Use meat

The attack boost from a mithkabob is more worth the accuracy bonus from sushi in low/mid levels. Rice Dumplings give fair attack+ as well as Accuracy+5. Even if your accuracy is only 60% or so, adding another 10-15 accuracy won't boost your total DoT as much as eating meat will. By the time you get to the point that you can use Sushi for a significant enough bonus, you should have enough accuracy gear available to you to be able to keep using meat anyway.

Thief Food

Squid Sushi is good for thiefs especially when you hit 30. Dex and Agi both effect how effective your trick attack and sneak attack are. You do miss the +5 str you get from sole sushi so I would be interested in seeing the DoT on both sushi's.

I'm a retired whm so I don't know much about DD food. So... is this good for a samurai to use? I'm only level 10, I bought a stack of this and Sole sushi. Which one is better for a samurai to use? Thank you ^^

Using sushi at level 10 is like paying a fast food restaurant $200 for your cheesburger just becuase you're able to.

# Jun 15 2006 at 5:04 PM Rating: Decent
actually i might do this because of the extra stats. there are no gear that can give the raw attribute stats than sushi gives. also if you have money it is of no concequence whats so ever. to you, it seems like a waste. but to someone whos got lots of cash, or better yet, to someone who can make them, its nothing.

Thanks alot ^^ I used mithkabobs til 41, then I started using sole sushi, it helps alot.
RE: Sushi
# Mar 14 2006 at 11:15 PM Rating: Decent
you shouldn't be using ACC food at that level or anywere near it, especially sushi, 15% of a low skill is close to nothing. If you must use acc food use something like Jack 'o lanterns(10acc) or eyeball soup(12acc). Or stick with atack food like meat mithkabobs,dhalmel steak and meat jerky.

As for higher levels maybe 45+ sushi becomes better, Sole is best for DD if you can pay the price (most people think the +5 str isn't worth the price). Otherwise squid or bream sushi works fine for SAM and mostly all DD jobs.

squid vs. sole
# Aug 02 2005 at 9:59 AM Rating: Decent
Ok lets clear this up because I'm only saying this one more time. Sole sushi does not give you any better acc than squid. The only difference between the two is that sole gives you str+5 along with everything squid gives you. If you don't believe me then go check it out on this site or any other for yourself. That +5 str may be what you're looking for but acc it is not.

Sole Sushi gives 10 less HP, no AGI, but STR +5. Besides that, everything is the same.

Sole Sushi does not give +5 AGI that Squid Sushi does.

as a taru lvling melle job i always used meat kabobs have low str but as a war/nin i think i would rather have the dex and acc than the str 1 dont do as much damage per hit as i did with meat but i hit more and do nore critt so i say these are better but thats just lol i used cheifkabobs so useing these are cheaper any way that my view on it....im thinking about useing these for my monk...
Cheaper and better

Oh ho ho!!

On Cerberus server, Squid is about 14-16k a stack

Meanwhile, the sole sushi (which I *thought* was better) goes for 24-30k...

Wow... major stat difference between the two! :D
RE: Cheaper and better
# Aug 04 2005 at 1:34 PM Rating: Decent
Sole Suishi is meant for DDs. It gives DEX, STR, and added accuracy. There are more DDs in the game then blink tanks this is why Sole is more expensive it also uses rarer fish. This food is meant for WAR/NIN NIN/WAR RNG/NIN (AGI n RA+ being the big factor here AGI gives ranged acc)THF/NIN (DEX and AGI for SATA also the racc n acc is nice).

To anyone on the Remora server. My Mule is Xanathas he is a taru in Windurst.

This food is exactly what THF/WAR needs. It's my food of choice now, and i have excellent TP gain while boosting my SATA quite a bit as well. Because of berserk, i don't need attack food so much. ^^

They're good Ninja food regardless of race...... The Evlaan's lower starting DEX becomes next to irrelevant very quickly.
# Feb 12 2005 at 11:55 PM Rating: Default
yea the dex becomes more insignificant as they get further and further behind the rest of the races.



nins should use jack-o-lanetrns anyways... acc, eva, emnity?

First off, since Lanterns have -10 CHR, the lie of CHR giving enmity would mean that the food lowers enmity, making it the opposite of what you'd need... (Rate down, btw)

Second of all, if you still believe CHR effects [Fill in the blank], please hit the link on Nekio'post to know the real and exact truth.

Third: yes, this food is awesome (as are all sushi, frankly). If your not tanking and have the gil to blow, then I highly recommend this. If tanking, I'd say go with the Lanterns for the EVA+10. Just my opinion though ^^

Since when do Jacks give enmity?

And if anyone says anything along the lines of "CHR gives enmity blah blah blah," I'm rating you down for perpetuating the lie. The truth.

Since people still don't get it, I'll even post the quote to which I have already linked so that no one can ever claim anything hate-related is affected by CHR.

The question asked in the interview was, "Does charisma affect hate/enmity(aggro)? Or is it only for Bard songs and Beastmaster charms?"

The answer by the SE rep was:
"The charisma attribute score does not affect hate or enmity(aggro). It does,
however, affect how a bard`s songs and a beastmaster`s charm ability are not
only used but also resisted. There are also weapon skills that are greatly
affected by charisma."

