Tillers and Pandaren Cooking Reference Guide

With a couple of months now passed since the launch of Mists of Pandaria, I’ve done a whole lot of mindless farming – literally farming not the gamer slang version. Let’s face it, there’s a whole lot of achievements associated with farming and cooking, so, being the achievement-whore that I am, I just had to put in the effort to get all of them. It’s not a short journey, that much is certain. Is it fun? Not particularly.

To master all of the Ways of cooking and to earn the best friendship of all of the friends of the farm, it takes a whole lot of resources. Harvested ingredients, hunted ingredients, and fished ingredients galore, in total it’s a collection of well over 5,000 individual items – and this isn’t including the Now I am the Master achievement. Keeping track of all the needed resources for all these achievements is quite a task, but having a fancy spreadsheet sure does help.

To keep track of all these resources and to find out exactly how many more I needed to complete most of the achievements, I built a comprehensive spreadsheet covering Friend on the Farm, Master of Pandaren Cooking, ! To Be a Master, and various additional quests that revolve around Pandaren cooking. This spreadsheet will track a complete listing of all the ingredients required to accomplish maxing out your farmer friendships, hitting 600 in all Ways of cooking, and becoming a Master cook by cooking each of the six 600-skill recipes. The spreadsheet should expand over time as I complete more quests.
