I am a veteran of MHFU and Tri, and I'm a bit confused because in this game, I've never seen these skills show up. I get Lucky Cat and Felyne Carver (Lo) all the time, but I've never seen UltraLucky or CarverHi available, or gotten them at random or anything.
I'm in the middle of G-rank (G2), if that matters, and I've completed every villager request, including the ones for better ingredients.
So... 1. Do these two skills ever show up in the cooking skills list before eating, or are they assigned randomly? 2. Is there some kind of requirement to be able to get these skills I just haven't done yet? Do I need to clear G-rank before I can get these or something? 3. Is there a certain combination of ingredients where these skills show up the most? 4. Do I need to use a Voucher or Gourmet Voucher for these skills to show up?
Have you tried drink ingredients at all? Those seem to get me Carver and Lucky Cat skills pretty often in the Daily Skills when mixed with non-veggie ingredients.
I generally check several combinations and look for something that has lucky cat or carver, and if I don't see either of those I default back to whatever combination gets me Health+50 and Defense(L). I've just never ever seen UltraLuckyCat when looking at food combinations. I've definitely tried looking at the effects for stuff like Master Cola, etc.
