Achievement Hunter: Cooking Part 1

 Want to start achievement hunting? Not sure where to begin? Not a problem! Each week Phoenixsting will go over some achievement hunting, with tips on where to begin.

Time to grab those aprons, equip your cooking mitts and pop on your chef’s hat, this week we are opening the recipe book and cooking for achievement points.


Journeyman/Expert/Artisan/Master/Grand Master Cook


This is one that you will get as you level up your cooking, there is no one good way to go about this but there are a few guides out on the net that can help you do this as quick as possible.

Critter Gitter

Personally this is one of my favourite achievements in game. Who doesn’t dream of having their own penguin army?

I found the best spot to do this is on an Iceberg just south of Death’s Stand in Borean Tundra. There are a lot of penguins here so you won’t have to run all over the place looking for critters.

The advantage of this one is you don’t even need to have cooking to do it. You can buy the Critter Bites off the Auction House or have someone else make some for you. You do need to be level 70 to use them though.

 Captain Rumsey’s Lager

You can get the recipe for the Captains lager from doing any of the fishing daily quests in Shattrath,  the fishing daily in Dalaran or the cooking daily quest in Dalaran. You can get the ingredients for it from most bartenders in the game.

The cake is not a lie

This is another one that you will get from the cooking dailies in Dalaran. The achievement is named after the cake in the game Portal. “The Cake is a lie” has become an internet catch phrase and it is cool when Blizzard starts to do little references like this in WoW. It has a lower drop rate then most of the other recipes from the dailies so it might take a while to get. Don’t forget that you can do both the cooking daily in Shattrath and the one in Dalaran to get a shot at the recipe.  When you sit down to eat your cake you will get fireworks shooting out of you and a buff that says you’re very happy. The buff doesn’t have any other effects other than to say your happy.

The writing on the wall in Portal.

Stay tuned for the next edition where I will continue to cover all of the Cooking Achievements.
