Edit: I have confirmed that you can pass through the Dark Portal at any level, so long as you can get there physically. I just managed it at level 10 (I died a lot on the way, though!) On arrival in Hellfire Peninsula you will automatically have the flight path to Thrallmar/Honor Hold (no cost).

Edit 2: You can get master level cooking from the grand master trainers in Northrend - much, much easier for low-level toons. The guide has been amended.

Edit 3: You don't even have to go to Northrend - all the Pilgrim's Bounty trainers go right up to Grand Master. The guide has been amended again.

You can go through the Dark Portal at any level, you just can't use the portal from capital cities until you are level 58, so if you are less than that you will have to travel to the Blasted Lands on your mount or on foot. On arrival in Hellfire Peninsula you will automatically have the flight path to Thrallmar (no cost).

I think you have to be 58 to go through the dark portal. I've tried to go at 50 to train professions and it refused to let me through, so I had to have a friend port me to Shatt. This was some time ago, so I don't know if that's changed with the more recent patches.

Edited at 2010-11-21 06:09 am (UTC)

i had this problem recently - i wanted to do blasted land quests for loremaster and i wasn't able to go through at 55 or 56.

I think it was, actually -- my squidadin walked through it at, hm, 49 or something? and even flew to Honor Hold and Shattrath without issue. I commented on it in gchat at the time and got similar "buh?" reactions to mine.

I've been through at 40 (by accident, fleeing mobs) and the flight path was available to me. I'll double check tonight though.

I just went and tried, they did change it since the last time I tried (which was June-ish). Silly warrior ended up 43 through my misadventures. :p

Don't know when they changed it, but they did. So it was changed sometime between June and now. I tend to annoy my boyfriend with getting professions worked on asap so I can ignore them and just level. /shrugs.

At least now I don't have to play port self with my mage before my portal disappears! woo less work.

Awesome, thanks for the re-post :)

Woot! I've been waiting all year to do this on my many altsies. I used it last year to level some other alts' cooking, it was awesome.

Thanks for posting this! I have a few characters I need to level cooking on... >_>

If you don't want to go to outl;and I believe you can train in Northrend aswell

Really? I will check that tonight, if so then people can go to NR to train for master-level cooking.

Thank you, the guide has been amended. I'm very glad, actually, as I have several low-level toons to get cooking and was not looking forward to the death run.

Time to level cooking on all my neglected alts!

Ooooh, my shaman's cooking has been ABYSMAL and I have like wicked OCD and need it to be MAXED hahah so this is a great guide :D

You might be able to get Master Cooking in any of the capitals now--I know that I was able to train Master Alchemy and Herbalism just a couple days ago on my warlock in Orgrimmar, as well as First Aid. Her cooking is horrible right now, and I can't confirm it or not, but it seems likely since you can with other professions now.

EDIT: Actually, checking on Wowhead, they have Northrend recipes as being available all over Azeroth from Cooking trainers, so I'll upgrade this from "might" to "extremely likely."

Edited at 2010-11-21 02:51 pm (UTC)

At the cooking trainer outside SW, there is no level requirement listed for Master Cooking, so I'm pretty sure you're right.

Yes, I checked this morning, all the Pilgrim's Bounty cooking trainers will take you right up to Grand Master as long as you have the money. I've amended the guide again.

This is exactly what I did on my lil' Pally last year. This year, he's a big boy and getting the rest of the achieves and his Turkey.

(Dunno if anyone has said this yet) From what I've observed on my alts, you no longer have to go to Outland/Northrend trainers to get Master/Grand Master proffessions. I got them on my lower level toons before I was even high enough level for those areas. Hope this helps.

Yes, I found this out today too, so I have amended the guide. Thanks for pointing it out.

May I repost this to my guild's forums with credit to you and a link to this post? :)

That would be fine, just make sure you have Edit 3 as there have been some changes this morning.

Yay! I never bothered leveling cooking on my shaman since i had it on my other toons, but since I've read that engineers are going to be able to make a techno-great-feast sort of thing in cata I realized I'd better start getting her cooking up! Thanks for the guide!

I was able to get Master Cooking on my toons from the trainers right by the Pilgrim's Bounty quest hub just now-- I don't know if these holiday trainers are special in any way, but I definitely didn't need to go to Outland/Northrend to train.

Yes, I found that out this morning too, I've amended the guide.
