You’ve spent hours thinking about the best armor to wear to this fight, the best job to be, the best weapon to equip. You know the stats you need to beef up. You get with your party and you begin the fight. This Boss is history!

But the healer’s spells are not restoring enough HP, the Black Mage’s firepower is recasting too slowly, your tank isn’t packing enough punch. And just as the Boss’s HP goes beautifully critical, it lets loose an attack that would not have wiped you out – if you had just had 50 more HP…

If you paid attention – complete attention – to getting ready for battle, you would have eaten the right stuff to keep you alive. And equipped food to your hotbar. The right food gives you an extra edge that might very well win the battle, if not keep you alive. Food buffs do NOT stack – one buff is all you get. So you must choose wisely. There are several websites that can give you information. I’m not going to re-invent the menu. So here are a few examples of what you’ll find:



Healers: Food, Stats and Potions


*Piety: Affects maximum mana points

*Mind: Affects healing magic potency

Spell Speed: Affects both the casting and recast timers for spells. The higher the value, the shorter the timers.

Determination: Affects the amount of damage dealt by both physical and magic attacks, as well as the amount of HP restored by healing spells. Auto-Attack potency is also affected.
