Good morning Freakz!
Felsong has been successfully moved onto the new & more powerful server!
You can already log back in, and it will be a lot more stable when 5k+ people are online.
We’ll monitor its state closely to ensure this machine switch didn’t have any unwanted consequences!

Felsong is now updated to the patch 7.3.5!

As usual with an update of this magnitude, the realm will surely encounter some random bugs, and might not be fully stable: rest assured that we’re all working on it, to bring the best out of this release!

Thank you for your support and understanding.

After a few weeks of open PTR, where you discovered the 7.3.5 patch in preview and gave us valuable feedback it is now time to release the patch on Felsong !

The Shadows of Argus patch will hit our Legion live realm on Monday, March 23rd morning ! The realm Felsong will be shut down at midnight (Monday morning) to give us time to apply the update, and it should be back up before noon.

As the client version changes, you will be required to update your client in order to play once Felsong goes to 7.3.5! Here is a guide on how to do it easily

Speaking of the update, in case you didn’t catch up on what would be added, here is a list of every new feature you will be able to enjoy on 7.3.5:

– 4 new allied races : Void Elf & Lightforged Draenei for the Alliance, Nightborne & Highmountain Tauren for the Horde! Each of them has their own requirement and questline , in order to unlock them.

– All 3 Argus zones (Krokuun, Antoran Wastes & Mac’Aree) are fully scripted: questline, world quests, treasures, invasion points and others! Completing the Argus storyline for the first time will grant access to the Netherlight Crucible to every character on the account, giving your artifact even more power! It will be located in the Vindicaar ship .

– First Wing of Antorus raid in LFR, Normal & Heroic difficulties (and Mythic after a while), which contains the bosses: Garothi Worldbreaker, F’harg & Shatug the Felhounds of Sargeras, and Antoran High Command
Note: Unlike previous raids, we intend on releasing Antorus wing by wing and not boss by boss, without losing in quality thanks to our bigger developer team!

– Argus’ dungeon, Seat of the Triumvirate will be fully available in Heroic, Mythic & Mythic+

– All dungeon rewards will see their ilvl increase to reflect on this patch increased ilvl. A NPC will also be available, whom you can trade Veiled Argunite with in order to catch up in ilvl.

– You will be able to upgrade your Legendary Items to ilvl 1000 by gathering Wakening Essences and talk to Arcanomancer Vridiel in Dalaran. PLEASE NOTE that all the chests that can contain those essences will be wiped from all inventories in order to prevent people from stacking them in advance (mainly Paragon, Emissary chests & PVP strongboxes, so open them before!)

– The new zone scaling will also be added: quests & mobs level will adapt more broadly to match yours, allowing you to level up more freely. Since this is a pretty big change, it can potentially induce a few issues on low level zones, but we’ll monitor them closely to ensure leveling stays smooth.

– Updated PVE System : The AI of NPCs as a whole has been upgraded: All dungeons have been rechecked for 7.3.5 scaling & their general behavior has been improved!

– Updated classes : new talents, item sets, 7.3.5 specific hotfixes, pvp mods & balancing have been checked and scripted! PTR also brought us hundreds of spell fixes

– New PVP Season: Fierce Gladiator! Defend your title, or prove yourself worthy of the gladiator rank! Rewards will be updated for this 5th Season.

– The Shop will also be updated on the day of the release, with the addition of Antorus gear! You will be able to freely upgrade any item you bought before to 985 ilvl, and Legendary items to 1000 ilvl!

Those weeks of open PTR made us confident that the release will be great, so dont be afraid! We will be monitoring it closely: many systems got changed, updated or even rescripted, and the Freakz dev team will stay primed and ready to tackle any issue you may find!
We hope you are as hyped as we are! You’ve played on 7.2 for a while, now its time for you to enjoy some new content!

Expansion

An expansion is additional software (usually made available for retail sale) that adds new content and features to a game.

The content of an expansion is usually not available to anyone who does not own the expansion. Most expansions will not install or run as stand-alone products.

For example, the Frozen Throne expansion for Warcraft III added new campaigns, units, maps, and other content to the game.

Timeframe

It was stated in an interview prior to the first expansion, that concepts for that expansion had been made, and that Blizzard already had enough ideas for 5-6 more. As of 2013, four have been released and a fifth announced.

