Some virtual Pork Barrels may have been harmed in the making of that bacon.

What you use explosives to get them open to get the bacon out? Thought some virtual pigs would of been the ones to get harmed?

Glad to see it back, it looks a little more cooked this time around...but wasn't there three strips before? All part of the great baconspiracy I guess. ;)

It was one of the first things noticed in guild after the patch. There was much rejoicing!

Also, sorry that this didn't make it into the Release Notes. There was a mis-placement in the bug on this in regards to which update it was targeted for, so we failed to get this into the notes. Obviously, this is the most significant change in Update 20, so we apologize. :)

If I remember correctly, the number of strips depends on your guild-level (or maybe ship-size). Our Stormglory Typhoon (level 90 guild) definitely has 3 strips smoking away!

oh great, yet another stealth nerf. there is nothing quite as powerful as a half orc barbarian raging over the lack of bacon. now we have it back they are all pacified and happily munching away in the galley while damsels weep in distress! ok sure the damsels might sound quite manly, and may indeed be imposters, but that's not the point, at the end of the day there is still a chest with loot in it to be had and now the half orc barbarians are too busy making bacon cakes to help us get the loot!

gah!

I have a 28pt, level 20 Barbarian which I soloed (with Cleric Hires) all the way to 20, He spent the first 10 or so levels on Elite quests getting Bravery bonus, but dropped down to Normal when I couldn't open on elite with an Alt any more. One of my More enjoyable runs to 20 as well.

He recently ran the End of the Road on Heroic Normal, without a Cleric, shrined once at the first shrine, and forgot at the second one before the boss, he still completed it. Yes he was one level above the quest, but I was finishing the chain.

Does this mean my Barbarian Rocks!!!! ?

P.S. Do you think He stole all the Bacon from the Airships, maybe that's why he's awesome?

P.P.S Though I think maybe the real secret is the 20 temp hp every 6 seconds

A snide but honest question, and I do apologize for the snideness of it.

Who only cooks one strip of bacon when I'd expect the ship's galley to have a stock of bacon? That is the one thing I never understood.

It's magic bacon. You take a strip away and another one instantly appears.

When you make your bacon from dragon meat, you try to make it last.

They are just prepping the pan with bacon grease before cooking the meal. That strip of bacon is for the chef. Steal at your own peril.

You don't make bacon, you make dragon cheese steak sandwhichiess!

And if you can, Jerry, see if you can't find and old 2.0 Dragonomicon to see what you'd have to do to prepare the meat. I don't think the 3.x ever went into those details. (I forget). Seriously, I'd you want to choose which "color" dragon to use carefully. Copper or Brass would probably be your better bets. White may work, just have to really season it. Don't even bother with black.

Ah, a good logical answer. I can approve of such.

edit: But I'd still want more bacon. ;)

I know working our way up through the ship classes we had 1, 2, then 3 strips. I don't recall which ships had which though.

Research time!

Windspyre Sparrow: 1 fresh bacon strip, 1 small dining table, and 1 hammock (and 1 cargo net usable as a hammock). And you cannot stand in the wok, so no custom meals (fried halfling, frog, etc)

Stormglory Bolt: ?
Windspyre Falcon: ?

Stormglory Tempest: 2 fresh bacon strips and 1 well-done and 2 long tables for eating. Custom meals available.

Of course bacon does something. But only players that have been around from 2006 to 2008 know this.

This weekend, walking around the yard I noticed our Chives were up, and thus Bacon was on my mind (see link below). I saw there was a dev post on a thread named Bacon!, and then I found it was mine.
