Cooking is a new feature that allows Joker to combine ingredients to concoct meals. Consuming a meal yields stat boosts which will be beneficial for tougher battles. While waiting for an impending Jail infiltration, stock up on ingredients for later use.
What is Cooking?
In the hideout, Joker can whip up a meal using ingredients found in your travels. Check your inventory and combine various ingredients to start cooking.
How to get started
Cooking requires collecting the necessary ingredients and recipes. So long as you progress in the main story, you’ll start unlocking more dishes. Take the time to visit local shops to purchase other recipes. To make the most out of your trip, you can also opt to stockpile ingredients on each visit as well.
Another thing to keep in mind is that ingredients have limited stocks. Avoid frequent trips and purchase all the stocks. If you’re planning to stay for a while, the stocks replenish the following day so you can keep buying more.
Eating cooked food
Similar to recovery items, having a meal restores the character’s HP and SP. The unique trait with cooked food is that they also grant a temporary boost in stats. Take the time to reap the benefits of eating cooked meals before heading out to enhance your combat abilities.
Expand your knowledge
The cooking mastery goes up when you acquire more recipes. Head out and visit shops or join some events and you might just unlock a new recipe for your collection.
Conserving SP is quite the challenge when you’re taking some infiltration missions left and right. Some dishes offer HP recovery but given that there are many ways to go around it, you’re better off focusing on SP-oriented dishes.
Other dishes that come in handy are composed of those that also provide additional effects like Matarukaja.
