Is there a decent (and updated) food guide out there somewhere? Zam's database doesn't seem to be able to filter food by stats given. I'm currently looking for foods that give Control, but I of course would want to peruse for other stats as well.

Thanks for the link, and that's intriguing, but I have a few concerns:

Firstly, every category of food appears to have different ranks, yet the stats do not increase as the rank increases. What's the point of having a rank "requirement" if the stats don't change?

Secondly, I made some grilled carp (rank 10, Control +5) and ate them as my rank 25 Armorer. My Control did not increase. Does this mean you can't be above the rank of the food? Or are food stats hidden?

Lastly, that thread was from last October. Did the Nov. and Dec. updates change food at all?

stats are hidden. Also it is based on a multiplier - the +5 whatever is not what actually happens

best food info out there that i have found is baxter mergous's blog:

I normally don't whine about the Karma system, but was I really rated down for asking how the food system works and if there's an up-to-date guide? If this is a repeat post or a dead horse or something at least let me know!

Is this system really "working as intended" if it allows people to drive-by rate down with zero justifications or consequences?

I want to put a slight disclaimer on my assertion about the stats being hidden - I haven't done any scientific testing to show that eating food can and does increase stats like accuracy, magic attack, gathering, output, control, magic craftmanship, etc.

To be honest the way that stats seem to be functioning from reading what baxter has compiled - it makes me think that food is made to help you boost your lowest stats. So that, for example, if you are a cook and a gladiator, you can drink juice to offset the magic-based stats you don't have - without reassigning points - so you can craft decently with full tank stats.
