Food seemed to be dropping left and right in battles for me. Lady Blackhope netted me a chocolate strawberry!
Food is probably one of the most important parts of the mini-game, in fact, you NEVER want to play a mini-game without some food to feed your pet afterwards, depending on the food, it may give your pet more experience than the actual game, especially if your pet likes that particular snack.
Of course, you *can* feed your pet food that they don't like and they'll eat it. It may take some coercing like Ernie did here. But when push comes to shove, it's all about their favorite foods
Be sure to seek out all the food recipe vendors in the spiral if you're a crafting type. You can get some excellent (and hilarious) food for your pet this way. Check out the Grizzleheim and Dragonspyre food recipes below:
I love that Frosted Drakes Cereal takes a frost beetle to make it. haha!
So go out and discover all the joys of food in the test realm! I especially dig this part of the expansion, KI! Nicely done!
