Delicious goodies crafted by players with many granting enhanced stats if you carry them as the first food item in your inventory.

Most crafted foods also have longer durations than standard fare purchased from vendors.

Grab your mixing bowl and start your journey into the wonderful world of crafted baked goods. Be ready to buy those forage AAs to find ingredients only found through endless searching....

You'll find our latest guide for mastering Baking below.

Getting Started

Baking combines are done in multiple containers. There are Mixing Bowls, Ovens and Ice Cream Churns. Mixing Bowls can be both portable or stationary, the portable ones are a good place to start. Ovens are typically stationary and can be found in zones with cities and some other out of the way places. There is a portable Ice Cream Churn if you can find a tinker to craft one for you, or there are stationary ones available in zones like the Plane of Knowledge and Sunrise Hills.

Note: Stationary tradeskill containers are found in various zones. Placeable items require using Real Estate to use. Click on each item to see locations where they can be found.

There are many supplementary items for baking like pie tins, pots and skewers. Many are crafted using pottery or smithing, some are tinkered, a few can be found on vendors.

Once you have a mixing bowl, head over to Crescent Reach and seek out Baker Sanura on the second floor of the main building and complete the four tasks she offers. If you prefer, there are also Freebie quest versions for Baking offered in Abysmal Sea. Either of these paths will raise your skill to 54 with no additional cost.

Skill Modifiers

If you're new to tradeskilling and aren't familiar with Tradeskill Modifiers, you can find many questions answered in this FAQ:

After you've raised your skill to 54, now head over to West Freeport and pay a visit to Event Coordinator Baublie Diggs and get the Beginner Baking Test. This will give you the Beginner Baking Trophy, a skill modifier that will evolve to higher modifications as your skill increases.


  • Always get your trophy once your skill is 54. It will have the easiest items to make/ingredients to find.
  • You must equip your trophy to evolve it.
  • Your trophy will not evolve if you're attempting/making recipes that are more than 100 points away from your current skill level until you reach 250.
  • Your trophy will "catch up" quickly if you reach the next level before your trophy evolves.
  • Only successful combines will evolve your trophy.
  • General Information on Prophecy of Ro Trophy Quests

Alternatively you can acquire a Geerlok All Purpose Baking Utensil from a tinkerer. That will add 5% to your base skill to help with successes. You must equip it in order to apply the boost to your base skill. The modifiers from the Trophy and the Geerlok do not stack. You will get the highest benefit between the two equipped items. Once you have evolved your trophy to Journeyman level, you no longer need the Geerlok.

Alternate Advancement Points

If you have already advanced one of your 7 standard tradeskills past 200, you will need to purchase one level of New Tanaan Crafting Mastery in order to raise your baking skill higher than 200.

Find more information for all AAs helpful to baking in the AA guide.
