Provisioning Guide: How to cook yourself some real moneys!

As every Khajiit know, eating healthy meals makes you stronger. This one will show you how to strenghten your bank account too!

Theory

Provisioning mats are worthless (0g each) = their value is determined by the market
Cooked meals and drinks are worth 1-5g each when sold to a vendor
You need minimum 2 mats to make one meal
With maxed out passives Chef and Brewer you make 4 meals instead of just one
Result = from 2 ingredients you’re able to make 4 * 5g = 20g

Summary

Buying provisioning mats for less than 20g for both = profit!

Requirements

  • High-level green recipes learned (more=better)
  • Maxed out Provisioning skill line
  • 12 free skillpoints / Maxed Chef (3/3) and/or Brewer (3/3) passives plus Recipe Improvement (6/6)
  • LOTS of free time to waste
  • A book, movie or other form of passive entertainment

How

  1. Buy choosen ingredients below your preferred price (10g for both is a good starting point)
  2. Make meals
  3. Sell them to vendor
  4. Repeat

Tips & Tricks

  • Buying Garlic and Millet helps you to get some moneys out of Fishing since hunting Perfect Roe leaves you with hundreds of “worthless” fillets.
  • Different ingredients have their different market prices, so adjusting your shopping list to the situation is a good idea. When Kha’jira is cooking her meals Murricans are waking up, so it’s usually almost impossible to buy some coffee.
  • Gathering provisioning ingredients by yourself is very time consuming, but your mats will be free. Also when gathering things by yourself you can find valuable valuables.
  • There is usualy at least one Cooking Fire in every Outlaw Refuge, so waiting for your bounty to decrease can be less boring. If by less boring we understand pressing one button for few hours.

That’s soooo boring! Is there anything I can do with it?
