Food change is unnecessary and pointless

Why the change in purple and gold food? It's already expensive to use gold food and now in next patch gold food is gonna be as good as current purple? I don't understand the change and i find it unnecessary. Already most of the players are not using gold food due to money issues, and now its nerfed to purple level. I guess casual players don't deserve good food.

    I don't even use this food, outside my healers. Not a problem.

    Whilst I like those buffs and wish they hadn't nerfed them, they did outshine everything else. Before this, you could probably delete all the other food and drinks in the game and nobody would notice.
    Hello. If you're reading this; you're a beautiful person.

    Magicka Necromancer main (for now). I enjoy soloing stuff.

    In live, i think they are easy to categorize aswell, if you want sustain you got purple and if you want more health then purple you can just pay more and use gold food. Blue foods are no sustain anyway so im not including them. But with this change, im guessing most people will just use blue and try to get more sustain from outside sources.

    Pretty sure these food nerfs were aimed at PvP since people (I assume) didn't already use these foods for PvE.
    Overload rework. Power Overload now does physical damage and grants you the power of a tornado: You throw a brick at the target with a light attack, and you hammer your head into that brick with every heavy attack. We have decreased its Ultimate cost, but increased the chance that you get stuck in the animation.

    I found this change confusing as well. I see it creating an even wider divide between builds that can sustain with blue food and those that can't. Is this a hidden altmer nerf/breton buff? I'm not sure, but I am glad my mag toons are bretons right now.

    Sigh, of course they were nerfed. Wunderbar...

    It will be interesting to see how the meta shifts, but I don't think this was necessary either.

    It will be a bit of a buff to sustain based races since blue food will be stronger relative to the purple and yellow food.
    Playing since beta...

    On another thread I've been discussing how people feel forced to be vampires in order to get those sustain bonuses (the actual value of which is a topic of debate) without losing damage. Driving people to use blue food is only going to make that perceived pressure worse. Please offer us a larger variety of ways to improve our sustain. Vampirism is currently the only one (I believe) that doesn't impact damage.

    The lower stats from food/drink will likely mean squishier players and more deaths in Elsweyr. But that is OK. This food is used in group content, not solo. And when you die in group content, a group member can rez you and get you back in the fight. It is not like solo play where you are stuck in that stupid slow-moving ghost form after you rez. ;-)

    I run Clockwork Citrus on a few of my characters but usually have the Witch Mother's Brew on my bar to use for easier content because the GOLD Clockwork Citrus food does cost a bit to make with using Perfect Roe.

    I also use the Artaeum Takeaway Broth with the Dubious Cameron Throne on my bar for easier content on my stamina characters, especially with the GOLD Artaeum Takeaway drink using 5 Mother of Pearl to make.

    Why even have Purple and Gold food/drink if they cost so much to make but are not going to be any better than the many other foods/drinks in this game?

    Now I don't sell any of these, nor do I sell any of the ingredients to make these recipes, but I can see how this is going to hurt others that do sell them.

    Seems ZOS has "re balance" on the brain and are taking things a little overboard with the concept of making everything in the game virtually the same.



    Completely agree on everything and also why would you want everything in the game to be the same, are we now robots playing ESO. seems zos wants a brand new person to come into game and do what cp 810 can do and have all the achievements and benefits they have accomplished, just so they can leave and never play again in a couple months

    Really ZOS Really quit cratering to the new players who cant afford to make the better foods and drinks and start thinking about your long term players.

    It's only a loss of about ~200 health and ~200 magicka/stamina.

    Umm, I'm guessing this was sarcasm, but just in case it wasn't...well, let's just say you might want to read the rest of the patch notes.

    You do know that they ALSO changed that? In PTS you're a ghost for 3sec, regardless if you ress yourself or got ressed by team mates =) Just lile btw.

    They said 12% and 15% respectively. This makes sense in stamina department (since orc and dunmer were over-dpsing sustain races), but in magicka this will give additional edge to breton?
