Purchasable MP Restorers

Below is a list of MP restorers that can be bought from in game stores. There are many more MP restorers which can be found as monster drops, but as such cannot be given a meat value and will cost adventures to acquire.

Magical Mystery Juice

Magical mystery juice costs 100 meat or 95 meat if you are wearing Travoltan trousers. The amount of MP restored equals (1.5 * level) + (4 to 6). Note: If you are farming and using Magical mystery juice you should use this instead of the A Comfy Sofa when you have 333.4 or higher MPA (Meat Per Adventure) however there may be better alternatives at some level.

Restoring HP by buying MP-restores and healing

Skill Comparison

The relative cost of different skills remain the same no matter how much Meat each MP costs. Doubling meat costs per MP will affect all skills equally, and as such the choice on the relative efficiency of skills can be determined by looking at a single Meat/MP set of charts. There is also no reason to use a more expensive MP restorer if you have access to a cheaper one, although with these charts you will know exactly how much you save.

The determining factors on which skill to use are:

  • Are you at risk of wastage from overhealing. If your HP is 10/20 then lasagna bandages will be better than adventurer of leisure disco nap, since both will heal you to max HP but Lasagna Bandages is cheaper per cast.
  • If no overhealing will occur, then the choice of skill depends on your current MP cost reducers. Which are hard capped at -3 cost per skill.

Not taking into account Cannelloni Cocoon. Disco Nap is always the worst while Disco Nap upgraded with Adventurer of Leisure is always the best. Without MP discounts Tongue of Walrus is in second place, but with MP reduction (any between -1 to -3) it drops to 3rd place. Lasagna Bandages start out at 3rd place, rising to 2nd with MP reducers. Every point of MP reduction makes Lasagna Bandages close the gap towards 1st place. But it never quite reaches it.

Cannelloni Cocoon efficiency varies based on how much HP you are healing. The breakeven point where it equals Disco Leisure Nap depends only on your MP discount and shows up at the same spot on all the charts below.

  • At no MP discount it ties for first place at 100HP healed.
  • At -1 MP discount it is 2nd best at 108HP and best at 109HP (the breakeven point is 108.571428571429 HP)
  • At -2 MP discount it ties for first place at 120HP healed.
  • At -3 MP discount it ties for first place at 136HP healed.

10+ Meat/MP

Many restorers require unlocking. Because 9 meat/MP restorers are available immediately without need to unlock, no charts are provided for 10+ Meat/MP restorers. As they are never economical.
