Short post here, but it was with great amusement yesterday that TTGF learned that Fortune Cookies are actually the best buff food right now. Yes, Fortune Cookies.
Here's the Mists of Pandaria buff foods that USED to be the best, before 6.0.2.
+2 primary stat is a pretty minor difference, but +36 Stamina on top? That's nothing to sneeze at, with the stat squish. And then of course there's also the chance of snagging the elusive 5000 gold Fortune Card.
(The other top-tier Cataclysm buff foods are just as good as the Fortune Cookies, such as Severed Sagefish Head. You just lose out on the fun of flipping the cards.)
If you're still doing progression raiding in MoP's final days like Navimie and her guild, it might be worth whipping up some cookies!
