I’ve had two people from my legion ask me this week about making Pepento Juice. To those of you not familiar with this food, it’s a drink that became available with the 4.0 patch. I have the recipe and when I relay the ingredients to anyone inquiring, most then immediately say “Never mind, I’ll go back to Drupa Cocktails” or some similar drink buff.
I don’t blame them honestly. The ingredients for the 4.0 cooking recipes are down right ridiculous. I mean, look at this:
But, but, BUT! I am quick to tell anyone and wanted to post this on here to remind y’all that there is an equivalent item for a recipe that became available back in patch 1.9: Kuvano Juice.
The recipe is the exact same for both factions, and is acquired from the Ordnance Quartermaster in Ingisson/Gelkmaros. All three ingredients are found in Taloc’s Hollow. The Kuvano is gathered, the Poisoned Taloc Leaf is a drop, and the Kuvano Oil can be purchased from an NPC inside the instance named Dorkin.
Granted, you may be able to buy these items off the broker if someone else has obtained them. Otherwise, you will need to run the instance. Note: most mobs in this instance are levels 51 and 52. I buy the leaves off the broker and go in the instance to gather the Kuvano and buy Kuvano Oil when necessary.
The Kuvano nodes are found in the following locations:

Each run nets me 10 Kuvano. I have 3 toons that are high enough to run this instance and gather the items; if done daily, I could get 210 Kuvano per week. :)
To get to Dorkin to buy Kuvano Oil, kill the named mob Neith to get Dorkin’s Pocket Knife.
Then go to the locked door hidden behind the waterfall to enter Dorkin’s Nook:
So there ya go, an alternative to a 4.0 drink buff that’s easier to get/make. ^_^
