Home WotLK Classic Professions WotLK Classic Cooking Guide

Universal, necessary, unique. This is how you can describe one of the three secondary professions in WoW – Cooking, which provides you with several recipes to help you get powerful buffs that you can use in PvE or PvP. And, of course, help your party members restore health and mana. In our WotLK Cooking guide, you can learn all you need to know about Cooking pros and cons, materials, trainers, and leveling.

WotLK Cooking Bonuses and Benefits

Cookers will be welcome in any raid because they are able to create food and drink for the whole group in Wrath Classic, which is able to quickly heal and give unique buffs to anyone. At higher levels, you will be able to be even more useful in PvE or PvP, because you will get an opportunity to create large meals called feasts, such as the Fish Feast, to feed up to 25 people. That’s why Cooking is a must-have skill for many players because it’s universal and suitable for all classes.

WotLK Classic Cooking Guide

WotLK Cooking is a good way to gold making too because some dishes are worth a lot of money at the Auction House.  For example, Dragonfin Filet or Spiced Mammoth Treats.

Also, WotLK Cooking can be BiS choice for any class because it’s a secondary profession with solid benefits for everyone. It will be useful at all stages of your leveling. Also, the profession is well-paired with Fishing, and you can read more about it in our WotLK Classic Fishing guide.

WotLK Classic Cooking Trainers

Cooking is a universal profession in WoW Classic, so finding Cooking trainers will not be difficult. In most cases, you will be able to do this in any capital. Just find the guards in the city you are in and ask them. After that, your trainer will be marked with a red mark on the map, so just follow it.
