I was arranging some food items to see what got me a good success rate. Found a 4-ingredient combo with a good chance…and boom.
Apparently tactics work well in the kitchen, because Soren cooked up a 5* meal. Just don’t ask why everyone brought their mounts.
Something I noticed regarding success rates
Only certain combos of 3 or 4 net different dishes. If none are available for a combo, the success rate drops and Ingredient 3 (and 4) is an addon.
That explains why rates vary when three or four base ingredients are chosen. The former? 90 or 70. The latter? 80, 60, or 40.
…yeah, any GP article writer can use this post for a dining hall guide if they wish.
