One of the prime reasons I leveled cooking was to make buff food, such as Regen X Mana per second. I use these just before a big fight, and must spend 10 seconds eating for the buff to take effect. With the change, this is no longer possible, as Im already at full health, and so cant eat. Now I have to find a way to damage myself enough so I can eat for 10 seconds, right before a boss fight?
Is this really the intention? If so, its a sad day. Id ask you either reverse this, or consider removing the eat time requirement from buff food. (I know, I know, this isnt the suggestion forum, but Im not yet sure if this is a suggestion or unintended effect.)
