When I started making the Adventure Bar Story posts, I never had the intention of becoming a Wiki. Still don’t, but I know a lot of people have a lot of questions and the game doesn’t do a particularly good job of explaining things.
So, here are some of the most common answers for frequently asked questions and a few hints for you.
How do I get past the stone in Nus Forest?
For now, you don’t. It comes into play much, much later when you acquire a Pickaxe. Just ignore it, and every subsequent rock that stands in your way, the best you can for now.
Why can’t I go anywhere else?
Your bar level, which is found in the upper left corner of the Menu screen, needs to be raised. You can raise your bar level through high sales and cooking contest wins. Cooking Contests occur on the 10th, 20th, and 30th of every month.
Also, take note of the face icons on the menu. If it’s not a red smile, then take it off the menu for a day or two so your customers don’t get bored of the same old items. Some items, like mushroom dishes, sell better according to the season you’re in.
How do I win Cooking Contests?
The general rule of thumb seems to be that value equals quality.
Use a 1,000G value per dish guideline and you should win every time.
What do Combos do?
Combos increase the sales of your menu items. You can have up to seven items on the bar menu any day. Combos range from two to five dishes, so you can have up to three combos on one menu. Don’t know the combos? Check out our Adventure Bar Story Combo Guide.
Where’s the Secret Catalog?
After Alfine joins your party (you did make an Apple Pie, right?), go to Casselburg’s School of Witchcraft. You’ll get the secret password to enter the mage tower. Go to the third floor and you’ll find the room in the picture. I’ve used a Misto Plant here to highlight the secret passage. Go in, hit the OK button, and you’ll open a hidden treasure chest.
How do I switch party members?
You can only switch party members through the bar. Go to your bar, enter the menu, and take the awful rolodex UI down to “Party” and switch your members out there.
What should I use to level up my characters?
For the first 5 levels, Riceballs work wonders.
From levels 6-25, you can rely almost solely on Crispy Bacon. Pork and Salt are easy to obtain early on, while Smoke Wood can be purchased in Ostenlein or traveling Peddlers for a mere 10G.
Once Ostenlein runs low on Smoke Wood or you outgrow Crispy Bacon, you may need to rely on other sources. Fish dishes are a good, abundant source to consider.
The game told me my “Farm Produce Has Arrived” but it’s not in my inventory. Where is it?
Check the bag behind the counter in your bar. Yeah, the game only tells you this once.
Where do you get Otts Water for the Royal drinks?
Not from a well, nor from Otts Cave, so you can stop looking. Once you get to Otts Lake/Falls, you’ll find Otts Water in abundance.
What about Garuda Eggs?
Yep. Those come later, too. You’ll have to get to Gilbert’s Path, first. Get your Bar Level up to Level Six (Three Gold Stars) and you should unlock it.
What is the “Cactus Drink”?
Cactus + Barrel = Tequila.
Cabbage Juice is your best friend.
Did you know that Cabbage Juice has a “Satiety” of -2? It’s, in effect, a mini Metabolizer that can help you get around the 99 satiety per day cap. If you’ve a lot of foods to go through or are under-leveled and don’t want to burn days leveling up, consider purchasing all the Cabbage you can from Fred and tossing it in your Blender.
I can’t figure out how to cook (insert recipe name here).
Good news. We have that covered. Check out our Adventure Bar Story Recipe Guide for all your cooking needs.
