This page lists all cooked fish dishes by cooking skill. The cooking skill each recipe "changes color" is shown. Recipes are normally orange when learned. Orange recipes will always grant a skill point when you cook the dish. Yellow recipes have a high chance of a skill-up, green a low chance. Once the recipe has "turned grey", there is no chance of gaining skill from cooking it.

Cooking levels for Fish Fry

  1. jules_uk, March 2011:

    The skillups listed for Fish Fry are incorrect. I have just bought it at cooking skill 475 and it was orange; it went yellow at 490. Perhaps it required cooking 500 when Cata first came out but not now.

  2. el, March 2011:

    Very interesting, since this probably changes the best approach to fishing and cooking leveling. I've altered the fish finder.
