Players can cook by opening the Note Menu and choosing one of the recipes the Recipe tab. A recipe can require anywhere from 2-8 ingredients. Recipes are found via interactions with NPC's in the game including talking, completing quests, and purchasing from vendors.
Cooking can generate the following types of dish:
Rean Schwarzer has an average skill at cooking. To increase the likelyhood of getting a certain type of dish, the player (Rean) must cook with another member of Class VII. Each member's cooking skill for a given recipe is depicted with an emoji:
|Unique||Very likely to produce a unique dish|
|Great||Very likely to produce a superb dish|
|Good||Reasonably likely to produce a superb dish|
|Average||Reasonably likely to produce a regular dish|
|Bad||Reasonably likely to produce a peculiar dish|
Note: For each recipe, there is only one individual who is skilled at cooking the "unique" dish. That person is initially displayed as having "great" skill; they are only revealed as "uniquely" skilled after the player (Rean) successfully cooks the unique dish with that person.
Consuming food (except Attack dishes) provides bonuses such as:
- Recover HP
- Restore EP
- Cure [Effect]
Attack dishes can be used as single-use attacks.
