Hey everyone, LastOne here with our 7th video on the Crafting Leveling series, in this one I’ll be sharing my favorite way to level up cooking, from zero to 50, Let’s go! To level up cooking we’ll be using the Kitchen station, and the leveling process is very simple, first of all you need to already be level 1 cooking, but if you did the game initial quests, on the beach, you should already have cooked at least one Light Ration recipe and that’s all you need to reach level 1 and unlock the recipe we will need, the Travel Ration. If we check the Travel Ration recipe you will notice something interesting, and that’s the fact that you can use many different resources as both primary and secondary ingredients.
So, out of the options that we have for primary ingredient the ones that I like to use are either Carrot, , Corn or Squash. Mainly because they are very easy to find in high quantities on farms around most settlements.
Like near First Light, Monarchs Windsward, and Everfall. As secondary ingredient, you can use even more options, 141 according to nwdb.info, but the one I prefer, by far, is Honey. Mostly because honey can be found in huge quantities near Kutlass Keys, and each of these Honey Trees will drop you from 11 to 40+ Honey, so in a single gathering run, you will probably stockpile enough for an entire week of cooking. So, considering you are level 1, in order to reach level 50 you will need another 3447 experience, since each Travel Ration gives you 24 xp, you will need to craft 144 of them, and for that you will need: 144 of any combination of Carrot, Corn, Squash, or any other item on that list really.
and 144 Honey. A note here, if you prefer to diversify a little bit, once you get to level 2, you can also craft some of the Energizing Travel Ration, that gives you mana instead of health.
The recipe and the experience are exactly the same, so it’s totally up to you. once you have all the required ingredients, you just go to the cooking station, and craft 144 meals, either all Travel Rations or a mix of that and Energizing Travel Rations. And there you, go level 50 cooking!
