# 1 Food does what now?
08-16-2012, 07:17 AM
OK STO brainboxes - Can someone tell me exactly what food consumption does for you? I understand that it is an out-of-combat heal and that there are various levels of power, depending on rarity. The question is: the info box says it activates over some number of SECONDS. So does it only return health after you have taken damage, or does it add some lasting hit point bonus for some period? The foods are supposedly stackable, but would you NEED to eat 10 Andorian Tuber Roots? If they dont have a lasting effect, I dont get why you would need to stack them.

# 2 Food and tribbles
08-16-2012, 07:26 AM
Although food stacks in the inventory, and has a short heal time, I mostly use the food for my ground crew, and also recently discovered that the tribbles in inventory have been eating it and getting drunk on sorian brandy...

After discussions with my fleet members, certain foods (green, white and purple quality items) produce different tribbles. I have yet to investigate this.

Think you be better off using tribbles to supplement your crew, as it has a small boost but lasts longer.

Yes, I have been using the food for tribble breeding. There is a handy guide for that under "breeding" if you go to the tribble page. They will eat your stuff if you put it in the same location as a tribble and presto - more tribbles. Still need to know - does food give any lasting hit point bonus, or does it just speed up recovery?

There are a handful that do give buffs (Dosi Rotgut gives you a small hit point bonus for 15 minutes), but generally, no, it's just an out of combat heal.

If there's any added effect, it shows up in the tooltip.
