Hatched Chili uses

Will there be more uses for hatched chillies 🌶?
I managed to unlock the shirt and banner skins and rock on emote by using WvW reward track potions that I saved.
I now have access to a new repeatable WvW reward track that gives hatched chillies 🌶 but I don’t see much use for them currently.

    You could also just hoard them. Hoarding is always good in this game. I'm sure by the end of the "saga" there will be something that requires 500 of them.

    Yep, you are almost guaranteed to have a legendary trinket that will require 250 and another 250 are likely to be needed for some Skyscale style "legendary" reward.

    There is a title that requires 500 peppers. Peppers are also used in cooking (at least 2 recipes). The food is not very interesting, though. It seems that it is meant for some future collection or quest rather than for food effects.

    I think that after you get all new skins/decorations/achievements daily home instance node farming will be sufficient to create a small stockpile of peppers for future legendary/collection.

    Would love if we could consume for volatile magic, trade for other map currencies, or use in ascended food recipes...

    Anything but a resource conversion vendor, please. I rather consume them for volatile WITHOUT a karma loss.

    I think the main issue I have with the Chili's are that they don't have a vendor value OR can be consumed into Volatile magic. We've always been able to do one or the other with map currency but with this one you can't and I'm not sure the reasoning behind it.

    In seasons 3 and 4 there was magic as a secondary maps currency for all maps and you could always convert/consume the primary map currencies to the secondary/magic.

    In S5/Saga there is no magic anymore as secondary map currency and as a result there is no convert/consume to gain this secondary currency anymore.

    I don't know, why Anet changed this in S5/Saga. Maybe its because they wanted to give Karma more usefulness.

    I probably throw away a stack of chillies every week or two because there is no use for them any more and I have 2000 in the bank already.

    Its the equivalent of https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Bowl_of_Sweet_and_Spicy_Butternut_Squash_Soup, which was the best power DPS food before ascended food was introduced.

    Still of no use to me.

    Just because it is of no use to you does not mean they have no use.

    How about a universal stat changing item?

    Sell item for X chili and maybe some karma or whatever. It will take the place of the exotic insignia/inscription in the stat changing recipe and the resulting item will be a piece of stat selectable gear.

    The problem is that ascended foods exist now and they are both better and cheaper than the moa wings

    Ok, so I looked it up.

    According to GW2 efficiency:
    Bowl of Spicy Butternut Squash Soup = 41s 45c
    Plate of Spicy Moa wings = 35s 22c
    Peppercorn-Crusted Sous-Vide Steak = 39s 14c
    Cilantro Lime Sous-Vide Steak = 37s 88c

    But since both feasts last 1hr, they are technically half the price of the Moa wings. Definitely a problem.

    Even if ANET reverted the duration of Butternut Soup back to 1hr and did the same for Moa Wings, the ascended food would still be superior because it has extra suffixes (+karma, etc) and can feed multiple people.
