    What are some good skills to use to kill the monsters? I mostly Ninja but that doesn't seem to be working. And I don't believe I can do Hydra, don't have those skills D: I really wanna do the event though.

    I mean it depends. For me I kept a shield ready for charge and in my other hand is nothing so as soon as I get the choco sticks, it's automatically in my hand.

    In my other weapon slot I use knuckles and that seemed to work best for me

    I don't think the recipe has to be perfect. I had more than what was needed and it was still mission success.

    My friend said he just got the ingredient you least of and as much as he could for the other two, then turned in whatever he got when it was 5min. Short of 10 or something, but he got a score in the 70s and passed.

    He had to use a sticky mochi, the thing we got for attendance or whatever.

    I went and got a score of 65 (r1 tasting so 15 base points, score of 0 from ingredients, score of 50 from time limit) and it counted as a "success".

    The chocolate was ugly "It takes some real skill to mess up chocolate this badly!", and it gave a Plain gift box, instead of a fancy gift box.

    Seems more lenient than the normal cooking dungeon, at least.


    Also, a trick for everyone who has pets that deal AoE damage on summon, (like the Pegasus from Saga, or the free Tuan that was given away at MusicQ), those deal damage ignoring the food's defensive stats.

    If you have a few of them, such as from doing Saga completely on alts or something, then you could get enough kills just by summoning them alone, lol.
    Also someone mentioned it, but ANY attack that hits enemies, while you have the Chocolate Fondue Stick equipped, will lower the foods' defensive stats.
    This includes holding the stick while tossing bolts, while shock zaps enemies, while Fury of Light whacks things, and basically anything that counts as hitting.
    Just keep that stick in hand when the hits land.

    Of course you could always just bash with the fondue stick, that's simple.

    it's not hard. I succeeded a hate recipe with a score of 50-55, so basically it's just about hitting the 5 minute mark whereas ingredients are just added bonus

    You don't need the exact amount of each ingredient to get a good score. I believe you need at least 50 points to complete the quest. You do lose points if you go over 5 minutes, so even if you don't have enough of each ingredient, it's better to hit the fork on time than to go a minute over. Or under for that matter.

    And as Iyasenu said, pets can help. I have a fallen fairy, so I use the Chocolate Fondue stick to lower the food's defensive stats, then summon my fairy to deal additional damage over time. And of course the nimbus to put them to sleep, and make them easier to hit.

    Its not that bad. Kill the fondou thing first for the fondou stick. Then just use the fondou stick to fight. You can just use normal attacks, smash, and assault slash. Defend if you think you need it.

    Kill the ingredients into the big red circle in the center of the map. You can check how much is needed in the info button next to the exit button. You dont need to have exactly what is asked for but get as close as you can. When you are done, click the fork which is at the side of the dungeon, you cant miss it. Try to click the fork around 5-5:15min in.

    If you think you need more power, you can se Battlefield Overture or eat food items that increase str. Like the sticky mochi you got in the attendance earlier this month.

    I like to use Puppetry in cooking dungeons because the marionette helps to take some of the aggro away and Act:6 Crisis works wonders for getting all the ingredients into the red zone (or in a pile ready to be 'tenderised').

    So... Will we get 5 recipes everyday? Is it worth for me to use 4 other passes if i already completed 1 time and it counted as success? Or i get more boxes on each completed recipe?

    make sure you finish it within 5 minutes, more than that it will dramatically reduce the point
