i just came back off a break about 3months ago that lasted 7 months and i started

to lv my brd again. I haven't been in very many parties that i wasn't a brd and i

have started to notice that very few ppl are using food at all last 9 parties i

was in no one used any I'm guessing it is due to me being a brd and they feel

they don't need food. When I was lving my other jobs I used food every party even

if it just ginger cookies when i was a whm for a few extra ticks when healing

mp. What i'm wanting to know has any other brds noticed this or am i just running

into a streak of ppl that don't want to kick out the extra gil for dmg or acc ?

not sure what level you are, but if you are fighting collibri, they have a move that steals your food. many people are too cheap/lazy to spam food when it gets stolen.

i freely admit if i am in a pt where everyone else is gimping it up without food, i either leave or in the case where i am just getting buffer i just gimp along with them.

Why fight like a man when I can fight like a chick with a bear?
#3Asmoranomar, Posted: Dec 08 2008 at 4:12 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I don't really see it as gimp. When there is no dedicated tank and people are forced to hate swap, your food is going to get taken. Its a waste of gil more than anything - Colibri can be killed fast enough (sometimes too fast) without food. Its also not fun for the healer when a bird steals a melee's food and then turns around and pecks all the melee into red because of the enhanced bonuses they get.

collibri don't get any special bonus after stealing food. not using food just because it wont last the full duration is gimp.

if you are actually killing too fast to maintain chains, pull some mamools or wivres. if you are still killing too fast, xp on mamools and use your time better. in fast paced merit pts, the bird only has a chance to use 1~2 tp moves, so if you are killnig that fast then food lost isnt that big of an issue anyway.

additionally, when leveling up, you wont be in an infinate chain, and improving killspeed does help.

I have noticed this also it's not just vs colibri people don't use food it's lots of different levels. Even when you are fighting colibri you should be eating meat, it's cheap bring a few stacks to the party and you should be set. It's not going to cost you much and it will boost damage and kill rate.

For those other levels whats the point of inviting a brd if your going to gimp yourself so much by not eating food. It really bugs me, hell I have given people food in my party so that they stop sucking. But then again with the gear I have seen on some of these people who are leveling lately it doesn't surprise me.

XP at lower levels wouldn't have to suck so much if people didn't gimp themselvs, and xp at mid levels vs colibri could be amazing if people didn't gimp.

I hate that mentality that people think they don't need to use food because they're getting bard buffs.
It's usually that guy who never uses food who will also be the first to send you that /tell "my march wore off rebuffpls"

That's also probably the same guy who wants March, 'cause Haste is 1337, but just ends up missing at a faster rate.