Blizzard tend to plan expansions far in advance of the current content; in February 2014 (prior to the Warlords of Draenor alpha) the team had already begun planning the next two expansions. [1]

Following the release of World of Warcraft’s first expansion in 2007, Blizzard announced plans to release expansions once per year. However, this rate of production was never delivered, with subsequent expansions arriving roughly every 2 years.

Activision Blizzard CFO Thomas Tippl stated at the Citi 2011 Technology Conference that 6 expansions for its most popular titles are planned by 2014, of which 2 of them are to be for World of Warcraft following Cataclysm. [2]

Process

The process of brainstorming a new expansion generally happens 2 expansions ahead which allows for story plot point-making. Typically this happens with a large group and weekly sessions where the developers think of cool things, throw away others. It’s a mix of things. They generally think about The World – the world is the main character that you explore and fill with your own story. The first question is “Where do we want to go next?” The story sometimes has to twist and turn to get there EX: Warlords of Draenor. Then they can add features that make sense alongside that world. [3]

Karazhan

This article is about the history and lore of Karazhan. For the level 70 10-player raid instance, see Karazhan (raid). For the level 110 5-player dungeon, see Return to Karazhan. For other appearances, see Karazhan (disambiguation).

Karazhan

Prince Malchezaar

Medivh
Aegwynn

Southern Deadwind Pass [54, 78]

Karazhan (a.k.a. Medivh’s Tower) [1] is an abandoned citadel (or castle) [2] located on a nexus of ley lines [3] in southern Deadwind Pass. The tower is best known for its last known occupant — Medivh, the last Guardian of Tirisfal. After Medivh was killed by Khadgar, Anduin Lothar, and Garona, the tower sealed itself off from the rest of the world. But recently, Karazhan has reawakened — an evil presence has taken the tower as its own, its halls crawling with spirits and demons, and Medivh’s presence is still alive and well, even decades after his death.

Karazhan, as a level 70 ten-man raid instance, was opened in World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. The instance is huge, scripted, and non-winged, containing twelve boss encounters, with 22 different NPCs.

History

The Last Guardian

The land which the tower sits on “was similar in shape to a human skull. Many had noted it over the years, though only a few had been sufficiently brave, or powerful, or tactless to mention it to the property’s owner”. [4]

Karazhan’s history begins with an explosion that carved out Deadwind Pass and weakened the fabric of reality in the region, [5] which was caused by Sataiel draining the land of life with Ulthalesh, the Deadwind Harvester. [6] The tower was built in secret by the Guardian Aegwynn using Aluneth [7] around 600 years before the First War, after she grew increasingly paranoid and hostile to her fellow members in the Council of Tirisfal — a result of the dark influence that the spirit of Sargeras was exerting over her. The tower acted both as a refuge from the council and as a conduit for the potent ley lines in the region, through which Aegwynn could siphon power as needed. [8] Aegwynn’s son Medivh eventually took up residence in Karazhan, but mused that the explosion and the construction only happened because he would eventually arrive. [9]

As the structure was built atop a nexus of potent ley lines, the energies that coursed through Karazhan sometimes warped reality in the region. Because of that, the mage Arrexis came to Deadwind Pass to study the tower and its powers, experimenting with their warding magics outside Karazhan, attempting to neutralize the tower’s strange powers. [10]

During the First War, the tower was inhabited by Medivh, his steward Moroes, his cook named Cook, and his then-apprentice Khadgar. Though Medivh was the greatest wizard of his day (and humanity’s intended custodian) Medivh was secretly possessed by the dark spirit of Sargeras, the Destroyer of Worlds. Through Medivh, Sargeras opened the Dark Portal and allowed the orcs to wage war upon the kingdoms of Azeroth. Garona Halforcen also resided here as an emissary at the same time as Khadgar’s apprenticeship. Sargeras allowed Medivh to freely explore Karazhan. As a result of the region’s weakened reality, many strange and disturbing visions lurked within the tower, and Moroes was known for wearing blinders to avoid seeing them. The visions were ultimately ended when most of Karazhan’s ambient magical power was absorbed by the resurrected Medivh, reducing it to “a pile of stone in the remote reaches”, its power taken to serve the Prophet. [11]

As the war progressed, Medivh fought against Sargeras’ control. The raging conflict within him finally drove the wizard irrevocably insane, until his childhood friend, Anduin Lothar, aided Medivh’s young apprentice, Khadgar, in storming Karazhan and slaying their former comrade. Since that day, a terrible curse has pervaded both the tower and the lands around it – casting a dark pall over Deadwind Pass and the region that is now known as Duskwood.

