Strange Energy — Emits magic energies when hit. Must have eaten something strange.
Strange Feeling — The residual magic energy heals the player for 10 to 13% and increases damage inflicted by 20% for 20 sec. This effect stacks. Instant. Aura on player gained when running over orbs. Stacks 50 times.
MEATBALL MAD! — Increases the caster's attack speed by 50% and the Physical damage it deals by 250%. The caster cannot be stopped.
Do quick attacks to Meatball to get him to spawn purple orbs, which when walked over, provide a 20% damage buff that stacks up to 50 times. After getting the stack up high enough, pop cooldowns and unload before he berserks.
Meatball will need roughly 71K DPS, as he will go berserk 60 seconds into the encounter.
Meatball dies at around 300K HP. He seems to explode... due to having eaten a gnome. Bort Fizzwaggle thanks you for freeing him, then observes that he needs a shower. Bort casts Teleport: Bort's Place and disappears.
Meatball becomes available as an Order Hall champion after a series of missions ending with  You Beat the Ball of Meat. He is a bodyguard and can accompany the player in the field.
While a bodyguard, he does not have a ground mount if the player mounts up and instead just runs on foot (likely because gnolls have no mount animation), but does ride a [Disc of the Red Flying Cloud] in the air.
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.
The fact that Meatball can be found chained in Torghast may suggest that he was captured by the Mawsworn in Azeroth, or that he found his way into the Shadowlands through the portal in Icecrown.
