Cooking byproducts / life skill medals?

Recommended Posts

Dear bdx staff,

There was a claim by a few of our guild members that they weren't getting any byproducts from cooking. Stuff like "dish with poorly prepared ingredients".

I didn't have any spare time to cook since I joined late and prepared for the nodewar (gg @Paddy_Whack for dat solo lol) BUT I do remember that the first beta had those byproducts cause I basically just cooked after maxing out. 

These byproducts supply us with cooking exp / milk (important) / beer / silver and CP (SUPER IMPORTANT). Will we be getting them on release?

Also, this probably has been asked before but will we get medals too on release? Didnt see em in 2nd beta but was in first.

 

Cheers

As Life Skill Medals I would be shocked to not see these Day 1. (IF they do not put them in Day 1, first patch would bring them)

Dish with poorly prepared ingredients - I've got a suspicion that they are gated behind cooking level. On PC every time I leveled cooking I had a Canape outfit, +3 clothes, 1 second cook time, and about 30-60% of life/cooking exp buffs up. That said I normally skipped over Beginner - Apprentice in one station and into skilled - professional with in a few cooking stations. So I didn't spend a lot of time cooking on lower levels because of cook time and exp. Early on in release and in beta we don't have access to a 1 second cook time, it's impossible, so I feel with in a few days after launch as we can gather and get materials to slowly work our way into Skilled + cooking or alchemy we will see the illusive CP turn-ins return. 

I did check Alejandro Farm during the beta myself, the NPC is in the game to turn in the Dish, with the option to turn dishes in.  I will be pushing for this over the first 72 hours at release so I can keep you updated if we do not get a response from the CMs before then.

From what I have been told:

Some by-products were removed for early game balance and will be integrated back into the tables at a later date.

@[CM]Shirna he's 100% correct, Kamasylve is 250 CP+ region, and you are bringing it within 6 months (about) from release. I would try getting this added to one of the first major patches. 

Sorry to rib you about balance but you have enhanced gear dropping in release; cooking for CP isn't as bad for early game.

Something to remember cooking is slow in early game, we wont be able to achieve 1 second cook times for a while. Spamming cooking early on doesn't yield very good result considering the average advanced station gives about 150-175 dishes of poorly prepared ingredients.

Honestly wont allow me down too much wont be tons to invest in right away.

Honestly, I would just got business as usual, right now I have 250,000 wheat sitting in Heidel on my PC account. With in a few days i could process enough wheat to flour to spam cook for days. Fruits are your bottle neck if you don't buy them. If you dont want to spend the extra money then maybe pickup farming and gather fruits till the CP patch comes for cooking.

I know it wont be long probably will come with in the first month or so. 

 

If you need beer cook it, if you want the cooking level cook, if you want to cook for money go right ahead. don't let one dish hold you back. It won't take long to catch up.
