Players are initially only able to learn and craft recipes that require a cooking skill of 300 or less, which limits a player to only eight recipes. When a player reaches a cooking skill of 500 they are able to take an Artisan Test which, once completed, will enable a player to learn and craft more advanced level recipes.
Cooking Guide Edit
The following is a quick guide intended to inform players on the basics of Cooking. If you require information about crafting a specific item, please refer to the page for that item.
Acquiring Recipes Edit
Before any cooking can be done, you must ensure that you have learned the recipe for the item you wish to make. Cooking Recipes can be purchased from a Fishing Supplies Shop. Some recipes require the player to be at a certain Cooking skill level before they can be learned. Recipes are learned by being right-clicked.
Acquiring Ingredients Edit
- Category: Cooking Ingredients
- Category: Gathered Materials
When you have learned the necessary recipe to cook the item you want, and you have all the ingredients you need, you can begin crafting. You need to open the crafting window (Default: J) and select the item you wish to craft under the cooking category. Select 'Craft' on the bottom right of the screen.

Rootstock Festival Edit
Cooking is also part of the Rootstock Festival, held in the Freeholds, which occurs around the end of summer/beginning of fall every year. Cooking during the Rootstock Festival and cooking by Crafting, are similar, but different systems. The festival has items that are similar to items used in the cooking system, such as , but the materials are not the same. The two systems use separate materials and do not share anything.
Also, cooking during the Rootstock Festival is limited to the festival grounds. Normal Cooking is not limited to certain areas.
Cooking was added to TERA on the PS4 and XBOX during a July 2019 update.
