When does food expire in Star Ocean Divine Force?
You'll notice that food in Star Ocean: The Divine Force has certain numbers. They represent how many battles certain food types last. You'll get five battles before it disappears. The good news is that you can extend it with specific passive skills. For food to last longer, you must get Passive Abilities called Food Feelings for certain characters.
They give you a chance not to reduce the number after a battle. The default percentage for these abilities is 20%, but you can increase the chance by investing skill points. Here are some of the buffs you get by consuming food in Star Ocean: The Divine Force:
- Earth Resistance +20 and 15% damage dealt to plants.
