    Cooks- how much do you charge?

    I am getting more people asking me to synth food for them, and I am curious how much other cooks charge. (I'm used to synthing for free for friends and LS members.)

    Do you charge more for Sushi and Noodle dishes since you had to pay for the key items?

    Auction house might be a good indicator of how much cooks charge. Although as a melee I think the price of sushi doubling within the past month is insane.

    /Nod, I /tell them to get me the ingredients and I'll synth it for them ~ I list the ingredients for foods like Sushi and it normally puts them off >.>

    The reason Sushi has gone up in price is due the price of the fish, not the greediness of the Cooks ~ lack of fish-bots or fishing since the previous update whatever <.<

    Yea.. black sole went from 12k a stack to 25k here..

    I'll usually synth to people I know for a minimal fee.. say a stack of sole sushi costs 30k to make, and goes on the AH for 38k.. I'll give it to them for 33k or something. Not much, but I don't want to charge too much, or do for free when I could be doing something else.. if they supply ingredients, I don't mind charging like 1-5k for everything to be synthed..

    Trouble is most NQ foods sell for at best a 10% profit, at least if they can be HQ'd. That 10% covers breaks, so it's almost break even anyway. I never charge anyone for synths, but if anything I'd say charge a fee for HQ's, gives you more incentive to optimize your crafting conditions too :wink:

    Holy fragaroly. And people on Bahamut want to curl up and die when they pay 45k. (Which is still a lot, I won't deny that.)

    Do you know how much stacks of Black Sole were going for when it was that expensive?

    I never looked, but one of the cooks in my LS said it was up there. Not 75k but like 40-50ish. This was during the weekend and it has gone back down and has been fluxuating between 25k-50k...

    Fucking fishermen.
