FFXIV - Complete Culinarian Ingredient Guide List

Why think about where to get ingredients too much when you can just have the information on hand?

by

Hello, my fellow Culinarians! Here we have a complete list of ingredients needed for Culinarian recipes, as well as where and how to get them (and their prices, if applicable).

This guide is outdated as of the 2.1 patch! I will be fixing it all up once I can. Please check my FFXIV guide list for updates. Sorry for the inconvenience!

I've tried out every tradecraft in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and cooking is by far my favorite. While you may not make as much money off each sale, the demand for your dishes will never die down as other players progress their characters. Plus, nice pictures of food.

The downside to being a "never useless" crafter is that being an efficient Culinarian means you need to spend a lot of time (and sometimes money) getting the wide array of base ingredients to make sought after dishes.

An efficient Culinarian is going to level both botany and fishing to provide themselves with cooking ingredients. You need a lot of everything to make big sums of money -- so get that fishing pole and scythe on hand!

Before we get started

There are a few things to keep in mind as you look at the lists below:

  • Ingredients are sorted by their functional type (not seen in-game, but personal opinion) and are further sorted in alphabetical order.
  • Listings that simply say "vendors" can be found at a variety of NPCs, often tradecraft suppliers in each city. These NPCs are not individually noted.
  • A listing noted with (*) gives a link to monster drop information found on either Gamer Escape or XIVDB, depending on the exact information needed.
  • Some NPC names are specifically noted. Their locations are as follows:
    • Jossy - Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks (The Bismarck)
    • Z'ranmaia - Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks (The Seventh Sage)
    • Littlejohn - Old Gridania (The Whistling Miller)
    • Holasfhis - Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks (The Hyaline)
    • Smydhaemr - Limsa Lominsa Uppder Decks (Naldiq & Vymelli's)

Whew! All right, all done. Thank you for your time, and I hope this list comes in handy!

(With 2.1 just about here/here depending on you read this, you need to know that the information contained in these guides is going to be slightly out of date for up to 36 hours, depending on how quickly I can obtain and update the information in each guide. Please note the powerleveling guides will be INEFFECTIVE until XP numbers have been updated and I have recalculated everything. Enjoy 2.1 and sorry for the inconvenience!)
