    SUMMARY

    Chefs provide food and drinks for a wide variety of occasions. Food and drink provide buffs to various Attributes and will fill part of the respective food and drink meters, which slowly digest (decay) to allow more food and drink to be consumed. Whether you are Crafting, PvP'ing, farming, or harvesting - foods are an incredibly important aspect of the end game and are always in demand.

    Chef can be particularly tricky due to reliance on Flora resource that not many other Professions utilize as well as a variety of resource quality combinations. In addition, a Chef needs a good Bio Engineer to help craft top-end goods.

    The following guide provides a relatively straightforward way to get from notice to master.
    The resources do not need to be of high quality. Find or harvest the cheapest you can.

    Key Resources


    Resource Types

    • Chef will require a wide variety of resources, primarily focused on Flora. This in itself is tricky because not many other Professions utilize flora and keeping up with ~150 different varietals of planet-specific resources is a daunting task.

    Qualities & Experimentation

    • OQ/FL (Flavor - Duration of Food)
    • OQ/PE (Nutrition - Effect of Food)
    • PE/DR (Quantity)
    • OQ/DR (Filling)




    ABOUT FOOD & DRINK

    Food provides temporary buffs to your stats. These can be modifiers to your HAM or a wide assortment of skills.

    Filling

    Characters have separate food & drink filling bars on your Character Sheet (c). Each bar goes up to 100 and is emptied over the course of 30 minutes (3-1/2 fill per minute). Consumed food & drink fills up your filling bar and cannot go over 100.

    Stacking

    Food and drink with the same stat buffs cannot be stacked. Rather, whatever you eat or drink last will replace the previous food.

    For example, Kiwik Clusjo Swirl and Caf both have a Mind Regeneration buff and therefore cannot be used at the same time.



    HOW IT WORKS



    Food & Drink

    • Various foods will require sub-components
    • Drinks utilize containers (in various sizes)
    • Additives from Bio-Engineer enhance certain aspects of the food

    ADVANCED TECHNIQUES


    Crafting Suit

    • Suggest crafting suit with +Food Experimentation as well as +Artisan Experimentation (if you are Master Artisan for those foods).

    Master Artisan (25 Exp Pts)

    • Many utilized foods are actually in the Artisan skill tree and utilize Artisan Experimentation, of which you can get many more than 12 experimentation points for by learning other Novice crafting Professions.
    • Cap for Master Artisan is 25 experimentation points by having a crafting suit + having a selection of Novice Armorsmith, Architect, Chef, Tailor, and Shipwright

    Casks

    • Casks are the most efficient for making drinks due to the 3x quantity multiplier
    • These will require crafted Trim from a Tailor, so find a friend!

    Factory Runs

    • Chef will require many factory runs for sub-components. Recommend to go ahead and opt for the full 1k runs to make things in mass quantities
    • Utilize the Factory Speed buff from Entertainers to gain the +25% bonus while your toon is online

    Food Additives
