Make 75 Mil An Hour Cooking! Yea Just Like I Make 180 Mil An Hour Processing Ultimate Weapon Reform Stones!
Cooking can be profitable, but you need to realize it’s not just as easy as spamming a high value item.
What Do I Need To Consider Before Cooking?
Some materials for cooking are sold out on the market.
Some recipes take a lot of prep work, and this prep work needs to be factored into your “silver per hour”
You arn’t the only one who thought about cooking! Unlike imperial cooking, selling certain items can take hours/days/weeks.
Only so many items are sold in a day, if you make too much of one item, listing it all at once isn’t going to make more sell.
The Good Feed Example
Before we do any math to determine your profit, lets look through the material list for items that would be considered “limiting”
2 Dried White Fish
3 Mineral Water
The meat is our limiting item. This is something that is always sold out on the market and preordering for high prices. There are basically 3 ways you could obtain meat:
It’s up to you to determine how much you are willing to preorder the meat for, make sure that it goes into your calculation. If you want to use your gathering time for this particular item, just rememebr this item uses 6 meat. With gathering you are only going to pull maybe 3000 meat a day. So thats limiting you to 500 combines a day.
So now lets see how much you are going to make with your 500 combines:
2 fish at 1200 per fish = 2400
6 meat at 1973 per meat = 11838
4 flour at 550 per flour = 2200
3 mineral water at 30 per = 90
I’ll assume you gathered all your materials so we will use sale cost.
Cost per combine = 16528*0.845=13998
Each good feed combine on average will produce 4 good feeds so your cost per item will be:
13966⁄4 = 3492
The sale price on good feed is currently 9998 so your profit per item will be:
(9998*0.845)-3492 = 4956
So with your 500 combines you’d make 2000 good feed at 4956 profit each which would make you about 9912000
This is average money, but remember it’s not just pure profit, you spent your gathered material on this, so you cannot use it for anything else. Good feed has a limited demand, so if a lot of people think this is good money, the supply will quickly overtake the demand. And likely prices/profits will decrease and sale times will increase,
I’m not saying this is good or bad, it’s up to you to decide if this is worth your time.

What Should I Take Away From This?
Profits are more complicated than just saying “I am making a final product, it’s in and out value is my silver per hour.”
It is completly acceptable to use your daily gathering to collect specific items to create high value cooking items, but you need to ask yourself, “is this the best use of my gatherable material?”
You can use farming to gather more rare materials for your cooking, but again, you need to ask yourself “is this the best use of my farms?”
Some items take so much of a gatherable, sold out, material that you can never consider it as a “silver per hour.”
