In this week’s update we are improving the quality of life of all alchemists and chefs by adding new Imperial Cuisine and Alchemy boxes for Imperial Crafting Delivery.
While some will be busy crafting, adventurers in love with the ocean can get busy with the new quests for Oquilla’s Eye that we are also adding this week.
If the alchemy, cooking, and ocean are not for you, you can still enjoy some sweetness with the “Chomp! Choco Stick Day” event which is starting today.
|Added new Imperial Cuisine and Imperial Alchemy boxes for Imperial Crafting Delivery.
Imperial Crafting Delivery is a content we hoped would guarantee you a certain profit for cooking or performing alchemy. If the price of your cooking or alchemy product is too low on the Central Market, or if there is already too much of the same product there you could always turn to Imperial Crafting Delivery to make some profit. This is because the amount of Silver you get for each Imperial Cuisine or Imperial Alchemy box is fixed.
However, due to the limited type of items that could be sold through Imperial Crafting Delivery there has been an imbalance in the price and availability of certain items. The food and elixirs unavailable for Imperial Crafting Delivery tend to be overlooked while the items that are available for Imperial Crafting Delivery tend to be high in demand, which drives up market prices.
We wanted to improve the existing system, and we tried to do it in two ways.
Firstly, we wanted simplification and inclusivity. Except for a few items, almost all food and elixirs are now available for Imperial Crafting Delivery. Instead of each food item having its own box, the boxes are now just simply divided by life skill level you need to make the item.
For example, when you use Imperial Cuisine to pack Beer you will get an Apprentice’s Cooking Box but if you pack Grain soup you will also get an Apprentice’s Cooking Box. For just the Apprentice’s Cooking Box alone, you can choose from a list of 16 foods to cook. You can even pack higher-grade versions of food and elixirs for Imperial Crafting Delivery.
Since we greatly decreased the types of Imperial Crafting Delivery boxes, if you make the boxes in bulk they should take up less slots in your storage or inventory.
Despite these changes, depending on which box you want to make, the number and cost of the ingredients may vary. Therefore to maximize profit, you can check the prices on the Central Market before deciding on which box to make, or make the box for which you already own much of the ingredients needed to make it.
Secondly, we wanted to add more rewards. Though the main goal of Imperial Crafting Delivery is earning Silver, we wanted to add some rewards for each time you turn in a box. This is because making Imperial Crafting Delivery boxes uses up a lot of materials, which may leave your storage depleted.
Now, you will get a different type of “Delivery Gift Box” for each type of box you hand into an Imperial Crafting Delivery NPC. From the Delivery Gift Box, you will get one type of item useful for cooking or alchemy, at random. We hope that this will help you make your next Imperial Crafting Delivery box more easily.
