|Ras Malai (Kenji)|
|VRMMORPG||Sword Art Online|
«Ras Malai» (ラス・マライ) is a special dessert item sold in a small out-of-the-way Indian-style restaurant on the 2nd Floor of Aincrad in Sword Art Online, in the town of Urbus. It became an early favourite of gourmet Airi Natsume.
Kenji has described ras malai as "a rich cheesecake without a crust".
The true benefit of the meal is the buff it infers. Consumption of a single full serving grants a 24-hour enhancement to one's chances of inflicting DoT affects. Airi Natsume's Dire Wolf Claws are an example of equipment that are empowered by the buff. Sword Skills that inflict a bleeding status, such as the one-handed curved sword's Leaver, are likewise enhanced by this buff as well.
Behind the scenes
- Ras malai is a Bengali and Punjabi dessert.
- Kenji theorises that the Dire Wolf Claws where placed on the lowest floors to take advantage of this buff item.
- Before obtaining the sword-skill Leaver this buff did nothing for Kenji because he didn't have any DoT attacks.
