Cooking is used to turn raw fish into edible food. Although produce such as Potatoes harvested while Farming can be used as food, cooked fish are substantially stronger, with even relatively low level fish such as Lobsters healing more than Carrots, the strongest crops.
Cooking food normally takes 3 seconds. Purchasing the Art of Control god upgrade reduces this time by 20% to 2.4 seconds.
By default, you will receive one cooked fish for each successful cooking action. The chance to double the amount of food cooked starts at 0% and can be increased in several ways:
- The Generous Cook Potion increases the chance to double food by +10-50%, depending on tier.
- Aorpheat's Signet Ring increases the chance to double food by +10%.
- Cris increases the chance to double food by +5%.
- The 25% Mastery Pool Checkpoint increases the chance to double food by +5%.
The bonuses stack additively. For example, a player wearing Aorpheat's Signet Ring and using Generous Cook Potion IV with Cris unlocked while the 25% Mastery Pool Checkpoint is active will have a 70% chance to receive two fish instead of one.
There are two chances to burn food while cooking: The first is a 30% chance to burn food which can be reduced via Mastery. The second is a 1% chance that can only be removed by the Cooking Skillcape or Cooking Gloves.
If food is burnt during cooking, the player will only receive 1XP. The Crown of Rhaelyx can still save materials from being consumed if food is burned, but the amount of burnt food cannot be doubled by Cris, Aorpheat's Signet Ring, or Generous Cook Potions.
Burnt food is inedible and can be sold from the bank for 1GP. Reaching cooking level 99 will unlock the Cooking Skillcape for purchase from the Shop. Food will never burn when the Cooking Skillcape is equipped.
