When you explore the wilds of Tamriel long enough, the “taste boredom” of the repetitive small game on a spit will set in. The adventurer’s palate will long for a diet with more variety and flavour.
There are two types of provisioning products: Food and Drink. Food increases the players resource pools (Total Health, Magicka, and/or Stamina) and drinks increase the player’s regeneration of resource pools (Health, Magicka, and/or Stamina Regeneration). There are seven possible combinations: Health, Magicka, Stamina, Health and Magicka, Health and Stamina, Magicka and Stamina, and all three.
Single resource products are green. Two resource items are blue. Three resource items are purple. There is a special yellow product (Experience potion) which is created by very rare item obtained by fishing.