After the fall of Karazhan, the Kirin Tor dispatched an assembly of mages to search the tower and seize all items of import for the purposes of “research.” It was then that Atiesh was discovered and brought back to Dalaran. [12]

Paladin’s daughters

After the Second War an area, which would later be known as Duskwood and the town of Grand Hamlet (later known as Darkshire), became darkened and surrounded by dark creatures. The people of Grand Hamlet thought the evil was caused by the tower of Karazhan. Several townsfolk ventured there to investigate the tower but they did not return. A paladin named Dougan along with his friends Kardan and Voldana entered the tower but the raid failed and resulted in the death of Dougan. While there, time seemed to unfold in strange ways for the trio.

Kardan and Voldana managed to escape, but Dougan did not and was killed inside. He would later discover that anyone who dies inside Karazhan will have their spirit trapped there, unable to escape. [13]

Years later, Dougan’s daughters, Lieren and Loania teleported into the tower only to find the horrors of its curse. Having escaped from Moroes, they found the killer of their father, satyr Terestian Illhoof. They killed him but Loania was hurt. As they were trying to leave they found the ghost of Nielas Aran who tried to kill them. Loania summoned Dougan who protected them while the horrors went after them. The twins teleported out of the Karazhan, leaving Dougan still trapped there. [14]

What is the Shadowlands release date for World of Warcraft?

Sylvanas brings about absolute destruction, and the afterlife is open.

  • Zack Palm May 18, 2020
  • GuidesPCWorld of Warcraft

World of Warcraft expansions come out every so often. Developer Blizzard uses these expansions to introduce new mechanics, refine content, and provide additional end-game milestones for players who been with the game since it initially released in 2004. Blizzard announced Shadowlands during Blizzard Con 2019 on Nov. 1.

Shadowlands will release for World of Warcraft sometime in 2020. Unfortunately, there’s no exact release date for this expansion. Currently, it’s going through alpha-testing, and after those testing the update provide Blizzard with adequate feedback to clarify, balance, and moderate any of the improvements, those on the live server can expect to see it after those tests.

The features coming to Shadowlands include the addition of a new location, aptly named Shadowlands, new zones named Revendreth, Ardenweald, Maldraxxus, and Bastion. Each has a unique appearance, and they feature covenants, which players will have to choose to align wit during the expansion. The four covenants have a unique armor set associated with them that players can earn during their journey to use during the new raids and dungeons.

One of the coming changes expected to drop with the expansion is how pets work during battle. They were initially shared by a Blizzard post, but have since been deleted. Wowhead was able to share a screenshot of the expected changes before the thread was deleted. Here are the expected changes:

  • Black Claw and similar abilities that increase damage taken by a flat amount.
  • Hunting Party and similar abilities such as Flock.
  • The Shattered Defenses debuff effect from abilities such as Hunting Party or Flock.
  • Any large percent-damage-taken or percent-damage-dealt buffs or debuffs.
  • Twilight Meteorite and similar long-cooldown damage-splitting abilities.
  • The Jar of Smelly Liquid ability.
  • Hermit Crab.

Additional pets are likely to also come with the expansion. However, any changes remain pure speculation. There is nothing confirmed at this time regarding Shadowlands.

We will update this post with those findings once we have additional details and an official release date for the World of Warcraft expansion.

World of Warcraft to get a new board game

Since the very beginning of the franchise way back in 2004, the extremely popular MMORPG World of Warcraft has been spawning an entire range of games including board games, card games, online games and others.

World of Warcraft / Facebook

The new board game being produced will be based on the original Small World game, but unlike the other recent releases, the WOW version aptly name Small World of Warcraft will be a standalone, re-skinned version of the game.

More about the board game

The game’s designer is Phillippe Keyaerts. He is a Belgian designer of German-style board games. The first two games he designed are Vinci and Evo, which use the mechanics of allowing the players to spend victory points to improve the characteristics of their play. He is also known for inventing a small space battle game called Space Blast. Phillipe Keyaerts is best known as the designer of Small World, a 2009 fantasy-themed board game based upon a remake of Vinci. In his personal “about” section on the Daysofwonder website he has this to say about his process:

“The creation of a game always comes from the desire to play a game that doesn’t exist. I turn and kick it around in my head for some time, then I draft a first game prototype, which I play test alone by myself. Then I play test the game with friends – I always try to give them a game prototype that works. Then, I tweak, and test, and tweak again and again until I get a great game – it is a long and difficult process. However, in the end, a new game sees the light, and seeing new players enjoying it is always a real pleasure!”

