With the addition of the cooking system, players can cook up various combinations of items to boost their stats temporarily. When a cooking item is eaten, HP and SP are recovered by a certain amount and stats increase by a certain amount. The higher the grade of cooking item consumed, the greater the stat boost. When consumed, stats will increase for 20 minutes, and stack with existing support skills (such as blessing, increase agility, etc).

If several food items of the same type (Stat) are consumed, the highest level one takes precedence. Therefore, if a lower level food item is consumed while a higher level one is active, the low level one is ignored.

To make cooking items, a cooking kit is needed. The better it is, the higher the success to create an item. A cookbook (the recipes) of the correct level is also needed. Recipes exist for level 1-10 cooking items. The required items as listed in the recipe must also be obtained.

Bonus from cooked food (and item mall food depending on server) is lost if a character dies while still under the effects of the food item.

When the cooking kit is double clicked, it will bring up a list of possible dishes that can be created with the items and recipes (cookbooks) in a player's inventory. However just like the blacksmith hammer during weapon creation, the cooking kit is consumed during cooking. Success rate is affected by DEX and LUK, also higher level of recipes decreases success rate, the cooking set used will also affect success rate, and finally the more food you cook will give a small boost in success rate.


Base Level: 50
Item(s) (Consumed): Food Creation Items
Item(s) (Not Consumed): 1 Chef Hat (Must be able to equip it)
Quest Reward(s): Access to level 1-5 Cookbooks
Purchasable Outdoor/Home Cooking Kits

1. Enter the Prontera castle (located top center prontera). Inside, in the basement off to the left, you should find 3 NPCs, "Charles Orleans", "Girl holding a cat", and "Madeleine Chu".

Madeleine Chu will give you the quest. Once you complete the quest, he will sell you cooking items. Charles Orleans will teach you about cooking. Once you complete the quest, he will lend you cooking manuals.

2. Talk to Madeleine Chu.

Out of the three options it gives you, chose "I want to learn how to be a cook". Madeleine will ask you to speak to her master. In order to show your enthusiasm, you will be asked to wear a cook hat.

3. Wearing the cook hat, talk to Charles. After talking to him, he will chose a random level 1 food to make. He'll tell you the ingredients for this food, and you'll need to bring them to him.

4. After bringing him the required items, you'll make your first food item together. He'll give you the food item that was created, but you may want to hold onto it for later.

5. After you're done making the food, return to Madeleine. Madeleine will let you have his copy of the Level 1 Cookbook, and give you 10 Outdoor Cooking Sets.

6. Now that you have a Level 1 Cookbook, you'll be able to make food items on your own now. Madeleine will sell you Outdoor Cooking Sets for 500z, but still won't sell you any Home Cooking Sets.

This time, you will need to ask them if they want to see your cooking. You will be asked to create one of each kind of level 1 food (Look in your cookbook for recipies).

You can buy Bag of Grain in Louyang (255,123) and Cooking Oil in Juno (133,171); see Cooking for more information.

7. Once you're done, bring Madeleine your foods that you've made. You can use the one you created with Charles as one of these foods. Madeleine will package these foods in a "Bundle of Food", and you'll need to bring it to Payon.

8. Deliver the bundle of food to Servant in Payon (208, 127), and select the option "Actually, Madeleine sent me...".

9. Return to the Prontera cooks. Madeleine will give you 10 Home Cooking Sets. At this point, Madeleine will allow you to buy Home Cooking Sets for 1000z. They're a bit pricier than regular cooking sets, but the bonus success makes it more useful.

10. Talk to Charles once again. Charles will now let you use his cookbooks if you help him with some items he needs.

The quest is complete at this point. If you want access to higher level sets or cookbooks, you'll have to find them from monsters.


Ingredients in purple can be purchased from NPCs.
