In Resident Evil Village, players can get some permanent buffs by finding ingredients and bringing them to a character called the Duke. The Duke is a traveling shopkeeper who will appear in various places throughout the game, but can most commonly be found in the Altar area of the village itself.
Ingredients can be found in various locations throughout the game as different animals such as goats, pigs, and fish can be discovered roaming different areas. The animals can simple be shot which will cause them to drop whatever ingredient and players can then pick it up.
There are also some ingredients that are very rare, will only be available in specific areas, and may even be locked behind items that will only be available as players get deeper into the story. These ingredients are:
|Herbed Fish||Small overall health increase||Fish x3, Poultry x2|
|Bird and Beast Pilaf||More efficient damage reduction from guarding||Poultry x4, Meat x1|
|Three-Flavored Mititei||Larger overall health increase||Fish x4, Poultry x2|
|Tochitura de Pui||Largest overall health increase||Poultry x4, Meat x3, Juicy Game x 1|
|Ciorba de Porc||Much greater efficiency when guarding||Fish x1, Meat x5, Quality Meat x1|
|Sarmale de Peste||Increased movement speed||Fish x6, Finest Fish x1|
