How to Make Focal Chili in ARK: Survival Evolved
Hello, Good News! If you are looking for a way to boost your crafting speed and movement speed in ARK: Survival Evolved, you might want to try making some focal chili. Focal chili is a dish that can be cooked in a cooking pot or industrial cooker, and it has some amazing effects.
In this article, we will show you how to make focal chili, what ingredients you need, what benefits it gives you, and some tips and tricks to use it effectively. We will also answer some of the most frequently asked questions about focal chili. So, let’s get started!
What is Focal Chili?
Focal chili is a consumable item that can be created by combining various types of meat, berries, and citronal in a cooking pot or industrial cooker. It is one of the many dishes that can be made in ARK: Survival Evolved, and it has some unique properties that make it very useful for certain situations.
When you eat focal chili, you will gain a buff that lasts for 15 minutes. This buff will increase your movement speed by 25% and your crafting speed by 100%. This means that you can run faster, dodge enemies better, and craft items quicker. You can also use focal chili to improve the quality of your custom recipes, but not your blueprints.
How to Make Focal Chili
To make focal chili, you will need the following ingredients:
- 9 x Cooked Meat, Cooked Fish Meat, or Cooked Meat Jerky
- 5 x Citronal
- 20 x Amarberry
- 20 x Azulberry
- 20 x Tintoberry
- 10 x Mejoberry
- 1 x Water
You will also need a cooking pot or industrial cooker, some fuel (thatch or angler gel), and a water container (waterskin, water jar, or canteen). To start the cooking process, put all the ingredients and the water container in the cooking pot or industrial cooker, and light the fire with the fuel. It will take about one minute to cook one focal chili.
Be careful not to use wood as fuel, as it will produce charcoal and dye instead of focal chili. You can also use cooked fish meat instead of cooked meat if you have more of that. You can store focal chili in your inventory, a tamed dino’s inventory, a preserving bin, a smokehouse, or a refrigerator. It will spoil after 5 hours in your inventory, 20 hours in a tamed dino’s inventory, 2 days in a preserving bin, 3 days in a smokehouse, or 20 days in a refrigerator.
How to Use Focal Chili
To use focal chili, simply select it from your inventory and consume it. You will see a green icon on the bottom right corner of your screen indicating that you have the focal chili buff. You will also notice that your movement speed and crafting speed are increased significantly.
You can use focal chili for various purposes, such as:
- Crafting items faster in your inventory or at a station.
- Making custom recipes with higher quality and nutrition.
- Running away from dangerous enemies or chasing down prey.
- Exploring new areas or caves faster.
- Completing missions or challenges that require speed or crafting.
You can also stack focal chili with other consumables that boost your stats, such as enduro stew (increases melee damage and health regeneration), fria curry (increases hypothermic insulation), lazarus chowder (increases oxygen and water consumption), mindwipe tonic (resets your engrams and stats), shadow steak saute (increases night vision and damage resistance), battle tartare (increases melee damage, movement speed, damage resistance, and health regeneration), energy brew (restores stamina), medical brew (restores health), sweet vegetable cake (restores health and tames herbivores), cactus broth (reduces water consumption and aggro range), bug repellent (reduces insect aggro), lesser antidote (cures swamp fever), beer liquid (reduces damage taken and increases damage dealt), stimulant (removes torpor), mushroom brew (removes radiation), re-fertilizer (grows plants), or soap (removes dye).
Why is Focal Chili Useful?
Focal chili is useful because it gives you a significant advantage in terms of speed and efficiency. By increasing your movement speed, you can travel faster, avoid danger better, and reach your destination quicker. By increasing your crafting speed, you can craft items faster, save time and resources, and improve your custom recipes.
Focal chili is especially useful for players who like to craft a lot of items, such as weapons, armor, structures, or consumables. It can help you reduce the crafting time and increase the quality of your products. It can also help you make better custom recipes, which are personalized food items that you can create using a cooking pot or industrial cooker and a note. Custom recipes can have different effects depending on the ingredients you use, such as restoring health, stamina, food, water, or oxygen, or boosting your stats. By using focal chili before making a custom recipe, you can increase the quality bonus of your recipe, which affects the amount of nutrition and effects it provides.
How to Make Custom Recipes
To make custom recipes, you will need a cooking pot or industrial cooker, a note, and some ingredients. You can use any type of meat, fish, egg, berry, vegetable, mushroom, honey, or milk as ingredients. You can also use some special ingredients that have unique effects, such as black pearls (increases weight capacity), leech blood (increases health regeneration), organic polymer (increases melee damage), sap (increases hypothermic insulation), silk (increases hyperthermic insulation), or element dust (increases movement speed).
To start the process, put the note and the ingredients in the cooking pot or industrial cooker, and light the fire with some fuel. You will see a menu where you can name your recipe, write a description, and choose an icon. You can also see the stats of your recipe, such as the amount of food, water, stamina, health, and oxygen it restores, and the buffs or debuffs it gives. The stats of your recipe depend on the ingredients you use and the quality bonus you have.
The quality bonus is determined by your crafting skill and any modifiers that affect it, such as focal chili. The higher your quality bonus, the more nutrition and effects your recipe will provide. You can increase your quality bonus by leveling up your crafting skill stat or by consuming focal chili before making a recipe. You can also use a mindwipe tonic to reset your stats and engrams and allocate more points to crafting skill.
How to Use Custom Recipes
To use custom recipes, simply select them from your inventory and consume them. You will see their effects on your stats and buffs. You can also see their name, description, icon, and stats by hovering over them in your inventory.
You can use custom recipes for various purposes, such as:
- Restoring your health, stamina, food, water, or oxygen.
- Boosting your stats such as melee damage, movement speed, weight capacity, damage resistance, insulation, or night vision.
- Giving yourself special effects such as health regeneration, radiation protection, insect repellent, swamp fever cure, or dye removal.
- Taming herbivorous creatures faster and with higher effectiveness.
- Creating personalized food items that suit your preferences and needs.
You can also share your custom recipes with other players by dropping them or putting them in containers. You can also store them in your inventory, a tamed dino’s inventory, a preserving bin, a smokehouse, or a refrigerator. They will spoil after 5 hours in your inventory, 20 hours in a tamed dino’s inventory, 2 days in a preserving bin, 3 days in a smokehouse, or 20 days in a refrigerator.
