Re: Best way to level Cooking?
Find a farmer to help. With the ingredients they can farm leveling should be pretty easy and cheap. Oh I see you are on Landroval? Wellllllll ........ I just happen to have a farmer or three in that neighbourhood. Feel free to contact Phetchit, Mousebrand or Bookman in game or by mail. I'm sure we can work out a reasonable deal for some carrots and taters.
There are a few quests you will have to complete along the way of course.
