Greetings from Istory! My name is Ele Lespeera and I will be your chef this evening.

When I first started this game, I had my heart on Culinary; however, I soon noticed how non-profitable it would be for me because you just couldnt eat food and get the benefits..there was some super secret formula o.O

Now us Culinarian’s and other dedicated Crafters know about the effects of food and how wonderful it is. Yes, Culinarians from every server have done this, but I want to share this with you and keep doing so until you all know.

I have tried to break it down as elementary as possible so please for give the length (and I talk alot anyways sooo…)

What Is the Purpose of Food?

Food is used for boosting a variety of stats. You can use food for attribute boosts like DEX, VIT, MND, PIE,etc,etc.. or you can look for boosts of Control, Perception, Attack, HP/MP+,etc, etc…

When you use food you get +5 in what ever stat the food enhances. Yes, that doesn’t sound special at all, but hold on to your silky Thor undies! I bring great news! If you use food properly, there is a bonus (Yes, a *☆BONUS☆*).

If you use food in the most proper way, you can receive up to about +7.4% of what the food enhances.

Have you ever seen someone eat something and they receive messages like “eats a —– and finds it to be divine (delicious/tasty)”? Those are bonuses.

“Tastes divine” offers +7.4% to the stat
“Tastes delicious” offers +5.4% to the stat
“Tastes tasty” offers +3% to the stat

If you receive no message and only “well fed” means you are not receiving the bonus

How do I receive this bonus?

As you know, when you look up food on websites, you would see Optimal Rankrank #). Food has a favored optimal level just like equipment does. So you should pay attention to that as you SHOULD do for your equipment.

Also, to get the bonus for food, you have to utilize your points. Each raw food and dish has a favored rank, attribute, and element. You would need to apply the correct amount of points for those areas to receive the full bonus of the food you want to use.

I hear you guys already, “This means I dont have freedom for my points! D: ”
Settle down, its ways to still get a bonus for your food.

The Chart
If I could get the chart on this forum…..
Here’s the link to the picture…sorry about that guys.

http://img198.imageshack.us/img198/9306/foodchart.png

This chart shows the optimal rank for food to the left, attribute stat in the middle, and the element stat to the right (obvious)

How Do I Use that information?

Let’s do an example:

“I’m rank 36, but I’m having horrible luck with control on harder synthesis. I want to have better control! What can help me???

Tuna Miq’abob: Optimal Rank 35
Accuracy: +5
Control: +5

From the list, you saw that cooked seafood dishes favors DEX and Lightning element.
From the chart, you saw that rank 35 food favors attributes stats of 61 and element of 48.

To get “tastes divine” :

BOTH attribute AND element stats have to be+/- 5 of the optimal points.

Ex: DEX 63 Lightning 48 will give you divine
Ex: DEX 66 Lightning 52 will give you divine
Ex: DEX 66 Lightning 53 will give you divine

To get “tastes delicious” :

EITHER the attribute OR the element have be within +/- 3 of the optimal points

Ex: DEX 63 Lightning 55 will give you delicious
Ex: DEX 103 Lightning 46 will give you delicious

To get “tastes tasty” :

EITHER the attribute OR the element have to be -/+ 4-5 of the optimal points.

Ex: DEX 66 Lightning 22 will give you tasty
Ex: DEX 97 Lightning 52 will give you tasty

Its THAT simple
Closing Time

That really is all there is to it. Many cooks know this and ive noticed other crafters know this also because Ive seen the messages they get nowadays.

I want to make sure I keep spreading the word about food effects because a Cook has to make that bread (literally!)

*Special thanks to all the cooks and crafters for their research and time!*
