Is there ever a point in time when the crafted food seriously outshines vendor food? So far I'm not seeing it... people have no reason to go to a culinarian when they can just buy good food from vendors in various areas of the world. Unless the level 50 culinarian recipies are really good or I'm completely missing something... I hope I am!
I've not tried this out yet but I was thinking about it yesterday. I'm going to try HQing low level Vendor recipies (such as Lentils & Chestnuts) just to see what the stat difference for gathering is, it's advantageous for me in two ways - I can XP Culinarian off it, and it will be used when I'm on Miner and Botanist.
