    So with 120 disco/provo/peace/music, disco mastery selected, and a slayer instrument, I failed disco 32 straight times on a mob, until I ate a bite of food. The message was, "you eat the food but are still extremely hungry". But i succeeded on the next attempt. I don't remember seeing this in the latest patch notes.

    Been a myth about eating in the game a long time. Why when my Ibuer fails 20 times at a 25% I carry food to eat. Sometimes I just recall to my house (crossing server lines) and return and imbue the first try. Use the same eat or recall when enhance fails/wiff string along to long. And yes my 4x120 bard carries a Horn of Cornucopia.

    The worst is on Melee swords. You can eat till your 'stuffed' but after about 2 mins whacking monsters your 'extreamly hungry' again and hit chance is down to like 10%

    At the birthday party Mesanna shook her head in agreement that food/hunger has no impact. But on my bard I have also noticed that if I am "full" I fail less often. /shrug

    The whole food thing is a myth/urban legend.

    Well, it may be a myth, but I've been playing for many years now and I tend to agree with the OP in that it does seem to make a difference. Of course, I'm naturally biased, as my favorite characters in UO are my chefs (who can usually be found in the unemployment line). :)

    Seriously, whether or not eating is helpful in UO, it most definitely should be!

    Yeah, I'm aware of the old myth. This is new though, and I firmly believe they either put it in intentionally, or broke something during the last publish.
