Dragonflight Cooking Bonuses & Benefits

Cooking is a secondary profession in which you can craft various food to restore health and mana and gain various combat-beneficial effects by combining different ingredients, such as fish and meat, into dishes and drinks that you can consume. Cooking can be combined with Fishing when, after pumping the latter, it gives you the necessary materials for Cooking.

Cooking, as well as Alchemy, will become a profession with maximum efficiency in the regional auction markets to earn gold because almost no one in-game activity cannot do without buffing food.

To cook your food, you will need a Cooking Fire. They are mostly stationary and located worldwide, but you can also create a fire with the Cooking Fire ability you get with Cooking. If you have plans to have a fun bonfire, use toys like Crystalline Campfire or Cozy Bonfire, or call for pets like Lil’ Ragnaros or Pierre.

Dragonflight Cooking Changes

Unlike most other professions, Cooking didn’t get profession specializations or a wide pool of various improvements depending on talent leveling. But at least now we have new Profession Gear, which not only gives a good bonus for the new profession stats but also saves space in your inventory.

Find out more about all the changes coming with the Dragonflight update in our detailed Dragonflight Professions guide.

Dragonflight Cooking Equipment

A significant update in Dragonflight concerns the equipment of your hero. After all, when you perform an action related to your profession, your character will visually turn into special equipment. This is what the Cooking profession looks like with a chef’s hat and a rolling pin.

Dragonflight Cooking Leveling

The process of leveling the hero in Dragonflight became a little more complicated, this is due to the Knowledge Points, which you invest and get something depending on your choice. At the initial stage you will use recipes obtained from merchants, and already in the second stage to farm Renown or use Knowledge Points to learn the necessary recipes. We’ll tell you how to do it most effectively.

Cooking Leveling 50-100

There are a variety of ways to get to 100 in Cooking, but all of them will not be fast. You might get lucky and find a recipe that you can use to level up. Each hero will have his own unique path. Don’t be afraid to mix and match and experiment with your recipes, maybe this will greet you with something unusual. 

We can recommend that you start with the Fortune Cookie recipe and the 4 Simple Fish Dishes. You can get the recipe by opening Fated Fortune Card, and the dishes are available from Fishing:
