Unlike some RPGs, which challenge you to find recipes out in the wild, or even to come up wit hthem on your own, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot locks most of its recipes behind completing specific quests or talking to certain NPCs. Because of this, you’re going to want to make sure you’re talking with any NPCs you come across, as well as completing any sub-quests that you spot along the way.
