Does this helps automaton gaining skills?
- No, the effect is only granted to you. You would need something that does "Automaton: Grants Food Effect" for them to be able to get it. For now, just use a Percolator.
I believe 300 is an incorrect low for this food. I was using Elshena until my parry, evasion, and great katana was in the low 300s, then switch to montagna after the elshena wore off. Skill ups were obviously lower right away, in such a way that it was like I wasn't using food. I don't know when Montagna's skill-up rate increase start, but I speculate that it may start at 320, the speculated skill range high for elshena. If I get anymore data I'll post my findings.--Sikekiz (talk) 14:19, February 11, 2013 (UTC)
