Dont sell this to NPC, worth about 75G while cost is around 500-800G.
However, did help me skill up from 75-77 on around 3-4 stacks.
Sells much better than Chocomilk to AH. Worth 2-3K in Jeuno AH.

These add 13% mp up to a max of 75mp.
So lets say you normally have 500mp
and then eat one of these, you would now
have 565mp.
However, if you normally have 900mp and
eat one, you would then have 975mp even
though 13% of 900 is 117 it caps at 75mp
so you end up having 975 instead of 1017.

The +1 pies have the same % added but cap
at 85mp instead of 75.

With that said these are FAR better for those
that Normally have 384mp or higher.
If you have only 100mp these will only add
13 so Rolanberry Pies are better if you normally
have above 384mp.
I would suggest using these only if you have more
then 450mp.
Reason being these cost 1k on Diabolos and
Rolanberry Pies cost ~500g each so to really
make these cost effective it's best if you have
450mp or more without any food effect.

Just for the record, kuchen is German for cake.

And because I'm feeling random, flammkuchen is German for flaming cake.

Kuchen in dutch means to cough. I like to think of it as choke if/when I die after eating these. I was addicted to these from the time i found out about them. Sold in timbres only when windy is on top and were slightly less than 900 gil with Hero+ fame. Sell these when windy doesn't rule if you cook em. Fenrir Jeuno AH 2-3k all others 1.1.5k ea

The MP boost for this item is 13%. I'm @ 71.5 cooking currently and was debating to make these or chocomilk. Made a few of these and had a huge request for them in the LS. I gave a few out for free and they tested em'. No longer +85MP, It's just 13%.

Rate me up please! (^_^)

Going for about 1k each on Valefor. If you already have all the Int and Mnd boosts you could possibly need from gear... these rock. I buy all of them that I can get my hands on.

i use this food item exclusively for my lvl 60 whm/smn (tarutaru). i love it so much. right now im getting about +80-85 mp. on Phoenix server they only sell for 300 per. so with the effect time at 3 hrs i only need to care 2-3 on me at any one time. the best part is if my party is hunting any kind of beastmen, i only need to average 100gil / hr from drops to cover charge.

if anyone knows the +mp% for this item, i would like to find out.

Sorry to say, but you won't see this pies in large amounts at AH if they stay at 2k per piece.
No level 80+ cook will waste his AH slots with a non-stacking items that gives him maybe 1000g profit per slot. On top of that, non-stacking flour as ingredient makes them a ***** to synth too - mule can only send 8 flour per session.
Stuff like yellow curry goes for 3k+ profit per slot in AH.
So ask your friendly LS cook if he makes some orange kuchen especially for you, like I do for my mage friends.

While I cannot vouch for the stats on this food (I make Marron Glace for my SMN and BLM), I was surprised the other day to see it being sold by Taajiji inside the Timbre Timbers in Windurst Waters.

With Windurst Hero fame, it was selling for slightly over 1,000 gil.

Windurst and Bastok were tied for first in Conquest, with San d'Oria in third.
Misleading and false

First, this will only give a max of 75 mp. Second of all it actually gives +13% mp to a cap of 75, so you won't get the full benefit unless you have over 577 mp.

Holy crap! When word of that gets around, I wanna see what happens to the price of these things! O_O;;
How much are these worth?
# May 04 2004 at 9:05 PM Rating: Default
By the stats on these, I can see they probably don't sell much at the AH, so could anyone say about what they sell for to a shop?
RE: How much are these worth?

If you're windurst citizen, can buy from NPC in windy waters tavern for about 1k.

My windy mule purchases right now for 994 with no fame.

I checked with my Windy mule with 0 fame as well and it's not sold "Timbre Timbers" tavern in Windy Waters. Note that Windurst is last in Conquest right now.

This recipe uses two saruta oranges, not three.