This is all they said. Note they didn't say "doesn't directly affect hate." What they did say was that ONLY songs and charm, as well as a few WS (including Dancing Edge) are affected by CHR. Either SE lied to us about CHR, or CHR has no bearing on anything other than what they stated (Charm, Songs, and WS's) Why are there still arguments about this?

Just thought I'd add that the ws CHR affects are the ones with additional status effects. When i started using lanterns for my nin i noticed a dramatically reduced success rate for the paralyzis when using Blade: Retsu

CHR certainly doesn't directly affect enmity. Everything I've seen in the game leads me to beleive that it does affect provoke though. Hence the confusion and rumours (people are stupid enough that they can't seem to seperate the concepts of the provoke job ability and enmity itself).

Ketami, DEX becomes a moot point because if you want accuracy, you buff the accuracy stat directly. The amount you can buff it rapidly caps out at higher levels (same for damage and ranged accuracy) - everyone ends up with the same accuracy. Though the DEX gap does widen a little at higher levels, the actual effect it has on overall accuracy/hit% decreases as you progress through levels because of other factors. You have to look at the whole picture instead of just learning what the base stats effect.

Gonna have to agree.

They S-E didn't say it ONLY helped BRD, BST, and some WS's. S-E gave examples. Call me skeptic, but 'voke still has some speculation in there. My belief? 'voke has two parts: spike hate and static hate. Static stays, spike doesn't. The more CHA, the the more spike hate is transfered to static hate. But that's just a pld's view on things. I could be wrong, I'm not at all the expert on 'voke.

Second, Rigsta's right. If you want to increase ACC, you'll go for ACC directly. Higher levels, and the race card doesn't matter. +1 DEX when you have 60-70 to begin with, means crap in the long run. +10 ACC is the rough equivilant to +20 DEX (course dex has two sides; +acc and -chance to GET crited). So, ACC is what you need to increase.

Jack's seem better for nin's (given the obvious +eva stat, meaning more uts), though sushi is always fun. I use sole sushi on my THF.

What is also sad, is that provoke almost becomes irrelevent past 60. Just an initial push to get it to look at you. I get more hate with ninjutsu than with a provoke. So -10 chr, who really cares.

+10 ACC is the rough equivilant to +20 DEX (course dex has two sides; +acc and -chance to GET crited). So, ACC is what you need to increase.

DEX affects your possability of GETTING Critical hits on the mob. AGI is what affects the chance of you GETTING critical hits on you from the mob. ~.^

Halfway down, in the Job Abilities and Qualities subtitle.

DEX (Dexterity) - Affects your chances of landing a physical attack and your chance of inflicting/receiving a critical hit.

AGI (Agility) - Affects your chances of dodging a physical attack from an enemy and is also related to your long range attack accuracy.

So, DEX will affect critical ratio and AGI will affect how often you dodge. Given, you can dodge a critical attack, I believe (I've guarded against them and shield blocked them before on MNK and PLD respectivly).

It's not just 15 accuracy, it's 15%. It is very good. I was in a party where all the melees were eating mithkabobs, and when the beetle buffed its evasion, i was the only one hitting it more than every once in a while. I was landing so many shots that the ninja lost hate to me.

EDIT: Most melees depend on STR/ATT to do damage, so sole is better for them. THF depend on DEX/AGI/ATT to do damage. Since THF/WAR have berserk, this is an excellent food. THF/NIN still need something to boost their attack rating.

# Jan 23 2005 at 5:19 PM Rating: Decent
If you don't have money for Sole sushi and you're a DRK, DRG, MNK, or SAM, this is a good alternative. While you don't get the obvious STR boost that Sole gives, you do get the ACC bonus, which I find just as valuable.

I'm a Mithra 55DRK on Kujata and I just started using this(since buying sole sushi on a regular basis would deplete my money), and the only thing I have to do is buff STR and Attack more(STR+10, Attack+26). This is a perfectly fine alternative if you're money isn't as high as you'd like it to be. At 60, I plan to save some money up so sole can be my permenant dish, however.

Yes I can confirm it adds Racc also. Rng are loves these. For melees I think sole sushi are better since they give same acc and Racc bonus but they give more dex than agi.

So rng, nin = squid sushi
Drk, Mnk, Drg, Sam = Sole
Thf = Depending on gear and price since they need both dex and agi

THF Food?
# Dec 30 2004 at 9:51 AM Rating: Decent
would this be better for THF/NIN than MithKabobs?
RE: THF Food?
# Feb 22 2005 at 3:52 AM Rating: Decent
I highly disagree. im a lvl 60 thf and i would take squid sushi over meat mithkabobs any day!
the +6 dex +5 agi and 14% acc is heaven. the acc will ensure you get the TP you need plus the boost from dex and agi makes this my personal favorite for thf food.

THF/NIN are better off with mithkabobs (or some other food that boosts attack).
RE: THF Food?
# Jan 03 2005 at 7:17 AM Rating: Default
yes, most definately. dex helps sneak attack, and agi helps trick attack. unfortunatly they are 18k a stack, at least on Fairy that is. if i could afford it, i would start using these instead of mithkabobs
