Meat WoW food

Meat is a type of food in WoW

Meat is one of World of Warcraft's six main types of food. Meat in WoW represents the edible flesh of beasts and similar animals. The edible flesh of fully aquatic animals falls under fish.

Types of meat[]

Meat items come in two types: consumables and ingredients. Consumable meat can be eaten by player characters and certain hunter pets; when eaten by a player character, consumable meat restores health and (depending on the item) can grant a well fed buff. Meat ingredients are a type of trade good and cannot be eaten by player characters without first being turned into consumables through cooking. Most meat-eating hunter pets can eat meat ingredients.

Some items have meat-themed names and visuals, but do not actually function as meat. These are often quest items such as Inv misc food 51 [Fresh Crawler Meat] or Inv misc food 72 [Basilisk Meat]. There are also two maces, purchasable with Darkmoon Faire Tickets, that resemble legs of meat: Inv misc food 18 [Last Month's Mutton] and Inv misc food 18 [Last Year's Mutton].

Raw meat[]

Removed from game The subject of this section has been removed from World of Warcraft.

World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade introduced raw meat as a food type that could be eaten by dragonhawks, nether rays, ravagers, and serpents. Raw meat was separate from uncooked meat ingredients; it included items like Inv misc pelt wolf ruin 01 [Squashed Rabbit Carcass] and Inv misc food 14 [Partially Digested Meat], allowing hunters to make use of them despite their usual status as vendor trash.

Raw meat as a food type was removed in Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.2, and pets will no longer eat these items.[1]


  • Player characters can eat meat to recover health. Many cooked meat items also provide a well fed buff.
  • Hunters can feed meat to certain pets; some of the more popular pets eat only meat.
  • Many meat items are used as ingredients for foods that can be created by cooking.


Consumable meat[]

Ingredient meat[]

  • Commonly looted from animal mobs, especially beasts.
  • Can be purchased cheaply on the auction house.
