    After months of asking for food, any food, that adds a reasonable amount of int, more than the sad +1 you get from oysters/coleslaw, when other stats enjoy stackable buffs up to +10, and after waiting in anticipation for the announcement that its going to be fish, seafood will be the brain food, this is it! Ok, it didn't make it into release day but its in now.

    Wait for it....

    TADA!
    Well, they didn't lie to us. That fish dish does indeed add int.
    The trout and salmon are...exactly the same.

    Compare these long awaited int foods to the existing food we already had....

    aandd...its worse in almost every way.

    I hope that this is just because these are basic fish recipes (though still require considerable bought and grown ingredients and processing steps, ala cooking oil) and that we'll someday (someday soon?) see stat buffing food that is equal to the str/dex foods that add +5-6.

    Because this just kinda feels like a cruel joke.

    We want Salmon Surprise!

    The surprise is inherent in the dish. No matter what level of food the INT bonus is +1. SURPRISE!! You obviously can only get a little smarter from eating.

    I honestly wasn't expecting them to be as good as the str/dex equivalents - being lower tier dishes. But I was hoping for at least a tier 3, or, hey, even at least as good as the existing tier 1 food that requires no meat component.
    Just more things to throw into the bag of pointless foods to never cook/eat after the first time to see what they do, like the "disappointment bacon." :X

    Maybe these new ones in today's patch are better?

    * Sautéed Bass, Baked Trout, and Baked Salmon now buff intelligence.

    Why +1 intelligence? Is intelligence the best stat that doesn’t need the boost? (This is irony)

    Both bear/wolf surprise and obsidian bear stew/wolf chops give much bigger strength/dexterity, +5 to be exact.

    Please fix this!

    To be fair though, I don't think say +5 dex would have nearly as much impact as +5 int.

    Its a step in the right direction. Fish was useless before, compared to bread which gives health and focus regen. But now the int buff on fish makes me wanna finally butcher the many hundred I have in a barrel.

    We need more int buffs on foods, at the tiers the others have. Id also like some int + dex buff combos, like the stag-based foods can give (I think crocodile food does that too? str + dex?).

    We need a + 3 int food item, and whatever the obsidian tier is (i forget, and my backpack only has rabbit and venison currently).
