TIP TO GETTING IT RIGHT

You need to farm (collect) Expert’s Opinion. How?

Step 1:

Select Recipe that you have ZERO (0) stars in.
Add any ONE (1) RANDOM ingredient in the recipe.
CLICK ‘COOK’.
Click ‘Get Feedback’

It will be wrong. Yes, obviously one recipe needs more than 1 ingredient.

Step 2:

learning

Do this 5 times until this pops up. He will tell you that you haven’t learned anything and you will be TRANSPORTED into a different map.

Step 3:

Kill him and he will drop the Expert’s Opinion.

 

Step 4:

Using the Expert’s Opinion.

angry2

When you click this icon after getting feedback, he will TELL YOU what you got right or wrong.

Wrong looks like this:can be better

Right looks like this:to the tee

pointws

Points = Stars.

Pork Cutlet

Pork: Flour: Eggs: Bread Powder = 9: 3: 2: 2

a. For Pork, its 3 stars, so its 3 points. Means, it varies +/- 1 from 9

b. For Flour, its 4 stars, so its 4 points. Means, it varies by 0. Means the answer is
correct.

Note:
For tiers 1 – 10, if its not perfect (4 stars), its usually -1 ingredient.
For Legendary tier, if its not perfect then it varies +/- according to the chart above.

If you’re still confused, try to digest this until you get it. πŸ˜‰

Happy Cooking!

    hiii i’m doing this event right now, and so far i’m just trying to get 3 stars on everything. I’m on tier 8 now, and i’m still level 4! Not too sure how levelling works. Can you share more on that please? I’m desperate hahahah thanks πŸ˜‰

    • anon

      Is your IQ negative uh? WTF it’s such a simple event and you can’t even get it right? Oh please don’t be an idiot

      • anon

        For your information sweetheart, I just got back on Maplestory a week ago and I have just gotten a gist of the event. There’s no need to be rude, anyone can just be a useless and faceless keyboard warrior. Considering how you can even suggest that someone’s IQ is negative, shows how tasteless your insults are. Well Ellen Degeneres always said, “Be kind to one another”, and I hope you have a bright future ahead.

      Hi there!

      Your Absolute Taste Level depends on how many total stars your dishes received. Since you’re on tier 8, let me explain based on tier 8 on how to get legendary ratings for your dish.

      Pork Cutlet

      Pork: flour: eggs: bread crumbs = 9: 3: 2: 2

      Step 1:
      Get feedback forms (Expert’s Opinion)
      -explanation is in the blogpost

      Step 2:

      Test ingredient combo. You can use the baselines in this blog. For now, its 9 Pork, 3 Flour, 2 Eggs and 2 Bread Crumbs.

      Step 3:
      Click “Get Feedback”

      Step 4:

      If you did not get 4 stars (Legendary), Immediately click on the small Gordon Romsay’s icon to use the Expert’s Opinion. DO NOT CLICK “RETRY”. You’ll end up wasting ingredients.

      Step 5:
      He will tell you exactly where you went wrong.

      Example:
      Pork recieved 3 stars, Flour got 4 stars, Eggs, 0 stars and Bread Crumbs, 4 stars.

      1-3 stars means you need adjustments.
      4 stars means its perfect.

      This means…
      Pork needs to be reduced/increased by 1 quantity (8 or 10)
      Flour maintain at quantity of 3
      Eggs needs to be reduced/increased by 1 quantity (1 or 3)
      Bread Crumbs maintain at quantity 2.

      Step 6:
      Adjust ingredients. Now, its…

      Pork: flour: eggs: bread crumbs = 8: 3: 1: 2

      Step 7:|
      Click “Get Feedback” and you should have got a Legendary Dish! πŸ˜€

      There is a small table above that shows how much to +- depending on the quantity needed.

      Usually for Tier 1-10, you only reduce 1 quantity for the ones you did not get 4 stars (perfect) after using Expert’s Opinion.

      For Legendary tier, you must use that small table. Some ingredients can be +-1, +-2 or +-3 from the baselines given above.

      Hope this helps!

      Happy cooking πŸ™‚

        Hey thanks for taking the time to reply mate!!! I’ve finally gotten the hang of it!! Didn’t think it was necessary to get 4* on every dish (or rather i wanted to believe that it wasn’t hahah) , but then I realised and now I’m at Tier 10 level 9. Great post btw πŸ™‚

      • Nisrockk

        You’re very welcome. Good luck on your Maplestory journey! πŸ˜€ And welcome back.

  • anon

    LOL Bruh, I started again last friday. Nice excuses

  • Epselyn

    u still dont have to be a jerk though @anon~

  • avocado

    did I screw up by using up my expert opinions without achieving 4 stars? I have no dishes that are 0 stars left. Is there any other way to get through this? 😦

    • anon

      Hey! I think most dishes are possible without expert opinion, tho more challenging in tiers 8-10, but made easier using the spreadsheet in this post.
      I actually used the google doc in this forum thread for the legendary tier –
      https://www.reddit.com/r/Maplestory/comments/70mc3s/guide_to_absolute_taste_legendary_tier_you_only/ it’s gonna be pretty hard without expert opinions, but if you have the patience it’s possible. I helped my friend with it using the method in the thread, and she took 1 day for the Ebi Chilli (it was her only dish without opinion), she was really unlucky with one ingredient also cos she had 7-8 tries on it.

      It will be tough, but all is not lost yet. Good luck!

      • avocado

        Thanks for the prompt reply! haha guess I am going to have a hard time trying. Anyways, thank you so much for making these guides. They are really helpful. πŸ™‚

      • anon

        I’m not nisrockk and I was as lost as you when i came to this post hehe. But you’re welcome!

      • Nisrockk

        anon is correct. You will indeed be having a hard time getting your Legendary without Expert’s Opinion. :/ But if there’s a will there’s a way and you will just have to keep doing it with trial and error until you get it right. Good luck and happy cooking!
