    Achievement: Chef! (Cooking)

    Hey everyone,

    I realize this is a secondary profession but I thought I might as well ask those WoW cooks out there... I've been working on that achievement doing dailies ever since I got the game (aprox. a week after launch)

    Has anyone been able to recieve all the dailies? for 15 days or more I've had the same 3 quests in Dalaran, I've never recieved the others in order to complete the achievement. Is it just a streak of bad luck or is this meant to not happen yet?

    Same thing has ocurred in with Shatt ones, have never recieved the "Vengeance (something)" quest in order to get that one done.

    I also noticed there's a "whale meat" recipe in the "Northrend Gourmet" achievement but there's not really a recipe for it. I know it says "cook 30 of these recipes" but I haven't actually done the tally, perhaps this one isn't needed.

    Some people might think cooking to be lame, but there's actually some great extra buffs out there. Feast is a pretty good example.

    Some of the references might have wrong names, I'm at work.

    No, I don't have the delicious chocolate cake yet.
    Yes, fishing being somewhat of a requirement stinks.

    Comments on the subject are welcome.

    Thanks

    For the daily cooking quest, just keep doing it and you will get them all eventually. I got worried too since the first 10 times I did it I only saw 3 of the dailies, mustard dogs was probably 6 of them, but eventually I got all of them.

    For Northrend Gourmet it appears that currently you can not finish it therefore you cant get the Chef title yet. You need to cook 45 of the 46 northrend recipes and right now 4 of them arent even in the game yet.

    Check the comments here at the bottom there is even a blue post on the european forums confirming this.

    The Dalaran daily cooking quest (if all realms are given the same dailies) could be completed about 4 days ago, when the Cheese/Wine quest came up. Most of the time however, I keep seeing the mushroom or mustard one coming up.

    And indeed, the title/achievement can not be completed as it is, since some recipies are not in-game yet. My best guess is that it doesn't need to be in-game before, say, the next content patch, since it will take you at LEAST another week or two from now to pick up enough cooking rewards to buy all the other recipies from the vendor

    Thanks guys for your replies.

    I guess Chef title coming up later in the game makes sense since you can only get 1 cooking reward a day (I think I saw 1 in a spice bag once), and that's really the slowest step in order to get all those recipes.

    Whether cooking / fishing makes money or not, one cannot tell at this point in the game. I've never tried selling cooked goods in the AH this patch, it does make a great present for friends and good for the extra buff.

    I did see that raw fish, meat and northern spices were pretty high up on the AH. There's always someone who buys, I'd say.

    Money from cooking?
    Nah, hardly.

    As for Luris:
    Those extremely lucky, could maybe obtain 1 Dalaran cooking rewards from the bag and two fromt hat one quest that rewards two of them. That makes three in one daily quest

    It's sort of confusing as the "hail to the chef" says you need the northrend gourmet, but it doesn't say "which one" or for how many recipes that is....

    Indeed. But trust me on it that, at least for now, you ned the last tier of it, requiring you to need basicly ALL the known Northrend recipies

    Currently it's impossible since two recipes for Northrend Gourmet is not ingame yet.

    And yes, it's the "big one", aka. version 3 aka. "all recipes" that you need to do to get the title.

    You can make money from cooking. I went with the Snapper Extreme recipe as the first one I got (+40 hit rating, figured might be good for selling to raiders) and I have been selling them for 20g/5. I would say that is pretty good and I have been selling other food for lesser prices. Sure it isnt huge money but I enjoy fishing so nice and easy to cook it up and sell it.

    My bad luck can be explained easy: I just recently looted the Baron Rivendare mount, so I gues I used up all my luck for this year.

    Are you kidding?

    In BC I was paying 20g/ stack of golden fishsticks and i'm paying twice that for the LK equiv. People are making money off of my "meh" for leveling fishing.

    Re: Achievement: Chef! (Cooking)

    As you can see it's listed as the criteria of Hail to the Chef, where as http://www.wowhead.com/?achievement=1778 is not.

    Re: Achievement: Chef! (Cooking)

    Are there several levels of completion to the Northen Gourmet achv.?

    Because on my achievment screen it says to "cook 30 of the recipies listed below".



    EDIT...nevermind. See a green and blue symbol on wowhead now...one for 30 and one for 45. The symbol on the "Chef" one is the Blue, so looks like you need the 45.

    Re: Achievement: Chef! (Cooking)

    Also interesting to note, the bag of spices you get from the daily cooking quest can contain the same cooking recipes you can get in the shattrath daily cooking quests.

    Or some at least, I got the chocolate cake last week this way.
