One of the most underrated aspects of Elden Ring is item crafting. If you're struggling against a specific boss or need to get rid of an ailment, craftable items are your best friend. Some of them help heal you while others provide a huge boost in battle. Each item you learn to craft is discovered through finding different Cookbooks and the recipes they hold inside.
A popular Cookbook that players want to know the recipes from is called Armorer's Cookbook. This cookbook is designed to give players an edge when it comes to fire-type items. The first Armorer's Cookbook can be discovered fairly early on in Elden Ring but the second one requires a bit more traversal in the Lands Between. You can see exactly where Armorer's Cookbook 2 is located below.
Finding the Armorer's Cookbook 2 in Elden Ring
To find the Armorer's Cookbook 2, you won't need to leave the starting region of West Limgrave. However, you will need to visit a location that you might not have discovered yet.
This location is right near Coastal Cave, which is along the far western beach in West Limgrave. For a landmark to guide you, the island of the Church of Dragon Communion is located directly across from where you want to be.
To get to Coastal Cave, you will need to descend the cliffs near this spot. It's wise to do this without Torrent so you can be more precise.
Once you're down on the beach, go south along the water until you find a Nomadic Merchant sitting on a log with a fire in front of him.
Speak to the merchant you'll see his shop, which contains the Armorer's Cookbook 2 for 600 Runes. Buy it and you will open up the following recipes in item crafting:
- Firebone Arrow
- Firebone Arrow (Fletched)
- Firebone Bolt
- Neutralizing Boluses
These are great items to unlock if you're an archer. However, the Neutralizing Boluses are perhaps even more important, as they can stop your poison from inflicting any more damage than it already has.
The next cookbook is also found at a merchant's shop but it costs more Runes, so come prepared with some extra cash in your pockets.
That's everything you need to know about acquiring the Armorer's Cookbook 2 in Elden Ring.
