Some general achievements (for alliance)

Boxxeraj's picture

If you're here as horde, I must ask you to turn back, because i haven't done your guide yet, but don't fear, it will come in the future!

This is a guide for 5 Achievements combined (Tastes like chicken, To all the squirrels I've loved before, Friend or Fowl?, Old Crafty, The fishing diplomat)

1 Great proposal for those following the whole guide is to explore everything at the places I tell you to go! It will make it easier for you later when doing the exploration achievements!

For those of you who are leveling cooking or have finished the first Achievement already, just continue to the parts where the critters are.

I'm sorry to say there is no pictures because I couldn't get it to work, but it's no problem.

First of all, I wanna recommend an addon to make this easier, and that is mapcoords.

This guide actually requires level 65+ because some of the food requires 65 to eat (if you're doing the food part only, otherwise its 70+ because you will be entering Wotlk zones)
A quick teleport to Shattrath (HearthStone or Portal) will make things go smoother.
It will be much easier to finish though when you're level 80 because a lot more food will be available.
In this guide you will spend approximately 10~13g (if I counted wrong and you pay less/more, please tell me).
I will also tell you to start the secondary skill "Cooking" because it's very easy to get some easy food at start.


But now for the guide:

Start of by going to Stormwind. Depending on where in Stormwind you are, you can buy your cheese.
These are available to buy in the listed areas below:

Elaine Trias [Cheese seller] (SW harbor)
Ben Trias [Cheese seller] (66.5, 73.6 SW Trade district)

Alterac Swiss 40s
Dalaran Sharp 1,25s
Darnassian Bleu 25c
Dwarven Mild 5s
Fine Aged Cheddar 20s
Stormwind Brie 10s

/6 Pieces of food and you should have payed 76,5s in total.


Now make your way to the Trade district in SW if you didn't buy your cheese there.
You should find Thomas Miller walking around in the district. NOTE: He's a baker.
Thomas Miller [Baker] (walking around in SW trade district)

Freshly Baked Bread 1,25s
Homemade Cherry Pie 40s
Moist Cornbread 5s
Mulgore Spice Bread 10s
Soft Banana Bread 20s
Tough Hunk of Bread 25c

/6 Pieces of food available and you should have payed 76,5s (12 food and 1,53g spent in total)


Before making our way to the next city, we will visit a nice little inn, in a nice little village. YES! We're making our way to Goldshire.
Go straight to the trade supplies seller outside the inn Tharynn Bouden and get yourself some Flour and Mild Spices.
Then go slay some Boars and Wolves until you got at least 1 "Chunk of Boar Meat" and 10 "Stringy Wolf meat".
Now go into the inn and in the room behind the bar. There you will find Tomas.
He will teach you cooking and how to make Spice Bread, Charred Wolf Meat and Roasted Boar Meat.
Stand next to the fire and open up your profession book for cooking, and if you're level 65+ you should know how to do 1 Spice bread, 1 Roasted Boar meat and 9 Charred wolf meat.
After that talk to Tomas again and learn Spiced Wolf Meat. You should have the ingredients to make this now.
Now we're done with cooking.

Make sure you targeted and said /love to the critters listed below before leaving Elwynn Forest
- Cat (They can be found at the house where you buy cats on the way between Goldshire and Stormwind)
- Chicken (Found close to the blacksmithing house in Goldshire)
- Cow
- Deer
- Fawn
- Rabbit
- Sheep

Those with no specific location can be found all over Elwynn forest.

Now make your way to the deeprun tram in the Dwarven district and get on one of the trams.
Now, as the tram stops in IronForge, look around you for a gnome named Nipsy. He should be selling Deeprun rat kabob.
If not, just take his 2 (or 3) quests, which take about 5~10 min to finish, and you will get the kabob in reward.
And don't forget to /love a rat before leaving.


OK. As we're done in the Deeprun tram, we make our way into Ironforge.
Your first stop will be in the Military ward, looking for Sognar Cliffbeard

Sognar Cliffbeard [Meat vendor] (Walking around in The Military Ward in IF)

Cured Ham Steak 20s
Haunch of Meat 1,25s
Mutton Chop 5s
Roasted Quail 40s
Tough Jerky 25c
Wild Hog Shank 10s

/6 Pieces available and fee of 76,5s (23 food and 2,3g in total)


Alright, now make your way all the way up to the mystic ward.
Now look for the next gnome! Her name is Bimble Longberry, and guess what she's selling? Of course, it's fruit!

Bimble Longberry [Fruit vendor] (walking around Mystic Ward in IF)

Deep Fried Plantains 40s
Goldenbark Apple 10s

Shiny Red Apple 25c
Snapvine Watermelon 5s

Now make your way out of IF and into the cold world of Dun Morogh
Go to Khanaros south of IF and talk to Ragnar Thunderbrew and get the quest Beer Basted Boar Ribs.
After that, make your way to the east and enter Loch Modan and /love the critters listed below
- Ram
- Squirrel
- Sheep (If you missed it in Elwynn forest)


Now teleport to Shattrath City.
The first thing you should do in Shattrath is walking straight to 57.2, 22.0 and /love the Ewe you find there (it can't be found in another place).
Now make your way to the vendors listed below, just follow coords. Be aware that some of the coords lead up to either Scryer or Aldor, so make sure to go to the other coord.

