It feels a teensy weensy bit self-serving to be writing about this topic. However the timing is such that it needs to be addressed. Why now? What is special about this time in the life of EiF? I’m soooo glad you asked! Players are starting to think about how to get the most from their characters and templates now that PvP is starting to kick in. The GCW Invasions are being live tested. Bases are being dropped by opposing factions, just taunting the opposition to come blow them up! Just last week the Imperials and New Republic faced off over salvaging the ruins of a blown up NR Base outside Anchorhead.
The player killing instincts are coming to the surface. Crafters want to make the toughest, most resistant armor. Weapons need to deal a lot of damage! How can foods help? There are food and drink to help improve Assembly and Experimentation chances. Food to increase the drop rate on creature resources when something amazing is available.
There are player enhancing foods and drinks. Things to temporarily increase health or mind pools. Need to dodge better? Are you missing your targets and need to be more accurate? Yes, you guessed it there is a food or drink for that! ((Okay, I’m totally geeking out and thinking…”there is an app for that* Then I remember back when I played SWG Live there were no tablets and smart phones in everyone’s hand, and apps weren’t a thing. Sorry, back to the topic at hand. Hee hee hee))
This is by no means meant to be an exhaustive list, nor am I the expert. Not by a long shot. Thanks to Colin and Anishor for their input into this Friday Feature.
Things to be aware of when using Food and Drink
Filling – Each food or drink has a fill number. This means how much your tummy is filled when you eat or drink an item. You can fill your tummy up to 100. There is a lot of strategy that players put into this, so talk to some experienced PvPers to learn more.
Timing vs # – Each food or drink item has a duration that is either a set amount of time or a number of uses.
Accuracy bonus to hit on the currently equipped weapon
Block – Increases the chance to block
Damage reduction for a set number of attacks, but never lasts longer than the designated duration. Gives a nice edge in PVP, especially if facing a hard opponent like a rifleman with an ion rifle or various others that sometimes hit hard for one or another reason. This will reduce the indicated % of the DMG you take after your armour reduction has fully had its course.
Damage Reduction. Works exactly like Synthsteak, but not as strong, nor filling.
Dodge – Increases ability to dodge for a set amount of time.
Dodge – Less powerful than Pikatta Pie
Action/Quickness/Stamina – Increases each of the three pools for a set time duration
-Vasarian Brandy :
Mind/focus/willpower pool increase for a set duration.
Focus and willpower
Creature Harvesting – While not directly PvP related, the resources are for the crafters who make the weapons, armor, food, and drinks PvPers use. This provides a direct increase to the amount of resources harvested.
Instant heal to your mind. Not often used, but useful in a tight situation where you need that little edge over the opponent.
Crafting Experimentation – Increases the chance to get an amazing on the first experimentation
Crafting Assembly – Increases the chance to get an amazing on the assembly of your item.
