WoW Fishing and Cooking Guide 1-450 (Horde)


This WoW guide (up-to-date for patch 3.1) will cover training your Fishing and Cooking levels together from 1 to 450 and what to fish and cook while leveling Fishing and Cooking together as a Horde character in World of Warcraft. Fishing and Cooking are both secondary professions, which means everyone can and should develop them. Learning to fish or cook won’t limit what other professions you train your character in. Fishing complements the Cooking profession very well, as most fish can be cooked and the higher levels of Cooking require certain fish. Fishing is also a good source of food, and can provide a modest gold income – cooked fish are worth more than raw fish. This guide has been split in two for Alliance and Horde characters. This post contains the Horde guide – the Alliance guide is here. There are also have guides for training Cooking and Fishing seperately.

Due to the location of the vendors for many of the early recipes, training Fishing and Cooking together is much easier for Tauren and Undead. The other Horde races should travel to Undercity as the earliest opportunity to get the recipes for Apprentice and Journeymen levels – Blood Elves via the Orb of Translocation in Silvermoon City, Orcs and Trolls via Zeppelin from outside Orgrimmar.

If you wish to use this as a power-leveling guide then I would suggest starting in Bloodhoof Village, Mulgore and choosing the closest trainers and fishing locations from there as you level up.

This is a fabulous guide, but it hasn’t been updated since pre-Cataclysm (for example, Gikkix and Steamwheedle Port no longer exist, and the recipes he sold can now be learned from trainers). Perhaps consider updating, as it took me a bit of digging to find this out? Other than that, GREAT information, thank you!

I thought i give cooking and fishing a try at least once since i started WoW…
This guided helped a lot, thx mate!

I want to point out that leveling cooking from 285 to 315 was a pain. This however is easily made by this Quest (Horde or Ally) in Silithus obtainable at 285:
http://www.wowhead.com/quest=8307/desert-recipe
When u turn in the followup quest u get tought how to cook worm meat. Just collect it from the worms in the surrounding area. HF
