Cooking is a craft that combines various ingredients to make a wide variety of tasty meals. Finished dishes can provide additional aid to a user's stats. The Culinarians' Guild headquarters is located in the Federation of Windurst, though guild representatives can be found elsewhere. There you can obtain Synthesis Image Support to assist your crafting, as well as buy and sell guild related items. Guild members beyond the rank of Novice can earn Guild Points, used to purchase items exclusive to crafters.

Synthesis Image Support NPCs
Synthesis image support temporarily raises your skill by 1 point. Advanced support raises your skill by 3 points, and requires a small fee based on your crafting rank. Synthesis Image Support can be obtained from the following Guild representatives:
Every ten skill levels, you are required to prove to the guild that you "have what it takes" by crafting (or buying) a culinary item of the guild's choosing. This item can be turned in once you have reached an "8" in skill (8, 28, 48, etc.), or higher skill (up to the cap). Once you have the requisite skill, speak with the Guild Master, Piketo-Puketo.
Once you have attained the rank of Novice, you may begin to earn Guild Points with the Culinarians' Guild. Note that you may only accumulate Guild Points for one guild at a time. The "Item of the Day" that the guild will accept changes every day at Japanese Midnight, and varies by crafting rank. Speak with Qhum Knaidjn, at (E-9) in North Windurst Waters to find out what the item is, determine the limit to how many points can be earned, and turn in items for points. You can spend points on the Guild Items.
Guild Merchants buy and sell craft related goods during the guild's hours of operation. Prices can vary greatly depending on supply and demand, and unlike Standard Merchants, they can sell out of inventory.