- Brendan Turner (43.8, 67.9); (59.0, 68,6)
- Granny Smith (32.9, 29.7); (44.0, 67.9) ; (63.6, 68.4)
- Oloraak (56.7, 15.4); (89.0, 44.7)

Brendan Turner (Just below scryer tier and on Scryer Tier, might bug so relog to buy)

Clefthoof Ribs 80s
Smoked Talbuk Venison 56s

/2 pieces of food and 1,36g in fee (32 food and ~4,5g)

Granny Smith (aldor rise, scryer tier below scryer)

Conjured Cinnamon Roll
Conjured Croissant
Conjured Muffin
Conjured Pumpernickel

Conjured Sourdough

(And of course you can eat from table, not sure it counts though)

/8 0~5g depending on the person you ask (50 food done and 8~13g spent)


Ok, now we're done with the Taste of Chicken Achievement. Now we're gonna get the rest of the Critters.
You should have these so far:
- Cat
- Chicken
- Cow
- Deer
- Ewe
- Fawn
- Rabbit
- Ram
- Sheep
- Squirrel

10 done, 11 to go.

Remaining are:

- Hare (Durotar)
- Prairie dog (Nagrand, Mulgore, The barrens, Arathi highlands and Westfall)
- Steam frog (Borean Thundra)
- Parrot (Un'Goro Crater)
- Skunk (Terokkar Forest, Bloodmyst Isle, Azuremyst Isle)
- Borean Frog (Borean Thundra)
- Crab (Borean Thundra, Dragonblight, Ghostlands, Howling Fjord)
- Frog (Zangarmarsh, Eversong Woods, Ghostlands)
- Swine (The Barrens, Durotar)
- Gazelle (The Barrens)
- Toad (Nagrand, Darnassus, Wetlands, Eversong Woods, Teldrassil)

The best places to go to finish this quickly are:

Durotar (2 possible)
The Barrens (3 possible)
Zangarmarsh (1 possible)
Nagrand (2 possible)
Borean Thundra (3 possible)
Un'Goro Crater (1 possible)
Terokkar Forest (1 possible)

More info than this is useless, since critters are running all over the zones. All that's needed is some logical thinking like for an example Toad belongs to water, etc.

For the Achivement [Friend or Fowl?], Howling fjord is the place to do this. I'm not sure if there is turkeys in another place to be honest.
When you take the boat from menethil harbor, you will end up at vangarde keep. along the shore, there is a guy that can take you to explorers league by flight if you have done some certain quests. If you haven't just follow the road out of vangarde, and just head south until you reach the horde town New Agamand. From there just head east, cross the bridge and follow the road until you stand at a split road (69.0, 64.0). You should now see several Fjord Turkeys. Make sure you locate as many as possible before you start to make sure you finish the achievement Smiling Good Luck Smiling

Now for the fishing achievements:
Old Crafty and The fishing diplomat are 2 special cases and requires at least level 72+ (to do it my way and to do it the easiest Smiling)
Requirements to do it my way: Done with Veteran of the Wrathgate and not turned in and (not) finished Fate, Up Against Your Will. And according to some reliable fishing sources, a plus would be if you had the daily Crocolisk in the City.
Ok, here we go:
After obtaining the quest Reborn From The Ashes and just before you turn it in, I suggest you go make sure you got bait, fishing pole and the daily Crocolisk in the City with you.
Go turn in the quest at king wrynn and get the follow up Fate, Up Against Your Will.
Talk to the Lady next to king Wrynn and ask her to teleport you to Ogrimmar. When at Ogrimmar DON'T turn in the quest by talking to Thrall, instead go east and up to the Valley of Honor.

IMPORTANT INFO: Don't loot the baby crocolisk (quest item for the daily) if you should fish him up, then it doesnt matter that you brought the quest.
Now you should know what to do Sticking out tongue! Just fish! And since you have (not necessary) Crocolisk in the City you should've finished both in 10 casts Sticking out tongue maybe 20 or 30 or more, but just be patient. If you didn't bring the daily, you can stand there for lots of hours. What I know, it had taken at most 1300 casts to get the fish Old Crafty for the achievement Old Crafty.
You can always hs out of Ogrimmar and come back by talking to the same lady again.

IMPORTANT INFO: Don't loot the baby crocolisk (quest item for the daily) if you should fish him up, then it doesnt matter that you brought the quest.

OK, that's all.
I must apologize for the typos i probably have done in city names and item names, so I really appreciate all feedback on spelling and things in guide, that makes it better!
Horde guide for the cooking will be up sometime in the future.

A Suggestion ...

The text leads off not telling you which achievements you'll be accomplishing ... perhaps a listing at the beginning of the text?

Also ... it doesn't say where to get the Ewe. It says "Fawn" for Elwynn, is this supposed to be the Ewe?

Thanks!

Ewe

I do say where to get Ewe. It's in shattrat city. Look for the part when you get to shat in the guide and you'll see it.

While using Fate, Up Against

While using Fate, Up Against Your Will portal to get phased Orgrimmar, you can't anymore fish there (you can fish but get no loot, other than Crocolisk. Funny is you can get skills up Smiling )

Hope you don't mind Boxxeraj, but Kalya was kind enough to text format your guide. So I simply replaced the old version with hers Eye

Valuable information, but

Valuable information, but what this needs the most is some text formatting. Right now, it's just a big wall of text.

Boxxeraj's picture

I am aware of this and I

I am aware of this and I just put up the guide while formating outside so that people could use it ASAP. I will soon put up the formated version after i figured out how to formate completely
