Questions concerning food in UO

Discussion in 'UO Lake Austin' started by Parsifal, Aug 20, 2008.

    Last night I was having a discussion with Gamlin regarding the need to eat food in game. Can someone fill me in as to the recent changes that have affected food intake?:bowdown:

    Years ago it was necessary to consume in game food to help with Stamina regen and in some cases it was even helpfull with skill gain; especially during the old Power Hour gain system. :pancakes:

    Now I do not see any added benifit to consuming food, even the Grapes of Wrath if you are at max damage increase. I do see a benifit with the enchanted apple to dislodge certain debuff spells but that is about it.

    Any insight with this would be great!:eyes:
  2. About all it does now is to help regen stam somewhat - actually damn little. It's nowhere near needed as in the days of yore except for RP I suppose.

    Yeah, I've had a few old-timers who have helped me a lot over the years, swear that you need to eat, but I recall the FoF that Restless mentions. I have not eaten anything in nearly two years and do quite well.

    I notice that when I dont eat I fail more on casting and dont hit as much with my weapon. As soon as I fill myself up it seems I hit and cast A LOT BETTER. I think someone should send this in for FoF this week.

    I'm with Azazel on that one. Whenever I am hungry (say after a death) I tend to fail a lot on bard skills and high level casting. After I get myself full I definitely seem to be much more effective at both. And this is consistent, not once in a blue moon.

    Throwing my lot in with Vahne and Az: I usually know it's time to eat when my 8th level spells start fizzling. :)

    As opposed to the real world, where I know it's time to eat because I'm not asleep, heh. But then, that may have something to do with my essential pear shape...
