How to cook in Tower of Fantasy
Find all the Scenic Point locations
Looking for all the Tower of Fantasy Scenic Point locations then we them all here, with maps, details and more
Cooking food in Tower of fantasy requires a cooking pot. No surprises there. However, it can be hard to find one. What you need to do is open your map and make sure the “Cooking Pot” visibility is turned on (see the small settings icon at the top of the screen). This will display all nearby cooking pots.
Note that the cooking pot locations only pop up if you zoom in (about 70%). If you still don’t see a cooking location, teleport to a larger settlement and try again. Tower of Fantasy cooking pots look like little robots decorated with a bright yellow smiley face.
The cooking process itself is quite simple; press the dish you want on the left side of the screen, and then choose “cooking”. No minigame involved. The cooking tab will also show you the ingredients.
How to unlock recipes in Tower of Fantasy
Here’s where it gets tricky: unlocking recipes in Tower of Fantasy depends on both the ingredients and success rate. First, go the “Creation” tab at the Cooking Pot station. You can throw up to five different ingredients together in the hopes of unlocking a new recipe. However, each ingredient adds no more than 7% to the total success rate, meaning that even if you have the correct ingredients to unlock an unknown recipe, you only have a small chance of success.
It's therefore very important to increase the success rate by adding extra ingredients. You can add more of the same type, or common ones (unrelated to the recipe). Be careful though; the latter will increase the success rate, but it may result in a basic dish instead of the one you wanted.
For example, the ingredients in the picture have a chance of unlocking a Super Rare recipe with Hazelnut as one of the ingredients, but it can also result in a basic stew.
Tower of Fantasy food types
Different foods come with different effects. Here’s an overview of Tower of Fantasy food effects:
- HP recovery: immediately restores a certain percentage and fixed amount of health.
- Satiety recovery: like a normal HP boost, it increases healing. However, Satiety determines the rate at which the character restores HP outside of combat. You can check your Satiety meter on the left side of the HP bar.
- Endurance boost: recovers stamina.
- Attack boost: increases attack power.
- Resistance boost: increases resistance to certain types of attack.
