Outland Gourmet

January 18, 2009

I’ve got a post comming on Tuesday the details the parts of the Hail to the Chef Achievement, just like the fishing one I did last week.  Since the Outland Gorumet of the Achievment is so large, I moved it to it’s own post.

A few notes:

  • Do the Shattrath cooking daily!  There are several recipes that are only available through this daily.  You will need to keep doing the daily until you have all of these recipes.
  • Some of the recipes are quest rewards.  If you weren’t a Chef when you did those quests and vendored the recipe a GM should be able to restore it for you if you submit a ticket.  You may also be able to purchase the recipes on the Auction House.
  • If you don’t fish you will need to purchase some from the AH or find a buddy to get them for you.
  • Purchasing all of the needed meat/fish from the AH is an option, but one that I hesitate to recomend.  Since these are now “old-school” mats they will either be really cheap (because no one needs them any more) or really expensive (because no one farms them any more) depending on your server.  Either way, it may be hard to find everything and you’ll probably have to buy more than you need.  Once you have all of the recipes, you should be able to farm everything you will need in one sitting if you are level 80.

Assuming you are like me, and don’t have any of these recipes, here’s where you will need to go to get all of the recipes:

Once you have all of the recipes, here’s a complete materials list to cook all the recipes.  (Note: Mok’Nathal Short Ribs, Crunchy Serpent, Roasted Clefthoof, and Warp Burgers are left out as you will already have cooked them if you’ve done the Shattrath Dailies and if you have all of the recipes you will most certianly have done the Shattrath Dailies)

    Classic Instances Suck

    January 7, 2009

    I got the Eastern Kingdoms Exploration Acheivement last night.  I’ve been trying to do instances as I encounter them but I’m going to have to go back for a couple of them. 

    I went into Sunken Temple (I’ve always hated that place and this time around didn’t disapoint).  After wandering around for a little while I finally remembered what order I have to do things in.  I killed the troll mini-bosses and went down to kill the prophet guy.  I had hoped that I could take him solo, but when you pull him all the guys in the room come too.  I had no problem with that, but when the adds die they spawn ghosts and they’re immune to holy damage.  Guess what I was using for AOE… yep, that’s right, Holy Nova.  Laugh if you want, but it’s instant cast and requires no targeting.  Easy mode.  By the time I realized what was going on they had killed me.  I went back in and went over to the dragon… “Invalid Traget”  Crap… I went back to kill the prophet guy again and the wall was back up… Crap.  I gave up at that point and went and cooked me some dinner.

    Later on I was running Uldaman while in the Badlands and unbeknownst to me you have to have several people to summon the last boss that you need for the acheivement.  Crap. 

    Gnomer went really smoothly.  That place is a little confusing, but I managed to find my way to the last boss and kill him.  In the end it was the ever annoying elevator boss that got me.  I couldn’t get out.  The elevator that takes you up and down from the area wouldn’t take me up.  I’m not sure if it’s a Horde thing or if it was just bugged but I had to hearth out.

    I don’t think I’ll be able to work on my Explorer title tonight as I’ll need to gather raid mats for raid tomorow.  Phooie.

    Edit: I just re-read this and it sounds whiny… it was meant to be a little funny… just pretend that it’s funny for me, ok?
