    QA build with major pass on all foods now going. I'm sure I'll get plenty of feedback but I think it is fairly close. I tried not to change the general theme of most foods though I wanted to! Dang, how many fire attunement foods were there? :O Should be live in 3 hours

    Is there a comprehensive list of changes or do we need to make every food in order to find out?

    @Chris

    I think many of us would be okay with you changing the theme of foods if it means more depth of decisions as to what kinds of effects people can get from different foods they eat. :)

    The upcoming build with this failed, he will try another build.

    Very interested in seeing what this might end up being.

    Almost as useful as a haste potion!

    Though, to be fair, there's an awful lot of foods in the game, it wouldn't strike me as outrageous if some of them were still useless. (Or at least, given 3d models and turned into deco items.)

    But overall... I'll be shocked if any of these changes result in anybody actually using other foods. For the life of me, I can't figure out why the devs are so damn terrified of giving us something good.

    Or at least doing the basic work of figuring out why only certain foods get used before blowing half a month on a giant pile of ineffectual changes.

    I actually use haste potions a lot now that they last over three minutes and I find them as loot.

    Well, then I am indeed surprised. Did the various buffs change a lot in the new qa build? I mean, I'm guessing something did, because that first iteration looked like it was no significant change.

    Hopefully they'll get updated on SotaWiki soonly. It's gonna be a paint to run around getting all the ingredients to figure it out myself. Much less ensuring I actually have all the recipes.

    They adjusted the points and buffs for a lot of foods. Even the foods that I currently use got a bit of a boost. I spent like an hour at Anpu's secret food chest looking at all the buffs.

    Huh. I thought there was an initial pass a few days ago where foods got points but didn't have any buff changes, then an updated one with buff changes and booze today-ish.

    Huh. Yeah, it looks like maybe all those hours I spent in Resolute Sewers are going to pay off. (Or not ever selling off meat; I have a pretty good supply of rabbits and squirrels, too...)

    @Barugon Curious what your combo is now, since we have similar builds.

    My idea is to maximize combat focus recovery, so I'm thinking Beef Potpie (1.0), Mutton Potpie (1.0), Spider Legs with Garlic Butter (0.6), Spider Soup (0.6), Garlic chicken (0.5) and Squirrel Skewers (0.5). That also gives 12 dexterity.
