  • They sometimes give you better stats than that of what the games’ changing platters offer.
  • You can choose on what specific skills you need to activate for certain quests and buids.
  • You can get rid of unecessary skills that doesn’t benefit the weapon you’re using.
  • It frees up jewel slots for certain builds.
  • Best used when using food vouchers.


Stats Increase

Activation Chance

  • Sparkling ingredients mean that they are fresh, and they increase activation chance.
  • Freshness of ingredients also gives you Health Boost bonus which are maxed at 50hp
  • Stamina boost is always present.

Food Color Meanings

How to know how many amount of meat, fish, veggies, beer I need to unlock a certain skill?

Click on food skill to show the skills available for each type of food colors.

For example: For example, on the Courage section (red color foods) I want to get the Slugger skill. What i’ll be needing is x6 Courage food. Its as simple as that.

Example of a Situation

Example situation: Let’s say i use a melee weapon, and i want to have a polisher and constitution skill. Putting those 2 skills on your set removes 4 level 2 jewel slots on your set slots. Which is a waste. So, how do we get it?

If you check the Food Skills again, well be needing:

  • For polisher it said that we need x2 Courage.
  • For Black Belt (constitution) we need x4 Vigor.
  • If you want to go boost your attack, go full meat. To get that juiiicy Attack Up (L).

So we use this.

Remember: you can get +50 hp bonus, and higher activation chance with fresh ingredients.

My Saved Food Builds

Note: I mainly built for Attack buffs. If you want a more defense or elemental resist based build, just change the ingredient type.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
