Bring your own.

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 1:24 pm

In raids, hair if I want spellpower I usually partake of the [Great Feast]. Last night I took a look at the stats and compared it against my home-made fishie food, [Firecracker Salmon], and got a surprise, the Feast has lower stats, which surprised me for a 450 skill recipe. Especially considering how damn hard it is to get those last 20 skill points.

[Edit: Smythy has pointed out the the Great Feast is in fact not a 450 recipe, the 450 version-[Fish Feast] does have higher stats]

I’m not knocking the players that bring this to a raid, they’re doing a grand service – there’s plenty of raiders that don’t even have cooking and wouldn’t have any buff food at all if the Feast were not provided for them.

I’m just saying if you do have sufficient cooking you can get an small extra boost by bringing your own.


  1. Great Feast isn’t a 450 recipe, it’s a 375 one.
    Fish feast, which IS 450, has the best stats and is the same as the individual ones.

  2. I really should do a little more research shouldn’t I? Though all the useful sites are blocked at work.

    I’ve got 450 cooking now, so I’ll be bringing some feasts to the next raid a week on Thursday.

  3. I usually tend to bring my own food. The one i bring is gives me a pure stat bonus of 40 str. which is much more scalable than the regular AP bonus provided by the fish feast.

    I think the food buffs that provides pure stats (eg. str, int, agi) are much better due to scaling. But I can only say that for sure for paladins ?

  4. Vind, I thought tankadins would have double benefits from the feast since both AP and SP are somewhat useful to you?

  5. Ap is useless for tankadin. Str = Blockvalue and Holy shield slam takes SBV into calculations. ?
