Hot food cooking
- To raise this skill, the player should start out with a simpler dish like a stew or casserole. After having reached about 10-15 HFC skill the player can move on to creating a meal.
- To gain skill in HFC you should try to keep the difficulty of the dish within a range of +/-10 from your skill. That means that if you have 1 hfc you should not aim to make a dish of higher difficulty than 11. Likewise if you have 34 hfc you can gain skill from food with a difficulty of 24 as well as 44. A +/- range of 5 seems to help to get the optimal skillgain
- After placing the ingredients in your cooking utensil you can examine it to find out what it will become and what the difficulty of the dish is
- The type of fireplace you use to cook your food in has an impact on the difficulty:
- An oven adds 0 difficulty.
- A campfire adds 5x(U-1) where U is the number of unique ingredients.
- Forge adds 10x(U-1) where U is the number of unique ingredients.
- Some items can be added to raise the difficulty, for example leather pieces, small nails and coins (they will not be consumed)
NB: Rumours have circulated that you will not gain any hfc skill if you leave the forge/oven/campfire. This has been proven wrong. You do not have to stand shackled to the heat source.
