Prior to H&H, I would always be running around my base and building with just a single piece of honey.
Now, honey is still good for a simple stamina boost but it barely adds any health now, which is a problem if I ever fall more than two inches.
Also, even with a max level black metal shield, I cannot block deathsquitos with only 33 max total health. I’ve already died twice while mining in the plains because I’ve forgotten that max health is now tied to how much damage you can block.
So, I’ve now just recently adopted wolf jerky as my simple food item. It gives 33/33 health/stamina instead of 8/35, and it also lasts 30 minutes instead of 15. Plus, you get two pieces to eat for every one piece of honey and raw wolf meat.
Honey generates passively on its own, and I get more wolf meat than I can cook into wolf skewers at any one time from a single “You are being hunted” event, so wolf jerky seems to be in pretty much endless supply!
