PROVISIONER ► COOK ► BREW

OVERVIEW
A Provisioner gathers ingredients found in crates, barrels, bags and other objects in the world, and food and drink recipes found in chests, trunks and desks.

When a Provisioner finds a new recipe they should right-click on it in their inventory and select "Use" to commit it to their recipe book.

Provisioners create new foods and drinks by using a Provisioning Station, one of the many useable cooking fires found throughout the world.

Once a Provisioner has collected all of the necessary ingredients in a learned recipe, they can use a Provisioning Station to create that item. Foods give long term boosts to Health, Magicka and Stamina. Drinks will improve the regeneration of Health, Magicka and Stamina. Some rare recipes will even improve player stats for longer durations.

For more information on provisioning, tips and tricks from our community members or if any information in this guide is incorrect, whether it be due to human error or changes to the game itself please go to the provisioner section of our Traders Community and share with your fellow traders.
