Cooking is very important in Genshin Impact especially in late game content as monsters become way harder to deal with, if you are not a whale and spam reset to get the best artifacts and weapons, food can offer you that extra strength to get passed that obstacle so how do you cook.
Cooking in Genshin Impact
Players are able to cook Food and process ingredients at stoves located in cities like Mondstadt and Liyue, at numerous campfires that can be found in the open world, as well as with the one-use time limited crafted consumable Adepti Seeker’s Stove. Campfires and stoves that are put out must be lit by Pyro in order to cook. Anemo, Cryo, Electro, Geo and Hydro effects, including rainy weather, (due to Swirl, Melt, Overloaded, Crystallize and Vaporize, respectively) can extinguish both campfires and stoves, preventing cooking.
Some characters have special passive Talents that give them a chance to double the output received when they are the character selected and perform a perfect cook. Characters also have a specific character linked special dish they have a 20% chance to obtain while cooking a specific dish when they are the character selected.
So far, the Raiden Shogun is the only character that is unable to cook.
How to Cook Special Dishes
While cooking, you may open the character selection to select a character that can make a special dish.
Characters’ special dishes are of an even higher quality than Delicious dishes, giving even higher bonuses/stats when eaten, making them desirable.
Special dishes have a low chance of being made through both automatic and manual cooking. This chance also applies to Normal and even Suspicious variants of the recipe. Thus, it is possible to get Special Dishes even when failing manual cooking.
How to Cook