This game will be based in the glorious world of Azeroth from the video game universe.

In the game, two to five players will vie for control of several islands in the hostile world — their only only hope being to pick and choose the right combination of races and special powers.

After you have staked your claim to a piece of land, you need to defeat your neighbours and thereby expand your territory.

If you can manage to occupy the legendary places in the game and gain control of powerful magical artifacts, you will then reach new levels of domination.

However, empires must eventually fall, so you need to be ready to put your over-extended race into decline and then lead a new race to glory so you can eventually rule over all of Azeroth.

Inside the box you will get:

  • 6 double-sided game boards
  • 16 World of Warcraft races with matching banners and tokens
  • 20 special power badges
  • 7 legendary places and 5 artifacts
  • 10 mountains, 15 murlocs, 9 wisp walls, 4 harmony tokens, 12 bombs, 1 champion, 10 forts, 2 military objectives, 5 beasts and 6 watch towers
  • 1 game turn track and 1 game turn marker
  • 110 victory coins
  • 5 summary sheets
  • 1 reinforcement die
  • 1 rules booklet
  • 1 team variant rules sheet

This exciting new board game will be released soon and will have a price tag of $60 or about R1200.

I tried all 100 recipes in the World of Warcraft cookbook and it made me love the game again

Tasting the world of Azeroth through 100 recipes.

Food Week

It’s Food Week on PC Gamer, and we’re looking at all the interesting ways games and grub intersect. Thanks to Drake’s Cakes for sponsoring Food Week on PC Gamer.

This feature was originally published in issue 318 of PC Gamer UK and issue 306 of PC Gamer US. Get our beautiful magazine delivered to your door every month and save a bunch of money on the cover price.

Pausing on a snowy Northrend cliff, the icy twist of the wind sharpens as I gaze upon the Icecrown Citadel. I can hear a distant thud of Magnataur hooves and flap of blue drakes. But none of these virtual sensations comes as close to bringing Northrend to life for me as the remembered tastes of biting juniper, smoky pine, and chilled, fresh-caught salmon.

On December 25, 2016, my parents showed up for Christmas Day dinner and I, a disorganised young adult, had no plan for the turkey. In desperation I cracked open one of my Christmas Eve gifts, World of Warcraft: The Official Cookbook, and flipped to the recipe displayed on the cover: Slow-Roasted Turkey. A quick skim of the ingredients (common) and the instructions (easy) and six hours later, dinner was presented. It was both tasty and a touch uncanny.

The deliciousness spurred me to try more recipes until, somehow, I had convinced myself that I was going to finish the darn thing: all 100 recipes. It took 15 months. In the end, not every recipe was delicious. But like the turkey, most recipes possessed an uncanny flavour or appearance that whispered of their origins in fantasy and drew me, slowly, back to WoW.

Within each dish is a strange interplay: there are familiar dishes or main ingredients, inspirations from real cultures that in turn inspired the Warcraft culture in question, and almost always an extra ‘something’ that infuses a taste of Azeroth. A memorable example: the juniper berries that flavour the Steaming Chicken Soup. In a single spice, a simple chicken and dumpling dish finds a home in frozen Northrend. Another example is the rosewater in the Delicious Chocolate Cake, which author Chelsea Monroe-Cassel indicates is to stand in for the crafting herb Mageroyal. Just a spoonful, and a simple white raspberry cake is transformed into a herbalist treat straight from the Silverpine Forest.

Recipe for success

For most people and most cookbooks, it’s enough to dabble only in the most interesting recipes. By taking on the entire book, I got a double dose of food world tours encompassing the real world and Azeroth. Monroe-Cassel has concocted a brilliant mishmash of cultures with this work, ranging from Chinese noodle dishes to Italian breads to improvements on basic chicken fingers.

The recipes, which often included ingredients my general grocery store didn’t stock, offered real-life fetch quests that levelled up my cooking and ingredient-hunting skills, too. I visited Asian grocery stores, farmers’ markets, meat counters, spice stores. There, I met fellow chefs fascinated by my project and eager to share their own experiences with food, fantasy, or both. Of course, no recipe was eaten in solitude. My friends and family enjoyed the benefits of the project, and some learned about World of Warcraft for the first time.

