[Top 5] FF14 Best Tank Food

FF14 Best Tank Food
Tank and their daily bread


Who doesn’t need a consistent three-times-a-day meal?

We all need that daily nutrition to cover, right? And in Final Fantasy XIV, the meals ‘nutritions’ are specified for each role. Whether you main Melee DPS, Magic DPS, Healer, or Tank you need to know what are the best meals for you! The variations of meals in Final Fantasy XIV are astounding, there are a lot of options. Other than giving 3% additional experience, each meal boosts different statuses, and the effects last for 30 minutes. You can always extend it by taking the same meal or else you will lose the previous effect from the meal and the timer will reset, when you take a different one.

Now, you need to know what each status boosts, so you can pick the right meal to do the job. If you main are tanks, lucky for you cause I made the list of food you can get for your tank. For tanks, you have to choose between 3 options, having quicker skill rotation, hit harder, or be tougher. Here I’m going to include all 3 so don’t you worry! All the meals here are available on the Market Boards, so help yourself!

5. Sausage and Sauerkraut (iLevel 480)

"Aromatic, herb-seasoned meat and pickled cabbage come together in a mouthwatering combination."

Sausage and Sauerkraut is the first one for being the cheaper option if you want a faster skill rotation. This meal boosts your vitality for additional health, the critical rate for the additional amount of damage given, and skill speed for faster weapon skills and auto-attack

NQ Status:

  • Critical Hit 8% max 134
  • Vitality 8% max 172
  • Skill Speed 8% max 81

HQ Status:

  • Critical Hit 10% max 168
  • Vitality 10% max 215
  • Skill Speed 10% max 101 

4. Pizza (iLevel 510)

"A simple-but-satisfying dish of thinly worked dough topped with tomatoes and cheese, baked in a wood-fired oven until crispy."

You should go with Pizza if you want to hit harder. Pizza gives both Direct Hit Rate and Determination additional status. Direct Hit Rate affects the rate of which your attack lands on a direct hit, dealing slightly more damage than normal hits, whilst Determination affects the amount of damage dealt.

NQ Status:

  • Direct Hit Rate 8% max 143
  • Vitality 8% max 208
  • Determination 8% max 86

HQ Status:

  • Direct Hit Rate 10% max 179
  • Vitality 10% max 260
  • Determination 10% max 108

3. Broad Bean Curry (iLevel 510)

"Broad beans stewed with fragrant spices, served with a side of steamed rice."

If you want to be tougher and hit harder, you should go with this meal. Tenacity is only applicable to the role tank. Tenacity affects both damage dealt and received. The more the value, the more damage dealt, the less damage taken.

NQ Status:

  • Tenacity 8% max 143
  • Vitality 8% max 208 
  • Determination 8% max 86

HQ Status:

  • Tenacity 10% max 179
  • Vitality 10% max 260
  • Determination 10% max 108

2. Chicken Fettuccine (iLevel 510)

"Flat, thick pasta smothered in a rich cream sauce with tender slices of chicken thigh."

This one is the more expensive version of Sausage and Sauerkraut. This also gives you better skill speed if that is what you desire.

NQ Status:

  • Critical Hit 8% max 143
  • Vitality 8% max 208
  • Skill Speed 8% max 86

HQ Status:

  • Critical Hit 10% max 179
  • Vitality 10% max 260
  • Skill Speed 10% max 108

1. Lemon Muffin (iLevel 510)

"A sweet and zesty muffin made by mixing lemonette rind and juice into the dough."

Differ from Broad Bean Curry, this one has lower Tenacity but more Determination. Upon taking this meal, you will receive slightly more damage but hit harder. This is also a rather expensive meal, so be sure to save it for when needed.

NQ Status:

  • Determination 8% max 143
  • Vitality 8% max 208
  • Tenacity 8% max 86

HQ Status:

  • Determination 10% max 179
  • Vitality 10% max 260
  • Tenacity 10% max 108

These are the best tank meals that are available right now. You can choose from this list, and I leave it for you to decide! I hope you are hungry for more experience in Eorzea, see ya~
