You guys are my very last resource, how does that make you feel?


Probably making us feel like not helping you too much.
I just tested it out ingame and the patterns are a 100% drop chance from gou lai caches BUT it is bugged atm and you have to be *****525 illustrious grand master cooking***** to get them. Your best bet is open up a GM ticket ingame and when enough of us complain to blizz about it they will fix it.
P.S. I used 3 keys and got 3 different recipes, one for every key of course.
525 exactly or 525 and above?
Cause i'm 600 and no drops at all.
Used a key with every chest in the room once i cleared room. Mats, rep tokens etc. etc. not 1 frikken recipe

They are not 100% (opened 4 chests, got only 2 recipes) from every chest you open. But yes, it is bugged right now and you have to be either 525/525 or 525/600 for them to drop. I had to level my monk's cooking to 525 to get them to drop, but they are soulbound ofc :l

5.4 Vale of Eternal Blossom Recipes
These drop from mobs in Vale of Eternal Blossoms and Ancient Guo-Lai Cache. However, this currently seems bugged and requires you to be 525 skill without Zen Master Cook:
Also haven't seen a skyshard, yet, but my luck has always been rubbish with those.


I still only have 3 on one server and 2 on another.
Dropped for me yesterday. I just happened to have my cooking at exactly 525.

The recipes require level 600.

I got farmers delight, mango ice, fluffy silkfeather omelet.

I better go back for more before my skill advances..
The Noodles recipe is from a quest line on the timeless isle Quest: The Lost Secret of The Secret Ingredient. Once you have the quest you can run the Temple of the Jade Serpent Dungeon. I have the quest but I haven't done it yet.

Insult... insult... insult... GIVE ME ANSWER NOW!


This
Hotfixed yesterday according to the notes. I farmed my keys waiting for it to get fixed so as soon as the servers are up I should be able to get them....
hotfixed on the 16th and my akis recipe addon shows them all dropping in the vale.
The hotfix seems to have worked. I got 4 of the recipes out of 5 or 6 Guo-Lai caches last night with 600 cooking.
Just to let you know, I have found 3 recipes from the guo-lai caches. I was in the room with the dragon past the hall of tiles. hope this helps.
Since the hotfix, I estimate that I've gone through about 25 keys so far. Have found 5 of the 6 recipes and still looking for the final one. Don't start looking for these and think you're going to done after just 6 keys.
I just got all four cooking recipes from inside Guo-Lai Vault from the caches after looting the keys. I took looting 7 keys to get all four recipes. I did this on my warrior who has 600 cooking and maxed on all the way's.
I have gotten all the recipes on this character and here is what I've learned: KEEP TRACK OF WHAT CHESTS YOU OPEN.

Seriously, the recipes are 100% drop from the Ancient Guo-Lai Caches BUT they are in specific chests spread between 2 rooms; one behind the dragon in the crypt opposite the door and one in Crumbling Halls. I wasted 20+ keys trying to get Spiced Blossom Soup before I started trying each chest and got it in 2. Easiest way to get them is just go between the rooms cleaning out all the mogu and opening each chest you haven't yet tried until you get all the recipes.
