Lost Ark Cooking Guide

Recommended Posts

Finding all of the cooking collectibles in Lost Ark North Vern will take some patience, some exploration, and some luck.

The Lost Ark's Adventurer's Book is one of the many collection systems that gets in-depth once you start digging into it. One of the main features of the book is the cooking ingredients, the complexity of which is spread across (and contained within) several of the game's continents. Some of these recipes will also make you wonder how healthy these people were eating.

While the North Vern cookery collection isn't necessarily the most difficult in the game, some of them are certainly annoying. And by checking these tasks off your collection list, you can spend some time on the first tier of scrappy content while you work your way up to the second tier.

That's okay, because you don't have to take the Vern Anniversary Spirits to the chef at Vern Castle; just click on them to drink them and get credit.

The recipe is also relatively simple as it only requires a single ingredient: wine. The name is a little misleading as this ingredient is not found in the Barranca Mountains but in the Pana Forest, in the exact location mentioned above, just three stops east of the Vine Forest.

However, there are a few small monsters nearby that you should kill carefully so you can plunder the vines undisturbed. Then just take it to the cook in Vern Caste (Stelia) and ask her to make you a salad from the Balankar Range.

This recipe requires three different parts and is one of two lost ark items in this list controlled by the RNG. The first two parts, Proxima Lettuce and Proxima Root Nugget, are easy to craft: just go to Luigia, the merchant in Rania Village, and buy Proxima Stem and Proxima Root from her for 18,000 silver coins each, and leave You then make the lettuce or root nugget from the chef.

The RNG bits come from the third part of this recipe: Natural Proxima Skin. This item can be dropped by the World Chief - or the Field Chief in game - Proxima. You can only kill him once a day in the Forest of Verne and you need a minimum item level of 540 to get the loot. Once you have the skin, you mix it up with the Proxima Salad and Proxima Root Nugget at the Chef's, and you have the Proxima course meal.

This is the second recipe controlled by RNG. For this you have to combine three different cocktails: a dubious cocktail, a spicy cocktail and a tasty cocktail.

To get these very appetizing drinks you have to go to Joo Hye, the food vendor in Castle Vern and if you are lucky buy a truckload of fresh cocktails (15 cheap lost ark gold each) because if you drink them you will have the chance to get one of the three cocktails mentioned above. If you got all three, you can create harmony at the chef.

Leprechaun Fish Soup

This recipe is easy to follow as it only requires two different ingredients, both of which can be found near Pana Forest.

The location of the first Unknown Soup is in the left half of the image (it's the hanging cauldron), while the location of the second goblin fish is in the right half (right next to the bag of apples or tomatoes or whatever). With these two items, the chef of Castle Vern can prepare a very unappetizing goblin fish soup.
