I went to cook up some food I had in the bank and noticed that I was cooking at what seemed amazing speed. The usual languid progress bar was zipping along with almost indecent haste.
Well, there was a patch yesterday, so I checked the release notes to see if they had “dumbed down” cooking or anything.
But no, while Onyxia is now back as a level 80 raid (with 10 and 25 person versions), cooking was left untouched.
Then I happened to mouse over my chef’s hat, which I was still wearing from yesterday’s screen shot, and I noticed that it had an effect when worn.
It does indeed allow you to cook faster. Very fast indeed. Nice to see that a fluff item has even a minor benefit.
