’Dazi for your grind, and spending the rest of your time crafting 100 Kul Tiramisu, the ingredients for which are also available at those convenient vendors. Both meals are ingredients for the Bountiful Captain’s Feast, which is one of the top recipes and likely one of the reasons you’d want to do the trick in the first place.
The method’s so easy that some players are speculating it’ll be patched out. The idea is that you’re intended to get the fish oil from actual fish, and it might be dropped from vendors soon once Blizzard catches a whiff of what’s happening. That remains to be seen, but just in case, you might want to get cooking while the cooking’s good.
