Latest from Live Cooking, By Eldelary (Cooking Sponsors are: Joshiki, Serabim, Eldelary and Ashlynmae <--(Aenowyn) Short version for non-crafters: Send us ground grain and anything else you don't need. Long Version: Cooking has buffs for everyone. There are two common types of food, bread for health regen and the one I'm going to be leveling up on, the mana regen soups. Other buffs are available through cooking, such as an increase in health for 30 minutes. If you require something that is within my ability to make, please let me know. I've done some calculations. To get to 20,000 cooking (which is the requirement for level 50 soups) I'm going to have to burn through buttloads of ground grain (think about 150,000 grains), barley and pumpkins. That should make the level 30 mana regen soups. I planted over 500 rye plants with Cyndir last night, to get me started. I then need to use the soups from the previous levels to make the higher soups, using (yep, you guessed it) 30 more ground grain per soup + rosemary and then JuJube fruit for the level 50 soup (hearty soup).It turns out I'm going to need about 180 ground grain per 10 hearty soups. Hopefully by the end of this process, I'm going to have MEGA-LOADS of soup for all So, if you want to help a sponsored cook, send them Ground Grain! IF you have anything you don't need, that can be used for cooking, please also send it our way!
