  • Food and drink durations

    I got curious, which is a dangerous thing. So I made up a list of the durations of various foods and drinks in EQ. As near as I can tell, the number listed is the number of real-world minutes that the food or drink will last if you right click it. It lasts twice as long when eaten normally (without clicking it). Keep in mind that times will vary depending on who you are, whether you have a horse, and what zones you visit (for instance, water is used up faster in some desert zones).

    It turns out there are about 500 types of food and more than 50 types of drink. More than 60 percent of the foods are 'meal', and most of the drinks are 'drink'. It appears that the categories are

    1-5 snack/whistle wetter
    6-20 meal/drink
    21-30 hearty meal/refreshing drink
    31-40 banquet size meal/lasting drink
    41-50 feast/flowing drink
    51-60 enduring meal/enduring drink
    61-240 miraculous meal/miraculous drink

    My spelling should be correct, although the capitalization isn't. I believe all player-made (or fished or foraged) items are listed, but there may be some store-bought items or rare drops still missing. (btw Dawnshroud Seeds, Arctic Clams, and Sewer Catfish do not exist. Also it seems that Honey Mush Bread and Catfish Croak Sandwich don't exist.)

    Almost all of the information comes from Lucy ( There are still about 20 items in the list for which I don't know the duration. None of the items actually have parentheses -- all the comments in parentheses are my notes.

    Sylphan? I'd love to get a guide to food/drink durations up on the site. Would you like to tweak, nudge, modify, add, etc. anything to your post so I can throw it up as a page on the site?


    • #3
      I'd be happy to see this information added to a page on your site.

      I was quite thorough before posting anything here, so that I wouldn't need to tweak anything. The only untested claim is that one 'duration' equals one real-world minute, everything else is accurate. It's possible that one 'duration' is only 48 seconds real-time. Do you suppose it's necessary to correct the capitalization? I think it's good to go. I actually hope someone will discover a few foods I missed, but I can't find any. It would also be nice to find out exactly which zones use water (or food) faster than normal, but I'm not going to do it.

      The one thing still missing is the actual durations of foods with the ??. And the only way I know to get that information is to get someone to send those items in to Lucy. There's no telling how long that will take.

      I also thought of adding some comments and observations, but that's not appropriate for a page. For instance, the ones with negative durations should be reported as bugs. The few errors on the fishing and foraging tables should be fixed. A few spelling errors could be corrected (for instance there is no 'flask of water', it's 'water flask', and there is no 'sifaye pickles', it's 'pickled sifaye'). The gap of more than 8-to-1 foods to drinks seems unfair to brewers. There are no store-bought miraculous foods or drinks, but there are some enduring. A 17-lb. fetid bass lasts a lot longer than a 25-lb. (humongous) fetid bass. For some reason there aren't any 24-lb. fetid bass, but every other number from 1 to 25. Most people don't realize that MTPs last a lot longer than Halas Pies, or that Dried Seaweed lasts longer than anything else. Justice Fruit and Habanero Peppers have impressive durations, considering they're foraged. There are two kinds of 'muffin' and two kinds of 'birthday cake'. The three types of 'jumjum stalk' are actually a problem because it's not possible for a bazaar trader to set the different types to different prices. Slicing a birthday cake doesn't accomplish anything, it still has the same total duration. Shaped cookies last longer than cookies made without a cookie cutter. Most fished fish last 15 but some only last 10, or are inedible.

        Thank you so much for this wonderfully organized list of foods and drinks. Iíd hoped to find something like this for a while now. My main is currently a Vah Shir shaman and as one of the kitty people I just canít seem to find enough to eat and drink. So I prefer to keep longer duration food and drink in my pack rather than milk and bread. Plus I just like making them. For food heís been making patty melts, which also raises his baking skill. But there isnít much in the way of drinks he can brew. This is a particular shame, as heíll hit 250 brewing in two more points. One hundred and twenty combines of Kaladim Constitutionals without a skill up and counting.

        So I was hoping I would find a long lasting drink I could brew instead of buying Fuzzlecutter Formula 5000. Grobb Liquidized Meat isnít hard to brew, but runs about 10 or 11 gold each to make. The Formula 5000 drink runs about 2 gold each to buy. The other drinks Iím familiar with arenít any cheaper to make or else are very time consuming to find supplies for. Granted, the 5000 drink lacks stats, but all I want at the moment is cheapish long lasting drink, the drink equivalent of patty melts.

