Need a list of Dragon Quest Builders 2 recipes? If you want to build the best base and give yourself every chance in combat, you should know as many of them as possible. There's a huge amount of them and it isn't always clear what they are, so now that Dragon Quest Builders 2 is on PC, I'm here to help give you the head start you need.

When it comes to Dragon Quest Builders 2 room recipes, they'll tell you what furnishings a room needs to fit a given spec. Starting with an empty room—a walled-in space with walls at least two blocks high with a door—you can add extras to create bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchens, and more in return for Gratitude. The better your room fits your villagers needs, the more of that special currency you get. Thanks to All Gamers (spotted by GamesRadar) for the complete list.

Food recipes in Dragon Quest Builders 2 function differently. Cooking recipes give you the edge in combat and can boost your attack and defence stats, plus your resistance to debuffs inflicted by enemies in uncharted areas. Below are all the recipes you can find in Square Enix's build-'em-up sequel.
