    Mini-Guide: Legion Cooking


    I quickly realized a couple things about cooking in Legion. First, obtaining the new cooking recipes is a convoluted PITA. The mechanisms by which they're obtained are either grindy or obscure enough to turn off the average player from obtaining them. Secondly, demand for consumables has never been higher, in part due to the popularity of Mythics and the accessibility of raiding content for all players. This is a perfect combination for goblins; a market with a barrier of entry, and healthy demand for those inside.

    If you're like me, most of your character have never trained or leveled cooking seriously. Luckily for you, a cooking skill level of 1 is sufficient to make some profits right out of the gate.

    That's not to say you can walk straight into this market. There are 21 new cooking recipes in Legion, about 19 of which are worth learning.

    You will need to learn 6 recipes right off the bat in order to progress with Nomi, the cooking NPC.

    Reward from: I'm Not Lion!
    Reward from: Morale Booster
    Reward from: Shriek No More
    Reward from: The Magister of Mixology
    Reward from: A Heavy Burden
    Reward from: Murlocs: The Next Generation

    Once you've unlocked Nomi, you can start queuing up Work Orders. We'll get to that later. By the way, WoWhead's cooking guide is pretty thorough, but perhaps slightly out-of-scope for our interests.

    Next, go after the remaining recipes. Follow WoWhead's guide for instructions on how to obtain them.








    Nomi and Work Orders

    The remaining 8 recipes and all rank 2 to 3 versions of the recipes above are discovered with Nomi Work Orders;










    What are Nomi Work Orders and how do they work? That's the convoluted part.

    These Work Orders function like any garrison work order. Resource in, product out. In this case, you give Nomi ingredients, he experiments with them, and produces either or a recipe. The recipe produced depends on the ingredient you give him.

    For example, if you queue up Work Orders with , you'll have a chance to discover a higher rank of or , since both of these recipes require Wildfowl Egg.

    It's a good idea to mix up the type of food you give Nomi, since he can produce duplicate recipes if you feed him too much of one thing. It's happened to me 3-4 times already.

    Now, it can be hard to track which ingredients will yield the best results. That's where the addon Nomicakes comes in. This addon quite simply "displays how many recipes are learnable from each ingredient on Nomi's work order options, and how many of that ingredient you have in your inventory".



    TSM Setup

    The TSM setup for cooking is straightforward. The import string below will give you my entire setup, from groups to operations.



    And that's it! I've only started selling cooked goods yesterday and the results have been phenomenal. With more rank 3 recipes unlocked, cooking should yield about 40k/day.

    Misc Tips

    • Cooking reagents are often dumped at the AH in small amount, with large undercuts. Scoop up any extra reagent you see, rather than buying what you need to fill restock queues.
    • Buy 2000 of each vendor item and dump them in your reagent bank. Thank me later.
    • Tuesday isn't the day to buy reagents. Stock up before then.
    • Try overcutting before the Tuesday reset.
    • Cooks get a baseline spell; cooking fire. Use it to cook food anywhere.
    • Try ignoring stacks of 1 in your auctioning operations. Players prefer to buy stacks of 5.

    How about some day 1 results?

    23,000g in sales and I'm maybe 20% done collecting/ranking recipes.

    7.1 isn't a new tier, it doesn't even have a full raid, so I'm 99% sure that won't be going away until nighthold or even later. Might as well take advantage of the market though if it thinks it is going away.

    @morfraen 7.1 does bring a new raid, with Odyn and Helga. It comes 2 weeks after, I think.

    On my server, even with lvl3 recipes, most crafts are at most 1-2g profit.

    By now almost all consumables on the AH cost just a fraction above crafting cost with lvl3 recipes, or below that in case of alchemy proc'able consumables...
