Breakfast Topic: Are you a cooking master?

Anne Stickney

I like to complete things. It's one of those odd little quirks that really works for me in WoW, because there are so many different things to collect and complete. All reputations on my main need to be exalted before the expansion is over or I'm just not happy. All recipes need to be learned, all cool mounts obtained at some point or another, pets gathered -- although I'm rapidly running out of steam on that one just because there are so many pets out there now.

Yet despite the delight I take in checking off boxes and completing things, I still haven't finished maxing out cooking on my main. It's not that I don't like cooking, it's just that the process is oddly convoluted this time around, what with all the different schools, recipes, and mass quantities of ingredients involved in making it happen. As a collector, I don't exactly have a ton of bag space in which to squirrel away ingredients.

And so the profession has sat there, incomplete. I like the idea of getting it done, I just can't seem to bring myself to actually learn all the recipes and do it. For some reason, it's the one thing I just can't seem to be bothered to complete this expansion -- although that feeling may change as we wait for Warlords to be released. What about you guys? Have you maxed out your cooking? Can you make noodle carts like a pro? Have you gotten your cooking apprentice -- and what's that like? Or are you like me, void of available space to work with and slightly burnt out on the idea of farming things and killing things to cook various other things? Do you think the cooking system worked with Mists, or would you rather see something different in Warlords?
