    Description: You are the food provider for the community. Hunt down exotic animals around Nexus and find unique materials to discover new food for the people of Nexus! When you have found new food, it is time to cook and create brand new recipes with your fellow cooks to help support the hungry people on Nexus.

    The main idea of this path is to help the community by providing recipes/food that will support people in PvE by giving them buffs, healing and can cause funny things to happen like running around uncontrollably/become small/become giant etc.

    To advance in this path you must do the following:

    1. Hunt down exotic animals
    2. Discover Plants, Bugs etc. that can be used as spices, salts, oil etc.
    3. Cook the food
    4. Create new recipes by mixing foods together

    It isn't going to be easy, as you advance through the game not only will these animals be harder to kill but some will require a certain method that doesn't require them to be killed and instead can only be obtained by doing certain tasks, what these tasks will be will depend on our imagination and how flexible the game is.

    The Settler can also help The Chef create a Cafe/Restaurant that will allow The Chef to gain exp and have money split 50/50 with The Settler and The Chef whenever food is purchased.

    What do you think?

    Sounds like a good idea, but only if cooking isn't already one of the crafts.

    They could just subcontract that system to capcom and called it Monster Cook Hunter ;)

    Thinking a Chef will be a crafting option, and we don't know much on those yet...There could be a good deal more to crafting in WildStar compared to the norm.

    Yeah there isn't much information on them so I just thought I would create a path based on cooking instead.

    Instead of a path wouldn't this fall under the hobbies they talked about? Seems like a better fit.

    Anyway, like the premise, and add more for settlers to do too.

    Exactly, you can't have a town or a city without a restaurant :p

    I'd like it if they set up the Chef as you stated here. Having a little Cafe would be nice.

    You could set up a place to sell your creations on your housing plot and allow public access. Designing something like this seems like it could be a lot of fun. Oh the possibilities.

    "Chef" is too narrowed down to beit's own path. Because then you might as well have a Janitor path or an Electrician path.

    It sounds like "Toriko", a manga. :)
    Great idea ! Even if i think Carbine will not add another path at the release. :)

    Yeah that is where I got the main idea from, I combined Torikos role as a Gourmet Hunter and Komastu as a Chef and it would fit Wildstar.

    Settler covers cooking because Carbine has stated that they are able to place campfires and picnics. Chef is just too narrow.

    That is why I posted it fit better into the hobbies that WS will have.

    I could see it as one of the quests a settler can participate in but not as an entire path, I just don't think there's a huge demand for it. I'm sure cooking will be in the game as a crafting profession. It better be anyways because that's one of my favorite things to do in games!

    What would the Mechari diet consist of, fried circuit boards and chips?

    I personally think cooking wouldn't really fit in with the Wildstar setting. I mean if their in space, wouldn't they have like tubes of tasteless paste to fill their hunger?

    If this is a path.... we need to make 3 others to go with it for balance reasons!

    [​IMG]

    Each of the paths is based on one of those.

    Soldier = Predators: Kill all the things
    Scientist = Achievers: Study all the things
    Explorers = Explorers: Find all the places
    Settlers = Socialites: Help All the People

    So I charge you with figuring out which of these Chef belongs too and inventing 3 more!

    why? >> I mean, WHY? For what possible reason would people do that? Do people in the future just not enjoy the texture and taste of food anymore? D8 OH GAWD! THE MEET THE DOMINION TRAILER MAKES SO MUCH MORE SENSE NOW!

    The dominion has outlawed TASTE BUDS! That's why the guy asked for an expensive drink, not a good tasting one at the end! he doesn't CARE about the taste because taste buds are illegal!
