Rookswort + Butterfly Milk = High Mood w/ Big Energy Tank

For all those who say it's very hard to keep your mood high with a big energy tank, I'm not finding it to be that onerous or difficult at all.  You do have to munch rookswort every 10 minutes, or TP home and go into cultivate/decorate mode if you just want to hang out and chat or go afk, but otherwise it isn't a very big deal.  If you forget for a while, gulp some butterfly milk and boom you're right back up to 100% mood.

It seems like if you're having that much trouble keeping your mood up - you're doing it wrong.  ;)

  • Savory smoothies are my favorite. :) haven't tried rookswort, but I do mean to try it one day.

  • Fleep, there is no right or wrong way to play this game! ;]
    I personally do not want to have to constantly be *worried* about low mood,
    while I am searching auctions, chatting with friends and/or the new people I
    meet while out and about, wandering the fine streets of Ur.

  • If you chomp on rookswort you wouldn't have to worry! I've traded in my no-no addiction for some herb ;) It's herb so it must be better for you right???

  • Before the switch max size was 2.8k....we have people running around with 4K tank sizes, yours is 1.6k.

    It's not that people don't know about milks, savory smoothies, or rookswort. They do.

    It is that now if you lapse on rookswort (it's a really small circle) for a few minutes they need TONS of milk.

    If it seems like you're not having that much trouble keeping your mood up-you have a small tank. Not that there's anything wrong with that :P

  • My vote is for Savory Smoothies and Butterfly Milk. I definitely prefer the smoothies to the milk, though. I've never tried Rookswort but I'll give it a try since I have a few.

  • I still prefer no-no than rookswort ;D . @arabesque: well some herbs are... addictive ;D .
    I like very very smelly cheese for getting mood, but that is for quick mood boost.

  • Savory Smoothies are the bomb! You can get a ~35% mood boost from them, and since they're percentage based, it's proportional to your max mood!

  • I'm hoarding my Rookswort for potions right now, so I've been using Savory Smoothies and the odd Cosma or two, since I get so many of the latter from harvesting.

    Coke: I believe the Savory Smoothie doles out mood boosts based on your current mood level, not your max mood.  Still, it's a pretty solid booster!

    On a related note: I highly recommend Humbabella's post on energy/mood costs.  It has some handy tips on how to use Savory Smoothies and other drinks to keep your mood up.

  • Are you sure the max size was 2.8 pre-change? I seem to remember having a lot more than that.

  • Rookswort is a truly great stuff. I just wish there was a way to stack the effect, like eat ten at a time for a longer duration.

  • But, doesnt rookswort only work during a rook attack? (That's what the description says, anyway)

  • That's the ESSENCE @buttercup, not the herb itself which is munched.

  • RAWR, gotcha
    Posted 3 years ago by Innie✿, Obviously Subscriber! | Permalink
  • Buttercup you are looking at the essence not the herb.

  • Savory Smoothies, Ruminate Icons, and Quaff Amorous Philtre.

  • Amorous philtre rocks, esp because you get share the buff.

  • Meditating is proving to be quite profitable for me in the new UR - up to 120 points when I mediate for mood.  Plus my emblems add about 300 per day.  I am finding it harder to keep it up than in old Ur though - with my piggies and harvest lifestyle, I always had max mood.  Not so anymore - I do have to watch it carefully.
