    Another food update?

    I'm not asking for new food item, I'm asking for an update of the current food. There are a lot of food items in FFXI, probably over 200+. You can count at least 15-20 dishes for each of the AH categories. However, not many are actually used by people.

    Even the most extensive user of food will probably only use up to 20 different dishes. For melee jobs: Yellow Curry Buns, Red Curry Buns, Meat Kabobs, Bison Steaks, Rice Dumplings and Carbonara. For mages: Apple, Melon, Pumpkin pies, Sweet Rice Cakes, Cream Puff, Marron Glace, Cookies and maybe some other 3 hour cakes. For craftsmen: the macarons. Nowadays, mages rarely ever use any food in abyssea, melee reduced their food consumption and crafting are pretty much dead. Overall, a lot of food are merely there to level up cooking, take up space and confuse players.

    In the past, SE did an update to food so players wouldn't just eat meat kabobs. Now, I think there should be another similar update so the remainder of 200+ food items are to be useful.

    Note: There are a lot of food that nobody has any idea what they do. I don't think people are willing to spend time and effort to research about such food and write them down on wiki anymore. Perhaps SE would disclose the hidden stat bonus behind several of the current food items?

    Aside from the fact it would be a huge time sink to totaly revamp cooking so all the foods have useful stats... however, you will be happy to know there was something on the jp twitter this morning about skill up foods for mages/melee.

    The foods need and should be updated so that they are on par with the state of the game now.

    Some new pizzas would be neat.

    But mostly I'd like to see them introduce new recipes for 95~100 that won't break the bank or require tedious farming of R/EX ingredients... virtually every option to skill from 95 to 100 just absolutely sucks.

    Both of these items increase the rate of combat skill gains.

    At 100K and 50K a stack on Bahamut, the increase better be 75% increase in skill gain!

    I doubt it, similar to how martial master doesnt go to our pets since signet doesnt affect them.

    Oh that's nifty! Did not know about those food items (and I have 100 cooking lol..) - well, I know what I get to do once I've finished my 200 fish for the day!

    the ingredients to make these are pretty cheap and easy to come by. either find someone with cooking or wait for people to start flooding the ah with these and drop the price
