Food at endgameFollow

greetings friends.

i used to play PLD at endgame back in the Earth staff days. i came back about a year ago and am just getting back into endgame on my new character.

Right now im just doing Sky and a bit of dynamis, for sky i'm usually /nin and dynamis is usually /war.

so, i used to use tacos for sky, and carbonara for things like fafhogg/KB. i dont plan on doing any ground kings or hardcore stuff like that, but, now that i'm using /nin for tanking sky gods, i'm not really sure what to use. i figure the taco's are almost useless as i rarely get hit with shadows down.

would carbonara be the best choice? just for the massive HP boost? or is there some other food that i'm not aware of?

note - i don't have attonement yet, so eating sushi for TP probobly wouldn't help me much.

It really depends on whether you're doing a decent amount of melee or not.

Low- or no-melee: Dorado sushi (the only enmity+ food in the game).

Some melee: Probably Dorado again.

Lots of melee: In this case, it depends. If you need accuracy badly (hit rate of <75%), once again, Dorado sushi. If you're at or above a 90% hit rate (o.O), Carbonara. Otherwise, you might want to try Marinara Pizza.

Food solely for HP is probably (but not necessarily) not a good idea anymore. Eat food to enhance what you're actually doing, and trust the healers. :-)

Man, I can't think of anything I've tanked endgame where I could nearly cap accuracy. Maybe Dynamis mobs, but eh.

On a somewhat unrelated note however, you should try /rdm in Dynamis. It's the best thing going as far as crowd control is concerned, just make sure your sleepers are paying attention to the group of mobs that'll be on your ass.

I tend to use Dorado Sushi for most PLD/NIN tanking, Tacos for bloodtanking, and I carry around a Pizza or two but I haven't found my ACC to be acceptable enough to warrant using them on anything big.

I use Dorado and Pescatora about 50/50. If I'm not worried about taking hits or am kiting something that I could kite half asleep its sushi. If I know i'll be taking damage, Up against something that'll put up 1400+ DMG on me in one go, kiting something or somethings will get magic through, super tanking a bunch of weak crap (lol) I use pescatora.

I can't think of anything I'd have the ACC on for Carbonara or Pizza. Well I can, but its things PLD doesn't go to such as Merits, Nyzul Isle and most assaults, Salvage etc...

For sky/sea~ Triggers/farming/screwing around: Tacos or Sushi [for Atonement] Gods: I keep a stack of Pescatora and Carbonera on me. When I run out of Pescatora [In case we do 8 gods and I die alot] I'll use the Carbonera.

For dynamis~ I just used Taco's. Cheap enough. I wouldn't waste good food on a 3-4 hour event where you die alot.

For HNM/any other big tanking event [Odin, ZNM, etc]~ I would think Pescatora/Carbonera reign supreme. Pescatora for the HP and defense boost, Carbonera for the HP and ATK boost [to avoid 0's when building tp for atonement.]

Any other event~ you should probably not be on PLD, as mobs are dying fast.

It sounds like you die an awful lot on PLD ^^
