Magic Eater

Magic Eaters are fished up from Dalaran’s Underbelly. Eating one will give a random buff: Either “Wild Magic” or “Well Fed”:

Wild Magic turns you into a basilisk, roach, whelp, or wisp and prevents you from casting or attacking for 45secs. You may even get a 100% speed increase.

Eating as a basilisk, the food is at the end of your claw (may be hard to see without zooming in)

As a whelp, the food is on one of your wings and you stop flapping in midair as you eat.

If you eat as a wisp, you get a chunk of food floating around your body.

When you eat as a roach, the food is at the end of one of your antenna

Same thing happens while drinking, except that you will see a small mug instead of food. However, eating and drinking will show both animations.

  1. Magic Eaters are like sausages — taste delicious, but you don’t want to know how it’s made.

  2. See, this is why my Warlock is having trouble actually leveling. She can’t get out of Dalaran because of all the buffs and sights to see and things to turn into to. I had totally forgotten about Magic Eaters!