Through these discoveries, the cookbook instilled in me not only a love for the craft of cooking, but a newfound love for the game. I resubbed to World of Warcraft ahead of the Battle for Azeroth expansion, and unsurprisingly, I now notice food everywhere. In inns and households you can find hogs roasting on spits over roaring fires surrounded by friendly NPCs and hear the laughter of elves as they take another sip of wine together. We surround an overloaded table and devour a feast before each raid for a stat buff, or pester a mage to drop a table piled with sweets for quick mana regeneration. Food in Azeroth, as in our world, offers warmth and safety during an endless struggle.

Over the years, I’ve returned to Azeroth again and again for the thrill of being an adventurer: powerful, brave and ready to battle my way through its vast and mysterious universe. The escapism of World of Warcraft allows me to be powerful in a safe, virtual space that can (thankfully) never cross over into reality. But in that world of conflict, racial tension and, well, Warcraft, my new favourite experience has nothing to do with division. It’s in the safety and intimacy of sharing a meal that the fantasy of Azeroth can become real for anyone, even those who would otherwise never set foot there. Just drop a table, and eat up.

All the dazzling photos in this piece were taken by Rebekah. Don’t miss our 2017 interview with the author of World of Warcraft: The Official Cookbook, Chelsea Monroe-Cassel. The WoW: Official Cookbook was published in 2016.

WoW BFA Inscription: An essential guide

The elusive Inscription was added to World of Warcraft during the Wrath of the Lich King expansion and it has been one of the more intriguing in-game professions since. This crafting profession has gone through quite a few changes over the years. Nowadays, we’re seeing even more adjustments to Inscription—and professions in Battle for Azeroth as a whole. That’s why we came up with this easy-to-digest WoW BfA Inscription guide!

Check out our Marketplace to buy cheap WOW Classic Gold.

We’re going to provide you with the best way to reach the skill level cap while also getting familiar with the various recipes. And yes, you should care about all the different Inscription recipes if you want to maximize your skill level. Last but not least, we’ll see if this is even a decent choice for a crafting profession in Battle for Azeroth, so make sure to read on!

Is Inscription worth it in BFA?

If you’re into selling Darkmoon Faire trinkets, absolutely! Regardless, it’s worth noting that the profit made from Glyphs back in the days is just not the same. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t make decent earnings from selling Glyphs. Chances are most players in BfA don’t have older recipes, so if you have any pre-BfA Glyphs, sell them!

Then there are the brand new reputation-consumables called Contracts that can be sold for a good profit. Each contract that you use increases your reputation with one of the factions in Battle for Azeroth by 10. And when you consider that just about everyone wants to boost their reputation with these factions for various reasons (e.g. flying in BfA), these Contracts can become a great gold-making tool for scribes!

You can also sell Vantus Runes, if your server is more end-game oriented. That’s because these runes can only be used in raid instances as they can be used only once each week and on a single boss only. Besides, Vantus Runes are also raid-specific as each particular recipe drops from a specific raid (i.e. Battle of Dazar’alor).

Where and How do you learn Inscription in Battle for Azeroth?

You can learn the Inscription profession in the Battle for Azeroth expansion by visiting your faction-specific trainer. Note that Blizzard has decided to split Inscription in BfA, making it more distinctive for each faction. Thus, Horde players learn Zandalari Inscription while Alliance players have access to the Kul Tiran Inscription.

Subsequently, the Horde Inscription trainer is located on the Zandalar continent, while the Alliance one is in Kul Tiras. Here’s what they’re called and how to find them:

Alliance Inscription Trainer:

  • Zooey Inksprocket – Located in the capital of Boralus in Tiragarde Sound (Kul Tiras), at the Tradewinds Market. (Exact coordinates – 73.6)

Horde Inscription Trainer:

  • Chronicler Kizani – Located inside the city of Dazar’alor in Zuldazar (Zandalar) at the Terrace of Crafters. (Exact coordinates – 42.3, 39.6)

What is the Best BfA Inscription Leveling Guide?

This is the most efficient and easy-to-implement Inscription leveling guide for reaching 175 skill level in BfA! On a side note, consider trying to level Inscription on a Nightborne character as they get +15 skill level to Inscription due to one of their racial abilities.

1 to 50

First, stack on loads and loads of Light Parchment as you’ll need it for various recipes. Then, this is what you need in order to reach level 50:

Make these inks until you get to 50 then stop.

50 to 80

From 50-80, either use your newly acquired Mass Mill spell or alternatively craft War-Scroll of Battle Shout scrolls until skill level 80—whichever you prefer.

