The Return of Fortune Cookies as best buff food


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!

    Done been many glubberhumpin' years since I done took me a CS class - so long ago what it were FORTRAN rathers than C++ or Ruby on Rails or Snakes on a Plane. But I still remembers what one of the first things they taught us was "assign yer numbers ta variables right at the start, then use the variables. Don' fuhggin' hardwire numbers inta yer calculations, or you ain't never gonna be able ta find and fix'em, if'n ya needs fer ta change sumthin'.

    Guess somebodies weren't payin' attentions.

    All kinds of strange things are happening due to improperly implemented stat squishing it seems. Saw Moosader 2-hit ICC gunship the other night and it boggled my mind til he explained it.
