    Tansie:

    Thanks so much for your response. I did find that one dried fish and one dried seafood work.

    I really appreciate all you do <3.

    @Islarose @felitzia

    For some reason when we updated the website yesterday the old recipe list made it’s way back. Sorry for the confusion! The recipe should work now and Elixir of Time is back on the list too.

    I don’t see Elixir of Time on the list.
    10% Life XP for 5 min. Combine 3 with blue reagent for 15 minute party elixir.

    Lean Meat Salad fails with the posted recipe at artisan 10 about 1/3 of the time. Not sure which ingredient combination will give 100%.

    @yoda69 This has been fixed.

    @Arafal I’ve looked into this one and it seems the success rate is higher if you use two different types of dried seafood, but it is still possible to use other seafood. I’ve changed the recipe to reflect this. Just make sure you are using seafood and not fish. Seafood can be: Cuttlefish, Squid, Terrapin, Jellyfish, Crawfish, Crab, Octopus, Starfish, Shellfish or Seahorse.

    Also you can trade in the byproduct Strongly Seasoned Dish for Milk. 🙂

    Valencian Special should have date palm wine instead of just date palms

    Steamed Seafood seems to require octopus or squid to succeed. I failed with 4x other dried fish, but succeeded with 2x dried octopus and 2x other. No squid on market to try…

    Elixer of Human Hunt recipe fails, I have tried many combinations and not sure if it did ever work, but it is broken now anyway. If anyone knows what works now I would be very appreciative.

    HEADS UP ON ALCHEMY RECIPE!!!!

    The recipe for elixir of sky is wrong. It’s supposed to have trace of ascension x4, not x3

    Imperial Cooking and Alchemy Box sections are now up-to-date with EU/NA.

    All other corrections in the comments have been made and we are working on new tables to make everything easier to understand.

    Trade packages are outdated for NA/EU. Rely on Dulfy instead.

    The Elixir of Detection requires 3 Trace of Savagery, not 2.

    Steak correction: No Pepper needed at all, and only 2 Salt, not 3.

    Sorry, my last message was supposed to say for Meat SOUP, not Stew!

  • Profile photo of Perkus
    Jul 15, 2016 @ 10:02 am

    Another correction: Meat Stew needs only 1 pepper, not 3, and only 4 Mineral Water, not 5. That’s what the quest for it says, and it works.

    Correction: Seafood Mushroom Salad requires only 1 mushroom, you show 3. The quest “Combination of Seafood and Mushrooms” that gives it specified 1 Fortune Teller Mushroom (white), and I made it using a 1 Dwarf Mushroom (white).

    Also I have issues with cooking fish:

    1) I’d prefer to sea “1 Fish”, or “1 Seafood” everywhere instead of “2 Dried Fish”, and “2 Dried Seafood” in all the recipes. Beginners are more likely to be using fresh catch anyway. Just mention at the top that you can substitute 2 dried for 1 live fish/seafood.

    2) I failed my first attempt at Good Feed when I used 1 Starfish (white) as the fish portion. I succeeded on the second attempt with a green fish. The quest as given mentioned a green fish of some sort (no longer have it to specify). It seems that there are 2 types of “fish” caught, actual “Fish” and what you call “Seafood”. The game refers to it as “Mollusks and Crustaceans” at one point. I didn’t know this until the recipe failed. I guess it needs to be made clearer somewhere that these are 2 different things, and perhaps even a table of which “fish” are not actually fish, but seafood. I now assume it would have worked with a white fish even though the quest mentioned a green.

    3) Since fish quality can vary, does fish quality ever matter for recipes? If a quest mentioned a green fish, can you use an equal amount of white fish, or do you have to then use the “substitute more a lesser tier” rule? If so, then we need an indication of what tier of fish the recipe calls for, they’re currently all the same, and colored blue, which is in itself confusing, as that is a quality tier colour.

    Otherwise, thanks for the useful data!

    Essence of Crimson Flame is wrong. I failed the recipe, and checked bddatabase.. it’s Trace of Ascension.
