To Atkins or Not To Atkins? That is a question.

    How important is eating in WoW?
    Should I stop and chow down on something every five minutes?
    Should I only eat when I'm low on health and have no healing potions or bandages?
    What impact does eating have on gameplay?

    If it does have an impact is there any benefit to having a cook or am I better off just buying what I can from NPCs?

  3. There are easy to make foods like tender wolf steak that give you +12 Stamina and +12 Spirit. There is the fairly hard to get recipe Dirge's Kickin' Chimaerok Chops that gives you +25 Stamina. There are others that regenerate mana or health too.

    All of these are nice buffs that are worth getting and keeping a supply of. I always keep at least 10+ tender wolf steaks in my bag.

    From the Blizzard site:

    Although players are not required to eat or drink, they may receive benefits by keeping their characters full!

    In other words, if you eat something that gives you a buff, you'll be "full" for 15 minutes. If you're low on health, eating will "heal" you quicker. If you don't eat, you will not get less experience points, or level slower, or anything else bad. If you eat every five minutes, you will not gain anything, other than the above-mentioned buffs and or healing.
