Cooking plays a significant role in the gameplay of Rune Factory 4. Not only do you use it to heal yourself in fights and win over friends as gifts, but you’ll also display your culinary prowess in competitions too. Here is everything you need to know about how to get 1st Place in the Cooking Festival in Rune Factory 4.
Before going too deep into things, it is important to note that the methods this guide goes over really only pertains to people trying to win it the first time. Anyone who waits a year and competes again won’t have any issues winning due to their level and the sheer amount of recipes they’ll have by that point.
How to Get 1st Place in the Cooking Festival in Rune Factory 4
With that in mind, there are two ways to win 1st Place the first time you enter. The first requires taking advantage of saves.
In this cheesy method, you’ll want to pick a recipe and then add as many extra ingredients as you can. Doing so will get you close to max RP.
The more your recipe costs, the better your points end up in the competition. Once you make it, save before entering.
Since the points received by the other entrants will be random, it may take you a few tries to win.
The other way you can win the Cooking Festival is by investing in quality over quantity. You’ll want to find at least level nine ingredients.
Combining these will make for a better recipe without having to put too much in. The trick is you’ll be spending a lot more time finding these items.
Yokmir Forest has a lot of herbs, antidotes, green grass, and blue grass, so be sure to look there first.
Whatever way you decide to go, winning 1st isn’t going to be easy. The reward is well worth it, though, as you’ll receive the following:
- Recipe Bread x9
- Status UP item
- Random piece of equipment
Time needed: 30 minutes.
