- Cykin Type A Combat Ration
- Cykin Type C Combat Ration
There’s not a lot of tinkering to be done in lost ark. But that doesn’t mean finding cooking ingredients is not important. You can create meals to improve your stats. But most of the time the ingredients are used to help supplement your Adventurer’s Tome for each continent.
The ingredients of the Arthetine cooking recipe are a real mixed bag. Fortunately, none of them are ridiculously expensive or require a lot of luck to get all the coins you need. But you’ll need to collect ingredients from two dungeons, find the elusive wandering merchant, and buy crystals from a complex menu that’s easy to get confused about. Let’s go through a list of tips and locations below.
You will need to access the Dr. Bergstrom’s Laboratory Totrich Dungeon before you can complete this recipe. Once inside (regardless of the difficulty level), you will immediately see a large machine on your right with some large test tubes attached. On its south side you will see a mokoko seed – and opposite the other side you will find Bergstrom’s Yellow Potion.
Continue in the dungeon by following the quest. You will do a loop on the east side that will take you back to where you started, before heading northwest. You will now do a similar loop north of the dungeon, through the Biological Lab and the Power Core Room. Just before you get to the Power Core, there’s an unnamed room. Entering it from the north, you see shelves on the southeast side of the area with papers on the top shelf and cogs on the shelf below. Learn here to find Bergstrom’s Potion of Invisibility.
With these two potions in your inventory, head to the Robot Cook outside Neria’s Tavern in the Origins of Stern area. In exchange for the two potions, plus 1,700 silver coinsCook Cooking Master will do it for you Bergström drink you need. Once you have it, just right-click it in your inventory to add it to your Adventurer’s Tome.
Stimulating fluid soup
You need to buy “adrenaline boosting fluid”, which costs 777 silver coins of Wandering Merchant Nox. As with all wandering merchants in Lost Ark, you have to choose the right time to encounter him. It will be in the following locations at the following times and will stay in each location for 25 minutes (note that these times are for morning and afternoon in your server’s time zone):
- Scraplands (near Triport Guard Post): 12:30 p.m.
- Nebelhorn (near the Nebelhorn Lab Triport): 2h30
- Windbringer Hills (near Triport Guardhouse): 5:30 a.m.
- Totrich (near Place de l’Horloge Triport): 6:30 a.m.
- Riza Falls (near Whirlpool Observatory triport): 8:30 am
- Arid Trail (near Lupen Harbor Triport): 9:30 a.m.
You’ll know if you’ve arrived at the right time because Nox will be easy to spot on your map when you arrive at the triport (it appears as a gray icon that looks like a wheel). Once you acquire the Adrenaline Boosting Fluid, bring it to the cook outside Neria’s Tavern to Stern. The robot will turn it into Stimulating fluid soup for 1,400 silver coins.
Cykin Type A Combat Ration
Travel to the Market District Triport in Origins of Stern and head north towards Neria’s Tavern. Just to the left of the tavern entrance, you will find cooking ingredients Merchant Malina. She only sells one thing – the Cykin Type A Combat Ration – for 30,000 silver coins. Buy one and right-click it directly to add it to your Adventurer’s Tome.
Cykin Type C Combat Ration
Go to the Guard Triport in Scraplands. Walk west into the camp, past the repairman and up to its northwest corner. Above where the Ernst Regulator is standing, you will see a large metal box. Hidden behind is a bag containing the first ingredient you need – the ‘X-3 Vacuum Dried Powder‘.
Now head east from the Relay Guard Camp to the Hoverboard Test Site. Stay on the left side of the path. Just before you get to the entrance to the site, you’ll see three large metal cylinders against the fence. Next to the cylinder that is not in an oblong frame is a bag. Investigate this bag to find the ‘X-1 Vacuum Dried Powder‘ you need.
With both ingredients in your inventory, return to the Master Cook in Origins of Stern, who is standing outside of Neria’s Tavern. The cooking robot will create the Cykin Type C Combat Ration you need to 900 silver coins.
To make this recipe, you must collect an ingredient on the first floor of the Heart of the Scepter Dungeon. So if you don’t have access to it yet, you’ll need to continue the main story quest until you do. Once inside the dungeon, you must go past the first elevator to the area with the dangerous rotating discs. Go slightly past them, as a few mercenaries will attack you. It’s best to ship them first, before researching the ingredient you need.
Now review it discs. There is a machine that throws them on either side of the path. Despite their health bars, these machines cannot be damaged or defeated. Just past the one on the south side of the walkway, you will see notes on the floor at the corner of the railing. Examine them to get the Scepter Prescription ingredient. If you’re standing in the right place, all the discs will continue to miss you – so you can take your time.
Once you have the prescription, you can return to Origins of Stern and visit Cook, just outside Neria’s Tavern in the Market District. You don’t need to complete the dungeon, as long as you have the prescription. The Cooking Master will do the finishing for you Sceptrumpan 3mg for 1,400 silver coins.
Unknown liquid XD-6353
You need good eyesight to complete this one. First, go to Robot Cooking Master it’s on the platform outside of Neria’s Tavern in the market area of Stern’s origins. Start a dialogue with him and you will see the crafting menu. Scroll down until you see ‘boiling liquid‘ and select it. This will show you the 22 ingredients you have to make the liquid.
On the positive side, the food processor sells all of these ingredients. But on the downside, there are many who have very similar names – so you have to be very careful when shopping. Each ingredient will also cost you a ‘unknown crystal‘. These can be purchased from Deberry Culinary Ingredient Merchant, which stands just to the right of the door to Neria’s Tavern. Crystals cost 70 silver coins each.
Buy the crystals from Deberry, use them to buy the right ingredients from the cook, then give them to the cook to prepare the “Boiling Liquid” for you (for an extra 1700 silver). Once it’s in your inventory, wait for it to cool (five minutes) – and then you’ll have your Unknown liquid XD-6353.
You can buy the X-090892 energy drink straight from Potion seller Jane in the village of Totrich. Go to the Clockwork Square Triport and head north towards Thirsty Sprocket Tavern. At the crossroads, turn right towards the Antiquaire Gebison, and you will see it on the left side of the path. Just buy Jane’s drink for 30,000 silver coinsbefore right-clicking it in your inventory to add it to your tome.
