    for those twinks who dabbled in grinding secondary professions before the overhaul that gated them behind expansion level requirements; what are the benefits you see today in 8.2.5?

    i have outland fishing and cataclysm cooking on a level 20, but i don't know the possible benefits. clue me in?

    Aside from cooking recipe collection the only benefit is having pandaria fishing for the raft toy really

    Which let me tell you, I fucking love that raft toy like it's my only child...

    bummer, i only got to 325 before the overhaul. can finish out the 25/75 outland portion when i resub.
    cooking was up to 480 or so.

    guess there's only one way to find out what's obtainable from outland fishing. i speculate scoring the turtle in northrend might take less time...

    You can level those grandfathered expansion professions (slowly) via DMF quests. Which is damn cool. But rather useless except for said raft toy.

    I don't think there's a single day that passes where I don't kick myself for not maxing my fucking cooking... Stuck at Northered and it makes me irate

    did a little digging, here are the few recipes i can buy & learn with cataclysm cooking:

    https://www.wowhead.com/item=65431/recipe-chocolate-cookie
    https://www.wowhead.com/item=65408/recipe-feathered-lure - requires cataclysm fishing to use the consumable though

    and here are bop recipes that drop from high level mobs, for which 20s have no active loot tables for:

    Forgot about that one while typing, I like perma buffs too but the hat is ugly unless you have a mog to match it.

    Alternatively if you also have Northerend Engi (which most of us that have the fishing / cooking do) you can use the x-ray specs, which look cooler and fit more mogs.

    The Chef's Hat is probably rarer among 20s though.

    Dcm and I tried to get jeeves back when northrend engi first came out with no luck. I dont think its possible since I've never heard of seen anyone with it. Would be cool but looks like it's a no for now :(

    STV boots are great for that extra port.
    Also, what about https://www.wowhead.com/item=84661/dragon-fishing-pole for that real Salty swag.....
    I’m kicking myself I didn’t get more toons higher fishing and cooking.
    I got Draenor fishing and Pandaran cooking on my Huntard, but only Outland fishing on my Warrior.
    I flagged Pandaren cooking on all my toons as I brought some recipes before things changed, so can max them all out in Pandaren cooking, though it’s a long grind via DMF.
    I also like getting on the raft in front of lvl 120’s fishing in DMF. Sort of like a flex to show who’s boss.....

    Boss? I have the ice floe raft on I think 3 of my 19 mages. :)

    I do wish I'd done more, though. Instead, I put my efforts into something else, counting on Blizzard to do something sensible.
    Dumb me.

    I'd like to note that like the raft is the only way you can even come close to winning the fishing event anymore on low levels....

    Unless you have someone to taxi you around, I'd imagine it'd HAVE to be a druid because the cast time would be brutal.
