Eating (and drinking) for Stamina Recovery
Stamina recovers on its own, but if you have a challenging fight ahead or want to sprint for longer than this effect can be helpful. Stamina recovery is granted by fruits, vegetables, eggs, and of course, water. Remember that the water effect stacks with stamina recovery effects from food, but the food versions last MUCH longer.
Possible stamina effects:
Water Effect: Cures Burning, 0.3 stamina/second + 10 hot weather defense for 180 seconds
Stamina Recovery 1: 0.4 stamina/second for 900 seconds
Stamina Recovery 2: 0.6 stamina/second for 900 seconds
Stamina Recovery 3: 0.8 stamina/second for 900 seconds
Gaberries (or Boiled Gaberries)
– Grants 75 food value and Stamina Recovery 1
– May not seem like much but it is still superior in rate and duration than drinking water, and stacks with it. Probably not worth cooking them unless they are about to rot, since the raw form is needed for making jam. However, you may want to stockpile some in your stash for use in Meat Stew and Gaberry Jam/Tartine (covered later).
Miner’s Omelette (3 servings) – Any Egg + Any Egg + Common Mushroom (raw)
– Grants 175 food value and Stamina Recovery 3 + Health Recovery 1
– If you really dig that stamina regen than this recipe is for you. Be warned, however, that there are potentially better uses for eggs (Pungent Paste) and Common Mushrooms (Poison Antidote via alchemy), depending on your needs.
