Ultimate guide on Food, Nourishments, Feast Trays, Tips on consumption, Prices by spedal

orcF03

Reddit poster spedal has a very nice and informative guide on consumables in Guild wars 2. Now this would be for players who prefer the conditional build professions. This guide, in my opinion,  should help any players who has conditional builds professions and feel they are weak in that department.

 

 

 

Thank you spedal for having this guide up on Reddit and we all may see an increase with many players in the cooking profession soon. Nice job!

 

 

Ultimate guide on Food, Nourishments, Feast Trays, Tips on consumption, Prices

NOTE: these consumables are all lvl80, however there are tiers of weaker versions for each consumable from levels 0-80 if you wish to use it as you level up, they are not listed below as there is too many, sorry

i know condition build is very weak compared to crit, but if you are going for say, pure bleed build (which is what i am right now for my necro), i found two consumables that stack with each other which gives insane effects:

rare veggie pizza

effects:  +40% condition duration,  +70 condition damage,  +10 exp/kill

cost:  instant buy = 1.7s  or  buy offer = 1.5s

feast tray cost: instant buy = 18s or buy offer = 10s

duration:  lasts 30 minutes

master tuning crystal (this is not your normal food, this is a different type of consumable that stacks with your food, it is crafted with artificing not cooking)

effects:  gain condition damage equal to 6% of your toughness,  gain condition damage equal to 4% of your vitality,  +10exp/kill

cost:  instant buy = 77c  or  buy offer = 58c

duration:  lasts 30 minutes

now the master tuning crystal is extremely good for necro since necros are very tanky so the vitality will provide a huge condition damage boost, and even more if you are a tanky necro build (power, vitality and condition stat gear)

personally i use them in dungeons and WvW, costing on average 4s per hour to have the buffs on, which is nothing, whenever i see someone in WvW without any food buffs on at all, it really pains me on how much damage output they are missing out on :(

also,

if you are really rich and bored endgame, buy or craft the feast trays and deploy them during a zerg so everyone gets a buff :) however these trays may vary in price from 4s to 80s, how feast trays work is you put down a tray on the ground and everyone can eat from it, gaining the buff, so the more people you have, the more worth it has :) NOTE the feast tray costs listed below are extremely unstable as there are barely any supply/demand for most of them, so the prices may flux greatly

plate of truffle steak

gives +100 power, +70 precision, +10exp/kill and thats great for crit builds!

cost: instant buy = 1.6s or buy offer = 1.1s

feast tray cost: instant buy = 50s or buy offer = 10s

duration: lasts 30 minutes

and

loaf of omnomberry bread

which gives +100 vitality, +70 toughness, +10exp/kill and thats good for guardians probably.

cost: instant buy = 4.6s or buy offer = 3.9s (a tad expensive there)

feast tray cost: instant buy = 58s or buy offer = 30s

duration: lasts 30 minutes

and

omnomberry pie

that gives 66% chance to steal life on crit, +70 precision, +10exp/kill and personally i think its awesome for thieves since they crit tons and are squishy :)

cost: instant buy = 2.1s or buy offer = 1.9s

feast tray cost: instant buy = 30s or buy offer = 5s

duration: lasts 30 minutes

and

plate of fire flank steak

gives +100 power, +70 condition damage, +10exp/kill this is great for power/condy hybrid builds

cost: instant buy = 20c or buy offer = 15c

feast tray cost: instant buy = 3.7s or buy offer = 1s

duration: lasts 30 minutes

and

bowl of fire salsa

+100% downed health, +20% damage whilst downed, +10exp/kill hmm this one can be tricky, you do have lots of health and damage whilst downed but if they stomp you, this food becomes useless, so it all depends on your situation when downed

cost: instant buy = 99c or buy offer = 47c

feast tray cost: instant buy = unknown or buy offer = unknown

duration: lasts 30 minutes

and

plate of truffle steak dinner

gives +200 power for 30s after killing an enemy, +10% critical strike damage, +10exp/kill omg this one is insane when it comes to farming in Orr!

cost: instant buy = 2.7s or buy offer = 1.9s

feast tray cost: instant buy = 40s or buy offer = 6s

duration: 30 minutes

and

bowl of curry butternut squash soup

gives +100 precision, +10% critical damage, +10exp/kill wow this is perfect for crit builds

cost: instant buy = 4.1s or buy offer = 3.9s (kinda costly here)

feast tray cost: instant buy = unknown or buy offer = 6s

duration: 30 minutes

and

bowl of orrian truffle and meat stew

100% chance to gain might when you dodge, +40% endurance refill rate, +10exp/kill ok let me tell you, if you are running the dodge refund + might on dodge + caltrops on dodge build for the thief, then this buff will literally make you godlike, not only will you gain around 3 stacks of might per dodge, you can dodge around every 2 seconds, resulting in a huge might buff and insane kiting potential, not to mention all the caltrops scattered everywhere, epicness to the max

cost: instant buy = 2.4s or buy offer = 2.1s

feast tray cost: instant buy = 44.4s or buy offer = 5.5s

duration: 30 minutes

and

bowl of lemongrass poultry soup

-40% condition duration on yourself, +70 vitality, +10exp/kill now this one is superb for melee tanks

cost: instant buy = 1.9s or buy offer = 1.5s

feast tray cost: instant buy = 80.5s or buy offer = 7.5s

duration: 30 minutes

now the special magic find food i use is

omnomberry bar

gives +30% magic find, +40% gold gain, +10exp/kill

cost: instant buy = 2.8s or buy offer = 2.8s (they are only a few copper different, so instant buy will do)

feast tray cost: instant buy = 31s or buy offer = 15s

duration: lasts 30 minutes

there has been lots of speculation that magic find doesn’t really help as much as the numbers suggest, personally i find magic find to be kinda useless but im sure in the long run, it does make a difference :)

also

(these consumables below are also not food, these are nourishments crafted with huntsman and weaponsmith which stacks with food effects, similar to the master tuning crystal above)

master maintenance oil

gain precision equal to 6% of your toughness, gain precision equal to 4% of your vitality, +10exp/kill

cost: instant buy = 65c or buy offer = 54c

duration: lasts 30 minutes

and

superior sharpening stone

gain power equal to 6% of your toughness, gain power equal to 4% of your vitality, +10exp/kill so if you are a tanky warrior, it will benefit you the most :)

cost: instant buy = 2.1s or buy offer = 1.7s

duration: lasts 30 minutes

and then

there is potions, these are consumables that grant you up to 10% extra damage against a specific type of mob, it can help you finish hearts faster or farm faster, below is the link to the wiki
