Even in the midst of war, sometimes, it is vital that you take a break and look after yourself. That applies in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 as well, especially if you find yourself having the opportunity to take a break at a rest stop. For those curious about how to cook and what it does in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, let us give you the important details.
Cooking in Xenoblade Chronicles 3
As mentioned, every time you come upon a rest spot in Xenoblade Chronicles 3, the opportunity to cook will present itself. Depending on the ingredients you have, you can try out different recipes that have different effects. For those in a pinch, you can also spend Nopon coins to make a meal if you have missing ingredients.
What Does Cooking do?
Different meals come with various benefits, including boosts to XP gain, gold drops, item drops, and boosts to class points gain for a predetermined amount of time.
By checking the UI, players can tell if an active buff is in place. A fork and knife icon will appear if so, and the circle will slowly decrease indicating the diminishing effects of the meal. You can get a more accurate representation if you head into the pause menu, which also states what meal you ate and how much time is left.
Time only passes if you are actively playing, and the effect follows real-time instead of the in-game clock that is sped up.
There you go, everything you’ll need to know about how to cook and what it does in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
