Cook (料理人) is a job class that originally hailed from YGGDRASIL.


In YGGDRASIL, the Cook class was a non-combat profession.[1] It mostly focused on the preparation of food and those without any levels in the class are unable to cook.[2]

Known Cooks

Abilities and Powers

Being a Cook, cooking required specialized skills. However, cooking was able to give temporary ability bonuses to the person who eats their food.[3]

If a cook was to utilize buff-effect ingredients to make food, it is possible for the food to acquire buff effects depending on the level.

In YGGDRASIL, only those who possessed the job-specific special ability were able to cook. This was because food could temporarily raise battle capability through buffs, which was why requiring a job-specific special ability was natural.


  • Though the Homunculus Maids were technically domestic workers, they do not have cooking skills.[4]
  • If they used buff-effect ingredients, even without the cook class, NPCs are still capable of creating regular foods, the kind which does not contained any special buffs in it.
  • For native people from the New World, they have the ability to prepare food that buffs others without needing to have a cook class for as long as they have buff-effect ingredients.[5]
