Cooking Calculators, Price Guides, and More

As my kin’s official chef, I am always stocking our kin chest with foods of various levels and farming ingredients. As any cook will tell you, this is expensive work! So to make sure I have the funds for any amount of food I want to make I utilize a variety of sources. So here is a set of very useful cooking guides:

Cookbook and Price Guide

Advantages:

  • Color coordinated by tier
  • Shows the stats given by each food
  • Shows how much silver you will need to make each for a stack or individually

Drawbacks:

  • Personally, I’m not a fan of having to look through a spread sheet everytime I want to make something and I just am not a fan of the way it is laid out, however this is just me personally, I know other people love this guide
  • Doesn’t include Rep food

Cooking 101

Advantages:

  • Completely up to date
  • Gives the time that each stat lasts

Drawbacks:

  • Again, I really just don’t like spreadsheets or the way this is laid out. It is confusing to me, but I think maybe spreadsheets just aren’t my thing…

And my favorite:

Crafting Calculator (This actually works for all crafting professions, not just cooking)

Advantages:

  • A layout I actually really really like!
  • You can tell it how much of anything you want to make in a crafting session and it will tell you how much of each ingredient you need, whether you farm it or buy it and how much each will cost you
  • Give you a list you can print off with check boxes you can mark off as you go along

Drawbacks:

  • Prices are not always accurate
  • Not up to date
  • Creator has given up on this project and unfortunately will not be updating it any further, which is a shame
