    Your BLM/SCH/RDM Food Preference.

    Do you prefer to go all out INT, or hMP+, or a mix of both?
    Shit is situational, yeah, but in general terms, what do you tend to use?

    Melon Pie. Extremes on either end of the INT, +HMP can be found, but not without going crazy expensive.

    For BLM, it's usually Cream Puffs

    For SCH, it depends on the situation. I carry both Cream Puffs and Cookies on me, just depends on my role in the situation as to what I will use.

    For BLM, I usually use Melon Pies +1 if I want INT, or Wizard Cookies if I'm doing something where I'm resting a lot (soloing, etc).

    RDM, if I use food it's usually either cookies or Goblin Mushpots (10MND -10CHR for 3 hours). Sometimes pies, etc, but usually one of those two.

    I voted cookies since that's my general thing that I use unless there's a solid reason to use something pricier.

    Cream Puffs for BLM. Usually cookies for RDM if I'm playing curebot.

    I tend to use cookies myself, as INT is a nice boost, but the ability to gain mp back faster I feel is better. I used to use Pies, but then went to cookies, and I always thought it worked out better. Though now with so much more hMP gear, im thinking about going back to pies. For me though, cream puffs are out of the questions; +2hmp isnt great, but it's better than nothing I suppose.

    Usually Mushroom Stew, Icecap Rolanberry, or Marron Glace as RDM.

    Melon Pie +1 is pretty unbeatable for BLM. Good balance between INT and hMP, which is great because, unlike gear, you can't constantly swap food depending on what you're doing at a particular moment in time (well, you can, but it's utterly impractical). Only time I use Cream Puffs is for when I need to boost my damage output for a single MP pool as much as possible.

    As a RDM, it's mainly Mushroom Stew and Witch Kabob for me. With the occasional Brain Stew/Goblin Mushpot thrown in here and there.

    That's the main reason I use 30ms more often now, it never fails that if I pop a 3hr I'm dead within 15 minutes.

    blm: I haven't tried cream puffs much, i usually like having wizard cookies for small things, and melon+1 for bigger things so i get at least some +resting mp and +mp also. Usually I end up dying so i stick with wizard cookies.

    rdm, it depends on my sub if i need mp food. I have 1043hp/1053mp as rdm/whm. i can change my convert macro hp to 1107 which puts my mp down to 1023, which works well with coffee muffin+1 when i know i need extra mp, which puts me at ~1103hp/1103mp i believe (off the top of my head) but i usually stick with wizard cookies on the rare chance i actually get to rest on rdm.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    I always use cream puffs as BLM. I dont need the extra MP even for soloing merits. As RDM i like to use MP+ food in merit PT and MND+ for any HNM. On the rare occasion where id be kiting as RDM/NIN i would use a cream puff to help land grav & bind. Its all situational IMO.

    Listening to mages talk about food is like being at some kind of diabetics' convention.

    Cookies if I'm soloing temenos eles, cream puffs for pretty much everything else. I don't solo exp/merits on BLM anymore, but used to use cookies for that.

    As of a couple days ago, I carry a stack of each mentioned in the poll with me at all times. I'd like to go with cream puffs full time, but the duration/price make it a bit impractical.
