Sometimes its the simple things in life that are the most rewarding.
Its is the Chef’s Hat. Hands down.
I got it just for kicks a while ago, because I was doing the cooking dailies anyway so it seemed like a worthwhile, if cutesy, reward for that.
But Patch 3.2 changed all that. It is now a blue item, with the bonus feature that it makes you cook faster.
How much faster?
To test it, I grabbed a stack of uncooked Worm Meat out of the guild bank to make some some Spiced Worm Burger. Just for comparison, I made one without the Chef’s Hat on. It takes about 2 seconds to make one Burger.
Then I put the hat on and tried again.
BAM! Burger done! Fractions of a second.
So, with another 18 burgers to be made, I clicked on “Create All.”
BAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAMBAM the burgers appeared my bag at machine gun speed. It was so amazing to watch that I grabbed another stack of uncooked meat and cooked it just to watch it go.
OK, so its a simple thing and probably shouldn’t entertain me as much as it does. But it is what it is – a frill thrown into the game that is now my favorite item.
