Groceries are a type of consumable item that restores HP or MP over a period of time. Once activated, stats are restored 6 times over 30 seconds meaning stats increase every 5 seconds. They can be purchased from Grocery Merchants who are available in most towns or they can be received as quest rewards.
All groceries must be consumed while sitting. If the character stands after activating, the grocery is terminated.
These foods can only be obtained from quests.
These drinks can only be obtained from quests.
In earlier Epics (pre Epic ~7.2), the next grocery was available every 20 levels. Back then, the type of grocery was an indication of which stat it restored. Food restored HP and Drinks restored MP. In later Epics, more groceries were added to include more level increments, but the pattern of the type of grocery was not continued. Therefore players should double check which stat a grocery restores before purchasing.
Prior to Epic 8.1, groceries could be consumed while standing. Characters did not have to be sitting for them to be activated and used.