        Thanks to your list I now know what choices I really have. It looks like Iíll be paying that gnome in Freeport several more visits until Iím no longer pinching every copper for supplies to attempt my brewing trophy.

        Thanks again for all your hard work.

          *sheepish look*

          After going and saying all that, I found some things to add:

            In case yer wonderin'.....

            one time unit is 84 seconds (if you eat the food automatically, rather than force feeding yourself)

            For example, rations (15) have a duration of
            15 x 84 sec = 1260 sec = 36 min

            Should be 144 seconds: /bonk Poji[/i]

              Two things PojiPiemaker....

              15 x 84 sec = 1260 sec = 36 min
              15x84=1260, sure, but 1260 seconds is only 21 minutes.

              Second, it is very well known that MTP's last very close to 4 hours each. That would mesh with the estimation that 120 is the force feed length in minutes, and 240 minutes is if you don't force it.

              Though well known, I have not seen it tested specifically.

              By your formula a MTP would only last 168 minutes, under 3 hours.

              Do you have a link to where you got this information, I'd like to see some hard data.

                Sorry, somewhere I lost a minute. ops: (Sorry- was trying to do to much in my head and not enough on the calculator. Got to excited reading this but I had to hurry to get to work)

                One food/drink unit is good for 144 seconds, if ya let yerself eat it automatically.

                I got this from from the foods I've tested the durations of. (Incidently, MTP's last 4 hr 48 min)

                I gotta remember not to rush next time- or at least double check my numbers.

                15 x 144 sec = 2160 sec = 36 min

                  The new searches at Allakhazam's are mostly misleading, but they did allow me to add a few more:

                  Saucy bunnymeat is nodrop.

                  20 Holpa Glub

                  Hearty meal:
                  25 Holpa Mlech

                  I'm still seeing claims from 48 seconds to 72 seconds for one 'time unit' (and double when not force-fed). So more testing is still needed, both with and without horses.

                    These numbers are relative to eachother, never absolute. There are modifiers for each race, class, as well as zone, to determine how fast you consume food and drink.

                      Might want to add the new Party Plater;

                        48 x 1.5 (Innitiate Metabolism 3) = 72 maybe?

                          experimental data

                          Ok, here's some data, and I plan on adding to it...

                          sliced wedding cake is listed as 2 duration food

                          I tend to trust the listed durations as water flasks, berries and iron rations comparative durations seem to be dead on.

                          When I was using berries I would eat nearly twice as many as water flasks, using iron rations it's closer to 9 rations for 15 water.

                          So... I stuffed myself with food, then kept trying to eat a slice of cake till I succeded and logged the time... then kept trying to eat... and again wrote down the time...

                          xx:08:53 --> bite of cake
                          xx:11:10 --> bite of cake ....

                          Wait... that's OVER 2 minutes.... well I was getting spammed, must have just missed the eat at one minute...

                          xx:08:53 --> bite of cake
                          xx:11:10 --> bite of cake
                          xx:13:29 --> bite of cake

                          Hmm... 2:17 between the first two.... 2:19 between the second two ... force feeding...

                          Anyone else want to try this out? Slice of Birthday Cake isn't too expensive. Stuff yourself and check out how long between bites of cake. That should give us a good comparison of the "relative" duration of foods.

                          I was using a Dark Elf in PoK. (in case race/zone make a difference)

                          Could also use Malted Milk (cheap and easy)

                          Will post more data as I check things out... Had bought KEI and Virtue (well above 46 so no twink hating please *grin*) and was only doing this while transfering things around between my wife and I and our bazaar trader. (can't wait till shared bank space)

                          I suck at this game, your mileage WILL vary. My path is probably NON-optimal.

                              yes, Sewer Catfish did exist in all of cabilis and FV..... but..... when they "updated" the fishing tables, the sewer catfish vanished.... they are now currently on the TEST server ONLY at the moment
                              Actually, you can still catch them in FV along with the Salt Minnow. Not sure about in Cabilis, they don't like HIE's there much
