I had been “Master of the Ways” for a long time before I read up on what to do afterwards. To be honest, after I had grinded all the achievements and Best Friends with all Halfhill characters, I was so pleased to be done with dailies I didn’t fancy any more!
However, my curiosity got the better of me, so I traded 50 of my hard earned cooking rewards for my Cooking School Bell, which summons this little guy:
Once you have your Bell, Nomi will offer you one daily quest a day. Luckily, these are exceptionally easy and all materials for them can be bought from the vendor in Halfhill. There are 5 lessons in total that you must teach him, each giving rep each day so each must be done multiple times just like the others in Halfhill:
Lesson 1: Sliced Peaches – Stranger
Lesson 2: Instant Noodles – Pal
Lesson 3: Toasted Fish Jerky – Buddy
Lesson 4: Dried Needle Mushrooms – Friend
Lesson 5: Pounded Rice Cake – Good Friend
…and upon completion you get the achievement: Now I Am The Master. You also get to keep what he cooks, which I found really useful for buff food.
Once he reaches exalted, he gives you a daily quest:
In your bag of goodies, you get an Ironpaw token plus some food: from banquets to level 300 buff food. It’ll take you a while to earn back your initial investment, but I think it’s definitely worth it – for the achievement points if anything else. It’s such an easy grind really, takes 3minutes a day.
Besides, he’s kind of cute…!
