Bronze 13,335 Experience.png 189 Karma 44 Copper coin
These are the expected rewards for a level 80 player.


Player will participate by interacting with Chef Wardrobe. Your goal is to fetch correct ingredients. It's similar to Mastery challenge Pot of Soup. One huge difference is that you sometimes need to grill or chop the ingredient.

Once you start the event, the Chef will yell out a sentence containing the key component he wants to be thrown at him. In the second sentence, he will specify if he wants to grill it, chop it or just take it whole. After you get the correct ingredient and modify it as needed, you need to throw it at him using skill 2. He will wander around the kitchen during the event, so make sure you target him while he is standing still.

In action-cam mode you must aim for his feet, not his body, for the game to register the throw. Move the cursor slightly below him so that he'll still be marked. You can see how much time is remaining by the Timed.png Sous-Chef Challenge effect.

For people who don't speak English or have troubles with understanding, try to focus on the single word. You don't need to know full sentence. Find that one ingredient in the sentence and bring it. In the second part focus on words grill and chop. If he uses them in any form, it's a signal for you to grill it or chop it. Otherwise, don't do anything to it.


The second skill is only available after you pick up the requested food.

Head Chef Mellitus: Hey, you look great. So, here's the deal: lots of hungry charr, not a lot of time to cook.

Head Chef Mellitus: Okay, I need to add the vegetables now, so they're cooked in time with everything else!
Head Chef Mellitus: One apple. Yeah, that'll do the trick!
Head Chef Mellitus: You know, an apple would be perfect for this. Knew a charr who couldn't get enough of 'em. Ah, memories.
