Cooking

Cooking Pot user interface with Recipes menu expanded

Cooking involves combining food ingredients in a Cooking Pot.pngCooking Pot to create food dishes that give significantly improved buffs.

Basics[edit]

Generally, a player will place a Cooking Pot on the ground, then interact with it to bring up its user interface. Suitable ingredients can be moved from player's general inventory into either slot. Order of ingredients is not important, but each slot requires at least one item. Robot Arms can also be used to automatically insert ingredient items into a pot.

The ingredients are automatically processed for 10 seconds per pair, creating one cooked food dish in the pot's output slot. This item's identity is uniquely specified by the combination of ingredients used. Cooked food items can only be stacked with others that include identical ingredients. Later on, dishes may also be further split by up to 3 different rarities, because this changes the buff stats from consuming them.

Combining Ingredients[edit]

Each ingredient has hidden effects to determine the result of a cooking, as shown in the table below. These effects are different than the ingredient's effects when eaten individually, and are not shown in-game. To calculate the final result:

  • Combine the effects of both ingredients together
  • Permanent max health boosts are additive, you can never lose any of them by cooking
  • Any other effects are not additive, only the one with highest value is used

The following skills will change your food effect values retroactively:

Example for cooking heart berry and blue cave guppy, cells in blue are the ones used for the result:

+19 food +21 food +21 food
+2.8 health every sec for 20 sec +2.2 health every sec for 20 sec +2.8 health every sec for 20 sec
+5% dodge chance for 5 min +5% dodge chance for 5 min
+25 max health for 5 min +25 max health for 5 min

Extra food, rarity, and bonus stats[edit]

Each cooking skill level increases your chance for an extra cooked food item by 0.2%, for up to 20% chance at level 100. This extra food is calculated when a player takes food out of a cooking pot. It is calculated independently per item removed.

The Master chef talent adds a chance to increase each extra cooked food item's rarity by one tier:

  • If both ingredients are not golden or legendary, then the cooked food will be regular, with a chance to become rare
  • If at least one ingredient is golden or legendary, then the cooked food will be rare, with a chance to become epic

The stats for rare food are 25% higher than the regular food, before rounding, while epic food has 50% higher stats. If both ingredients are golden or legendary, it will add another multiplicative bonus of 15% higher stats.

Note:

  • Cooking rare or epic food will not record its recipe in the recipe book
  • Permanent max health boosts are not modified by increased tier or golden bonus
  • Shiny Larva Meat is not a golden ingredient

Skill tree[edit]

Ingredients[edit]

Food and health regeneration are generic effects that are shared by most cooked food. For clarity, any other effects are shown in green.

The game is inconsistent in rounding values that end with .5, or .05 on certain effects. It will sometimes round up or round down. All values that end with that are listed as is, without any rounding, in the table below.
