Glowing star fruit is best food for the buck!
I am always looking for a REAL DEAL when leveling my pets. I am one of the many wizards who due to the economy is forced to level my pets the economic way. I farm for items to sell, then use the gold I have earned to buy food for my pet or pets that I am working on. Some foods are very expensive for a max of 6 points such as - cracker jacks cereal, or the medium pretzel which offer 6 points per game and costs 2250 in gold. I have found that the Glowing Star Fruit is around 350 to 450 in gold and offers 6 points per game if your pet doesn't like it and even more in points if it likes or loves it.
You probably wonder why I would choose to share such valuble information? Well, I figure if it helps one pet reach it's potential it is a good thing.... Or by me sharing this information someone may have something just as valuble to share that we may benefit from as well.
For a pet to reach epic it is 1000 points. Take this and use some math you find the following to be true:
Games give an average of 4 points per game then add food points and get a total of advancement...
1000 divided by 10 = 100 games
(100 games times 450.00 in gold = 45,000 in gold)
vs a higher price food
(100 games times 2250 in gold = 225,000 in gold)
180,000 saved ;-) = ( a whole lot of savings when you have to farm for gold)
Please note that this outcome is based on doing well at the games.
