    Default New tank survival food vs old one

    Ember Steak:
    16 dodge
    16 parry
    435 health

    Dwarven Goulash:
    14 block
    815 health

    Question: Is the extra 380 health worth more or less than the 16 dodge and parry? Assuming the block is going to be near useless to compare with because majority of endgamer tanks will be double capped anyway.

    Parry only benefits rogues, no?? So for a cleric its a useless stat anyway, correct me if I am wrong though
    if that is the case then its only the -2 dodge your would trade for 380hp

    Parry works for all classes.

    Despite Block softcaps and the fact Rogues cannot block, the new food will be best for all classes. Effective health is absolute king in ID and the mitigation differences are so minor.

    There's new food that grants deflect and has 815 HP on it specifically for rogue tanks.

    Over all the health gain is going to out weigh the 16 parry and dodge. Parry scales so terribly that is only minor gain, Hp is going to be better.

    Btw WTF Trion with Rich bacon drop rates?

    From the number guy myself, here is the TEHP from each food, based off current BiS.

    Ember Steak:
    5358.07 - HP
    2976.93 - Dodge
    2030.34 - Parry
    10365.34

    Dwarven Goulash:
    10038.68 - HP
    1551.99 - Block
    11590.68


    So as you can see, and as has been previously stated, the new foods increased HP is what counts, significantly more than the parry/dodge.

    Cheers for replies, it's what I was expecting although the ingredients of new food are offputting (damn you rich bacon).

    I was not aware of deflect food. Though I guess it would odd not to add it.
    Nope.

    This x1000. The fact that the new tank food uses bacon and bacon is almost literally the most valuable item in the game at the moment (in a plat per hour sense for farming) it makes the new food an impractical choice. Old food or feasts it is.
