Last updated on Feb 28, 2020 at 12:07 by Blainie 1 comment

Patch 8.3 introduced a set of food that players can craft using Cooking which will directly enhance their performance in Horrific Visions.

1.

Crafting Food for Horrific Visions

In order to be able to create the Horrific Visions food, players will first need to find the Tome of Unspeakable Delicacies Icon Tome of Unspeakable Delicacies, which drops fairly frequently from the mobs in the assault zones (Uldum and Vale of Eternal Blossoms).

This will give you access to all 5 recipes for Cooking, which are as follows:

Food Reagents Effect
Baked Voidfin Icon Baked Voidfin 8x Aberrant Voidfin Icon Aberrant Voidfin, 3x Questionable Meat Icon Questionable Meat, 3x Aromatic Fish Oil Icon Aromatic Fish Oil, 4x Wild Flour Icon Wild Flour Movement Speed
Dubious Delight Icon Dubious Delight 8x Questionable Meat Icon Questionable Meat, 3x Wild Flour Icon Wild Flour, 3x Aromatic Fish Oil Icon Aromatic Fish Oil, 4x Fresh Potato Icon Fresh Potato CC Reduction
Ghastly Goulash Icon Ghastly Goulash 8x Questionable Meat Icon Questionable Meat, 5x Aberrant Voidfin Icon Aberrant Voidfin, 3x Malformed Gnasher Icon Malformed Gnasher, 3x Aromatic Fish Oil Icon Aromatic Fish Oil, Health Regen
Grilled Gnasher Icon Grilled Gnasher 8x Malformed Gnasher Icon Malformed Gnasher, 3x Questionable Meat Icon Questionable Meat, 3x Aromatic Fish Oil Icon Aromatic Fish Oil, 4x Foosaka Icon Foosaka Aggro Range Reduction
K'Bab Icon K'Bab 8x Questionable Meat Icon Questionable Meat, 3x Malformed Gnasher Icon Malformed Gnasher, 3x Aberrant Voidfin Icon Aberrant Voidfin, 3x Aromatic Fish Oil Icon Aromatic Fish Oil Sanity Restoration
1.1.

Assault-Specific Materials

All of the foods requires materials that can only be obtained in the new assault zones.

Both Aberrant Voidfin Icon Aberrant Voidfin and Malformed Gnasher Icon Malformed Gnasher are obtained through fishing, while Questionable Meat Icon Questionable Meat drops from mobs in the assaults.

1.1.1.

Farming Questionable Meat

Generally, the most efficient spots to farm Questionable Meat Icon Questionable Meat are located in Uldum. While the Vale does have mobs that can drop it, such as the packs of Fairlands Gazelles, you will generally find more mobs to kill in Uldum.

Aim to kill the Scavenging Dunerunner hyenas or the Arid Bonepicker vultures to farm up some meat.

2.

Best Situations to Use Each Food

Each of the foods has its own situational use, with some being used more often than others.

  • Baked Voidfin Icon Baked Voidfin — this is useful as a general movement speed buff, especially when you are trying to beat the Sanity timers on Mask runs.
  • Dubious Delight Icon Dubious Delight — this is the least useful, as the major CC abilities from bosses normally drain Sanity and should be avoided anyway, but it can see some use on trash packs that can stun.
  • Ghastly Goulash Icon Ghastly Goulash — this does a solid amount of healing, especially for classes that lack survivability/self-healing.
  • Grilled Gnasher Icon Grilled Gnasher — for classes that cannot stealth but want to skip trash packs (such as in Cathedral Square) to move through the Visions quickly, this can be very useful. Note that if you cast anything or move too close to enemies, they will detect you and attack.
  • K'Bab Icon K'Bab — this is by far the most useful food and can regenerate a massive amount of Sanity over the duration of your runs. Note that, as your cloak rank increases and the passive Sanity loss drops, this food becomes more and more effective.