80 to 85

Continue crafting War-Scroll of Battle Shout scrolls as at this point you’ll need around 5 to 8 of these, depending on your luck. This will mean that you need roughly x64 Crimson Ink.

85 to 142

Here, your best bet is to reach Honored reputation with the following factions (depending on your faction) – 7th Legion (Alliance) and The Honorbound (Horde). You can get to this reputation by completing your War Campaign and by doing several faction assaults—easy peasy! And here’s what you’ll need to craft in order to get to skill level 142:

These Contract recipes are sold by Vindicator Jaelaana (7th Legion/Alliance) found at 69.3 24.9 in Boralus and Ransa Greyfeather (The Honorbound/Horde) located at 50.08 99.66 in Dazar’alor.

142 to 145

At this point, you can still craft Contracts, but a more optimal approach would be to switch to making Darkmoon cards. Here’s what you’ll need in order to reach level 145:

145 to 175

The last and final step is to unlock the new Inscription recipes added in patch 8.2. To do so, you have to visit your faction’s Inscription trainer at the new zone Nazjatar – Instructor Okanu for Alliance characters (38.0, 53.2) and Narv for Hordies (49.2, 61.6). And this is what you’ll need to craft:

What changes did Blizzard make to the BfA Inscription Recipes?

The Inscription profession is now split by faction and there are new Inscription recipes, as well as new reputation-increasing consumables called Contracts and Venus Runes used in raids. Also, one of the more noticeable changes was that Rank 1 and Rank 2 recipes for this profession now require only a tiny bit of Inscription skill level in order to be learned. Other than that, both Rank 2 and Rank 3 recipes demand you to have learned the previous rank (i.e. having Rank 1 in order to unlock Rank 2) so that you may use them.

And as you might imagine, almost every patch since the releases of Battle for Azeroth has added new Inscription recipes to the game. Both patches 8.1 and 8.2 had added pretty much equal amounts of new recipes, although none were added in patch 8.1.5.

Conclusion

It’s safe to say that World of Warcraft’s 7th expansion implemented quite a few changes to how this crafting profession works. Nonetheless, the WoW BfA Inscription is still as intriguing as ever and possibly just as lucrative.

World of warcraft walkthrough recipes

So you can better understand which fish are used in the Cooking Profession, I assembled a table of all fishing-related recipes from skill level 1 to 450 , as a handy and free resource guide. I believe this is the best guide of its kind in the Warcraft community.

Leveling Fishing 1 – 450
Fortunately, fishing skill will increase ANYWHERE you fish. With every 25 skill-ups, fishing will generally require an additional “catch” per point of skill level increase. This means there is no way to speed level your fishing skill. However, the Fishing Buddy Add-On from www.curse.com is quite handy. It shows you how many fish need to be caught for each subsequent skill level increase. It also shows your catch rate statistics for every place you’ve fished. The most important rule of fishing in WoW is “avoid catching junk”. Fish in areas designed for your current or modified fishing skill level. You can use special fishing poles, fishing lures, wearable items with fishing skill bonuses, fishing lines, and drinks to pump up your fishing skill.

Low Level Toons | Cooking & Fishing
Fortunately, Low level toons can use the recipes and fish listed here to level all the way to a cooking skill of 425. You’ll have to be clever, but even a level 1 toon can raise their cooking skill to 425. Your toons need to be a minimum of level five (5) to learn to fish and level ten (10) or higher to learn fishing skill beyond skill level 75. Check out the rest of Trader WoW for tips and secrets to help you level up your lowbie’s cooking and fishing skill. I have completed this guide with several of my characters levels 20 and under.

Leveling Cooking AND Fishing together:
Cooking and fishing are two professions that go together like chocolate and peanut-butter. I put this list together to to help you better understand the logical order of seafood recipes and the fish needed as you work on improving your skill levels as a chef. The list is sorted by required cooking skill and might be handy if you want to level your cooking skill with fish you can catch in the waters all over the World of Warcraft. It is also a logical way to level up your fishing skill from as low as 1 to 450 while leveling your cooking skill.

This Fishing Guide and Cooking Guide includes:

  • The Food,
  • The Recipe,
  • Minimum level to eat,
  • The required fish,
  • Range of possible skill-ups (including the minimum skill needed to learn the recipe),
  • Where the recipe can be found.

Please enjoy, and I hope you find it useful.
