Cooking Basics Guide - Bosses, Fashion, Vendors, and more!

This is a guide detailing all the ins and outs of cooking. This will get you started cooking and familiarized with all the NPCs.

What is it?

  • Cooking is the new skill introduced in the Celtic Heroes Food of the Gods update on November 7, 2017. 
  • This skill allows you to cook food that, when eaten, instantly replenishes health, energy, or offers a stat boost (examples: damage boost, stat boost, hp/energy regen).
  • As you cook higher level recipes, the food you cook will give more of a bonus.
  • Food that gives a stat bonus lasts for 5 minutes, and the effects are cancelled upon death.

Is there a Leveling Guide?

Yes there is! Click here to see a complete leveling guide from level 1 to 170, which takes you to the end of the cooking quest chain.

The Ability Bar Explained

The cooking ability bar has 3 sections
What is it? What does it let you do? How do you increase it?
Cooking Lvl The level of experience you have in cooking Cook higher level food. Successfully cook food. Do not burn it.
Proficiency The amount of ability you have in cooking food Not burn food as often. Successfully cook food. Do not burn it.
Mastery A critical success in cooking Cook exquisite food more often. Cook exquisite food.
  • Using a Knowledge elixir will make you gain Cooking XP faster
  • Using a Wisdom elixir will make you gain Cooking Proficiency faster
  • Using a Cooking Extract will make you gain Cooking Mastery faster

What do you mean I can burn my food?

Don't worry! Although there is a chance to ruin your food (which makes it inedible), there is also a chance of a critical success. As stated above, the cooking proficiency ability lowers the chance of burning our food, and the cooking mastery ability raises the chance of getting a success result above normal.
The table below shows the types of successes you can get while cooking food.
Result Type Stat boost Stats Example using Bara Brith
Burnt Fail None None
Normal Success Normal + 96 Dmg, +80 HP regen per tick
Exquisite Critical Success 1.5 x Normal + 144 Dmg, +120 HP regen per tick
Perfected Rare Success 2.0 x Normal +192  Dmg, +160 HP regen per tick

Where do I start cooking?

Cooking takes place in the tavern. There are ovens in the kitchen that you will cook at.
Start at Gideon Ramsford. He is the cooking quest giver. He will get you started cooking, and he will send you in search of cooking ingredients.

Cooking Ingredients?

You need to gather ingredients to cook food. What ingredients you need depend on the recipe that you're cooking. The recipes come from cooking quests, buying from a vendor, and Cooking Bosses. This is a list of all the ingredients that you need to go from level 1-100.

Where do I get these ingredients?

Oats, barley, wheat, and lentils are free. You can find them in the fields by Highshore Village.
There are other supplemental ingredients you can buy from vendors.

  • When your food burns, you receive no experience or ability points from cooking it, and you cannot eat it.
  • You buy special ingredients from the recipe trader Delia Dermont at the tavern bar
  • Your recipes start out needed Garnet Extract, and as you get more difficult recipes the type of extract you need will increase. See your recipe for its requirements.
  • Extracts DOUBLE the chance of creating exquisite food.
