“SPOILER” WARNING: A lot of the joys of Cooking (and Guild Wars 2 in general) come from discovering stuff for yourself. Cooking is a fun craft on its own, but this guide has tried to minimize the effort, cost and bag space required to quickly grind Cooking to 400.

I haven’t included the exact number of materials required as it varies per person, depending on luck (bonus experience on “criticals”), or if you’re using a Craft Booster. This guide assumes you know how Renown Hearts and karma work, and that you already know how crafting in general works. For a great video tutorial on crafting basics please visit Enigmius’ Guide.

Please note that there are two different tabs in your crafting interface, a Hammer symbol for recipes you already know (inluding the ones that will unlock for free), and an Anvil symbol used to Discover new recipes. In the event you cannot discover a specific recipe mentioned below, chances are you already received it for free when reaching the numbered skill level. Please check your recipes under the Hammer tab.
